NHL: summary of other January 2 games in the NHL

A brace from Nicolas Roy was instrumental in a 3-2 victory for the Vegas Golden Knights over the Colorado Avalanche.

Tied 1-1 after one period, the Knights saw the Quebec center take matters into their own hands at 2e twenty. Roy scored twice rather than once in the middle period to give the Knights a 3-1 lead.

Mikko Rantanen closed the gap in 3e as the puck narrowly penetrated. The overhaul was necessary and its 25e of the season has been confirmed.

Nathan MacKinnon was the other scorer for the Avalanche.

Stone got an assist on Michael Amadio’s goal to break the record for longest road streak with a point he shared with Jack Eichel (November 2022), Max Pacioretty (2019-20) and Paul Stastny (2018-19). Stone has three goals and six assists during that streak.

It was a memorable night for Roy, who scored twice in a regular season game for the second time in his career. It was his 200th game in the NHL.

Logan Thompson earned the win. He stopped 27 pucks. On the other side, Alexandar Georgiev made 25 saves.


Plucked Ducks


The Philadelphia Flyers signed a 3e straight win in a 4-1 dominance over the Anaheim Ducks.

Joel Farabee and Morgan Frost made it 2-0 after a period of play. Travis Konecny ​​and Scott Laughton also scored in 2e and 3e period, respectively.

Samuel Ersson stopped 28 shots to improve to 3-0-0 in three career starts since replacing Carter Hart (concussion) last week. Ersson lost his chance for his first career shutout with 39.6 seconds left when Ryan Strome beat him.

Farabee, Konecny, Kevin Hayes and Noah Cates all had two points in this encounter.
