NHL Three Stars: 4-point night for St. Louis, other St. Louis pays tribute to Musial (Puck Daddy)

Brian Elliott sporting a no. 6 Stan Musial jersey. The entire team wore Musial's name and number in warmup in a tribute to the St. Louis Cardinals legend. No. 1 Star: Martin St. Louis, Tampa Bay Lightning The diminutive Lightning forward led the way for the Lightning in a 5-1 drubbing over the Philadelphia Flyers. Teddy Purcell added a goal and 2 assists, and Steven Stamkos contributed 1 and 1, but St. Louis was the standout with 4 helpers on the night, pushing him to 11 on the season. Shot of the night goes to Vincent Lecavalier, by the way, for this bottle rocket: Get it? Bottle rocket? Because it was a rocket and it because it popped the water bottle? Man, I am great at this. No. 2 Star: Zach Parise, Minnesota Wild It wasn't enough, as the Wild fell 5-4 to the St. Louis Blues in overtime, but Parise gave his club 2 goals and an assist in the losing effort. David Perron and Alex Pietrangelo had 2 helpers each for St. Louis, and Vladimir Sobotka scored the game-winner.
