Alex Ovechkin's first goal of the 2013 season also happened to represent the first game-winner for the Washington Capitals, who beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Sunday.

Ovechkin seemed due, as he now has just one tally on 18 shots this season. He nearly scored another time, but missed an open net late in the game. Still, Ovi owners must feel better as he looked more like his former dominant self - including spending more time alongside Nicklas Backstrom.

Matt Duchene was a primary factor in Colorado's 7-3 win over Vancouver on Friday night.

His feed to Jarome Iginla was just filthy to tie the game at one late in the first. Duchene's dish to Jamie McGinn to tie the game at two in the second was just as pretty. It was his burst of speed to create a breakaway for himself in the third that was jaw-dropping, he scored to make it 5-2. Through eight games he now has seven points (three goals). It's like he's good at hockey, or something.

It was a brutal game for Eddie Lack in Denver on Friday night, as he surrendered all seven of Colorado's goals in the 7-3 loss.

Six of the seven goals came at even strength as only Erik Johnson's scored Colorado's only PPG in the second to go up 3-2, and for good. Even though the Avs outshot the Canucks 47-28, Lack just stunk and his performance was the key difference in the game. And with Ryan Miller having played the previous night, the net was Lack's to make a statement with.

Corey Perry had another great night, netting a pretty goal and assist as well as screening for a third Anaheim goal in their 4-1 win over Columbus on Friday night.

Perry took Sami Vatanen's slap-pass by the goal line and dangled his way across Sergei Bobrovsky's crease for a dazzling powerplay goal to open the scoring 88-seconds in. Seven minutes later he was the screen for Vatanen's PPG. Later he set up Devante Smith-Pelley slick redirection to make it 3-1 by mid game. Perry just might be out for another MVP trophy this season.

Jonathan Drouin scored his first career goal on Ondrej Pavelec, in Friday night's win in Winnipeg.

Credit Nikita Kucherov for the nifty assist as he drifted to the left while behind Pavelec, taking the netminder's focus away from the cutting Drouin who slammed home the one-timer. Perhaps Stamkos isn't the only teammate the young phenom has chemistry with. Drouin also assisted on Stamkos's goal to open the scoring on way to a 4-2 win.

Nikita Kucherov set a career high for points in a game with his three helpers on Friday night in Winnipeg.

All three were beauties as Tampa Bay took the game over in the second period. Kucherov now has five points (all assists) through eight games this season. He skated 15:43 including 2:18 on the powerplay. The Bolts would go on to win 4-2.

Ondrej Pavelec had another bad game Friday night, getting lit up by Tampa Bay for four goals on just 18 shots.

In just two periods as well. It can be argued that Pavelec was let down by his defense, allowing Tampa to whip around the puck as they desired. But upon further review it looks like Tampa's plan was to force Pavelec to move laterally, which he failed to do quickly enough on all four goals. He was replaced by Michael Hutchinson to begin the third. Winnipeg outshot Tampa 42-27 in the 4-2 loss.

Ben Bishop was outstanding in Winnipeg on Friday night, stopping 40-42 shots sent his way.

Winnipeg also had five powerplays, including a 5-on-3 late in the first. However they're powerplay goal came in the second. No matter the order, Bishop was sharp and could have been forgiven if he let in five or six instead. Tampa won 4-2 mainly due to his efforts.

Damien Brunner scored a wildly lucky goal to tie the Devils up at two against Dallas, Friday night.

Patrik Elias started by grindind his way through three Stars at the offensive blue line midway through the third with the Devils down 2-1. After falling while being forced wide by Jordie Benn, Elias punched the puck into Kari Lehtonen's skates, who accidentally kicked it to his right where Brunner came rushing in for the slam dunk. Go find a replay. The goal was Brunner's first of the season, and credit him for being there. He finished with a game-high six shots on goal over 19:14 of ice time.

Cory Schneider stood tall Friday night against Dallas, turning away 35-37 shots through overtime before losing 3-2 in the shootout.

I'd say, "again", but this is just the first shootout loss of the season. Schneider was a big reason why the Devils even got one point against Dallas, turning away several solid scoring chances throughout the game. However, Patrick Eaves' goal to make it 2-1 Dallas was very soft. Schneider needs to seal the short side on that one, just as he had to be better in the shootouts. Jamie Benn's winner was equally soft, albeit to the far side. Continue to deploy Schneider with confidence.

Joe Pavelski is expected serve as the San Jose Sharks' third-line center on Saturday.

Pavelski's projected linemates are Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney. Pavelski has gotten off to a great start with four goals and eight points in eight games, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan thinks moving Pavelski down to the third line will help them defensively. "We're kind of going in waves where we have a line or two that's responsible and then one that falls off, and it varies," McLellan said. "It’s not just the top lines or the third or fourth lines. It varies. We're trying to find some balance defensively. I think offensively we've been fine." Pavelski has been playing primarily with Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl this season.

Alex Stalock will start for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Stalock has a 2.33 GAA and .933 save percentage in three games this season. He'll play against the Buffalo Sabres, which are typically a favorable team for opposing goaltenders.
