The German national ice hockey player JJ Peterka played an important role in the Buffalo Sabres' seventh win of the season.
In the 3:2 (1:1, 1:0, 1:1) home win over the Minnesota Wild, the World Cup silver medalist scored a goal and prepared another goal.
Peterka scored at the beginning of the final period to give Buffalo a 3-1 lead, with the 21-year-old attacker scoring his sixth goal of the season in the North American ice hockey league. Peterka gave Jeff Skinner a 2-1 lead in the second half. For the second time this season, the Munich native recorded two points scorer in one game.
Nico Sturm and the San Jose Sharks clearly had to admit defeat to the defending champion Vegas Golden Knights: Due to the 0:5 (0:2, 0:0, 0:3) away defeat, the Sharks remained without a goal for the third time this season a game. With a record of 2:11 wins, the team from San Jose remains the weakest in the entire NHL.
