The Boston Bruins kicked-off the week (Oct. 17-23) with home-and-home victories over the Washington Capitals to stretch their win-streak to four games.
Then King Henrik Lundqvist came to town and backstopped the New York Rangers to a 3-2 triumph over the Black and Gold.
Nonetheless, the B’s are in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference with a 4-2-0 record, but third in a surprisingly tight Northeast Division.
In victory and in defeat, three Boston players clearly stood out as the best of the best. Below are the Three Stars of the Week | Oct. 17-23, 2010.
