NHL. Timo Meier shines with a brace – Moser also scores.

Timo Meier scored both goals for San Jose


In the NHL, seven Swiss are deployed on Wednesday night. Two of them meet, two win.

Stanley Cup winners Colorado Avalanche have been in good form lately, winning six of their last seven games. However, it suffered a 6-3 loss against the Arizona Coyotes. It was also the duel between two Swiss. While Denis Malgin remained without a point in his third game for the Avalanche in just over 15 minutes of ice time, Janis Moser scored the goal towards the end of the second period with a wrist shot to make it 4-2 for the Arizona team. For the Biel defender it was the fourth goal of the season in 33 appearances.

Timo Meier was also able to shine as a goalscorer for the San Jose Sharks. In the 2:6 defeat of the Californians against the Vancouver Canucks, in which Bo Horvat towered over with four scorer points, the striker from Herisau scored both goals. Meier has thus reached the mark of 20 goals after 36 games. The 26-year-old winger has collected no fewer than twelve points in the last eight games.

Meanwhile, the Nashville Predators with Roman Josi and Nino Niederreiter remained without a win in the 2:3 against the Dallas Stars, as was Philipp Kuraschew in Chicago’s 0:3 against Carolina. The only Swiss who could also celebrate a win alongside Moser was Kevin Fiala after the Los Angeles Kings lost 4-2 to the Golden Knights from Las Vegas. Fiala, meanwhile, went without a point in California’s fifth win in their last six games.
