Joffrey Lupul

Toronto's Joffrey Lupul led the NHL with nine points in four games and was also tied for first with five goals, including three game-winners and three power-play tallies. Since coming back from injury Lupul has had 13 points in 6 games.   

Antti Niemi

San Jose's Antti Niemi had an NHL-best four wins and two shutouts to go along with a 1.22 goals-against average and .952 save percentage in four appearances. With the Sharks still battling for the final few playoffs spots, Neimi’s performance couldn’t have come at a better time.  

Taylor Hall

Edmonton's Taylor Hall was tied for first in the NHL with five goals and ranked second with eight points in four games. Hall also broke Wayne Gretzky's franchise record for the fastest hat trick to start a game when he scored three times in the first 7:53 of a 4-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Offensive Line 1 – Taylor Hall (Edmonton Oilers) – Mikko Koivu (Minnesota Wild) – Joffrey Lupul (Toronto Maple Leafs)
