  • Hall has the longest point streak of 17-18
    Taylor Hall is currently enjoying the longest point streak of the 2017-18 campaign.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:53 am
