Nightly Recap: Crosby Extends Point Streak to 18

Boston 5 - Toronto 2 - Peter Schaefer had three points, including two third period goals and Tim Thomas stopped 34. After Stepping in for the injured Manny Fernandez, Thomas has put up amazing numbers this year with a record of 7-4-2, coming into the game he had a 1.65 GAA and .950 save percentage. Give it up for Timmy, puts it all out there every night.

New York Rangers 4 - Philadelphia 3 (SO)
- Brendan Shanahan scored the shootout winner, snapping a shot over the shoulder of Marty Biron. Shanny may be 38 but he still has a lightning quick release, he is 2/3 on shootouts this year. Scott Gomez and Sean Avery had two points each for the Rangers. Gomez now has an 8 game point streak (11 points) after his horrendously slow start. Avery has posted 7 points in his past 5. He may be hated by everyone in the league, but unlike other goons he's got skillz.
