No. 1 Star: Jarome Iginla, Los Angeles Kings

The legendary winger had a goal (well, Mark Giordano did, technically), an assist and a fight for a “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” in the Kings’ 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames.

No. 2 Star: Artemi Panarin, Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks winger had a goal and an assist in their 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

No. 3 Star: Vladimir Tarasenko, St. Louis Blues

His second-period goal, No. 36 on the season, ended up being the game-winner in the Blues’ 3-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes. It was a goal for a very special fan.

Honorable Mention: Marcus Johansson and Evgeny Kuznetsov had a goal and an assist in the Washington Capitals’ 5-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche. … Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and an assist.

Did You Know? Referee Ian Walsh missed the third period of the Caps/Avs game after being hit with a puck on the ankle.

Dishonorable Mention: Marc-Andre Fleury gave up five goals on 36 shots. … Matthew Tkachuk had fun. Andy Andreoff of the Kings, meanwhile, amassed 34 penalty minutes. … The Avs were 1-for-3 on the penalty kill.
