Ice HockeyA four-point game for Kevin Fiala in the NHL
The St. Gallen winger largely contributed to Los Angeles’ success against Edmonton (6-3) by scoring two goals and collecting two assists.
Kevin Fiala (26) delivered a capital performance on the night of Monday to Tuesday in the NHL championship, where four matches were on the schedule.
At the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the St. Gallen left winger contributed to the Kings’ success against Edmonton (6-3) by putting his name on the scoreboard four times.
The record of No 22 of the team coached by Todd McLellan: two goals and two assists. The 2014 first-round pick (11th overall by Nashville) is having an extraordinary streak. He has lit the lamp five times in the last two outings and has been credited with eleven points in the last six meetings.
Faced with the offensive power of the Oilers and its two-headed monster (Ontarian Connor McDavid and German Leon Draisaitl), Kevin Fiala collected all his mentions on the power play.
He opened the scoring in the 10th minute as BC defender Tyson Barrie was in the dungeon, exploiting a perfect pass from Swedish winger Adrian Kempe.
He doubled the lead two minutes later when Ontario forward Zach Hyman passed through the “jail” box, his shot leaving no chance for Alberta goalkeeper Stuart Skinner, who will be replaced by Jack Campbell after 24 minutes.
Naturally decorated with the first star, Kevin Fiala distilled two goal passes to Kempe in the middle period. Thanks to this production, he maintains a rate of star player. In 44 matches, he has a record of 46 points (15 goals).
Josi’s 10th goal
Another Swiss hit the target in this round after which three goalkeepers celebrated a shutout.
At the Canadian Tire Center in Kanata, where Nashville beat Ottawa (0-3), Bernese defender Roman Josi (32) scored his 10th goal of the 2022-2023 season.
He exploited a serve from Grison right winger Nino Niederreiter (30) to open the scoring and pave the way to success for the Predators.
NHL. Monday’s matches: Montreal – Seattle 0-4. Los Angeles-Edmonton 6-3. Buffalo – Philadelphia 0-4. Ottawa-Nashville 0-3.
