Washington 4-1 Winnipeg

Alexander Ovechkin rose to become the second leading scorer in NHL history. The 37-year-old Russian scored twice as the Washington Capitals beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 at home. His target was No. 801 and 802.

With 802 goals, Ovechkin overtook Canadian Gordie Howe, who died in 2016 at the age of 88 and was active from 1946 to 1980. Only “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky has been more successful than Ovechkin with 894 goals. Ovechkin’s contract with the Capitals runs through 2026.

In the last game before the short Christmas break, there was a major battle in the Eastern Conference between fourth-place New Jersey and leading Boston. The Bruins won by four narrowly due to a strong middle third. The demons around captain Nico Hischier and Jonas Seigenthaler had to concede defeat for the seventh time in eight matches. After all, Hischier managed to enter the list of top scorers twice.

The Nashville Predators also had to play against one of the best teams in their conference. But against the Colorado Avalanche – second in the West in points lost – they also had to concede defeat. In overtime, Samuel Gerrard made the decision 3-2. Roman Jose 1-0 in Nashville and teammate Nino Niedereiter 2-0 both had an assist. Dennis Malgin made his second Colorado appearance.

Arizona 2-1 Los Angeles AF

JJ Moser, 3 blocks, 19:47 TOI
Kevin Fiala, 2 shots, 1 block, 17:11 TOI

There was also a Swiss duel in Arizona. Surprisingly, Janis Moser and the Arizona Coyotes kept the upper hand against Kevin Fiala’s Los Angeles Kings, who were better off in the standings. It was only the 11th win in 32 games for the Coyotes. This is because only Nick Begstad scored in the penalty shootout. Neither Moser nor Fiala participated in the decision.

Chicago – Columbus 5-2

Philip Kurashev, 1 assist, 3 shots, 1 block, 16:56 Tui
Tim Burney, 3 shots, 1 check, 16:46 TOI

All good things come in threes. Swiss fencers Philip Kurachev and Tim Bernie also played in the match between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Columbus Blue Jackets. The hosts prevailed with confidence. After a good three minutes into the second period, Chicago was 4-0 up, and only Columbus managed to close the deficit. On the fourth goal, Kurachev played the penultimate pass.
