Under the coaching of Nico Hischier (23), New Jersey matched a franchise record Monday night into the NHL. Thanks to the contribution of the Valaisan center forward, credited with three assists in the Devils’ success against Edmonton (5-2) at the Prudential Center, the team coached by Lindy Ruff achieved their 13th consecutive victory.

The New York suburban club did as well as in 2000/2001, the season at the end of which they reached the Stanley Cup final (lost to Freiburg goalkeeper David Aebischer’s Colorado Avalanche).

As for the longest winning streak in the North American professional league, it belongs to the Pittsburgh Penguins, who had 17 winning games lined up in 1992/1993.

Lined up for 19’20”, Nico Hischier was the protagonist of the Devils’ first two goals before picking up the third personal point on the 4-2 lead conceded to Slovakian winger Tomas Tatar. The New Jersey captain, decorated with the second star, has 22 points, including 9 goals, in 18 charges. “He’s the funniest streak of my time playing hockey,” he said of his team’s streak. I don’t want it to end.”

His teammate, the Zurich defender Jonas Siegenthaler (25′), closed the match with a differential of +2 (20’19”).

Josi’s 4th goals

At the Bridgestone Arena, Roman Josi (32) influenced the fortunes of Nashville against Arizona (4-3 tab). The Predators full-back from Bern scored his fourth goal of the season (2-2 in power play in the 42nd minute) as well as being rewarded with an assist.

The Tennessee club captain fell short of Saskatchewan goalkeeper Connor Ingram in a penalty shoot-out that required 14 fireworks, but was still awarded the third star.

Graubünden winger Nino Niederreiter (30′) had a tougher outing with the Preds (-2 in 13’39” of play), while Bern defender Janis Moser (22′) picked up an assist with the Coyotes .

Impressive Meier series

At the SAP Center in San Jose, Timo Meier (26) scored in the Sharks’ 2-1 win against Ottawa (5-1). Appenzell’s right fielder hampers Ontario goalie Cam Talbot’s vigilance from a tight angle.

The Swiss, who managed 18 points (9 goals) in 21 games, has ditched the table in eleven of the last twelve games.
