Shane Doan is on fire.
The hottest player in the NHL is none other than the 39 year-old veteran. In his last 7 games, Doan scored 9 goals. His second of the game last night was the eventual game winner and the Yotes' defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-2.
Jakob Markstrom was defending the Nucks' net, allowing three goals on 29 goals.
"It was huge to make it 3-2 instead of 4-1," said Markstrom. "I thought we really woke up after that and we really pushed hard and came close at the end. It was a tough loss."
Head coach Willie Desjardins and captain Henrik Sedin praised Daniel Sedin for his goal after losing some teeth during the first period of the game.
"Those guys always play hard," said Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins about the Sedin brothers. "They do what it takes to win, always and every night."
"I think he lost three or four (teeth)," added Henrik Sedin. "It's just an accident that happens. Losing a few teeth is not a big deal. That shouldn't stop you from playing."
Bo Horvat scored his first goal since November 2, and was pretty happy to see one finally get in:
"I've been waiting for one of those for a long time," said Horvat. "It was nice to see one go in for once. To finally get one tonight after 27 games feel great. It's definitely a boost of confidence, but it would be nice if we got the win."
Vancouver will have a chance to add two points to its record when they play the Carolina Hurricanes at home on Wednesday.
