Alex DeBrincat is having a comeback season after scoring only 18 goals and 45 points last year. He has eight goals and eight assists in 17 games and had his six-game scoring streak end Monday against the same Red Wings.
So let me get this straight: The NHL and the on-ice officials botch a coach's challenge Sunday with Columbus and Carolina, awarding the Hurricanes a goal that should have been wiped away with an offside and giving the Blue Jackets a delay of game penalty for the failed review. They inform the teams during intermission that the call watch botched. They wipe away the rest of the power play. They do not take the goal off the board.
While Jacob Markstrom‘s more or less delivered as the Flames hoped, David Rittich hasn’t been so great. Perhaps the problem is that “Big Save Dave” doesn’t make enough of the small and medium-sized stops?
Unfortunately for Chris and the Panthers, Patrik Nemeth and Mathias Brome notched their first goals of the season, and Florida was unable to respond. Jonathan Bernier stopped 38 of the 39 shots he faced in a rare win, just Detroit's fifth in its 20th game overall. Bernier has four of those wins, moving to 4-2-0 with a 2.74 GAA and .910 SV% in his seven starts and eight appearances.Winnipeg Jets
Yet he’s rarely treated his status as a burden. If anything, he believes he’s simply holding up his end of the bargain. Asked if any of his first 999 games stand out, and Crosby points to an otherwise meaningless home finale at the Civic Arena as a rookie. Then 18 years old, he was chasing 100 points. The still-rebuilding Penguins were mired in last place in the Atlantic Division. The vibe in the arena that night, however, felt as if there was far more at stake.Seattle Kraken

In his debut, Thornton started on the first line alongside young stars Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Thornton logged two shots on goal, one hit, one block and one giveaway in 17:30 of playing time in Toronto’s 5-4 overtime victory.New York Islanders
Newly acquired Jets winger Pierre-Luc Dubois has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury but is currently with the team on its four-game road trip. Dubois tweaked something in Thursday’s game against Ottawa. He was able to the finish the game and felt fine. He was pulled from Friday’s practice with lower body tightness. Dubois, who was acquired from Columbus on Jan. 23 in exchange for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic, has zero points in two games with the Jets.Vancouver Canucks
