Hockey Night's 3 Stars
CBCSports.ca senior reporter Tim Wharnsby names the top performers in the NHL from Sunday night.
FIRST STAR: Ryan Getzlaf, C, Anaheim
The Ducks forward showed the Canadian Olympic team brass that his sprained left ankle is not bothering him. He scored twice and added two assists in Anaheim’s 7-3 win in Edmonton.
SECOND STAR: Erik Christensen, C, N.Y. Rangers
He scored twice and assisted on another goal in the Rangers' 5-2 win at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Christensen was plucked off the waiver wire in December and played his finest game for the Rangers.
THIRD STAR: Alex Kovalev, RW, Ottawa
The Senators sniper helped Ottawa overcome a two-goal deficit after two periods for a 4-3 come-from-behind win on Long Island against the Islanders. It was the Senators' 14th win in 16 games to move them back atop the Northeast Division standings.
