Summary of NHL games, Saturday March 23, 2024

 

The New York Islanders and Patrick Roy were tired of losing and it was the Winnipeg Jets who bore the brunt of their anger on Saturday.

New York scored six goals in the first 40 minutes to claim a 6-3 victory.

The Islanders thus end an ugly streak of six losses which could very well cost them a participation in the playoffs. There are 12 games left to play for New York.

As for the Jets, they suffered a second consecutive loss.

Cal Clutterbuck scored the first two goals of the game

Mathew Barzal scored a goal and had two assists. This is the 27th time in his career that he has had a three-point game and the 104th game of more than one point.

Hudson Fasching also contributed a goal and two assists.

Others in the win came from the sticks of Anders Lee and Kyle Palmieri.

For the Jets, Vladislav Namestnikov, Mason Appleton and Cole Perfetti, who had been left out of the last four games, provided the response.

Semyon Varlamov made 33 saves in front of the Islanders goal while Connor Hellebuyck, who started the game, and Laurent Brossoit were tested 39 times.

 

Marc-André Fleury haunted by Jordan Kyrou

Jordan Kyrou scored a hat trick and Brandon Saad scored the game-winner in overtime to help the Saint Louis Blues defeat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Saturday afternoon.

Only one point in the standings separated these two teams before Saturday afternoon’s clash. With the victory, the Blues take a two-point lead over the Wild and move within two points of the Vegas Golden Knights and the last place giving access to the playoffs.

After 60 hotly contested minutes between these two division rivals, extra time also had plenty of pace. Marco Rossi had a golden chance to give his team the victory, but Jordan Binnington narrowly made the save with his shoulder. The game quickly moved to the other side of the ice and Saad beat Fleury between the pads to seal the outcome of the game. Visibly frustrated, Fleury smashed his stick on one of his posts before retreating to the locker room.

The Wild were up by one after two periods. Already the scorer of a goal, Kyrou scored two unanswered goals to complete his hat trick and give the Blues the lead again. Brock Faber scored with 5:09 left in the third to force overtime.

Pavel Buchnevich took advantage of Kyrou’s hat trick to boost his personal record with a haul of three assists. Jake Neighbors scored his 25th goal of the season in the first.

With two goals, Rossi became the second rookie player in Wild history to reach the 20-goal mark. Kirill Kaprizov, who had two assists on Saturday, is the other to achieve the feat as a rookie. Marcus Johansson was the other scorer for Minnesota.

Binnington signed the victory behind a performance of 30 saves. Fleury had a difficult game stopping only 23 of the 28 shots aimed at him.

Blues defenseman Nick Leddy played his 1,000th career NHL game.

 

Forsberg stands out with his fists and a big goal

Filip Forsberg scored the only goal of the game with 5:14 left in the third period and the Nashville Predators secured at least a point in their 17th straight game by beating the Detroit Red Wings 1-0.

This is the longest unbeaten streak in regulation time in Tennessee team history, which is 15-0-2 during it.

In the second period, Forsberg also threw down the gloves to Moritz Seider in a fight that set the Bridgestone Arena on fire.

Juuse Saros made 22 saves to record his third shutout of the season and 23rd of his career. The Predators also blanked the Florida Panthers 3-0 in their last game on Thursday.

Forsberg scored in a fifth straight game and the Predators solidified their hold on first place among drafted teams in the Western Conference with 88 points.

Alex Lyon stopped 32 pucks for the Red Wings, who had won their previous two games. They remain in last place giving access to the playoffs in the East, but the Washington Capitals are one point behind with two games in hand.
