Zucker a one-man show for Wild

What you need to know to start your NHL day @NHLdotcom

Jason Zucker is doing it all for the Minnesota Wild.

The forward scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday, the third straight game in which he's scored a goal.

That's not all.

Zucker has scored the past six team goals for the Wild, scoring two in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday and a hat trick in a 3-0 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. 

Not only is that the longest streak of consecutive goals by one player in Wild history, Zucker became the first player to score six consecutive team goals since Glen Murray did it for the Boston Bruins from Jan. 29 - Feb. 1, 2004, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The longest run in in NHL history is is seven goals, set by Cy Denney of the Ottawa Senators from Feb. 28 - March 7, 1921 and matched by Brian Noonan with the Chicago Blackahawks from Dec. 27-29, 1991. 



The game appeared over. Detroit Red Wings forwards Andreas Athanasiou and Anthony Mantha had a 2-on-0 breakaway in overtime. Game over -- until Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky turned the tables on them. The Blue Jackets ended up winning 2-1 in a shootout.

Quick returns

Kyle Turris just got to Nashville and he is already scoring goals. Turris finished off a nice centering pass from new teammate Miikka Salomaki in a 5-4 shootout win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a rematch of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

Global sweep for Claesson, Senators

Things could not have gone better for Fredrik Claesson and the Ottawa Senators during the 2017 SAP NHL Global Series in their sweep of the Colorado Avalanche. Claesson wrote about his experience in Sweden.


You again?

Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya haven't been teammates in a very long time, but they can still trade barbs like they are hanging around the dressing room.


Honoring our veterans

It was Veterans Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada and the NHL honored those who served their countries.


Tarasenko loses a friend

Arianna Dougan, the amazing 11-year-old girl who befriended St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko during last season, died from cancer. What she leaves behind is the amazing impact she had on Tarasenko, the Blues, and nearly everyone she met.
