⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Tristan Jarry
Although his team took the loss, you could not have asked for more out of the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender. Tristan Jarry was bombarded by the Tampa Bay Lightning, being faced with 48 shots. Jarry stopped 45 of the 48 that he was faced with and finished the night with a .938 SV%. Jarry and the Penguins were just under a minute away from sending the contest into overtime.
⭐️⭐️ – Victor Hedman
The Pittsburgh Penguins were less than a minute away from sending the game into overtime, but then came Victor Hedman. With 57 seconds left in regulation, Hedman blasted a shot from the blue line that tickled the twine for a power play goal. Hedman’s second goal of the season also served as the game-winning goal.
⭐️ – Anders Nilsson
Anders Nilsson is looking better and better in every game with the Ottawa Senators. On Wednesday night against the Detroit Red Wings, Nilsson backstopped his team to a 5-2 win at the Canadian Tire Centre. This victory in Kanata would mark the Senators second win of the season.
The Swedish goaltender stopped 34 of 36 shots, earning himself a .944 SV%. In almost every game he has played so far this season for the Ottawa Senators, Anders Nilsson has earned high praise with an outstanding performance when given the start. On Wednesday, he was constantly being tested with some high-quality shots like in the sequence below. Nilsson is starting to make it hard for D.J. Smith not to hand him the starting goaltender job.
