The NHL announced it's weekly Three Stars today with Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas earning the top spot. Thomas recorded back-to-back shutouts this week over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators. Timmy stopped 20 shots in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Leafs and recorded 29 saves on Saturday's 4-0 victory over the Sens. The veteran netminder has started the season with a flawless 6-0-0 record to go along with 3 shutouts, a .984 save percentage, and a 0.50 goals against average. He has given up just 3 goals on 185 shots this season.

Former Bruin Joe Thornton was given the 2nd Star for racking up 8 points in 2 games (3-5-8) for the San Jose Sharks last week. Thornton scored his 4th career hat trick in a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night. Jumbo Joe has 15 points (5-10-15) in 9 games this season.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was named the Third Star. Keith totaled 7 points in 3 games (1-6-7).
