ST. LOUIS, QUICK AND CRAWFORD NAMED NHL ‘THREE STARS' OF THE WEEK


                NEW YORK (Jan. 20, 2014) - Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Martin St.
Louis, Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick and Chicago Blackhawks
goaltender Corey Crawford have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the
week ending Jan. 19.

FIRST STAR - MARTIN ST. LOUIS, RW, TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

                St. Louis paced all skaters with five goals and eight points,
highlighted by a four-goal performance Jan. 18 versus the San Jose Sharks,
to help the Lightning (29-16-5, 63 points) maintain second place in the
Atlantic Division. He began the week with one point in each of his first
three games: an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets Jan. 13,
an assist in a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers Jan. 14 and a goal in
a 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Islanders Jan. 16. St. Louis then
became the second player in Lightning history - and first since the team's
first regular-season game Oct. 17, 1992 (Chris Kontos) - to score four
goals in a game in a 5-4 loss to the Sharks Jan. 18. He also matched his
own club record by tallying three goals in one period, last accomplished
Jan. 15, 2004. St. Louis then closed the week by collecting one assist in a
5-3 triumph over the Carolina Hurricanes Jan. 19. The 38-year-old Laval,
Que., native leads the Lightning and ranks seventh in the NHL with 25-25-50
in 50 games this season, including 8-4-12 during an eight-game point
streak, the longest active streak in the League.

SECOND STAR - JONATHAN QUICK, G, LOS ANGELES KINGS

                Quick posted a 2-0-1 record with a 0.97 goals-against average, .967
save percentage and one shutout to backstop the Kings (29-14-6, 64 points)
to five out of a possible six points. He made 28 saves in a 1-0 victory
over the Vancouver Canucks Jan. 13 to earn his second shutout of the season
and the 27th of his NHL career, five shy of Rogie Vachon for the club
record. Quick followed that up with another 28-save performance in a 4-1
win over the St. Louis Blues Jan. 16. He closed the week by making 33
saves, plus another two in the shootout, in a 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red
Wings Jan. 18. The 27-year-old Milford, Conn., native has compiled a 14-6-2
record with a 2.05 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 23
appearances this season, including a 4-1-2 mark with a 1.40 goals-against
average and .946 save percentage since being activated from the injured
reserve list Jan. 4.

THIRD STAR - COREY CRAWFORD, G, CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

                Crawford went 2-0-1 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .916 save
percentage to help the Blackhawks (32-8-11, 75 points) remain in first
place in the Central Division. He recorded 23 saves in a 3-2 overtime loss
to the Colorado Avalanche Jan. 14. Crawford then made 19 saves in a 4-2
victory over the League-leading Anaheim Ducks Jan. 17. He capped the week
by turning aside 34 shots, plus another two in the shootout, in a 3-2 win
over the Boston Bruins Jan. 19 in the teams' first meeting since the 2013
Stanley Cup Final. The 29-year-old Montreal native has played in 34 games
this season, posting a 19-7-7 record with a 2.44 goals-against average
and .912 save percentage.

Marty St. Louis had five goals -- including Saturday's four-goal game against the Sharks -- and eight points this past week.
