• Thrashers 5, Rangers 3: Henrik Lunqvist returned, but it wasn't enough for the Rangers, who lost without Chris Drury and Brandon Dubinsky. The former has a concussion and the latter has a broken hand. Not good. Artem Anisimov and Marian Gaborik helped erase two one-goal deficits, but the Rangers wilted after that. This was their first game back after a long road trip to Canada, and they've lost eight of 11 (with one shootout loss.)
  • Devils 4, Penguins 1: That's nine straight road wins for the Devils, and that's one shy of the record to start the season. Niclas Bergfors had a goal and two assists. The Devils have now tied for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals also have 26 points. Zach Parise had a goal and Travis Zajac had three assists.
