Some nights are all about strong goaltending, but Saturday was not one of those nights. These four stars all found their way into the net on more than one occasion.

Henrik Zetterberg -- The Red Wings' center opened the scoring on the power play, tied the game in the third, assisted on the game winner and added another assist just for kicks. Zetterberg's four-point performance on a night the Wings had to rally past the Ducks is enough to outshine Pavel Datsyuk's winning score.

Brad Richardson -- At 25 years, 8 months, Richardson came up big all evening for the Kings with three goals against his old team. Richardson's tiebreaking short-handed tally late in the third period gave the Kings their fourth win in five games.

Alexander Semin -- Alex Ovechkin did nothing, the power play came up empty and the Caps won in overtime. How does that happen? Alexander Semin scores three goals. Semin, who had two goals in his first seven games, recorded his fourth career hat trick and his first since February.

John Tavares -- The No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft was all the Islanders' offense had going for it against the Panthers. Tavares had his first three-goal game in the NHL, but all didn't end well. "It doesn't mean a lot. We didn't get the two points," Tavares said after the loss.
