VIDEO: Flyers’ Gostisbehere threads needle to push point streak to 14 games

It appears Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere won't go pointless the rest of the season.

The rookie defenseman threaded the needle to Michael Raffl for a tap-in goal against the Montreal Canadiens that extended his point streak to 14 games Friday.

The streak is now tied for the third-longest by a rookie since the 1987-88 season, and it's the longest point streak by a defenseman since Brian Leetch's 14-game run back in 1996.

The helper gives Gostisbehere 33 points in 39 games.

Sabres’ Lehner tries to fight Jack Johnson during 38-save shutout

After a pair of his defensemen were hurt after being hit from behind by Columbus Blue Jackets forwards, Buffalo Sabres goalie Robin Lehner was ready to take matters into his own hands.

With a scrum ensuing after Boone Jenner knocked blue-liner Zach Bogosian into the boards, the netminder quickly joined the festivities, dropping the gloves to fight Jack Johnson before officials intervened.

The 24-year-old goalie picked up a pair of minor penalties - one for roughing and one for leaving the crease - but all would be forgotten as he made 38 saves on the way to his third career shoutout in a 4-0 win.

Bogosian did not return to the game after the hit, which earned Jenner a game misconduct. Fellow Sabres defenseman Cody Franson was also forced out of the game with an injury after being hit from behind by Scott Hartnell - who received a five-minute major for boarding.

Lehner, meanwhile, is on fire of late, allowing just two goals in his last three starts. And being no stranger to fighting, opposing players likely won't want to mess with the Sabres and their Swedish netminder any time soon.

Lehner the beast, the highlander. There can be only one! #Sabres

VIDEO: Crowd emphatically cheers on Subban midgame

While rumblings out of Montreal seem to have pitted head coach Michel Therrien and defenseman P.K. Subban against one another, the Canadiens faithful have made it clear where their allegiances lie.

The Canadiens were in action Friday for the first time since Therrien called out his star defenseman for a miscue in Wednesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche that led to the game-winning goal. Fans appeared to take Subban's side, serenading the 26-year-old with cheers early in the first period.

Subban would pick up a pair of assists on goals by Dale Weise and Max Pacioretty to surpass the 40-assist mark, joining Ottawa Senators blue-liner Erik Karlsson as the only defensemen in the league to reach that territory (Karlsson has 54 helpers).

Devils’ Tootoo ejected for hitting Islanders’ Boychuk from behind

New Jersey Devils forward Jordin Tootoo was ejected from Friday's game against the New York Islanders for a dangerous hit from behind.

Tootoo received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for sending defenseman Johnny Boychuk head first into the boards with a cross-check during the second period.

Boychuk left for the dressing room in obvious discomfort, but was back on the bench to start the final frame.

The hit will be reviewed by the NHL Department of Player Safety. Tootoo has been suspended twice in his NHL career, including a five-game suspension in 2007 for punching then-Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas.

VIDEO: Sabres’ Legwand bounces 150-foot shot past Korpisalo

Starting his 11th consecutive game Friday, Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Joonas Korpisalo will have a tough time blaming this goal on fatigue.

With the Blue Jackets on a power play, Buffalo Sabres forward David Legwand cleared the puck from his own end and watched as it bounced down the ice, and over the glove of Korpisalo from 150 feet away. The gaffe increased the Sabres' first-period lead to 2-0.

Don't worry Joonas, Vesa Toskala knows exactly how you feel.
