NHL roundup: Devils match team mark with 13th straight win

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The New Jersey Devils tied the longest winning streak in franchise history Monday night, when five players scored a goal apiece in a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers in Newark, N.J.

Jesper Bratt, Dawson Mercer, Damon Severson, Tomas Tatar and Yegor Sharangovich scored for the Devils, whose 13-game winning streak matches the mark set by the 2000-01 team that later reached the Stanley Cup Finals. Vitek Vanecek stopped 28 shots for the victory.

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for the Oilers, who have alternated losses with wins in their last seven games. Stuart Skinner recorded 23 saves.

Nugent-Hopkins nearly tied the score 3-3 early in the third period, when his shot sailed just over the top of the net. The Devils doubled their lead on the next trip up the ice following an impressive play by Tatar, whose first shot was deflected by Skinner. Tatar caught the carom, put the puck down and beat Skinner at 7:07.

Bruins 5, Lighting 3

Patrice Bergeron recorded his 1,000th NHL point as Boston equaled its longest winning streak of the season at seven games, defeating host Tampa Bay.

Bergeron, 37, dished out the secondary assist on Brad Marchand’s second-period tally for his milestone. He became the fourth Bruin to do so — joining Ray Bourque (1,506), John Bucyk (1,339) and Phil Esposito (1,012). He is the eighth active NHL player to reach that milestone.

David Krejci had a goal and an assist, Nick Foligno, Charlie Coyle and David Pastrnak scored and Linus Ullmark had 32 saves for the Bruins. The Lightning’s Nicholas Paul scored twice and Rudolfs Balcers tallied while Pat Maroon had two assists and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 24 saves.

Islanders 3, Maple Leafs 2 (OT)

John Tavares and Auston Matthews scored and Erik Kallgren made 21 saves for the Maple Leafs, who finished a three-game homestand at 1-0-2.

Jets 4, Hurricanes 3 (OT)

Josh Morrissey scored his second goal of the game 2:10 into overtime and host Winnipeg responded from an embarrassing collapse to defeat Carolina.

The Hurricanes rallied with three goals in the last five minutes of regulation to extend the game. Michael Eyssimont scored his first NHL goal and Pierre-Luc Dubois had a goal and two assists for the Jets, who scored once in every period. Blake Wheeler also had two assists.

Jaccob Slavin put the Hurricanes on the board with his first goal of the season with 4:48 to play. Andrei Svechnikov, who assisted on the first goal, delivered Carolina’s second goal with 3:08 left. Martin Necas tied it with 39 seconds left. Sebastian Aho picked up assists on all three goals.

Predators 4, Coyotes 3 (SO)

Roman Josi and Matt Duchene scored 28 seconds apart to give Nashville the lead early in the third period, but the Predators needed a shootout to claim a victory over visiting Arizona.

In the shootout, Cody Glass scored the final goal in the seventh round for the Predators, who also got a regulation goal from Matt Duchene. Juuse Saros stopped 24 shots for the win.
