Canadiens goalie Carey Price, Stars center Tyler Seguin and Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko have been named the NHL’s three stars for the past week.


Price went 3-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average, .963 save percentage and one shutout to backstop the Canadiens (6-0-0, 12 points) to three wins, leading the team to its best start in its 98-year NHL history.

Seguin tied for first in the NHL with 3-4—7 in three outings to power the Stars (4 1-0, 8 points) to a trio of victories.

Tarasenko notched 3-3—6 and a +6 rating in four games to lift the Blues (5-1-0, 10 points) to four consecutive wins.

Other players that excelled over the last week include David Krejci (3G, 4A in three games), Jason Spezza (4G, 2A), John Tavares (2G, 5A), Torey Krug (5A), and Alexander Steen (2G, 3A in four games).

Among goaltenders, Michal Neuvirth stood out with back-to-back shutouts last week while Martin Jones continued his superb start (1 goal on 63 shots).

Rookie Connor McDavid also started to show what he’s capable of by scoring three goals and five points in four contests.
