A couple of white-hot goal scorers and one of the players paid to stop them make up the NHL’s Three Stars for this past week.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin, who leads the League’s scoring race, is the First Star, while Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell is Second Star and New York Islanders goaltender Evgeni Nabokov earns Third Star honors.
Malkin, who entered Monday’s play with 58 points—three more than the Flyers’ Claude Giroux—and is tied with teammate James Neal for third with 26 goals, has 9 goals during a six-game scoring streak. Seven of them have come in the third period or overtime.
