PAIR OF GOLDEN STATE TEAMS EXTEND WIN STREAKS IN OVERTIME
The Kings and Ducks extended their win streaks to six and five games, respectively, despite each of the Golden State teams’ opponents rallying with a third-period comeback to force overtime: 

* Alex Iafallo scored six seconds into the third period and Jake Evans pulled the Canadiens even, before Adrian Kempe netted the winner in overtime to help the Kings earn their sixth consecutive victory – the longest active win streak in the NHL. Iafallo extended his point streak to seven games (5-5—10), marking the longest by a Kings player this season.

Troy Terry (1-1—2) factored on two of Anaheim’s three goals – including scoring the winner in overtime – and extended his point streak to 12 games as the Ducks earned their fifth consecutive win. The last time Anaheim recorded a longer run was in 2015-16, when they set the franchise record with 11 straight victories (from Feb. 13 to March 5, 2016). 

DEVILS SCORE SEVEN TO TAME PANTHERS ON HULU, ESPN+

* The two clubs combined for a game-high four goals in the second period, including three in a span of 1:58 from Florida’s Aleksander BarkovOwen Tippett and New Jersey’s Andreas Johnsson. It marked the third time two teams have combined for three goals in the opening two minutes of a period this season (also 1:41 – OTT at CHI on Nov. 1 and 1:33 – SEA at ARI on Nov. 6).

Teams outside the playoff picture last season continued their strong starts in 2021-22, as the Red Wings (7-5-2, 16 points) defeated the Oilers and the Sharks (7-4-1, 15 points) put out the Flames.

Sam Gagner (0-1—1) found the score sheet in his 900th career game as the Red Wings halted the Oilers’ regular-season road winning streak at 10 games (dating to 2020-21) and picked up their third consecutive victory. Detroit sits second in the Atlantic Division, behind Florida (10-2-1, 21 points).
