No. 1 Star: Dustin Jeffrey, Pittsburgh Penguins
The Montreal Canadiens jumped out to a 3-1 lead in this game, but they couldn't stop the Penguins' dominant centre. No, not Evgeni Malkin -- Dustin Jeffrey, who scored twice and added an assist to keep the Penguins in the game. Speaking of Malkin though, he eventually went into beast mode and scored the game-tying goal.
Rawr! Beast mode! While in beast mode, Malkin also took a moment to score the shootout winner as the Penguins eked out a 5-4 comeback win.
No. 2 Star: Jussi Jokinen, Carolina Hurricanes
On Tuesday, the Capitals had a chance to take over top spot in the Southeast and they put in a poor performance, falling 3-0 to the New York Islanders. Friday, they had the same opportunity: they did the same thing by the same 3-0 score. Not ideal. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes were led by Jokinen, who scored shorthanded in the first and on the powerplay in the second.
