Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson played their first game of the season

Big Sunday in the NHL anyway, as eight games were featured. Here are the results:

1. Reinforcement to the Capitals

Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson, injured since the start of the season, participated in their first game of the season for the Capitals.

Washington won 1-0 and the two were scoreless.

However, their return is good news for the Caps, who were missing blow in attack without these two strikers.

The only goal was scored by Erik Gustafsson (who else?).

Goaltender Darcy Kuemper shut out the Blue Jackets with a 38-save performance.

2. David Pastrnak pays the Ducks

Be that as it may, David Pastrnak had quite the outing last night against the Anaheim Ducks. In fact, the Slovakian winger scored his 30th, 31st and 32nd goals of the season.

Not only did he reach the 30 goal mark, but he also scored a hat trick.

Let’s say Pastrnak wants to be paid a lot of money at the end of the season. The 88er has 57 points in 40 games this season.

He became the third player this season to reach the amazing 30 goals.

3. Hattrick for Kyle Connor

Another who had a strong game and scored three goals was Kyle Connor.

It was his fourth career hat trick.

In Jet’s history, he is linked to Nikolaj Ehlers.

Speaking of Ehlers, he also had three points.

After being shut out in his fourth game of the season on Friday and his first since October 17, the Dane has made his case.

This season he has eight points and let’s just say his comeback is doing his team a lot of good.

4. Another 20-goal season for Auston Matthews

In a 6-2 Leafs thaw against the Flyers, Auston Matthews scored the insurance goal on a late power play.

Unlike last year, he doesn’t lead the league in goals, but he still gets the job done. Yesterday, he hit the 20-goal mark for a seventh straight season to start his career.

He is the fifth player in franchise history to score in seven consecutive seasons.

Among American players in history, he is only the third player to begin his career with as many 20-goal seasons.

In the win, Conor Timmins scored his first NHL goal.
