Turris led all players with seven points (4-3—7) and a +7 rating (tied) to help the Senators (31-29-14, 76 points) go 3-0-1 and move within six points of a Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.
Bergeron (5-1—6) found the back of the net in all four games, extending his goal-scoring streak to seven contests (8-2—10) while helping the Bruins (52-17-6, 110 points) maintain the top spot in the NHL standings.
Oshie tied for second in the NHL with six points (4-2—6) in three games to help the Blues (50-17-7, 107 points) remain in first place in the Western Conference.
Turris has been one of the few bright spots for the Sens this season. The 24-year-old leads the club with 25 goals, his offensive production making the 2011 trade with Phoenix look better and better with each additional goal.
The fact Turris is locked up through 2017-18 for a cap hit of just $3.5 million is icing on the cake.
It’s been getting that spotlight since the Columbus Blue Jackets faced off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a brisk playoff series, though it wouldn’t be surprising if the bad blood stemmed to Dubinsky’s days with New York.
To some, Dubinsky’s cross-check on Crosby will resonate far more than the end result of this game:
The bottom line is that he’ll get the last laugh, at least for now. (In-game, that moment merely drew a minor penalty.)
That’s because Dubinsky set up the overtime game-winner, and the cherry on the top of that spite sundae came with Crosby being on the ice when it happened:
They’re not just rubbing the Penguins the wrong way.
Cheap shot on a superstar, a little uncalled goalie interference and presto – Blue Jackets win!
The Buffalo Sabres probably deserved better during at least some chunks of their six-game skid, yet Jack Eichel swooped in on Friday to remind fans that there’s a light shining at the end of the tunnel.
You can watch his goal from tonight’s eventual 4-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes in the video above.
That’s not necessarily the absolute height of his on-ice magic, yet it clearly gave his team a lift:
Coach Bylsma: Feel like after Jack's goal, the game changed for us. #gamechanger
