Hockey Night's 3 Stars
CBCSports.ca senior reporter Tim Wharnsby names the top performers in the NHL from the weekend.
Sid the Kid has his groove back. After a slow start to the season, in which he was held pointless for five consecutive games in late October and early November, Crosby moved into the league's top-10 point leaders with his fourth career hat trick and two assists in the Penguins' 8-3 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday.
Rolston's production has increased since he was put on a line with Patrik Elias. Rolston scored twice and set up two Elias goals for the injury depleted Devils in their impressive 6-1 victory against the New York Islanders on Saturday. The 36-year-old Rolston has four goals and six points in his past two games.
The 29-year-old stay-at-home defenceman from Carolina, Alta., scored twice, including in overtime, to lead his Coyotes to a 3-2 win in Anaheim on Sunday. He now has 24 goals in 339 career games and five game-winners.
