Top-5: Alex Ovechkin ends 14-game scoreless streak
There was no shortage of action yesterday in the NHL, as 24 teams were in action.

Here are the results and highlights:

1. Alexander Ovechkin puts an end to his bad streak

Alexander Ovechkin is clearly not at his best right now.

Prior to last night’s games, he hadn’t found the back of the net in his last 14 games.

But that bad streak is a thing of the past, because it was he who gave his team victory in overtime.

The two teams battled it out.

In overtime, Elvis Merzlikins and Tom Wilson battled it out.

Obviously, Washington had the last word.

2. Four-goal night for Nathan MacKinnon

The Senators are in a slump. And the coaching change hasn’t changed anything so far. The team has lost its last six games.

Jacques Martin lost his first two games in his second stint at the helm. Yesterday, he lost to the Avalanche by a score of 6-4.

He and his crew were dominated by Nathan MacKinnon. MacKinnon increased his streak of games with at least one point to 17. He also scored four goals.

He finished his night’s work with five points, no less.

Ottawa led 4-2, but Colorado scored four unanswered goals.

MacKinnon’s second goal of the game was the 300th of his career.

On the losing side, Josh Norris scored in his fourth straight game.

3. Nine goals for the Sabres

On Tuesday night, the Sabres were badly outplayed by the Blue Jackets, 9-4.

Last night, the Sabres decided it was their turn to win by scoring nine goals. Final score: 9-3, against the Leafs.

Ilya Samsonov had a difficult outing.

He was kicked out of the game after this goal by Tage Thompson :

Auston Matthews, meanwhile, scored his 26th goal of the season and still leads the NHL in scoring.

Meanwhile, Max Domi gets insulted for his lack of teeth.

At least he scored his first “overseas” goal in a Toronto uniform.

4. 200th win for Jacob Markstrom

Jacob Markstrom missed a few games recently due to injury.

Now he’s back and in top form.

Yesterday, thanks to a 25-save performance, he blanked the Anaheim Ducks.

It was also his 200th NHL victory.

In his 17th NHL game, young teammate Nick DeSimone opened the scoring.

The winning goal was his first career net.

5. Juuse Saros: franchise’s second-winningest goaltender

The Nashville Predators are a relatively young franchise.

So it’s only natural that the franchise’s goaltenders don’t have the most wins. Especially when a goalie like Pekka Rinne has been playing for so long.

Despite his young age, Juuse Saros became the second-winningest goalie yesterday in a 4-2 win over Philadelphia.

With the 162nd career win, he surpassed Tomas Vokoun.

The Finn made 29 saves on 31 shots.

Among the forwards, Filip Forsberg, Philip Tomasimo and Colton Sissons all stood out, collecting two points each.


– The Oilers didn’t mess around.

– He’s not moving away from Auston Matthews.

– MacKinnon leads the charge.


– Four duels on the bill.
