• Nets 104, Knicks 95: A late Christmas present for the Nets. Just when people think the Knicks are making strides, they lay this egg. Chris Duhon had a nice 3-point barrage and David Lee had 24 points, but the Nets took this game over from the second quarter on. Brook Lopez had 21 and Yi Jianlian had 22. The Nets shot 51.2 percent from the floor and outscored the Knicks by 14 points from the second and third quarter.
  • Flyers 6, Rangers 0: Suddenly, the Flyers are hot. They handed the Rangers their worst loss of the season. Henrik Lundqivst was pulled after allowing three goals in the first period. That didn't help.

  • Devils 2, Penguins 0: Niclas Bergfors scored 1:48 into the game, and the Devils didn't need any insurance thanks to Martin Brodeur. He made 32 saves in another shutout. Jamie Langenbrunner had an empty-netter.
