STARS
Tuesday
-Derek Dorsett, Blue Jackets, scored his first NHL goal in a 4-2 win over Vancouver.
-Vincent Lecavalier, Lightning, scored with 3:19 left in overtime for a 3-2 victory over Atlanta and Barry Melrose's first win as coach.

FIRST W
Barry Melrose's first win as Tampa Bay coach nearly got away. The Lightning blew a two-goal lead in the third period and needed a power-play tally from Vincent Lecavalier in overtime to beat Atlanta 3-2 Tuesday.

WORTH A SHOT
When the Maple Leafs and Ducks headed to a shootout Tuesday night, Toronto coach Ron Wilson pulled starting goalie Vesa Toskala and sent in Curtis Joseph. Despite having allowed only 28 percent of shooters to score vs. Toskala's 54, Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne beat Joseph to give the Ducks a 3-2 win.

MILESTONE
.

SPEAKING
``I was playing the percentages. I'm not going to hesitate to do that until we get Tosk a little more practice - a different way of thinking on stopping the other team in shootouts. I had nothing to lose.'' - Toronto coach Ron Wilson, after he pulled starting goalie Vesa Toskala and sent in Curtis Joseph for the shootout, which the Maple Leafs lost anyway in a 3-2 setback against Anaheim.
