Top-5: Trevor Zegras had to leave the match with a minor injury

Big, even huge night in the NHL last night. Beautiful goals, injuries, body checks… We saw almost everything.

Let’s start with the 10-game slate:

1: Zegras leaves the game in pain

There’s a lot of talk about Trevor Zegras right now because there arerumors that he might be leaving the Ducks.

The Ducks were in action last night against the Predators, and all eyes were on the out-of-sorts forward…

But unfortunately, Zegras hurt himself in a fall and had to leave the game without being able to return.

He had a funny fall and fell heavily on the ice.

It looked pretty painful, too:

Let’s hope it’s not too serious in his case… But the club’s head coach, Greg Cronin, wasn’t very reassuring after the match.

He told reporters on the spot that the star forward was “going to be out for a while”, which is not a good sign for the future.

2: Matthew Tkachuk has fun against the Blues

When you watch the Panthers play, you notice that they have the same style of play as last year.

And it works, because all the guys are willing to work hard.

But the dangerous thing about the Panthers is that any player can get up at any time. Yesterday, it was Matthew Tkachuk’s turn to carry the club on his back, and he did it wonderfully.

The American finished his night’s work with four points, but his hat trick will be remembered above all.

Three great goals, too:

I really like the way the Floridian team is behaving.

It should, once again, be able to go a long way in the playoffs this season.

3: Linus Ullmark has to leave in overtime

You really don’t see this very often in the NHL or in the field hockey world in general.

The Bruins and Coyotes were battling it out for an entire field hockey game, when the score was 3-3 after three periods…

And in overtime, the sky fell for the Bruins when Linus Ullmark was injured.

The veteran had to leave the game, and Jeremy Swayman came on as backup:

Swayman stopped the only shot he faced in overtime, and it was enough to give his club a chance of winning the shootout.

But it was Nick Schmaltz who finally put an end to this crazy game and played the hero for the Coyotes:

4: The cursed Senators…

Nothing goes right in Ottawa.

The club lost 6-3 to the Calgary Flames yesterday and has now lost its last four games.

Jacques Martin’s team has just one win in its last ten road games… A statistic that can’t please many people in Ottawa.

But the team continues to play as it did under D.J. Smith. The players are inconsistent, there are (far) too many mistakes being made on the ice and the system is all wrong.

It’s said over and over again… But it’s a shame, because on paper, the Senators are such a great club.

5: Todd McLellan sends a message to Pierre-Luc Dubois

The slide continues for Pierre-Luc Dubois in Los Angeles.

The Kings did everything they could to get him this summer, including sending Alex Iafallo and Gabriel Vilardi to Winnipeg…

And the experiment hasn’t worked out so far for the Quebecer in California.

How bad is it? It’s gotten so bad that yesterday, Todd McLellan decided to send his center-forward one hell of a message.

Dubois was used on the team’s fourth trio, spent just 14 minutes and 32 seconds on the ice… And still found a way to finish the game with a -2 record in his team’s loss.
