Pettersson sets unbelievable NHL record on Thursday night

Updated: Jan 12

On Thursday night, everything went right for the Vancouver Canucks who continue their dominant eastern swing after soaring through the Metropolitan division. They've won four straight road games since dropping the trip opener in St. Louis, and Elias Pettersson's dominance has been a major reason for their recent surge of victories.

Pettersson has scored 7 goals, 12 points in his past four road games. His goals have came perfectly timed for the team, as he's scored an impressive four game winning goals in a row.

He has now rewritten the history books.

Pettersson calls game

On Thursday night, not only did he score the game winning goal, Pettersson became the first player in NHL history to score the game winning goal in Four straight road games.

It almost seems, impossible.

The recently reunited "Lotto line" plays a big role in Pettersson's on-ice success. This line consists of a top-line pairing of J.T. Miller, Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser. This trio of stars has combined for an absurd 27 points in their previous 4 games.

Apparently, when these three are united on a single line, the sky is the ceiling.

Now, in terms of players scoring four straight game winning goals on both home ice and on the road, Pettersson is actually now the third player in history to do this.

Still impressive.

Have yourself a night, Petey.
