Top-4: 28 minutes of playing time for Jonathan Drouin
For the second day running, four NHL games were on the bill.

Here are the results and highlights:

1. Jonathan Drouin used a lot

Jonathan Drouin, who is on a happy streak, finally has his coach’s trust.

His time in Colorado may have revived his career. Yesterday, he didn’t collect a point, but he was Jared Bednar’s third most-used forward.

28:16 of playing time.

For the past few games, the Quebecer has been playing in a trio with Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon.

Speaking of MacKinnon, since the beginning of the year, he and the Avalanche have played 22 games at Ball Arena.

And in each of those 22 games, MacKinnon has picked up a point. Yesterday, he continued his streak of home games with at least one point.

He’s just one game away from matching Joe Sakic’s record.

On Wednesday, Colorado hosts the Golden Knights.

In yesterday’s game against Boston, the home team won in a shootout.

Valeri Nichuchkin put an end to the debate.

On the losing side, Brad Marchand passed Rik Middleton for the most points in Bruins history.

2. Canucks guns have fun against Rangers

The Canucks were in Times Square to take on the Rangers. It was a duel between two of the NHL’s best teams.

Vancouver prevailed 6-3.

The victory included some fine goals for the visitors.

First, Elias Pettersson doubled his team’s lead.

Nils Hoglander also put on a show.

After 40 games, the Canucks now have three 50-point scorers.

3. Penguins-Flyers rivalry at its peak

The big rivalry dominating the Metropolitan Section is Penguins-Flyers.

Last night, the two Pennsylvania teams faced off in an emotionally-charged match.

Rickard Rakell first broke the ice after just a few seconds. He’s doing well these days.

A disturbing scene ensued in the middle of the ice.

Scott Laughton and Sidney Crosby collided.

And as has always been the case, scrimmages broke out.

Midway through the third period, when Pittsburgh had a comfortable lead, Evgeni Malkin went with the classic argument.

“Look at the scoreboard:

Final score: 4-1. Cutter Gauthier must be happy.

4. Marc-André Fleury makes a spectacle of himself in defeat

Despite his team’s 4-0 loss to the Stars, Marc-André Fleury gave it his all.

He didn’t get past Patrick Roy in a game of spectacular saves.

First, he robbed Sam Steel.

Then he was lucky, but he controlled Joe Pavelski’s shot well.

Finally, he made his best save with the help of a sublime move.

The Quebecer ended the game with 16 saves on 20 shots. Not a great night overall, despite his fine saves.


– Two too many men on the ice at the same time.

– Dangerous move.

– Shutout by Matt Murray of the Stars.

– Top scorers from the previous day.


– Busier night in the NHL tonight.
