Buffalo Sabres netminder Ryan Miller was named the NHL's third star of the week.


In a season that has seen several goaltenders get off to blazing starts, no one has done more with less than Miller, who won all three of his starts last week while allowing only four goals -- even though his team scored only six non-empty netters.

He currently leads the League in wins (12), goals-against average (1.77) and save percentage (.939)

Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg and Atlanta's Ilya Kovulchuk claimed the first and second stars of the week.

Zetterberg capped his best week of the season with the best night of his career Saturday -- he had his fourth career hat trick and added two assists for a five-point night in the Wings' 7-4 win against Anaheim. For the week, he had 3 goals and 6 assists, was plus-5 and scored the winning goal in back-to-back games.

Kovalchuk, meanwhile, still hasn't completely healed from a broken foot, but was good enough to skate -- and he picked up where he had left off by terrorizing goaltenders, getting three goals and five assists as Atlanta won three times in a four-day span.
