New York – Hockey goalkeeper Vítek Vaněček helped twenty-three hits to win Washington over the New York Rangers 5: 1 and was declared the third star of the match. The opening duel of the Capitals in the new year decided with four points for two goals and the same number of assists Alexandr Ovečkin. Toronto also succeeded, beating Montreal 2: 1 in the replay of last year’s first round of the Stanley Cup.

The Washington hockey players decided on their clear victory in the second half of the match. TJ Oshie opened the duel in the 5th minute, but the next goal was almost half an hour away. With two goals in 24 seconds, the Capitals bounced back to a three-goal difference in the 34th minute and decided their triumph.

The Rangers also made their mark in the third period. The only one who matured into a reliably catching Vaněček was Chris Kreider, who ran Ryan Strome’s offer over the shoulder of the Czech goalkeeper. The dramatic end of the match was rejected by two goals from captain Washington Ovechkin, who determined the final form of the result in the 53rd minute.

David Kämpf and Ondřej Kaše recorded the winning competition premiere in the Toronto jersey. The pair, who passed through the youth of the Pirates of Chomutov, joined together in the third offensive formation and in the 8th minute were on the ice with the only goal collected. However, the Maple Leafs were able to reverse the development of the match and even without goalkeeper Petr Mrázek they defeated Montreal 2: 1.
