Roop Hintze dominated the NHL playoffs – scored a crucial point after a crucial win


Roop Hintz has had a great season and a playoff spring as well. Eight wins still isn’t enough, as he wants to win the Stanley Cup.


It took only seconds and 36 minutes until the red light came on.

It was Roop Hintze who took the puck away from his old teammate Jamie Oleksiak, who accelerated toward the goal guarded by Philipp Grubauer and shot the puck into the backpack.

Hintze gave Dallas a 1–0 lead against the Seattle Kraken.

The goal came close to being the deciding goal in the series-winning seventh game, but thanks to Oliver Björkstrand’s tying goal with 19 seconds remaining, the winning goal went to Wyatt Johnson, who scored Dallas’ 2–0 goal earlier in style. created. Third Period.

Well played his Wesker. I also had a few plots before it ended. “The opponent had some bad spots in the beginning, but our goalkeeper (Jake Oettinger) was good,” Hintze said after the match.

– Looks great. We had good pitches all around. Seattle got some chances, but we dominated pretty well. They’ve been good at 5-5 and it wasn’t too cold. Johnson scored big.

The seven-match series was tight, and like other series of matches, it can be said that control of individual games depended on which team troubled its opponent with hair-raising offensive play. .

No overs were observed between Dallas and Seattle, although the bat was occasionally handed – and for example Hintze delivered the same measure each time.

– A little different from our first series. It kept coming with border goods. Now we hit hard, but cleanly, said Hintze.

Hintz, who plays strong in two directions, has scored 19 points (9+10) in 13 games and led Dallas from the front. Only Edmonton’s Connor McDavid, who scored more – but whose season is already over, is ahead in the playoff market.

– It’s okay, but you can never do them alone. Field and teammates have been nice too, Hintz said.

Right after, he is told that there are only eight wins. 16 are needed for the championship.

– It’s good that he’s gone, but we’re only half way there. Should be able to move on from here. You can’t relax now, Hintze said.

The atmosphere at Dallas’ home field was through the roof.

Today was a really nice day. It’s nice to play when you have blocks all the time.

Even Karija’s cha cha cha was scared of the speakers in the arena.
