– This is what all players dream about – to score in the seventh game and win the seventh game. To do this also with a hat-trick. It’s clearly a dream come true, says Jean-Marc, who was flown from Chicago to Vegas in late April.
It took seven games to separate Vegas and Minnesota in the quarterfinals. But in the end, Vegas was the winner – and that’s at home, too.
“The feeling in the locker room before was good, Minnesota is a good team, but there was really no doubt we were going to win this game,” says Janmark who spent a season at Frölunda 2014-15 before moving to AIK. United State.
Minnesota got 0-3 in matches
Vegas started the series by taking the 3-0 lead, but Minnesota fought back and were able to level the series to 3-3 before tonight’s game.
In tonight’s 6-2 win, Vegas’s Matthias Janmark scored the first and last two goals of the match. In between, the home team managed to get three more balls for just two guests.
I’ve done several hat-tricks at home in Sweden, but this is my first in the NHL, says Janmark, who, unsurprisingly, was named Man of the Match.
Vegas William Karlsson is listed for help, as is Minnesota Joel Eriksson Ek.
In the quarter-final series, Vegas meets Colorado, the first game is played the night before Monday Swedish time.
