News and Notes: October 7th, 2018

 

These are your news and notes for Sunday, October 7th, 2018.

There were twelve contests last night in the NHL.

  • The Chicago Blackhawks became third team in NHL history to start the season with consecutive overtime victories. The Blackhawks follow the 1984-85 Toronto Maple Leafs and 2009-10 Montreal Canadiens. Jonathan Toews completed a hat trick to secure a Chicago 5-4 win over the St. Louis Blues in overtime at Enterprise Center. Toews’ hat trick was also the fifth of his career.
    • The New Jersey Devils defeated the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 in the NHL Global Series at Gothenberg, Sweden. This was New Jersey’s first neutral site victory since March 27, 1994 when they defeated the Quebec Nordiques at Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. New Jersey’s Kyle Palmieri became the third player to score the fastest goal in an NHL game outside of North America.
    • Martin Brodeur was on hand for the ceremonial puck drop that included New Jersey’s Marcus Johansson and Edmonton’s Adam Larsson, both of whom were born in Sweden.
    • St. Louis Blues Alexander Steen appeared in his 900th NHL game. His father, Thomas Steen, played in 950 NHL games. The Steens joined only two other father/son duos for more than 900 NHL games played.
