By Sports Network
NEW YORK -- Toronto Maple Leafs right winger Phil Kessel, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford and Columbus Blue Jackets left winger Matt Calvert have been named the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending February 27.
Kessel was named First Star for leading the league in scoring last week. The 23-year-old compiled four goals and four assists, including half of the eight points (2G, 2A) in a 5-4 victory over bitter rival Montreal on Thursday.
Taking home the Second Star was Crawford, who won all three of his starts, posting a 1.95 goals-against average and .936 save percentage.
Calvert earned the Third Star after netting an NHL-high five goals, including his first career hat trick in a February 25 win over Phoenix.
