Lucas Raymond’s three-game heater has earned him some honors from the NHL:

Raymond, who still can’t legally buy a beer in the US, put up SEVEN points in that three-game span. The same exact stat line as Nikita Kucherov.
It’s just a few games, but it’s good to see Raymond get hot after a slow start to the season.

Alex Nedeljkovic has officially cleared waivers, but he didn’t get the start in this one. Instead, Victor Brattstrom had a strong game which was much-needed. Another positive was seeing Jakub Vrana pick up five shots on net. Vrana has registered one point in eight appearances with the Griffins.
