Here are your 3 stars of the day:
3. Gustav Nyquist. The only forward star of the day, Nyquist\’s goal and an assist lead his \’Wings to a 5-3 victory.
2. Zach Werenski. The rookie defenseman has taken a solid impact to the Blue Jackets team even though they were the last NHL team to win a game. Werenski\’s goal and assist helped the Jackets get that win, a 3-2 victory over Chicago.
1. Johnny Boychuk. As a defenseman, Boychuk made an outstanding effort to get a breakaway, leading to a goal by Ryan Strome against his brother Dylan\’s Coyotes. Later in the game, when it\’s tied at 2 and the Coyotes have a powerplay, Boychuk\’s wicked slapper won the game for his Isles.
And those were your 3 stars of the day.
There wasn\’t much news coming out of the day but you don\’t expect that when there is only 3 games. The top 2 headlines were:
Ryan Strome wins first meeting of Strome brothers. Flyers\’ RW Dale Weise suspended 3 games for a blow to the head of Duck\’s defenseman Korbinian Holzer.
And that will conclude the 7th edition of a day in hockey.
