CBCSports.ca senior reporter Tim Wharnsby discusses the top performers in the NHL over the weekend.

FIRST STAR: Roberto Luongo, Vancouver

The Canucks goalie stopped 62 of 63 shots in a pair of weekend home victories over the Toronto Maple Leafs and  Edmonton Oilers. He enjoyed a 27-save shutout against Edmonton on Sunday for his 21st blanking in a Canucks sweater to set a franchise mark that was previously held by Kirk McLean.

SECOND STAR: Mike Cammalleri, Montreal

The Canadiens forward scored three times, including the overtime winner, and assisted on a power-play goal from Marc-Andre Bergeron in Montreal's 5-4 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday. The Habs won three in a row last week.

THIRD STAR: Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles

The Slovenian sniper scored two goals in the Kings' 6-2 victory over Columbus on Sunday to push him to the lead league in goals (10) and points (21) in 12 games.
