Flames' Iginla highlights NHL's weekly stars

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Calgary Flames forward Jarome Iginla, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Mark Recchi and New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur were named the NHL's Three Stars for the week ending March 1.

Iginla tallied four goals and six assists in three games, as the Flames went 2-1-0 during the week. Despite losing to Tampa Bay, 8-6, on Sunday, Iginla recorded two goals and three assists, reaching the 400-goal plateau and picking up his 831st point to pass Theo Fleury for most in franchise history. The 31-year-old has 26 goals and 46 assists this season in 62 games for the Northwest Division-leading Flames.

Recchi tallied seven assists on the week, as the Lightning went 1-2-0. The 40- year-old recorded five assists in the team's win over Calgary on Sunday. Playing for the sixth team in his 21-season career, Recchi has 13 goals and 32 assists in 62 games for the Lightning this season.

Brodeur returned from a 50-game absence and led the Devils to three straight wins in four days, including two shutouts. He recorded 27 saves in Sunday's 3-0 blanking of division rival Philadelphia, garnering the 100th shutout and 547th regular season victory of his illustrious career. Brodeur now stands only three whitewashes behind Terry Sawchuck's record of 103 and four regular season wins behind Patrick Roy for most all-time. Including playoffs, the New Jersey netminder already has the most shutouts (122) in NHL history.
