NHL Daily Power Play Recap 2/16/16: Ducks Rally for Win

February 16, 2016

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


The Ducks erased a trio of one-goal deficits – 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 – en route to their ninth win in their past 11 games (9-1-1) and a 16-4-2 record dating to Dec. 27.

At 28-19-8 (64 points), the Ducks leapfrogged the idle Sharks (29-20-5, 63 points) for second place in the Pacific Division. The team ranked 29th in the NHL with a 12-15-6 record (30 points) prior to this 22-game stretch.

Mike Santorelli (2-0—2) registered his fifth career multi-goal game and first since Dec. 8, 2013 vs. COL (2-1—3 w/ VAN). Cam Fowler (0-3—3) and Corey Perry (1-1—2) also contributed multiple points.

Frederik Andersen made 33 saves to improve to 8-0-1 in his last nine decisions following a 5-8-5 start to the season. He also boosted his record to 4-0-1 in six career regular-season appearances vs. CGY.

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf (0-1—1) extended his assist/point streak to five games (2-7—9).

Flames forwards Jiri Hudler (2-1—3), Johnny Gaudreau (1-2—3) and Sean Monahan (0-3—3) all recorded three points.


Patrick Kane registered 1-3—4 – his third four-point performance of the season and second against the Maple Leafs (also Jan. 15 at TOR: 3-1—4) – to help the Blackhawks snap a three-game skid (0-2-1).

The Blackhawks improved to 22-7-2 (46 points) this season at United Center. Their 22 home wins and 46 home points both pace the NHL.

Kane, who holds an 18-point lead in the Art Ross Trophy race (34-48—82 in 60 GP), reached the 80-point milestone for the second time. He is six points shy of matching his career high, established in 2009-10 (30-58—88 in 82 GP).

Kane, who equaled single-game highs in assists (8x) and points (4x), also recorded his 400th NHL assist (239-400—639 in 636 GP).

Andrew Shaw (1-2—3) and Duncan Keith (0-3—3) added three points apiece. Shaw posted his first such game since Nov. 25, 2013 at EDM (2-1—3), while Keith registered his second such performance of the season (also Dec. 29 at ARI: 1-2—3).


Mattias Janmark (1-1—2) scored at 3:49 of overtime to power the Stars to their fourth consecutive win and seventh victory in their last eight outings.

At 37-15-5 (79 points), the Stars maintained first place in the Central Division and Western Conference. Though they are tied with the Blackhawks (37-18-5, 79 points) in terms of points, Dallas holds three games in hand.

Janmark, who has collected 12-11—23 in his rookie season (57 GP), recorded his third career game-winning goal and first in overtime. Only three other rookies have scored overtime goals in 2015-16: Philadelphia’s Shayne Gostisbehere (3x), Chicago’s Artemi Panarin and Boston’s Frank Vatrano.

Jamie Benn (1-5—6) and Tyler Seguin (3-5—8) both collected one assist to extend their point streaks to five games. Benn ranks second in the NHL with 29-35—64 overall this season, while Seguin shares third place with 30-33—63.

NY ISLANDERS 4, Detroit 1
Anaheim 6, CALGARY 4
FLORIDA 2, Pittsburgh 1 (SO)

The Blues (32-17-9, 73 points), who rank third in the Central Division and Western Conference, attempt to gain ground when they welcome the first-place Stars (37-15-5, 79 points) to Scottrade Center in a national broadcast on NBCSN. This marks the fourth of five meetings in 2015-16 between these division rivals; St. Louis has won two of the first three matchups (STL: 2-1-0, DAL: 1-1-1), but Dallas posted a 3-0 victory in their most recent encounter on Dec. 27 at American Airlines Center.

The Blues have earned at least one point in 14 of their last 17 games overall (9-3-5), including four straight (3-0-1). The Stars, meanwhile, have won seven of their past eight outings, including four in a row.
