3. Mike Green- 2 G, 2 A, +2, 3 SOG
Mike Green produced his career low 24 points last season and was hobbled by injuries. But this year, he's back to his old self. Green has 6 points in 7 games. 4 of those points came last night in the 7-1 thrashing of the Detroit Red Wings. Green had two powerplay goals and two assists along with a plus two rating. My Stanley Cup pick is off to a 7-0-0 start.

2. Pekka Rinne- 33 Save Shutout
Last year's Vezina winner made 33 saves last night in the 2-0 win over the Flames. This was his 21st career shut-out, tying him with Tomas Vokoun for the most in franchise history. Although, Nashville defencman Jonathan Blum should deserve some credit for Rinne's shutout too.

1. Jonathan Quick- 3rd Consecutive Shutout, 28 Saves
Right now Jonathan Quick is just unstoppable. Three consecutive shutouts was something that had never been seen in Los Angeles Kings franchise history but Quick did it last night. By making 28 saves, he also "extended his scoreless streak to 188 minutes and 10 seconds, breaking the club mark of 185:55 by Rogie Vachon during the 1975-76 season."-cbsnews.com.

"It feels great to have that done — but at the end of the day, it's one game and two points. That's all I was focused on," Quick said.
