Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov, Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov and Kings goalie Jonathan Quick have been named the NHL’s three stars for the past week.

Kuznetsov paced the NHL with six assists and nine points – and also shared the League lead with a +5 rating – as the Capitals (6-1-0, 12 points) won all three of their games.

Markov shared first among defensemen with 1-5-6 as the Canadiens (9-0-0, 18 points) won all three of their contests to extend the franchise’s best start in its 98-year NHL history.

Quick posted a 2-0-0 record with a 1.00 goals-against average, .971 save percentage and one shutout as the Kings (5-3-0, 10 points) extended their winning streak to five games.
