Los Angeles Kings goaltender Ben Scrivens, Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin and Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding were named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week.
Scrivens went 3-0-1 with a 0.66 goals-against average, .977 save percentage and two shutouts. He relieved injured starter Jonathan Quick for the final 1:20 of overtime, serving as the goaltender of record in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres Tuesday. Scrivens then started the next three games, posting 23 saves in a 3-2 comeback victory over the New York Islanders Thursday and recording consecutive shutouts against the New Jersey Devils Friday (26 saves) and New York Rangers Sunday (37 saves).
Seguin led all players with five goals and tied for first with seven points in leading the Stars to three straight victories. He scored the insurance marker in a 3-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers Wednesday. Seguin then scored a career-high four goals, including the game-winner, and five points in a 7-3 triumph over the Calgary Flames Thursday, becoming the first Stars player to register four goals in a game since Jussi Jokinen on Nov. 16, 2007. Seguin capped the week with an assist in a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Sunday.
Harding had a 3-0-0 record with a 1.38 goals-against average and .939 save percentage. He relieved injured starter Niklas Backstrom in a 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday, stopping 19 shots, plus another two in the shootout, in 54:29 of playing time. Harding then recorded 22 saves in a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers Friday and 21 stops in a 2-1 triumph over the Winnipeg Jets Sunday to extend his home-ice winning streak to 10 games.
