New York, NY (Sports Network) - Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard and forward Henrik Zetterberg were two of the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the final week of the regular season.

The duo helped the Red Wings extend their playoff streak to 22 seasons.

Howard earned the First Star after posting a 0.75 goals-against average, a .969 save percentage and two shutouts while Detroit closed out the shortened campaign on a four-game winning streak and earned the Western Conference's seventh seed.

Zetterberg led all skaters with eight assists and 10 points in the four contests to pick up the Second Star.

Edmonton rookie right wing Nail Yakupov claimed the Third Star thanks to scoring an NHL-best six goals, including his first career hat trick in the season finale against Vancouver.
