To likely no one's surprise, Edmonton Oilers forward Sam Gagner was named the NHL's First Star of the Week on Monday.
Gagner collected 11 points in two games - including an amazing eight-point effort in Thursday's 8-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.
With four goals and four assists, Gagner matched the Edmonton mark for points in a contest previously shared by Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky (twice) and Paul Coffey.
New Jersey Devils stud Ilya Kovalchuk was named the league's second star after guiding the Devils to four straight victories after the All-Star break. The Russian had a power-play goal against the New York Rangers before registering a trio of consecutive three-point efforts.
Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer posted consecutive shutouts - with the latter coming after he stopped 49 shots in a 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators.
