Hat trick for Auston Matthews

Hat trick for Auston Matthews

Only four games were played in the NHL Monday night. Here is a summary of what caught the attention during this rather relaxed evening.

1: Matthews keeps scoring

Is there anyone who will be able to stop Auston Matthews, honestly?

The Leafs player is scoring goals as if nothing had happened from a jolt and we saw why he is the best sniper in the National League last night, when his team was in Tampa to face the mighty Lightning.

The American striker once again wowed the gallery… with another hat trick. It’s already his fourth of the season, by the way.

Matthews’ three goals now mean he has 47 goals in his last 47 games. He is on another planet, really:

2: Score 60 points for Anze Kopitar

It’s hardly ever talked about, but Anze Kopitar is one of the most underrated players in the NHL. The credit he deserves isn’t necessarily always given to him, but on the ice, the Kings captain is dominant.

The latter faced the Flames in a game that was thrilling from the very beginning to the very end. The Flames emerged victorious by a score of 3-2 courtesy of a big game from Johnny Gaudreau.

Adrian Kempe was the lone scorer for the Kings and Kopitar was instrumental in his two goals. This has allowed him to reach the 60-point plateau since the start of the season, which puts him in a rather interesting line-up of players:

3: Tarasenko also picks up his 60th point

Vladimir Tarasenko is one of the players I really liked when I was younger. His wrist shot has always been one of the most threatening in the NHL, but the main player has had to miss a few games in recent years due to a multitude of injuries.

This season is going well for the Russian. He picked up his 60th point of the season in a resounding 5-1 win over the Coyotes and would be heading for his best career tally had he played in every game for his team thus far.

This is the sixth time that Tarasenko has reached the 60-point plateau in a season, which places him tied for third in Blues franchise history for this purpose:
