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.

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. No. 3 Star: Teddy Purcell, Tampa Bay Lightning Purcell scored ...

Ponikarovsky Deal Should End Parise Trade Talk

The trade deadline looms nearer each day, and NHL analysts are already tearing apart the rosters of the bottom-dwellers of each conference. The Blue Jackets, the Hurricanes, and the Ducks have been deconstructed and sold off in fantasy draft fashion by pundits nearing February 27th, and that includes the members of this site.
