Carey Price made 24 saves on Thursday night, and the Habs needed each and every one of them, as Montreal squeaked by New York 1-0.

Price has won four straight games and has not allowed more than two goals in his past five games for the Canadiens. Of course, we're not including his performance for Team Foligno in Sunday's All Star Game. Price improves to 26-10-2 this year with a .931 save percentage and 2.09 goals against average.

Nash, formerly the league's leading scorer, has slowed down since his hot start. The big winger has points in just one of his last seven games, though his stats still look pretty good as he's got 43 points in 46 games so far. The Rangers will look to rediscover their offense on Saturday versus Carolina.

Henrik Lundqvist was perfect through 55 minutes, but the Rangers' goaltender was beaten late in the third period as the Habs prevailed 1-0 over their rivals on Thursday.

Lundqvist stopped 25 of 26 shots overall, but was out-duelled by Carey Price in a tight, tense showdown at Madison Square Garden. Lundqvist has now dropped both of his starts since the All Star Break, bringing his record to 23-11-3 with a .921 save percentage and 2.26 goals against average.

Tuukka Rask made 43 saves to lift Boston to a 5-2 victory over the Islanders on Thursday night.

Rask has just one regulation loss in 2015, as the 27-year-old is breaking out of his early season mediocrity in a big way lately. Rask has not allowed more than two goals in his past five games and is 6-1-1 in his past eight games. Overall, Rask is 21-11-7 this season with a .920 save percentage and 2.34 goals against average.

The Isles were all over the Bruins, outshooting them 45-32, but Tuukka Rask out-duelled Halak in a tense game between two Eastern teams currently in playoff spots. Halak falls to 26-10-0 with a .912 save percentage and 2.42 goals against average.
Jan 29 - 10:28 PM

John Tavares had a goal and an assist in the Islanders' 5-2 loss to Boston on Thursday night.

The pair of points extended the 24-year-old's streak to five straight games on the scoresheet. In that span Tavares has four goals and five assists for nine points, just a few shy of his output at Sunday's All Star Game. The captain will look to get his team on track for Saturday night's game against the Red Wings.
Jan 29 - 10:22 PM

Milan Lucic had a goal and two assists in Thursday night's 5-2 win over the Metropolitan leading Islanders.

Thursday nights are by far Lucic's most productive night of the week. The 26-year-old has 11 points in 11 games on Thursday night's this season and 28 overall in 46 games this season. Lucic will be in tough continuing his production on Saturday night against the Kings, as he has no points through 12 Saturday games this season.

Darcy Kuemper is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Calgary.

Kuemper is actually on a conditioning assignment with Minnesota's farm team in Iowa. After a great start to the season, Kuemper has fallen apart. Erik Haula and Christian Folin are also healthy scratches.
Jan 29 - 9:06 PM

David Wolf, Tyler Wotherspoon and Sven Baertschi are healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Minnesota.

Wolf is a 25-year-old German rookie who has yet to play a game in the NHL. This is his first season as a pro in North America. These three players are healthy scratches on a regular basis.
Jan 29 - 9:04 PM

Sean Monahan is currently on a five-game point streak.

Monahan has notched six points in those five games. The 20-year-old has been a bright spot for the Flames since entering the league last season. Monahan posted a 22-goal season in his first year, and is now on pace to score 26 this year. He should be an important piece of the Flames' roster for many years to come.
Jan 29 - 8:15 PM

Johnny Gaudreau is on a three-game point streak heading into Thursday's game.

Gaudreau has also picked up a point in five of Calgary's last six games. Overall, the 21-year-old is having a fine rookie campaign. He has 15 goals and 37 points in 47 games this season. His arrow is only pointing up.
Jan 29 - 8:12 PM

Zach Parise has scored five goals in his last five games.

The Wild forward has six points in those five games. There's little doubt that Parise is the offensive catalyst for Minnesota. The 30-year-old has 19 goals and 36 points in 40 games this season. He continues to be a top-notch point-producer in the NHL.
