New York – Forward Pavel Zacha helped the Boston hockey players to a 4:3 overtime win over Calgary with his 15th goal this NHL season. The match did not work out for Flames goalkeeper Daniel Vladař, who conceded two goals from five shots and was replaced after twenty minutes at a score of 0:2. Dominik Kubalík was the only scorer for Detroit in the match with Ottawa, the Red Wings lost a heavy 1:6.
Calgary clearly outshot Boston in the first period, but went to the cabins with a two-goal deficit. Defender Dmitrij Orlov beat Vladaar twice, who made his mark in the Bruins jersey for the first time since being traded from Washington. The Flames erased the two-goal deficit and took the lead in the 50th minute. Five minutes later, however, Zach equalized and sent the game into overtime. In it, Charlie McAvoy decided Boston's eighth win in a row.
Even before McAvoy, David Pastrňák had the decisive goal on his stick, but his independent escape was neutralized by goalkeeper Jacob Markström. The Czech gunner did not score and extended his wait for a goal to three games. With 42 hits, he remains the second best scorer in the league.
Boston goalkeeper Linus Ullmark once again drew attention to himself with a great performance. The front-runner for the Vezina Trophy for the NHL's best goalie stopped 54 Flames shots and broke the club record for most saves in one game.
“It was fun. Obviously as a team you don't want the opposition to push you and shoot 60 times on goal, but I didn't mind. The main thing is that we got two points and ended our trip with a fourth win, ” said the twenty-nine-year-old Swede, who dominates both main goaltending statistics in the NHL.
The Bruins played their third game in four days and it showed in their performance. Calgary outshot them 57-20, but even that wasn't enough to stop the hot team. “The guys showed how much they believe in themselves. The Flames outplayed us in every way, but we didn't panic for a moment. Despite the dominance of the opponent on the bench, there was no one who didn't believe that we could win here,” said Bruins coach Jim Montgomery.< /p>
Detroit failed to score in Ottawa even for the second time. This time too, the Red Wings took an early lead, but the rest of the match belonged to the home Senators, who, thanks to a 6:1 win, caught up with their opponent on points. Kubalík scored the 17th goal of the season and confirmed his position as Detroit's second best scorer.
The Red Wings lost defenseman Filip Hronko during the second period. According to coach Derek Lalonde, the Czech defender started with a slight injury in the upper part of the body, which did not allow him to continue in the match.
On the other hand, Jakub Vrána, who spent the last two matches in the stands as a substitute, returned to the lineup. On his 27th birthday, he played just over 13 minutes in which he did not make an impact. He is still waiting for his first point after returning from the NHL/NHLPA assistance program.
Arizona hockey players dominated the battle of teams from the bottom of the Western Conference table. Thanks to 23 saves by Karel Vejmelka, Chicago beat Chicago 4:1 and succeeded after two losses. The Blackhawks started without Patrick Kane, who was traded to the New York Rangers.
Los Angeles striker Anže Kopitar flashed with four goals. Thanks mainly to his contribution, the Kings defeated Winnipeg 6:5 in overtime and moved to second place in the Western Conference table. Jets defender Josh Morrissey, who with 63 points is the second most productive guard in the league, also scored four points in the game.
Columbus' win on the ice of Buffalo was led by Erik Robinson, who led the Blue Jackets to a 5-3 victory with his first hat trick in the NHL. Columbus scored for the third time in a row, but still remains the worst team in the competition.
Thanks to a successful first period, Florida won the derby with Tampa Bay and continues to lose three points to the playoffs. Eighth Pittsburgh also managed its match, beating Nashville 3:1. The elimination fights are moving away from St. Louis, which lost all five games after trading Vladimir Tarasenko and Ryan O'Reilly. In Tuesday's duel, they lost to Seattle 3:5.
