When Colton Orr scores, it's not your night.
No. 1 Star: Jiri Tlusty, Carolina Hurricanes
The Hurricanes entered the third-period of their match with the New York Islanders trailing 3-2, but then Tlusty went to work, picking up 4 points in the final 20 minutes. He tied the game 30 seconds into the third, set up two more goals, then iced the 6-4 win in the dying seconds with an empty-netter. Alex Semin had 1 and 2.
No. 2 Star: Shane Doan, Phoenix Coyotes
Doan was in on all three Coyotes goals versus the Colorado Avalanche, scoring twice. He opened the scoring for Phoenix and he closed it as well, potting the 3-2 game-winner with a minute to go in overtime. It was a strange play, as the Avalanche tried to throw the puck around the boards in their zone, only to have it hit the referee and come right out in front. Doan didn't waste the freebie.
No. 3 Star: Brandon Dubinsky, Columbus Blue Jackets
Dubinsky was the key to two great starts for the Blue Jackets in their 6-2 trouncing of the San Jose Sharks. He scored his first of the year and the first of the game just 0:43 into the first. Then, he helped end any hopes the Sharks had of a third-period comeback, assisting on a Nikita Nikitin goal 0:21 into the final frame. Dubsinky's 19:12 was also tops among Columbus forwards. Cody Goloubef scored his first NHL goal in the win.
Honourable Mention: It's still too early to say who won the James van Riemsdyk/Luke Schenn trade, but this play, where van Riemsdyk skates around Schenn like the pylon he's dressed like and scores a beauty:
