Elliott Named No. 2 Star of the Week
Blues goalie Brian Elliott has been named one of the NHL\'s Three Stars of the Week.



NEW YORK – Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin, St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott and New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending April 7.

FIRST STAR – ALEX OVECHKIN, LW, WASHINGTON CAPITALS
Ovechkin led the NHL with seven goals and tied for the League lead with nine points in four games. He also paced all skaters with four power-play points, including two goals, raising his season totals to an NHL-best 14 power-play goals and 21 power-play points. Ovechkin began the week by scoring two goals, including the game-winner, and adding an assist in a 5-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes April 2. He netted the lone shootout goal in a 2-1 win over the New York Islanders April 4 and then recorded his 12th career hat trick, including the game-winner, and an assist in a 4-3 triumph over the Florida Panthers April 6. Ovechkin closed out the week by scoring two goals in a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning April 7, bumping his season goal total to 25 – tied for first in the NHL with the Lightning’s Steven Stamkos. The 27-year-old Moscow native and two-time Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy winner leads the Capitals and ranks sixth in the League with 25-18—43 in 39 games this season.
