Oct. 30, 1996
The dreaded month of October 1996 came to a close with a 6-3 loss to Vancouver. This was the final loss in the franchise record eight game losing streak (started 10/12) and nine game winless streak (started 10/10) as well as the most consecutive games allowing a power play goal (12, started 10/5 69 for 89, 77.5% on the PK over that span) A 4-3 win over the Sharks on November 1 including a hat trick by Teemu and two assists by Paul Kariya (his second game of the season) ended all of those dubious streaks. For reference, in last year's infamously terrible month of November the Ducks gained only one more point in the standings than the October '96 team and had a losing streak of seven games, pretty close, but their longest streak of PP goals against was only six games, for the entire 20111-12 season.

Ducks related #RandomNHLfact from @NHLhistoryGirl:
During his days playing for the #Caps, (Ducks goalie coach) Pete Peeters' mask didn't have a chin cup.
Brian Hayward began a goalie mask replication company after retirement because the league was getting collectibles revenue, not players
On this date (10/31) in 2008, #NHLDucks Teemu Selanne scored his 560th career goal, tying Guy Lafleur on the all-time goals list.
On this date in 1993, #NHLDucks Anatoli Semenov began a 9 game point-scoring streak, and setting team record. (Current record 19 games held by Corey Perry, set in 2009)
Scott Stevens, Ken Daneyko, Scott Niedermayer & Martin Brodeur all referred to themselves as #NJDevil "lifers." #RandomNHLfact (not unexpected, and probably valid, but it still makes me sad)
"Having those two mutants draped over you all game is pretty tiring." - Chris Pronger on playing against John LeClair and Eric Lindros
"Maybe we'll have to go out and have some Finlandia vodka and get it all out in the open." - Pronger on being teammates with rival Selanne
