This latest NHL Stat Corner includes the final three days to cap off a busy and exciting November. You can find all the player and team stats and milestones from featured teams, as well as anything else you’ve missed from around the NHL.
Campbell leads the maple leaf to historic month
Jack Campbell was the first goalkeeper in Toronto Maple Leafs history to have a goal average (GAA) below 1.30 in a calendar month since 1953 when Harry Lumley did so. Campbell also posted the second-best savings rate (SV%) for a calendar month in franchise history with 0.959. The only goalkeeper to score a higher SV % was Ed Chadwick (0.976) in 1956.
Backed by one of the best goalkeepers in the league to date and possibly the best man to come off the field to match the Maple Leafs, Campbell has shined and has been a huge reason for his success in the Premier League. Toronto. In just his first start of the season as a Maple Leaf, he is doing what in his long history has barely done. Jason Spezza also played the 1,200th game of his career.
The Maple Leafs are the eighth team in NHL history to win 12 games in November. The team set a franchise record by winning seven consecutive road games, doing the same in 1940-41, 1960- 61 and 2002-03. The Maple Leafs 25 plus goal difference was the highest in a calendar month since February 1993 when the team finished with a 26. Road win record, team goal difference and ability ability to score and keep the ball out of the net all contributed to a great month around this organization.
Kraken with many first franchises
Caron Soucy scores the first goal in Seattle Kraken history. This team was also beaten by the expansion team with the most two goals missed in a single game. Other teams that have done so in their first season are the Minnesota Wild, Hartford Whalers, Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings. This record is now more impressive than most of the other expansion teams I mentioned when it comes to goals scored per game more today than before.
Will Borgen score the first point in his career? He became 33rd player in NHL history to score the first point of his career on the team that created him. Borgen was picked by Kraken in the expansion draft from the Buffalo Sabers and scored in just his second game in a Kraken uniform. He was one of many players used for this team in their first year.
Yanni Gourde scored her 200th career point in 328 games. Only five active underdogs hit that mark in fewer games. They are Artemi Panarin (223), Jonathan Marchessault (277), Tyler Johnson (297), Mats Zuccarello (299), and Tyler Bozak (316). Johnson’s former teammate appears above, a credit to former general manager Steve Yzerman. Another reason why Gourde is often said to be one of the future pieces from the Kraken expansion draft.
Predators ‘Forsberg & Saros Shine
Nashville Predators’ Juuse Saros has marked the 15th mark of his career. Filip ForsbergFour-goal night is the third time in franchise history that this has happened. Other times performed by Eric Nystrom and Rocco Grimaldi. Forsberg also scored his career 400th point. It was a relief for Predator to have him back in the squad after a hiatus, and Forsberg has looked better than ever in a surprisingly attacking team.
The Predator was 40-9-1 in franchise history when the Columbus Blue Jackets visited them. The one that represents a tie. This is an outnumbered battle whenever the Blue Jackets visit Nashville. These teams used to be in the same division, Central, when Blue Jackets were in the West.
Stars impress when their seasons are rotated
Roope Hintz scored his first career hat trick and Braden Holtby played his 500th career game against the Carolina Hurricanes. Both come as the Dallas Stars take out another top-ranked team in the NHL at home. The team with the longest home win streak currently in the NHL is six games.
Rick Bowness has coached the 2,500th regular game of his season as either head coach or assistant coach. It is the most in NHL history. He coached 576 games as head coach. It wasn’t the best end to a season last year, missing out on the knockout stages after reaching the Stanley Cup Finals last season, but after a slow start, the team got it on the right track.
Panthers Storm returns for an impressive November
The Florida Panthers were the first team to come back from at least three goals in the third period and win in 303 occasions. The last team to do so was the Capitals in 2020. Typically speaking, this win came at home, where the Panthers have dominated this season, and even have since late last season.
This is the third time in franchise history that the Panthers have at least 13 wins as of the end of November. It’s their 22nd game this season. They did the same in 1995-96 (17 of 24 games played) and 1996-97 (16 of 24 games played). Their team hasn’t been this good in a long time, and recently success has come without their captain.
Joe Thornton scored his 1,533th score, joining Mark Recchi at 12th on the all-time scoring list. He just moved into 13th place a few days ago and continues to climb.
Sabers spread wealth at the beginning of the season
Rasmus Dahlin scored his 100th career assist. He is the second-fastest debut of any player to debut with the Buffalo Sabers, a record for that number (219 games played). Only Phil House (160 games played) was faster. As for how much criticism he gets, the players develop at their own pace, and it’s hard when he’s part of a franchise that has been near the bottom of the rankings during his tenure. . Dahlin will only get better and hit more milestones with Sabers. Brett Murray also scored the first goal of his career, as many players are now shoot them in Buffalo this season.
