McDavid hits point #100 in his 53rd game with an assist on Draisaitl's 2nd PPG of the game

With the Coyotes’ game against San Jose last night, Phil Kessel has become the fifth player in NHL history to play 900 consecutive games.

Third of the season as well, after Yandle and Marleau.
Interestingly enough, we hadn’t had any since the 80s, and likely won’t have anymore for a while; the next active guy on the 500+ list is Brent Burns, who’s still at less than 600.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have finished ahead of the Washington Capitals in the division standings for the first time since 2014.

Now that the Penguins have clinched 1st in the East Division, they'll finish with not only their first division title of any kind since 2014, but also the first time they've finished with at least the same amount of points as the Capitals, who had won every Metropolitan division title since 2016.
Of course, the Capitals' divisional dominance has meant relatively little as the Penguins are 2-1 in playoff series against the Caps in this span (with the winner of each matchup winning the Stanley Cup from 2016 to 2018), and the Pens have mostly dominated this rivalry since the 90's. Will we get more of the same in 2021? We'll find out later th...

A look at Anze Kopitar's career
Reddit /r/hockey | 10 May 00h33
With Kopitar recently scoring his 1000th point a few nights ago, I wanted to look back at his career, and what he accomplished, as well as comparing to his peers. I'm a big Kopitar fan, so this was a fun little post to see what he has accomplished during his career.
# 1. The 2005 Draft
Kopitar was drafted 11th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He was the highest rated European player to be drafted. Unfortunately, he was not drafted higher because some GMS didn't want to draft a player who pushes up rocks up a mountain, and jumping over milk crates (looking at you Doug ;). Well, that didn't stop him to have a HoF career.
For all play...
[Tim Reynolds] Andrei Vasilevskiy gave up four goals through two periods last night. It's only the third time that has happened in his last 73 games. All three instances were against the Florida Panthers.

The next best player that comes through the NHL will wear #7
Reddit /r/hockey | 09 May 23h29
After thorough investigation through thousands of NHL games, I have found the truth. The next best player in the league has been born in 2007. Why 2007 you may ask? Well, there’s a pattern right now.
Sidney Crosby was born in 1987, Connor Mcdavid was born in 1997. These two players have been the best for their respective decades. and finally, *blank* was born in 2007.
Sidney Crosby wears #87. Connor Mcdavid wears #97. And now the most likely scenario is that the new man on the block will wear #7
[StatsCentre] Thanks to his 1st of 2 helpers in the 1st period for his Blackhawks against the Stars tonight (a game his team leads 3-1 late in the 2nd frame), Patrick Kane has passed Phil Housley and Brian Leetch for the most career 50+ assist seasons by a US-born player in NHL history (7)
