The streaking Kings can seemingly do no wrong lately, as Jeff Carter scored on a breakaway with 17.4 seconds remaining in overtime to power Los Angeles to their seventh straight victory following a 0-3-0 start to the season. The Kings have also won four consecutive games on home ice.

Tyler Toffoli (2-0—2) scored his eighth and ninth goals of the season to move into a tie with Dallas’ Jamie Benn for the League-lead.

Jonathan Quick made 31 saves to earn his sixth consecutive win. Quick has a 1.31 goals-against average, a .955 save percentage and one shutout during his six-game winning streak.

The Kings snapped a five-game winless streak versus Nashville dating to Nov. 2, 2013 (0-3-2).

Kings forward Milan Lucic (0-1—1) extended his point streak to five games (2-4—6).


Antoine Roussel (1-2—3) posted a career-high three points – which included scoring the game-winning goal at 13:33 of the third period – to help the Stars improve to 9-2-0.

Per Elias, the Stars equaled their best start to a season in franchise history through the first 11 games (also 9-2-0 in 2006-07 and 1996-97).

Vernon Fiddler (1-2—3) equaled a career-high with three points (Last: 2-1—3 on April 9, 2013 vs. LAK).

Patrick Sharp (1-1—2) has scored in three straight games (4-1—5) and has 5-3—8 in his last six games vs. SJS. Tyler Seguin (1-1—2) is tied for the League-lead with 11 assists and has 6-4—10 in nine career games vs. SJS.

Antti Niemi made 26 saves in his first career regular-season appearance against his former club and improved to 6-1-0 (2.61 GAA, .915 SV%, 1 SO).


Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 21 shots he faced and four different members of the Penguins found the back of the net in a shutout win over the Maple Leafs.

Fleury posted the 40th shutout of his career. Fleury ranks third among active goaltenders in shutouts, trailing only FLA’s Roberto Luongo (68) and NYR’s Henrik Lundqvist (55).

Fleury – who also posted his 14th career assist – recorded a shutout AND an assist in the same game for the second time in his career (also Oct. 25, 2014 at NSH). Per Elias, Fleury is the first goaltender in Penguins history to post a shutout AND an assist in the same game twice.

Elias adds that in addition to Fleury, only four other goaltenders in franchise history have posted a shutout AND an assist in the same game. The others: Tomas Vokoun (March 28, 2013 vs. WPG), Tom Barrasso (Nov. 14, 1998 vs. FLA), Wendell Young (Nov. 14, 1989 vs. NYR) and Les Binkley (March 25, 1970 vs. MNS).

Eric Fehr (1-1—2) scored a shorthanded goal in his Penguins debut. Per Elias, he became the second player in franchise history to score a shorthanded goal in his team debut. The other: Sergei Zubov on Oct. 7, 1995 vs. TOR.

The Penguins improved to 7-0-0 in their last seven games vs. TOR dating to Nov. 27, 2013, which includes a 3-0-0 record at the Air Canada Centre.
