December 2, 2015

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


Drew Doughty notched the tying goal at 6:54 of the third period and Anze Kopitar scored at 2:02 of overtime to lift the Kings to a 3-0-1 record in their past four games overall as well as their fourth consecutive victory at STAPLES Center.

Kopitar picked up his sixth career overtime goal (all w/ LAK) to surpass Ziggy Palffy and Luc Robitaille for the most such goals in franchise history.


Max Pacioretty snapped a 1-1 tie with 2:09 remaining in regulation to help the Canadiens extend their point streak to six contests (5-0-1).

At 19-4-3 (41 points), the Canadiens moved two points ahead of the Stars (19-5-1, 39 points) – who lost in a shootout – for first place in the NHL standings. Elias says that Montreal’s 41 points are its most through the first 26 games of a season since 1976-77 (also 19-4-3).

Pacioretty extended his point streak to five games (3-3—6) and paces the team with 13-12—25 overall this season, including three game-winning goals.

Pacioretty, who leads the NHL with 24 game-winning goals since 2013-14, also registered the decisive tally in Montreal’s prior three games vs. CBJ: Jan. 14, Feb. 21 and Feb. 26.


Ryan Suter registered the tiebreaking goal with 7:56 remaining in regulation to lift the Wild over the Blackhawks in their final meeting before the 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series on Sunday, Feb. 21, at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane scored the team’s lone goal to stretch his point streak to a career-high 20 games (12-20—32), extending his record for the longest such run by a U.S.-born player in NHL history.

Per Elias, Kane’s point streak is the second-longest by any player in Blackhawks history, one game shy of the franchise record set by Bobby Hull from Dec. 5, 1971 – Jan. 23, 1972 (23-12—35 in 21 GP).
