November 28, 2015

Down 2-0 with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, Marian Hossa (18:19) and Duncan Keith (19:33) scored 74 seconds apart to force overtime, where Artem Anisimov completed the comeback for the Blackhawks.

Via Elias, the Blackhawks won when trailing by two goals in the final two minutes of regulation for the second time in club history – and for the first time in 89 years (also Dec. 29, 1926 against the Montreal Maroons). They are the first team to accomplish the feat in the NHL since Jan. 7, 2014 when Sidney Crosby collected 1-1—2 in the final 1:11 of the third period and then scored the lone shootout goal to rally the Penguins past the Canucks (5-4 W SO).

Anisimov, who was acquired from the Blue Jackets during the offseason, scored his fourth career overtime goal. He has 10-6—16 in his first 23 games with the Blackhawks.

Patrick Kane (0-1—1) notched an assist on the tying goal with 26.6 seconds left in the third period to extend his career-high point streak to 18 games (10-19—29).

Via Elias, Kane – who paces the League in assists and points this season (13-22—35 in 23 GP) – became the first player (on any team) to post a point streak of 18 or more games since Nov. 5 – Dec. 28, 2010, when Penguins forward Sidney Crosby totaled 26-24—50 during a 25-game point streak.


The Bruins scored twice in the final four minutes of regulation, including the game-winning goal by David Krejci with 1:43 left on the clock, to overcome a pair of one-goal deficits and defeat the Rangers in the 2015 Discover Thanksgiving Showdown.

The Bruins extended their overall winning streak to five games, including three straight victories at TD Garden and four consecutive wins against an Original Six rival (TOR: 2-0 W, 4-3 W SO; DET: 3-2 W OT; and NYR: 4-3 W).

Via Elias, the Bruins have won four consecutive team games, all against Original Six opponents, for the first time in the NHL’s expansion era (since 1967-68). This marks the 28th time the club has played four or more straight games against Original Six teams within a season in the 48 years since expansion.

The Bruins improved to 12-1-3 in their last 16 meetings with the Rangers dating to April 1, 2012 (NYR: 4-11-1), including a five-game series victory in the second round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.


Braden Holtby made 32 saves, including 18 in the third period, to help the Capitals close their season-high five-game homestand with four straight wins (4-1-0) and improve to 8-2-1 in their last 11 contests overall.

At 16-5-1 (33 points), the Capitals are off to their second-best 22-game start to a season – in terms of wins and points – in the franchise’s 41-year history. They went 17-5-0 (34 points) through 21 games in 1991-92.

Holtby extended his personal winning streak to six games (1.83 GAA, .934 SV%, 1 SO), equaling the longest stretch of his career established in his rookie campaign from March 7-26, 2011 and matched from April 2-16, 2013. Overall, Holtby (14-4-0, 1.95 GAA, .925 SV%, 1 SO) leads the NHL in wins and goals-against average in 2015-16 (among goaltenders with at least 300:00 TOI).

Jason Chimera (1-1—2), Evgeny Kuznetsov (0-2—2) and John Carlson (0-2—2) each had two points apiece. Kuznetsov leads the Capitals – and ranks fifth in the League – with 8-18—26 this season (22 GP), including seven multi-point efforts.

The Capitals improved to 19-2-2 in their last 23 regular-season meetings with the Lightning at Verizon Center dating to March 18, 2007 (TBL: 4-15-4), including a 10-0-2 mark in their last 12 such contests.
