Plot twist: Juraj Slafkovsky sets a new record in the history of the Montreal Canadiens

The Canadiens faced a shaky Rangers team on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. The first 30 minutes belonged to the Canadiens, but the home team eventually scored 4 goals in 4 minutes, leading to a 7-4 victory.

When we say "shaky," it means the Rangers were expected to dominate the Canadiens throughout the game, but that wasn't the case. They dominated for four minutes, after which they should have secured the game, but they couldn't.

The Canadiens regained control afterward, but it must be said that New York was very opportunistic. In short, it wasn't a reassuring performance from a team aspiring to the Stanley Cup.

For the Canadiens, the best news of the game was Juraj Slafkovsky's performance, who earned at least one point in his 7th consecutive game.


With this streak, he becomes the first player under 20 years old in the team's history, spanning over 100 years, to achieve such a feat. It's extraordinary!

Considering the exciting players who have graced the ice at the Forum and the Bell Centre before him, it's truly remarkable. He's coming into his own right now, and he's unstoppable. He is directly linked to the success of the first line.
