NHL Three Stars: Tarasenko powers Blues; Miller frustrates Maple Leafs

No. 1 Star: Vladimir Tarasenko, St. Louis Blues

The Calder watch is on? The Blues rookie scored his third of the season, assisted on an Andy McDonald power-play goal and fed Alex Pietrangelo for the game winner as St. Louis sunk the Nashville Predators, 4-3.

No. 2 Star: Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres

Miller was brilliant in stopping 34 shots in the Sabres’ 2-1 victory at the Toronto Maple Leafs, including 13 saves in the third period. Cody Hodgson and Jason Pominville had the goals, while Nazem Kadri scored his second of the season for the Leafs.
