Ottawa Senators goalie Robin Lehner named NHL first star of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Senators goaltender Robin Lehner was named NHL first star of the week Monday after guiding Ottawa to three straight victories last week.

Lehner had a 3-0-0 record over the stretch with a 1.33 goals-against average and .958 save percentage. The 22-year-old Swede stopped 91 of 95 shots.

Anaheim Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen was named second star and Chicago Blackhawks left-winger Patrick Sharp took the third star.

Andersen had virtually identical numbers to Lehner — posting a 3-0-0 mark with a 1.33 GAA. He stopped 92 of 96 shots for a .958 save percentage.

Sharp led the NHL with six assists and seven points in three games to help the Blackhawks extend their point streak to seven games.

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.
