Hockey Night's 3 Stars
CBCSports.ca senior reporter Tim Wharnsby names the top performers in the NHL from Tuesday night.
FIRST STAR: Joel Ward, F, Nashville
Ward scored a goal and set up two more, including David Legwand's game winner, in the Predators' 4-3 victory against San Jose.
The 28-year-old Ward is one of the rare players to have made the jump to the NHL after playing Canadian university hockey. After four seasons with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League, he played four years at the University of Prince Edward Island.
SECOND STAR: Mike Fisher, F, Ottawa
The speedy Fisher scored twice in the Senators' 3-2 win against their provincial rivals from Toronto. Fisher already has nine goals this season and is on track to surpass his career high of 23 set in 2007-08.
THIRD STAR: Ryan Wilson, D, Colorado
The 22-year-old Wilson scored his first NHL goal in his 10th game in the Avalanche's 3-2 win against Calgary. The former Sarnia Sting defenceman out of the OHL also played a career-high 15 minutes and 33 seconds and is just another impressive rookie, along with Ryan O'Reilly and Matt Duchene, who have the Avalanche on top of their division.
