Common Theme: Superstars Getting it Going

Standard Spin: All across the league, slow starters are starting to heat things up.  Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton both had 2 point nights to pace the Sharks to a 4-1 win over the suprising Dallas Stars - who seem to be coming back down to earth of late.  Marleau in particular is really starting to turn it on.  He had 2 points in the first 5 games of the year, but now has 6G and 8A in his last 11 games.
