Only Marc Savard of the Boston Bruins had a better week among NHL forwards than Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks, with the forwards finishing 1-2 as the league's stars of the week.
Savard led all scorers with eight points [two goals, six assists] in four games for the week Nov. 17-23. In the team's 7-4 win over Buffalo, the centre recorded a goal and three assists.
Henrik Sedin has been setting up his brother, Daniel, and Pavol Demitra to great effect for Vancouver. Sedin notched seven assists in the team's four games in the past week.
He had assists on all Canuck goals in a 3-1 road win over Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon.
The No. 3 star recognized by the league was Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, who won all three of his starts. Khabibulin stopped 101 of 110 shots during the week and stood tall in a shootout win over Phoenix.
He hasn't suffered a regulation loss in his last 11 starts.
