The NHL has announced its three stars for the month of February, and they are as follows:

1. Steven Stamkos, Tampa Bay Lightning

2. Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins

3. Ray Emery, Chicago Blackhawks

Stamkos had 10 goals and 10 assists in 14 games during the month and leads the NHL in goals with 14. He’s also tied with second star Crosby for the scoring lead, each with 31 points.

Emery, meanwhile, went 7-0-0 in February with a 1.66 goals-against average and .941 save percentage as the Blackhawks still haven’t lost in regulation.

    goals trump points. understandable but worth noting that crosby had 24 pts in feb and same number of games (14), best in the league in the month – but only 6 of which were goals. crosby was +6 and stamkos was -1. with those two neck in neck, it wouldve been nice to see emery get the #1 star – he was invaluable while crawford was out and will have to be just as good as it looks like crawford got hurt again.

    All 3 had a great month, but no Voracek? I’m pretty sure he was leading the February points race before his scoring streak was stopped on Wednesday. I guess he doesn’t have the name recognition of Crosby and Stamkos.

      Nvm I guess Crosby had more, but still, 21 pts in 15 games is pretty damn impressive.

    Something tells me you’re going to see those two names on these type of things for the next decade.

    Hockey right now is just a wealth of young talent: Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Giroux, Kane, Toews, Karlsson, Weber, Kane, Subban, Paul Martin, Yakupov, Benn, Tavares, Skinner, Quick, Landeskog, and tons of others….

    Really exciting time to be a hockey fan right now.
