NEW YORK -- Boston Bruins center Marc Savard, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Andrew Raycroft and New York Rangers right wing Brendan Shanahan have been named the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending Nov. 5.

Each Monday, the NHL will recognize three players who delivered the League's top performances over the preceding week.

FIRST STAR -- MARC SAVARD, C, BOSTON BRUINS

Savard led all NHL scorers with eight points (three goals, five assists) in two games, recording points on 80% of the Bruins' goals. He opened the week with one goal and two assists in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres Nov. 2 and matched a career high with five points (two goals, three assists) in a 6-5 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning Nov. 4. Savard signed with Boston as a free agent after recording a career-high 97 points (28 goals, 69 assists) with Atlanta in 2005-06, finishing ninth in League scoring. The 5-10, 195 lb. Ottawa native leads the Bruins in scoring this season with 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) in 11 games entering tonight's game against the Thrashers (7 p.m., ET, Versus).

SECOND STAR -- ANDREW RAYCROFT, G, TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS

Raycroft posted a 3-0-0 record, 1.67 goals-against average and .943 save percentage in three appearances. He opened the week with 31 saves in a 4-2 home-ice win over the Atlanta Thrashers on Oct. 30, made 23 saves as the Leafs defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Nov. 1 and stopped 29 shots in a 4-1 win at Buffalo Nov. 4, becoming the first goaltender in 2006-07 to defeat the Sabres in regulation time. Raycroft improved his season record to 7-4-2 with a 2.87 goals-against average, .904 save percentage and one shutout.

THIRD STAR -- BRENDAN SHANAHAN, RW, NEW YORK RANGERS

Shanahan notched two goals and three assists in four games, moving into a tie for the League's goal-scoring lead with Atlanta's Marian Hossa (12). Shanahan notched the Rangers' lone goal and posted a game-high seven shots in a 4-1 loss at Los Angeles Oct. 30, tallied a goal and two assists in a 4-3 overtime victory at Anaheim Nov. 1 and recorded a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win at San Jose Nov. 2. The NHL's career goals leader among active players, Shanahan's tally at San Jose was the 610th of his 19-year career, tying Bobby Hull for 12th place on the all-time list.
