No. 1 Star: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
Kane scored in the first and third period and helped set up Nick Leddy's tally in the second as the Blackhawks got past the Nashville Predators 5-4 in overtime. Marian Hossa assisted on three goals and in overtime it was Viktor Stalberg making Jack Hillen look silly:
No. 2 Star: Ryan Callahan, New York Rangers
Looking for their first win at home the Rangers finished the second period strong with three goals in the final six minutes to snap San Jose's five-game win streak with a 5-2 victory. Callahan scored two of those three goals in the final frame and added an assist on Ryan McDonagh's third of the season to open the scoring. His final goal was a vintage, all-out effort from the captain:
No. 3 Star: Evander Kane, Winnipeg Jets
Kane scored twice, including the game-tying goal with 50 seconds remaining in the third period and the Jets got goals from Andrew Ladd and Kyle Wellwood in the shootout to down the Florida Panthers 4-3.
