SenShot’s Around the NHL will recap last night’s game action and update you on any news from around the NHL.
With seven games on the schedule for your Thanksgiving viewing last night, the hockey season is in full swing. Let’s take a look at last night’s action.
The Stanley Cup champs played their third game of the season in defense of their title, and they have not lived up to their billing. Sporting a 1-2-0 record, the B’s have yet to find their form that helped them raise Lord Stanley.
Colorado on the other hand got their first win of the season and young Semyon Varlamov is proving that the Avs management are smarter than we thought. Paying a huge price for him in the off-season, Varlamov stole the game and made 30 saves for the shutout. Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
With both teams looking for their first win of the year, the Devils were able to ride their big guns to victory. Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk combined for three goals and five points as the Devils look to get off to a better start then last year’s horrendous outing. Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
In a game between two potential lottery pick teams, the Islanders were able to squeak out a victory for their first “W” of the year. Surprise starter Al Montoya made 20 saves as he has played in both of the Islanders games so far. Good to see hard work being rewarded on the Island. Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
With the Flames going with Henrik Karlsson in nets hoping for a different result, they ended up again with five goals in the back of their net. Starting the season 0-2, the Flames look to be in trouble in the very tight Western Conference.
On a positive note, Jarome Iginla scored his 485th career goal to push him into a tie for 45th all time in goals, and sole possession of 75th all time in points. Congrats Iggy! Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
In another battle of potential lottery teams, the Coyotes and Stars played in front of a crowd just a little over 6,000 in Phoenix. Can anyone smell Relocation! Not much to report from this game as Mike Riberio scored a nice shootout goal for the win. Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
In a rematch of last year’s second round playoff battle between these two, it was a barn burner as both teams decided playing defense was overrated. With Tomas Volkun getting his first start in nets after sitting in the season opener, he gave no reason to give the Caps coaching staff to put in back in there anytime soon. With three horrible goals scored from the goal line, Volkun was lucky to escape with the shootout victory. Interestingly enough, with ten goals scored between the two teams, potential Rocket Richard winners Alex Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos did not scored a goal, and both have yet to light the lamp this season. Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
With Vancouver looking for their first win of the year, they found it in the lonely Blue Jackets. With Columbus starting the year off 0-2 after their huge off-season of trades and signings, this loss that pushes them to 0-3 may start the chatter of changes in the organization.
Vancouver turned to Cory Schneider this game and he was able to get the team’s first victory ater Roberto Luongo put up a stinker against Pittsburgh. Let the goalie Check out the game highlights from NHL.com.
