NEW YORK – Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson, Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber and New Jersey Devils left wing Mike Cammalleri have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Dec. 6.
Gibson posted a 3-1-0 record with a 0.76 goals-against average, .968 save percentage and two shutouts to lift the Ducks (11-12-5, 27 points) into fourth place in the Pacific Division. He began the week by stopping all 25 shots he faced in a 4-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Nov. 30. Gibson followed that performance with 20 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning Dec. 2 before recording 23 saves for his second shutout of the week (and the fourth of his career) in a 1-0 triumph over the San Jose Sharks Dec. 4. He then closed the week with 23 stops en route to 2-1 win over his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Dec. 6. The 22-year-old Pittsburgh native owns a 20-10-1 record in 33 career NHL appearances (2.24 GAA, .923 SV%, 4 SO), including a 4-2-1 clip and League-leading 1.47 goals-against average in seven outings this season.
