The Colorado Avalanche striker Gabriel Landescog has been named the brightest star of the National Hockey League (NHL) last week, the organizers of the tournament inform. The second star was awarded to Jesse Saros, the goalkeeper of Nashville’s “Predators”, and the third best was awarded to Tom Hertl, a striker for Sharks at San Jose Balzer.
The Landeskog scored four goals in three matches last week and played three times, helping the Colorado team win three. He first assisted Keila Macar in scoring an advantage when he beat the Blackhawks of Chicago 4: 3. The winner of the 7: 1 win over the Winnipeg Jets then scored four points (3 + 1). It was the fourth hat-trick of his NHL career, as well as the sixth career game to score four points.
In the final match of the week, the Landescoges scored a goal and helped the Avalanche win a 5: 4 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. In total, the striker has played 26 games this season, in which he scored a total of 14 goals and scored 21 assists. Saros, on the other hand, helped Nashville win three times, repelling 125 of 131 opponents ‘shots or 95.4% of opponents’ shots throughout the week.
This season, Saros has defended the Predators goal in 29 matches, 19 of which have been won, the best in the league. He is also the eighth best goalkeeper in the league with the lowest average number of goals conceded (2.21 goals per game) and the ninth among goalkeepers with the highest rebound percentage (92.9%).
Meanwhile, Hertls garnered six performance points (4 + 2) last week, with Sharks winning two. In both successes, he scored the winning goal, and in a victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, the striker scored his fifth NHL career hat-trick.
