WEDNESDAY’S RESULTS

Home Team in Caps
TORONTO 5, NY Islanders 0

DETROIT 2, San Jose 1 (SO)

WASHINGTON 5, Philadelphia 3

YOUTH PROPELS MAPLE LEAFS TO THIRD STRAIGHT WIN

Five different players found the back of the net, including first career NHL goals from defensemen Travis Dermott (1-1—2) and Justin Holl (1-0—1), to power the Maple Leafs (29-18-5, 63 points) to their third straight win and fourth victory in five contests.

 

* Per Elias, Dermott (9 GP) and Holl (1 GP) became just the fourth pair of defensemen on the same team since 1991-92 to register first career NHL goals in the same game. The others: Ottawa’s Shane Hnidy and Karel Rachunek on Jan. 16, 2001, Edmonton’s Adam Bennett and Ilya Byakinon Nov. 6, 1993 and Detroit’s Nicklas Lidstrom and Vladimir Konstantinov on Oct. 17, 1991.

 

* Four of Toronto’s five goals were scored by players age 21 or younger (Kasperi Kapanen: 21; Auston Matthews: 20; Mitchell Marner: 20; and Dermott: 21). There are only three other times in franchise history where four different players 21 or younger scored in the same game – all of which occurred during the 1943-44 season.
STEPHENSON SPARKS CAPITALS RALLY
After falling behind 2-0 in the first period, Chandler Stephenson (2-0—2) scored twice to start a run of five consecutive Capitals goals to help the club rally to their 30th win of the season.

 

* Stephenson, who had scored two goals in 49 career games entering the contest, netted two in 47 seconds to become the 10th player in 2017-18 to score two goals in under a minute and the first Capitals player to do so since Alex Ovechkin scored a pair of goals 53 seconds apart on Jan. 28, 2014.
* Washington, who sits atop the Metropolitan Division standings, rallied from a multi-goal deficit to win for a League-leading sixth time this season.

 

 

STREAKS OF NOTE
Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner, Flyers forward Travis Konecny and Red Wings netminder Petr Mrazek all continued impressive strings of success Wednesday:

* Gardiner, who led all Maple Leafs defensemen in scoring last season with 9-34—43 in 82 GP, collected an assist to extend his assist/point streak to a career high six contests (0-10—10).

* Konecny scored for the fifth consecutive game to extend his point streak to six contests (5-2—7). He became the first Flyers player to score in five straight games since Wayne Simmonds from Mar. 26 – Apr. 3, 2012. The last Flyers player to score in six consecutive games: Scott Hartnell from Dec. 2 – 13, 2011.
* Mrazek made 30 saves through regulation and overtime before turning aside four Sharks in the shootout to help the Red Wings (20-21-8, 48 points) snap a five-game skid at Little Caesars Arena (0-4-1). Mrazek improved to 4-1-1 in his last five decisions, posting a 1.88 GAA, .936 SV% and two shutouts over that span.
