Four stars of the night ...

... Because three just wasn't enough.

Barry Melrose loved the play in net on Thursday night and made his early top picks all goaltenders.

Martin Brodeur -- The league's career leader in wins and shutouts made 29 saves for his 112th career shutout. The short-handed Devils may need a shutout from him every night in order to get a win.

Tim Thomas -- He earned back the starting job from Tuukka Rask, and now he is making a case to keep it. With 38 saves against the Capitals, Thomas got his fourth straight victory.

Jimmy Howard -- The Red Wings know how to score goals. So with Howard shutting down the Flames in the second and third periods to total 34 saves, Detroit's offense rallied past Calgary.

Martin Biron -- Not a bad start to the season for Biron. The Rangers' goalie had 24 saves in his debut to help New York gets its first win since opening night.
