newjerseydevils.com – Devils right wing Jamie Langenbrunner has been named the NHL's 'First Star' for both the month of January and the week ending Feb. 1.

Langenbrunner led the League last week with six goals, including three game winners. He added one assist as New Jersey recorded three victories, giving them a record of 32-15-3, 67 points and first place in the Atlantic Division.

The Devils' captain also tied for third among scorers with 17 points (9g-8a) in 14 games as the Devils went 11-3-0 in January.

"He's playing with confidence, and scoring on his chances, which is great to see," said Langenbrunner's linemate Travis Zajac. "We're going to keep looking for him out there, because he's got the hot stick right now."

He began the week by recording two goals in a 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators, Jan. 27. On Jan. 29, he notched two goals including the overtime winner and one assist in a 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins. He closed the week by recording two goals including the overtime winner as the Devils defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3, Jan. 30. Appearing in 49 games this season, Langenbrunner sits fourth on the Devils with 41 points (14g-27a-41pts) and is third with a plus-19 rating.

No Devil had previously scored OT goals on consecutive nights – or in consecutive team games.

Langenbrunner became the third player in team history to record three consecutive multi-goal games. He joined Patrik Elias (Feb. 21-25, 2004) and Alexander Mogilny (March 27-31, 2001), each of whom tallied six times.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Washington's Mike Green were named the second and third stars, respectively.
