Kovalchuk named NHL\'s Second Star


 
Ilya Kovalchuk has been named the NHL's Second Star for the week ending Feb. 5.

Edmonton's Sam Gagner, who led the League with 12 points, took First Star honors. Toronto goaltender James Reimer was the Third Star.

Kovalchuk notched 10 points (three goals, seven assists), leading the Devils to four consecutive victories and sixth place in the Eastern Conference. He notched one goal in a 4-3 shootout victory over the New York Rangers Jan. 31, recorded three assists in a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Feb. 2, tallied one goal and two assists in a 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 4 and finished the week with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Feb. 5. The 10-year NHL veteran ranks second on the Devils in scoring with 50 points (22 goals, 28 assists) in 47 games and is nine goals shy of the 400-goal career milestone.

Gagner's week was highlighted by an historic two-game scoring run that included points on 11 consecutive Edmonton goals -- as the Oilers recorded three consecutive victories. Gagner scored eight points (four goals, four assists) in an 8-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 2 -- the highest single-game point total by an NHL player in more than 23 years. The last player to record as many as eight points in a game was Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux, who tallied five goals and three assists against the Devils on Dec. 31, 1988.

Reimer posted shutouts in consecutive games, lifting the Maple Leafs into the eighth playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
