Offseason acquisitions Jhonas Enroth (31 SV) and Milan Lucic (GWG) combined to lead the Kings to their 10th victory in their last 13 outings following a 0-3-0 start to the season. Enroth improved to 3-0-0 in his first three appearances with the Kings, yielding just two goals on 96 shots (0.67 GAA, .979 SV%, 1 SO).


Four clubs – the Rangers, Stars, Capitals and Wild – won on Thursday to continue their record-setting starts to the season:

Mats Zuccarello registered 1-2—3 and Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves, including a sprawling paddle stop in the first period, to help the Rangers extend their point streak to 11 games (9-0-2), including seven consecutive wins. At 12-2-2 (26 points), the Rangers are off to their best 16-game start to a season – in terms of wins – in the franchise’s 89-year history. Their 26 points also equal a club record through the opening 16 contests of a season, set in 1971-72 (11-1-4). The Rangers last posted a point streak of 11 or more games from Feb. 9 – March 10, 2008, when they had a 13-game run (10-0-3).

Ales Hemsky notched 1-2—3 and Jamie Benn scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:55 remaining in regulation to lift the Stars to their fourth victory in their past five contests. At 13-4-0 (26 points), the Stars are off to their best 17-game start to a season – in terms of wins and points – in the franchise’s 48-year history.

Jason Chimera collected 2-1—3 to help the Capitals overcome a pair of one-goal deficits and pick up their fifth win in their last seven outings. At 11-4-0 (22 points), the Capitals have equaled their best 15-game start to a season – in terms of wins and points – in the franchise’s 41-year history (also 1991-92: 11-4-0 and 2010-11: 11-4-0).

Jason Zucker scored twice, including the winning goal at 3:50 of overtime, to lead the Wild back from an early 2-0 deficit en route to their third consecutive victory. At 10-3-2 (22 points), the Wild have matched their best 15-game start to a season – in terms of points – in the franchise’s 15-year history (also 2002-03: 10-3-2 and 2006-07: 11-4-0).


The Coyotes and Avalanche overcame deficits to continue their recent success against their Thursday opponents:

The Coyotes scored four unanswered goals – powered by 1-1—2 from Max Domi – to overcome an early 1-0 deficit and extend their point streak against the Oilers to 19 games (16-0-3) dating to March 17, 2011 (EDM: 3-13-3), including six consecutive wins. Domi has 8-7—15 in his first 16 NHL outings (including five multi-point performances); he ranks first among rookies in goals and second in points.

The Avalanche recorded three unanswered goals – including the tiebreaker by Matt Duchene (1-1—2) at 6:49 of the third period – to overcome a 2-0 deficit en route to their eighth consecutive victory at TD Garden dating to March 24, 2001 (BOS: 0-7-1). Duchene has 6-3—9, including four multi-point performances, in his last six contests after totaling 1-1—2 in his first 10 games of the season.


Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane registered 1-1—2 to extend his point streak to 11 games (8-11—19) and goal streak to five contests (5-6—11).

Kane, who has 11-14—25 overall this season (including at least one point in 14 of his first 16 outings), shares first in the NHL in goals (w/ Jamie Benn) and points (w/ Tyler Seguin).

Kane’s 11-game point streak is the longest in the NHL this season and three shy of his career high, set Nov. 30 – Dec. 28, 2013 (8-17—25 in 14 GP). He has five multi-point performances during the 11-game run, including four in his past five contests (5-6—11).

Kane’s five-game goal streak is tied for the longest in the NHL this season (w/ Joe Pavelski) and equals a career high, last achieved Feb. 1-10, 2013 (7-2—9).
