Shayne Gostisbehere of the Philadelphia Flyers extended his record point streak by an NHL rookie defenseman to 15 games Saturday with an overtime goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.

He scored at 29 seconds to give the Flyers a 5-4 win.

Gostisbehere has the third-longest streak by any NHL rookie since 1987-88, behind Teemu Selanne of the Winnipeg Jets (17 games; March 9-April 15, 1993) and record-holder Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche (20 games; Feb. 3-March 17, 2007).

Gostisbehere's streak is the longest by an NHL defenseman in more than 20 years, since Chris Chelios had a 15-game streak for the Chicago Blackhawks (Oct. 26-Nov. 28, 1995).

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).

Gostisbehere has 12 goals and 22 assists in 40 games this season.
