SenShot's Around The NHL

SenShot’s Around the NHL will recap last night’s game action and update you on any news from around the NHL.

Last night featured a light NHL schedule with only two games on the board. Sunday saw two Western Canada teams kick off their respective seasons as the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets took to the ice.

For the first time in 15 years, Winnipeg fans saw NHL action in the “Peg. With a lot of hype and excitement going into the game, the result of the game could not put a damper on the mood of the crowd. Nik Antropov scored the first Winnipeg Jets goal in 15 years which will satisfy the Jets’ fans if he does nothing the rest of the season.

The good news from the game for the Habs was that Max Pacioretty scored his first goal of the year and since he suffered a fractured vertebrae in his neck after taking the huge hit from Zdeno Chara eight months ago. Carey Price also got his first “W” of the season after he lost the season opener to the Leafs.

The bad news for the Habs is that the injury bug has struck them once again as defenseman Jaroslav Spacek and Michael Cammalleri left the game with injuries. Spacek left after taking a hit from Evader Kane which now makes it three of the Habs starting six defensemen sitting on the sidelines. Cammalleri had his leg cut by his teammate’s skate and will probably be out at least two weeks.

Check out the game highlights.

The young Oilers squad kicked-off their 2011-2012 campaign against the team they hope to become in the near future. With their 2011 first round draft pick, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the line-up, he did not disappoint as he notched his first career NHL goal in his first career NHL game. With their first win of the season, the Oilers future looks bright.

With no Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin in the line-up, the Pens showed that without their two superstars on the ice, they will have a hard time beating one of the have-nots in the league. Hopefully Sid and Geno will be back soon.

Check out the game highlights.

 
In other league news, the Minnesota Wild‘s Pierre-Marc Bouchard has been suspended for two games for high-sticking to the face of Columbus forward Matt Calvert. Here’s NHL disciplinary Brendan Shanahan explanation for the suspension.
