NHL Daily Power Play Recap 10/19/15

October 19, 2015

For the latest NHL news, check out The DSH's Daily Power Play Recap below:


Anton Khudobin made 34 saves, including 16 in the third period, to backstop the Ducks to their first win of the season and a 10-1-0 record in their past 11 meetings with the Wild (dating to Feb. 14, 2012).

Knotted at 1-1 late in the first period, the Ducks scored three unanswered goals – by Rickard Rakell, Mike Santorelli and Hampus Lindholm – to snap their four-game season-opening skid (0-3-1). Rakell registered his second game-winning goal in 98 career NHL appearances (also March 4 vs. MTL).

Khudobin, who the Ducks acquired in an offseason trade, improved to 42-37-8 in 93 career NHL appearances (2.41 GAA, .918 SV%, 4 SO). He also picked up his first win in three career appearances versus the Wild (1-2-0, 3.03 GAA, .883 SV%).

Santorelli posted his first goal with his new team.


Matt Duchene tied the game at 15:57 of the second period, but Tyler Toffoli scored 23 seconds later to propel the Kings to their second straight win following a 0-3-0 start to the season.

Jonathan Quick made 22 saves to improve to 13-4-1 in 19 career appearances vs. COL (2.25 GAA, .912 SV%, 2 SO). Overall, the Kings improved to 8-0-1 in their last nine meetings with the Avalanche dating to Feb. 23, 2013, including six straight wins.

Kings' Coach Darryl Sutter earned his 549th career victory to tie Marc Crawford for 14th place on the NHL’s all-time wins list among head coaches.

Avalanche veteran forward Jarome Iginla (0-1—1) recorded his 1,229th career point (591-638—1,229) to tie Norm Ullman (490-739—1,229) for 39th place on the NHL’s all-time points list. He now sits three points shy of tying Phil Housley (338-894—1,232) for 38th place.

Avalanche goaltender Reto Berra made 38 saves, but saw his shutout streak end.


Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, to power the Blues to their fourth straight win overall and a 5-0-2 record in seven all-time visits to MTS Centre.

Tarasenko, who registered his 10th career multi-goal performance, stretched his season-opening point streak to six games (5-4—9). Via Elias, he became the first Blues player to post at least one point in each of the team’s first six games of one season since 2008-09, when Paul Kariya (1-9—10), Brad Boyes (5-4—9) and Keith Tkachuk (7-0—7) all did so.

Tarasenko picked up his first game-winning goal of the season after establishing a career high with six in 2014-15. Overall, he is tied for first in the NHL this season in goals (w/ Jamie Benn, Zach Parise and Tomas Plekanec) and points (w/ David Krejci and Henrik Zetterberg).

Brian Elliott made 27 saves to improve to 4-0-0 this season (2.01 GAA, .918 SV%). He also improved to 9-2-3 in 15 career appearances vs. WPG/ATL (2.68 GAA, .903 SV%), including a 5-0-2 record since joining the Blues (2.05 GAA, .921 SV%).
