Connor Bedard insists there is nothing wrong with Hurricanes goalkeeper Spencer Martin: ‘It’s hockey’


To some, points mean nothing when they lose.

a day later Connor Bedard scores at least three points For only the second time in his rookie career, he wasn’t in the mood to celebrate.

“It was pretty frustrating,” he said Tuesday. Despite recording a goal and two assists, the Hawks lost 6-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes.

“You are never happy after a defeat and of course the points are nice, but I think we have a lot to improve, especially in the first two periods. We came out in the third and were not bad. We were holding on to the pucks more. Obviously you are not happy about that.

“It’s always nice to get points immediately, but when you look back you see where you could have been better.”

This will be true for many people at the Hawks.

They fell to devastating pressure from the Canes on Monday in Carolina, but that was a glimpse of the future they see for themselves.

“They all believed in forechecking, getting pucks deep and hanging on to pucks,” Ryan Donato said.

“We have some very fast forward players in our team, so hopefully we can get some of that and we know that if we play hard, check in advance and be fast and fast everywhere, it stifles the other team a little bit and you create resentment from that.

The Hawks gave the Canes a little taste of their own medicine in the third period, which led to two power play goals.

“There’s nothing to lose going into the third period,” Kevin Korchinski said. “Obviously we were a lot of goals behind, so we might as well risk it all.”

Korchinski said he’d like to see the Hawks bottle some of that without falling into a four-goal deficit.

“When we were playing our game, you could see that we could play with that team,” he said. “We have to play the full 60 minutes and start hard.”

Here are five things we learned.

1. Bedard does not give up because of lost goals.

For the second game in a row, one of Bedard’s goals did not stand up to scrutiny.

On Monday, Louis Crevier’s third-period goal was overturned due to his inability to keep the puck in the zone, meaning the Hawks were offside when Bedard scored.

There are three this season.

“Yeah, it’s crazy, right? I don’t know, so I guess Toronto doesn’t like me very much,” Bedard joked. “I mean, it’s out of my control and of course I’m trying not to get frustrated by it. It’s nice to get one after another, kind of cancel it out. But yeah, definitely one There was a couple.

The breakdown of goals conceded is as follows:

February 19: Coach’s challenge (Rod Brind’Amour) in the third period in Carolina, offside decision was made

17 February: Coach’s tackle (Jacques Martin) in the third period against Ottawa, ruled offside

24 October: Coach’s tackle (Jim Montgomery) in the first period against Boston, ruled offside

Hawks coach Luke Richardson felt for Bedard.

“I was watching the video last night and the look on his face says it all,” Richardson said. “In the bubble (face mask) his eyes look even angrier.

“He’s probably disappointed, probably a little of both. But you know what, it’s good. “He had three points last night and could easily have had four or five if we could have withstood a little more pressure.”

2. Spencer Martin runs out of beef.

Anyone have a falling out between 6-foot-9 rookie forward Bedard and 6-3 journeyman goaltender Spencer Martin on the 2024 bingo card?

It all started in the second period when Dmitry Orlov pushed Bedard into Martin.
