3 Stars of the Week feb 11.png

Binnington had a tremendous week boasting a 1.31 GAA, .954 SV %, and one shutout. With the help of Binnington's performance, the Blues climbed their way into a wild-card spot and notched their sixth straight win. Jordan rocks a CCM setup with hybrid style Extreme Flex III leg pads, and Extreme Flex III blocker and catcher. The Flex III leg pads have great five-hole coverage and amazing cross-crease movement. He switches over to the Premier side of CCM by using the Premiere II Composite goalie stick, most likely for its durability. Up top it looks like Jordan likes to switch things up because he is rocking the Bauer Profile 960XPM goalie mask, one of the most protective and comfortable helmets to date.

Patrice Bergeron, what a legend. Hitting an amazing milestone by reaching 1,000 games played and all done as a Boston Bruin, he has joined a very exclusive club. He joins fellow members Cashman, Johnny Bucyk, Ray Bourque, and Don Sweeney among elite Bruin status. Bergeron had an incredible week to go along with his milestone by racking up four goals and three assists, helping his team go 3-0-1 and sliding into third place in the Atlantic Division. With that said, Patty is one of the top faces for CCM. With CCM headquarters in Quebec, and Berg being raised there himself, this is no surprise. On top, he wears the CCM Resistance helmet, which features an innovative liner called the R.E.D. System (Rotational Energy Dampening) which does a really amazing job of managing rotational impacts. For mitts, a classic guy wears a classic fit, using the traditional fitting Tacks 4-Roll hockey gloves. The Tacks 4-Roll has a great broken-in-feel right out of the box and offers pro-level protection against slashes and blocked shots. Patty uses the CCM Super Tacks AS1 hockey stick which has incredible accuracy for a mid-kick stick. CCM added extra stiffness in the hosel that works with the ACU3 blade core to provide more stability to the lower portion of the stick, which results as a much more accurate shot. Staying loyal to the Tacks family, Patrice skates in the Super Tacks AS1 hockey skates. The AS1's improve performance, fit, durability and comfort from the original one-piece Super Tacks boot. New to the AS1's are the custom support insoles, allowing players to tailor their footbeds to their specific arch type.

With 30 of his 36 points tallied as a Blackhawk since his trade in November, it is no surprise that he came out this week as the third star. Scoring two goals and five assists in only three games, Strome is finding his place amongst the Chicago roster and helping his team climb their way back within view of a playoff spot. Strome is also a CCM guy, sporting the old school Vector V08 helmet up top. He uses the CCM Ultra Tacks hockey gloves but gets more new school by rocking the unreleased Jetspeed FT2 hockey stick. Unlike Patrice, Strome still rocks the original one-piece Super Tacks hockey skates.
