Senators centre Kyle Turris gets a little love from the NHL for his play over the past week as he was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week for the week ending March 22nd.

From the league...

SECOND STAR – KYLE TURRIS, C, OTTAWA SENATORS

Turris led all players with four goals and shared first in the NHL with six points to power the Senators (36-24-11, 83 points) to three consecutive wins, moving the team within one point of the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. He opened the week with the primary assist on Mark Stone’s overtime goal in a 2-1 triumph over the Carolina Hurricanes March 17. Turris followed that performance with 2-1—3, his second multi-goal and three-point games of the season, in a 6-4 win over the Boston Bruins March 19. He then recorded his second straight multi-goal game (2-0—2), including the winning tally, in a 5-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs March 21 – the first time he has put together consecutive multi-goal performances. The 25-year-old New Westminster, B.C., native has registered 21-31—52 in 71 contests this season, five goals and six points shy of his career highs established in 82 games in 2013-14.

Here's a look at his 2 goals against the Toronto Maple Leafs from last Saturday night...
