Rangers forward Marian Gaborik's big month of November didn't go unnoticed by the NHL on Tuesday, as the NHL's goal-scoring leader and co-leader in points was named by the league as its No. 3 Star for November.

Marian Gaborik
Gaborik capped off his month of November with two goals against Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. He now has a league-high 21 goals -- three more than the two players tied for second-place on the list. Gaborik also is tied with San Jose's Joe Thornton in the race for the Art Ross Trophy. Both Thornton and Gaborik have 37 points.

Thornton was named the NHL's No. 2 Star for November. Jarome Iginla of Calgary, who had 20 points in November, was the No. 1 Star.

At his current pace, Gaborik could become the first player in Rangers history to score 60 goals in a season. He also ahead of where Jaromir Jagr was in his record-setting 2005-06 season. Jagr scored 54 goals that year and also had 21 through the first 27 Rangers games, but he did not get his 22nd goal until several more games had passed. Gaborik can exceed Jagr's pace with his next goal.

In the month of November alone, Gaborik tallied 19 points (11 goals, eight assists) in 13 games, becoming this season's first player to reach the 20-goal mark. Gaborik notched points in 11 games, beginning with the game-winning goal in a 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins Nov. 1. He recorded a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers Nov. 6, scored two goals a 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals Nov. 17 and recorded a season-high four points (two goals, two assists) in a 7-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Nov. 23.

Dating back to the end of the 2008-09 season, when he was playing for the Minnesota Wild, Gaborik has tallied 34 goals in his past 42 NHL regular-season games.
