Video- Filip Zadina's Night

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Filip Zadina made a smart play to get the puck in the offensive zone. He got open in front of the net, in position to receive the pass. He buried a one-timer. He celebrated like he never has before in his short time in the NHL.

The 20-year-old forward has made some big plays lately. This was his biggest.

Zadina snapped a tie with 3:52 remaining in regulation Tuesday, and the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 at Little Caesars Arena.

“I think it was one of my best moments so far,” Zadina said. “To be drafted, play here, score right now, so it’s living the dream. Just need a few goals and I’ll be fine.”

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Filip Zadina erupted in joy, dropping to one knee and pumping his right arm in the air as teammates rushed to embrace him.

It was as cool, as exhilarating, as satisfying a moment as Zadina has experienced since the Detroit Red Wings drafted him in 2018. He was projected to go as high as third but Montreal, Ottawa and Arizona all passed on him, and he vowed on draft night to fill their nets with pucks.

He has a chance to follow up with the Senators as they are in town Friday, but until then, Zadina can savor the one that stung the Canadiens. With four minutes to go in a tie game, Zadina one-timed the puck from the slot, sealing a 4-3 victory Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena.
