Patrick Sharp, Ryan Miller and James Neal named NHL's three stars of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Chicago Blackhawks left-winger Patrick Sharp was named NHL first star of the week Monday after leading all players with six goals last week.

Sharp also had an assist over the stretch as he helped the Blackhawks take five of a possible six points to maintain first place in the Central Division.

Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller was the second star and Pittsburgh Penguins left-winger James Neal was the third star.

Miller was 2-0-1 last week with a 1.55 goals-against average and .961 save percentage. Neal led the league with eight points (4-4) as the Penguins won two of three games.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
