Pekka Rinne didn't make the cut in the NHL's 3 Stars of the Week awards which were just announced, with John Tavares of the New York Islanders, Viktor Fasth of the Anaheim Ducks, and Carolina's Jiri Tlusty being chosen instead for the period covering February 11-17.

The league typically picks two skaters and one goalie for its 3 Stars of the Week honors, and instead of picking the guy who has carried the Nashville Predators on his back this season, including a rare set of back-to-back shutouts against San Jose and Phoenix, they went with the rookie Fasth and his win streak.
