FIRST STAR -- DANY HEATLEY, LW, OTTAWA SENATORS

Heatley led all NHL scorers in January, tallying 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) in 13 games, and posted a League-best +14 rating as the Senators went 9-3-1 and improved to second place in the Northeast Division. Heatley had multiple points in seven contests, highlighted by a four-point performance (three goals, one assist) in a 6-3 victory over Buffalo Jan. 3 and consecutive one-goal, two-assist efforts in wins over the New York Rangers (6-4, Jan. 11) and Montreal Canadiens (8-3, Jan. 13). Heatley finished the month with two points (one goal, one assist), including his sixth game-winning goal of the season, in a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals Jan. 30. The 26-year-old leads the Senators in points (67), goals (31), assists (36), shots (200), even-strength goals (21) and power-play goals (10).

SECOND STAR -- SIDNEY CROSBY, C, PITTSBURGH PENGUINS

Crosby ranked second among NHL scorers with 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists), tallied points in 11 of 12 games and finished the month with an active seven-game point streak (four goals, 10 assists). He recorded six multiple-point games, beginning with a three-point performance (two goals, one assist) in a 3-0 victory against Carolina Jan. 2. He tallied a pair of goals, including his second of two game-winners for the month, in a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders Jan. 16 and notched four points (one goal, three assists) in a 7-2 victory at Phoenix Jan. 27. Crosby, 19, leads all NHL scorers with 79 points (25 goals, 54 assists) in 46 games, holding a 10-point lead over second-place Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals (32-37--69) in his bid to become the youngest scoring champion in League history.

THIRD STAR -- ROBERTO LUONGO, G, VANCOUVER CANUCKS

Luongo posted a 8-1-2 record with a 1.86 goals-against average, .945 save percentage and one shutout in 11 games as the Canucks (28-19-4, 60 points) moved into a tie with Calgary atop the Northwest Division. Luongo allowed two goals or fewer in eight games, including a 30-save shutout in his hometown, a 4-0 victory at Montreal Jan. 16. He made 30 or more saves in seven consecutive appearances from Jan. 7-28, including a 40-save effort in a 3-2 overtime loss to Los Angeles Jan. 26. Playing in his first season with the Canucks, Luongo has posted a 28-16-3 record with a 2.35 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and three shutouts in 48 games. He is on pace to break the Canucks' single-season record for victories (38), set by Kirk McLean in 1991-92.
