Pittsburgh Penguins rallied from two goals down to overcome the Boston Bruins 3-2.

However the Penguins hit back in the third period, with Chris Kunitz netting first before two goals from Brandon Sutter sealed the win.

Steven Samkos scored his 20th goal of the season as the Tampa Bay Lightning edged out the Florida Panthers 3-2.

Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St Louis also netted for the Lightning, despite the team registering just 13 shots, while Kris Versteeg and Tomas Kopecky were on target for the Panthers.

Marcus Foligno netted twice to help the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers. Thomas Vanek also scored for Buffalo while Derek Stepan got the Rangers on the board.

Pekka Rinne got his fifth shutout of the season as the Nashville Predators beat the Dallas Stars 4-0.

Riley Nash scored twice in the Carolina Hurricanes' 4-0 win over the Washington Capitals and the St Louis Blues overcame the San Jose Sharks 4-2.

Mikkel Boedker scored two goals to help the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 and Blake Wheeler did likewise in the Winnipeg Jets' 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Vancouver Canucks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 following a shootout, the Anaheim Ducks were 2-1 winners over the Minnesota Wild and the Edmonton Oilers eased past the Colorado Avalanche 4-0.
