Jakub Vrána took part in the Capitals cannonade with one assistance, Vladař collected all eight goals. Vaněček destroyed 124 of the 130 shots in the last four starts. On the other hand, TJ Oshie, Lars Eller and Conor Sheary overcame Vladař twice, with his second goal in the match ending the cheeky penetration of Vrána in the 25th minute and increasing to 4: 0.
The ruler caught 25 shots, including ten attempts by Alexander Ovechkin, who did not score in the match. David Pastrňák and Jakub Zbořil scored one negative point, David Krejčí two for participating in the ice during the goal scored and collected. “It was a tough match for Dan, but I believe it will help him in a way because he had to deal with awkward situations,” said Boston coach Bruce Cassidy, who missed Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo and Matt Grzelcyk.
Nosek came close to leveling the score 51 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. The Czech striker has been productive lately, scoring thirteen points (6 + 7) in the last seventeen matches. “He’s a professional, he works honestly and he plays great now. He’s straightforward and valid in every zone. He’s now become a threat to his opponents,” said one of Vegas’s leaders, Jonathan Marchessault, to Noska, who has a 7 + 7 record this season and is approaching its maximum from the year 2018/19 (8 + 9).
Winners’ goalie Marc-André Fleury caught all fourteen shots and recorded his 66th clear account in his career, finishing the legendary Patrick Roy in 15th place in the NHL history chart. At the same time, Fleury scored the 484th victory in the regular season and equaled Ed Belfour’s record in fourth place in the standings.
Libor Hájek, with the assistance of Filip Chytil, scored his second goal of the season, but lost to the Islanders 2: 3 in overtime with the New York Rangers. The Rangers lost 0: 2 after the first period, but equalized in the second. Hájek scored the contact goal in the middle of the match, whose shot from the blue line went through a bunch of players to the goal.
The Czech defender scored after eighteen matches and was also on the ice with the goal of another defender Brendan Smith at 2: 2. Ryan Pulock broke the tie in 61:13. Kyle Palmieri supported the Islanders’ victory with one goal, his first since the exchange from New Jersey.
New Jersey striker Pavel Zacha did not finish the Pittsburgh match due to injury. Zacha resigned from the match at the beginning of the second period and coach Lindy Ruff did not have more detailed information about his health after the match. New Jersey lost to Pittsburgh 2: 5 without a Czech striker. Jake Guentzel flashed a hat-trick.
Hesitation was not used by Philadelphia, who lost to Buffalo 3: 5 at home in the Eastern Division, which holds the last place in the playoffs. The flyers led 2: 0 and 3: 2 over the worst team of the competition, but the guests turned the match around in the last three minutes. The team around Jakub Voráček loses four points, just like the Rangers at Boston. The Bruins also have two good matches.
Colorado won 4: 1 in Anaheim and again replaced Toronto. Gabriel Landeskog signed with the victory with a goal and two passes and rounded the number of his points in the NHL to 500 (214 + 286).
