Maple Leafs’ Marner extends point streak to 19 games, breaks franchise record

Watch as Mitch Marner forces a turnover and gets in the right spot to score against the Lightning, making Maple Leafs history by extending his point streak to a franchise record 19 games.

Toronto Maple Leafs right winger Mitch Marner has broken the franchise record for the longest point streak after recording a point for the 19th consecutive game Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Marner extended his streak with a short-handed goal in the second period to give Toronto a 1-0 lead.

Marner tied the previous franchise record of 18 games, shared by Darryl Sittler and Ed Olczyk, on Nov. 30 against the San Jose Sharks with an empty-net goal late in the third period.

Over the 19-game stretch, Marner has registered eight goals and 17 assists.
