Playoff roundup: Artturi Lehkonen scores twice in Avalanche win

Playoff roundup: Artturi Lehkonen scores twice in Avalanche win

There was only one second-round game last night when Game 3 of the series between the Colorado Avalanche and the St. Louis Blues was scheduled in the National Hockey League.

Here is a summary of this match and its best moments.

1. Avalanche take a 2-1 series lead with a 5-2 win

Jared Bednar’s squad bounced back nicely last night after escaping Game 2 against the Blues entirely.

The Avalanche won 5-2 in a showy game with several goals and forceful clashes.

Indeed, two players had to leave the match during the match due to injuries.

First, Jordan Binnington left the game due to a collision with his defenseman Calle Rosen, as well as Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri.

It’s a streak that leaves room for debate as both players collide with Binnington. Did Kadri willingly defraud himself? I don’t think so, but you never know that we are still talking about Nazem Kadri.

I’ll let you make up your own mind about the streak, just like the people on social media who are currently on fire.

The truth is that Binnington was really cursed against Kadri.

In fact, during Kadri’s post-match interview, Binnington threw a water bottle in Kadri’s direction.

A situation that Kadri commented on again later in the evening.

The other player to leave the game during the match was Samuel Girard. The latter received a good check from Ivan Barbashev, and therefore had to go to the hospital.

Later that night, news broke that Girard’s season had ended due to a broken sternum.

This is a VERY big loss for the Avalanche, as Girard is one of their very good and reliable defenders.

The rest of the series will be very interesting.

These are the goals of the game.

The Blues did not challenge the goal for offside, which seems rather strange to me when I watch the sequence below.

What a shot from Artturi Lehkonen! (yes, yes Lehkonen!).

Gabriel Landeskog and Artturi Lehkonen completed the scoring by each scoring a goal on an empty goal.

The next few games in this series will be one to watch very closely.


– Here is the result of the previous day.
