Juraj Slafkovsky and Nick Suzuki devour ducks

The offensive successes of Nick Suzuki and Juraj Slafkovsky continued in the Montreal Canadiens’ 5-0 win over the Anahein Ducks on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.

During a two-on-one in the second period, Juraj Slafkovsky delivered a magnificent pass to Nick Suzuki, who then deposited the puck into Lukas Dostal’s goal. The connection between the two players continued a few minutes later on the power play.

After a moment of confusion in front of the Ducks’ goalie’s net, Slafkovsky recovered the puck before handing it to his captain, who asked nothing more to drive it into the back of the net and give his team a 3-0 lead.

The roles were reversed during the last match when the Slovakian scored his eleventh goal of the campaign thanks to an offer from Suzuki. Both players finished their work day with three points.

Complicit in the Habs’ No. 14’s first success, Slafkovsky tied Doug Wickenheiser for the longest streak of games (six) with at least one point by a skater 19 years old or younger.

As a result, Suzuki collected a point for the eighth consecutive game, his longest streak since arriving in the National Hockey League (NHL) during the 2019-2020 season.

Jake Evans opened the scoring for the Montreal club from the beginning of the second half.

As for Brandon Gignac, he scored his first NHL goal by accepting a pass from Kaiden Guhle when the two players appeared alone in front of Dostal late in the third period.

In the win, Cayden Primeau, who made his first start since Jan. 18, collected his first shutout of the season with 13 saves.

This is also the second time since the start of the season that Martin St. Louis’ men have allowed fewer than two goals in a game.

The Bleu-Blanc-Rouge will return to action on Thursday against the Rangers in New York.
