NEW YORK, N.Y. - Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, Ottawa Senators centre Jason Spezza and Washington Capitals goaltender Tomas Vokoun were named the NHL three stars of the week Monday.

Quick became the first Kings goalie to post three consecutive shutouts as L.A. improved to 5-1-1, matching the best start in franchise history.

He made 27 saves in a 5-0 win over the St. Louis Blues last Tuesday and recorded his 100th career victory with a 28-save performance in Thursday's 2-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.

The 25-year-old Quick is the first goaltender to record three straight shutouts since Columbus' Steve Mason in December 2008 and improved to 5-0-1 with a 0.81 goals-against average and a .972 save percentage in six appearances this season.

Spezza registered seven points (three goals, four assists) last week in helping the Senators to two wins in three starts.

Vokoun, meanwhile, helped the Capitals extend their franchise-record start to 7-0-0 by posting three consecutive victories with a 1.00 goals-against average, .968 save percentage and one shutout.
