NEW YORK — Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby, San Jose Sharks centre Joe Pavelski and Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk are the NHL’s three stars of the week.

Crosby earned MVP honours at the 2019 all-star game on Saturday as he led the Metropolitan Division to victory in the 3-on-3 tournament. He became the sixth player in NHL history to capture All-Star Game MVP honours as well as the Hart Memorial Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy, joining Jean Beliveau, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Bobby Orr and Joe Sakic.

Pavelski had a goal and four assists in two games before representing the hometown Sharks in the all-star game.

Dubnyk, also an all star, earned two wins for the Wild, compiling a 2.00 goals-against average and .926 save percentage.
