Watching Subban in the Canadiens' comeback 5-4 OT win over the Ottawa Senators was watching one of the most explosive players in the game at work. Subban picked up assists on all three of the Habs' goals during their late third-period flurry to tie the game, in addition to playing a game-high 28:55 and registering a game-high 7 shots on goal. Dude's good.
Bishop won his 31st game of the season for the Lightning in a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils, a franchise record, and he did it style, stopping all 23 shots he faced for the shutout. These were the best saves right here:
Honorable mention: Anders Nilsson stopped 33 shots as the New York Islanders topped the Buffalo Sabres, 4-1... Ryan Johansen scored the shootout winner as the Columbus Blue Jackets edged the Minnesota Wild, 2-1... Shane Doan's 350th career goal stood up as the game-winner in a 3-2 Phoenix Coyotes victory over the Calgary Flames... Patrick Maroon and Tim Jackman scored for the Anaheim Ducks, who beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1... Alexander Steen hit 30 goals as the St. Louis Blues cruised past the Nashville Predators, 4-1... Steve Mason stopped 25 and Matt Read scored twice as the Philadelphia Flyers made quick work of the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1. Check out this beautiful passing play on Read's second:
Did You Know? The St. Louis Blues are now 19-0-2 against their own Central Division.
Dishonorable mention: There was nothing quite like Ottawa losing a 4-1 lead with four minutes to go in regulation. Even more disheartening is that the loss could very well be the end of their playoff hopes... What are you doing, Joni Ortio?
