NHL: Ryan Reeves' turn to rodeo against Matt Rempe

NHL: Ryan Reeves' turn to rodeo against Matt Rempe

Auston Matthews has often been the talk of the Toronto Maple Leafs this season, but it was Ryan Reaves and Matt Rempe who grabbed the headlines in the Leafs' 4-3 shootout win over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

After facing off against Matt Martin, Nicolas Deslauriers and Mathieu Olivier in brutal battles during his first five NHL games, rookie Rimpy faced the giant Reeves.

With less than six minutes remaining in the third period and with the Rangers trailing 3-2, the two men engaged in a waltz that lasted more than 50 seconds, each landing some good punches. Reeves had invited Remby earlier in the match, but the latter declined the invitation.

In his first game in a Maple Leafs uniform, defenseman Ilya Lyubushkin, acquired from the Anaheim Ducks, left the game with a head injury after taking a hit from Rempe.

After the game, coach Sheldon Keefe lamented that Remby “left ice contact” to hit his player.

The game was finally decided on a shootout goal from former Montreal Canadiens Max Domi. Mitch Marner, William Nylander and John Tavares scored for Toronto in regulation.

Quebec's Alexis Lafreniere had an excellent game with a goal and two assists. He contributed to all of Rangers' goals. After opening the scoring with a stunning strike in the first half, Lafreniere had the opportunity to play hero during the third round of penalties. However, he was frustrated by Ilya Samsonov and Domi scored moments later.

Vincent Trocheck scored the other two goals for Rangers. He highlighted the tying goal with 1:07 remaining in the third period, capitalizing on a rebound.

Since their ten-game winning streak, the Rangers have lost two of their three games. For the Maple Leafs, this is the ninth win in the last ten games.

In front of the Rangers cage, Igor Shesterkin surrendered three times on 34 shots. He has won each of his last seven starts. At the other end of the ice, Samsonov blocked 32 shots.

The Maple Leafs will return to action Monday night against the Boston Bruins, while the Rangers will take on the Florida Panthers.

Kiprusov's jersey retirement inspires flames

The Pittsburgh Penguins thought they could spoil Miikka Kiprusoff's night in Calgary, but the Flames' three-goal lead in the third period allowed them to win 4-3.

The former goaltender saw his number 34 retired with the Flames, with whom he racked up 305 wins, including 41 shutouts, in 576 games. When he retired in the 2012-13 season, Kiprusov led the Flames in goals against average of 2.46 and a save percentage of .913.

A few of Kiprusov's former teammates, including Jarome Iginla, were on hand.

“I don't think I need to tell you what a great player Iginla was. I think the only thing he didn't do was score against me in training,” Kiprusov laughed in his speech. Sincerely AGIt's a great honor to have my name there next to yours. »

Kirposov played nine seasons in Calgary with the Flames and notably won the Vezina Trophy in 2005-06.

“Nine years have gone by so fast, but they have been the best nine years of my life. My family and I will remember this for the rest of our lives, thank you.”

In the match, Igor Sharangovich played the hero with the winning goal in the last minute of play, with his second goal in the match. Nazem Kadri and Blake Coleman also hit the target.

Saturday night, the Penguins took a 3-1 lead midway through the third period thanks to goals from Jonathan Gruden, Lars Eller and Jeff Carter.

But Calgary revived their hopes of winning with two goals within 32 seconds. Kadri set the tone with a stunning one-on-one sequence during which he provided some impressive tricks for Penguins players. Moments later, Coleman tied the game 3-3.

While the deadlock was still holding in the final minute of the third period, Mikael Backlund took the puck from Kristofer Letang in the opposite area, before putting the puck behind him for Sharangovich. A good wrist shot at the top of the net allowed him to break the tie.

Palmieri is at the heart of the Bruins' problems
