In the NHL yesterday there were three contests…

  • First, the Tampa Bay Lightning registered a franchise-record 55 shots on goal to defeat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-3. Tampa Bay is 5-1-1 on the season thus far and is 6-0-1 in the last seven contests against Chicago.Tampa Bay recorded 33 shots on goal during the second period, the highest total in a period since the 1997-98 season.

    Brayden Point had his first game-winner of the season and the 15th of his career in 157 games played. There are only three other players who have more since debuting in the NHL in the 2016-17 season.

  • Johnny Gaudreau registered his 300th NHL point in his 320th game last night as the Calgary Flames went on to rout the New York Rangers 4-1.Gaudreau would score twice to reach the milestone and helped lead the Flames to a record of 5-3-0 on the season. Calgary won at Madison Square Garden for the first time since the 2008-09 season.

    Gaudreau, a fourth round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, became the fourth player from that draft class to reach this milestone as well. He also became the sixth player to reach 300 career points.


  • The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-2, after a pre-game ceremony for the retirement of Paul Kariya’s number at Honda Center. There is more on Paul Kariya’s number retirement in the NHL news section.


Yesterday’s results:

  • Tampa Bay 6, CHICAGO 3
  • Calgary 4, NY RANGERS 1
  • Buffalo 4, ANAHEIM 2


In the NWHL yesterday…

The Minnesota Whitecaps went on to defeat the Metropolitan Riveters 6-2. This would also mark a season-sweep of the Riveters in the second half of games in New Jersey.

Whitecaps G Amanda Leveille registered 26 shots and continued to dominate the Riveters all game. Leveille is 4-0-0 against Metropolitan this season and 9-4-0 in 13 matchups all time against the Riveters.

The Whitecaps trio of Allie Thunstrom, Katie McGovern, and Joanna Curtis all made the scoresheet.

The only possible time that the Riveters will face the Whitecaps again is if there is a potential playoff matchup.

Minnesota would jump out to a 3-0 lead before the Riveters would notch their first goal of the game with less than 2:30 left in the second period, as the Whitecaps were dominating the Riveters throughout the first 30 minutes of the game. The Whitecaps would also find a recipe of success in this contest by shooting and scoring.

Four different scores for the Whitecaps would define the dominance in this contest.

The Riveters look to bounce back from back-to-back losses on Saturday when the Riveters visit the Boston Pride at Warrior Ice Arena.

For Minnesota, they look to extend their 4-0-0 start when they have a back-to-back slate of games next weekend when they face off against the Buffalo Beauts at TRIA Rink.
