NEW YORK, N.Y. - Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist was named the NHL's first star of the week Monday after leading all players with six goals last week.

He scored five goals over four games to help the Bruins move into top spot in the overall standings and extend their winning streak to 12 games entering play Monday night.
