Hockey Night's 3 Stars
CBCSports.ca senior hockey writer Tim Wharnsby names the top performers from Wednesday night in the NHL.
FIRST STAR: Marc-Andre Fleury, G, Pittsburgh
Fleury’s inconsistent play has been part of the reason for the Penguins' recent struggles. But he was on his game in Calgary, making 37 saves in a 3-1 win in the first of three games for the Penguins in Western Canada this week.
SECOND STAR: Antti Miettinen, RW, Minnesota
His two-goal, one-assist performance in the Wild’s 5-2 win at home against Vancouver helped increase Minnesota’s win streak to four games. After a 5-10-0 start, the Wild have gone 19-10-3 and are now just two points out of a playoff position.
THIRD STAR: James Wisniewski, D, Anaheim
Wisniewski registered two assists in Anaheim's 4-3 victory at home against Boston — the Ducks' fifth win in a row. Unfortunately for Anaheim, forward Teemu Selanne broke his jaw when he was hit by a deflected puck in the third period and will require surgery on Thursday.
