Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

When Montreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher agreed to share his NFL Playoffs predictions on, he couldn't have been happier.

"Hey," Gallagher said to teammate Nathan Beaulieu that day, "you're looking at the new NFL Insider."

After one week, the new NFL Insider is looking pretty good.

Gallagher went 4-0 in his first week of predictions on, successfully picking the New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers to reach their respective conference championship games.

Six wins stand between Blackhawks and NHL record

Monday, 01.18.2016 / 10:44 AM / News

The Chicago Blackhawks, winners of 11 straight, have a chance to accomplish what the Florida Panthers recently took a run at themselves: tying the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins' NHL record of 17 consecutive regular-season victories.

Whereas the Panthers' 12-game win streak came a bit out of left field -- the franchise is looking to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs for only the second time since 2000 -- the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks have been showing for years they have the consistency and big-game pedigree to keep piling up the wins. Their current run, which began with a 7-5 win against the Arizona Coyotes on Dec. 29, has them sitting atop the Western Conference standings.

The Blackhawks hit the road for seven of their next eight games starting Tuesday against the Nashville Predators (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN1, SNO, CSN-CH). They'll have a chance to set a franchise record with their 12th straight win and tie the Panthers for the longest win streak this season.

Here's a look at Chicago's next six games and the challenges it faces in attempting to match the 1992-93 Penguins:

WASHINGTON -- Goaltender Braden Holtby left the Washington Capitals' game against the New York Rangers late in the second period because of dehydration and did not return to the game.

Holtby left with 2:18 remaining in the second period, 14 seconds after allowing the Rangers' second goal of the game. Holtby skated to the bench and had a long conversation with trainer Greg Smith, then went to the dressing room and was replaced by Philipp Grubauer.

“It’s just dehydration,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said after Washington’s 5-2 win. “I think it’s playing a little bit yesterday, flying, all those things. I don’t think there’s anything other than that. He said that he was having a little trouble getting focused, and he didn’t get hit or anything. “

Holtby made 20 saves on 22 shots before leaving. He was credited with the victory, his League-high 29th of the season. The 26-year-old is 29-5-2 with a .931 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against-average.
