NHL Daily Power Play Recap 11/22/15: Ducks lose to Tampa Bay, 5-0

November 22, 2015

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


Ben Bishop celebrated his 29th birthday by stopping 30 shots en route to his 13th career shutout (first this season) and the Lightning’s second straight victory following a 1-3-1 stretch. Bishop, who made 13 of his saves in the second period, improved to 5-0-1 in six career appearances versus Anaheim (1.04 GAA, .965 SV%, 1 SO).

Lightning captain Steven Stamkos posted 2-1—3, including his 10th and 11th goals of the season – tied for fourth in the NHL (w/ Tyler Seguin).


Patrick Marleau collected a pair of assists to eclipse 1,000 NHL points (462-539—1,001 in 1,349 GP) and help the Sharks improve to 5-0-0 on their season-high, six-game road trip that concludes this afternoon in Columbus.

“I guess just having everybody coming up and congratulating me and throwing different numbers out there, it starts to take a little bit of shape how big it kind of is,” Marleau said. “A lot of teammates are a part of it over the years and it wouldn’t happen without them.”

Via Elias, the Sharks have won five consecutive games, all on the road, for the first time since Oct. 21-29, 2011 (also 5-0-0).

Marleau, the second overall selection by San Jose in the 1997 NHL Draft, became the 83rd player in League history – and first in Sharks history – to reach the 1,000-point milestone. Marleau also is San Jose’s all-time leader in goals and games played and ranks second in club history in assists.

Marleau, who reached the milestone at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, was drafted across the street at the former site of Civic Arena, the Penguins’ previous home. Only two other players from the 1997 NHL Draft have hit the 1,000-point milestone: current teammate Joe Thornton (361-912—1,273 in 1,305 GP) and Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa (489-576—1,065 in 1,190 GP).


Antti Niemi stopped all 22 shots he faced and both Jamie Benn (2-0—2) and Tyler Seguin (0-2—2) collected two points to power the Stars to their fifth consecutive victory.

At 17-4-0 (34 points), the League-leading Stars continued their best start to a season (through 21 GP) – in terms of wins and points – in the franchise’s 48-year history.

Niemi earned his 34th career shutout and second of the season (also Oct. 8 vs. PIT: 37 SV). He turned aside 46 of 47 shots in Dallas’ two wins over Buffalo in the past week (.979 SV%).

Benn notched his third multi-goal performance of the season to extend his point streak to five games (4-4—8) and reclaim the League lead in goals (14).

Seguin also extended his point streak to five games (2-5—7). He and teammate John Klingberg (0-1—1) share first in the NHL with 19 assists (also tied w/ Patrick Kane).
