No. 2 Star: Rob Klinkhammer, Phoenix Coyotes Klinkhammer's pair of goals helped lead the Coyotes over the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 in a Sunday matinee. His first goal tied the game at two in the second period, and his second of the afternoon 22 seconds into the third period broke a 3-3 tie and would stand as the game-winning goal.
No. 3 Star: Ben Scrivens, Los Angeles Kings Making his first start of the season, Scrivens stopped 20 shots and recorded his third career shutout as the Kings blanked the Florida Panthers 3-0. Jordan Nolan and Dan Carcillo each had a goal and an assist as LA won their third straight game.
Honorable mention: Shane Doan had a goal and an assist, with his second tally of the year ending up as the insurance marker for the Coyotes ... Tuomo Ruutu returned to the Carolina lineup after missing the first five games of the season while dealing with a hip injury ... It was "Throwback Night" for the Anaheim Ducks as they donned the beautiful eggplant and jade jerseys from their inaugural season of 1993-94. To celebrate the night, Corey Perry scored twice and Ryan Getzlaf and rookie Hampus Lindholm added two points each as the Ducks downed the Ottawa Senators 4-1. Jonas Hiller made 30 saves and Anaheim won 38 of 62 faceoffs ... Here are the introductions for the 14 members of that '93-94 Ducks team who were in attendance Sunday night:
The 56 shots put up by the Ducks doubled as a franchise record for them, as well as for Ottawa in the "shots allowed" department ... Justin Williams' goal in the second period was his 500th NHL point ... Mike Richards pulled off a sweet no-look pass to set up Carcillo's goal:

Anton Khudobin had to leave the game midway through the second period with a lower-body injury ... The Hurricanes went 1-for-9 on the power play ... Just what did Stephen Gionta do here to earn a two-minute tripping call? ... Ottawa has lost four straight ...
