Allan Muir: Three stars from Thursday's games

Matt Carkner, Ottawa Senators: Everyone knows what to expect out of Carkner. He's the ultimate foot soldier, good for a couple hits, a couple blocks and a solid physical presence in his own zone. But, after scoring just twice in 82 games this season, even his own mom wouldn't have picked him to deliver a season-saving goal in triple overtime. Carkner's point blast at 47:06 of OT appeared to bounce off a Penguins' defender before slipping past Marc-Andre Fleury, sealing a 4-3 win for the Sens and scripting a happy ending to the longest game in franchise history.
