Tampa Bay 4, New Jersey 3: Martin St. Louis scored three goals and set up another to lead the Lightning. The Devils dropped their second straight game after going 9-1-1 since the All-Star break. The setback spoiled the debut of defenseman Marek Zidlicky, who New Jersey acquired from Minnesota on Friday.
Pittsburgh 4, Columbus 2: Evgeni Malkin scored his 37th goal of the season, Brad Thiessen made 21 saves in his NHL debut and the Penguins won for the ninth time in their last 10 home games.
Dallas 3, Vancouver 2 (OT): Loui Eriksson's goal at 3:52 of overtime sent the Stars to their fourth consecutive victory. Mike Ribeiro scored the tying goal for Dallas with 52.5 seconds left in regulation.
Ottawa 3, N.Y. Islanders 2: Robin Lehner, making his first start since being recalled from the minor to replace the injured Craig Anderson, made 28 saves for the Senators. Before the game, the Senators acquired some insurance, trading for 6-foot-7 goalie Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues.
Florida 4, Montreal 2: Stephen Weiss scored two goals for the Panthers, who improved to 3-0 against Montreal this season. Brian Campbell also scored for Florida.
Minnesota 4, San Jose 3: Jed Ortmeyer's first goal of the season, with 4:13 left in the game, was the winner for the Wild. The Sharks played more than half of the night without head coach Todd McLellan, who was inadvertently hit in the head with a stick during a play in front of the bench early in the second period.
Anaheim 3, Chicago 1: Teemu Selanne of the Ducks scored a power-play goal and had an assist to move into 20th place on the NHL's career scoring list. Patrick Kane ended the Blackhawks' monthlong 0-for-39 power-play drought with a first-period goal.
