Since the day Mark Bergwin chose not to match the Hurricanes ‘hostile bid against Jesperi Kotkaneemi, many fans have been eager to see what the former Canadians’ No. 15 will look like this season in Carolina.
The pattern is very thin, we agree, but “KK” seems to be inspired by his new uniform.
During his first warm-up match with “Cannes”, Finn scored a stunning goal against Lightning in the first half, completing a beautiful staging by Vincent Trochek.
Then, during the opening engagement, Trochek and Terawainen completed the third line, which Kotkaneem used on the wing, and then assisted on a goal.
Two points in twenty minutes. Tell me … it starts well!
Overall, “KK” finished the game with two shots and three hits on the net, spending 15:45 on the ice. The Hurricanes won 3-1.
Total increase in sabers
In Columbus, Buffalo Sabers started the game in the third period to beat the Blue Jackets 5-4.
Oliver Bjorkstrand was a real poison in the first half for goalkeeper Aaron Dell, beating him twice in four minutes, including once in the power play. 40 minutes later, the home team scored 4-1.
Linus Weissbach then took matters into his own hands, scoring two assists before scoring the equalizer with just 54 seconds left in regular time.
In the shootout, Jaber Quinn was the lone scorer, completing the Sabers strong effort.
Defenders Jake Bean and Vladislav Gavrikov also had a strong game for the Jackets, scoring three and two points respectively.
Panarin performed a show
At Madison Square Garden, New York Rangers forward Artemi Panarin assisted on his three goals with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins.
At the beginning of the second period, Anthony Bitteto was the Russian first partner for success. He got his second assist on Capo Caco’s goal four minutes later to give the crowd a 2-0 lead.
Panarin himself moved the ropes, at the same time achieving the winning net, with one minute left in the second period.
Jack Studnikka and Urho Wakaninen replied for visitors. The first and the second also collected help on the net.
Beauvilleer signaled overtime
In Philadelphia, Quebezer Anthony Beaville ended the game with a 3-2 win over the Flyers to give the New York Islands a win in overtime.
The “Islands” striker is also a partner in two of his family’s successes, the goals of Adam Pelech and Noah Dobson.
