NHL – Regular Season
Carolina and Colorado aim for 5th in a row
In a six-game Monday, the Avalanche (8-5-1, 17 points) and Hurricanes (14-2-0, 28 points) will seek their fifth straight victory by facing the Senators respectively ( 4-10-1, 9 points) and the Sharks (8-8-1, 17 points).
- Nazem Kadri has scored points in each of his last eight games (4-11-15), the third longest streak in the NHL behind Connor McDavid (17 GP with EDM) and Troy Terry (16 GP with ANA), which will also be in action on Monday.
- The Avalanche are averaging 6.0 goals per game in their four-game winning streak, and outscored their opponents by a 24-8 margin. If Colorado scores six on Monday, it would be the first time the franchise has scored 30 or more goals in five games (including shootout tie-breakers) since 1995/1996 (30 goals in five games Dec. 5-13, 1995) .
- The Hurricanes will look to win their fifth straight game and improve their record to 4-0-0 in the first four outings of their six-game trip. Carolina comes on Monday with an 8-1-0 road record and may become the sixth team in NHL history to win nine of its first ten road games since the start of the season.
The Jets and the Blues organize their night against cancer
Two Central Division clubs will host their cancer awareness night when the Jets (9-4-4, 22 points) and Blues (9-6-2, 20 points) respectively host the Golden Knights (11 -7-0, 22 points) and the Penguins (7-6-4, 18 points) in town.
- Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck is 6-2-4 in 2021/22, including a 6-0-4 streak in his last 10 games since October 19. If Hellebuyck avoids another regulation loss on Monday, the 2019/20 Vézina Trophy winner can establish the longest point streak by a goaltender in Jets / Thrashers history.
- Ryan O’Reilly has recorded 7-9-16 in 17 career games against the Golden Knights. Since his inaugural season in 2017/18, only three players have scored more points than the Blues captain in direct games against Vegas: Anze Kopitar (11-15-26 in 22 GP), Connor McDavid (7-10-17 in 11 GP) and Alex Iafallo (4-13-17 in 22 GP).
