Hiller is NHL’s second star of the week.

As we noted after yesterday’s game, it helps to do well when the comissioner is watching.

From the official NHL release:

Hiller posted a 2-1-0 record, 0.67 goals-against average and .977 save percentage in three starts, concluding the week with consecutive shutouts and an active scoreless streak of 154:50. Hiller began the week by stopping 20 of 22 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators Jan. 5. He made 27 saves for his third shutout of the season in a 6-0 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Jan. 7 and stopped 37 shots in blanking the San Jose Sharks 1-0 on Jan. 9. Hiller improved his season record to 21-14-3 with a 2.39 goals-against average, .929 save percentage and four shutouts in a League-leading 39 appearances. Hiller also tops all NHL goaltenders in saves (1,156), is tied for second in victories, ranks third in save percentage and is tied for fourth in shutouts (four). He is the first Ducks goaltender to post back-to-back shutouts since J.S. Giguere had three straight from Dec. 8-15, 2002.
