New York – Hockey goalie David Rittich caught all 34 Toronto shots and led Calgary to victory on the ice of NHL’s best team 3-0. The Jihlava offspring scored his fourth net account in his career in the overseas competition, the first this season. In the match between Carolina and Tampa Bay, three Czech hockey players scored. Ondřej Palát helped Tampa with a goal and assistance to win 4: 2, the pass to Palát’s shot was scored by the defender Jan Rutta. Martin Nečas won the Hurricanes jersey, who recorded Jesper Fast for the first goal of the match.

Rittich started for the fourth time this season since the start of the match and showed an excellent performance in the goal of Calgary. Toronto, which together with Edmonton is the most productive team in the entire competition, did not allow a single goal and celebrated its first win this year. Even the best scorer of the competition, Auston Matthews, who scored in the previous sixteen duels, did not mature into the Czech goalkeeper.

Calgary broke through a series of three losses and approached fourth place in the Northern Division by two points. Toronto did not score after three wins.

Tampa won on Carolina’s ice 4: 2, ending a series of six Hurricanes games with at least one point. Carolina, who is still missing the injured goalkeeper number one Petr Mrázek, led Fasta after the first third, but Tampa reversed the course of the match. First, after Palát’s assistance, Steven Stamkos tied in an overpowering game and in the next five minutes, Victor Hedman raised to 2: 1. Fast equalized with his second goal in the match, but Carolina couldn’t do more.

In the 49th minute, Palát decided the match with a curious goal. Rutta broke the hockey stick with a shot from the blue line, but the puck found a Czech striker who, with the help of skate defender Brady Skjei, transported the puck behind goalkeeper James Reimer. Alexander Killorn scored the score with a shot in the empty net.
