Quickie recap

First to 10
New Jersey became the first NHL team to lose 10 games in regulation when the Rangers earned a 3-0 victory over the Devils. Henrik Lundqvist made 33 saves and Brandon Dubinsky scored twice.

Not this time
Tim Thomas' magic against Washington ran out. Thomas gave up three goals and was pulled in Washington's 5-3 win over Boston. The Capitals actually blew a 3-0 lead in the third period before John Carlson's goal late in the third broke the tie. Mike Green had a goal and assist.

Remember him?
Benoit Pouliot scored twice in the second period to erase a 2-1 deficit in Montreal's 3-2 win over Buffalo. Carey Price made 29 saves.

There he is
--Stephen Weiss scored two goals and one assist to lead Florida to a 7-4 win over Carolina.
--Martin Havlat's first goal of the season broke a 1-1 tie in Minnesota's 2-1 win over Calgary. Niklas Backstrom made 33 saves and Cal Clutterbuck had a goal, eight hits and five blocked shots. That's what we call a helluva fantasy game.

My Swede is better than yours
Loui Eriksson scored twice and had two assists and Brad Richards had three points (two goals) as Dallas doubled up Phoenix, 6-3.

Back on top
Detroit went one point ahead of St. Louis in the Central Division following a 3-1 win over Edmonton fueled by three Daniel Cleary points (one goal) and 29 saves from Jimmy Howard.

Blow 'em up
Three goals in under seven minutes in the second period helped doom Pittsburgh to a 3-2 loss at Anaheim. Bobby Ryan had a goal and assist and Jonas Hiller made 30 saves.
