NHL INSIDER

Who's Hot

November 24, 1998

The Phoenix Coyotes, whose 9-0-2 streak is the longest in the NHL this season. They haven't given up more than two goals in any of those games; they've given up two goals four times, one goal five times and have shut out opponents twice.

* The Buffalo Sabres, whose loss at Toronto Saturday ended a 6-0-3 streak. Dominik Hasek (1.82 goals-against average, .939 save percentage) has been rested for only one period of one game.

* Paul Kariya, who has points in nine consecutive games, the longest active streak in the league. He has four goals and 13 points in that nine-game streak and is tied with Colorado's Peter Forsberg for the NHL scoring lead at 26 points.

Who's Not

* The Tampa Bay Lightning, which has lost five consecutive games. Its power play has produced one goal in 12 chances during that losing streak.

* Montreal defenseman Eric Weinrich, who has a league-worst minus-15 plus/minus ratio. He's getting close competition from Tampa Bay's Karl Dykhuis, who is wobbling along at minus-14.

* The Chicago Blackhawks, who ended an 0-8-2 streak by defeating Nashville last Tuesday, then promptly fell apart again in losing to the Kings and Ducks by a total of 9-1. They haven't scored an even-strength goal in four games, having scored on the power play four times and short-handed once in the last four games.
