Philipp Kurashev scored his first NHL goal. The success of the 21-year-old Bernese, however, did not prevent Chicago’s 5-4 loss to Sunrise to Florida.
The Blackhawks begin their season with four losses in four games. On Monday evening, however, they picked up their first point as they only lost in overtime on a goal from Frank Varano.
Philipp Kurashev will therefore only have waited for his third game to shake the NHL’s nets. He victoriously concluded a break in the 47th to give his colors the 4-3 advantage. The Bernese was credited with a +1 record for 10’03 ” on the ice. Pius Suter returned a neutral record for a playing time of 13’31 ”. Double scorer, former Ambri-Piotta top scorer Dominik Kubalik was the Blackhawks’ sharpest forward.
Another Swiss player scored a point on Tuesday night. Dean Kukan provided an assist for Frenchman Alexandre Texier in Columbus’ 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit.
Finally, it should be noted that the meeting between the Nashville of Roman Josi and the Carolina of Nino Niederreiter was postponed due to the Covid-19. Monday during the first clash between the two teams, Jordan Staal (Carolina) and Mikael Grandlund (Nahville) had not been aligned due to the protocol imposed by the Covid-19.
