Two key pieces to the Calgary Flames' seven-game winning streak have been recognized for their recent outstanding play, as Johnny Gaudreau and goaltender Mike Smith were named the NHL's first and second stars of the week, respectively.

Gaudreau notched two goals and six assists in four games, pushing his season total to 54 points, which is tied for second in the league.

Smith, meanwhile, won all three of his starts, posting a .963 save percentage in the process.

The third star went to Pittsburgh Penguins winger Phil Kessel after he registered five points in two games, including the game-winning goal in each contest. The 30-year-old also recorded his 700th point in Sunday's win over the New York Rangers.
