Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was named the NHL’s first star of the week. Price won all three of his starts last week, allowing only three goals and posting a 2-0 shutout over the Vancouver Canucks.
Price posted a goals-against average of 1.00 with a .970 save percentage as the Canadiens (11-5-1) widened their lead in the Northeast Division to four points.
The Canadiens goaltender improved to 10-5-1 with a 2.18 GAA with a .923 save percentage and two shutouts in 16 appearances this season.
Penguins’ Sidney Crosby and the Capitals’ Alexander Semin were the second and third stars.
