Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby, L.A. goalie Jonathan Quick and Calgary center Sean Monahan have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Mar. 20, the league announced on Monday.


Crosby shared the League lead with 2-5—7 in four outings to help the Penguins (40-24-8, 88 points) extend their winning streak to six games and move into second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Quick went 3-0-0 with a 1.32 goals-against average, .953 save percentage and one shutout to help the Pacific Division-leading Kings (44-22-5, 93 points) post four victories and clinch their sixth playoff berth in the past seven seasons.

Monahan paced the NHL with five goals and tied for the League lead with seven points in four games to lift the Flames (31-35-6, 68 points) to a 3-0-1 record.

And heeeere come the Penguins. Led by Crosby’s scoring exploits, Pittsburgh currently holds home-ice advantage in the opening playoff round, and is now just one point back of Florida for the second in the overall Eastern Conference standings.

Crosby also now sits third in the NHL in scoring with 76 points, trailing only Jamie Benn (80) and Patrick Kane (92).
