2. With thanks to Elias:
Since 1996, the only other NHL player to score two-or-more goals in each of his team¢s first two games of a season was Markus Naslund, who did that for the Canucks in October 2005.
Only two players had at least two goals in each of their team¢s first three games of a season: Ottawa¢s Cy Denneny, who had a four-game streak to begin 1917-18, the NHL¢s first season, and Quebec¢s Peter Stastny, who started 1982-83 with three consecutive multiple-goal games.>>
3. The loss ends a five-game home win streak over the Caps, longest since winning thirteen straight over Washington from 1978-82. (The Caps were 0-18-1 in their first 19 games on Long Island)
