NHL Daily Power Play Recap 11/21/15: Kings fall to Detroit

November 21, 2015

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


Mike Green and Dylan Larkin scored 2:23 apart in the second period to snap a 1-1 tie and help the Red Wings extend their point streak to three contests (2-0-1). Larkin, 19, scored for the third consecutive game (3-0—3). Elias says that he became the first teenager to record a goal in three straight games for the Red Wings since 1984-85, when Steve Yzerman posted a pair of four-game goal streaks.

Red Wings teammates Justin Abdelkader and Henrik Zetterberg both picked up two assists.

Kings forward Tyler Toffoli notched one assist to extend his point streak to a career-high six games (1-6—7).

Kings forward Jeff Carter (2-0—2) registered his second multi-goal game of the season (also Oct. 22 at SJS: 2-2—4).


Playing in his first game since Oct. 29, Carey Price made 33 saves – including 14 in the second period – to lead the Canadiens past the Islanders in the first half of their home-and-home series.

At 15-4-2 (32 points), the Candiens moved into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference. They also tied the idle Stars (16-4-0, 32 points) – in terms of points – for first place in the NHL standings.

Price – the reigning Hart Memorial Trophy, Ted Lindsay Award, Vezina Trophy and William M. Jennings Trophy winner – improved to 8-2-0 in his first 10 appearances of the season (2.11 GAA, .934 SV%, 2 SO). Via Elias, he became the ninth goaltender in Canadiens history to win eight (or more) of his first 10 games of a season and the first to do so since 1977-78 (Ken Dryden: 8-1-1).

Jeff Petry (2-0—2) registered his first career multi-goal game (335 GP). He also scored his second game-winning goal of the season (21 GP), double his total from his first 314 NHL appearances (1 GWG).


Leon Draisaitl and Taylor Hall both posted 1-2—3 to power the Oilers to a 3-2-1 record in their past six games at Rexall Place.

Draisaitl, who was recalled from the Bakersfield Condors (AHL) on Oct. 29, has 7-10—17 in his first 10 outings of the season, including 4-6—10 during a career-high five-game point streak. He had 2-7—9 in his first 37 NHL appearances.

Per Elias, Draisaitl became the first Oilers player to collect 17 (or more) points in his first 10 personal appearances of a season since 1989-90, when Mark Messier also notched 7-10—17 in his first 10 games.

Hall also extended his point streak to five games (3-5—8). He ranks fourth in the NHL with 9-15—24 this season (20 GP), including 5-11—16 in 10 games since Draisaitl’s recall.
