Marian Gaborik had two goals and Brad Richards netted the game-winner with one-tenth of a second remaining as the Rangers stunned the Coyotes, 3-2, in Arizona.. The loss snapped a two-game losing streak that had seen the Rangers score only one goal in 120 minutes. The Rangers trailed by a goal entering the third period, but Gaborik scored early in the period before Richards' game-winner. Video replay was needed, but the Rangers got the two points.

Patrik Elias had two goals, one to tie and one to break John MacLean's franchise record in the Devils' 5-3 win over the Canadiens. Three times the Devils had one-goal leads.

Frans Nielsen had a goal in the shootout to help the Islanders to a 2-1 win over the Wild. Andrew MacDonald had the lone regulation goal, and Al Montoya made 20 saves in net.
