Mitch Marner sets new Leafs point streak record at 19 consecutive games
There’s a new all-time record-holder for the longest point streak in Toronto Maple Leafs history as Mitch Marner collected a point in his 19th consecutive game on Saturday.
Marner’s goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning moves him past Eddie Olczyk and Darryl Sittler, who held the previous mark of 18 straight games with at least one goal or assist.
Marner scored a short-handed goal and also notched the tying goal in the third period for Toronto to force overtime, as he has 10 goals to go along with 17 assists over the past 19 games.
The previous record held by Sittler was set during the 1978-79 season with 17 goals and 16 assists in 18 consecutive outings, while Olczyk matched that consecutive streak with 11 goals and 17 helpers during the 1989-90 season with the Leafs.
Toronto wound up losing 4-3 in overtime.
