FIRST STAR: Daniel Sedin, LW, Vancouver

One-half of the Swedish twins was on his game in overtime as he slammed in the game-winner on the power play to give the Canucks a 3-2 come-from-behind win in Edmonton. He also chipped in two power-play assists in regulation time.

SECOND STAR: Benoit Pouliot, LW, Montreal

He scored two goals in a losing cause, a 4-3 overtime loss for the Canadiens at home against the St. Louis Blues. The 23-year-old forward now has eight goals in 13 games for Montreal.

THIRD STAR: Martin Brodeur, G, New Jersey

The Devils' all-world goalie notched his league-leading seventh shutout of the season in his team's 2-0 win against the Florida Panthers to stop a three-game slide. His NHL-leading 30th victory came in his 27th straight start. Brodeur continues to establish records for regular-season games played (1,045), victories (587), shutouts (108) and minutes played (61,697).
