NHL Morning Skate for Wednesday, November 13, 2019

November 13, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THREE HARD LAPS

* The Panthers rallied to stun the Bruins at TD Garden, posting the 19th four-goal, third-period comeback win in NHL history and first-ever by the franchise.

* Eighteen-year-old Kaapo Kakko scored twice, including the game winner, to become the 13th different 18-year-old skater in NHL history to score a regular-season overtime goal.
* Twenty-one-year-old Cale Makar found the score sheet yet again, becoming the eighth rookie defenseman in NHL history to score the game-winning goal in consecutive games.

PANTHERS RALLY TO FIRST-EVER FOUR-GOAL COMEBACK WIN

With the Panthers trailing 4-0 at the start of the third period, Aaron EkbladFrank VatranoMike Hoffman and Keith Yandle (1-2—3) scored four consecutive goals and Hoffman netted the decisive marker in the shootout as Florida overcame a four-goal deficit to win for the first time in franchise history.

* Tuesday’s contest marked the 19th instance in NHL history a team overcame a four-goal, third-period deficit to win in any fashion and first since the Wild on Jan. 9, 2010. The Panthers are just the ninth road team to accomplish the feat.

* Florida joined Washington (Oct. 25) and Winnipeg (Oct. 4) as the third team to record a comeback win of four or more goals this season. The 2019-20 campaign is just the second in NHL history to feature three four-goal comeback wins, regardless of period, through the first 280 games. The other: 1991-92 (3).

 

Jonathan Huberdeau (0-3—3) has found the score sheet in all but three games in 2019-20. His three-point performance Tuesday boosted his career totals to 134-249—383, moving the eight-year veteran into a tie with Stephen Weiss (249) for the most assists in franchise history.

* Additionally, Huberdeau’s three third-period assists matched the franchise record for most in a single period, achieved on eight occasions – with Scott Mellanby (Jan. 13, 1999 vs. TOR) the only other to do so in the final frame.
KAKKO JOINS ELITE COMPANY WITH OT WINNER

Kaapo Kakko scored twice – including the overtime winner – to lift New York to its fifth win in seven contests. He became the youngest player in franchise history to score in overtime, while also recording the club’s first-ever multi-goal game by an 18 year old.

* The 2019 second-overall pick (6-2—8), who trails only Buffalo’s Victor Olofsson (7-5—12) in rookie goals this season, became the 13th different 18-year-old skater in NHL history to score a regular-season overtime goal.

* Kakko (6-2—8), who scored one of five New York goals against Florida Sunday, joined Manny Malholtra (Nov. 7-10, 1998 and Feb. 22-26, 1999) as the second 18-year-old in Rangers history to score in consecutive team games.

Tony DeAngelo collected an assist on Kakko’s game-opening goal to extend his point streak to five contests (1-5—6). After posting an eight-game run in 2018-19 (0-9—9 in 8 GP from Feb. 12-27), the 24-year-old defenseman joined Brian Leetch (6 GP in 2000-01 and 6 GP 2001-02) as just the second Rangers defenseman in the last 20 years to register a point in five or more games in consecutive seasons.

MAKAR JOINS RARE COMPANY WITH SECOND WINNER IN AS MANY GAMES

Cale Makar netted the game-winning goal for the second time in as many games, while Nathan MacKinnon (2-2—4) and 22-year-old netminder Adam Werner (40 saves) also played pivotal roles as the Avalanche blanked the Jets to collect their third straight win.

* Makar, who scored twice in Colorado’s win Sunday, became the first rookie defenseman in Avalanche/Nordiques history to record the game-winning goal in consecutive games. In fact, only seven other rookie blueliners in NHL history have accomplished the feat.

* The 21-year-old defenseman leads all rookies in scoring this season (5-13—18), highlighted by a three-game goal streak dating to Nov. 7 (4-2—6). Makar, who joined Flyers rookie defenseman Philippe Myers with goals in three straight games, has found the score sheet in 14 of his first 18 career regular-season games.

* Twenty-two-year-old Werner, who posted a 2.88 GAA and .908 SV% in nine games with the Colorado Eagles of the American Hockey League this season, came in relief of Pavel Francouz and became the ninth goaltender since 1955-56 to post a 40-save performance in his NHL debut.

COYOTES SNAP ANOTHER WIN STREAK
After Conor Garland netted the shootout winner Monday to halt the Capitals’ six-game win streak, he played the role of hero again in Tuesday’s shootout as Arizona brought St. Louis’s seven-game win streak to an end.

* The 2019-20 season marks the second time in Coyotes/Jets history in which the club snapped an opponents’ win streaks of six or more games multiple times in the same season. The other instance occurred while the franchise was located in Winnipeg: 1984-85 (EDM: 8 GP, LAK: 7 GP).

MARCHAND, DRAISAITL EXTEND RESPECTIVE POINT STREAKS
Brad Marchand (0-1—1) extended his home point streak to 10 games and became the fourth player this season to reach the 30-point mark (11-19—30), while Leon Draisaitl (1-1—2) recorded the third 10-game point streak of his career.

* Marchand became the seventh different player in Bruins history to record a home point streak of 10 games to start the season and first since Bobby Orr in 1974-75 – which also stands as the longest such run in franchise history.

* The 21-year-old defenseman leads all rookies in scoring this season (5-13—18), highlighted by a three-game goal streak dating to Nov. 7 (4-2—6). Makar, who joined Flyers rookie defenseman Philippe Myers with goals in three straight games, has found the score sheet in 14 of his first 18 career regular-season games.

* Twenty-two-year-old Werner, who posted a 2.88 GAA and .908 SV% in nine games with the Colorado Eagles of the American Hockey League this season, came in relief of Pavel Francouz and became the ninth goaltender since 1955-56 to post a 40-save performance in his NHL debut.

COYOTES SNAP ANOTHER WIN STREAK
After Conor Garland netted the shootout winner Monday to halt the Capitals’ six-game win streak, he played the role of hero again in Tuesday’s shootout as Arizona brought St. Louis’s seven-game win streak to an end.

* The 2019-20 season marks the second time in Coyotes/Jets history in which the club snapped an opponents’ win streaks of six or more games multiple times in the same season. The other instance occurred while the franchise was located in Winnipeg: 1984-85 (EDM: 8 GP, LAK: 7 GP).

MARCHAND, DRAISAITL EXTEND RESPECTIVE POINT STREAKS
Brad Marchand (0-1—1) extended his home point streak to 10 games and became the fourth player this season to reach the 30-point mark (11-19—30), while Leon Draisaitl (1-1—2) recorded the third 10-game point streak of his career.

* Marchand became the seventh different player in Bruins history to record a home point streak of 10 games to start the season and first since Bobby Orr in 1974-75 – which also stands as the longest such run in franchise history.

* This marks the sixth straight season with at least one player posting a season-opening home point streak of at least 10 games. In 2018-19, both Nicklas Backstrom (16 GP from Oct. 3 – Dec. 15, 2018 w/ WSH) and Sebastian Aho (10 GP from Oct. 4 – Nov. 17, 2018 w/ CAR) achieved the feat.

* The NHL has featured four or more players each record at least 30 points through the League’s first 280 games of a season for the third time in the last 25 years. Four players accomplished the feat in 1996-97, the last such instance: Peter Forsberg (11-24—35), Joe Sakic (10-25—35), Mats Sundin (13-18—31) and Saku Koivu (10-20—30).

* Draisaitl extended his point streak to 10 games (9-11—20) to become the sixth Oilers player to record three or more double-digit point streaks (also:14 GP in 2018-2019, 11 GP in 2016-17). Wayne Gretzky leads the franchise with 21.

PREVIEW OF TODAY’S ACTION

CAPITALS, ISLANDERS LOOK TO EXTEND POINT STREAKS TO 13 GAMES
The top two teams in the Metropolitan Division will look to extend their individual point streaks to 13 games when the Islanders (11-0-1 since Oct. 12) host John Tavares and the Maple Leafs, while the Capitals (10-0-2 since Oct. 16) visit the Flyers – who enter Wednesday on a four-game winning streak. New York and Washington’s 12-game stretches are the longest team point streaks of 2019-20.

* The Islanders can record a point streak of 13 or more games for the fifth time in franchise history and first since a 15-game run – all wins – in 1981-82 (15-0-0). New York also owns an active home point streak of eight games (7-0-1) and have earned a League-leading eight wins as hosts overall this season (8-2-1, 17 points).

* Wednesday is set to mark the third all-time meeting at NYCB Live/Nassau Coliseum between John Tavares and his former team (also Feb. 28, 2019 and April 1, 2019). Tavares was held off the score sheet in the first game but found the back of the net in the second, with the Islanders becoming the 31st franchise he has scored at least one goal against.

* The Capitals’ current 12-game run is three shy of the franchise record set in 2009-10 (14-0-1 from Jan. 13 – Feb. 10, 2010). Washington has had three different point streaks of 12 or more games over the past 10 seasons (since 2009-10), one of five clubs with as many over that span joining Anaheim (4x), Boston (4x), Pittsburgh (3x) and Columbus (3x).
