The Anaheim Ducks hockey players defeated the Washington Capitals on their ice after overtime 3: 2 and recorded their eighth consecutive triumph in the NHL, with which they climbed to the leading position in the Western Conference.
Ducks' new celebration was brought by Trevor Zegras with a goal in the fifth minute of overtime. Fowler previously brought the hosts to the advantage in the fourth minute, then Pilon equalized to 1: 1 in the 46th, and Zegras returned the advantage to Anaheim with his first goal in the match.
The Capitals won in the overtime thanks to Wilson's goal in 58, but that did not save them from defeat. Anaheim Ducks have 23 points in the leading position of the West, one more than the Edmonton Oilers, who lost to the Winnipeg Jets 5: 2 in the Canadian clash.
The Capitalists are third in the East with 23 points. The leading place in that conference still belongs to the Florida Panthers, after the triumph over the New York Islanders 6: 1 and the break of a series of four consecutive defeats for a total of 900 victories in the history of the franchise.
Huberdeau in the seventh, Lomberg in the 15th, Verhaeghe in the 17th, and Hornqvist in the 19th brought a huge 4-0 to the Panthers by the end of the first section. In the continuation, the Islanders' net was shaken by Ekblad in the 34th and Vatrano in the 57th.
The honorary goal for the guests was scored by Palmieri in the 35th. Florida has 25 points in the first position, one more than Carolina, who beat Vegas in Nevada 4: 2. The Islanders are 14th with 12 points. In other matches: New York Rangers - Montreal 3: 2, Philadelphia - Calgary 2: 1, Pittsburgh - Buffalo 1: 2, Toronto - Nashville 3: 0, Minnesota - San Jose 1: 4, St.
Louis - Arizona 2: 3, Dallas - Detroit 5: 2. It can be said that we had a chance to watch a lot of exciting matches with a handful of good chances and goals that really show how interesting the NHL is to watch. For now, Florida and Anaheim are showing the most maturity and seem to want to achieve the goals they set before the season.
The leading place in that conference still belongs to the Florida Panthers, after the triumph over the New York Islanders 6: 1 and the break of a series of four consecutive defeats for a total of 900 victories in the history of the franchise.
Of course, the season is long and a lot of things can change, but so far these two teams are tactically very strong, but also playful, and we will see if they can continue with these games.
