NHL Rewind: Jack Hughes puts on a show, Bruins make history with home dominance

It’s time to put a bow on another weekend in the NHL. We saw Jack Hughes solitarily illuminate the Capitals, and the Boston Bruins broke an NHL record by extending their prolonged house winning streak.

Let’s take a closer take a look at a few of the league’s top plays from the weekend too the leading stories.

Goal of the weekend: Jack Hughes checks out the bank

Few gamers in the NHL are as hot as Jack Hughes nowadays (more on that later), and he placed on a program versus the Capitals on Saturday. On among his objectives, Hughes strolled down the left wall and gunned a shot off the side of Charlie Lindgren’s mask and into the web for his 10th objective of the season.

I attempt not to reward luck when it concerns giving out this prominent honor, however I do not believe this was luck. Based on the replay, it’s quite clear that Hughes was going for that top-left corner by Lindgren’s ear, and he struck it. When you’re hot, you’re hot.

Robbery of the weekend: Connor Hellebuyck swats Seguin

The video game in between the Stars and Jets was among the very best recently (more on that later on, too), and while it was a high-scoring affair, the goaltenders kipped down their share of highlights. That brings us to Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck.

With Winnipeg up 3-2 in the 3rd duration, the Stars called a power play shot off the post. The rebound popped out to Tyler Seguin in front of the web, and he was looking at a 24 square foot opening. Just as Seguin went to tap in what he believed would be among the most convenient objectives of his profession, Hellebuyck connected his paddle and whacked away Seguin’s shot.

With the Jets winning in overtime, that conserve loomed big.

Bruins safeguarding their den in historical style

The Bruins have actually made NHL history by winning their very first 12 house video games of the season, and the record-breaking triumph was available in amusing style. On Friday, the Bruins dealt with a 2-0 deficit versus the Carolina Hurricanes, and it appeared like their 11-game house winning streak would concern an end.

That’s when seasoned center David Krejci scored a set of objectives to connect the video game at 2-2, and it would go to overtime from there. In the additional frame, the Hurricanes provided the Bruins a power play, which ended up being a bad concept. Brad Marchand moved a pass to David Pastrnak on the left circle, and the Czech sniper ripped a slapshot past Pyotr Kochetkov to win the video game.

The Bruins have an opportunity to extend their house winning streak to 13 video games on Tuesday night, when the Lightning concerned town.

Three-objective returns in New York and Florida

No lead is safe in the modern-day NHL, and the Rangers and Panthers discovered that out the difficult method on Saturday.

In their video game versus the Oilers, the Rangers took a 3-0 lead into the 3rd duration and stopped working to get back at a single point in the standings. Just over 10 minutes into the duration, Oilers novice Dylan Holloway scored his very first profession objective to connect the video game.

With simply over 2 minutes left in guideline, Leon Draisaitl scored a power play objective to provide the Oilers a 4-3 win. The groans in Madison Square Garden may have been heard in deep space.

Over 1,200 miles away in Florida, the Panthers held a 4-1 lead over the St. Louis Blues in the 3rd duration. Much like the Rangers, the Panthers attempted to weather a barrage of scoring possibilities unsuccessfully.

With under 4 minutes left in the 3rd duration, Vladimir Tarasenko fired house a great pass from Ivan Barbashev to level ball game at 4-4. Florida did handle to get a point, however Jordan Kyrou rounded off a great deke in overtime to win the video game for St. Louis.

If you’re questioning how frequently 2 groups blow three-goal leads in the 3rd duration on the exact same day, the response is seldom. Saturday was simply the 6th time in NHL history it has actually occurred, and the last time it took place was on Jan. 31, 2012, according to NHL Public Relations.

Jets win Central Division face-off

The match of the leading 2 groups in the Central Division did not dissatisfy. Down 4-2 late in the 3rd duration, the Stars pulled the goalie prior to Jason Robertson played hero with back-to-back tallies to connect the video game.

The 2nd one was accompanied by some debate since Jamie Benn knocked off the helmet of Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck. Normally, the play would be whistled dead, and the objective would be reversed since of goaltender disturbance. However, authorities ruled that Benn was pressed into Hellebuyck by Winnipeg defenseman Josh Morrissey.

However, it didn’t take wish for Morrissey to compensate his error. In overtime, Morrissey got a breakaway and capitalized his chance to win the video game.

Jack Hughes ratings hat technique… and gets design points

Hughes was among the gamers the Devils required to take the next action in order for the entire franchise to do the exact same. Through 22 video games this season, Hughes has actually been among the very best gamers in the NHL. The Capitals were the most recent group to suffer Hughes’ rage. 

During Saturday’s video game, Hughes scored a hat technique, and he acquired some design points while doing so. On his very first objective of the video game, Hughes flew into the offending zone with speed, deked out Charlie Lindgren and tucked the puck into the web off of Lindgren’s pad from listed below the objective line.

That wasn’t the only time Hughes would utilize a piece of Lindgren’s devices to score an objective. You’ve currently seen Hughes’ 2nd objective of the video game, which he fired off Lindgren’s helmet, since it was the objective of the weekend above. Hughes’ 3rd objective, to finish the hat technique, was a little bit more simple.

The Devils would go on to win the video game, 5-1, and Hughes now has 4 objectives in his last 2 video games.
