  • Ken Hitchcock, who ranks fourth in NHL history with 733 career victories, became the second head coach in Blues history to win 200 games, joining Quenneville (307). Elias adds that Hitchcock, who posted 277 victories w/ DAL, became the sixth head coach in NHL history to record 200 wins with multiple teams.
  • Max Domi (3-0—3) and Brock Nelson (3-1—4) both recorded their first career hat tricks to power the Coyotes and Islanders, respectively, to wins.
  • Steven Stamkos scored twice to reach the 20-goal milestone for the eighth time in as many NHL seasons and propel the Lightning to their third consecutive victory. Via Elias, Stamkos became the third player in franchise history to record eight straight 20-goal seasons, joining Vincent Lecavalier (12; 1999-11) and Martin St. Louis (9; 2002-11).
