Georgiev

Alexandar Georgiev is your NHL No. 2 star of the week, the league just announced. From the league release:

Georgiev led the NHL in wins (3) – all of which required extra time – while stopping 82 of the 85 shots he faced to post a 3-0-0 record for the week (0.94 GAA, .965 SV%, 1 SO) and help the Avalanche (19-11-2, 40 points) move into third place in the Central Division. He opened the week by stopping all 26 shots he faced to record his 10th career shutout in a 1-0 shootout win over the New York Islanders Dec. 19. Georgiev then made 19 saves in a 2-1 overtime triumph over the Montreal Canadiens Dec. 21 followed by a 37-save performance in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Nashville Predators Dec. 23. The 26-year-old Georgiev, who was acquired by Colorado in a trade prior to the 2022-23 campaign, ranks among the top-10 goaltenders this season in wins (15; t-5th), goals-against average (2.36; 6th) and save percentage (.925; 6th).  

Alex Ovechkin was the No. 1 star (passed Gordie Howe on the all-time goals last last night) and Elias Pettersson was the third star.

Hats off to Georgie for his stellar week.
