Daily NHL Recap

Evander Kane makes the recap photo again this week

Good night of hockey, scoring first didn’t mean you won, and several one goal games… oh, how about Evander Kane?

Calgary Flames 1 at New York Islanders 3 – Calgary scored the first goal of the game but it was the Islanders who got the win scoring three straight. New York tied the game up in the second period than got two goals in the third to get the victory.

Philadelphia Flyers 4 at Pittsburgh Penguins 2 – These two teams came into this contest tied for first in the Atlantic division. Pittsburgh scored the first goal and Philadelphia answered with the next three before the teams traded third period goals.

Toronto Maple Leafs 3 at Carolina Hurricanes 4 F/OT – Carolina strikes first and Toronto ties it up (see a theme tonight friends?) before the third begins. The Leafs went up 3-1 midway in the third period before the ‘Canes scored twice in just over a two minute stretch in the period. Having scored the Hurricanes second goal, Eric Staal put in the game winner in overtime.

Montreal Canadians 3 at Tampa Bay Lightning 4 – Montreal didn’t score first in this game, but after trailing 1-0 the ‘Habs scored three straight. Trailing 3-2 heading into the final period, the Lightning struck for two goals (get it) to complete the comeback. Steven Stamkos scored in the first for his 23rd  goal this season.

Edmonton Oilers 3 at Minnesota Wild 4 – So we’re confused here at the WTHII offices because A) the Wild finally won a game B) they scored more than two goals C) they scored three goals in a period. We’re only mildly kidding, but having been on a slide, the feel good story of the first couple months need to get it going again. This game was decided in the second with Minnesota outscoring Edmonton 3-1, I’ll point out that Edmonton did score first.

Los Angeles Kings 0 at Winnipeg Jets 1 – Both teams started back-up goalies but they both get credit for 60-plus minutes of shutout hockey. The Jets in OT scored a minute and nine second in when Evander Kane put in the game winner, which was his third in his last two games.

Columbus Blue Jackets 4 at Dallas Stars 1 – This is definitely the WTHII shocker of the night with the BJ’s going into Dallas and winning by three goals. Rich Nash scored twice in the game accounting for half of the Columbus offense.

Phoenix Coyotes 2 at Colorado Avalanche 3 – Colorado took a 2-1 lead to the second in which Phoenix tied the game up late in the second. The Avs got the game winner from Gabriel Landeskog midway in the third as they continue their run of good place.

Vancouver Canucks 5 at Anaheim Ducks 2 – Vancouver lead 4-0 heading into the third and both Sedin’s scored goals. Daniel Sedin scored two and Henrik Sedin scored the Canucks first goal of the game.
