NEW YORK - Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne was named NHL first star of the week Monday.
Chicago Blackhawks centre Jonathan Toews was the second star and Ottawa Senators centre Jason Spezza was the third star.
Rinne won all three of his starts last week. He had two shutouts and recorded a .976 save percentage.
Toews recorded six points (4-2) in three games and had a pair of game-winning goals to help the Blackhawks earn five of six available points.
Spezza had four goals - including a hat trick - last week to help Ottawa win both of its games.
