Calgary Flames right wing Jarome Iginla, Andrej Sekera, Buffalo Sabres defenseman and Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens goaltender, have been selected the NHL’s ‘Three Star’ for the week ending March 6.

FIRST STAR – Iginla topped all NHL scorers last week with eight points (five goals, three assists) as the Flames posted three wins in four games and climbed to fifth place in the Western Conference.

Iginla concluded the week with a milestone goal in Calgary’s 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators on March 6. His second-period goal, coming on a penalty shot, made him just the 10th player in NHL history to score 30 goals in 10 or more consecutive seasons. The captain of the Flames leads the team in scoring with 66 points (30 goals, 36 assists) in 68 games and is just 14 points shy of another NHL milestone, 1,000 career points. Currently, he has 471 goals, 515 assists for 986 total points.

SECOND STAR - Sekera provided plenty of offense from the blueline with eight points (one goal, seven assists) leading the Sabres to earn seven of eight possible points and claim the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Sekera extended his streak of multiple-point games to five, becoming the second defenseman in Sabres history to do so and the first since John Van Boxmeer in 1981.

THIRD STAR – Price posted a 3-0-0 record, 1.00 goals-against average, .974 save percentage and one shutout as the Canadiens rose to sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Price stopped 113 of 116 shots last week.

Price improved his record on the season to 31-21-6 with a 2.34 goals against average and a .923 save percentage in 58 appearances.

Calgary Flames star Jarome Iginla reached an NHL milestone in the most unlikely way to score a goal.

Inginla was awarded the penalty shot when he was pulled down from behind by Sergei Kostitsyn on a breakaway rush on goaltender Pekka Rinne.

Iginla scored on a penalty shot early in the second period, sliding the puck through Rinne’s legs to score the tie it at 2. He became the 10th NHL player to reach 30 goals in 10 straight seasons, in leading the Flames over the Nashville Predators 3-2 Sunday night.

Jaromir Jagr and Mike Gartner share the record with 15 consecutive 30-goal seasons.

Iginla, who is 33 years old, has 471 NHL goals, two behind Denis Savard and Alex Mogilny for 49th place on the all-time scoring list.
