NHL Action: By the Numbers for 12/6/2014


900: The number of career games played for Dallas Stars forward Shawn Horcoff, who participated in his 900th game Saturday, a 4-1 win for the Stars.

689: Martin Brodeur relieved Jake Allen, who gave up 3 goals on 12 shots in the first period, in net for St. Louis, and ended up leading the Blues to an eventual 6-4 win. For the 42 year-old Brodeur, the win bumped his career total to 689, 138 more wins than Patrick Roy, who sits second on the all-time wins list behind Brodeur.

100: Brad Marchand hit the 100 career goal plateau Saturday night, netting a pair for the Bruins in a 5-2 victory. Marchand becomes the second player to hit the 100-goal mark in the past two weeks, joining Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall who reached the same milestone on November 25.

61: The number of seconds between two goals scored by the Detroit Red Wings in the second period of their matchup against the New York Rangers. Riley Sheahan scored the first goal at 14:14 of the period, and just over a minute letter, Luke Glendening netted the second at 15:15 to tie the game 2-2. Detroit would go on to win 3-2 in regulation.

55: The Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins combined for a total 55 penalty minutes in their matchup Saturday. That total was in large part due to a fight in the first period between Alex Chiasson and Zach Sill, which saw Chiasson receive a total of 17 PIMs and Sill a total of 20.

44: Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier made 44 saves, the most of any goalie in action Saturday, en route to a 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

35: With a 3-point night Saturday, Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin pushed his season point total to 35, surpassing Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby as the league leader in that category. Seguin had two goals and an assist, helping the Stars to a 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

21: It’s back to Tyler Seguin with the next statistic as well. The pair of goals Seguin netted Saturday night were his 20th and 21st of the season, giving him a four-goal cushion over Vladimir Tarasenko and Rick Nash, both of whom scored Saturday as well, for the league lead.

12: The number of games played on Saturday, and not a single one went to overtime or shootout. The slight majority of the games, seven to be exact, were won by the road team.

6: The highest single team goal total in a game Saturday, achieved by the St. Louis Blues in their 6-4 win against the New York Islanders. The Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs each scored 5 goals in their respective wins.

5: Five players had multi-goal games on Saturday, all two-goal efforts. Bryan Little of the Winnipeg Jets netted a hat trick Friday. Saturday’s multi-goal scorers were Tyler Seguin, Brad Marchand, Evegeni Malkin, Paul Stastny, and Marian Hossa.
