Twenty-six games. That’s how many games that are consecutive New Jersey Devils winger Taylor Hall has appeared on the scoresheet and oddsmakers have him recorded at -150 that he’ll probably get to 28 games and outside.
Only Two Players Since 1993 Have Had Point Streaks Exceeding 24 Games – Patrick Kane At 26 Games At 2015 And Sidney Crosby At 25 Games In 2011.
Point stripes at the NHL are fairly common. Players have achieved streaks of 10 to 15 games since scoring from the 1970s and’80s’ heyday. But what Hall is doing has been remarkable once you consider only two gamers since 1993 have experienced point streaks exceeding 24 matches (Patrick Kane at 26 matches in 2015 and Sidney Crosby at 25 games in 2011).
The Edmonton Oilers has to be kicking themselves for dealing Hall since the scoring winger will be more thrilling playing on the line of Connor McDavid. Hall has maintained the Devils afloat in the Eastern Conference playoff picture and has 38 points in this streak and 18 goals.
Who are the competitions for the Devils?
New Jersey includes Winnipeg, Nashville, Vegas, Los Angeles and Anaheim on the docket over the next 10 days, which could be problematic for Hall to keep the series going as most of five teams are rated in the top 10 in fewest goals allowed per game. Bettors may want to tread carefully before fully endorsing the Devils winger to guarantee the longest point streak in the NHL since 1993 (Mats Sundin in 30 games).
