Nick Suzuki put his name on the scoresheet for the fifth straight game with an assist on Josh Anderson’s goal. After five games, the Ontarian now has five points (1 goal, 4 assists). But he is far from being the only offensive threat of the CH which already has 24 goals.

“Yes, there is a lot of depth. We had some good offensive games. There is a ton of depth within our roster. The points are distributed among all the trios. It’s nice as hockey. I believe our depth is our greatest strength. “- Nick Suzuki
Author of a hat trick the day before, Tyler Toffoli once again stunned the defense of his former teammates with two goals and one assist. There was a great bond between Toffoli and his trio mates, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Joel Armia. Julien will however have to find a new winger in this trio since Armia suffered a concussion at the end of the match.
“In our last two games, we did a better job with the puck. We made some good games, we weren’t always chasing the puck. I had known Armia for a long time. I played against him in the AHL and when he was in Winnipeg. A big winger, he can control the puck. “- Tyler Toffoli
Alexander Romanov finished the match with a CH-record 22:31. With a second game in two nights, Julien chose to distribute the minutes well among his defenders.
“There is depth all over the team. It’s the same with our attackers. At the blue line, we can roll our six defenders. Sharing the minutes is good for everyone. In the long run, there will be very beneficial effects. – Shea Weber
