November 24, 2015

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


Jonathan Quick stopped 33 shots, including all 15 he faced in the third period, to help the Kings bounce back from a Sunday loss and improve to 4-2-0 in their last six contests. Quick, who was pulled from Sunday’s 4-3 defeat at CAR, upped his record to 7-2-0 in nine career appearances vs. FLA (1.72 GAA, .937 SV%, 1 SO).

Kings forward Marian Gaborik played in his 900th game. Kings forward Tyler Toffoli notched his 11th goal of the season, tied for fifth in the NHL.


The Hurricanes erased a two-goal deficit in the third period, but Shayne Gostisbehere scored 24 seconds into overtime to help the Flyers snap a three-game skid (0-1-2).

Gostisbehere – a third-round selection (78th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft who hails from Pembroke Pines, Fla. – registered his first career game-winning goal (2-1—3 in 7 GP). Via Elias, he became the third rookie in Flyers history to score a regular-season overtime goal. The others, also both defensemen: Murray Baron (March 13, 1991 at VAN) and Dmitry Yushkevich (April 16, 1993 at HFD).

Claude Giroux added 1-2—3, including a shorthanded goal, for his first three-point performance since Dec. 20, 2014 at TOR (2-2—4). He paces the club with 7-9—16 this season (21 GP).

Michal Neuvirth made 31 saves to improve to 5-2-1 in nine career appearances vs. CAR (2.56 GAA, .926 SV%, 1 SO).


Tuukka Rask stopped a season-high 39 shots through overtime – and also turned aside all three attempts he faced in the shootout – to lead the Bruins to a sweep of their home-and-home series with the Maple Leafs.

Rask, the 21st overall selection by Toronto in the 2005 NHL Draft, improved to 13-3-1 in 19 career regular-season appearances against his former club (1.80 GAA, .937 SV%, 2 SO). That includes a 6-2-0 record at Air Canada Centre (1.88 GAA, .940 SV%, 1 SO).

Brad Marchand scored twice, including one shorthanded goal, to extend his point streak to five games (5-1—6) and goal streak to four contests (5-0—5), equaling a career high last achieved Feb. 28 – March 8 (5-1—6).

Marchand shares first in the NHL with two shorthanded goals this season. He has registered more shorthanded goals than any other player since entering the League in 2009-10 (17).
