Connor Hellebuyck surrendered three goals on 25 shots in a 6-3 win against the Canucks on Monday night.

With the win, Hellebuyck is currently on a four game win streak in which he has only allowed eight goals on 119 shots. Certainly tonight’s effort wasn’t on par with that of his last few outings, but it was enough as his offense took matters into their own hands and provided the 25-year old goaltender with 3-1 and 4-3 leads heading into the first and second intermissions. In 2018-19, Hellebuyck has managed a 9-5-1 record with a 2.74 GAA and a .913 save percentage.

Jacob Markstrom faced 48 shots on Monday night against the Jets and let five get past him on his way to a 6-3 loss.

Although he was responsible for a brutal giveaway which directly lead to a 1-0 deficit early in the first period, the loss cannot be pinned on 28-year old goaltender as he faced 23 shots in the first frame alone. The Canucks trailed 4-1 midway through the game and attempted a comeback, but only managed to come within a goal of tying the game. The Canucks injury woes may have caught up to them as they have now dropped five straight decisions and Markstrom’s record has now fallen to 7-7-2 with a 3.38 GAA and an .897 save percentage.

Nikolay Goldobin registered a goal and an assist in a 6-3 loss to the Jets on Monday night.

Goldobin assisted on Elias Pettersson’s first period powerplay goal to tie the game at one apiece and later scored a goal of his own late in the second period to bring Vancouver within one. The 23-year old Russian forward has amassed three goals and 13 points in 2018-19 and now has points in consecutive games.
Nov 20 - 1:03 AM

Patrik Laine scored three goals in a 6-3 win over the Canucks on Monday night.

It was Laine’s second hat trick of 2018-19 and the young sniper is now up to 11 goals and 14 points this season. He scored the Jets’ last three goals, with his first of the night standing as the eventual game-winner. The 20-year old winger cemented the victory with a goal with just over five minutes remaining in the third period and followed that up with an empty-netter to complete the hat trick. It should be noted that Kyle Connor assisted on all three of Laine’s goals and scored one of his own in the win. Bryan Little and Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets.
Nov 20 - 12:57 AM

David Rittich faced 22 shots and allowed two goals in a 7-2 win against the Golden Knights on Monday night.

It was an easy night for Rittich as his offense took all the pressure off the 26-year old goaltender as he faced only 13 shots through two periods of action, and in which his team had to a 7-0 lead. Rittich has played well this season and could see more regular starts moving forward. Rittich is now 7-1 in 2018-19 with a 1.93 GAA, a .931 save percentage and a shutout.
Nov 20 - 12:41 AM

Malcolm Subban allowed seven goals on 32 shots in a 7-2 blowout loss to the Calgary Flames on Monday night.

The Flames scored all of their seven goals within the first 25 minutes of the game and jumped out to a 7-0 lead. Despite allowing so many goals early on, Subban completed the game. The 24-year old goaltender has struggled this season is now 0-4 this season with a 4.04 GAA and a .859 save percentage.

The Blues have relieved Mike Yeo of his head coaching duties after a disappointing start to the 2018-19 season.

After a flurry of offseason acquisitions that seemed to send a message to the NHL that St. Louis was all-in this season, the Blues have started 7-9-3 and currently sit in last place in the Central Division and second last in the conference. Craig Berube will take Yeo’s place as interim head coach.
Nov 20 - 12:18 AM

Matthew Tkachuk registered two goals and two assists in a 7-2 blowout win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday night.

It was a quick start for the Flames as Tkachuk opened the scoring on the powerplay early in the first period and his team poured on another four goals in the period. After picking up two assists on Calgary’s last two goals of the first period, the 20-year old scored just 24 seconds into the second frame. With tonight’s output, the young winger has 11 goals and 25 points in 21 games this season. Monahan (2), Gaudreau, Bennett and Brodie also scored in the win.
Nov 20 - 12:08 AM

Max Pacioretty scored a powerplay goal in a 7-2 thumping against the Calgary Flames on Monday night.

The game was already way beyond reach for the Golden Knights when Pacioretty scored just over five minutes into the third period to make it a 7-2 game. It was only the 29-year old’s fourth goal and sixth point in what’s been a somewhat disappointing start to the season for both Pacioretty and the Golden Knights. However, he has recently been bumped up to the top line and has four points in as many games, so it’s worth keeping an eye out in case this becomes a trend.

Braden Holtby stopped all 22 shots he faced in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Holtby entered the game for starter Phoenix Copley after the latter gave up four goals, including the last three in a span of 95 seconds to start the second period. Holtby came in for his first action since missing two games due to an upper-body injury, looking really solid. His record improves to 6-5-2 with a 3.07 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.
Nov 19 - 11:14 PM

Carey Price allowed five goals on 34 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

Price was given a 4-2 lead 1:35 into the second period but then gave up goals to Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin to tie it. After that, he denied Ovechkin of a hat trick on two different occasions, even earning himself a high-five from the Russian winger for one of his stops. It ended up being all for not as former teammates Lars Eller beat him in overtime on one he'd love to get back. Price will see his record fall to 7-4-4 with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.
Nov 19 - 11:11 PM

Alexander Ovechkin scored two goals in Monday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Tom Wilson did well to show like he was going to shoot, instead finding Ovechkin all alone for the goal. The Russian winger then followed that up with a power play marker to tie the game at four to start the third period. It’s Ovechkin’s 31st career goal against the Canadiens in 47 games, and his 21st on Carey Price. The 33-year-old winger now finds himself at 15 goals and 23 points in 20 games this season. Brett Connolly, Nicklas Backstrom and Lars Eller (OT winner) also scored in the win.
