NHL Three Stars: Iginla, Bruins streaking; Miller, Blues keep on rolling

No. 1 Star: Alexandre Burrows, Vancouver Canucks

It came in a losing effort as the Canucks dropped a 4-3 decision to the Tampa Bay Lightning, but Burrows was in on all three Canuck goals, scoring two and assisting on the third. After a terrible season, he's on fire, with 9 points in his last 5 games.

No. 2 Star: Jarome Iginla, Boston Bruins

Like Burrows, Iginla is on fire right now. He scored twice in the Bruins' 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild, giving Boston their ninth consecutive win.

No. 3 Star: David Backes, St. Louis Blues

Backes scored twice in the Blues 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets, pushing Ryan Miller to 7-0-1 as a member of the Blues. St. Louis has won three straight and eight of nine.

Honorable mention: Jason Pominville shattered his stick taking this shot and still scored:

Mike Smith made 36 saves as the Phoenix Coyotes held off a comeback from the Los Angeles Kings to win 4-3 and move into a playoff spot... This save by Tuukka Rask was pretty incredible:

Did You Know? Shane Doan's game was his 1,300th in the NHL.

Dishonorable mention: Ryan Stanton had two goals go in off of his body versus the Lightning... and speaking of the Lightning, when you do a Stanley Cup tribute, you should probably know what date they're commemorating.
