BOSTON (AP) _ Hartford Whalers center Doug Jarvis had his record consecutive-game streak halted at 964 when he didn't dress for Sunday night's National Hockey League game against the Boston Bruins.

The 32-year-old Jarvis, a veteran of 13 NHL seasons, played in Hartford's first two games. However, he was left unprotected in the recent preseason draft and wasn't claimed by another team.

Jarvis claimed the consecutive-game streak last season when he played in his 915th game, breaking the record established by Gary Unger, then with the Atlanta Flames, in 1979.
