NEW YORK, N.Y. - Chicago Blackhawks right-winger Patrick Kane was named NHL first star of the week Monday after leading all players with five goals last week.

Dallas Stars left-wing Jamie Benn earned the second star and New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur picked up the third star.

Kane recorded five goals and an assist as the Blackhawks picks up three wins.

Benn had six points (4-2) in three games last week, including a pair of game-winning goals.

Brodeur posted a 3-0-0 record over the stretch. He had a 1.33 goals-against average and .942 save percentage.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
