Multiple NHL records broken on Thursday Night

Thursday night was a record breaking night in the National Hockey League, as we saw multiple teams do the unthinkable across 13 games.

LA Kings record setting night

The LA Kings triumphant victory over the Montréal Canadiens was their 11th straight road victory. The club set an NHL record for longest road-win streak to open a season, previously held by the 2006-07 Buffalo Sabres (10-0-0).

They've not only won eleven straight road games, they've been dominant victories. The table below shows their overall stats playing away from home.

Their next road game will be Saturday afternoon when they visit Long Island to face the Islanders.

There was also one more very impressive record set during Thursday night. You can read about it below.

Sharks-Red Wings game makes history

During the second period of the game between the Red Wings and Sharks, there were a total of 8 goals scored. The Red Wings surged to a 4-0 lead, scoring 3 goals in 49 seconds, then the Sharks rallied back to make it 4-4 by the end of the period.

During a sequence in the second period, both teams combined for 6 goals in a span of 3:01, which is now the National Hockey League record for the fastest six goals combined by both teams in the same period (Previously held by Toronto/Montréal in 1944 in 3:15).

This is how the box score looked for the second period:

To make it even more absurd, three of the Sharks goals were created on short-handed breakouts during a penalty (Only two were recorded as Short-Handed goals as one was scored just a second after the penalty expired).

Thats one way to spoil Patrick Kanes Red Wings debut, Sharks.
