Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick, Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin and Montreal’s Max Pacioretty were named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Feb. 22, the league announced on Monday.
Quick went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average and .959 save percentage to backstop the Kings (28-18-12, 68 points) to three consecutive victories, including a 2-1 triumph over the rival San Jose Sharks in the 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
Sedin registered four consecutive multi-point games and shared the League lead with eight points as the Canucks (34-22-3, 71 points) won three of four starts.
Pacioretty shared first in the NHL with four goals and a +6 rating to lead the Canadiens (38-16-5, 81 points) to five out of eight possible standings points.
Huge week for Quick, who seemingly responded to head coach Darryl Sutter’s challenge from last month:
Interesting stuff from Sutter about goalies. Said .920 sv% won’t cut it in today’s NHL. Target is .950. Quick is at .917

Quick’s save percentage then proceeded to dip lower than that and, even with last week’s efforts, still sits at a .913 on the year.
