Power Plays: Canucks, Avs Take Advantage For NHL Wins

Jonathan Grant | November 20th, 2021

It wasn’t nearly as busy of a night in the NHL on Friday night as it was for the NBA, but there were still two games out on the ice. One of them featured a team tied for their division’s top spot as the Winnipeg Jets traveled to face the Vancouver Canucks.

Unfortunately for them, they were not able to better their spot as they allowed the power play to down them. Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored on one in the first period and Conor Garland scored on one in the third to restore a two-goal lead and make it 3-1. They’d eventually finish 3-2, though they remained next-to-last in the Pacific even with the ‘W.’ In the other game, the brand-new Seattle Kraken’s early-season struggles continued as they were pummeled 7-3 at home by the Colorado Avalanche. The Avs scored twice in the opening seven minutes and scored the game’s first seven goals to show this was not even a fair contest. Andre Burakovsky twice scored on power plays while Cale Makar also had two goals and an assist in the runaway result that wasn’t ever in any real doubt.
