The Tampa hockey players recorded their second consecutive victory against the Philadelphia Flyers in just five days. The current champions, after the triumph in Pennsylvania, after taking penalty kicks, celebrated tonight in their Amelia arena, with the result 4: 0.
Zach Bogosian found the guests in the 3rd minute, and at the beginning of the second period, Steven Stamkos increased the lead to 2: 0. By the end of the match, the net of the young Carter Hart was shaken by the legendary Corey Perry (the debutant in the Lightning jersey) and Alex Barre-Boulet in the 48th minute.
In addition to the goal, Stamkos also had two assists. Andrei Vasilevski recorded the first "shut-out" of the season, with 34 saves. The legendary goalkeeper from Tjumenj, the winner of two Stanley trophies, kept the net intact in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the 27th time.
Tampa is with its eleventh victory this season, with 25 points in the sixth position of the Eastern Conference, while Philadelphia fell to tenth place after the fourth defeat in the last five matches. The Dallas hockey players defeated the hot Edmonton with 4: 1, which continued with good games in the second half of November.
The Popular Stars also recorded their fourth triumph in the last five matches, so they are now in 12th place in the Western Conference. In the victory against "Oilers", the triple assistant, the Swede John Klingberg, then the young goalkeeper Jake Oettinger, as well as the man in shape, the Finn Roope Hintz, shone.
With the sixth goal in the last six matches, he found the visiting goalkeeper Stuart Skinner in the 11th minute. Just five minutes later, once again with a player more on the ice, Dallas took the lead with 2: 0, a goal by Jason Robertson.
Denis Gurianov in the second and Luke Glendening in the third period scored goals for the hosts, while the only goal for the guests was the work of Ryan McLeod in the 31st minute when the scoreboard showed 3: 1. The most efficient tandem of the League, Draisatl (one-shot) - McDavid (three shots), completely failed in this match, although it must be admitted that Dallas coach Rick Bowness did a great tactical preparation for the match.
The best team in the West, Calgary Flames, defeated Chicago 5: 2 in the last match of last night's program. At the beginning of the 55th minute, the scoreboard read 2: 2, and then the host broke through the wall in front of the goal of the legendary Marc-Andre Fleury First, young Matthew Tkachuk, with the wholehearted help of guest defender Seth Jones, brought his team to a 3: 2 lead, and then Trevor Lewis and Johnny Gaudreau hit an empty net, for a convincing 5: 2.
It was also the fourth consecutive victory of the Flames, who are now the best team in the West, and Chicago missed the opportunity to reach another point and move from the 14th position in its conference.
