- Nashville Predators remain undefeated in regulation.
- Jaden Schwartz (Blues) registered his first career hattrick.
- Sidney Crosby (Penguins) is the sixth-fastest player to reach 500 assists (behind Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Peter Stastny, Bobby Orr, and Peter Forsberg).

- Kevan Miller (Bruins) suffered an upper body injury during his first period fight
