The game-winner was Gaborik's career-high 40th goal and his franchise-record 80th point.

KANE IS ABLE
Patrick Kane scored the only goal in a shootout and tallied an assist in Chicago's 5-4 victory over Columbus on Sunday. The assist was Kane's 48th of the season, breaking the Blackhawks rookie record set by coach Denis Savard (1980-81) and Steve Larmer ('82-83).

SPEAKING
``I had no idea. It's probably the only record I'm going to break. I'm sorry I had to spoil his birthday. It was the last day I could do it, too.'' - Detroit Johan Franzen, after his record sixth game-winning goal of the month lifted the Red Wings over Nashville 1-0 on Sunday. Franzen broke the previous franchise mark held by Henrik Zetterberg and Gordie Howe, who was honored in a pregame ceremony on the eve of his 80th birthday.
