2/19/16: Shayne Gostisbehere sends a beautiful pass to Michael Raffl, who jams the puck past Mike Condon to give the Flyers the lead

  • 00:19 •

Shayne Gostisbehere of the Philadelphia Flyers extended his record point streak by an NHL rookie defenseman to 14 games Friday with an assist against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre. 

He had the primary assist on a goal by Michael Raffl at 3:15 of the third period. 

It is the longest point streak by an NHL defenseman in almost 20 years, since Brian Leetch had a 14-game streak for the New York Rangers (Oct. 30-Dec. 1, 1996). 

The streak, which started Jan. 19, is the second-longest in the NHL this season, behind the 26 games of Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane (Oct.17-Dec. 13). 

The longest point streak by an NHL rookie since 1987-88 is 20 games by forward Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche (Feb. 3-March 17, 2007). Gostisbehere is tied for third-longest, and has the longest by a Flyers rookie. 

Colorado Rockies defenseman Barry Beck held the record with two 10-game point streaks during the 1977-78 season. 

Gostisbehere has 11 goals and 22 assists in 39 games this season.
