Snubbed on Monday when the season’s first players of the week were announced, Anderson’s wins over Washington and Montreal capped off a stellar month that saw him finish with a 5-0-1 record with a 0.99 GAA and .967 SP.
Patrick Marleau was the second star on the strength of four straight 2 goal games, while Thomas Vanek and his two 5 point games was the third star.
