Evening of four points (including three goals) for Jack Roslovic

Evening of four points (including three goals) for Jack Roslovic

Relatively busy day in the NHL yesterday. Like the majority of Saturdays, basically. Here’s a summary of what caught the eye.

1: Jack Roslovic defeats the Wings almost single-handedly

Do you remember the trade of Patrik Laine to Columbus which also sent Pierre-Luc Dubois to Winnipeg? Note that Jack Roslovic joined the Finn to get a new start in the NHL.

It all started well for Roslovic with the Blue Jackets, but it didn’t take long for things to calm down. He’s a good hockey player, sure. But he will never perform at the level that expectations were placed of him.

Nevertheless, that does not prevent him from having some offensive flashes like the one he had yesterday. Roslovic had fun against Detroit by scoring his second career hat trick and adding an assist in the win.

His three goals:

2: Malkin reaches 700 assists

For a while, Evgeni Malkin was one of the most dominant players in the National League. And we had proof of that yesterday, when it reached a fairly significant plateau.

The Russian got an assist on his team’s first goal in the 6-3 loss to the Capitals, his 700th career.

When we look at the names of active players who have achieved the feat, we see that he is in (quite) good company!

3: Andrew Copp is having a blast in New York

Who knew the acquisition with the most points since the NHL trade deadline would be Andrew Copp?

Let’s just say I wouldn’t have put a $20 on it.

However, Copp is acclimatizing quite well to his new environment since his arrival there. He scored (again) to bring his total points to 11 in 9 games, and brought victory to his team last night.

In addition, his winning goal officially allowed the Rangers to qualify for the playoffs:

4: Trevor Zegras continues to ridicule his opponents

Trevor Zegras probably has to be the most frustrating player to play against in the NHL. But, oh how talented he is!

Zegras got his hands out again yesterday against the Golden Knights, who made one of the best games of the year.

I let you appreciate to give you an idea. He is incredible :

5: 30 wins for Demko

Tatcher Demko is a goalkeeper that I really like. And this, since he was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks.

His elegant style is obvious and the main interested party is seriously starting to become one of the good goalkeepers in the league.

He got his thirtieth win of the season last night against the Sharks. He became the sixth Canucks goaltender to achieve the feat!

A lot of

– We love to hate him, but we would all take him on our team.

– Beautiful game orchestrated by the Panthers.

– The captain!

– Wrong sport.

– The shot of the evening belongs to Anton Lundell.

– And to Brian Boyle. The two goals are practically identical!

– Magnificent.

– I laughed a lot when I saw this montage.

– Four-point night for Noah Hanifin.
