Players of the Night

  • Alex Ovechkin set some nice marks and probably deserves consideration for the highlights of the night and factoids of the night with his two goals, but this post already covers that. You’ll probably enjoy what you see there, unless you’re a Hurricanes fan.
  • Other two-goal outputs are worth mentioning: Matt Cullen is closing in on 700 points, Oliver Bjorkstrand looked dangerous for Columbus, Eric Staal and Blake Wheeler also found the net twice.
  • Josh Manson collected three assists of his own. Manson already has 20 points this season, setting a new career-high in 41 games.
  • A bunch of goalies generated shutouts. Jonathan Quick (32 saves), Ryan Miller (31), Marc-Andre Fleury (29), and Andrei Vasilevskiy (29) blanked opponents on Tuesday.

Highlight of the night: Carter Hutton’s ridiculous save.

Fight of the night?


Fleury’s 29-save shutout helped the Golden Knights beat the Nashville Predators 3-0, helping Vegas set yet another record for a team in its “inaugural” season.

And, again, Ovechkin’s work checks off a lot of boxes.
