Montreal Canadiens player Cole Caufield finally found the back of the net on Saturday afternoon with a Laval Rocket.
The striker beat Utica Komets goalkeeper Nico Dos from a narrow angle with a surgically accurate shot.
The streak caused confusion on the ice, but Coffield had no doubts in his mind as he immediately began to celebrate.
The young striker meanwhile responded to Utica Comets’ Twitter account manager, who mocked Caufield by suggesting he was invisible on the ice last Sunday.
The message caused such a stir that it was suppressed by comets. But Coffield allowed himself to have the last word.
With Saturday’s meeting looming, Coffield still hasn’t scored in four games with the Rocket since he was demoted to MLS. Prior to that, he had not scored in 10 games with the Montreal Canadiens since the start of the season.
His last goal was in the 2021 semi-final between the Canadians and the Golden Knights in Vegas.
As for the match, Komets won it 5-3.
Thus, Rocket ends his three-game streak at home with two wins versus a setback. The team also saw its winning streak stop at three to show its 6-6-1 record.
The club will now head to Ontario, where they face the Marlies in Toronto on Wednesday. Then he will cross swords with senators in Belleville on Saturday.
