Eastern Conference’s 3 Stars
Third Star: Tampa Bay Lightning LW Jonathan Drouin. Drouin posted three goals and two assists in three games last week. A number of other players in the Eastern Conference had five points, but Drouin topped them all in the goal department.
Second Star: Columbus Blue Jackets LW Brandon Saad. The Columbus Blue Jackets are on fire right now, having won 12 games in a row. They are now 23-5-4, which is good for first place in the league. Former Chicago Blackhawk Brandon Saad earns the East’s second star this week for his contribution of four goals and one assist, for 5 points.
First Star: Columbus Blue Jackets RW Cam Atkinson. Saad’s teammate gets the East’s first star honors. In four games played, he’s tallied four goals and two assists, for six points. It must have been a fun Christmas for these players and their teammates! Let’s see if they can keep the ball rolling into the new year.
