Columbus 5, Washington 2 – The Blue Jackets are better than the Capitals. That's just the way it is.

Toronto 6, Florida 3 – The Maple Leafs are so streaky. So are the Panthers. So are hockey teams.

Ottawa 5, Tampa Bay 3 – Big win for the Senators, as the Lightning are significantly better than they are.

New Jersey 3, Dallas 2 (OT) – Patrick Elias scores a overtime winner as the Devils beat the Stars in a headline that would have been a big deal 10 years ago.
