Four stars of the night ...
... Because three just wasn't enough.
Matthew Barnaby picked his four stars of the night: Washington's Alexander Semin, Atlanta's Chris Mason, Carolina's Eric Staal and Boston's Brad Marchand.
- Tim Thomas made 33 saves in his seventh straight win, and Marchand and Michael Ryder had a goal and assist each to lift the Bruins over the Ryan Miller-less Sabres. Bruins 5, Sabres 2 »
- After the Capitals gave up a big lead, Semin tied the game near the end of regulation and sealed the win with the final goal in the shootout. Capitals 5, Maple Leafs 4 (SO) »
- Carolina finally figured out how to score at home after being shut out twice and set a season high with seven goals. Hurricanes 7, Islanders 2 »
- Mason made 52 saves and Niclas Bergfors scored the game winner to give the Thrashers a win despite the Panthers' franchise-record 55 shots. Thrashers 4, Panthers 3 »
- Rookie Bradley Mills scored his first NHL goal with 3:51 left in the third period to snap a tie, and the Devils survived after goalie Martin Brodeur left with a bruised elbow. Devils 5, Blackhawks 3 »
- Loui Eriksson scored twice -- including a penalty-shot goal -- Kari Lehtonen made 21 saves, and the Stars earned a fight-filled victory over Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. Stars 5, Penguins 2 »
- Mike Modano and Justin Abdelkader scored in the second period to propel the Red Wings to their fifth win in six games. Red Wings 2, Flames 1 »
- Ed Jovanovski had the first three-goal game of his 15-year career and the Coyotes overcame some early defensive miscues to win. Coyotes 4, Predators 3 »
- Kyle Palmieri scored the tying goal late in regulation of his first NHL game and Ryan Getzlaf netted the winner 2:53 into overtime to complete the Ducks' rally. Ducks 3, Lightning 2 (OT) »
