What you need to know to start your NHL day

There is no cooling down Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames.

Gaudreau had a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Monday, extending his NHL career-high point streak to 10 games, his goal-scoring streak to six games and his multi-point games streak to five.

Gaudreau has 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists) this season, good for third in the League in scoring behind Tampa Bay Lightning forwards Steven Stamkos (35 points) and Nikita Kucherov (33). 

Gaudreau became the first player for the Flames to earn multiple points in five consecutive team games since Jarome Iginla from Feb. 28 - March 7, 2002 (6-6-12), according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Gaudreau became the second player to do it this season, joining Stamkos from Oct. 16-24 (2-11-13). The Flames are 7-2-0 in their past nine games.

 

The best of the best, so far

We've got all the best goals from the first quarter of the 2017-18 NHL season right here, from Tyler Toffoli's buzzer beater for the Los Angeles Kings to pretty much anything Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid does.

Devil-ish goal

Playoffs? That's right, playoffs

Stick to hockey, guys

Three Vancouver Canucks threw up enough bricks to build a house inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Thankfully, no backboards or rims were harmed in the filming of the video.

 

Classic gag

The New York Rangers played a little prank on anyone anxious to lay eyes on the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic sweaters. Check out their teaser video for a laugh.

 

Bread well spent

Limited edition toasters featuring the likeness of Wayne Gretzky, Connor McDavid and Jonathan Toews sold out in a day. The proceeds went to charity.
