A Wild Thursday

We pause from our Danny-Marty talk for a quick recap of a terrific Thursday in the NHL:

The Wild's Marian Gaborik had five goals -- the first such outburst in the league since 1996 -- in a 6-3 win over the Rangers. The Penguins blew a 4-0 lead but beat the Bruins in a shootout, 5-4, in a game more notable for Sidney Crosby's first NHL fight (looked like a draw against Boston's Andrew Ference).

Seven of the nine games Thursday were decided by one goal, and that includes the Blues' 3-2 win over Detroit that snapped the Red Wings' 12-game point streak and was produced by Lee Stempniak's game-winner with 5:58 left.

Here's's highlight package from the Wild-Rangers game. You can watch the whole thing or click on the names in the scoring summary to see each goal. Click below to see the video of the Crosby fight.

You can now return to your regular Danny-Marty programming.
