NEW YORK - Goaltender Cristobal Huet of the Chicago Blackhawks was named the National Hockey League's first star of the week Monday after posting a pair of shutouts last week.

Huet made 27 saves in a 3-0 win over the St. Louis Blues last Wednesday. He stopped 20 shots in a 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

Huet is working on an active shutout streak of 141 minutes 21 seconds. His personal best is 173:30 set with the Montreal Canadiens in February 2006.

The second star went to goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Right-winger Patric Hornqvist of the Nashville Predators was named third star.

Fleury won all three of his starts last week. He posted a 1.26 goals-against average and .957 save percentage over the stretch.

Hornqvist led all scorers last week with seven points (four goals, three assists) to help the Predators win four straight games.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
