The biggest and brightest from the past week in Fantasy Land...
Three Stars of the Week:
3rd Star, from the Pittsburgh Penguins, numero 87, Sidney Crosby... second straight week in this spot as he extended his point streak to 15 games with 5+1=6, plus-4 & 14 shots in three games last week.
2nd Star, from the Boston Bruins, numero 30, Tim Thomas... he was 2-0-1 and only allowed three goals while facing an average of 39.7 shots over three games.
1st Star, from the Buffalo Sabres, numero 30, Ryan Miller... we don't like giving the 1st star to a guy who only played twice last week but Miller had a perfect week in posting back-to-back shutouts.
Rookie Star of the Week: Taylor Hall, Edm - four goals and a plus-4 last week as the saviour led the Oilers to four straight wins.
Breakout Star of the Week: Alex Steen, StL - had 3+2=5 with a plus-4 & 21 shots in four games last week and is on pace for a decent 50 point & 280 shot season.
Breakdown of the Week: Nicklas Lidstrom, Det - was the highest scoring dman two weeks ago but since then he's gone pointless in his last six games. All he had to show for three games last week was a minus-1 and two shots.
Free Agent Star of the Week (less than 50% owned in Yahoo!): Roman Hamrlik, Mtl (26% owned) - with Markov out and Subban sitting, the Hammer is getting offensive as he had 1+4=5 with six PIMs & eight shots last week.
