Arizona Coyote (9-22-3)
I’m not the owner of this year’s World Almanac, but there must have been a full moon at the Gila River Arena on Thursday night. Coyote recorded seven games in a row without a win against its division’s rivals. Chicago Blackhawks, It definitely felt like the most complete game they’ve played since they defeated Anaheim Ducks I worked overtime on December 17, 2021.
That night’s howling hero came in the form of Swedish winger Johan Larsson. Johann Larsson scored three hat tricks and led the team to victory 6-4. Larsson was recently activated from the disabled list (IR) in late December.
His handiwork looked a bit like this:
It’s a vigorous game and both teams have swapped controls for the stretch of the game. When Larson’s third goal, the Sky Netter, finally arrives at 19:31 in the third period to avoid a comeback and win the game by two goals, Yotes holds the lead late. I was forced to do that. Travis Boyd also scored goals and two assists, and the team played 2-5 in power play. this is, Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
Centerman Jay Beagle will be on the long list of IRs in Arizona this week and will be out for the long term after having surgery for a lower body injury.
Chicago Blackhawks (11-18-5)
The curse that plagued Yotes with seven consecutive losses may now be in the Central Division. The Blackhawks have lost six of the last six after losing in Arizona on Thursday night. It’s a bad juju — and don’t tell me that hockey isn’t a superstitious sport.
They also dropped 5-1 against Calgary Flames 4-3 in extra time to Colorado on Sunday and Tuesday. Chicago prepares to turn around after moving 1-7-2 to start the season, thanks to goalkeeper Marc-André Fleury scoring 8-4-0 online and winning his 500th career. But I haven’t found a way to put it together since the New Year.
Nevertheless, Chicago Cubs Fans can be quite excited about these two gems from the defeat on Thursday night, which is usually the off-season of baseball.
In HR news, future Hall of Fame goalkeeper Fleury is riding a wave of rumors as the Blackhawks’ former hopeful season becomes even more dire.And the road won’t be easy as they are preparing to face Fleury’s ex-team, the first place in the Pacific Ocean. Vegas Golden Knights January 8th.
Eric Gustafsson, Brandon Hagel, Sam Rafati and Kevin Lankinen are participating in the COVID protocol, with Gustafsson and Hegel showing positive just one hour before the match on Thursday.
Colorado Avalanche (20-8-2)
There are bad stripes and there are good stripes. Avalanche, one of the three Central Division teams that has won three games in a row, could be the hottest following Thursday’s latest 7-1 bombardment of Jets.
Avalanche also won against Anaheim Ducks (4-2) on Sunday and the Blackhawks (4-3, OT) on Tuesday. The “goal of the year” in question took place that night at the United Center. If you were already asleep at SportsCenter No. 1 that night, you would:
The overtime winner is one of Macar’s 14 goals in the 2021-22 season. If he and Avs continue to be positive, the defense may be very well involved in the conversation with the Norris Trophy candidate.
On Thursday, the performances of captain Gabriel Landescog (3 goals), superstar Nathan MacKinnon (1 goal, 4 assists) and goalkeeper Darcy Kumper (34 saves) were not overlooked.Avalanche with Auston Matthews Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday.
Avs may have to do it without Jack Johnson, a defense who suffered a lower body injury to the Blackhawks, and Valerini Chushkin, a forward who is injured daily with an upper body injury.
Dallas Stars (16-12-2)
The Dallas Stars scored by Joe Pavelski, who slipped through Florida Panther Sergei Bobrovsky on Thursday night’s shootout. It was before Stars goalkeeper Brayden Holt stopped both attempts on the other side of the ice and gave Dallas a 6-5 victory. They didn’t even need to count Jason Robertson’s second shootout, but nevertheless Texas hockey took over the business when returning from a 16-game layoff.
They were Joe Meets Joe, Pavs, and Jumbo Joe Thornton. The latter 1,700 games were ruined by the star’s victory. One is trimmed with “Victory Green” instead of teal. It was still the magic of San Jose.
Even the shark killer who returned from the COVID protocol flashed some tricks.
Stars, who have fought throughout the season with the postponement of the game that spurred COVID and the fluctuating protocol list in their most recent win, scored 34 points, eight points behind the wildcard spot. Apparently. The team also has several games and has a positive trending star player Dyad: Pavelski (7 points in the last 4 games) and Robertson (12 points in 9 games). The star has an empty COVID protocol to finally boot.
Minnesota Wild (20-10-2)
After losing five games in a row during the holiday season, Wild stopped bleeding and won 3-2. Boston Bruins On Thursday, but lost his arm at Star Forward Cyril Caprizov.
The “real” $ 45 million man supported his right arm by scoring points before heading to the locker room during the second period of the game. It’s too early to say how serious the injury is and how long he’ll be out, but sophomore Winger has never seen the best position to get him out of the game.
After that, the focus was on the wild rookie Matt Bordi. Matt Bordi was looking for his first NHL points in the form of goals that would be the winner of the final game.
Bordi, who was ranked 12th overall in 2019, was one of the two newcomers who made his NHL debut in Minnesota, and the other was Marco Rossi (2020 draft, 9th overall). Recent calls have been due to injuries and COVID protocols that have avoided the wild since early December. Nick Buyugstad, Joel Ericsson Ek, Jared Spurgeon and Kam Talbot have been injured among those on the go. The same is true for the COVID protocol Brandon Duheim and Jordan Greenway.
Nashville Predators (22-11-2)
Predator has won three straight games, 10-1-1 in the final 12, three times ahead of second place and is at the top of Central with 46 points. St. Louis blues.. They defeated the Golden Knights 3-2 on Tuesday and made a mini-road trip to the Pacific Ocean. Los Angeles kings Thursday is 4-2.
Goalkeeper Juuse Saros recorded the best 46 saves of the season against Kings. Forward Philip Foshberg, who has been the subject of trade rumors in recent years due to the half-finished results of the Predators, has increased his value by scoring 6 points in the last three games.
The cunning off-wing player was supposed to play for Team Sweden at the next Winter Olympics, probably before the NHL pulled the player out of the 2022 Beijing Olympics. Still, Forsberg’s dominance is just one of several reasons Predes has to move forward. Other reasons are as follows: As mentioned earlier, a quarterback power play by Roman Yoshi, who scored twice in the first period against LA and stellar goaltending.
St. Louis blues (20-10-5)
Bruce had a relatively late week after the fireworks at the 2022 Winter Classic on January 1st. They defeated Wild 6-4 in an outdoor game, and Bruce’s center Jordan Kirou scored two goals and two assists.
Entering the week, they fell to a meteor 5-3 Pittsburgh Penguins.. Despite their recent rise as Central Division heroes in December, they seem to be nothing more than NPCs in the January story of Penguins / Crosby. However, Kyrou is still on the board and his allegations are being voted on by an all-star vote.
Bruce Washington Capitals I won 5-1 last night and was within the points of the 1st place Predator.
Winnipeg Jets (16-12-5)
It was the House of Darkness, the House of Light of Jets. They had a quality victory over Bruce and the Golden Knights, but probably easily lost to their biggest enemy in the avalanche. First-line center Mark Shyfree has scored points for four consecutive games, while veteran Paul Stastony was injured Thursday due to an undisclosed injury. Also, forward Jansen Harkins and defense Dylan Demero were missing.
The Jets Big Boy was out to play, so it wasn’t without some sights that week. Team Point Leader Kyle Connor, Everyone (Stud in Another Central Division of All-Star Ballot):
Their next game will be played a week from now, so the cups are getting cold and stuck reading tea leaves to see where the jet is actually standing.They entered Dan Rosen Super 16 Power Ranking Wednesday 16th, before the final loss to Avalanche. But this feat is in line with the many rises in the rankings of its peers in the central sector.
Needless to say, this sector seems to be becoming more competitive at a stretch, and Jets needs to keep burning Cheefele, Connor, etc. brightly to stay relevant.
