Marchand, Crosby, and Elliott named NHL’s three stars of the week
Boston Bruins left-wing Brad Marchand, Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby and Calgary Flames goaltender Brian Elliott are the NHL’s three stars of the week.
Marchand led the league with nine points (five goals and four assists) in three games, all multi-point efforts. Marchand had 79 points entering Monday’s games, one behind NHL leaders Crosby and Edmonton captain Connor McDavid.
Crosby pulled even with McDavid in the scoring race after putting up six goals and two assists in four games last week.
Elliott helped power the Flames’ recent surge by going 3-0-0 with a 1.95 goalsagainst average and .926 save percentage last week.
