Calgary started its cannonade in the first period and after 12 minutes drove 20-year-old goalkeeper Nico Daws out of the goal. However, his colleague Wedgewood immediately scored another goal and the Flames players left the locker room at 4: 0 after the first period.
Among other things, Andrew Mangiapane, who leads his teammate Elias Lindholm and Alexander Ovechkin from Washington with seven goals, took part in the successful entry into the match with seven goals.
For a long time it seemed that the Czech goalkeeper could keep a clean account in the match, but he lost him in the middle of the match due to his hesitation during the pass. Papvel Zacha then had a relatively simple task.
From the right throw-in ring, he lowered into an exposed cage to 1: 4. At the end of the match, he added his second goal in a game without a goalkeeper. With the stop, he set the final score at 3: 5 and improved this year’s balance to four goals and one assist.
Tampa against Pittsburgh cut a series of three defeats in a row. She struck for the first time after 31 seconds of the second period, when Brayden Point hit. She decided on the victory within ten seconds after the middle of the match. First, the Czech forward Ondřej Palát increased to 2: 0 and then Rayen McDonagh also scored.
The Czech striker prevailed from a quick counterattack and with the 128th goal in the colors of Lightning in the basic part, he became independent in tenth place in the club table of shooters by Václav Prospal.
The score took the final form in the last three minutes of the third period. Palát scored a point for a pass when he pushed the puck in the middle zone into the drive of Alex Killornvi, who increased it to an empty goal to the final 5: 1 for Tampa.
Nashville defeated San Jose at home 3: 1 and the biggest star of the match was Juuse Saros, who stopped 28 shots. The key intervention was taken by the Finnish goalkeeper in the first period at 1: 0, when he covered the escape of Tomáš Hertl. The Czech forward did not succeed with the backhand loop, which he ended up among the concrete. “Hertl didn’t score, but he was active and played a great match,” said San Jose coach Bob Boughner, one of the team’s leaders.
Seattle lost to Montreal 5: 1 and scored their first home win in club history. Brandon Tanev, who broke the draw 1 – 1 in the 16th minute and increased to a three-goal difference in the middle of the match, was responsible for two goals. Winnipeg won 4: 3 in Anaheim, although he lost at the beginning of the penultimate minute. But then Nikolai Ehlers turned the score with two goals in nineteen seconds.
