The teams exchanged scores in the second period before Kesler's 13th and 14th goals of the season swung it Vancouver's way.

Dwight King scored the only goal of the shootout in the ninth round as the Los Angeles Kings scraped past the Anaheim Ducks 3-2.

Kari Lehtonen's 47 saves helped the Dallas Stars to a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, whose winning run was halted at six games.

Nick Foligno scored the only goal in the Columbus Blue Jackets' 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, while the San Jose Sharks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2.
