Henrique ties Devils’ record for longest goal-scoring streak

Mar 9, 2014, 1:18 PM EDT

Adam Henrique‘s career got off to a great start, but at the time he was often playing alongside Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise.

Without that kind of talent surrounding him, he hasn’t been able to replicate that level of success since his rookie campaign. Well, not until recently anyways.

Since the Olympic break, Henrique has found the back of the net in six straight games and has tied the New Jersey Devils’ record, according to the Star-Ledger.

He’s netted nine goals over his streak, giving him a career-best 23 this season. That’s kept the Devils afloat as they’ve been playing a looser game defensively since the break.

New Jersey is four points shy of the second Wild Card spot, but they’ve also played in two more games than the current holder of that position; Detroit.

The Devils will continue their quest to squeak into the playoffs on Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    The link doesn’t actually take us to the story, but to a link to the story. And Henrique has matched the Devils record, but not the franchise record of 8 games set by Paul Gagne when they were the Rockies in 1979.
    FWIW, the “modern” NHL mark is 13 games by Charlie Simmer of the Kings, also in 1979. The all-time NHL record is an amazing 16 games by Punch Broadbent in 1922.
