Kirby Dach joined select company in the history of the Chicago Blackhawks by scoring two goals in a 4-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres at United Center on Sunday.
The forward, chosen with the No. 3 pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, became the third 18-year-old with a multigoal game for Chicago in the regular season or Stanley Cup Playoffs. Eddie Olczyk scored two goals against the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the 1985 Division Semifinals on April 10, 1985, and Patrick Kane scored two goals against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 23, 2007.
Dach has six points (four goals, two assists) during a four-game point streak. He is the fourth 18-year-old with a streak of at least four for the Blackhawks (9-7-4), who have won four straight games and are 6-1-1 in their past eight after going 2-4-2 in their previous eight. Kane also stretched his point streak to nine games, during which he has 17 points (eight goals, nine assists), and he's scored at least one goal in six in a row, the longest run by any NHL player this season.
Brent Seabrook played in his 1,100th NHL game. The 34-year-old defenseman is second in Blackhawks history behind Stan Mikita (1,394).
Karlsson, Fleury deliver for Golden Knights
William Karlsson had two goals and an assist for the Vegas Golden Knights in a 6-0 win against the Calgary Flames at T-Mobile Arena. The forward scored his 74th and 75th goals with Vegas, tied for eighth for most through the first 200 regular-season games of a team in the modern era (since 1943-44), and Karlsson is the only player to skate in each of Vegas' 186 games since joining the NHL in 2017-18.
Two players had a higher goal total than Wayne Gretzky of the Edmonton Oilers (156) through any NHL team's first 200 regular-season games: Cy Denneny (212) for the original Ottawa Senators and Babe Dye (164) with the Toronto St. Patricks.
Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves for his 58th NHL shutout to pass Clint Benedict and Pekka Rinne (57) and tie John Ross Roach for 19th in NHL history. He is second among active goalies in shutouts behind Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers (63) and one win from becoming the seventh NHL goalie with 450.
The Golden Knights are 6-0-0 against the Flames at T-Mobile Arena. Calgary is 0-3-1 in its past four games and has not scored a goal in 130:30, including a 3-0 loss at the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.
