NEW YORK, N.Y. - Forwards Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers and Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning along with Ottawa Senators goalie Ben Bishop were named the NHL’s three stars of the week Monday.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
