While Kevin Fiala had an extremely successful evening, Nico Hischier had to leave the ice cream as a loser.
Kevin Fiala has impressively continued his run in the NHL over the past few weeks. In the 5-1 win of his Minnesota Wild over the Anaheim Ducks, the Swiss hit twice and received an assist.
The St. Gallen player scored his first goal shortly before the first break when he had left Anaheim defender Ben Hutton and goalkeeper John Gibson had no chance. In the middle third, Fiala scored the 3-0 goal in the power play. The Swiss contributed an assist to the 5: 1.
I hope it continues like this.
Fiala has scored six times this season and scored all goals in the last 7 games. “I played at the level I wanted. I hope it continues like this, ”said the 24-year-old. For the 10th time in his career, Fiala scored 2 goals in an NHL game.
