ANA @ CBJ - 8:10 of the First Period

At 8:10 of the first period in the Ducks/Blue Jackets game, Brandon Dubinsky shot the puck into the net after Cam Atkinson used his hand to pass the puck to teammate Mark Letestu. According to Rule 79.1 "A player shall be permitted to stop or 'bat' a puck in the air with his open hand, or push it along the ice with his hand, and the play shall not be stopped unless, in the opinion of the on-ice officials, he has directed the puck to a teammate, or has allowed his team to gain an advantage, and subsequently possession and control of the puck is obtained by a player of the offending team, either directly or deflected off any player or official." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Columbus.

Stalock gets first NHL start for Sharks

OTTAWA -- San Jose Sharks backup goalie Alex Stalock will make his first NHL start against the Ottawa Senators on Sunday as Antti Niemi finally gets a rest.

Niemi stopped 22 shots Saturday in San Jose's 2-0 win against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre for his second shutout in three games. He has started all 11 games as the Sharks have gotten off to a league-leading 9-1-1 start.

Stalock's three previous games with the Sharks were all relief appearances, including two last season. He missed nearly a year after having surgery to repair a nerve behind his knee that was severed in a minor league game on February 4, 2011, just three days after he won his NHL debut.

San Jose coach Todd McLellan felt that starting Stalock might spur his teammates to summon some extra effort for a strong finish to their eastern swing.

"Time to get him in and this is a great opportunity for him," McLellan said prior to the game Sunday at Canadian Tire Centre. "I'd like to think that our guys will play really hard for him. It might be a good thing for us playing Alex tonight. Back end of a long road trip, back to back, maybe guys will dig in a little bit more and we'll empty the tanks."

Varlamov, Avalanche seek to continue torrid start

DENVER -- Off to the best start in franchise history, the Central Division-leading Colorado Avalanche close out a two-game homestand Sunday evening against the Winnipeg Jets at Pepsi Center.

The Avalanche have posted a 9-1-0 record to tie the 1994-95 Quebec Nordiques, who also won nine of their first 10 games and went 12-1-0 in their first 13 games. The Avalanche also registered 18 points in their first 10 games in the 2000-01 Stanley Cup championship season when they went 8-0-2 and improved to 9-0-2 before losing in regulation for the first time.

Semyon Varlamov will start in goal for the Avalanche, who have won three games in a row. Varlamov has won six of seven starts with a 1.73 goals-against average and .948 save percentage.

Lineup changes for banged up Ducks, Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS -- The Columbus Blue Jackets and Anaheim Ducks enter their game Sunday at Nationwide Arena banged up from victories on Friday.

While the Ducks won 2-1 in Ottawa, they lost forward Jakob Silfverberg for four-to-six weeks because of a broken right hand, the result of a slash by the Senators' Jared Cowen. Anaheim will also be without center Mathieu Perreault (wrist) on Sunday.

Peter Holland was recalled from Norfolk of the American Hockey League and will play on the fourth line. Kyle Palmieri returns to the lineup and Nick Bonino will move to the second line from the fourth.

"We've got depth," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "That's one great thing this organization has. A guy like Kyle Palmieri hasn't played as many minutes as he likes gets a chance now to step in.

"You can't dwell on injuries. Somebody has to do his job. Now this is Peter Holland's chance. He had a couple before. This might be his best chance to stick with the team forever."

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
