Free Press stars
★ Blake Wheeler, Jets: A goal and two assists and Wheeler now has 62 points on the season and is just two shy of his career high of 64.
★★ Martin Havlat, Sharks: Still a blazer and capable of finding the open man when no else sees the play. Havlat had a pair of assists to pace the Sharks offence.
★★★ Andrew Ladd, Jets: Another goal and Ladd now has 22 on the season as he continues to prove he’s a capable secondline player with both offence and grit to his game.
