FLAMES PUSH WIN STREAK TO NINE GAMES, ONE SHY OF FRANCHISE RECORD
Dougie Hamilton (0-3—3) assisted on all three goals and Brian Elliott (31 saves) registered his second straight shutout as the Flames pushed their win and point streaks to nine and 11 games (10-0-1), respectively.

* Elias notes that Calgary’s nine-game run is one shy of the longest single-season win streak in franchise history; the Atlanta Flames won 10 consecutive games from Oct. 14 – Nov. 3, 1978.

* At 38-26-4 (80 points), the Flames moved ahead of the idle Ducks (35-23-10, 80 points) for second place in the Pacific Division.

* Elliott earned his eighth consecutive win and improved to 12-1-1 in his last 14 decisions dating to Jan. 26 (1.86 GAA, .936 SV%, 2 SO).

Four different skaters scored to guide the Senators to their sixth straight victory, their longest win streak since a seven-game run from March 12-23, 2015.

Matt Murray (27 saves) registered his fourth shutout of the season to backstop the Penguins to their fifth consecutive win. Elias notes that Murray climbed within two shutouts of the single-season franchise record for most by a rookie goaltender, set by Les Binkley (6 in 1967-68). The Penguins moved within a point of the League-leading Capitals (44-16-7, 95 points).

Drew Stafford scored the go-ahead goal with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation as the Bruins improved to 9-2-0 in their last 11 home games, reinforcing their hold on third place in the Atlantic Division. Stafford has collected 2-2—4 in four games since being acquired by the Bruins on March 1.

Juuse Saros made 25 saves to help the Predators snap a four-game slide (0-2-2), maintaining their grip on third place in the Central Division. Viktor Arvidsson scored his fourth shorthanded goal of 2016-17 to match the franchise record for most in a season, set by Greg Johnson (2003-04, 2005-06) and Steve Sullivan (2005-06).

* Toronto scored a pair of game-tying markers before Morgan Reilly tallied the first overtime goal of his NHL career to guide the Maple Leafs to their third consecutive win. The Maple Leafs claimed sole possession of the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

* Tampa Bay overcame a 2-0 deficit and Ondrej Palat scored the go-ahead goal at 17:37 of the third period as the Lightning pushed their home point streak to five contests (4-0-1). Nikita Kucherov (1-0—1) has collected 10-8—18 in his last nine games and established single-season career highs for goals and points with 31-36—67 overall (60 GP).

FLAMES LOOK TO TIE FRANCHISE RECORD WITH 10TH CONSECUTIVE VICTORY
The Flames (38-26-4, 80 points) look to secure their 10th consecutive victory and tie the longest single-season win streak in franchise history – a mark set in 1978-79 as the Atlanta Flames – when they host the Penguins (43-16-8, 94 points), who would move into sole possession of first place in the NHL standings with a win. Calgary would join Columbus (16-0-0), Minnesota (12-0-0) and Philadelphia (10-0-0) as the only teams to register a win streak of at least 10 games in 2016-17. Should they do so, Elias notes that it would mark the first season in NHL history to feature four win streaks of 10 games or more – 2015-16 is the only other campaign with three such runs.

WILD CARD RACES TAKE OVER MONDAY NIGHT SLATE
Several teams in the thick of Wild Card races aim to secure crucial points tonight:

* The Kings (33-28-6, 72 points) look to make up ground on the Blues (35-27-5, 75 points) – who have won four straight games – in their final meeting of the season (Oct. 29: 1-0 LAK and Jan. 12: 5-1 STL). St. Louis occupies the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference and leads the ROW tiebreaker against Los Angeles (STL: 34, LAK: 31).

* The Islanders (32-24-11, 75 points) return from a franchise-long nine-game road trip (5-3-1) to host the Hurricanes (27-27-11, 65 points) at Barclays Center, where they have not lost in regulation since Jan. 11 (9-0-2 since). New York is the first team outside the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, one point behind the Maple Leafs (31-22-14, 76 points).

* The Lightning (32-26-9, 73 points) visit the Rangers (44-23-2, 90 points) for their second meeting in a week, with New York posting a 1-0 overtime win last Monday on the strength of a 38-save shutout by Antti Raanta. Tampa Bay has registered points in 13 of its past 15 games dating to Feb. 4 (10-2-3).

* The Flyers (31-28-8, 70 points) aim to halt a two-game skid and stay in the playoff race when they host the Blue Jackets (43-18-6, 92 points). Columbus, meanwhile, needs one win and two points to establish single-season franchise records.

CAPTAINS HELP CLUBS STRENGTHEN POSITIONS
The Sharks, Ducks, Rangers and Canadiens continued their pursuit of the playoffs with help from their captains:

* Joe Pavelski (2-0—2) scored twice, including his seventh decisive marker of the season, to help the Sharks (41-20-7, 89 points) maintain a seven-point grip of first place in the Pacific Division. Pavelski matched a single-season franchise record with 11 game-winning goals in 2015-16 and paces the NHL with 18 such tallies over the last two campaigns.

Ryan Getzlaf (1-2—3) assisted on Rickard Rakell’s game-winning goal to lead the Ducks (36-23-10, 82 points) past the League-leading Capitals (44-17-7, 95 points) and help Randy Carlyle earn his 400th career win as an NHL head coach. Corey Perry (2-1—3) and Ryan Kesler (1-2—3) also collected three points apiece as Anaheim regained sole possession of second place in the Pacific Division.

* Ryan McDonagh (2-0—2) registered the second multi-goal game of his NHL career to lead the Rangers (44-23-2, 90 points) to their League-leading 25th road win of 2016-17 in their final regular-season visit to Joe Louis Arena. New York strengthened its hold on the first Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference and climbed within two points of the Blue Jackets (43-18-6, 92 points) for third place in the Metropolitan Division, where the top four teams are separated by only five points.

Max Pacioretty (2-0—2) tallied twice, including the go-ahead goal, as the Canadiens (39-22-8, 86 points) scored four unanswered goals in the final 6:27 of regulation to improve to 7-1-0 in their last eight games. Pacioretty ranks second in the NHL with 34 game-winners since the start of the 2013-14 season, including seven such tallies in 2016-17. Paul Byron (2-1—3) sparked the comeback win to propel Montreal back into the top spot in the Atlantic Division.

Brent Burns collected three assists to help the Pacific Division-leading Sharks (40-19-7, 87 points) reach the 40-win mark for the fourth consecutive season and improve to 7-1-2 in their last 10 games.

* Burns ranks tied for second among all skaters with 27-43—70 this season, five points shy of his career high and single-season franchise record for a defenseman (27-48—75 in 2015-16). Elias notes that Burns became the first defenseman to reach the 70-point mark in consecutive seasons since Mike Green in 2008-09 and 2009-10 (w/ WSH).

KARLSSON GUIDES SENATORS TO FIFTH CONSECUTIVE VICTORY

The tight race for Wild Card spots continued in the Eastern Conference, where positions 7-12 are separated by seven points:

At 32-23-11 (75 points), the Islanders maintained their grip on the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

* Four different skaters scored as the Maple Leafs extended their home point streak to five contests (3-0-2). William Nylander tallied his ninth power-play goal of the season, tops among all rookies. Elias notes that he tied the Maple Leafs record for most power-play goals in a season by a rookie, set by Dan Daoust and Walt Poddubny in 1982-83 and matched by Alexander Steen in 2005-06. At 30-22-14 (74 points), the Maple Leafs remained a point back of the Islanders.

* Nikita Kucherov (2-1—3) factored on three of four goals to power the Lightning to a 9-2-3 record in their last 14 games. Kucherov (30-36—66) has recorded 9-8—17 in his last eight games and reached the 30-goal mark for the second straight season. At 31-26-9 (71 points), the Lightning remained three points behind the Maple Leafs; Tampa Bay and Toronto will square off two more times this season (March 16 and April 6).
