The Toronto Maple Leafs suffered their fifth defeat in their last six outings at the Canadian Tire Center on Sunday night, surprised by the Ottawa senators’ excellent start to the game.
Its dominance at the top of the Northern Division in the formation of the Queen City melted away with its poor performances. She is now just two points ahead of the Winnipeg jets.
In today’s match, the senators hit early. In the sixth minute of the game, Brady Takachuk and Ryan Dingingel hit the target in six seconds. The game was over for goaltender Michael Hutchinson, who faced only three shots.
Inspired by his teammates Drake Batherson scored two goals in less than a minute in the second period. This is the 22-year-old’s 10th and 11th wins this season. In his first net, young Tim Stuttgel showed off his talent by delivering an excellent pass, which greatly contributed to the scorer’s job.
Before “Sense” Net, Joey Dockard made 34 savings to sign off on his first victory in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was defeated by Jack Hyman (twice) and William Nylander.
First goaltender Matt Murray had to defend the cage of senators for this duel. During the warm-up, two Stanley Cup ring holders rolled over the top of the body.
Kevin Mandolesse quickly dressed instead of Dockard. This is the first time Quebec has worn a uniform in the NHL.
As the Calgary flames return to action on Friday, the leaves will have several days to find solutions. The club in Federal Capital will receive a visit from the Vancouver Canucks on Monday evening.
