NHL Daily Power Play Recap 11/29/15: Kings defeat Chicago in OT

November 29, 2015

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


Trailing 2-0 entering the third period, Jeff Carter (1-0—1) and Marian Gaborik (2-0—2) tallied third period goals to force overtime, where Gaborik potted the winning goal to complete the comeback. With the win, the Kings overcame a two-goal deficit to win a game for the first time since Mar. 25, 2014 (5-4 W at WSH).

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick (20 saves) improved to 4-1-1 in his last six outings and 11-7-1 overall this season (2.28 GAA, .917 SV%, 1 SO).

Chicago's Patrick Kane (1-1—2) notched a goal and an assist to extend his career-high point streak to 19 games (11-20—31).

Per Elias, Kane’s point streak is the longest by an American-born player in NHL history and is tied for the second-longest in Blackhawks franchise history.


Marcus Johansson and Justin Williams scored back-to-back power-play goals 2:18 apart in the second period to lead the Capitals to their fifth consecutive win and a 9-2-1 record in their last 12 contests.

Braden Holtby (31 saves), who leads the NHL with 15 wins, extended his personal winning streak to a career-high seven games (1.85 GAA, .935 SV%, 1 SO). Elias says Holtby has matched the longest personal winning streak by an NHL goaltender this season, set by Montreal's Carey Price in his first seven games of the campaign (October 7-24). Holtby is also the first Capitals netminder to win at least seven consecutive decisions in one season since Jose Theodore did so on two occasions in 2009-10.
