Roli Rewarded: Islanders goalie Dwayne Roloson named NHL first star of the week

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. – New York Islanders goaltender Dwayne Roloson was named the National Hockey League’s first star of the week Monday.

Roloson posted a 3-0-0 record last week with a 0.98 goals-against average and .972 save percentage.

Zetterberg recorded seven points (three goals, four assists) over three games last week.

Crosby had seven points (4-3) in four games to help the Penguins climb into first place in the overall standings.

He recorded at least one point in each contest, stretching his active point streak to 24 games. It’s the longest streak in the NHL since Mats Sundin posted a 30-game streak with the Quebec Nordiques in 1992-93.
