Taylor Hall did something on Thursday night that no other New Jersey Devils player has in the team’s history.
With an assist on Nico Hischier‘s third-period goal, Hall extended his point streak to 16 games.
Hall has 11 goals and 24 points during the streak. And perhaps what is most impressive about his hot run is how much punishment he’s taken while on it.
Burrows, who was later suspended 10-games for his antics, appeared to drive his knee into the back of Hall’s head twice, this after jumping him from behind.
Hall actually scored on the play, and despite appearing very shaken up, returned to the game later on.
Hall escaped suspension on the hit, getting hit in the wallet to the tune of $5,000 in lieu.
