In the Devil's Box, Mackenzie Blackwood saved 47 shots.
However, he did not manage to save when Mika Zibanejad scored his first goal of the season when he narrowed down from the favorite position from the left side, a goal in powerplay that meant 2-3.
Hughes, who was first selected in the 2019 draft, was close to getting another point but that goal was rejected.
He highlighted Blackwood's performance.
- He is the reason why we win matches at the moment.
He gives us confidence by knowing that he is back there and makes sure to close again in the end, says Hughes according to AP.
However, it was Hughes who was named the match's liar.
- It obviously felt good tonight.
It felt like the puck was coming to me all the time so I should just try to continue in the same way, says Hughes, who scored six points in three games and outshined Rangers Alexis Lafreniere, who was draft last year and is still waiting to score his first point. in the NHL.
