NEW YORK, - Forward Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning was named the NHL's first star of the week Monday.

Goaltenders Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks are the second and third stars, respectively.

St. Louis had five goals and eight points in four games. He scored four goals in a 5-4 loss to San Jose on Saturday night, the second in club history to do so after Chris Kontos achieved the feat in 1992.

Quick was the second star after posting a 2-0-1 record, 0.97 goals-against average and .967 save percentage with one shutout. The 27-year-old American has a 14-6-2 record, 2.05 GAA and .918 save percentage this season.

Crawford also had a 2-0-1 record last week with a 2.22 goals-against average and .916 save percentage. In 34 appearances this season, the 29-year-old Montreal native has a 19-7-7 record, 2.44 GAA and .912 save percentage.
