The weather is getting cold (well, some days, at least) and what’s going on inside the rink is burning.
It was disgusting for one month in the 2021-22 NHL season and things were not going well in the 32 leagues. Jack Eichel managed to leave Western New York and finding the surgery he needed most to continue his NHL career. Alex Ovechkin continues his rise as the top scorer in all sports. And the teams that are supposed to be at the top are the ones at the bottom and those who are expected to be in the basement are staying in the penthouse.
It’s been wild.
When things start to get back to normal – stadiums full of fans, coaches in a warm chair or down to pink, a Canucks loyal call on Jim Benning’s head – it’s time to think. And with American Thanksgiving now here, it’s a good time to talk about our gratitude in the first month of the season.
2021-22 NHL: Four things we are grateful to start the year
1. Advanced goals
There was Matthew Tkachuk doing his thing.
Brandon Duhaime scores Wild-est opener NHL opener in history.
His colleague Kevin Fiala shows a bad group of hands.
Not surprisingly, the Connor McDavid Show continues …
And then, there was Kevin Hayes ’first goal of the year that was bigger than anything we’ve seen – and will see – this season.
2. Resurrection of goals
As we have explained in Sporting News review on Amazon Original, “All or None: Toronto Maple Leafs,” was clear among the five sections of the Maple Leafs who did not like Andersen but did not sign in Toronto. The Danish network operator was injured – and probably lost faith – in the 2021 season after becoming All-Star in 2019-2020.
Expect the 2021-22 season and Andersen is in Carolina and back on track. He sends off a brilliant 11-3-0 record with a saving of .936 percent and a score of 1.89 against the average.
In 2021, Markstrom suffered a setback and finished the season with a record 22-19-2 with the worst-performance .904 percent and the discount-4.0 Goals Saved Average (at least 25 games). It was a notable decline in its 2019-20 All-Star season when it had .918 percent and 11.4 GSAA.
Now, Markstrom is back. Despite having a good 8-3-4 record, with hot smoking, 1.73 GAA burns, .940 percent saving and 12.1 GSAA. There are 15 unlocked teams; Markstrom has NHL-five best locks – through 15 games.
3. Groups do not understand work
Simply put: it was really the unexpected beginning of the season. There was so much to ask ‘what is going on?’ mavibe. It sounded like we were all in Upside Down. Teams like the Red Wings and Sabers were hot while the Islanders and Golden Knights rivals weren’t. It wasn’t the way anyone thought things would start in the first season of 82 games in a short period of time (thank you so much for this).
Now that things have settled down a bit, there are still a lot of challenges and games to fill in the next five months. Who was with the Flames to lead the Western Conference on Nov. 25? How about Star Dating with .500 and mixing? Or the Ducks among the best in the West? The Islanders are actually the finalists in the Metropolitan and until a four-game win, the Penguins were also living in a basement.
Madness – confusion? – it’s exciting because this season has really been where every team can win every night.
Oh, was the only group that understood the task? Yes, you think – the Coyotes, who put their chips on Shane Wright.

4. Age is just a number
NHL is a boys’ league … blah, blah, blah. As a good wine, several fighters say to the kids “grab my chardonnay” and let me show you how it goes.
- Alex Ovechkin, 36, is ranked second in the NHL in goalscorers (15), third in points (33) and tied for the first time in strong goals (11).
- Jonathan Quick, 35, is in the top 10 on all targets – against average (2.25) and fourth on stock (.928).
- Patrice Bergeron, 36, leads the league in Corsi by 6% (53.99) on 5v5.
- Zdeno Chara, 44, threw gloves on Pat Maroon.
- Craig Anderson, 40, had a history of 4-2-0 with .920 saving percentage before injury over the Nov. 2.
- Brent Burns, 36, is the second most successful NHL defender in the ice age.
There has been a lot since the start of the season and the biggest moments, eye-catching as well as goals and upcoming issues.
Will very good man Keith Yandle not to be the NHL’s No. 1 iron man. 1 on Jan. 18 but will he break 1,000 straight games at the end of the season? How’s the Olympic Games going? What turmoil will the last trading day bring in March? Can Maple Leafs end their postseason drought?
It will be fun to climb all the way. Enjoy a wonderful holiday!
