  The Buzzer: Kuznetsov, Kempny lead improbable comeback for Capitals The Washington Capitals trailed by four goals but still managed to get two points against the Vancouver Canucks.1. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Michal Kempny, Washington Capitals. With 10 seconds to play in the second period on Friday night the Washington Capitals trailed the Vancouver Canucks 5-1. They did not get a single point all night from Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, T.J. Oshie, or John Carlson. And they still won, 6-5. They won thanks to a pair of two-goal efforts from forward Evgeny Kuznetsov and defender Michal Kempny to erase that four-goal deficit and send the game to overtime.

1. The Avalanche offense, in general

It feels weird to hand this one to Nathan MacKinnon alone, as he did have the biggest night of any Av (one goal, three assists [two primary] for four points, a whopping 10 shots on goal), but MacKinnon also left the game with an upper-body injury that Colorado has to hope is minor.

Also, it’s difficult to choose between MacKinnon’s four-point game, heavy on assists, and Joonas Donskoi collecting his first career hat trick. As you’d expect with nine goals, including six goals in the span of eight minutes, plenty of Colorado players chipped in. Both Andre Burakovsky and Cale Makar enjoyed one-goal, two-assists performances, for instance.

  The Buzzer: van Riemsdyk helps Flyers rally; Drouin continues great start Everything you need to know about Saturday's NHL action including the Philadelphia Flyers big rally, Montreal beating Toronto, Nashville's overtime win, and all of the action from the Heritage Classic where the Winnipeg Jets were winners over the Calgary Flames.1. James van Riemsdyk, Philadelphia Flyers. With less than 10 minutes to play the Flyers trailed by a pair of goals and looked to be headed to a tough a loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets. It was at that point that they rallied with five goals in the remaining nine minutes to steal a 7-4 win and win their third game in a row.

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist took an unusual delay of game penalty Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Lundqvist appeared to be shaken up but a whistle was not blown, so the goalie knocked the net off its moorings and received a two-minute delay of game penalty.

So let’s just give that entire group the kudos.

The third of Donskoi’s goals was especially pretty:

2. Logan Couture, San Jose Sharks

Couture matched MacKinnon, actually, with one goal and three assists (also two primary) for four points.

You might want to give Couture the nod over any single Avalanche player, as while Colorado’s onslaught eventually felt like stuffing yourself full at a buffet, the Sharks needed every bite.

San Jose finished the first period up 4-0, and ended the second with a 6-2 edge, yet the Wild managed to make it 6-5 with a three-goal final frame. Minnesota even did so while the Sharks had a strange set of power-play opportunities in the third, with a major slashing penalty to Ryan Hartman mixed with some others to … well, let’s just say San Jose had a great chance to kill any drama.

Couture’s four points ended up being crucial as the Sharks just barely won 6-5. Hey, if you have to work your way out of a sluggish start, sometimes you have to win ugly.

3. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

There is a slew of strong three-point nights, even beyond the game mentioned above.

But let’s go with a vintage Lundqvist performance instead, shall we? Yes, the Hurricanes eventually scored two goals, but Thursday presented a classic night where Hank was King again.

Lundqvist made 45 saves, and if you click over to all situations on Natural Stat Trick’s breakdown of the game, you’ll see that the Hurricanes generated a whopping 22 high-danger chances. The Hurricanes peppered Hank, yet he left Carolina salty with a loss.

Highlight of the Night

Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat shows that sometimes you can get the job done while falling down on the job:
