NHL: Timo Meier shines on Montreal ice – rts.ch
Timo Meier and the Sharks had a blast in Montreal. San Jose won 5-0, thanks in particular to 3 points from the Appenzell striker, to inflict on the Canadian his 4th defeat in four matches played this season.
Designated second star behind his teammate Jonathan Dahlen (2 goals), Timo Meier was credited with an assist on the two successes of the Swedish « rookie », registered after only 1’22 » and 3’36 » of play in this part. He himself scored 3-0, in « power play » in the 24th minute.
Unhappy finalist of the 2021 playoffs in July, Montreal saw the worst start to the season in its history since 1995/96 (5 defeats to start). The absence of his goalie Carey Price, who has integrated the NHL assistance program to preserve his sanity, does not explain everything.
Hischier opens his counter
Three other Swiss distinguished themselves on Tuesday. Nico Hischier scored his first point of the season – an assist – with the Devils, who beat Seattle 4-2. Roman Josi also signed an assist in a game the Predators won 2-1 against Los Angeles, as did Kevin Fiala in a game won 6-5 by the Wild against Winnipeg.
