RICK NAMED NHL 2ND STAR FOR FEBRUARY
Zetterberg named first star, Brodeur No. 3

Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro was named star No. 2 in the NHL for the month of February.

When told the news, Islanders head coach Ted Nolan had a big smile and said, "That's well-deserved. Ricky was huge for us all month."

Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg was named the First Star, while Devils netminder Martin Brodeur was voted Third Star.


Here is the NHL press release:
