Ottawa's Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley piled on a familiar victim, each scoring twice against Pittsburgh in a 4-1 win. Spezza also assisted on Heatley's goals. The Senators ended a triumphant roadtrip in style, finishing with a 4-0-1 record; the Penguins continued to stumble after winning seven of a recent eight. In other hockey excitement:
- With both teams scoreless until the third period, Colorado scored twice, then held off a furious Nashville rally in an uncommon 2-1 road win.
