Patrick Kane tweeted this photo of Lebron James, whose visiting Heat saw their win streak end at the hands of the Chicago Bulls. That's right: Kane's mere presence means wins for Chicago. Even in basketball.

No. 1 Star: Tommy Wingels, San Jose Sharks

The Sharks won their second straight over the Anaheim Ducks in a rout, 4-0, led by the three-point night of Wingels. The Sharks' forward had 2 assists and a shorthanded goal to lead his club.

No. 2 Star: Michael Cammalleri, Calgary Flames

Cammalleri led the way for the Flames in a 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche. He had two goals, and narrowly missed out on the hat trick goal in the game's dying seconds.

No. 3 Star: Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins

The Bruins and Montreal Canadiens combined for an instant classic, won by Montreal 6-5 in a shootout. The Bruins had the best player on the ice, however, as Bergeron contributed four points -- a goal and an assist -- in the loss. Plus he won an absurd 23 of 34 faceoffs.

Honourable mention: Brent Burns scored again and Antti Niemi made 22 saves for a shutout in San Jose... The Minnesota Wild won their seventh straight, 4-3 over the Phoenix Coyotes, thanks to the late heroics of Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter. Koivu scored the overtime winner. Suter scored the game-tying goal with less than a minute to go:

Did You Know? Jarome Iginla sort of got traded. You probably didn't hear.

Dishonourable mention: Boston led 4-2 going into the third, and surrendered the game-tying goal with eight seconds remaining:

Corey Perry's cheap shot on Dan Boyle was uncalled for, so Boyle flipping out on him later in the game was definitely called for... Speaking of flipping out, Tuukka Rask was pretty upset after the Boston game.
