Three Stars: Washington Capitals 5, San Jose Sharks 4 (OT)

First Star: Jay Beagle. Two goals. Good boy.

Second Star: John Carlson. Offensively anyway. Goal, assist.

Third Star: Marcus Johansson. Has stepped up his game in a big way this season. Has played his way into being a tradeable asset. Will get paid this offseason, somewhere.

Honorable Mention(s): Troy Brouwer, an assist away from the Gordie Howe hat trick. Joel Ward, OT goal.
