Korpikoski's first goal against the Anaheim Ducks gave Phoenix a 2-1, but it was his goal 1:01 after Corey Perry(notes) tied things up gave the Coyotes the lead for good in a 5-2 win. Shane Doan(notes) assisted on both of Korpikoski's goals and added an empty-netter late in the third period and Ilya Bryzgalov(notes) made 36 saves for his 30th win.
Just over 24 hours after being shutout by Montreal, the Penguins bounced back with a 5-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers. Kunitz tallied twice to give him 20 on the year and Marc-Andre Fleury(notes) made 28 saves. Tyler Kennedy(notes) registered three helpers and Matt Cooke(notes) recorded one for his 300th NHL point.
Hours after the team learned about the passing of Rick Martin, Ennis powered the Sabres past the Ottawa Senators with a two-goal night during a 6-4 win. Fellow rookie Jhonas Enroth(notes) stopped 34 shots for his third straight victory. Ennis' first goal came at even-strength, despite how Ottawa's defense played it:
Honorable mention: After Jonathan Toews'(notes) goal with 39 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, Mike Knuble(notes) waited until there was 1:09 left in the extra period to give Washington a 4-3 victory over Chicago. Braden Holtby(notes) made 27 saves for his sixth win in seven starts. Toews' goal gives him 31 points in his last 19 games ... Jamie Langenbrunner's(notes) game-tying goal with 43 seconds to go in the third didn't hold up long as 23 seconds later Michal Handzus(notes) put home the winner for Los Angeles. The Kings' 3-2 win over Dallas gives them a 7-2-1 record in their last 10 games ... Corey Perry's two goals now give him five in his last three games.
Did you know? Honoring Rick Martin, every Sabres player wore a helmet sticker featuring Martin's name, his uniform number 7, and a fleur-de-lis. The coaching staff wore the sticker on their lapels. (AP)
Here's the pre-game tribute for Martin:
Dishonorable mention: Edmonton managed just two shots in the first period against Pittsburgh ... Chicago has now lost three in a row.
