NHL Daily Power Play Recap 11/3/15: LA Kings' seven-game win streak ends

November 3, 2015

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


Down 2-1 after 40 minutes, the Blackhawks scored three unanswered goals – including the tiebreaker by Teuvo Teravainen with 10:58 remaining in regulation – to snap the Kings’ winning streak at seven games.

Patrick Kane registered 1-1—2, including the primary assist on Teravainen’s goal, to extend his point streak to seven games (4-6—10). He ranks third in the NHL with 7-9—16 this season (12 GP).

Artem Anisimov (1-1—2) and Jonathan Toews (1-1—2) also collected multiple points for the Blackhawks, who earned their sixth consecutive win at United Center following a season-opening loss versus the NY Rangers.

Toews and Kane have 13-16—29 and 9-19—28, respectively, in 28 career regular-season games versus the Kings. Toews and Kane also have 4-6—10 and 6-9—15, respectively, in 12 career playoff games versus the Kings.

Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin posted his ninth assist of the season, tops among rookies. Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook (0-1—1) stretched his point streak to six games (2-6—8), one shy of his career high set Nov. 14-28, 2014 (2-5—7 in 7 GP).


James Reimer made 43 saves and Joffrey Lupul (2-1—3) scored twice in the middle stanza to help the Maple Leafs snap a six-game skid (0-5-1).

Reimer made 19 of his 43 saves in the second period and also denied Valeri Nichushkin on a third-period penalty shot. Per Elias, he improved to 13-2-2 in 17 career regular-season games when making 40 or more saves.

Lupul, who paces the Maple Leafs with five goals this season, recorded his first multi-goal game since Dec. 2, 2014, also vs. DAL (2-0—2, including GWG). His last three-point performance was on Dec. 14, 2013 vs. CHI (2-2—4).


Knotted at 1-1 midway through regulation, the Canucks scored three unanswered goals to defeat the Flyers and extend their point streak to five contests (3-0-2).

Bo Horvat registered 1-1—2, including the game-winning goal – the second of his career (also Jan. 19 at FLA).

Ryan Miller turned aside 27 shots for the Canucks, who improved to 4-0-1 in their last five meetings with the Flyers dating to Oct. 15, 2013 (PHI: 1-4-0).

Canucks forward Jake Virtanen, the sixth overall selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, scored his first NHL goal (9 GP).

Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows played in his 700th NHL game, all with Vancouver, to become the eighth player in franchise history to reach the milestone. The others: Trevor Linden (1,140), Henrik Sedin (1,104), Daniel Sedin (1,073), Stan Smyl (896), Markus Naslund (884), Harold Snepsts (781) and Mattias Ohlund (770).

The Canucks paid tribute to Vancouver’s former NBA team, the Grizzlies, headlined by a ceremonial puck drop by former player Shareef Abdur-Rahim.


The Rangers and Capitals meet for the first time since the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs when they drop the puck at Madison Square Garden, the site of New York’s Game 7 overtime victory in the Second Round of last year’s postseason. These clubs have met in the playoffs in five of the past seven seasons, with the Rangers winning the past three series – all in seven games (also 2012 CSF and 2013 CQF).

Last year, New York overcame a 3-1 series deficit – clinched by Derek Stepan’s goal at 11:24 of overtime in Game 7 – to eliminate Washington and reach the Eastern Conference Final for the second straight season. In doing so, the Rangers became the first team in NHL history to successfully overcome a 3-1 series deficit in consecutive playoff seasons (also 2014 SR vs. PIT).

Last year’s thriller also marked the second seven-game series in Stanley Cup Playoffs history in which each game was decided by one goal.


Three of the top four individual scorers in the NHL face off when the Stars visit the Bruins at TD Garden. Dallas boasts the top two point-producers in the League, linemates Jamie Benn (10-8—18 in 12 GP) and Tyler Seguin (5-12—17 in 12 GP), while Boston is led by forward David Krejci, who ranks fourth overall with 7-8—15 (10 GP).

At 9-3-0 (18 points), the Stars sit in first place in the Central Division. The Bruins, meanwhile, are riding a seven-game point streak (6-0-1) following a 0-3-0 start to the season.


There have been 23 coach’s challenges through the first 171 games of the 2015-16 season.  Of those challenges, 17 calls have been upheld, while six have been overturned.
