The 20-year-old center had nine points in three games for the Spitfires, including a hat trick and two assists against Sudbury, and a goal and three assists against Owen Sound. Great hockey player, mediocre pumpkin carver. Such is life.
It’s hard to beat two hat tricks in the same week. In fact, with his three goals against the Nashville Predators, Tavares became the third player in team history to record two tricks in three games, the last player to do so being the incomparably named Ziggy Palffy in 1996.
Congratulations, John Tavares: You are the best hockey player in the world, at least for this week.
Calgary opened the scoring 2:08 into the second. Flames defenseman Brett Kulak, who had just stepped onto the ice, kept the puck in at the blue line and fired a quick shot toward the net that Ferland neatly deflected past Philipp Grubauer.
Elite Kids Jordan Hicks Jersey With top goalie Braden Holtby getting the night off after beating Edmonton 5-2 on Saturday, Grubauer made his fourth start and finished with 36 saves.
Grubauer’s best save kept the score 1-all in the third. He jabbed out his glove to rob Mark Giordano after he was set up by Gaudreau on a rare 4-on-1 rush.
Game Youth Tim Anderson Jersey We gave up a lot of chances, but also we created a lot of chances. I think overall it was a decent game for us, Grubauer Womens Tony Watson Jersey said. Things are coming together and the groove is coming together a little bit closer and closer each game and I think you see it on the ice.
At every level, Keller has thrived. He broke Phil Kessel’s career points record with the U.S. National Development Team Program. Led BU in all three scoring categories as a freshman. And now has four more points than any other Coyote, while leading their forwards in even-strength ice time (15:51), one centerpiece of their ongoing rebuild seemingly locked into place. Care to guess what word Tocchet uses to describe Keller? What I love is his swagger, he says. The good thing is you can give him crap every once in awhile and he can take it.
