Players of the night:
Teravainen picked up two goals and an assist in Carolina’s 4-2 win over the New York Islanders, while Aho had a goal and two helpers. It was a positive weekend for the ‘Canes as they were able to pick up victories over Buffalo and New York on Saturday and Sunday.
William Karlsson, Vegas Golden Knights:
The Golden Knights, who are currently second in the Pacific Division, took down the division-leading Kings, 4-2, thanks to a pair of goals from Karlsson in the first period.
Just a hunch, but Kings goalie Jonathan Quick is probably going to want this one back:
Highlights of the night:
Nathan MacKinnon was up to his old tricks, as he helped the Avs come back to beat the Red Wings. MacKinnon registered the primary assist on Carl Soderberg‘s game-tying goal with under a minute remaining in regulation. He also added this incredible goal in overtime:
Who knew that Ducks defenseman Josh Manson had these kind of moves?
Factoids of the Night:
King Henrik is moving up the all-time list:
Hey, shutouts are never easy, so the fact that King Henrik has 63 of them is pretty impressive. He had to make a key save on Mike Hoffman in the first period:
Ducks goalie John Gibson faced a lot of rubber. He turned away 50 of 52 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
Suspensions of the Night:
Sunday was a big night for the NHL’s Department of Player Safety, as they handed out two suspensions.
Hall of Fame Tribute of the Night:
The Ducks players wore Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne’s jerseys during the pre-game warmup. As you probably remember, both players entered the Hockey Hall of Fame last week.
I prefer the white “Kariya” jersey, but that’s just me.
