(CBS) After posting a 5-0 record and a 1.78 goals-against average to start the season, Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford earned NHL Second-Star Of The Week honors Monday.

Crawford has a .933 save percentage through five starts as the Blackhawks have jumped out to a franchise-record 6-0-0 record. The week culminated in a 29-save performance Sunday night as the Blackhawks held off the Red Wings with a 2-1 overtime victory at the United Center.

San Jose Sharks left-winger Patrick Marleau was named first star, while Tampa Bay Lighting right-winger Martin St. Louis was named third star. Marleau already has nine goals and 13 points through five games as the Sharks have a 5-0 record. St. Louis has eight assists and 11 points as the Lightning have jumped out to a 4-1 start.
