And let us also acknowledge how that differs from Wednesday night’s overtime match-up against Steven Stamkos, Tyler Johnson and Victor Hedman, none of whom have won a championship. At the start of three-on-three, the eight players on the ice had combined to win 18 Stanley Cups. Well […]

The view from Chicago

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES Mark Lazerus: Kings rally from 2-0 third-period deficit to stun Hawks in OT “The Hawks had been 42-0-0 when leading after two periods, dating all the way back to the start of the last season. The last team they coughed up such a lead and lost? Game 7 of the Western Conference final in 2014, against these same Kings.” Mark Lazerus: Patrick Kane sets American record with 19-game point streak “Kane scored a power-play goal in the first period Saturday night in Los Angeles to extend his streak to 19 games — breaking the record for American-born players.” […]

November 28 postgame quotes: Gaborik, Ehrhoff

Gaborik, on whether he was proud of the team’s game-long effort: The first period wasn’t as great as we wanted to play, but we picked it up in the second.

We did that with some chances. Jeff cut it […]
