NHL Daily Power Play Recap 2/14/16: Ducks defeat Chicago

February 14, 2016

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


Ryan Getzlaf (1-1—2) scored at 2:16 of overtime to lift the Ducks to a 15-4-2 record in their past 21 games, including an 8-1-1 clip in their last 10. Getzlaf notched his eighth career overtime goal (all w/ ANA) to extend his franchise record, two more than both Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne (6). He also recorded his fourth consecutive multi-point game (2-6—8), the third such run of his career and first such streak since March 4-10, 2013 (3-6—9 in 4 GP).

With the win, the Ducks (27-19-8, 62 points) inched closer to the idle Kings (33-18-3, 69 points) atop the Pacific Division.

Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook (2-0—2) recorded his third career multi-goal game and first since April 20, 2013 vs. PHX (2-0—2). He also reached the 10-goal milestone for the first time.


The Los Angeles Kings have placed forward Marian Gaborik on injured reserve, Kings GM Dean Lombardi announced.

The 6-1, 205-pound Gaborik appeared in 54 games this season with the Kings, recording 22 points (12-10=22) and 20 penalty minutes before leaving Los Angeles' recent game against the New York Rangers with a lower-body injury.

Selected in the first-round (3rd overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Gaborik has appeared in 933 career NHL games with Minnesota, New York Rangers Columbus, and Los Angeles, collecting 773 points (386-387=773), a plus-97 and 450 penalty minutes.


The Stars scored four second-period goals – including two by Tyler Seguin – and held off the League-leading Capitals en route to their third straight win and sixth victory in their last seven games.

At 36-15-5 (77 points), the Stars leapfrogged the Blackhawks (36-18-5, 77 points) – who lost in overtime – for the top spot in the Central Division and Western Conference. Dallas holds three games in hand, but Chicago owns the ROW tiebreaker (CHI: 35, DAL: 34). These teams have two matchups remaining in their five-game season series: March 11 at CHI and March 22 at DAL (DAL: 2-1-0, CHI: 1-2-0).

Seguin registered his League-leading sixth multi-goal game of 2015-16 to reach the 30-goal milestone for the third time in as many campaigns with the Stars (30-32—62). Elias notes that he became the first player in Stars/North Stars history to score 30 or more goals in each of his first three seasons with the team.

Seguin also recorded his third consecutive multi-point performance (2-4—6), the third such run of his career and second such streak this season (also Oct. 15-20: 4-4—8 in 3 GP). He ranks third in the NHL in goals (30) and fourth in points (62) in 2015-16.

Jamie Benn added his 29th goal of the season for the Stars, who earned their ninth straight win over the Capitals dating to March 8, 2010 (WSH: 0-8-1).


Brad Marchand (SHG) scored for the sixth consecutive game (7-2—9) to establish a career high and power the Bruins to their sixth straight road victory as well as a 9-3-1 record in their past 13 contests overall.

At 30-19-6 (66 points), the Bruins leapfrogged the idle Red Wings (28-18-9, 65 points) and Lightning (30-20-4, 64 points) for second place in the Atlantic Division. They face Detroit at Joe Louis Arena in a Sunday matinee (3:30 p.m. ET, NBC, TVAS).

Marchand has scored in 11 of his last 12 games, totaling 12-2—14 in that span. Elias says that he became the first NHL player to score goals in 11 of 12 games since Ducks forward Teemu Selanne did so Feb. 10 – March 5, 1999 (G in 12 of 13 GP: 14-7—21). The last Bruins player to achieve that feat: Cam Neely from Nov. 11, 1993 – Jan. 2, 1994 (G in 12 of 13 GP: 16-6—22).

Marchand shares fifth place in the NHL with 27 goals this season (50 GP), one shy of matching his career high established in 2011-12 (76 GP).

Marchand recorded his 19th career shorthanded goal (and fourth this season), the most such tallies since he entered the NHL in 2009-10.

Bruins forward Loui Eriksson (GWG) recorded his 200th NHL goal.  Bruins head coach Claude Julien earned his 500th NHL win (500-306-109).
