Juraj Slafkovsky’s first goal


A rush of three goals in just over five minutes, Juraj Slafkovsky’s first NHL goal and a splendid penalty shot from Nick Suzuki: the Montreal Canadiens celebrated Thursday at the Bell Center on their way to a 6-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

The Habs (3-2-0, 6 points) are therefore still undefeated at home this season, having won their first three games.

Slafkovsky (1st), Josh Anderson (2nd), Cole Caufield (4th), Brendan Gallagher (1st), Nick Suzuki (3rd) and Sean Monahan (2nd) – in an empty net – scored for the Canadians who took advantage of several largesse from keeper Connor Ingram.

If the Coyotes goalkeeper (1-3-0, 2 points) was not of caliber, his teammates were not ready for the start of the game, the Canadians having a 3-0 lead after 7: 17 game.

Quebec coach André Tourigny had to wait until the last third before seeing JJ Moser (1st) and Travis Boyd (1st) hit the target.

Jake Allen stopped 25 pucks. Ingram blocked 24 of 30 shots aimed at him.

The Canadiens will return to the Bell Center on Saturday to face the Dallas Stars.

The Canadiens strike early and often

There were less than two minutes left when the Canadians opened the scoring. A nice introduction from Kirby Dach set the stage for a pass to Jonathan Drouin and it was Josh Anderson who took advantage: 1-0 after 1:58.
