Last night was another game of the new season of the National hockey League (NHL). Among others, converged at the site of “Washington” and “Pittsburgh”. The confrontation between Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin ended with a victory “penguins”, despite the fact that the captain “capital” scored points, while his counterpart is not.
Despite playing away, “Pittsburgh” began very briskly. In the first period, Chris Letang opened the account, and in the middle of the second Patrick Hornqvist doubled the advantage of “penguins”. Christian Yuus under the curtain of the second period narrowed the gap in score, but in the beginning of the third period, Conor Shiri has successfully implemented most of his team.
In the 53rd minute of the match another goal in the new NHL season scored by Alexander Ovechkin – for him it was the eighth goal in four matches. Thus, the score became 3:2 in favor of “Pittsburgh,” but the owners of the site put the squeeze have not been able to – duel with the same result and ended.
We will note that Evgeny Makin in reporting the meeting effective action was not observed, as another Russian hockey player, but from the “Washington” Evgeny Kuznetsov.
