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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
