Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp, Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller and Pittsburgh Penguins winger James Neal were named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week, the league announced Monday.
Sharp led the NHL with six goals in three games. He scored twice in a win over the New Jersey Devils, three in a 7-2 blowout over the Colorado Avalanche and one in a shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues.
Miller went 2-0-1 with a 1.55 goals-against average and .961 save percentage. He had 36 saves in a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, 39 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs and a career-high 49 saves in a shootout win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday.
Neal led all skaters with eight points. He did not score in a 5-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators but had three points against the Carolina Hurricanes and five more in a 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. He became the first Penguins player with at least five points in a game in which he factored in every goal since Jan. 19, 2010, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
