The Boston hockey players lost 1: 2 to the troubled Vancouver after two thirds, but in the third part they managed to turn the development of the match with two goals and won 3: 2. Pastrňák decided on the Bruins’ victory in the power play in the 57th minute, when he scored the seventh goal of the season after Brad Marchand’s cross pass through the goal area. The Czech gunner scored the eighteenth point and thanks to more goals scored, he is ahead of Jakub Voráček in the lead of the Czech hockey players.
The Havířov native also took part in the action that preceded the Boston equalizer. He hit the goal post of Jaroslav Halák with a shot from his favorite place in the left circle. In the ensuing scrum, Patrice Bergeron and Nick Foligno tried unsuccessfully to reach the finish line, but the puck got to Marchand, who hit a half-exposed goal.
“I thought Pastrňák scored a goal, so I stopped playing for a while. When I noticed that the boys were still fighting, I found a place closer to the goal and the puck happily bounced back to me,” Marchand described the confusing situation, which was announced. the first star of the match. The Canadian forward among the best players of the match was supplemented by his teammates from the first attack Pastrňák and Bergeron.
Vancouver has lost the ninth of the last ten games due to a failed third part and is penultimate in the Western Conference table. Boston holds the tenth position in the East. “It’s frustrating from our point of view. We didn’t let them go for almost two-thirds, but in the third part, their first formation hit out of nowhere twice and turned the game around. That’s how they play, they can take chances, and that’s why they traditionally get in the playoffs. far, “said Canucks scorer Conor Garland.
Nečas’s assistance was not enough for Carolina
Carolina lost to Washington on 2: 4 and failed the third of four games. In the third part, the Hurricanes erased the two-goal loss, but did not look after the end of the match, in which they collected twice. The equalizer for 2: 2 was prepared for Nina Niederreiter by a great return pass Nečas. However, Capitals responded with a goal in the 58th minute by Dmitrije Orlov and John Carlson gave the final form of the result to the empty net.
One goal for Washington was also scored by Alexandr Ovečkin, who is chasing Jaromír Jágr in the historical order of shooters. The Russian gunner scored his 749th goal in the NHL after Orlov’s fantastic pass, and he is losing only 17 hits to the Czech legend.
Toronto, whose jersey was played by David Kämpf for over 18 minutes, defeated Anaheim 5: 1 and extended the series of outdoor wins to seven matches. Thirty-nine hits led the Maple Leafs to equalize club record goalkeeper Jack Campbell. “Everyone knows exactly what to do and they follow it 100%. The boys know their roles and everyone can sacrifice for the team,” said teammate Campbell.
The Maple Leafs have won ninth of the last ten games and are second only to Washington in the Eastern Conference table. Ondřej Kaše and Petr Mrázek were again missing from the Canadian team.
San Jose hockey players also rejoiced in the victory, beating Chicago 2-0 thanks to two goals by Swiss forward Tim Meier. The best Czech scorer in the NHL, Tomáš Hertl, did not score in the match, as did Radim Šimek and Dominik Kubalík.
Also in the duel of New Jersey with Philadelphia, the Czech hockey player came out empty-handed. Pavel Zacha, who shares with Hertl the position of the best Czech gunner, was close to his ninth goal of the year at the beginning of the third period, but his shot from the left circle ended only on the crossbar.
The Brno native did not have to regret his shooting failure. The Devils scored three goals in the third half and defeated the Flyers 5: 2.
