NHL: the Canes de Niederreiter in the playoffs despite the defeat – rts.ch

The Hurricanes will play for the third time in a row in the NHL playoffs. Nino Niederreiter and his teammates validated their ticket despite the loss suffered in overtime Monday in Dallas (4-3).

The Grison striker signed his 31st point of the season, making an assist – his 14th in this championship – on the 2-2 signed Jaccob Slavin. Dallas captain Jamie Benn was the great man of the match: author of 3 assists in regulation time, he scored the winning goal in « overtime ».

The point won in Texas therefore allows the Hurricanes, at the head of the Central Division, to secure their place in the playoffs. The Stars (5th) remain two lengths from the Nashville Predators (4th), who won 4-1 against the Panthers. But Dallas has played 2 games less than Roman Josi’s franchise.

Timo Meier also distinguished himself. The Appenzell striker managed an assist in a game the Sharks won 6-4 against Arizona. San José, which ended a series of 8 defeats, has therefore relaunched in the race for the playoffs. But the task of the Californian franchise, 6th in the West Division, promises to be delicate.
