NHL news and notes

by NHL Public Relations @NHL /

* Alexander Radulov (1-2-3) matched a career high with three points, and Shea Weber had a goal and an assist, to help the Montreal Canadiens win their fourth straight game. Radulov, who signed as a free agent on July 1, earned three points in an NHL game for the first time since Jan. 21, 2008 (w/ NSH). Weber, acquired in trade with the Nashville Predators for P.K. Subban on June 29, has at least one point in five of his first six games with the Canadiens (2-5-7). Montreal, which began the 2015-16 season with a team-record nine straight wins, sits atop the NHL standings with 11 points this season (5-0-1).

* Brian Elliott made 31 saves and stopped all seven shootout attempts he faced, and Kris Versteeg scored the decisive goal to lead the Calgary Flames past the Chicago Blackhawks. Elliott, who was acquired on June 24 in a trade with the St. Louis Blues, picked up his first win with Calgary. Versteeg, a free agent signing on Oct. 11, scored his third career game-deciding goal; his other such goals came with the Blackhawks, with whom he won the Stanley Cup in 2010 and 2015.

California rivals Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks face off for the first time this season when they play at SAP Center on the back end of a doubleheader on NBCSN. The Ducks have won each of the last three games between the teams, including consecutive 1-0 victories on Nov. 7 and Dec. 4, 2015. The Sharks are led by Brent Burns, whose nine points (3-6-9) give him a share of the League lead, while the Ducks counter with captain Ryan Getzlaf, who had three assists against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday and leads all players with seven assists this season (tied w/ Claude Giroux).
