John Tavares will look to extend his point streak to 12 games on Saturday when the Isles host Carolina. It would be the longest streak in the NHL this season -- David Krejci is the only other player in the NHL to have an 11-game streak this season.
Only 2 players had streaks of at least 12 games last season:
Sidney Crosby had a 25-game point streak before the Islanders stopped it in late December. Crosby went an incredible 26-24-50 in those 25 games.
Ilya Kovalhuk had a 12-game streak for New Jersey from February 1-February 25th, going 7-7-14 in the streak.
Six different players (Perry-Stamkos-Connolly-Malkin-Kesler-Burrows) had streaks of at least 12 games in 2009-10, with Perry's 19-gamer topping the list.
