Scott Hartnell knows how to mark a milestone.
The Nashville Predators' forward, playing in his 1,200th NHL game, scored a goal in a 5-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. It was the first game between the teams since last season's Western Conference Final, which the Predators won in six games.
Hartnell, who played his first NHL game in 2000, scored his fourth goal of the season and the 318th of his career at 6:26 of the first period to give the Predators a 1-0 lead.
The 35-year-old became the ninth active player to reach the 1,200-game milestone, joining Jaromir Jagr, Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Matt Cullen, Zdeno Chara, Marian Hossa, Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin.

Just like they drew it up
Go to the net and good things will happen. The Edmonton Oilers must be subscribers to that theory because they scored not one, but two fortunate goals off players who happened to be around the net in their 6-3 win against the New Jersey Devils. One was by Ryan Strome and the other by Milan Lucic.

Another Golden goalie
The first-year Vegas Golden Knights have had some tough luck with their goalies. They've lost three to injury this season -- Marc-Andre Fleury, Malcolm Subban and Oscar Dansk. Their current backup, Dylan Ferguson, is a 19-year-old who had to travel 12 hours to join the Golden Knights after he got the call while playing for the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. Amalie Benjamin has more.
Anaheim Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano has showed up for work every single day of his NHL career. Cogliano is expected to play in his 800th regular-season game when the Ducks visit the San Jose Sharks on Saturday (10:30 p.m.; NBCSCA, PRIME, NHL.TV), but he's not ready to heap praise on himself for the fourth-longest consecutive games streak in NHL history.
A not-so-simple name game
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Conor Sheary gets his name mispronounced. Like, a lot. Even by the team's public address announcer. So stop saying it wrong, everyone.
More than just a face
New Jersey Devils forward Adam Henrique is not only supporting Movember on his face, but also on his skates during Hockey Fights Cancer month with a unique message.
