FIRST STAR - ANDREW HAMMOND, G, OTTAWA SENATORS

Hammond helped the Senators continue their surge for a playoff berth by posting a 3-0-1 record, 1.63 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage as Ottawa (40-26-13, 93 points) finished the week two points behind both Wild Card spots in the Eastern Conference. Hammond stopped 16 shots in a 2-1 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings March 31, made 28 saves in a 2-1 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning April 2 and 29 stops in a 4-3 overtime win over the Washington Capitals April 4. He closed the week by posting 36 saves through overtime and five more in the shootout in a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs April 5. The NHL's First Star for March has posted a 17-1-2 record with a 1.86 goals-against average, .939 save percentage and two shutouts since his season debut Feb. 16.
