NEW YORK, N.Y. - Devan Dubnyk's career renaissance in Minnesota continues.

The Wild goaltender was named the NHL's first star of the week Monday after posting back-to-back shutouts last week.

Dubnyk stopped all 42 shots he faced over two starts to help extend Minnesota's season-high winning streak to five games. He recorded 24 saves in a 3-0 triumph over Chicago on Tuesday, and made 18 more stops in a 1-0 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

The 28-year-old Regina native is 16-6-2 in 28 total appearances this season, including a 7-1-0 mark with a 1.31 goals-against average, .948 save percentage and four shutouts in nine games since joining the Wild on Jan. 14.

Anaheim winger Corey Perry was named the second star of the week, scoring four goals and adding two assists over four games.

Montreal centre David Desharnais had a goal, five assists and a plus-6 rating over three games last week, earning him third-star honours.
