Rasmus Dahlin’s show in the overdrive of the night in the NHL

Rasmus Dahlin had both a goal and a double assist as his Buffalo routed Washington 6-2.
Boston’s goalkeeper Linus Ullmark also excelled and kept a clean sheet against Nashville.

The Swedish back Rasmus Dahlin was already involved in the home team’s first goal, where he made another goal-scoring pass Zemgus Girgensons at the end of the first period, which meant 1–1. The middle innings was also an even story, with Buffalo going into the break with a 3–2 lead.

In period three it loosened up when Dahlin started by making it 4-2 with one more man on the ice. That was quickly followed by two more hits for Buffalo, with Dahlin again getting an assist when Alex Tuch determined the final result after just over five minutes.
