November 26, 2015

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


Anthony Duclair (1-0—1) scored the eventual game-winning goal and Max Domi (0-2—2) collected two helpers to help the Coyotes improve to 3-0-0 against the Ducks in 2015-16 (also wins on Oct. 14 at ANA: 4-0 W and Nov. 9 at ANA: 4-3 W OT).

Via Elias, the Coyotes have earned three consecutive victories against the Ducks in one season for the first time since Nov. 7, 2007 – March 11, 2008 (4-0-0).  Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett earned his 499th win behind an NHL bench.

Duclair (8-6—14) and Domi (8-10—18) share first among rookies in goals (w/ Dylan Larkin, DET). Domi also ranks second among rookies in assists and points, behind Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin (7-16—23). Duclair has scored five of his eight goals this season against the Ducks, including a hat trick on Oct. 14.

Coyotes forward Antoine Vermette (2-0—2), who won a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks after being acquired at last year’s Trade Deadline, scored his first regular-season goals since Feb. 14 vs. NYR (w/ ARI). He collected 4-3—7, including three-game winning goals in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Duclair (1-0—1) stretched his point streak to a career-high five games (2-4—6).


Ben Bishop made 37 saves through overtime – and stopped two shootout attempts – to lead the Lightning to their third consecutive victory and extend his personal point streak to five games (4-0-1, 1.36 GAA, .951 SV%, 1 SO).


Leading 2-1 after 40 minutes, the Canadiens added three unanswered goals in the third period to earn their third consecutive victory, pull into sole possession of top spot in the NHL standings and halt the Rangers’ home winning streak at nine games (its longest such streak since 1971-72).

At 17-4-2 (36 points), the Canadiens lead the League in wins (tied w/ DAL) and points. The victory propelled them ahead of the Rangers (16-4-2, 34 points) and idle Stars (17-5-0, 34 points), who share second place in terms of points.

Carey Price made 22 saves before being replaced by Mike Condon (11 SV) to start the third period. Price earned the decision to improve to 12-5-1 in 19 career regular-season appearances against the Rangers (1.74 GAA, .943 SV%, 7 SO).

Devante Smith-Pelly (2-0—2) registered his first career multi-goal game and first multi-point effort since Oct. 31, 2013 at BOS (1-1—2).

Tomas Plekanec (0-3—3) registered his ninth career three-assist game and second this season (also Oct. 23 at BUF). He paces the club with 7-16—23 this season (23 GP), including 0-6—6 in his last four contests.

Alex Galchenyuk (1-1—2) and Max Pacioretty (1-1—2) also registered multiple points for the Canadiens, who scored at least five goals in a game for the sixth time this season. They lead all NHL clubs with 83 goals in 2015-16.

The Canadiens improved to 11-3-0 in their last 14 regular-season meetings with the Rangers dating to Nov. 19, 2011 (NYR: 3-10-1).


Dmitry Orlov (1-1—2) scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and Evgeny Kuznetsov (1-2—3) notched an insurance marker in the final frame to help the Capitals improve to 7-2-1 in their last 10 contests overall.

At 15-5-1 (31 points), the Capitals are off to their second-best 21-game start to a season – in terms of wins and points – in the franchise’s 41-year history. They went 16-5-0 (32 points) through 21 games in 1991-92.

Orlov pushed his career-high point streak to four games (3-2—5) and goal streak to three contests, including back-to-back decisive tallies. He had six goals – and only one GWG (Jan. 15, 2012 vs. CAR) – in his first 137 career appearances before his current three-game stretch (three goals each in 2011-12 and 2013-14).

Kuznetsov posted his fourth three-point performance of the season and second in his last three outings (also Nov. 21 vs. COL: 1-2—3). He paces the Capitals with 8-16—24 this season (21 GP), including 3-6—9 in his last seven contests.

Braden Holtby made 23 saves to earn his fifth consecutive victory and League-leading 13th win of the season (13-4-1, 1.95 GAA, .924 SV%, 1 SO).


Patrick Kane collected two assists to extend his point streak to a career-high 17 games (10-18—28) and help the Blackhawks improve to 2-1-1 on their season-high six-game road trip.

Via Elias, Kane – who paces the League in assists and points this season (13-21—34 in 22 GP) – became the first player (on any team) to post a point streak of at least 17 games since March 7 – April 7, 2012, when Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis totaled 10-12—22 during a 17-game point streak.

Kane is tied for the League lead with 10 multi-point games this season (w/ Jamie Benn); he had 18 such performances in 2014-15.

Artemi Panarin also registered two helpers for the fifth multi-point outing of his career. The Korkino, Russia, native has compiled 7-16—23 in 2015-16 (22 GP) to lead rookies in assists and points.
