Crawford, Hall, Faulk named NHL’s three stars of the week

Chicago goalie Corey Crawford, Edmonton winger Taylor Hall and Carolina defenseman Justin Faulk have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Dec. 13, the league announced on Monday.


Crawford went 3-0-0 with a 0.33 goals-against average, .989 save percentage and two shutouts to help the Blackhawks (17-10-4, 38 points) climb into second place in the Central Division.

Hall tied for first in the NHL with 3-3—6, including two game-winning goals, to help the Oilers (13-15-2, 28 points) complete a perfect 5-0-0 homestand with a pair of victories.

Faulk also collected 3-3—6, highlighted by a trio of multi-point performances, to lead the Hurricanes (12-14-4, 28 points) to a pair of wins in three starts.

Worth pointing out that Faulk has 12 goals this year, and all 12 have come with the man advantage (which is crazy).

That’s put him in the conversation for the most power play goals by a defenseman in a season — the record is held by Sheldon Souray, who scored 19 with Montreal during the 2006-07 campaign.
