Ducks 6, Stars 3
Emerson Etem scored his first career short-handed goal, fielding a pass from just outside the crease from Andrew Cogliano, which turned out to be the difference as he hammered a shot past Stars goalie Jack Campbell for a 4-3 lead with 1:05 left in the second.
Getzlaf and Mathieu Perreault added goals in the final period.

Predators 3, Jets 1
Eric Nystrom, Patrick Hornqvist and Matt Cullen all scored during the second period where Nashville grabbed a 3-0 advantage.
Despite having just seven shots in the second period, the Predators found the twine behind Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec with a shooting percentage of 43 percent and were never really threatened the rest of the way.
With the win, the Predators improve to 5-3-1, while the Jets fall to 4-5-0.

Blue Jackets 3, Canucks 1
R.J. Umberger scored his first goal of the season at 11:14 of the third period, and the Blue Jackets snapped a four-game losing streak with a victory over the Vancouver Canucks.
Marian Gaborik and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets (3-5-0). Columbus earned its first home victory of the season.
Johansen's second goal of the season, an empty-netter with 27 seconds remaining, capped the scoring.
The Canucks (5-4-1) looked tired and lethargic in the fourth game of a seven-game road trip. Henrik Sedin scored Vancouver's only goal. (Editing by Jahmal Corner/Patrick Johnston)
