Hank Lundqvist made a career-best 50 stops last night in a performance that drew comparisons to Mike Richter's 59-save effort in Vancouver some 19 years ago (a feat which Adam Wodon was immediately reminded of). But then Wade Redden had to go and ruin it by hooking Jordan Staal in overtime. Staal scored the game winner on the resulting power play to give Pittsburgh two points and sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division.

The Rangers picked up a point in defeat and are now tied for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with Atlanta. Both teams have 66 points, but the Thrashers have a pair of games in hand. The blue shirts travel to Washington tomorrow night to face a Capitals club that hasn't lost at home since Dec. 28.

On a positive note, Chris Drury's backhand-from-his-knees goal in the first period made SportCenter's top plays this morning. It was quite impressive.
