NHL Roundup Sunday Oct 8 2017

Home Team in Caps
NY RANGERS 2, Montreal 0


Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, who has recorded a hat trick in each of Washington’s first two games of the season (3-0—3 at OTT on Oct. 5 and 4-0—4 vs. MTL on Oct. 7), can become the first player in NHL history to record a hat trick in three consecutive games. Elias adds that Ovechkin’s seven goals in his team’s first two games of the campaign are just two shy of the record for most goals by an NHL player through his team’s first three games to start a season.

The NHL’s two highest scoring teams face off when the Blackhawks (2-0-0) visit the Maple Leafs (2-0-0). Both clubs have scored 15 goals in their first-two contests, with the Blackhawks setting a new franchise record for most goals through its first two games of a season. The Maple Leafs have tallied the most goals through the franchise’s first two games of a campaign since the Toronto Arenas recorded 20 in 1917-18 – the NHL’s inaugural season.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside all 34 shots he faced and Brady Skjei and Mika Zibanejad found the back of the net to lead the Rangers to the club’s first win of the season.  

* Lundqvist added to his franchise-record totals for wins (406) and shutouts (62). He sits one win back of Glenn Hall (407) for ninth on the NHL’s all-time list and his shutout moved him into sole possession of 16th all-time, four back of Patrick Roy (66).
