NHL Morning Skate: Stanley Cup Playoffs Edition for Thursday, August 13, 2020

THREE HARD LAPS

* Patrice Bergeron scored the winner for the Bruins in the second game in as many days to require multiple overtimes.

Quinn Hughes and Carter Hart continued to shine for the Canucks and Flyers, respectively.

* The Avalanche blanked the Coyotes, while the Islanders rallied for another multi-goal comeback win in the postseason over the Capitals.

BERGERON SCORES IN DOUBLE OT AS BRUINS TAKE 1-0 SERIES LEAD
Patrice Bergeron (1-1—2) scored 1:13 into double overtime to lift the Bruins to a win in Game 1 – the second Eastern Conference game in as many days to require multiple overtimes after it was rescheduled to Wednesday due to Tuesday’s five-overtime thriller between the Lightning and Blue Jackets.

* Boston improved to 7-0-0 in its last seven games against Carolina dating to March 5, 2019 (including regular season and playoffs; CAR: 0-6-1). Carolina will have a chance to rebound quickly, as Game 2 is scheduled for today at 8 p.m. ET.

* Bergeron scored his fourth career postseason overtime goal to break a tie with Mel Hill and Terry O’Reilly (both w/ 3) for the most in franchise history. Two of Bergeron’s overtime markers have come in double overtime (also Game 3 of the 2013 CF vs. PIT), while two of Hill’s three markers were also scored in multiple overtime frames (3OT in Game 1 and Game 7 of the 1939 SF vs. NYR).

* Bergeron improved his career playoff point total to 41-65—106 (140 GP) to move into sole possession of second all-time in franchise history behind Ray Bourque (36-125—161 in 180 GP). Bergeron is one point ahead of teammate David Krejci, who scored Wednesday to improve to 37-68—105 (136 GP).

HUGHES, HART CONTINUE TO SHINE SINCE MAKING POSTSEASON DEBUTS
Canucks defenseman Quinn Hughes and Flyers goaltender Carter Hart, who each made their postseason debut earlier this month, helped their teams earn Game 1 wins on Wednesday:

* Hughes assisted on one of the two goals scored by Bo Horvat as Vancouver took a 1-0 lead in its First Round series versus the defending champions. The Canucks improved to 4-1 since the start of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, including four consecutive wins in which they have outscored their opponents by a combined 17-9 margin.

* Hughes has collected seven points through the first five postseason games of his NHL career (1-6—7). He became the eighth defenseman in NHL history – and the fourth rookie among that cohort – with seven or more points through his first five career postseason games.

* Hart made 27 saves as Philadelphia edged Montreal to take a 1-0 lead in its First Round series. The Flyers, who improved to 4-0 since the start of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, won each of their first four or more games in a postseason for the sixth time in franchise history and first since 1985 (6-0). The other four instances were in 1974 (6-0), 1975 (7-0), 1978 (4-0) and 1980 (6-0).

* Hart, who turns 22 today, improved to 3-0 through his first three career postseason appearances (1.00 GAA, .966 SV%). He became the fourth goaltender in franchise history to earn wins in each of his first three or more career postseason appearances, joining Pete Peeters in 1980 (5-0), Robert Moore in 1979 (3-0) and Brian Boucher in 2000 (3-0). Peeters’ run is tied for the third-longest such win streak in NHL history.

AVALANCHE, ISLANDERS SCORE FAST GOALS IN GAME 1 WINS
The Avalanche and Islanders earned Game 1 wins via fast goal-scoring outbursts:

* Colorado scored the only three goals of the contest in a span of 1:23 during the third period – including two just 10 seconds apart – to blank Arizona and take a 1-0 lead in its First Round series.

* The Avalanche, who scored two goals in a span of 10 seconds or less during a postseason game for the second time in franchise history and three in a span of 83 seconds or less in a playoff contest for the third time in club history, outshot the Coyotes by a 40-14 margin. It marked the first time in which the franchise held an opponent to fewer than 15 shots on goal in a postseason game.

Nazem Kadri (2-3—5 in 4 GP), Nathan MacKinnon (1-4—5 in 4 GP) and Mikko Rantanen (1-4—5 in 4 GP) have all found the score sheet in each of Colorado’s four contests since the start of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. They became the first players to record at least one point in each of the Avalanche’s first four or more games from the start of a postseason since 2004, when Peter Forsberg (4-6—10 in 7 GP), Joe Sakic (4-4—8 in 6 GP) and Rob Blake (0-5—5 in 4 GP) combined for the feat.

* New York scored four unanswered goals in a span of 12:58 to erase a 2-0 deficit and take a 1-0 lead in its First Round series.

Anthony Beauvillier scored the Islanders’ fourth goal of the game and has found the score sheet in each of New York’s five contests since the start of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers (4-2—6). He became the first player to record at least one point in each of the Islanders’ first five or more games from the start of a postseason since 1993, when Ray Ferraro (8-2—10 in 5 GP) and Patrick Flatley (1-6—7 in 5 GP) did so.

* New York overcame a multi-goal deficit to win a postseason contest for the sixth time in the past 30 years. Washington was its opponent in three of those games.

PREVIEW OF TODAY’S ACTION
The third day of the First Round features four Game 2s, beginning with the Lightning and Blue Jackets squaring off at 3 p.m. ET in a follow-up to their quintuple-overtime thriller in Game 1.

* Teams that take a 2-0 lead in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoffs series hold an all-time series record of 324-51 (86.4%).

ICYMI: NHL Morning Skate, Stanley Cup Playoffs Edition for Wednesday, August 12; Blue Jackets and Lightning play lengthiest game in league history

THREE HARD LAPS

* Brayden Point scored the quintuple-overtime winner to lift the Lightning past the Blue Jackets in the fourth-longest game in NHL history.

* Columbus goaltender Joonas Korpisalo made 85 saves – that’s correct, 85 saves – to eclipse Kelly Hrudey’s 73 from the “Easter Epic” for the highest single-game total since 1955-56.

* Due to the length of the Lightning-Blue Jackets contest, Game 1 between the Bruins and Hurricanes – originally scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET Tuesday – was rescheduled for 11:00 a.m. ET today.

LIGHTNING OUTLAST BLUE JACKETS IN FOURTH-LONGEST GAME IN NHL HISTORY
Brayden Point (2-0—2) scored the winner at 10:27 of the fifth overtime to lift the Lightning past the Blue Jackets, capping the lengthiest game ever contested by either franchise.

* Game 1 between Tampa Bay and Columbus, which featured 150:27 of total game time, was the fourth-longest in NHL history. It fell shy of Game 1 of the 1936 Semifinals between the Red Wings and Maroons (176:30), Game 5 of the 1933 Semifinals between the Maple Leafs and Bruins (164:46) and Game 4 of the 2000 Conference Semifinals between the Flyers and Penguins (152:01).

* Point, who ended the contest six hours and 13 minutes after it began, became the fifth player in NHL history to score the winner in a game which required five or more overtimes. He joined Red Wings forward Mud Bruneteau (Game 1 of 1936 SF), Maple Leafs forward Ken Doraty (Game 5 of 1933 SF), Flyers forward Keith Primeau (Game 4 of 2000 CSF) and Ducks forward Petr Sykora (Game 1 of 2003 CSF).

* Point, who potted his first career playoff overtime goal, became the third different player in franchise history to score the winner in a contest which required multiple overtimes. Nikita Kucherov (0-2—2), who assisted on the winner by Point, was the last Lightning player to do so before Tuesday.

TAMPA BAY, COLUMBUS COMBINE FOR SEVERAL FRANCHISE, NHL RECORDS
Per Records.NHL.com, the Lightning and Blue Jackets combined for several franchise and NHL benchmarks in both the player and team categories:

* Blue Jackets goaltender Joonas Korpisalo turned aside 85 of the Lightning’s 88 shots, which marked the NHL’s highest single-game save total since 1955-56. The previous mark of 73 was set by Islanders goaltender Kelly Hrudey in the “Easter Epic,” Game 7 of the 1987 Division Semifinals.

* Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy made 61 saves to establish a franchise record for most in a game, besting the previous mark of 60 set by Nikolai Khabibulin in Game 6 of the 2003 Conference Quarterfinals.

* Tampa Bay’s 88 shots on goal were the highest single-game total by a team, 12 more than Dallas’ 76 in Game 1 of the 2007 Conference Quarterfinals. The Lightning and Blue Jackets – who logged a franchise-record 63 shots on goal – combined for a total of 151 shots on goal.

Did You Know? Prior to shots on goal becoming an official NHL statistic, select games logged them – creating incomplete SOG data for those campaigns. One of those games happened to be the longest in NHL history, between the Montreal Maroons and Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the 1936 Semifinals when Red Wings goaltender Normie Smith was credited with 90 saves.

* Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones logged 65:06 of ice time, the NHL’s highest single-game total by a skater since 1997-98 when time on ice was officially tracked. He eclipsed the mark of 63:51 set by Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov in Game 1 of the 2003 Conference Semifinals. Overall, skaters from Game 1 between Tampa Bay and Columbus now account for three of the top eight single-game totals on record.

FLAMES, GOLDEN KNIGHTS WIN WESTERN CONFERENCE OPENERS
* The Stars set a franchise record with two goals in a span of nine seconds to erase a 2-0 deficit, but Rasmus Andersson scored five minutes later to put the Flames ahead en route to a Game 1 victory. Andersson and Dillon Dube (2-0—2) each scored in consecutive games for the first time in their NHL careers. Dube, 22, became the seventh different Flames player to post a multi-goal game in the playoffs before age 23; teammate Matthew Tkachuk (Game 1 of 2019 R1 vs. COL) is the only other to so in the last 26 years.


Reilly Smith collected 2-1—3 to help the Golden Knights take a 1-0 lead in their First Round series. Smith, who is Vegas’ all-time leader in postseason points with 33 (8-25—33 in 31 GP), has 6-6—12 in nine games versus Chicago since the start of the Golden Knights’ inaugural season in 2017-18 (1.33 P/GP). Robin Lehner made 19 saves against his former club and has earned wins in all six appearances since being acquired by Vegas at the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline (3-0-0 in regular season, 3-0 in playoffs).

PREVIEW OF TODAY’S ACTION
The second day of the First Round will get an early start, with the Bruins and Hurricanes squaring off at 11 a.m. ET after their game – which was previewed in the Aug. 11 Morning Skate – was rescheduled due to the five-overtime game.

* Teams that win Game 1 in a best-of-seven series hold an all-time series record of 478-219 (68.6%).
