Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer has received some accolades for his great three game stretch that included wins over the Stars, Predators and Canucks as he was named the NHL's Third Star of the Week on Monday.

Matt Duchene and Mats Zuccarello took home the first and second stars, respectively.

From the official release...


Reimer went 3-0-0 with a 1.62 goals-against average and .952 save percentage to backstop the Maple Leafs (5-9-4, 14 points) to three wins in four games. He made 36 saves in a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars Nov. 10. Reimer then denied 21 shots – as well as all five attempts he faced in the shootout – in a 2-1 triumph over the Nashville Predators Nov. 12. He capped the week with 43 saves in a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks Nov. 14. In doing so, Reimer improved to 14-2-2 in 18 career regular-season games when making 40 or more stops. The 27-year-old Morweena, Man., native owns a 5-2-3 record in 11 appearances this season (2.30 GAA, .925 SV%), including a 3-0-2 clip in his past five starts.
