Tough call here between Tyler Seguin, who had four goals and an assist in the Stars' 7-3 win over the Calgary Flames, and Jamie Benn, who had a goal and five assists. But we’ll defer to Seguin: “He was making some incredible passes out there. Some of the plays I was just fortunate enough to finish them off." Congrats to Benn on his first star and impending call from the Canadian Olympic team.
The Bruins forward win their game in overtime with a great individual effort. Lucic blocked a Cam Atkinson shot from the point, took off down the ice to recover the puck and beat Sergei Bobrovsky for the 3-2 victory.
