JAGR SCORES FIRST GOAL WITH FLAMES, GAUDREAU COLLECTS THREE POINTS
Jaromir Jagr (1-1—2) scored his first goal with the Flames and Johnny Gaudreau (2-1—3) extended his point streak to six games (4-6—10) in Calgary’s 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings in their fourth win in their past five outings.
Jagr recorded multiple points in a game for the fourth time since celebrating his 45th birthday on Feb. 15. Only two other players in NHL history have recorded at least one multi-point game at age 45 or older – Gordie Howe (6) and Chris Chelios (1). Howe is the only player to register a three-point game at age 45 or older (Nov. 2, 1979 vs. TOR).
Jagr, who has 766-1,152—1,918 in 1,718 career games, notched an assist on Mark Jankowski’s first NHL goal during the first period. It marked the 12th time that Jagr has set up a teammate’s first career goal – he last did so while with the Rangers, setting up Dan Girardi’s first career goal on Oct. 18, 2007.
Gaudreau, who led the Flames in assists and points in each of the past two seasons, has registered at least one point in 13 of 16 games in 2017-18 and ranks third in League scoring with 6-16—22 overall.
STAMKOS, KUCHEROV CONTINUE TO FIND THE SCORE SHEET
Nikita Kucherov (1-2—3) and Steven Stamkos (1-1—2) each registered multiple points for the second straight night to power the League-leading Lightning (13-2-2, 28 points) to their third straight win.
Kucherov leads all players with 16 goals and ranks second with 29 points this season (17 GP). In 2016-17, when Kucherov established career highs in goals (40) and points (85), he hit the 29-point mark on Dec. 3 (25 GP) and tallied his 16th goal on Jan. 7 (34 GP).
EMOTIONAL BOYLE SCORES FIRST GOAL IN DEVILS UNIFORM
Brian Boyle, who signed with the Devils in July and was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia in September, notched his first goal of the season. Click the photo below to watch the goal and hear from Boyle.
“I’ve never cried after a goal before. . . I’m not playing tonight and I’m not here if not for my wife and my family and these guys in here. I try to separate it, but it’s a little bit bigger tonight than probably ever.” – Brian Boyle
DUCHENE TO MAKE SENATORS DEBUT VS. AVALANCHE IN GLOBAL SERIES OPENER
Newly acquired forward Matt Duchene will make his Senators debut against his former team, the Avalanche, when the two clubs meet in the first half of a doubleheader in the 2017 SAP NHL Global Series at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. Duchene, who was acquired by Ottawa from Colorado on Sunday in a deal that also involved Nashville, collected 178-250—428 in 568 career games with the Avalanche from 2009-17.
Friday’s contest will be the 27th regular-season NHL game contested outside of North America and first since 2011. The Senators have played in two such games, both at the Ericsson Globe, while this trip marks a franchise-first for the Avalanche.
Ottawa went 1-0-1 against the Penguins in 2008-09 in Stockholm, posting a 4-3 overtime loss in the first contest before rebounding for a 3-1 victory the next day.
Did You Know? Pavel Bure scored the game-winning goal in the first ever regular-season NHL game contested outside North America, a 3-2 victory for the Canucks against the Ducks on Oct. 3, 1997 at Yoyogi Arena in Tokyo, Japan.
MAPLE LEAFS HOST BRUINS ON HOCKEY HALL OF FAME NIGHT
The Maple Leafs, who hold a 6-3-0 record on home ice, host the Bruins in the annual Hockey Hall of Fame game at Air Canada Centre. Former NHL forwards Teemu Selanne, Dave Andreychuk, Mark Recchi and Paul Kariya and fellow 2017 inductees Danielle Goyette, Jeremy Jacobs and Clare Drake will participate in a pre-game ceremony as part of the four-day celebration to continue through Monday.
