The NHL's Three Stars of the week ending Jan 12 are Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Tony DeAngelo of the New York Rangers, and Cam Talbot of the Calgary Flames.

This week the Lightning had a heavy 4 game schedule and relied on Andrei starting in three of them. He finished each game with a victory which was against the Vancouver Canucks, Arizona Coyotes, and Philadelphia Flyers. He recorded a 0.67 GAA, .972 SV% - posting back to back shutouts versus the Coyotes and Flyers. His victory against the Flyers extended the Lightning's winning streak to 10 games, helping the team tie the franchise record during the 2018-19 season. After this week, Vasilevskiy improved his record to a 2.58 GAA, .915 SV% and 22 wins.
Representing Bauer Hockey, Andrei Vasilevskiy chooses the Vapor Line for his butterfly style goaltending. The 2X Pro gear features Curv Composite to add rigidity and stability to the equipment so goaltenders have reliable rebounds and time to react after the save.

Leading all NHL players this week was DeAngelo, defensemen for the New York Rangers, who finished with 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) in three games. In his game against the Colorado Avalanche, Tony setup 2 goals to help the team overcome the Av's 5-3. That boosted his momentum for his five-point performance against the New Jersey Devils, which included his first career hat trick. He also tied former Ranger blueliner, Brian Leetch, for most points by a defenseman during the regular season.
Tony scored his first hat trick with Bauer's latest Vapor stick, the Vapor Flylite. One of the biggest stick releases in 2019, the Flylite boasts an even quicker shot release and reduced weight thanks to the XE Elliptical Taper and ADV inspired ACL technology. Even though the Flylite weighs 384 grams, it has strong durability and a long pop life.

Posting a perfect week, Talbot won all three games to help Calgary move into first place in the Pacific Division. He ended the week with a 1.67 GAA and .953 SV%, with wins against the Blackhawks, Wild, and Oilers. He saved 100 shots out of 105 and improved his regular-season record to 7 wins, 2.54 GAA, and .922 SV%.
Talbot uses the Premier II Line for his butterfly style where the leg pads boast L1tecore Technology. This dual-density foam design reduces weight, improves balance, and provides predictable rebounds. Its strapping system also provides goalies with a quick drop and recovery, perfect for goalies who rely on their fast reflexes.
