Brian Elliott has been named the NHL's 2nd Star of the Week for the week ending April 7th. Elliott joined Alex Ovechkin (1st star) and Henrik Lundqvist (3rd star) as the league's selections for most influential and most valuable players from the previous seven days.
Elliott earned the honors after posting a 3-0-0 record along with a 1.45 GAA in three appearances last week. He came in to relieve an injured Jaroslav Halak, defeating Minnesota by a score of 4-1. He followed this effort with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Finally, his best performance came on Sunday when he blanked the Detroit Red Wings 1-0.no comments
