Price, Vlasic and Read named NHL’s three stars of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was virtually unbeatable last week and was named the league’s first star Monday as a result.

Price posted a 2-0-1 record with a 0.65 goals-against average, .973 save percentage and two shutouts in three starts. His lone loss came in a shootout to Buffalo.

San Jose Sharks defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic was given the NHL’s second star of the week while Philadelphia Flyers winger Matt Read took home third star honours.
