Frans Nielsen is now part of the NHL history books -- With help from SIHR, I have confirmed that Saturday marked the first time in NHL history that 4 players scored on a penalty shot on the same day.
Most Penalty Shot Goals, One Day--
4 - October 30, 2010
1 David SteckelWASHINGTON Goal Henrik Karlsson CALGARY WSH 7 @ CGY 2
2Frans Nielsen NY ISLANDERS Goal Sergei Bobrovsky PHILADELPHIA NYI 1 @ PHI 6
3David Booth FLORIDA Goal Carey Price MONTREAL FLA 3 @ MTL 1
4Ryan Callahan NY RANGERS Goal Jean-Sebastien Giguere TORONTO NYR 2 @ TOR 0
Nielsen may also be the 1st player to score on a penalty shot and draw a misconduct penalty for being assaulted off a face-off that cause the opponent to be suspended for three games, but that's another story. It's the only penalty Nielsen has taken this season.
