NEW YORK - Anaheim Ducks centre Ryan Getzlaf, Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Johan Holmqvist and Philadelphia Flyers left-winger Scott Hartnell are the NHL's three stars of the week.

Getzlaf led all scorers with eight points (two goals, six assists) last week and had a plus-3 rating as the Ducks won three of four games. Getzlaf will play for the Western Conference in the 2008 all-star game Sunday in Atlanta.

Holmqvist was named second star after posting consecutive shutouts in his two starts last week. He helped Tampa Bay to a 3-0 road win over Pittsburgh last Friday and a 2-0 victory in Ottawa a day later.

Hartnell took the third star for the second straight week. He posted six points (5-1) to help the Flyers to three straight victories.
