Lewiston, who has been on the losing end of several football-like scores lately, got three field goals to break Shawinigan's astounding 15 game win streak. Ward (pictured) is just six points from matching last year's career high point total.

Anybody know what the NHL record is for combined overtime and shootout losses since the penalty shot session was instituted after the lockout?
Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 35 shots before going 0-for-2 in the shootout to take yet another shootout loss.

NYR- Naslund, Zherdev
I remain amazed that a team with Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, and Jussi Jokinen on the roster is this incredibly bad in the shootout. Still, the team has to be thankful to get a late goal from the timeless Mark Recchi to claim a point for their efforts tonight.
Steven Stamkos had 1 shot and 3 hits and was 17% on draws in 16:06. He also got in a fight with Nikolai Zherdev. You fill in the punch line.
Raise your hand if you like offense.
Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 34 shots in the win.

Blair Jones had a three point night as he is riding a mini hot streak with 6 points in the last 3 games. He has 13 points in 20 games now and he's on a pace to put up a career best season in points despite playing less minutes than he was last season.
