A resurgent Tuukka Rask has been named the NHL's first star of the week, after posting three wins along with a .954 save percentage and a 1.30 goals-against average. Rask is now 8-0-1 in his last nine starts, a huge factor in the Bruins' recent success.

Meanwhile, rookie sensation Mathew Barzal earned second star honors after recording six points in four games, including his first career hat trick. Barzal now paces all NHL freshman with 35 points in 36 games.

Finally, Florida Panthers goaltender James Reimer captured the third star of the week. He earned three wins, including one shutout, as well as a sparkling .964 save percentage.
