NEW YORK - St. Louis Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko, Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne and Dallas Stars winger Alexander Radulov are the NHL's three stars for the week.

Tarasenko led the NHL with seven points (three goals, four assists) in four games last week to help the Blues earn seven points on the week. Tarasenko, who finished the year with 33 goals, and Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin are the only players to score at least 30 goals each of the past five years.

Rinne went 3-0-0 with a 2.01 goals-against average and .935 save percentage to guide the Predators to their second straight Central Division title. Rinne has five consecutive 30-win seasons, tied for the longest active streak with Devan Dubnyk of the Minnesota Wild and Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals.

Radulov had two goals and four assists in three games, helping the Stars clinch their first playoff berth since 2016. Radulov scored a career-high 29 goals this season.
