Lecavalier is NHL's First Star ... again



Vinny Lecavalier, for the second consecutive week, was named the NHL's first star for the week ending Sunday . He is the first Tampa Bay player to do the double and the league's first since Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg in February.

Lecavalier led the league with eight points on four goals and four assists in two games, including a career-high five points in Wednesday's victory over the Hurricanes. Lecavalier is riding a team-record seven consecutive multi-point games.

Sharks goalie Evgeni Nabokov was the second star (3-0-1 with a 0.96 goals against average and a .959 save percentage). Predators left wing Martin Erat (three goals, including two winners, and six points in three games) was the third star.
