November 7th, 2018 — News and Notes

Today is Wednesday, November 7th, and these are your news and notes…

There were nine league contests last night.

 

The Maple Leafs won their 10th game of the season out of 15 games for the 11th time in franchise history and the first since the 2013-14 season when they won 10 games out of the first 14.

 

 

Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist won his 436th career game and is now one win shy of tying Jacques Plante for seventh place all time.

 

 

Max Domi would score all three of Montreal’s goals in the contest to give him a goal-scoring streak of four contests and has 16 points on the season, including nine goals thus far.

 

 

TXHT and Last Word on Sports Armand Kilsvitch has his recap of the contest here.

 

 

The Columbus Blue Jackets have defeated the Dallas Stars for the sixth consecutive time.

 

 

Ottawa’s Mark Stone had a five-point game to lift Ottawa to the win over New Jersey. Stone is the fifth player in Senators’ history to have multiple five point games in the regular season.

 

 

Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson would score yet again and continues to lead all rookies in goals and points but would still fall to the Detroit Red Wings in a shootout.

 

Pettersson has scored 10 goals in 10 games played. He is the fifth player outside of the League’s first season to score 10+ goals through their first 10 NHL games.

 

 

In Tampa Bay’s Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness night, Tampa Bay would get the win in the contest over the Edmonton Oilers and move to a record of 11-3-1 and into first place in the NHL standings.

 

 

St. Louis F Ryan O’Reilly registered a hat-trick and would extend his point streak to eight games in the contest against the Hurricanes. O’Reilly also had an eight-game point streak during the 2015-16 season.

 

 

In this match-up, Ilya Kovalchuk had one goal and two assists in the first game for new Kings head coach, Willie Desjardins.

 

 

 

San Jose’s Joe Thornton played in his 1499th NHL contest last night and tied Mike Modano for 19th all time.

 

 

With his next game, Thornton will become the first overall pick in the history of the NHL Draft to reach the 1500 game milestone.

 

As a note from the contests yesterday, this would only be the fifth time in League history where the home teams swept a schedule of 9+ games.
