November 7, 2015

Making his return from an appendectomy, Ryan Getzlaf collected three assists to lead the Ducks to their third consecutive victory overall – as well as their fourth straight win at Honda Center following a 0-2-1 start at home.

Getzlaf, who had 0-1—1 in his first eight appearances of the season, registered his first three-assist/point game since Dec. 7, 2014 at WPG (0-3—3).

Corey Perry also picked up three assists, his first such performance since Dec. 21, 2013 at NYI (0-3—3).

Via Elias, the Ducks improved to 14-3-0 all-time when both Getzlaf and Perry register three or more points in the same game.

Ducks defenseman Josh Manson (33 GP) recorded his first NHL goal in the win.


Down 1-0 midway through the second period, the Stars scored four unanswered goals – including three in the final frame – to pick up their fifth victory in their past six outings.

At 11-3-0 (22 points), Elias says that the Stars have equaled their best 14-game start to a season in franchise history; they also recorded 22 points in their opening 14 games in 1971-72 (10-2-2), 2006-07 (11-3-0) and 2011-12 (11-3-0).

The Stars also improved to 6-2-0 in their first eight games on the road; their 12 points as visitors are tied for first in the NHL, with the Canadiens (6-2-0) and Lightning (5-3-2).

Patrick Sharp notched the tiebreaking goal with 8:45 remaining in regulation. He has 5-2—7 in his last six outings after collecting 0-3—3 in his first eight games with the team.

Tyler Seguin posted one assist to extend his point streak to seven games (4-7—11). He leads the NHL with 13 assists and 21 points through 14 contests this season.


A pair of Metropolitan Division clubs – the Penguins and Rangers – extended their respective streaks with wins as visitors:

Phil Kessel scored the tiebreaking goal with 10:15 remaining in regulation to power the Penguins to their sixth consecutive victory and ninth win in their past 10 outings following a 0-3-0 start to the season. Each of Kessel’s past three goals has stood as the decisive tally, also Oct. 24 at NSH (OT) and Oct. 28 at WSH. With the victory, the Penguins improved to 8-0-2 in their last 10 meetings with the Oilers dating to Dec. 5, 2007 (EDM: 2-8-0).

Derek Stepan and Oscar Lindberg scored 21 seconds apart to help the Rangers overcome a 1-0 deficit and extend their point streak to eight games (6-0-2), including four consecutive wins. Lindberg registered his seventh goal of the season, tops among rookies; the Rangers improved to 6-0-0 when he scores and 6-0-2 when he collects at least one point.


Dion Phaneuf tied the game with 1:02 remaining in regulation, but Jakub Kindl scored 2:17 into overtime to propel the Red Wings past the Maple Leafs in the Hockey Hall of Fame Game. Kindl registered his third career game-winning goal (260 GP) and first in overtime. The others came one month apart during the 2012-13 season: Feb. 7 at STL and March 7 vs. EDM.

The Devils scored four consecutive goals, including three in the opening period, to defeat the Blackhawks and improve to 7-2-1 in their last 10 contests following a 0-3-0 start to the season. Three players – Kyle Palmieri, Lee Stempniak and Travis Zajac – posted 1-1—2, while Cory Schneider made 27 saves in his 10th consecutive start.


Longtime Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller returns to Buffalo for the first time when the Canucks visit the Sabres at First Niagara Center. Miller, a fifth-round pick (138th overall) by Buffalo in the 1999 NHL Draft, posted a franchise-record 284 wins in 540 regular-season appearances with the club (2.60 GAA, .916 SV%, 28 SO) before a February 2014 trade to St. Louis (and then signing with Vancouver). He also backstopped the Sabres to consecutive trips to the Eastern Conference Final (2006-07), earning 25 wins in 47 playoff outings with the team (2.46 GAA, .917 SV%, 3 SO). Miller has faced Buffalo once since his departure last year, making 20 saves in a 5-2 Vancouver win on Jan. 30 at Rogers Arena.

“I’ve been away a lot longer than I thought I’d be, just last year getting interrupted by injury,” Miller told NHL.com. “I thought I’d be back sooner, so it’s a little delayed, but it’s still a little bit emotional. But it is fun. It’s fun to see how things have changed. Maybe staying away is little bit of a shock to the system, to come down here and see so much has changed. I’m really excited for the city in that regard. There’s some really nice things happening. People seem to be responding really well to that. I’m hearing lots of good things. It’s nice to come back here and know everything’s going well.”


Defenseman Barret Jackman faces his former team for the first time when the Predators welcome the Blues to Bridgestone Arena. Jackman, the 17th overall selection by St. Louis in the 1999 NHL Draft, played his first 13 seasons with the Blues, totaling 28-153—181 in 803 outings prior to signing with the Predators as a free agent. He also won the Calder Memorial Trophy with St. Louis in 2002-03 and served as an alternate captain for the club for the past nine seasons.

“I’ve already gotten text messages from a bunch of them saying they’re looking forward to it and we’ll say hi, but I’ll try and run them through the boards and play them tough,” Jackman quipped to Predators.NHL.com. “I think it’s going to be exciting. I’ve played these guys hard in practice for many years and the way my game is, it’s not going to change at all. Just the history that I have with a lot of the guys in that locker room, it’s going to be exciting to play against them and size myself up in a game against them.”
