Cole Coffield plays the Canadian hero

The Canadian played with fire, but ultimately won 3-2 in overtime over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night at the Bell Center.

Cole Caufield gave his team victory with his third goal of the season, deceiving the alert Darcy Kuemper with a wrist shot.

However, things could have been very different. As the Habs took a 2-0 lead with less than nine minutes left in the third period, Dylan Strome sparked a Capitals rampage. Typically a goalscorer, Alex Ovechkin turned himself into a crucial passer in the sequence by perfectly distributing the ball to his teammate in a two-on-one.

The first city repeated with 2 minutes and 01 seconds left in the match in a draw while his team played six versus five.

Jake Allen got his second start of the season and did not disappoint his coach, Martin St. Louis. The goalkeeper made many important saves and cleared 30 of the 32 balls he faced.

The numerical advantage was ultimately decisive after scoring just once in nine attempts in the first three matches of the season. At the end of the first half, Sean Monahan scored the goal by accepting a wonderful pass from captain Nick Suzuki.

For his part, Brendan Gallagher doubled his team’s lead in the second half by pushing the ball beyond Kuemper on a rebound from Monahan.

The Canadian will play his next game against the Sabers in Buffalo on Monday night.
