New York. Two exciting comebacks were part of Tuesday’s National Hockey League prep game between the New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers in Bridgeport.
Islanders captain Anders Lee made his debut in the game since March this year, and defender Zdino Chara wore the New York shirt for the first time in 20 years. Both were satisfied because their team won 3-0 and Lee at the end of the first half increased the home team’s lead to 2:0.
Lee was temporarily suspended from March 11, 2021 due to an ACL injury to the knee, and also had to undergo surgery.
“It’s nice to be on the ice with my teammates for a match after so long. I wasn’t nervous, and I didn’t think about the knee that had surgery.
It wasn’t the best performance, but it did well in some places. “We need to give our best and prepare for the season,” 31-year-old Anders Lee told foreign media.
The forty-four-year-old began her career abroad in the NHL on the 1997/1998 New York side and is currently preparing for her twenty-fourth season.
Via Ottawa, Boston, and Washington, he returned to the islanders in the summer with a one-year contract. “I think we had a strong game. But there is still room for improvement. We had a very good start for 20 minutes and then let Philadelphia back into the game.
They put a lot of pressure on us. We lacked sharpness in the second period. The fights in the run-up are good for us to catch shortcomings and focus on performing for the full 60 minutes.
We talked a lot about how we should play and now we need to move her to play on the ice,” Zdeno Chara said on the New York Islanders website.
The Slovak national team scored four shots on goal and two minutes of penalty kicks on skates to delay the match in the first half and in the end got an extra point. Slovakian striker Richard Banek also introduced himself to the New York Islanders, but did not score.
Three shots on goal appeared in his record. “It’s not up to me yet,” Chara added. “I need to improve my driving and acceleration. I think he will come with more matches.”
