Latvian Goalkeeper Shilov Shines in Second Consecutive Game as Canucks Secure Playoff Spot

Shilov, protecting the home team’s goal for the second game in a row, dealt with 14 opponents’ shots.

“I think he played well. He let in [ceturtos] goal because there was an opponent in front of him, but he tried to look over the opponent’s shoulder. The goalkeeping coach told him to stay low and cover the bottom of the goal in those situations. In general, it was good,” he said after the match

The Latvian goalkeeper played only four games in the NHL this season, in which he allowed an average of 2.47 pucks, saving 88.1% of shots. Meanwhile, in the American Hockey League (AHL) for the Abbotsford Canucks, Shilov has allowed an average of 2.74 pucks in 33 matches and has managed 90.7% shooting.

The Canucks, who have already secured a spot in the Stanley Cup, are second in the Western Conference with 105 points in 79 games.
