Pominville, Fleury, Chimera named NHL's three stars of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Minnesota Wild right-wing Jason Pominville is the NHL's first star of the week after putting up four goals and two assists in three games.

Pominville scored in all three of Minnesota's games last week to help the Wild (8-4-3, 19 points) earn four out of a possible six points.

His best performance was in a 4-3 win over Montreal on Friday, where he posted a season-high three points (two goals, one assist), including the game-winning goal.

Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was named second star, posting a 3-0-0 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .940 save percentage as the Penguins (11-4-0, 22 points) won all four of their games to remain in first place in the Metropolitan Division.

He capped the week on Saturday by recording a season-high 37 saves in a 4-2 victory over Columbus, becoming the first netminder in the NHL to reach 10 wins this season.

Washington left-wing Jason Chimera was named third star with two goals and four assists in three games, helping the Capitals (7-7-0, 14 points) pick up four out of a possible six points.

Chimera posted a career-high four points (one goal, three assists) in a 7-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
