Buffalo’s Tyler Ennis, Minnesota’s Ryan Suter and New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Dec. 14, the league announced on Monday.
Ennis shared second in the NHL with five points (1-4—5) in three outings, helping the Sabres (12-16-2, 26 points) post their third three-game winning streak of the season.
Suter led all defensemen and tied for second in the League with five points (0-5—5) in three starts as the Wild (16-11-1, 33 points) gained four of a possible six standings points.
Lundqvist went 3-0-0 with a 1.30 goals-against average, .951 save percentage and one shutout to propel the Rangers (14-10-4, 32 points) into the second Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.
How about them Sabres? Ennis wins first star, Zemgus Girgensons is running away with the All-Star voting lead and the team is 9-3-0 in its last 12. Not to get too far ahead of ourselves here, but Buffalo is only six points back of the Rangers for the final wild card spot in the East.
I’m not saying… I’m just saying.
