It was Gostisbehere's second straight multi-point contest and his third in the span of five games. He's up to 10 goals and 49 points in 57 contests this season. That's a new career-high in points with a good chunk of time left in the campaign.

Couturier reached that by registering an assist in a 2-1 win against Columbus on Thursday. He has 29 goals and 61 points in 61 contests in 2017-18.

Miles Wood is on a three-game point streak.

Technically it's not because he missed two games due to a suspension, but Wood has now recorded a point in the last three contests he's played in. He kept that run going with an assist in the Devils' 4-2 loss to Minnesota on Thursday. He's up to 16 goals and 27 points in 58 contests in 2017-18.

Cory Schneider (groin) wasn't on the ice Thursday.

Schneider had been skating recently and even participated in Wednesday's lightly populated optional skate. Don't read too much into his absence on Thursday though as he's still expected to skate on Friday. Under ideal circumstances, he might make his return next week.

Taylor Hall is currently enjoying the longest point streak of the 2017-18 campaign.

Hall has recorded at least a point in 20 consecutive games, but in the NHL's eyes, his thumb injury ended his point streak. Even still, that leaves him with a 13-game point streak, which is the best of the season. "Twenty is a cool number," said Hall. "It seems like forever since I really didn’t have a point. It’s been nice. Unfortunately, it really hasn’t resulted in as many wins as I would have liked. At the end of the day, that’s what I’m here for. I want to keep producing but, at the same time, get more wins." Hall is correct there. The Devils haven't done a great job of taking advantage of Hall's hot play as they've gone 9-9-2 over those 20 games.
Feb 23 - 4:53 AM

Leon Draisaitl scored a goal and registered an assist in Edmonton's 3-2 overtime win against Colorado on Thursday.

Draisaitl has 18 goals and 54 points in 56 contests in 2017-18. He'll finish below his 77-point total from 2016-17 because he missed some time this season due to injury, but nevertheless his 2017-18 showing has reinforced his status as a top-tier forward.
Feb 23 - 4:31 AM

Dougie Hamilton has five goals and nine points in his last five games.

Hamilton has more points than any other player from Feb. 15 to present. That's pushed him to 14 goals and 38 points in 62 contests in 2017-18. It had been looking like he wouldn't be able to match last season's finish of 50 points, but this hot streak has put him on pace to do just that.

Micheal Ferland was held out of the third period of Thursday's game.

Ferland was actually hurt back on Feb. 15th, but remained in the lineup. Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said that Ferland was taken out of Thursday's contest for precautionary reasons, so perhaps he'll still be available on Saturday. We'll list him as day-to-day for now.
