Frolov earned the first star after scoring six goals and adding two assists in three games. He had two goals in each game he played this week - wins over San Jose and Phoenix and a loss to Philadelphia.

The 24-year-old leads the Kings in scoring with 21 points (12

goals, nine assists) in 22 games.

Brind'Amour earned the second star after getting four goals and four assists in four games. The 36-year-old has an eight-game point streak and ranks third in league scoring with 31 points heading into Monday's play.

He credits his teammates for that success. Brind'Amour has spent much of the year playing on a line with Erik Cole and Ray Whitney.

"I'm playing with good players," Brind'Amour said Monday from Raleigh, N.C. "I've never been in a situation where I've had two all-star wingers. . . .

"I've been put in a situation where it's a lot easier to succeed and it's very enjoyable."

The third star of the week was Thomas. He backstopped the Bruins to three victories while posting a 1.60 goals-against average and .944 save percentage.
