The NHL has named it’s three stars for the week, and our Mr. Price is number one. Edmonton goalie Nikolai Khabibulin is number 2 and Philadelphia’s Jaromir Jagr is number 3.
Congratulations Carey. My wife is extra thrilled.
Here’s what NHL.com released:
Price, the First Star, allowed only 4 goals on 80 shots as he beat the Flyers on Wednesday and led the Canadiens to a home-and-home sweep of the rival Bruins on Thursday and Saturday.
Khabibulin, the Second Star, improved his record to 5-0-2 this season and helped the Oilers extend their winning streak to five games by recording wins over the Canucks, Capitals and Blues.
Jagr, the Third Star, busted out offensively after failing to score a goal in his first seven games back in the League. He has 5 goals in his last four games for the Flyers. That includes a pair of two-goal efforts, including Saturday against the Hurricanes, when he also had the game-winner.
