The Buffalo Sabers remained & # 39; red, Brian Boyle scored a memorable goal in & # 39; special afternoon, Travis KONECNY completed the hat-trick & # 39; Gordie Howe and Joe Thornton added another stage in his Hall of Fame career.
Here are five things we learned from slate & # 39; 15 game filled with & # 39; none of NHL action Friday.
Turn over 500 games of NHL free blackout, including Flames, Oilers, Canucks and Leafs. Plus Hockey Night in Canada, Rogers Hometown Hockey, Scotiabank Wednesday Night Hockey and more.
Buffalo can not be stopped
Not even a full night & # 39; gorging on turkey and stuffing can & # 39; reduces the Buffalo Sabers beauty games.
A day after American Thanksgiving, the most hot team NHL kept rolling, picked their straight-eight with a goal courtesy of & # 39; Jeff Skinner in overtime against Kanadiens of Atari 39; Montreal.

The races of & # 39; eight games & # 39; Buffalo are large string group & # 39; consecutive wins dating back to the 2006-07 season.
If I did not take this team seriously in season, you should be by now. The Sabers are a legitimate threat (although surprisingly) Division & # 39; Atlantic.
Boyle creates another moment of magic hockey
A few weeks ago, survivors of leukemia Brian Boyle made the first hat-trick of his NHL career on Hockey Night in Fight Cancer & # 39; Pittsburgh.
It is only fitting & # 39; Devils & # 39; forward again & # 39 marked another; on the Night of Noise on the Cancun night, only this time with & # 39; New Jersey hosts the event at the Prudential Center.
Boyle was not noted hat another trick, and his team could not come out victorious this time, but the significance of & # 39; target in & # 39; other timely than 33 years – rightly gave him a 200 point & # 39; Career – provided yet another & # 39; inspiration, magic moment in the career of the ship.
If you do not see the following video detailing the battle & # 39; Boyle to overcome cancer, is well worth your time:
Thornton go & # 39; to the list & # 39; assistance for all time
The dog center of the sea & # 39; San Jose Joe Thornton conducted quite a few events during his NHL career spanning two decades. Just this season, he became the 19th player in NHL history to reach the plateau of the 1500 game, then followed that his goal of 400 a few weeks later career.
B & # 39; less than 10 seconds remaining & # 39; in the first period of the victory of the Sharks at Canucks of & # 39; Vancouver, Thornton made another step on his historic career with his assistance in 1034, passing Mario Lemieux for the 11th time.
The first option & # 39; the draft of NHL & # 39; 1997 only needs eight more to move Marcel Dionne in the past ten more assistance in league history, and 17 beyond Gordie Howe, who holds the No. 9 spot time with & # 39; 1049 Career assist.
Side note: The Sharks went on to defeat the Canucks, and will give the seven & # 39; & # 39 consecutive losses in; line.
KONECNY, Giroux have quite a day at the office
The captain Claude Giroux team made some history in shutout of & # 39; of & # 39 4-0; Philadelphia Flyers New York Rangers, who left in second place on the list of & # 39; all assistance Flyers with & # 39; No 481.
Giroux still follow the brand & # 39; best representation & # 39; Bobby Clarke & # 39; 852. While the record is far & # 39; away and x & # 39; likely not eclipsjat from Giroux, second place for the second NHL franchise to f & # 39; that category is still a little something to carry.
Travis KONECNY added to the pleasure & # 39; Philadelphia, which deals with supporters & # 39; Hometown for a hat-trick of & # 39; Gordie Howe.
For those who ask, the hat-trick & # 39; Gordie Howe is when the player removes the trifecta & # 39; goal scoring, and recording assistance and dropping & # 39; all the gloves in the same game. While not as productive from the statistical aspect typical hat-trick, certainly provides a unique type & # 39; entertainment to create a similar level & # 39; excitement.
Flyers netminder Calvin Pickard provided the icing on the cake, and made 31 saves for his first shutout of the season.
