No. 1 Star: Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins

The Bruins pivot was a factor in three of Boston’s four goals during their 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils Monday night, their fifth straight victory. Bergeron scored his third of the season and assisted on two others to give him six points in his last four games.

No. 2 Star: Justin Faulk, Carolina Hurricanes

Like Bergeron, Faulk played a role in three of four goals for the Hurricanes in their 4-1 defeat of the Calgary Flames. His second period power play goal gave Carolina a 2-1 lead and he added two helpers as the Canes won for the sixth time in six games.

No. 3 Star: Jeff Skinner, Carolina Hurricanes

Skinner recorded a two-point night in the Carolina win, including his 100th career NHL goal. He now has four points in his last three games.

Honorable Mention: Jaromir Jagr scored his 708th career goal, tying Mike Gartner for sixth on the all-time scoring list:

Jagr also played in his 1,488th NHL game, moving past Wayne Gretzky for 17th all-time ... Mike Cammalleri had a pair of assists in his return to the New Jersey lineup … Cam Ward made 22 stops for his fifth straight win.

Did You Know? You’ll likely be seeing Seth Griffith’s goal a lot over the next 24 hours.

Dishonorable Mention: Did you see that defense on Griffith's goal?
