Crouse's first and last trip to the famed Joe Louis Arena was memorable. He scored his second goal of the season last Tuesday against the Red Wings. Crouse now has three points in his NHL career.
*Notice the Toronto game up there?! That's going to be Auston Matthews' homecoming!! If you get a chance to watch it in person or on tv, please do it. It will be so special to him and his family.
It shouldn't be a surprise that Matthews now leads the Leafs in goals. Now at 14, thanks to a goal against the Sharks on Tuesday and one against his childhood team, the Coyotes, on Thursday. Last night his team beat the Stanley Cup champions which shows improvement to this franchise.
*Seriously! His homecoming is going to be great!
It's been a good week for him as he's added on 3 points to his career (One goal on Tuesday and two assists on Friday). Aho also scored in last night's shootout win which means that he has some great skills to share with the team and is valuable to them looking forward.
Even though the winning streak ended, the Flyers are still in good hands. Provorov leads all defensemen in time on ice with 20:49 per game. Did we mention that he's 19? Oh to be young again! It will only get longer for him as the season goes on.
One century of this game and League is a wonderful milestone to celebrate. Let's hope to do this in the next century!
