After failing to score in the first 15 games of the season, Sebastian Aho has now found the back of the net in back-to-back-to-back-to-back games.
The Finnish forward opened the scoring less than two minutes into tonight’s game against the Isles. As if coming up with the first goal of the game wasn’t enough, Aho also picked up the primary assist on Teuvo Teravainen‘s tally less than two minutes later, and Teravainen’s second of the game in the second period.
He now has nine points in his last three games and two periods, which is pretty remarkable for a guy that couldn’t buy one earlier on this season.
The start was less than ideal for New York, but they managed to salvage the period with an incredible goal.
You expect Islanders players like John Tavares, Jordan Eberle, or Mathew Barzal to score highlight-reel goals, but it was defenseman Nick Leddy that scored a beauty in the first period of Sunday’s game against Carolina.
It was Leddy’s fifth goal of the season, but probably the most impressive one of the bunch.
The Hurricanes currently lead 4-1 after two periods.
