NHL ties record with eight OT games in one day

Canada

Almost every team in the NHL was in action Thursday night — and most of them came away with at least a point.

A record-tying eight games went to overtime. That tied the mark set Feb. 22, 2007, and matched Nov. 27, 2015, both when eight of 12 games required extra time.
