October 31st, 2018 — News and Notes

These are your news and notes for Wednesday, October 31st, 2018.

 

There were 11 NHL contests last night…

  • Brayden Point had a five-point night for the Tampa Bay Lightning in Tampa Bay’s 8-3 rout of the New Jersey Devils.  In Point’s first five-point game of his career, Tampa scored eight goals for the second time this season and moved into sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division.

By scoring eight goals for the second time this season, this marked the third season in the last 25 to feature six or more times in which a team has registered at least eight goals in a game before play in October has come to an end.

  • In Arizona, the Coyotes would win their fourth consecutive game when five different players registered goals in the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 defeat of the Ottawa Senators.  The Coyotes have 27 goals in their last six games, making it the highest in that span. The Coyotes also registered 27 goals in a six-game span during the 2006-07 season.
  • David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron played critical roles in the Boston Bruins 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Boston is now 11-0-5 in their last 16 contests against the Hurricanes dating back to the 2013-14 season. Pastrnak has 16 points on the season and is now tied with Chicago’s Patrick Kane for 11 goals on the season.

Pastrnak joins Phil Esposito and Charlie Simmer as the only players in Bruins history to register double-digit goals in the month of October.

In this same contest, Carolina’s Sebastian Aho recorded an assist and joined Wayne Gretzky and Ken Linseman as the only players in League history to have a season-opening assist streak of 12 games.
