He posted the longest assist streak of the season (12 games, Nov. 10 - Dec. 6) and ranked third in the League in assists. Savard has registered 206 assists over the past three seasons; the only NHL player with more is San Jose's Joe Thornton (255). <br /> <br /> Savard appeared in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in 2007-08, his 10th NHL season. His wait of 659 regular-season games was the longest in League history, surpassing Dennis Maruk (581 games; 1983), Bob Stewart (575; 1980) and Scott Walker (574; 2004). Savard's first playoff goal came at 9:25 of overtime in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference QF against Montreal. He is the fifth Bruin in franchise history to score his first career playoff goal in overtime. <br /> <br /> Savard made a memorable All-Star Game debut last year in Atlanta, where he had played from 2002-03 through 2005-06. Assigned his old locker room stall and placed on a line with former Thrashers teammate Ilya Kovalchuk, Savard scored the game-winning goal at 19:39 of the third period in the Eastern Conference's 8-7 victory. <br /> <br /> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br /> On his NHL career to date: &quot;Coming into the league and playing on the Rangers we had a lot of stars and it was tough to make a name there. Then I went to Calgary and got a great opportunity to play. And then when I moved onto Atlanta that's where things started to get better. Coach Hartley really helped me out and I owe a lot to him, especially in the early stages there. He just told me, 'Here's the ball. If you want to take it, just go.' He gave me a lot of ice time and I was able to succeed there, and I moved onto Boston where I'm happy and hopefully I can finish out my career here and keep getting better.&quot; <br /> <br /> On scoring the last-minute, game-winning goal in last year's All-Star Game with his children sitting right behind the net: &quot;Something I'll never forget. I'm sure they won't either. It's a special time we got to share together as a family.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Bruins head coach Claude Julien: &quot;I find Savvy skating more this year than he has in the past. So he's been involved in a lot of plays at both ends of the ice. That's really helped his game grow as well.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=394241&amp;cmpid=rss">Total Game Completes Savard, Bruins</a><br /> <a href="http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/articles/2008/12/11/savard_point_total_no_longer_uneven/">Savard Point Total No Longer Uneven</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&amp;id=20146">Savard Feature</a><br /> <br /> <div id="asstatsbox" style="border: 1px solid rgb(161, 161, 161); margin: 4px 0px; padding: 0px; float: left; width: 660px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" class="asstat"> <tbody> <tr class="headrw"> <td>SEASON</td> <td>TEAM</td> <td>Score</td> <td>R</td> <td align="center">GP</td> <td align="center">G</td> <td align="center">A</td> <td align="center">PTS</td> <td align="center">+/-</td> <td align="center">PIM</td> <td align="center">PP</td> <td align="center">SH</td> <td align="center">GW</td> <td align="center">SOG</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2007-08</td> <td>East</td> <td>8-7</td> <td>W</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">2</td> <td align="center">3</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center" class="right">1</td> </tr> <tr class="totrw"> <td colspan="4">All-Star Totals</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">2</td> <td align="center">3</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center" class="right">1</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> <script type="text/javascript">jQuery(function(){ jQuery('#asstatsbox').corner('6px'); });</script>
Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
