Consider this my little protest for the switch to "Three Stars" of the Week. Our nightly three stars will return tomorrow.
* How did the Cardinals lose that game?!? Yes I know this is a hockey site but come on - a team has a 20 point lead and the ball with seconds to go in the 3rd quarter and they lose to a team whose offense didn't score a TD all game?!
* Rangers bounced back nicely against New Jersey. After their last game I was curious to see how they would respond
* There is no doubt that Shanahan is the Captain of that team
* I've always been a fan of Justin Williams' play and was shocked when Philadelphia traded him for Markov.
* Dunham played very well for the second straight game. I have a feeling Dipietro isn't too worried about his job though. Someone should make a site keeping track of all the Dipietro jokes - I'm thinking at some point over the next 15 years we may run out of new ones.
* Colorado just isn't the same franchise anymore (haven't been for a while actually). If they're not in playoff contention I wonder when the Sakic to Vancouver rumours will start
* Two more points and 8 SOG for Havlat - he really is a treat to watch with the puck (in the regular season)
* Vancouver outplayed and beat Edmonton. Having Luongo in net must be such a relief for Canucks fans after suffering for so long without an elite goaltender
* The Kings stuck with Detroit for a while but in the end the Wings were too strong and Cloutier once again gave up a couple soft goals
