In his bid to replace Henrik Lundqvist, Cam Talbot tries to be as sexy as possible.

No. 1 Star: Olli Jokinen, Winnipeg Jets

Jokinen keyed a big third for the Jets, scoring two of Winnipeg's three goals in the final frame to beat the New York Rangers, 5-2. In addition to the goals, Jokinen also added this slick assist on Devin Setoguchi's second period goal:

No. 2 Star: Josh Harding, Minnesota Wild

Harding made 21 saves for the shutout as the Wild ended their four-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

No. 3 Star: Tyler Toffoli, Los Angeles Kings

The Blues came on late, but they couldn't claw back from a three-goal deficit to tie the game. Toffoli scored his 5th and 6th goals of the season in the Kings' 3-2 win

Honorable mention: David Desharnais had two assists and Alex Galchenyuk's third period goal was the difference as the Montreal Canadiens edged the New Jersey Devils 3-2.

Did You Know? Via Mike Russo, Mike Rupp's teams are 10-1-1 when he fights a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. So now he always has to.

Dishonorable mention: Poor Keaton Ellerby. This is about the worst thing that can happen when you botch an outlet pass. One and a half seconds after it comes off his stick, it's in his net.
