There was a bit of a hiccup at the end of that 3-1 loss to the Capitals. Conor Sheary and T.J. Oshie fussed over Nick Suzuki. Brendan Gallagher didn't like the reaction of the Caps players.

“The match was over and they left after Suzy. We'll do that whenever it happens. I don't quite know what to say. It happens. It's part of the game. You have to live with it when it happens. If that hadn't happened, we would have just left the rink. We lost the match. »

Juraj Slafkovsky is done the match with a playing time of 12 min 41 s, a record for him in this young season. He didn't get a shot in the direction of Darcy Kuemper, but he hit the post in the first period. Martin St-Louis gave an interesting review of his match.

“He skated. It's hard to comment on everyone, so many things are happening. I feel like he touched the puck even more, that's always a good sign. He will figure out how to use his body to his advantage, not just his skills, especially to his greatness. The way goals are scored in this league, you have to go for the goal and look for pucks in the corner. Juraj is 18 years old, he is used to having the puck more often than now. There will be an adjustment period. He is living it now. »
