Three Stars:

1st Star – Craig Anders(s)on – Win against the Flyers

3rd Star – Craig Adams –  Assist

Last night there were thirteen former ‘Hawks to take the ice. The drunk goalie lost his league leading 32nd game while the skaters amassed three goals and two assists for five points.

The ‘Hawks got a big win which they needed and may have gotten some help for the two games against Detroit this weekend with one of their big guns doubtful after suffering an injury in last nights action. Find out who later on.

Now for the three stars of last night.

1st Star – Sergei Samsonov – Two Assists in a loss to Washington
2nd Star – Rene Bourque – Goal in a rout of Edmonton
3rd Star – Benny Eager –  Goal
