NHL Short Notes

* It was a night to remember for 37-year-old Joe Pavelski, who became the oldest NHL player with five points in a game since Teemu Selanne over 10 years ago.

Brad Marchand scored the fifth hat trick of his NHL career as the Bruins continued their winning ways since the calendar flipped to 2022. 

* Thursday is set to feature the return of Tuukka Rask on ESPN, Lou Lamoriello approaching Glen Sather on an all-time NHL list and three teams looking to reach 25 wins on the season.

 

PAVELSKI POSTS FIVE-POINT PERFORMANCE; STARS’ HOME SUCCESS CONTINUES 
Stars forward Joe Pavelski (37 years, 185 days) posted a career-high five points (2-3—5) and became the oldest NHLer with as many in a game since March 28, 2011, when Hockey Hall of Fame member Teemu Selanne scored a hat trick and had two assists at 40 years and 268 days old. 
 
* Dallas extended its home winning streak to five games and improved to 13-1-0 (26 points) at American Airlines Center dating to Nov. 13, 2021. The Stars’ 13 home wins over that span represent the most in the NHL. 



MARCHAND SCORES HAT TRICK TO RECORD THIRD STRAIGHT MULTI-GOAL GAME 
Bruins forward Brad Marchand tallied twice in a span of 15 seconds and added the 33rd shorthanded marker of his NHL career to complete the hat trick, which was his third consecutive game with multiple goals dating to Jan. 8 (7-1—8). 
 
* Boston (20-11-2, 42 points), which occupies the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference, improved to 6-1-0 (12 points) since Jan. 1 and has outscored opponents by a 33-16 margin over that span. 



ROOKIE VEJMELKA’S 45-SAVE VICTORY FEATURED IN #NHLSTATS: LIVE UPDATES 
Wednesday’s edition of #NHLStats: Live Updates features several more notes from the three games, including Arizona goaltender Karel Vejmelka turning aside 45 of 46 shots to foil Toronto. He became the first rookie netminder in Coyotes/Jets franchise history to record multiple wins with at least 45 saves (also Nov. 29, 2021).




REFLECTING ON WILLIE O'REE'S IMPACT AHEAD OF JERSEY RETIREMENT 
Lightning teammates Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Mathieu Joseph penned an ESPN piece on Willie O'Ree's lasting impact ahead of O’Ree’s No. 22 being retired by the Bruins on Tuesday, Jan. 18. In addition to being the NHL's first Black player, O’Ree’s legacy includes decades of tireless work through the League’s ‘Hockey is for Everyone’ youth hockey programs that have positively impacted more than 130,000 kids since 1998. The programs serve boys and girls across North America by giving them access to hockey, often for free, and teaches life skills as well as the values of hockey — perseverance, teamwork, and dedication.

RASK SET TO MAKE SEASON DEBUT ON ESPN THURSDAY 
Longtime Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask, who officially signed a one-year contract with the team on Jan. 11, is expected to appear in his first game this season when Boston hosts Philadelphia at TD Garden in one of 11 contests Thursday. 
 



* Rask has played in parts of 14 NHL seasons with the Bruins and is the franchise’s all-time leader in both wins (306) and games played (560) by a goaltender, while also stockpiling a Stanley Cup (2011), Vezina Trophy (2013-14) and William M. Jennings Trophy (2019-20) over the course of his tenure in the Spoked-B. 



LAMORIELLO CAN CLIMB WINS LIST AS ISLANDERS FACE HIS FORMER CLUB 
Lou Lamoriello of the Islanders enters Thursday with 1,505 career wins as an NHL general manager (regular season & playoffs) and needs one to match Glen Sather (1,506) for the second highest combined total in League history. Lamoriello earned 1,229 of his victories as an executive with New Jersey, which New York defeated by a 4-2 margin on Dec. 11, 2021 to kickstart its active five-game home point streak (4-0-1). 
 



SEVERAL STREAKS ON THE LINE AS TRIO OF TEAMS VIE FOR 25TH VICTORY 
Ondrej Palat, Brady Skjei and Tanner Jeannot can extend their respective goal streak as the Lightning (24-9-5, 53 points), Hurricanes (24-7-2, 50 points) and Predators (24-11-2, 50 points) look to become the first NHL teams to reach the 25-win mark this season. 
 
* Palat potted at least one tally in each of Tampa Bay’s last four games (5-16), which marks the longest goal streak of his NHL career. Palat’s five goals in 2022 trail only Bruins forward Brad Marchand (8-4—12 in 7 GP), Penguins forward Bryan Rust (7-4—11 in 3 GP) and Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat (6-0—6 in 6 GP) for the most in the NHL. 
 
Skjei has scored in each of Carolina’s last three contests (4-2—6). That’s the longest active goal streak among NHL defensemen and one game back of the lengthiest in franchise history by a Hurricanes/Whalers blueliner, achieved by Dougie Hamilton from Oct. 6-12, 2019 (4-2—6 in 4 GP). 
 
* Jeannot, who leads all rookies with 12 tallies this season (12-11—23 in 37 GP), owns an active four-game home goal streak dating to Dec. 4, 2021 (5-1—6). His run is the longest home goal streak by a rookie in franchise history.
