Connor McDavid earned his 400th NHL point in style for the Edmonton Oilers with his fifth hat trick and 45th three-point game in a 6-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Sunday.
The center has 402 points (139 goals, 263 assists) in 306 games since he was chosen by the Oilers with the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. He is the 13th NHL player to need 306 or fewer games to reach the milestone and joined Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby as the second active player to accomplish the feat in that span. At 22 years and 301 days, the Oilers captain is the eighth player to get 400 points before his 23rd birthday and 17th (only active) with 45 three-point games en route to the milestone.
McDavid (30 points; 11 goals, 19 assists) and Leon Draisaitl (34 points; 14 goals, 20 assists) each have 30 points through 19 games with the Oilers this season, the fifth time in the past 25 years that teammates each accomplished the feat before their team's 20th game. Draisaitl also matched an NHL career-high with four assists Sunday and extended his point streak to nine games (18 points; eight goals, 10 assists). Draisaitl, who also had an eight-game point streak from Oct. 2-18 (six goals, 10 assists), is one of four NHL players since 1989-90 with multiple eight-game point streaks prior to his team's 20th game (Steven Stamkos, Tampa Bay Lightning, 2012-13; Rod Brind'Amour, Philadelphia Flyers, 1993-94; Brian Bradley, Lightning, 1992-93).
Lehner delivers for Blackhawks
Robin Lehner tied his NHL career high with 53 saves (23 in the third period) for the Chicago Blackhawks in a 5-4 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs at United Center.
Lehner is the fourth different Blackhawks goalie with at least 53 saves in one game since 1955-56, when saves started being officially tracked. He joined Connor Hellebuyck of the Winnipeg Jets (Nov. 1 at the San Jose Sharks) and Mike Smith of the Oilers (Nov. 2 at the Penguins) as those with 50-save performances in the past 10 days.
Rookie defenseman Myers keeps rolling for Flyers
Philippe Myers scored his third goal in as many days for the Flyers in a 3-2 shootout win against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. The rookie (22 years, 290 days) is the seventh different Flyers defenseman with a three-game point streak and third in the NHL in the past 30 years.
Forwards Oskar Lindblom, 23, and Travis Konecny, 22, lead the Flyers with eight goals each. The last time two players 23 or younger led them in goals through at least 10 games was 2007-08, when Mike Richards and Jeff Carter each scored six goals in 10 games.
