Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov extended his point streak to an NHL career-high eight games with an assist in a 2-0 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.

The 19-year-old, who leads the Hurricanes with 27 points (11 goals, 16 assists) in 24 games, is the second teenager in Hurricanes/Hartford Whalers history to record at least one point in eight straight games. Ron Francis did so three times for the Whalers (10 games, Oct. 30-Nov.20, 1982; nine games, Dec. 6-23, 1982 and Feb. 20-March 10, 1983).

Streaking teams

The New York Islanders and Dallas Stars each will try to extend an impressive team point streak Monday.

The Islanders have at least one point in a team-record 17 consecutive games (15-0-2) heading into their game against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center (10 p.m. ET; PRIME, MSG+, NHL.TV). They will try to become the ninth team since 1984-85 to have a point streak of at least 18 games. The longest such streak in that span is by the Chicago Blackhawks, who had at least one point in 24 straight games (21-0-3) from Jan. 19-March 6, 2013.

The Stars play the Vegas Golden Knights at American Airlines Center (8:30 p.m. ET; FS-SW, ATTSN-RM, NHL.TV) looking to extend their point streak to 12 games. They are 10-0-1 in their past 11 games and are on a season-long six-game winning streak.
Dallas leads the League with nine wins in November and could match the team record for most victories in a single month (12) by winning each of its remaining three games before December. The Stars were 12-0-2 in February 2008.
