Vlasic Named NHL\'s \'Second Star\'
NEW YORK - Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price, San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Philadelphia Flyers right wing Matt Read have been named the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending Nov. 20.

FIRST STAR -- CAREY PRICE, G, MONTREAL CANADIENS

Price captured NHL First Star honors for the second time this season, posting a 2-0-1 record with a 0.65 goals-against average, .973 save percentage and two shutouts. Price began the week by stopping 29 of 32 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Nov. 14. He stopped 25 shots for his first shutout of the season and picked up an assist in a 4-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Nov. 16 and posted his second consecutive shutout with 17 saves in a 4-0 win over the New York Rangers Nov. 19. Price blanked a Rangers club that had won seven consecutive games and outscored the opposition 27-11 in that span. Playing in his fifth NHL season, the fifth overall selection in the 2005 NHL Draft improved his career record to 106-82-7, 12th on the Canadiens' all-time list for goaltender victories. He needs four wins to tie Rogie Vachon for 11th place all-time and 11 wins to tie Charlie Hodge for 10th place.

SECOND STAR -- MARC-EDOUARD VLASIC, D, SAN JOSE SHARKS


Vlasic tied for the League scoring lead last week with seven points (one goal, six assists) and posted a +7 rating as the Sharks (12-5-1) won three consecutive games and took the Pacific Division lead. Vlasic recorded the first four-point game in his six-year NHL career, tallying the game-winning goal, three assists and a career-high +5 rating in a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Nov. 17. He closed the week with three assists and a +2 rating in a 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche Nov. 20. The 24-year-old Montreal native improved his team-leading plus-minus rating to +11 and increased his season points total to 11 (two goals, nine assists), on pace to easily surpass his career high of 36 points set in 2008-09.

THIRD STAR -- MATT READ, RW, PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

Read shared the League goal-scoring lead last week, tallying four times as the Flyers (11-5-3) won two of three starts. Read scored in each game, beginning with a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes Nov. 14. He notched the game-winning goal with 18.6 seconds remaining in regulation time in the Flyers' 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes Nov. 17 and closed the week by tallying two goals in a career-high 21:37 of ice time in a 6-4 loss to the Winnipeg Jets Nov. 19. Signed as a free agent by Philadelphia on March 24, 2011 following four standout seasons at Bemidji State, Read tops all NHL rookies in goals (eight) and ranks fourth in points (13).
