While the Montreal Canadians could not stop another team, no one can stop their former captain Max Pasioreti these days. The man now wearing the colors of the Golden Knights of Vegas shone the red light twice in his own 4-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday at the TD Garden.
The visitors already had a 1-0 lead, thanks to Shia Theodore when Passioretti first came out. He first received a precise throw from Chandler Stephenson, who slipped a Bruins goaltender Jeremy Sweemann who cheated between the pads.
Number 67 came back in the second engagement. Using his devastating wrist shot, he defeated Swayman again, giving his team a four-goal lead.
Since the campaign began, Passiority has hit the target 12 times in 11 games. With his two goals in the evening, he extended his streak to seven with at least one goal and nine with at least one point. He has also scored two or more points in his last four games.
Jonathan Marchesalt had another win for the Golden Knights, while goldsmith Robin Lehner had 23 saves on the win.
The senators reclaim the sacred fire
In Florida, the Ottawa Senators seem to have regained their 2020-2021 end-of-season broadcasts, scoring their fifth win in six games and scrapping the Panthers 8-2.
Visitors made life difficult for Florida goalkeeper Spencer Knight, who conceded a total of eight goals in 38 shots.
In the win, Drake Batherson became the senators’ most productive skater with four points, with Josh Norris and Connor Brown blocking the score sheet three times each.
Anton Forsberg signed the victory with his 33 savings performance for his part.
Com Atkinson makes life harder for the Devils
In Philadelphia, courtesy of Cam Atkinson, the Flyers gave the New Jersey Devils a 6-1 correction.
The Pennsylvania forward moved the strings once each period to complete his hat-trick. Registered in the second period even when the spectator favorites a person playing less.
Atkinson finished his game with four points, including an assist on the net from Oscar Lindblom. Justin Braun and Travis Sanheim also lined up for the Flyers.
At the other end of the ice, goaltender Carter Hart gave up only once on a throw from PK Subban in the second period. Hart still scored 26 runs in the win.
