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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
