Congratulations to Caps’ forward Jason Chimera, who was awarded the third star of the week by the NHL.
THIRD STAR – JASON CHIMERA, LW, WASHINGTON CAPITALS
Chimera tied for the League lead with six points (2-4—6) in three games, helping the Capitals (7-7-0, 14 points) pick up four out of a possible six points. He opened the week with 1 1—2, his second multi-point game of the season, in a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks Oct. 28. Chimera then posted a career-high four points (1-3—4) in a 7-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers Nov. 1, stretching his goal-scoring streak to a career-long four games (4 5—9). His three assists also matched a career high, first accomplished March 25, 2007, as a member of the Blue Jackets. The 34-year-old native of Edmonton, Alta., has played in 14 games this season, ranking fourth on the Capitals with 11 points (5-6—11).

The Capitals defenseman’s glorious mustache was started way back before the season even started. According to Alzner, the coaching staff isn’t big into beards, so he found a way to beat the system.
