But Evason spoke the truth about La Polis.

“Kaprizov is one of the best players in the NHL,” said defenseman David Savard. He is very intelligent and has a great bond with Zuccarello. They are easily visible on the ice. But they also served strange purposes. I didn’t hate our match. »

Marc-Andre Fleury also kept his momentum going by blocking 34 shots to earn his fourth straight win.

A dangerous game

The Wild scored three second-half goals, two of them in 140 seconds, to deal a huge blow to the visitors, who had dominated the first half. In the final minutes of the match, CH gained new energy after Nick Suzuki’s goal on the power play, but it was too late.

In the visitors’ locker room, Savard and Suzuki had a gesture from Marco Rossi over their hearts. Late in the game, the Austrian found himself in a tricky position near the bench and hit Juraj Slafkowski.

“At 4-1, it’s not the time to do that, Savard stated. I found it flat. Slafkowski was in a vulnerable position and the Wild already had the win in their pocket. »
