The Vegas Golden Knights ended the Edmonton Oilers’ 16-game home winning streak. Nathan MacKinnon came up empty on points for the New Jersey Devils. Jake Guentzel played his 500th NHL game.
Edmonton fails to match Pittsburgh’s record winning streak
Vegas Golden Knights vs Edmonton Oilers (3:1) goaltender Adin Hill made 30 saves in the win for the home team. He was instrumental in ending the Oilers’ 16-game winning streak.
Edmonton will not equal the NHL’s historic record from the 1992/93 season, which is still held by Pittsburgh with 17 straight wins. Goaltender Hill, who was drafted 76th overall by Arizona in 2015, is having a fantastic season this year. He has started 18 games this season. And 13 of them have been wins, plus he maintains a fantastic 1.88 goals per game average.
Although Edmonton took the lead early in the first period with a shorthanded goal after a pass from Draisatl to Connor McDavid, the hero of the game was Chandler Stephenson. He scored the winning goal at the start of the third period and encouraged William Karlsson to score into an empty cage at the end of the game.
Point streak by MacKinnon stood at 14 games
Canada’s Nathan MacKinnon failed to score for the first time in 14 games in the New Jersey Devil vs. Colorado Avalanche (5:3). This ended his 14-game point streak, during which he scored at least one point and recorded 29 points on 13 goals and 16 assists. This gave room for Nikita Kucherov, who has a game ahead of him on the ice with the Rangers, to rebound.
Czech goaltender Vitek Vaněček played for the Devils and contributed 35 saves to the victory. Including a breakaway by MacKinnon late in the third period (3:3), which was immediately punished by defenseman John Marino, who scored the game-winning goal at 57:43.
Guentzel played his 500th game
In the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Winnipeg Jets (3:0), home goaltender Tristan Jarry made 23 saves and no one from the visiting team passed the puck behind his back. He scored his 6th clean sheet of the season, making him the team leader in this statistic once again.
He is now ahead of Connor Ingram and Thatcher Demko, who have managed five games without a goal so far. Jarry recorded his 19th career clean sheet. His teammate Jake Guentzel celebrated a big anniversary in the game. He started his 500th regular season game. In addition, he also notched an assist on Bryan Rust’s third goal. And he has accumulated a respectable 464 points for 219 goals and 245 assists in the NHL.
