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).

Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship getting stronger with pipeline for future coaches

Diversity team personnel fellowship program continues in 32nd year

NEW YORK (November 12, 2019) – As part of its continuing efforts to strengthen the NFL coaching pipeline, the NFL today announced that 179 coaches participated in the 2019 BILL WALSH NFL DIVERSITY COACHING FELLOWSHIP. Of the total, 53 Bill Walsh fellows are former NFL players.

The Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship, named after late Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh, provides NFL coaching experience to talented minority college coaches, high school coaches and former players. Walsh introduced the concept to the league in 1987 when he brought a group of minority coaches into his San Francisco 49ers’ training camp.

“The Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship is a tremendous opportunity for rising coaches to hone their skills by experiencing first-hand the methods and philosophies of NFL coaching staffs,” said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations TROY VINCENT. “This fellowship is key to the future of the game as it identifies the next generation talented coaches.”

Since inception, nearly 2,000 minority coaches have participated in the program with support from all 32 clubs during offseason workouts, minicamps, and training camp. Some fellows were extended through the 2019 season such as NFL Legend HINES WARD who in September joined the New York Jets staff as a full-time offensive assistant. Other clubs who extended fellowships through the season include Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, and the Washington Redskins.

Out of 86 colleges and universities represented, 17 participants are coaches with HBCU football programs and 29 were from FBS institutions. High school coaches made up 19. This year’s program participants also included four women - CALLIE BROWNSON (Atlanta and Buffalo), JENNIFER KING (Carolina), SAMANTHA MULLET (Baltimore), and TRACY ZIMMER (Atlanta). The Miami Dolphins participated with 15 Bill Walsh fellows, the most of any team in 2019.

“Our organization was excited to provide opportunities and access throughout all levels of our football operation through the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship,” said Miami Dolphins General Manager CHRIS GRIER. “Our Head Coach Brian Flores has long said there’s a great number of smart, talented leaders across the league and he is all in for whatever he can do to help others gain exposure at this level. I have seen firsthand how this fellowship can changes lives and we appreciate the full support and the commitment from Stephen Ross every step of the way.”

The Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship is just one NFL program aimed at developing a diverse pipeline for club personnel. In 2019, 17 participants completed the NUNN-WOOTEN SCOUTING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM. Nunn-Wooten, launched in January 2015, exposes former NFL players, former college football players, and current college football employees to a career in scouting. The program gives participants a unique glimpse into player personnel by introducing them to various areas related to both college and professional scouting.

The 2020 Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship and Nunn-Wooten Scouting Fellowship applications will open in Spring 2020.

The conclusion of the NFL 100 Greatest series airs on Friday, November 15 at 8:00 PM ET with the remaining top teams in NFL history revealed in back-to-back episodes.

​​

  • The “Greatest Show on Turf,” the 1999 St. Louis Rams

  • The 2009 New Orleans Saints who played for the City of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina
  • The 1985 Chicago Bears, the only team to drop a music video about winning the Super Bowl before playoffs, and then go on to shutout both opponents in the divisional and championship round of playoffs
