Adam Fox Three assists, and Vincent Trochek He had a goal and an assist for New York (3-1-0), which was 3 vs 4 in strong play. Igor Shesterkin Make 18 saves.
“I think we’ve seen in the past several years that special teams in the playoffs and late season are one of the biggest factors in the teams that win the Stanley Cup, the teams that win,” Trochek said. “If we can continue to be successful in the power game, fine-tune our penalty kicks and fine-tune our defensive play, I think we’re in the right place.”
Trevor Zegras record and Paful Regenda And the troy terry Both had assists for Anaheim (1-2-0), who had lost 7-1 at the New York Islanders on Saturday and allowed 17 goals in their first three games.
John Gibson He allowed five goals in 34 shots before being withdrawn after the second half. Anthony Stollers He made eight saves in relief.
Ducks coach Dallas Aikins said Gibson was slapped by Zibanegad in the second half, which was a factor in his failure to return to the third game 5-2 late.
“He had something going on in there with his body and just the result, as the result, he didn’t think it was a real smart move to get him back in there,” said Eakins.
New York led 2-0 in the first period on power goals. Troshik scored the tailgate from a pass from Zipanjad at 7:34, and Zipanjad beat Dx forward. Max Jones Down the right-hand circle scored a recap from Trocheck at 13:10.
“We’ve got a lot of pucks back and that’s usually when things open up to a power game,” Zibanjad said. “And I think we have a good set, two sets, of being able to make those plays when they’re there.”
Frank Vatrano He made it 2-1 at 15:48, and the Zegras tied 2-2 at 1:34 of a second.
“Their only goal in playing the power in the first was a gift, losing the ultimate responsibility, and in the second we gave them two gifts, I mean the ultimate gifts,” said Eakins. “So we give them three easy goals and lose by two. That’s what’s disappointing because there’s an improvement in our game in a number of areas and then they all get blown up by missed responsibilities.”

“You look at the teams that won in this league, whether it’s Colorado or Tampa or St. Louis, they never won because they were skilled, they won because they worked,” Eakins said. “They work and they are unrelenting with it. It doesn’t matter if they have the tweak or they don’t have the tweak, they work. It’s part of our development process here and our growth process is when we don’t ‘we have to work even harder.'”
Max Comtowe He scored in one time from the right circle at 5:33 of the third to make the score 5-3, but Shesterkin hit back-to-back on Zegras with his left board and Adam Henrik From rebounding with his glove to maintain his lead with two goals 11 minutes before the end of the match.
