SCOREBOARD
Thursday, Nov. 6
Tampa Bay at New York Rangers (7 p.m. EST). After getting off to a record start, the New York Rangers have dropped two straight games and look to rebound against the Lightning.

STARS
Wednesday
- Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks, scored twice, including a 190-foot shot into an empty net, to lift surging Anaheim to a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues.
- Jussi Jokinen, Lightning, netted two goals but Tampa Bay's three-game winning streak was snapped with a 4-3 shootout loss at New Jersey.

SUBBING
So far, so good for Kevin Weekes and the New Jersey Devils. One day after the team learned star goalie Martin Brodeur will be sidelined for months, Weekes backstopped the Devils to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. After allowing a shootout goal to Vincent Lecavalier, Weekes stopped Jussi Jokinen and Vaclav Prospal. He made 24 saves through overtime and earned his first win of the season (1-1).

PUT ME IN COACH
emergency start. Manny Malhotra tipped in a rebound with 1:09 left, making the 20-year-old Mason an instant winner after he stopped 22 shots. Mason was recalled Tuesday from Syracuse of the AHL because top goalie Pascal Leclaire was still out with an ankle injury, and backup Fredrik Norrena hurt his groin during the morning skate hours before the opening faceoff.

DUCK SPLASH
Ryan Getzlaf had two goals, and Anaheim teammate Teemu Selanne netted one as they both extended their point streaks to eight games in the Ducks' 5-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers. Selanne has eight goals and five assists during his run, and Getzlaf posted six goals and 11 assists. Getzlaf's three-point night gave him 18 points for the season (six goals, 12 assists) moving him into a tie with Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin for the NHL scoring lead. Anaheim has earned 17 of a possible 18 points in its last nine games (8-0-1).

SIGNED
The Dallas Stars signed former All-Star forward Mark Parrish on Wednesday to a one-year deal worth $500,000. The 31-year-old winger played in 66 games with the Wild last season and had 16 goals and 14 assists. Minnesota bought out the final three years of Parrish's contract in July.

SPEAKING
- New Jersey Devils backup goalie Kevin Weekes, who beat the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday in place of injured starter Martin Brodeur - out until at least February due to an elbow injury.
