Foligno posted a pair of goals and an assist, while James Wisniewski managed the other two scores. Three of the four goals scored by Columbus were on the power play.

Cory Schneider, G, New Jersey Devils: If you like tightly-contested goalie duels, this was the game for you. Schneider put up 30 saves in a 1-0 shutout of the Capitals last night, with Mike Cammalleri putting up the only score on an unassisted goal after a turnover.
Braden Holtby put up a valiant effort for the Caps, with 27 saves on 28 shots. The loss halted Washington’s three-game win streak.
As for Schneider, he has stopped 53 of the last 54 shots to come his way.
Pascal Dupuis, RW, Pittsburgh Penguins: In the 17th annual Hockey Hall of Fame Game last night at Air Canada Centre, Dupuis was the star of the show, logging both goals in a 2-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
After a shuffling of the lines, Dupuis was reunited with his old line-mates Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, which immediately paid off in the win. That said, even though Crosby posted an assist in this one, he’s now gone seven games without a goal.
The Maple Leafs went 0-for-6 on the power play here and snapped a three-game win streak.
Luke Glendening, C, Detroit Red Wings: Glendening had a nice evening last night against Detroit’s rival Blackhawks. He posted a goal and an assist in the 4-1 victory, thrilling the home crowd at Joe Lewis Arena.
The Red Wings capitalized on some Chicago turnovers to tally their first three scores, leading to Detroit’s first regulation win against the Blackhawks in Detroit in their last 12 tries.
Goalie Jimmy Howard anchored the defense here, posting 25 saves on 26 shots.
