NHL Recap is SenShot’s daily tour around the on-ice action from the NHL. There were 3 games on NHL ice last night, and here is what happened:
- The struggling Philadelphia Flyers offense was at it again, as they could manage only one goal for the third straight game in falling to the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1. Jay Harrison and Radek Dvorak scored for the Canes sandwiching Luke Schenn‘s first of the season. Jeff Skinner assisted on both Carolina goals and Ryan Murphy recorded his first NHL point, an assist on Harrison’s goal. Anton Khudobin needed to make just 17 saves for the win while the beneficiary of non-support in the Flyers net this time around was Steve Mason, who stopped 32 of 34 shots.
- Corey Perry snapped a 2-2 tie with just over 5 and a half minutes left in the third period to give the Anaheim Ducks a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets in Teemu Selanne‘s last scheduled game in the city that he started his career playing for. Andrew Ladd had both Jets goals, but Mathieu Perreault and Andrew Cogliano answered each time. Selanne was named first star in tribute for what he did for Winnipeg in the past, a nice honor for him.
- In a see-saw battle between the Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks, Mike Santorelli‘s 2nd goal of the game was the winner for Vancouver 3:17 into overtime. David Booth opened the scoring for the Canucks, but that was erased by Mark Giordano, Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan (who has a point in each of the 3 Flames games to start his career) to give the Flames a 3-1 lead early in the third. Vancouver stormed back and re-took the lead with Jannik Hansen, Santorelli and Dale Weise scoring in a span of just over 10 minutes. The Flames tied it up to force overtime with David Jones scoring with just 19 seconds left. Eddie Lack got the fortunate win, allowin 4 goals on 36 shots, while Joey MacDonald took the OTL, allowing 5 goals on 28 shots.
There is just 2 games on the docket for Monday night, but check back tomorrow to find out what happened.
