1. Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado Avalanche
Landeskog became the eighth player in Avalanche/Nordiques history to reach 500 points with the franchise after a goal and two-assist night against the Ducks. Colorado won 4-1, led by the captain and 24 saves from Jonas Johansson, who now has consecutive wins against Anaheim and three victories in his last four starts.
2. T.J. Oshie, Washington Capitals
Oshie reached 600 career points with a three-point night during an 8-1 rout of the Bruins. He now has points in his last three games and six points total over that stretch. Every Capitals forward recorded a point, with six of them picking two. Despite the goal barrage, Alex Ovechkin did not have any of them, even with a game-high 10 shots on net.
3. Marc-Andre Fleury, Vegas Golden Knights
Tomas Nosek provided the goal and Fleury stopped all 14 shots he faced in a 1-0 win over the Coyotes. The shutout was Fleury’s fifth of the season and the 66th of his career. He’s now tied with Patrick Roy for 15th on the NHL’s all-time shutout list and tied with Ed Belfour for fourth in league history with 484 wins.

BREAK UP THE SABRES!
Firing Ralph Krueger seems to have been the right idea. Since bringing on Don Granato as interim coach, Buffalo has earned 10 points in 13 games. They had a total of 15 in 28 games under Krueger. After a six-game losing streak to start his tenure behind the bench, the Sabres are 4-2-1 in their last seven games under Granato.
Saves like this from Linus Ullmark sure do help:
SUSPENSION OR NO SUSPENSION?
According to Coyotes insider Craig Morgan, Gross has a knee injury and a concussion.
