NEW YORK -- Buffalo Sabres netminder Ryan Miller and New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, along with Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry have been named the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending March 27.

Miller was named the First Star after going 3-0-0 with a pair of shutouts and a minuscule 0.67 goals-against average and .976 save percentage last week. He stopped 83-of-85 shots he faced, including a 31-save whitewash of Montreal on March 22 and a 30-save outing in a 1-0 decision over the Devils last Saturday.

The 30-year-old Michigan native upped his record to 33-21-8 with a 2.58 GAA and five shutouts this season.

Perry took home the Second Star after racking up an NHL-best five goals and ranked second in the league with six points over a three-game stretch. He tallied two goals and one assist in a 5-4 loss to Nashville on March 24, then tallied both scores in the third period as Anaheim got by Chicago, 2-1, two days later.

Lundqvist gained the Third Star by posting a 2-0-1 record, 0.32 GAA, .987 save percentage and a pair of shutouts for the playoff-hopeful Rangers.

The 29-year-old Swede blanked the Panthers and Bruins last week, upping his league-best shutout total to 11. His 26 saves during last Saturday's 1-0 win over Boston gave him a new career-high in shutouts, breaking his old mark of 10 set in 2007-08.
