Earlier today, the NHL named the three stars of the week, and it was pretty obvious who would top the list.

 

First star: John Tavares, New York Islanders

Tavares racked up the stats this week. He had a five point game against the Dallas Stars on January 6th. He scored a hat trick and had two assists in the game.

Tavares managed to scored four goals, and added six assists for a total of ten points in just five games.

 

Second star: Jonas Hiller, Anaheim Ducks

A notable game for Jonas Hiller was January 7th, where he stood on his head the entire game in a 5-2 win over the Boston Bruins. In addition to that, he also recorded a shutout in a 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Hiller was 3-0-0 this week with a 1.67 goals-against average and a .947% save percentage.

 

Third star: Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

Henrik Lundqvist had a pretty decent week with a record of 3-0-1. He managed to keep his goals against average just below 2.00 with 1.97 goals against, as well as a .943 save percentage.
