The NHL slate saw one home team triumph and two away victories in matches played on the night between Sunday and Monday. Not really an overly interesting evening, players who have to score goals and were not in a very good mood.
Pittsburgh Penguins 3, Vegas Golden Knights 0 The Pittsburgh Penguins delivered a stellar performance against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Western Conference's still-leading team. The Penguins' defense was exceptional, holding the Knights scoreless throughout the game.
Aleks Nedeljković, a Serbian-American goaltender, shone in the Penguins' net, making 37 saves. The Penguins scored one goal in each period, which was enough to secure a convincing victory. Jared McCann, Kris Letang, and Sidney Crosby scored for the Penguins.
Saint Louis Blues 3, Anaheim Ducks 1 In the other match of the night, the Saint Louis Blues achieved a crucial victory over the Anaheim Ducks. The Blues took control of the game early, scoring two goals in the first period through Torey Krug and Pavel Buchnevich.
The Ducks managed to pull one goal back in the second period, but the Blues held on to their lead and added an empty-net goal in the final minutes to secure the win. Buffalo Sabres 3, Chicago Blackhawks 2 The Buffalo Sabres also claimed road victory, defeating the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Sabres took an early lead through Victor Olofsson and extended it in the second period with a goal from Tage Thompson. The Blackhawks fought back, scoring two goals in the second period through Tyler Johnson and Kirby Dach, but the Sabres responded with a goal from Eric Johnson in the third period to secure the win.
Overall, the night of NHL action was marked by defensive dominance and a couple of surprising upsets. Not a very interesting evening, but the continuation of the NHL season is coming soon. Here are the upcoming NHL matches for November 21, 2023: Florida Panthers vs Edmonton Oilers Tampa Bay Lightning vs Boston Bruins Dallas Stars vs New York Rangers Nashville Predators vs Colorado Avalanche Arizona Coyotes vs Los Angeles Kings Vancouver Canucks vs San Jose Sharks
