A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports.
• Dany Heatley extended his season-long point-scoring streak to 14 games with a pair of goals in the Senators' 5-2 win over the Bruins on Thursday night. Heatley has scored in all 14 Senators games this season, equaling the second-longest streak in NHL history from the start of a player's tenure with a team. Wayne Gretzky set the record by scoring in the Kings' first 23 games after he joined the team (1988). Two players besides Heatley had 14-game streaks: Carey Wilson for the Rangers in 1988 and Dmitri Kvartalnov for the Bruins in 1992.
• The Senators improved their record in the Northeast Division to 9-0 with their victory over the Bruins. Only two other NHL teams started a season with wins in each of their first nine intradivision games (since the 1974-75 season) or their first nine intraconference games (1967-68 to 1973-74): The Canadiens won their first 14 in 1975, and the Capitals won their first nine in 1991.
