Washington Capitals forward Ovechkin named NHL first star of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Washington Capitals right-winger Alex Ovechkin was named NHL first star of the week Monday after recording six points over three games.

Ovechkin led all players last week in goals (four), points (six), power-play goals (three) and shots on goal (24).

Montreal Canadiens centre Lars Eller was named second star and Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was the third star.

Eller had five points (3-2) in two games while Fleury was 2-0-0 with a 0.50 goals-against average, .979 save percentage and one shutout.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
