NEW YORK - Washington Capitals left-winger Alex Ovechkin, St. Louis Blues goaltender Chris Mason and Minnesota Wild left-winger Guillaume Latendresse are the NHL's three stars of the week.

Ovechkin led all scorers with 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in helping the Capitals take over first in the Eastern Conference with three wins in four games.

His biggest night was Friday, when he scored and added a career-high four assists in a 6-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Mason stopped 66 of 68 shots while posting a 3-0-0 record with one shutout.

Latendresse finished behind Ovechkin in scoring with eight points (4-4) as Minnesota won two of its four games.

He had a career-high four points (1-3) in a 4-3 win over Pittsburgh last Monday and recorded his first NHL hat trick in a 6-4 loss to Phoenix on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
