Saturday in Review

Tonight's Three Stars

1. Marc Savard - 2 G, 3 A, 21:53 TOI
2. Vincent Lecavalier - 4 A, +2
3. Mats Sundin - 2 G, 1 A, +1, 5 SOG

Game Thoughts
* It wasn't especially pretty, but Iginla scored late to lead Calgary to a 3-2 victory
* Tkachuk and Guerin each scored and combined for 12 SOG
* Detroit outshot Columbus 37-17 and won 4-1
* Zetterberg scored for the second straight game while Lidstrom was +4
* Cleary had a pair, including one shorthanded
* Fedorov didn't exactly get a warm reception back in Detroit
* Schneider missed his third straight with a groin injury
* Brunette had a pair including the winner
* Vancouver had almost double the shots but Theodore played well once again

* Atlanta got goals from unlikely sources - Vigier, Larson, McCarthy and 1 goal, 1 assist by Hossa
* DiPietro gave up 4 on 19 shots but he has played very well recently
* Toivonen gave up 5 goals on 21 shots and the Bruins still won
* Savard had a five point night, which gives him 8 points in two games
* Lecavalier added four assists and St. Louis had a goal and an assist - I wonder which of the two will be moved?
* The Bruins tied it late and won it in OT - their 4th win of the year
* Tampa still is waiting for their first goal by a defenceman
* The streak is over for Malkin - 0 points tonight although another star rookie (Matt Carle) had a goal
* Cheechoo was tossed for boarding just over a minute into the game. Playing with Mike Grier, Thornton had three assists

* The nightmare continues in Philly as the Flyers fell to Washington
* Ovechkin and Clymer each had two goals (Clymer's first two of the season)
* Esche was hoping to impress, but didn't - he allowed four goals on 8 shots
* Nashville won its 7th straight road game in Minnesota
* Shea Webber continues to be impressive
* LA fell to Phoenix by a 6-4 score
* Shane Doan made his return after a short absence and had two goals
* Cujo was pulled after allowing 2 goals on 3 shots
* Garon was pulled after allowing 5 goals on 17 shots
* Rookie star Anze Kopitar scored once again
* The Leafs had a huge and rare win in Buffalo
* Much worse news for the Sabres in the fact that Afinogenov has a separated shoulder
* The Leafs took control in the 2nd period and never looked back - they had 17 shots and 3 goals

* In a low-scoring affair, the Devils beat Montreal 2-1
* Chris Higgins is the surprise player so far this year as he continues to produce
* Ottawa, like Philadelphia are getting close to the point where a trade is NEEDED. The Sens dropped a 3-2 decision to the Canes.
* Ray Whitney had a three-point night while Ottawa was outshot 40-26.
* Brind'Amour notched point #1000
