All The NHL Scores
Get caught up on last night's NHL scores with recaps from our network of SB Nation team blogs. Here's a quick glance at the full night of action:
Prior to last night's games, we presented five burning questions regarding the night's action. Here are your cool, soothing answers.
1. Will the Chicago Blackhawks extend their 15-game point streak to 16 games?
2. Will the San Jose Sharks register their first win in February?
3. Will the St. Louis Blues' travel complications affect their play on Tuesday night?
Yeah, they did! The Blues definitely looked tired in the third period, which is when the Sharks scored the game-winning goal.
4. Will Ben Scrivens and the Toronto Maple Leafs keep their shutout streak going?
He didn't do it! Not even close, in fact. Scrivens' shutout streak ended at a little more than 154 minutes. He allowed four goals on 13 shots in the Toronto loss.
5. Will the Montreal Canadiens extend their winning streak to five games?
What moment from last night's games will be making headlines in the coming days?
