On Friday, we saw three games in the NHL without Slovak participation. The home teams enjoyed the winnings, we saw a hat-trick, raids and two super fast goals.
AHL: Tchaikovich came out empty-handed this time
FLA – DAL 7: 1
Bennett, Huberdeau led the Panthers to a clear win over the Stars
Without Andrei Seker, who entered the quarantine, Dallas tried to confirm his form with a sixth victory in the last seven duels. However, he was beaten on the ice of Florida. Sam Bennett scored three goals and added an assist, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 shots and the Panthers won 7: 1 to win the third consecutive match and the seventh of the last eight, in which they at least scored each time. Jonathan Huberdeau scored a goal and three assists, Anthony Duclair scored a goal and two assists, and Gustav Forsling and Carter Verhaeghe added after the goal. Rooper Hintz scored the only Stars goal at the start of the third period. Jake Oettinger collected four goals from 17 shots, Anton Chudobin three from 22. Florida became the first team to win 20 matches on home ice this season. She only needed 23 duels for that. In the post-expansion era (1967/68), only Anaheim (2013/14), San Jose (2008/09) and Philadelphia (1986/87) were faster with 22 duels. Huberdeau scored in the seventh game in a row and scored 50 points in the season in the 37th match. Only Pavel Bure managed to do it faster in the club history – in 34 duels of the 1999/2000 season. Jamie Benn played his 900th match.

Kaprizov two-point on his return to action
Kirill Kaprizov scored two assists on his return to help Minnesota win 7-3 over Anaheim. Mats Zuccarello scored two goals and an assist, rookie Matt Boldy a goal and an assist. The two scored in the third period within four seconds, setting a new club record in a situation where a goalkeeper was in the opponent’s goal with both goals. In club history, two faster goals fell only once – in 2004 in 3 seconds, but one into an empty goal. Kevin Fiala, Ryan Hartman, Victor Rask and Matt Dumba also scored the third victory in the series. Kaapo Kahkonen faced 42 shots, of which he was subdued by Max Comtois, Derek Grant and Trevor Zegras. Anthony Stolarz scored six goals from 29 shots and was replaced in the third period by Lukáš Dostál, who stopped 12 of the remaining 13 shots. The California team, which lacked Troy Terry, lost the third game in the last four. The duel was not completed by the guest Sonny Milano.

Kadri decided in the raids to extend the home series Colorado
Kadri’s name was the only one to succeed in separate raids to decide Colorado’s 4: 3 win over Arizona, which managed to turn the situation from 0: 2 to 3: 2 in the match. Mikko Rantanen, Tyson Jost and Andre Burakovsky, who also added assistance, helped to return to the winning track. Devon Toews collected two. Pavel Francouz covered 23 shots and pulled the puck from the goal after the goals of Clayton Keller, Johan Larsson and Shayne Gostisbehere. Phil Kessel assisted twice and Ivan Prosvetov performed 44 interventions. While the Coyotes lost the second match out of three, the Avalanches celebrated their sixth victory in the last seven duels and stretched the points series in seven games. Since November, they have been pulling a 13-match winning and 15-match points series at home. Ryan Murray was injured at home.
