No. 1 Star: Viktor Fasth, Anaheim Ducks

The red-hot rookie won his fourth straight start and earned his first shutout with a 3-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche. Sheldon Souray, Saku Koivu and Francois Beauchemin (playing in his 500th NHL game) scored for the Ducks, while Fasth made a career-high 31 saves. The 30-year old netminder now has a 0.98 goals against average and .962 save percentage.

No. 2 Star: Jaromir Jagr, Dallas Stars

The future Hall of Famer gave the Stars the extra point with his goal in overtime for the 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

No. 3 Star: Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins

Rask and the Bruins continued their strong start and moved atop the Eastern Conference standings with a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Rask made 20 saves for his sixth win of the season. Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored 1:51 apart early in the third period to grab the lead for good.

Honorable mention: P.K. Subban's first of the season was the only goal for the Habs ... Teemu Selanne recorded his 750th career assist. He's now four points behind Adam Oates for 16th all-time ... Matt Duchene was 16-for-22 in the faceoff circle for the Avs ... Jamie Benn scored his third goal in two games for the Star ... The review was inconclusive to determine whether or not the puck crossed the line, so instead of a goal, this shot turned into a Semyon Varlamov save of the year candidate:

Did you know? Jagr's goal was his 668th career tally, tying him for 10th all-time with Luc Robitaille.

Dishonorable mention: The Oilers' Anton Lander left the game with a foot injury in the first period and did not return ... Edmonton has now lost four in a row ... Montreal's five-game winning streak at Molson Centre came to an end ... Alex Galchenyuk won just one draw out of eight chances ... Poor, poor Carey Price:
