Dusseldorf While most Europeans are asleep, the North American professional leagues are busy. What happened that night in American football, basketball and ice hockey. Today among other things: a mistake by NHL star Leon Draisaitl.
Ice hockey: Despite Draisaitl template: Oilers mess up in Dallas
Ice hockey star Leon Draisaitl has suffered a setback with the Edmonton Oilers in the North American professional league NHL. Despite an assist from the 26-year-old, the Canadians lost 4-1 to the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night. The submission to the interim 1: 3 by Ryan McLeod (31st) was Draisaitl’s 18th in the current season. With an additional 18 goals on the account, the German is still the best scorer in the league.
Draisaitl’s congenial partner Connor McDavid (32 scorer points) stayed in Dallas for the first time in this season without a goal participation. The Oilers, who lost again after two wins, are now in second place in the Pacific Division with 26 points. However, they have played two games fewer than leaders Calgary Flames (29 points).
Basketball: Mavericks win in Doncic comeback against Clippers
Luka Doncic led the Dallas Mavericks to a hotly contested win over the Los Angeles Clippers on his comeback. Two days after the defeat on Sunday, the exceptional Slovenian basketball player scored 26 points in the second game against the Clippers at 112: 104 after extra time. Doncic had missed the previous three games due to problems with his knee and ankle and was immediately the linchpin of the Mavericks on his return on Tuesday evening (local time). But he couldn’t prevent his team from losing a five-point lead in the last five seconds of regular time and having to push an additional shift.
With ten wins and eight defeats, the Mavericks overtook the Clippers in the Western Conference, who have one more defeat on the account. National player Maxi Kleber recorded eight counters, nine rebounds and six assists in more than 35 minutes in his second game since recovering from an abdominal muscle injury. Only his second free throw, 1.9 seconds before the end of regular time, gave the Clippers the chance to equalize with the last throw and overtime. Paul George hit the three to 103: 103.
Paul had a total of 26 points, Reggie Jackson posted 31 for the Clippers. Isaiah Hartenstein used his almost eleven minutes of playing time effectively and came up with four points, five rebounds and a template.
Without the suspended superstar LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers lost at the New York Knicks. The 100: 106 was the fourth defeat in the last five games for the record champions, who are still having a hard time after a quarter of the season. James was suspended because he hit his opponent in the face when he beat the Detroit Pistons and was thrown off the pitch.
Soccer: Mukhtar brace – Nashville wins playoff opener in MLS
The Berlin Hany Mukhtar shot his club Nashville SC almost single-handedly into the second round of the MLS playoffs. The 26-year-old footballer scored in the 3: 1 (1: 1) against Orlando City on Tuesday evening (local time) in the 21st minute to equalize and finally in the 74th minute to 2-1. For Mukhtar, who is one of the candidates for the most valuable player of the season award, it was the fifth game with at least two goals this season. His team-mate Jhonder Cadiz put the finishing touches in stoppage time.
In the semifinals of the Eastern Conference, Nashville will face Philadelphia Union on Sunday with the German Kai Wagner in the squad. Philadelphia had prevailed 1-0 against the New York Red Bulls. The third German in the MLS playoffs, Florian Jungwirth, was eliminated with the Vancouver Whitecaps after the 1: 3 against Sporting Kansas City at the weekend.
