Shayne Gostisbehere of the Philadelphia Flyers set an NHL record for a rookie defenseman with a point in his 11th consecutive game when he scored a power-play goal 3:49 into the third period against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

Gostisbehere broke the record of Barry Beck, who had two 10-game point streaks as a rookie with the Colorado Rockies in the 1977-78 season. Gostisbehere also set a Flyers rookie record for longest point streak, eclipsing the previous mark of 10 games set by Mikael Renberg in 1993-94.

Gostisbehere tied the game 1-1 with his goal, which came with Devils forward Sergey Kalinin serving a double high-sticking minor after his stick cut Flyers captain Claude Giroux.

Gostisbehere has three goals and 11 assists during his streak, and 10 goals and 20 assists in 36 games this season.
