MONTREAL -- Philadelphia Flyers' goaltender Pelle Lindbergh, who posted two wins and a tie to extend his undefeated streak to nine games, Monday was named National Hockey League Player of the Week.
Pittsburgh Penguins rookie center Mario Lemieux and New York Islanders right winger Mike Bossy also received consideration for the award for the period ending Nov. 18, the NHL said.
Lemieux, the first choice overall in the 1984 entry draft, scored a goal in each of three road games during the week and added four assists for seven points.
He managed just six points, one goal and five assists, in the Penguins' first seven games this season but has rebounded with 16 points in his last nine games, with four goals and 12 assists.
Bossy, who scored four goals and totalled eight points in three games, registered his 32nd career hat trick Nov. 17 against the New York Rangers to tie the NHL record set by Phil Esposito in 18 seasons with Chicago, Boston and the Rangers.
Lindbergh ran his overall record to eight wins and three ties in 13 decisions with a 6-1 win over the Hartford Whalers Nov. 15, a 5-3 win over the Boston Bruins on Nov. 17, and a 3-3 tie with the Islanders Nov. 18.
The 25-year-old native of Stockholm, Sweden, stopped 87 of 94 shots for a .926 save percentage and had a goals-against-average of 2.27 during the week.
Lindbergh is tied with Montreal netminder Steve Penney for the league lead in wins with eight and ranks second in goals against average at 2.51 compared to Penney's 2.38 average.
