Washington Capitals rookie Tom Wilson gets pie’d by Alex Ovechkin

Toronto Maple Leafs: Phil Kessel embraces fighting

Phil Kessel, Toronto Maple Leafs

You could have predicted Phil Kessel will score 60 goals, 120 points and win the Art Ross this season, and some people would’ve said, “yeah, I can see that happening.” Because Phil the Thrill is a scorer. Whether he can…

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery beats up unwilling combatant Braden Holtby

Last night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals wasn’t pretty on the scoreboard, and it wasn’t pretty on the ice. With the winner a foregone conclusion, a line-brawl erupted, sparked by a Wayne Simmonds hit. Flyers goaltender Ray Emery took it upon himself to do his part in fighting with his team. The netminder raced down the ice to engage Caps goaltender Braden Holtby in one-on-one combat. However, Holtby seemed uninterested in partaking. Emery wailed on him anyway.

The Capitals won the game 7-0 courtesy of three goals by Joel Ward, two by Nicklas Backstrom, and one apiece by Troy Brouwer and Jason Chimera.

WATCH: No John Scott in the NHL’s top hits of the week

The NHL Network released their ‘Top 10 Hits Of The Week’ video this morning, and to no one’s surprise, John Scott was not featured. When it comes to body checking in the NHL there is a fine line between what is legal and what is deemed worthy of suspension. Scott’s hit on Eriksson was a blindside headshot. The hits displayed in the NHL Network’s countdown are good solid shoulder on shoulder or shoulder to chest assaults.

10 goals in 10 games for Alex Ovechkin

Alex Ovechkin scored his 10th goal of the season tonight against the Edmonton Oilers. That’s 10 tallies in 10 games for the Great 8. Obviously, the math is simple here. If he continues to score at a goal a game pace he will finish the season with 82. That’s a lot to expect, especially in an Olympic year, however, if anyone can hit the 80’s in goals scored, it’s probably Ovechkin.

Ovechkin’s goal was a lethal product of his incredible shooting ability. The Caps’ captain finished a set play off the draw, drilling a laser beam top shelf on bewildered Oilers’ goaltender Devan Dubnyk. Final score, Caps 4 Oilers 1. Ovechkin goal courtesy of the NHL YouTube Channel

 

WATCH: Sabres’ Nikita Zadorov score first NHL goal

6’5″, only 18 years of age, Nikita Zadorov of the Buffalo Sabres looked like a giant scoring machine on his first ever NHL goal against the defending Eastern Conference champion, Boston Bruins.

The Sabres may not be winning now (1-9-1) but the future is bright if the young guns can materialize into solid NHLers at the same time over the next few seasons.

In a game that by all accounts should have ended 8-0 Bruins, the Sabres youngster made the most of some open ice in the Bruins’ zone, powering a backhand through goaltender Chad Johnson for his first career NHL goal.

Watch Zadorov’s first of what could be many NHL goals.

 

 

Nikita Zadorov was drafted 16th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in 2013.
