WILD MOVE WITHIN A POINT OF LEAGUE-LEADING CAPITALS
Jason Zucker (2-1—3) factored on three of five goals as the Western Conference-leading Wild improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games.

* At 39-13-6 (84 points), the Wild moved within a point of the Capitals (39-11-7, 85 points) for the top record in the League.

Devan Dubnyk (37 saves) improved to 32-10-3 this season (1.97 GAA, .934 SV%, 5 SO) and reclaimed sole possession of the League lead in wins.

SHARKS, OILERS PAD LEAD ATOP PACIFIC DIVISION
The Sharks (35-18-6, 76 points) and Oilers (32-19-8, 72 points) – who rank first and second in the Pacific Division, respectively – each secured victories:

Brent Burns (2-0—2) scored for the third consecutive game (5-1—6) to power the Sharks to victory. Burns paces all blueliners with 27-36—63 in 2016-17 and matched his franchise record for goals in a season by a defenseman from 2015-16. Burns shares the League lead among all skaters with 18-20—38 on the road this season; Elias notes that he became the first defenseman to score at least 18 road goals in a season since Paul Coffey scored 22 such goals in 1984-85 and 1985-86, single-season NHL records for blueliners.

Cam Talbot made 38 saves to help Edmonton snap Chicago’s win streak at five games and improve to 4-1-0 in their last five contests, including three consecutive wins. Talbot, who reached the 30-win mark for the first time in his NHL career, improved to 30-16-7 overall (2.35 GAA, .921 SV%, 5 SO). With the win, the Oilers moved two points ahead of the idle Ducks (30-19-10, 70 points).

SENATORS, PANTHERS CLIMB ATLANTIC DIVISION
The Senators (31-19-6, 68 points) and Panthers (27-20-10, 64 points) each earned wins to climb the Atlantic Division:

* Mark Stone (1-4—5) established career highs for points and assists in a game to become the first Senators player to register five points since Alex Kovalev on Jan. 3, 2010 vs. PHI (4-1—5) and power Ottawa to their fourth win in their last five contests. The Senators climbed within two points of the Atlantic Division-leading Canadiens (31-20-8, 70 points). Ottawa holds three games in hand.

* Florida surrendered a 2-0 lead, but Aleksander Barkov (1-1—2) scored the go-ahead goal 15 seconds into the third period as the Panthers improved to 4-0-0 on their five-game road trip. The Panthers – who own a record of 7-1-0 in their last eight games – moved into third place in the Atlantic Division.

CLUBS INCH CLOSER TO WILD CARD SPOTS
The Sabres (26-23-10, 62 points), Devils (25-23-10, 60 points), Jets (27-29-5, 59 points) and Canucks (26-27-6, 58 points) each secured victories to inch closer to the final Wild Card spots in their respective conferences. In the Eastern Conference, five teams currently outside of a postseason berth are within four points of the final Wild Card position, while in the Western Conference, three teams chasing down the final Wild Card spot are within four points:

Nicholas Baptiste (1-1—2) registered the first multi-point game of his NHL career to help Buffalo snap St. Louis’ win streak at six games and improve to 4-1-0 in their last five contests. The Sabres moved within two points of the idle Bruins (29-23-6, 64 points) for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Cory Schneider made 40 saves and the Devils held off a third-period Islanders rally to improve to 5-2-1 in their last eight games. New Jersey climbed within four points of Boston.

Patrik Laine (28-22—50) became the third rookie in Jets/Thrashers history to reach 50 points in a season, joining Dany Heatley (26-41—67) and Ilya Kovalchuk (29-22—51) in 2001-02. The Jets moved within three points of the Flames (29-26-4, 62 points) for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

* Vancouver surrendered a game-tying goal with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation, but Christopher Tanev scored 34 seconds into overtime to guide the Canucks to victory. Vancouver climbed within four points of Calgary.

Bobrovsky improved to 31-12-3 this season with a 2.17 GAA, .926 SV% and 3 SO, moving into a tie with Devan Dubnyk (31-10-3) for the most wins this season. * Avalanche rookie Mikko Rantanen (60 GP) netted his first career overtime marker as the Avalanche snapped a five-game skid and defeated the Hurricanes in Carolina for the first time since Jan. 12, 2008 (5-4 W). Per Elias, Rantanen became the first Avalanche rookie to score an overtime winner since Tyson Barrie did so on Mar. 30, 2013 (1-0 W vs. NSH).
