NHL / The « Morning Skate », the main facts of the night
NHL – The « Morning Skate » on Sunday November 7
- The Panthers increased their record to 10-0-1 while ending the Hurricanes’ nine-game winning streak earlier in the season.
- Moritz Seider scored the winning goal in overtime, scoring the first goal of his NHL career and allowing the Red Wings to make a comeback of several goals.
The Panthers score early and often
In an unprecedented match between two booming clubs to start the season, Anthony Duclair (2-2-4) was involved in three of Florida’s four goals in the first period. The Panthers (10-0-1, 21 points) became the first team to beat the Hurricanes (9-1-0, 18 points) in 2021/22.
- Florida, one of the longest-ever early-season scoring streak in franchise history (12 GP in 1996/97: 8-0-4), recorded the longest such streak in franchise history (12 GP in 1996/97: 8-0-4). NHL since Chicago opened the 2012/13 campaign with a score of 21-0-3.
- Duclair, who had three of his four power play points, scored 1-2-3 in the first period and is one point behind the most points by a Panthers player in a single period, behind Noel Acciari (3 -1-4 on December 20, 2019; 2nd period) and Olli Jokinen (2-2-4 on March 17, 2007; 3rd period).
- Spencer Knight repelled 30 of 32 shots to foil Carolina’s comeback attempt to bring her regular season record to 8-0-1 in nine appearances (2.43 GAA, .918 SV%).
Ascent to Buffalo
The trio of Tyler Bertuzzi (2-2-4), Lucas Raymond (0-3-3) and Moritz Seider (1-0-1) played a key role in the Red Wings’ comeback on Saturday.
- Bertuzzi’s two goals in the third period in the space of 1:30 allowed Seider (1-9-10 in 12 GP) to pave the way for extra time. He became the second player – and the first defenseman – in franchise history to score his first career goal in overtime, joining Mud Bruneteau (December 14, 1935).
- Raymond, with his second outing over three points this season (also 3-1-4 on Oct. 24 at CHI), has become the fifth teenager to post a three-pass game with the Red Wings. He joined Steve Yzerman (4x; last: February 17, 1985), Alex Delvecchio (0-3-3 on October 16, 1952), Gordie Howe (0-4-4 on December 17, 1947) and Harry Watson (0-3- 3 December 12, 1942).
Impressive Wild victory
Kirill Kaprizov (1-1-2) contributed two goals and Ryan Hartman scored the tying goal at 19:57 of the third period. Minnesota managed a multi-goal comeback for the second time this season (also Oct. 19 against WPG) – the biggest of any team.
- Kaprizov recorded his 60th and 61st points in the regular season (29-32-61 in 65 GP). He needed the fewest number of games to reach 60 points among the players who started with the Wild (all with MIN), shattering the previous mark set by Marian Gaborik (93 GP).
- Hartman’s goal is the final deciding goal of 2021-22 and the second in the final 10 seconds of a game. The other was scored by Torey Krug of St. Louis (59:51 November 3).
- Notable victories for the Maple Leafs (5-0-0 in the last 5 GP), the Flames (7-0-3 in the last 10 GP) and the Islanders (5-0-2 in the last 7 GP)
- Mitchell Marner scored 1-3-4 and has been involved in 10 of Toronto’s last 12 goals since giving the Maple Leafs a 5-3 lead on Oct. 30 (3-7-10).
- Jacob Markstrom, who recorded his fourth shutout in 2021-22, became the fifth goaltender in the expanding NHL era (since 1967-68) to claim four of his first five wins in a season and the first since Pascal Leclaire in 2007-08 (with the CBJ).
- Lou Lamoriello of the Islanders became the third general manager in NHL history to achieve 1,500 wins (regular season and playoffs combined).
