Andrei Svechnikov joined an elite group Friday when he had a goal and an assist for his seventh multipoint performance in 13 games this season, helping the Carolina Hurricanes defeat the Detroit Red Wings 7-3 at PNC Arena.
The 19-year-old forward is the fourth teenager in NHL history to have at least seven multipoint efforts in his team's first 13 games of a season. He joined Wayne Gretzky (eight games in 1980-81), Steve Yzerman (seven games in 1984-85) and Sidney Crosby (seven games in 2006-07).
Svechnikov opened the scoring against the Red Wings after scoring both of Carolina's goals in a 2-1 win against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday and the final goal in a 4-0 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 26. He is the eighth player in Hurricanes/Hartford Whalers history to score four consecutive team goals. Ron Francis (5 from March 7-11, 2002) and Josef Vasicek (5 from Oct. 28 through Nov. 1, 2003) hold the team record.
The Hurricanes are the eighth different team to score at least seven goals in a game this season.
Perron propels Blues past Blue Jackets in overtime
David Perron scored the fastest overtime goal in St. Louis Blues history, connecting eight seconds into OT in a 4-3 victory against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Enterprise Center.
Perron, who scored the OT winner in a 5-4 victory at the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, also became the second player in Blues history to score two overtime goals in a span of three team games. Joe Mullen did it on Nov. 12 and Nov. 16, 1985.
Brayden Schenn initiated the Blues' comeback after trailing 3-1, scoring his team-leading 10th goal of the season. He is the fourth Blues player since 1999-2000 to reach 10 goals in 14 or fewer games.

Forward Derick Brassard extended his goal streak to four games, and had an assist, for New York (9-3-0). It's the longest goal streak by a player in his first season with the Islanders since Michael Grabner's six-game run in 2010-11.

Bruins look to continue hot start
The Boston Bruins (9-1-2) will try to continue their hot start when they host the Ottawa Senators at TD Garden on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; ESPN+ SN360, TVAS2, NESN, NHL.TV).
The Bruins, who are 5-0-1 at home this season, have won eight in a row against the Senators, dating to Dec. 27, 2017. That's tied for their second-longest run against Ottawa since the Senators joined the NHL in 1992; Boston won 17 straight against the Senators from Oct. 12, 1992 to Nov. 9, 1995.
Boston's David Pastrnak (24 points; 12 goals, 12 assists) finished October with a League-leading average of 2.00 points per game. The 23-year-old forward is one of five players since 1996-97 to conclude October with an average of at least 2.00 points per game -- and the first since 2005, when Eric Staal (2.08 with Carolina) and Peter Forsberg (2.08 with the Philadelphia Flyers).
Bruins forward Brad Marchand has an 11-game point streak, the longest streak of his career. The last player to have his first point streak of at least 12 games at age of 31 or older was Patrick Sharp, who turned 34 during a 12-game streak with the Dallas Stars in 2015-16.
