Ingram, Barzal, Hughes named NHL's three stars of the week

NEW YORK — Arizona goaltender Connor Ingram, New York Islanders centre Mathew Barzal and New Jersey centre Jack Hughes are the NHL's three stars of the week.

Ingram went 3-0-0 with a 1.63 goals-against average and .947 save percentage to help the Coyotes extend their winning streak to four games.

The 26-year-old has started every game during the winning streak, in which he's managed a 1.23 GAA and .961 save percentage, with one shutout. Arizona has moved into the first wild card position in the Western Conference in that time.

Barzal compiled seven points (two goals, five assists) in two appearances for New York, which won two of its three games last week.

He had his first three-point game of the season in a 5-4 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday before scoring the overtime winner in a four-point effort in a 5-4 victory over Carolina on Thursday.

Hughes led the Devils to a 2-1-0 week, picking up seven points (three goals, four assists) in that stretch. He became the fastest player in franchise history to reach the 30-point mark in a season with his goal in a 6-3 loss to San Jose on Friday.
