Lightning forward Steven Stamkos was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week after scoring in each of his team's four games.
Here's more on the weekly award winners from the league press release:
Philadelphia Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek, Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos and Ottawa Senators goaltender Ben Bishop have been named the NHL’s ‘Three Stars’ for the week ending Feb. 24.
FIRST STAR – JAKUB VORACEK, RW, PHILADELPHIA FLYERS
Voracek led all skaters in points (4-7—11) and assists as the Flyers
won three of four games. He opened the week with the first four-point game
of his career (0-4—4) in a 7-0 win over the New York Islanders Feb. 18 and
recorded his first career hat trick, including the game-winner with 1:31
remaining in regulation, in a 6-5 victory at Pittsburgh Feb. 20. Voracek
scored his seventh goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to the Florida Panthers
Feb. 21 and capped the week with three assists in a 5-3 triumph over the
Winnipeg Jets Feb. 23.
SECOND STAR – STEVEN STAMKOS, C, TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING
Stamkos scored once in each of his four outings and totaled 4-4—8. He
netted one goal in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs Feb. 19 and
posted 1-1—2 against both the Boston Bruins Feb. 21 and Carolina Hurricanes
Feb. 23. The Markham, Ont., native then recorded one goal and two assists
in a 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins Feb. 24. Stamkos has scored goals
in five straight games and has 6-6—12 during a six-game point streak. In 18
contests this season, he leads the League in both goals (13) and points
(29). The 23-year-old Stamkos also has scored the most goals in the NHL
since the start of the 2009-10 season (169), 41 more than the next-closest
player (Alex Ovechkin, 128).
THIRD STAR – BEN BISHOP, G, OTTAWA SENATORS
Bishop went 3-0-0 with a 2.03 goals-against average and .931 save
percentage as the Senators won all four of their games.
