NHL Morning Skate for Saturday, January 13, 2018: Flames continue hot streak to 6 games; Capitals halt ‘Canes streak by scoring in final seconds; McDavid has passes 100 career road points

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FRIDAY’S RESULTS
Home Team in Caps

Vancouver 5, COLUMBUS 2
Calgary 4, FLORIDA 2
Washington 4, CAROLINA 3
CHICAGO 2, Winnipeg 1
Edmonton 4, ARIZONA 2

FLAMES EXTEND WIN STREAK TO SIX GAMES
Mikael Backlund
(1-2—3) factored on three of four goals and David Rittich made a career-high 41 saves to help the Flames (24-16-4, 52 points) extend their season-high win streak to six games, the longest active run in the NHL. Calgary posted two winning streaks of at least six games in 2016-17 – they went 6-0-0 from Nov. 30 – Dec. 10 and 10-0-0 from Feb. 21 – March 13.

 

* Rittich, who made his NHL debut on April 8, 2017 at SJS, improved to 4-1-1 in seven career appearances (2.09 GAA, .930 SV%).

Johnny Gaudreau (1-0—1) and Sean Monahan (1-1—2) each scored to extend their point streaks to six games. Gaudreau, who has 2-9—11 on his point streak, moved into a five-way tie for second in League scoring. Monahan, meanwhile, posted multiple points for the fourth time on his six-game run (4-6—10).

 

CAPITALS SCORE IN FINAL SECONDS TO HALT HURRICANES’ STREAK
Brett Connolly tied the game at 16:52 of the third period and Jay Beagle scored the go-ahead goal with 1.3 seconds remaining in regulation to power the Metropolitan Division-leading Capitals (28-14-3, 59 points) to a 6-1-0 record in their last seven contests. Washington halted Carolina’s home point streak at seven games (6-0-1), one night after the Hurricanes ended the Capitals’ 10-game home win streak.

* Elias notes that Beagle (59:58) scored the latest go-ahead goal in regulation in franchise history, eclipsing the mark set by Alexander Semin in a 3-2 win on Nov. 6, 2008 vs. CAR (59:49). It was the fifth go-ahead goal in the final minute of regulation this season.

Alex Ovechkin (1-2—3) scored his League-leading 28th goal of the season and added two helpers to move within two of reaching the 500-assist milestone. He has collected 36-49—85 in 72 career games vs. CAR (1.18 P/GP).

McDAVID ECLIPSES 100 CAREER ROAD POINTS
Oilers captain Connor McDavid collected two assists to eclipse 100 career road points (31-70—101). McDavid (85 GP) required the 10th-fewest games in NHL history (tied) to record 100 career road points.

 

* McDavid (61-137—198) also moved within two points of reaching the 200-point milestone. The reigning Art Ross Trophy winner leads all skaters with 150 points since the beginning of the 2016-17 season (45-105—150), five more than the next-closest player in that span (Nikita Kucherov: 67-78—145).

KAMPF SCORES FIRST CAREER GOAL WHILE CELEBRATING 23RD BIRTHDAY
Blackhawks forward David Kampf (1-1—2) scored the first goal of his NHL career (9 GP) while celebrating his 23rd birthday to help Chicago snap Winnipeg’s point streak at seven games (6-0-1). Kampf became the 15th player in NHL history to score his first career goal while celebrating a birthday.

SNEAK PEEK AT SATURDAY’S ACTION

 

 

14 CLUBS RETURN TO ICE ON NINE-GAME SATURDAY
A nine-game Saturday features 14 clubs returning from their five-day break:

* The action begins with four teams returning for a pair of games at 1:00 p.m. ET – the Islanders (21-18-4, 46 points) and Rangers (22-15-5, 49 points) face off at Madison Square Garden, while the Red Wings (17-17-7, 41 points) and Penguins (22-19-3, 47 points) clash at PPG Paints Arena. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby (15-28—43) – one of 34 NHL players with 40+ points in 2017-18 – has collected at least three assists/points in each of his past two outings and sits three goals shy of 400 for his career.

* The Bruins (23-10-7, 53 points) and Canadiens (18-20-4, 40 points) resume play and renew their 94-year-old rivalry, with Boston looking to extend its point streak to 12 games (8-0-3 in 11 GP). The Bruins’ point streak is the second-longest in the NHL this season (VGK: 12-0-1 from Dec. 3 – Jan. 2) and the longest by the club since a 16-game run in 2013-14 (15-0-1).

* With three 40-point players carrying the offense, the Flyers (19-15-8, 46 points) head to New Jersey to face the Devils (22-11-8, 52 points), who own a seven-game home point streak (6-0-1). Only 13 points separate the eight teams in the Metropolitan Division.

* Led by forward Nathan MacKinnon (18-34—52), the streaking Avalanche (22-16-3, 47 points) – winners of five straight games – enter the second half of their season only one point shy of their total from 2016-17 (22-56-4, 48 points in 82 GP). Colorado resumes its schedule in Dallas, where the Stars (24-16-3, 51 points) continue a six-game homestand (4-1-0 in 5 GP) that has featured back-to-back three-point efforts by forward Alexander Radulov (16-22—38).

* The Western Conference-leading Golden Knights (29-10-2, 59 points) return to the ice against the Oilers (18-23-3, 39 points) aiming to become just the fifth team in NHL history to record 30 wins in its inaugural season. Vegas also puts its 10-game home point streak on the line (9-0-1), tied for the second-longest such run in the League in 2017-18 (WPG – 11 GP; NYI and WSH – 10 GP).

* The Ducks (19-15-9, 47 points) and Kings (24-13-5, 53 points) return to the ice for their third of five meetings this season (LAK: 2-0-0; ANA: 0-0-2). Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf has recorded 4-20—24 in 19 appearances this season and sits two assists shy of 600 for his career.

* Finally, the Sharks (21-13-6, 48 points) look to extend their home point streak to nine games (6-0-2 in 8 GP) when they resume their schedule against the Coyotes (10-27-6, 26 points). After collecting just seven assists in his first 19 games of the season, defenseman Brent Burns has compiled 7-16—23 since Nov. 22 (21 GP) to move into the top 10 in defensive scoring.

NHL Morning Skate for Friday, January 12, 2018: Flames top scoring line powers win; ‘Canes top Capitals winning streak

THURSDAY’S RESULTS
Home Team in Caps

BUFFALO 3, Columbus 1
Carolina 3, WASHINGTON 1
Calgary 5, TAMPA BAY 1

TOP LINE POWERS FLAMES TO FIFTH STRAIGHT VICTORY
The trio of Johnny Gaudreau (1-1—2), Micheal Ferland (1-1—2) and Sean Monahan (0-1—1) led the offense yet again as the Flames (23-16-4, 50 points) earned their fifth consecutive victory to leapfrog the idle Sharks (21-13-6, 48 points) into third place in the Pacific Division.

 

* Gaudreau collected multiple points for the 16th time this season to extend his point streak to five games (1-9—10) and become the ninth player to eclipse the 50-point mark this season (14-37—51 in 43 GP). He has led Calgary in scoring in each of the past two seasons.

* Ferland tallied at least two points for the fourth consecutive game and has registered 4-4—8 during Calgary’s five-game streak. A fifth-round pick (133rd overall) in the 2010 NHL Draft, Ferland has collected 19-9—28 in 42 games this season after posting 21-27—48 in his first 173 career outings.

Mike Smith (33 saves), who has backstopped the Flames in each contest during their five-game run, has won five consecutive games for the third time in his career – in 2011-12 he went 11-0-0 from Feb. 4-28 and 5-0-0 from March 29 – April 7.

HURRICANES HALT CAPITALS’ WIN STREAKS
Jordan Staal
Victor Rask and Sebastian Aho each scored once to help the Hurricanes (20-15-8, 48 points) halt the Capitals’ home and overall win streaks at 10 and five games, respectively, and move into the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

* The Hurricanes and Capitals meet again tonight at PNC Arena as Carolina aims to extend its own home point streak to eight contests (6-0-1 in 7 GP).

EICHEL, ULLMARK POWER SABRES ON HOME ICE
Jack Eichel notched 1-1—2 and Linus Ullmark posted a career-high 44 saves to help the Sabres snap a five-game skid (0-4-1). Eichel, who set a career high with 24-33—57 in 61 GP last season, paces the Sabres with 18-23—41 in 44 GP in 2017-18. He has eclipsed 40 points in each of his first three NHL seasons (also 2015-16: 24-32—56 in 81 GP).

QUICK CLICKS

Red Sox happy with affiliates Pawtucket & Lowell; extend agreements through 2020

 

The Boston Red Sox have extended their Player Development Contracts (PDC) with the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox and short-season Single-A Lowell Spinners for an additional two years through the 2020 season, the clubs announced today.

Red Sox Vice President of Player Development Ben Crockett, PawSox Executive Vice President/General Manager Dan Rea, and Spinners owner Dave Heller made the announcement.

The Red Sox and PawSox, whose partnership began in 1973, will celebrate their 46th season of affiliation in 2018. It is the second longest partnership in Triple-A behind only the Kansas City Royals and Omaha Storm Chasers of the Pacific Coast League (since 1969). Over that time, Pawtucket has finished in first place in its International League division seven times and advanced to the postseason 16 times, winning the Governors’ Cup title in 1973, 1984, 2012, and 2014. The PawSox play their home games at McCoy Stadium, which was erected in 1942 and is the oldest ballpark in all of Triple-A.

The partnership between the Red Sox and Spinners began in 1996, with 2018 marking their 23rd season of affiliation. Competing in the New York-Penn League, Lowell has finished atop the Stedler Division three times (2008-09, ’16), winning a franchise-record 47 games in 2016 with the league’s third-best record (47-29, .618). Since 1998, the Spinners have played their home games at Edward LeLacheur Park, located on the banks of the Merrimack River near the UMass-Lowell campus.

Excluding rehab assignments, 30 players on the Red Sox’ 40-man roster are Pawtucket alumni, including Dustin Pedroia (2005-06), Xander Bogaerts (2013), and Matt Barnes (2013-15). Sixteen members of the 40-man roster have played for Lowell, including Hanley Ramirez (2002), Jackie Bradley Jr. (2011), Mookie Betts (2012), and Andrew Benintendi (2015).

Pawtucket and Lowell are two of Boston’s six domestic minor league affiliates, joining Double-A Portland (Eastern League), High-A Salem (Carolina League), Single-A Greenville (South Atlantic League), and the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Red Sox (Gulf Coast League).
