Malkin Named NHL\'s \"Third Star\"
Penguins center Evgeni Malkin was named the NHL's Third Star of the week, the league announced on

Malkin has a five-game point streak after exploding for five goals and three assists in three games last week. He had Pittsburgh's lone tally in a 4-1 loss to Detroit and struck for a goal and an assist in a 6-4 defeat against Ottawa. With the Penguins reeling and in need of a victory to turn the momentum back in their favor, Malkin stood front and center and responded with his first hat trick of the season and two assists in an 8-3 rout of the Sabres.

Ottawa Senators forward Jason Spezza is the League's First Star and Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne is the Second Star.
