CBCSports.ca senior reporter Tim Wharnsby names the top performers from Monday night in the NHL.

FIRST STAR: Troy Brouwer, F, Chicago Blackhawks

The former WHL scoring champion with the Moose Jaw Warriors netted the game winner on the power play and added two assists in Chicago's 4-1 victory over Los Angeles. It was the first three-point game of the 24-year-old right-winger's career.

SECOND STAR: Duncan Keith, D, Blackhawks

A strong candidate to be on Canada's blue-line at the Vancouver Olympics, Keith continued to provide offence for the Blackhawks with two assists.

THIRD STAR: Jonathan Toews, F, Blackhawks

The Chicago captain returned after a six-game absence because of a concussion and scored a power-play goal. Chicago went 3-2-1 without Toews in the lineup.
