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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
