Ineffective due to COVID-19 on March 24, the Vancouver Canucks found a way to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 at Rogers Arena in overtime on Sunday night.
The Nets of William Nylander and Auston Matthews gave the Leafs the lead. As far as the first one is concerned, this is his 100th goal in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was the eighth player selected to meet this standard in 2014.
Nils Hoglander allowed the Canucks to score with his eighth place.
Before the goal, Braden Holtby won 37 saves and Campbell repelled 21 goals. The Ghanaian goalkeeper was particularly good in his miraculous save against Matthews in the third quarter.
This unfortunate incident also marked the showdown. In the second stage, the Canucks defender Alexander Edler kneels on top of Zach Hyman. The Maple Leaf forward was injured and did not play again. The full-back was sent off. The latter appeared to have injured his right knee, and he underwent surgery for a torn ligament in 2019.
Recall that Vancouver training was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, when more than 20 athletes were infected with the virus. Having been on the floor for almost a month, Canucks must now make up for the lost time. They will also reconnect with the Queen City Club on Tuesday night.
At Wells Fargo Center, the New York Islanders used a lucky overtime advantage to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0.
The back-up guard Nick Leddy rushed into the offensive zone. Then he tried to catch up with Jordan Eberle, but his throw hit Travis Sonnheim’s bat, and this precious object ended it after goalkeeper Brian Elliott Run.
The latter has repelled 27 shots before, and his opponent Ilya Sorokin performed perfectly in 30 shots.
The 25-year-old Russian has signed the third blockade of his current campaign. He also joined Alex Nedeljkovic in the entry-level roster of the NHL and participated in the first year of the masked men’s suspension.
