Game 3 @ Philadelphia Oct 8

Game three of the season opening road trip, one more at Tampa Bay, then back to Sunrise for a couple games in the friendly confines... As agreed at the morning skate Coach Ramsey wanted to dress LW Jesse Winchester (6.5a/6.5a) in place of LW Sean Bergenheim (6.5a/6.5a)to see if the defense was any better from that position. Obviously unhappy Sean Bergenheim just shrugged and said he was a professional and just needed to work harder to gain our trust. Jesse Winchester was obviously delighted and had a noticeable jump in his stride at practice.

The first period was a lot of middle ice play by both teams, until a quick line change called by Coach Ramsey caught the Flyers with only one defenseman back and RW Bobby Butler scored his first goal of the season. Only 38 seconds later another quick line change and a great clearing pass by D Eric Gudbranson led to a tic-tac-toe goal by Butler with his linemates again picking up the assists. That quieted the Wells Fargo Center and the normally boisterous crowd never got back in the game.

The final score was 4 -0 and First Star G Tim Thomas turned away all 28 shots. LW Jonathan Huberdeau scored the Panthers first short handed tally this season late in the third period and the Panthers peppered Flyers starter G Steve Mason with 44 shots.

SCORES
COL - 6 TOR - 1 The Avalanche used two PP goals and three goals in the third period to pull away and dominate the Maple Leafs. Six different players scored for the Av's and G Semyon Varlamov (8.0c/8.0c) stopped 28 or 29 shots for his third straight win
CAR - 5 PIT -3 LW Nathan Gerbe (6.5b/7.0b) and RW Alexander Semin (8.0b/8.0b)each scored twice as Pittsburgh remained winless this season. The Hurricanes G Cam Ward (8.0b/8.0b) had to virtually stand on his head as the Penguins fired 14 shots in the final 20 minutes and yet it was the Hurricanes who scored the final two goals on just five shots to get and seal the win.
NJD - 3 VAN - 2 All five goals were scored in a exciting first period, then tight checking defenses and great goaltending by both backup goalies over the next 40 minutes made the score final.
ARZ - 7 NYI - 5 Coyotes players RW Radim Vrbata (7.5b/7.5b) had two goals and an assist, and D Derek Morris (7.5c/7.5c) contributed three assists in a wide open affair that wasn't as close as the score indicated.
TBY - 3 BUF - 4 the surprising Sabres are 3-1 on the season after getting by visiting Tampa Bay on a shootout winning goal by RW Steve Ott (7.5c/7.5c) Lightning RW JT Brown (6.5c/6.5c)scored two goals and an assist helping secure a point for the so far winless Bolts.
NYR - 5 SJS - 1 The Rangers continued their west coast swing, this time dropping in the Shark Tank otherwise known as HP Pavilion. The Blueshirts showed no kindness to the host team, jumping out to a three to zero score after one period and just increasing the pressure throughout the game. G Henrik Lundqvist (8.5c/8.5c) made 29 saves and brought his GAA to 1.33 and his save percentage to an astounding .952 on the season!
MIN - 3 NAS - 1 Twelve minor penalties set the tempo of this game as all three Wild goals were scored via the PP. The outcome was in doubt until the last 10 minutes of the third period when four minor Predator penalties gave Minnesota its opportunity to ice the game and they did.

SCORES
CHI - 6 STL - 3 Bitter rivals clashed at Scottrade Center and the visitors used a second period for the ages to crush the Blues magical start of the season. Eight goals were scored by the teams in the second stanza, five of the goals went the Black Hawk's way, including two PP goals and an PP assist by C Jonathan Toews who surprisingly ended up a -2 on the night.
MTL - 5 CGY - 6 This matchup may not inspire a rivalry like the Maple Leafs for the Canadiens, but don't tell the Flames that! 6 of the 9 penalties called were against the Flames and Montreal capitalized three times but still fell short against this inspired club. 18 y/o youngster C Sean Monahan (6.5b/8.0b) scored twice and D Chris Butler (7.0d/7.0d) had a PP tally and an assist ending with a +2 on the evening. LW Max Pacioretty (8.0b/8.0b) placed himself squarely in the scoring race with a hat trick including two PP goals.
OTT - 2 LAK - 0 G Craig Anderson (8.0b/8.0b) sparkled in a shutout performance, stopping 27 shots. RW Erik Condra (6.5d/6.5d) and C Jason Spezza (8.0d/8.0d) scored ES markers and each team squandered 5 power play opportunities in a chippy game.

Group Participation Blow...

For all the Monty Python fans....

Anyway - FEEDBACK!!! I see over 700 reads and greatly appreciate it, but no written feedback is disconcerting. I really want to hear what you think - yes even if its criticisms (constructive criticism preferred). I am certainly not a professional writer, but I am drawing on quips and comments I've heard over the 40+ years I've watched hockey games played and read the articles in the paper. AM I too chatty? Too little info? too many .jpg's? poor editing/ cropping skills? ( I KNOW I'm guilty of that one!)

I consistently see in Dynasties here and elsewhere that there is not enough background or stories to the teams. The second thing is people ask for updates on other teams than the Dynasty is portraying. I am attempting to do a nightly summary of all the games in the NHL and just by doing that, some anomalies I have discovered myself are that WAY more players having two goal games in the first week than happened IRL. Goalies play an additional two seconds in the games than the game clock allows. Reserve goalies pressed into service during games do not get credit for the game in the summaries.That goalies apparently never get pulled for an extra attacker during games. are these gamebreakers? Not hardly.

For those that want NHL stats I will be posting the jpg's of the skater and goalie leaders pages on the 1st and 15th of each month. While I have my own style and certainly some will not like my writing, I am willing to adapt and try to give the readers what they want.

Thanks for reading!

Game 4 @ Tampa Bay Oct 10th

Tired of living out of suitcases, the team is very lackluster at morning skate. The coaching staff is just as bad and after an hour of this nonsense Bonehead has seen enough, he calls the practice to a close, tells the team to get some rest and be back on the buses at 430pm.
There is a particularly nasty exchange between Coach McCabe and Coach Tyulin but they break apart before Bonehead can make it across the room to them. Neither offers any reason for the exchange just a difference of opinion they both say. Coach Ramsay suggests C Shawn Matthias (6.5/6.5)get a break, so C Drew Shore (6.0/7.0)can shake off some rust. LW Sean Bergenheim is reinstated to the lineup and LW Jesse Winchester goes back to the bench with a pat on the butt. Neither defensive coach has any recommendations for changes.

The opening period is very similar to the previous three games with a decent shot advantage and this time no score after one period. The second period sees Scott Gomez stuff home a PP rebound for his second goal of the season as the equalizer from an earlier TB score. Shots after two periods are a comfortable 26-17 lead.

During the intermission the earlier words between the coaches flare back up again and this time Bonehead is there to hear it... Coach Tyutin is convinced we need to move our best defensive pairing to the top line and give them major minutes to keep the shots down in the third period, Coach McCabe is believing the current set-up will work fine and the previous games are history. Bonehead sets them both apart and agrees they will modify the lineup but D Gudbranson and D Weaver will play the second pairing and with equal minutes to D Campbell and D Gilbert .

The grand defensive plan doesn't work out quite the way we hoped. Although the Bolts shots on goal are limited to just six in the third period, the Gudbranson/Weaver pairing are on the ice when Tampa scores the go ahead goal with 5:50 remaining. We don't get the equalizer and the Lightning are off the schneid with thier first win of the season.

The post game press conference is short and Bonehead admits he's not happy with the offense getting 36 shots and only scoring one goal, but notes the goal is a PP goal and obviously the coaching had everything to do with that. The room breaks up with laughter as intended. Bonehead closes out the conference with the reminder that they get some home cooking tomorrow against Pittsburgh and the chance to correct the problems.

SCORES
COL - 3 BOS - 2 The Bruins can't make a early first period goal by D Zdeno Chara (9.0c/9.0c) hold up and fall behind in the second period to three ES goals by the Av's. Both goalies close the door in the third period and the Avalanche continues its four game unbeaten streak.
ARZ - 2 DET - 3 G Jimmy Howard (7.5d/8.0d) let in 2 PP goals but stopped 38 other shots in getting a narrow win over the Coyotes. He is another goalie on a tear, sporting a 1.33 GAA and an impressive .963 save percentage.
WPG - 1 MIN - 2 The Wild made a two goal first period lead hold up and Josh Harding stopped 35 of 36 shots to drop the hard luck Jets to 1 - 3 on the season.
NYR - 4 ANA - 1 LW Benoit Pouliot scored first then spent the rest of the game in the penalty box, or so it seemed, as he had three minor penalties in the game. G Henrik Lundqvist is still crazy good allowing one goal and lowering his GAA to 1.25 and upping his save percentage to .957.
CBL - 3 BUF - 4 The surging Buffalo Sabres won for the fourth time, this time building a three goal lead and then surviving a furious third period comeback effort by the Blue Jackets. First Star LW Thomas Vanek (8.0d/8.0d) had a goal and an assist in the win.
MTL - 2 EDM - 3 The Habs used a two goal performance by LW Alex Galchenyuk to get an OT point in a downright nasty penalty filled game. 11 penalties were called in the regular session, seven against Montreal, before RW Jordan Eberle (8.0b/8.0b) scored a PP goal on yet another Montreal penalty in OT.
CAR - 3 WAS - 1 The Hurricanes won behind 29 y/o G Cam Ward (8.0b/8.0b) who turned away 35 or 36 shots to get his third win.
TOR - 3 NAS - 2 Maple leaf C Nazem Kadri (7.5b/8.0b) and Predator C Mike Fisher (7.5c/7.5c) both scored once and had an assist in this shootout thriller. *** Shootout was wrong, extra TOR shooter scored after first 6 was allowed even though only TOR. Cody Franson scored on 5th shot. ***
SJS - 2 VAN - 5 Canucks RW Alex Burrows (7.5d/7.5d) and RW David Booth (6.5d/6.5d) both scored twice in a easy win over the Sharks at home. Booth's goal a game pace through the first five games cannot possibly last, but is good at keeping him a scoring leader in the NHL race.

Game 5 vs Pittsburgh Oct 11th

Walking in at 7:30 am Bonehead is surprised to see both defensive coaches have obviously been there at least a few hours. Questioning whats up, they say they worked out a compromise plan for the defense and want me to sign off on it. Campbell/Gilbert remains the top pair with Gudbranson/Weaver moving up to second pairing and Kulikov/Gilroy dropping to third pairing. Since both coaches agree with this plan I quickly agree to try it tonight. "Thats not all" they say They want a little extra muscle in the lineup tonight so Colby Robak will play in place of Gilroy who is our least physical D man. The minutes played will strongly skew towards the top four with Kulikov and Robak essentially spelling the top four. Again its their show I tell them. Coach Ramsay will be out today on an approved leave day. (HIPPA rules you understand) but will be there tonight, he left his changes in an envelope and I implement the changes before the morning skate. C Gomez and LW Fleischmann move to the top line, while youngsters LW Huberdeau and C Bjugstad move to 2nd line to counteract the "Crosby effect".

The first period is a very nice surprise, we are finally outshot for the period 12-10, but four of our shots find the back of the net! Most surprisingly the new defensive pairing result in Kulikov/Robak being a plus three for the period and Kulikov scoring just :18 into the game. (even though it's only an impossible :02 seconds after the first FLA goal...)

The Penguins use the second period to storm back into the game on two goals by RW James Neal (8.0a/8.0a). The good news is we held the Pens to 7 shots on goal and we closed the shots gap to one at 19 -18.

What a third period!, 16,864 fans are treated to a three goal third period and seven goals on the night! The final score is 7 - 3 and the players are mobbing each other by G Tim Thomas... There is definitely a feeling of relief among the coaches and we savor the moment before heading to the dressing room.
C Shawn Matthias (6.5a/6.5a)and C Nick Bjugstad (7.0a/8.0a) both score twice tonight, while First Star D Brian Campbell (8.0a/8.0a) had two assists and a plus three rating for the evening.

SCORES
ARZ - 4 PHI - 5 The Flyers taking 8 of 10 penalties in the game does not sound like a winning formula. Flyers C Brayden Schenn had two goals including a PP tally and a helper to get Philly it's first win of the season. Coyotes C Mike Riberio (7.5b/7.5b) also scored twice, and the Yotes had 3 PP tallies in the losing effort.
NYI - 0 CHI - 2 Backup G Nikolai Khabibulin (6.5c/6.5c) got the start and the shutout, turning away 24 shots, and D Duncan Keith (9.5b/9.5b) and C Jonathan Toews (9.5b/9.5b) provided the offense for the undefeated Blackhawks fourth win.
LAK - 2 CAR - 6 The Kings were not treated like royalty by the hometown Hurricanes. LW Alexander Semin (8.0b/8.0b) got the hat trick with an assist and D Mike Komisarek (6.5d/6.5d) had three helpers in dismantling the visitors from the west coast.
DAL - 1 WPG - 3 If there wasn't bad blood before this game - there is now! Hooking, holding, roughing and various cheap shots finally boiled over into a early third period heavyweight match between DAL Antoine Roussel and WPG Zach Bogosian who went at it for almost three minutes before refs were able to separate the two. The teams still hacked and tripped each other right to the final buzzer and glares were plentiful as the refs stayed on the ice til the teams retired to their respective locker rooms.
NJD - 2 CAL - 4 Defense was definitely an afterthought tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome arena. NJ fired 41 shots in the contest to Calgary's 39 shots and CAL RW David Jones (6.5c/6.5c) had a goal and an assist to pace the winners. NJ fell to 2 - 3 on the season and Calgary improved to 3 - 2.

A trade virgin no "moore"

The surprising news came in a funny way. When I last logged out of FHM the news inbox was empty. When I opened the inbox today the news below appeared!

Bonehead makes the early morning call to the owner, who sleepily approves the deal. Confirmation e-mails to Craig MacTavish and the NHL offices are prepared and sent... Equipment personnel are instructed to clear up Upshall's locker and make it ready for it's new occupant. The players entrance security team is assigned the responsibility to intercept Scottie when he arrives at the arena, since he already left his house this morning. The anticipation builds in Bonehead as his coaches start coming into the "war room".

EDM - 3 TOR - 4 The Oilers used two third period goals by LW Taylor Hall (8.5d/9.5d) to force the game into overtime, but D Cody Franson (6.5b/7.5b) again provided the shootout winner to give the home team two points. ( Note the shootout format again allowed a 7th shot after Franson's goal was scored on the sixth shot.)
COL - 2 WAS - 6 Alex Ovechkin (9.5b/10.0b) had two goals including a PP tally and a three point night, while C Nicklas Backstrom (8.5d/8.5d) added three helpers to give the Capitals their first win of the season.
NYR - 3 STL - 1 Rangers LW Chris Kreider (7.0c/7.5c) had a Gordie Howe hat trick - a goal, an assist, and a fight, (actually two fights) to continue the magical road trip. G Henrik Lundqvist's early season stats are just staggering, 1.20 GAA and a .957 save percentage.
MTL - 6 VAN - 2 The Canadiens bracketed three goals into the first and third periods to overwhelm their opponents tonight. C David Desharnais (7.0d/7.5d) scored and had two assists to lead the Habs scoring.
PHI - 4 DET - 3 The visiting Flyers tied the game early in the third period and then survived OT with RW Wayne Simmonds (8.0c/8.0c) shootout score making the difference at Joe Louis Arena.
BOS - 2 CBL - 1 Bruins RW Jarome Iginla (8.0d/8.0d) had the GWG in the third period and D Zdeno Chara (9.0c/9.0c) scored another first period goal to pull past the tough Blue Jackets squad.
NYI - 4 NAS - 5 The Predators jumped out to a 4 goal lead in the first period and then struggled all game holding off the furious comeback attempt by the Islanders. Nashville's RW Patric Hornqvist (7.5b/7.5b) scored twice and C Mike Fisher (7.5c/7.5c) added three helpers in the win.
OTT - 3 SJS - 1 Newcomer D Jake Gardiner (6.5b/7.5b) scored the insurance goal in the third period leading his team past the frustrated 1 - 4 Sharks squad.
PIT - 3 TBY - 1 RW James Neal (8.0a/8.0a) has scored twice in his last two games, this time successfully leading the Pens past the Bolts.
BUF - 3 CHI - 2 The surging Sabres (5- 1) used two third period loads by LW Marcus Foligno (7.0b/8.0b) and D Jaime McBain (7.0b/7.0b) to get past the previously undefeated Blackhawks (4 -1) at Chicago's United Center Arena.
DAL - 2 MIN - 1 The visiting Stars got the GWG from C Cody Eakin (6.5b/7.5b) in the second period and G Dan Ellis (6.5a/6.5a) made the lead stand up for the teams second win.

In other NHL news;
FLA - The Panthers announced that they completed a trade with the Oilers for the services of RW Ales Hemsky (6.5a/6.5a) for RW Scottie Upshall (6.5a/6.5a). Sports radio stations in Edmonton were celebrating their "steal" of Upshall citing the "million dollar savings" and his recent play. Sunrise area sports talk was much more reserved saying both players were in the last year of their deals and it's too early to judge.
PIT - When C Evgeni Malkin (10.0b/10.0b) did not come out of the locker room for the third period, TV announcers replayed video of his big check and think he may have suffered an upper body injury as he only returned to the ice for two short shifts before the end of the period. No official announcement has been made.
CHI - The Blackhawks not only lost the game, they may have lost RW Marian Hossa (7.5d/7.5d) to an elbow injury. In the postgame interview the Chicago head coach reported that Hossa was still in the trainers room and it didn't look good for his dressing for the next game.
WIN - RW Blake Wheeler (8.0d/8.0d) left practice early and did not return. No report on the severity of any injury and no one was talking after practice either. Players leaving all uttered the same phrase "See the Head Coach" when asked about their teammate.
MIN - LW Zach Parise (8.5d/8.5d) made the surprise announcement after practice that he has a sore left wrist and may be out for a couple games. Team officials seemed surprised and scrambled to respond. The Wild finally issued a press release saying Parise may miss up to two weeks with the wrist injury.

Noted! It was just that "United Center" didn't sound like a complete sentence at the end. You are one sharp eyed Blackhawks fan!

BTW, see what I mean about the Sabres do well if I do not run the team? Six games in and they are leading the league in wins!

Game 6 vs. Los Angeles Oct 13th

When both defensive coaches are again sitting in the war room as Bonehead enters, "uh-oh" is his first thought... Setting his coffee down on the conference table, he grins at the coaches and says "what's shakin with our bacon?" Coach Tyulin looks at him blankly and Bonehead groans inwardly then quickly offers "what has you guys in here so early?" Coach Tyulin brightens and replies "We have come to a decision... Robak over Gilroy" and emphatically sets his coffee cup down! Bonehead glances at Coach McCabe who winces a little and then adds his agreement to the idea. Both coaches point out that the skills of both players are nearly identical and while overall they would like a better D man, having both players play exactly the same style isn't helping the team. With that, Bonehead asks them if Gilroy should be on the trade list and Coach Tyulin wastes no time agreeing... followed by Coach McCabe.

The opening lines have been set and Coach Ramsay inserts newcomer RW Ales Hemsky on the first line with C Gomez and LW Fleischmann who are the most offensively gifted and he sticks them together to see if there is any chemistry. All four lines are starting the game at equal time (15 mins) and Robak gets his second start on D while the previous set up of the top four getting 25 mins + the bulk of special teams will stay.

Finally the opening faceoff puck is ready to be dropped and... After one period the Panthers are already down 2-0. Shots are nearly equal at 11-10 Panthers and Gomez is given a questionable diving penalty that led to a Kings PP goal. The 1st line is now 20 mins and the third line is down to 10 mins. Defense is reverted to Kulikov/Robak is now 2nd pair and Gubranson/Weaver are back to third pair and all three pairings are at 20 mins. the third pair remain on PP/PK special teams.

The second period is definitely leaning the Panthers way as RW Brad Boyes scores an ES marker and the shot advantage grows for the Panthers to 22-17. Bonehead goes crazy when RW Dan Carcillo (7.0a/7.0a) virtually chases down and runs over LW Jonathan Huberdeau (7.0a/8.0a) to welcome him to the league. Huberdeau wastes no time and drops the gloves with Carcillo, but is clearly not in the same class as the noted pugilist. 1st Line and 4th line are given 20 min shifts and the 2 & 3rd lines have 10 mins each. Defense is same for the third period.

The tightly played third period yields no goals for either team and LA skates away with the victory. Bonehead defends the play of the team in the postgame press conference. There are several questions all coming back to continued offensive troubles, when the exasperated Bonehead interrupts and points out they just scored 7 goals the last game! He further points out that the Kings are considered a top team and they held that high flying offense to just two goals. No further questions occur and Bonehead wraps up the conference.

SCORES
ARZ - 0 CAR - 3 The Hurricanes get two PP goals in their fifth victory and G Cam Ward (8.0d/8.0d) picks up his fourth victory and first shutout of the season. Ward is hot with a 1.40 GAA and a .960 save percentage.
OTT - 4 ANA - 3 Sixty minutes weren't enough to decide the winner and who else but "Big Game" D Jake Gardiner (6.5b/7.5b) scores the shootout winner for the Senators.
NJD - 3 WPG - 2 Traded players seem to be having an immediate impact on their new teams, and that is true here as two third period goals edged the Devils past the Jets. C Shawn Horcuff (6.5a/6.5a) got the GWG with only 3:24 remaining and G Marty Brodeur (8.0c/8.0c) got his first win of the season turning aside 36 of 38 shots.

In other NHL news;
NJD - D Andy Greene (7.5c/7.5c) left the game against Winnipeg and following the game, coaching staff announced that Greene would be out for two to four weeks with an ankle sprain. A roster move is forthcoming.

Panthers Week 2 Oct

October 7th - 14th 2013

The weekly call to the owner goes well and even though the Panthers record is still a .500 winning percentage, he was happy with the close loss against LA and very happy with the blowout win against the Penguins. I update him on the players being offered as trade bait. and he cautions me that some of the deals should include draft choices to improve the future of the team.

As I hang up I suddenly realize I have not actually seen the owner since the press conference introducing me. Jo reported he stopped in briefly while we were on the road but did not stay long. Hmmm...

Here's the weekly stats;

SCORES
DET - 2 BOS - 4 Bruins C Patrice Bergeron's (8.5d/8.5d) two point night included a shorthanded tally in the third, restoring the Bruins two goal cushion. G Tukka Rask (9.0d/9.5d) frustrated the Red Wings turning away 40 of 42 shots for his fourth win this season.
EDM - 5 WAS - 6 Capitals RW Alex Ovechkin (9.5b/10.0b) made his hat trick all PP goals and the Cap's LW Martin Erat (7.5c/7.5c) got the GWG with only 3:24 left in the game.
MIN - 2 BUF - 3 An evenly played game went all the way to the shootout before Sabres RW Drew Stafford (7.5c/7.5c) scored on the teams third shootout opportunity, and Wild LW Zach Parise's (8.5d/8.5d) sore wrist probably hurt his chance as the puck rolled off the blade on his attempt.

In other NHL news;
DET - D Kyle Quincey (6.5b/6.5b) got hurt in practice and insiders are saying he suffered a serious arm injury. No particulars are available yet but expect a roster move soon.
VAN - LW Tom Sestito (6.5d/6.5d) was placed on the IR by Canucks management who cited an upper body injury as the reason. There was no timetable for Tom's return and insiders deny any prior knowledge of the injury or when it occurred.

Bruins interested?

A chance phone call to the Boston GM Peter Chiarelli while following up on some prospects from their deep farm system, led to trade talks and possibly a trade. Touting Daniel Paille to me and acknowledging he was the odd man out on the LW in Boston, would I be interested in him? I offered D Gilroy and he laughed, "With what else?" he replied. Scanning my roster I notice that LW Bergenheim is $2.75M and not producing and both players are defensively oriented so surprising me he told me to write it up and send it to him for his consideration.

Game 7 @ Nashville Oct 15th

Due to a late arriving flight in Nashville, the team must do a short practice then get ready for the game. Bonehead jumps into the gameplan as soon as the coaches have the players skating drills set. Defensive coaches want to remain with the top four getting the bulk of the minutes and Bonehead is agreeable. Coach Ramsay also is advising no changes for this game, but cautions everybody that Nashville is a dangerous team even though its not showing up on the scoresheet yet.

15,887 is the announced crowd at Bridgestone Arena and its loud and rocking as the opening faceoff occurs. Predators C David Legwand (7.5b/7.5b) opens the scoring from the near post on a rebound past G Tim Thomas who had no chance. Surprisingly the Panthers answer right back just 10 seconds later when RW Ales Hemsky (6.5a/6.5a) lights the lamp off the feed from Tomas Fleischmann. The first period ends with no more scoring and the Predators leading in shots 12-9.

The second period is pretty even until the Pred's young D Seth Jones (7.0b/8.5b) is called for hooking at the 9:42 mark. Hemsky tallies his second goal of the night on the PP and the Panthers have a slim 2 - 1 lead. Things get testy late in the period when the Predators captain D Shea Weber (9.0b/9.5b) gets called for a major penalty for an illegal check to the head that will be surely reviewed by the league disciplinarians. The PP is productive but also gives up a SH tally before the end of the period. The Panthers have the lead 3 - 2 and have caught up in shots and now lead by a slim margin of 20 - 19 after two periods.

Bonehead makes defensive changes in the 2nd intermission and all three blueline pairs will get equal ES ice time, over Coach Tyulin's obvious displeasure. This turns out to be a good move as the third period plays a much more physical style from the Predators. The first fight breaks out in front of the Panthers net after Pred's C Legwand takes an extra whack at a covered up puck and Colby Robak showed him why that's not a good thing to do. Less than three minutes later Nashville LW Richard Clune (6.0b/6.5b) offers to drop the gloves with Panthers D Eric Gudbranson (7.0a/7.5a) while the coaching staff is screaming for Gudbranson to skate away, Gudbranson ignores them and engages Clune for the second fight of the period. Bonehead is seething and now only has four D for the next two minutes and five D-men for the next five. Fortunately for the Panthers C Shawn Matthias (6.5a/6.5a) finds the back of the net just after the penalties expire and provides the breathing room as the game ends 64 seconds later.

Boneheads post game conference is riddled with questions about the recent acquisition scoring his first two goals in a Panthers uniform. He praises Hemsky but makes sure everyone is aware hockey is a team game and everybody pitched in to make this victory possible. Bonehead heaps praise on the 4th checking line for completely shutting down the Predators 1st line tonight.

SCORES
MIN - 3 TOR - 4 The Minnesota Wild are quickly gaining a reputation as the "Cardiac Kids" after spotting the Maple Leafs a three goal lead after two periods then storming back to tie it in the third period. The final point went to the home team however, D Cody Franson (6.5b/7.5b) gets the shootout winner for the Leafs. LW Matt Cooke (6.5b/6.5b) led the Wild's comeback with a goal and an assist but was not rewarded with a shootout spot in the lineup.
EDM - 3 PIT - 2 Pittsburgh's PP units went 1 for 8 tonight and probably cost the team the win as a steady stream of Oilers were sent to the sin bin all game long. Oilers LW Ryan Smyth (6.5d/6.5d) had a goal and an assist for the winners and G Jason LaBarbera (6.0b/6.0b) got the win, turning aside 28 of 30 shots.
LAK - 2 TBY - 3 The Kings east coast swing still is suffering after falling short in Tampa Bay. Lightning RW JT Brown scored and had an assist while unheralded Bolts D Radko Gudas (6.5a/7.0a) led the team with a +2 and also got a helper in the contest.
MTL - 3 WPG - 4 The Canadiens finished their Canada cross country tour falling short in Winnipeg. C Mark Scheifele (6.5d/8.0d) was first star of the game with a hat trick and G Al Montoya (6.5d/6.5d) allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the win.
BUF - 0 NYI - 2 The high flying Sabres came into Nassau Co. Veterans Memorial Coliseum looking to continue their early season success, but ran into a brick wall named G Evgeni Nabokov (7.0b/7.0b) who stopped all 35 shots fired at him. The game was knotted up through two periods when C Casey Cizkas (6.5b/7.5b) and C Frans Nielsen (7.5b/7.5b) scored ES markers to give the Isles the win.
CHI - 0 CAR - 2 The Hurricanes have passed another tough test this time handing the favored Chicago Blackhawks a shutout loss. G Cam Ward (8.0b/8.0b) turned aside 34 shots and was easily in control as his defensemen kept the crease clear all night even through 7 power play opportunities. Both teams combined for 11 penalties and two fights.
SJS - 3 STL -1 The hard luck Sharks made a two goal first period stand up and cruised to their second victory this season on strength of G Antti Niemi's (8.0b/8.5b) strong goaltending.
DAL - 1 COL -2 LW Ryan O'Reilly (8.0b/8.5b) and RW P.A. Parenteau (7.5d/7.5d) both scored ES goals and G Semyon Varlamov (8.0c/8.0c) stopped 34 of 35 shots while getting the teams fifth victory in six games.
VAN - 3 PHI - 4 D Luke Schenn (7.0a/7.5a) scored the GWG with just :48 seconds left in regulation. This win was the Flyers third consecutive, this time over the visiting Canucks.
CLB - 1 DET - 5 Both teams traded goals in a tightly contested first two periods. The Red Wings then blew open the game on the strength of four 3rd period ES goals. C Pavel Datsyuk (9.5c/9.5c) netted two goals and three points overall to get the games first star. Wings backup G Jonas Gustavsson (6.5b/6.5b) made 34 saves for his first win of the season.
OTT - 2 ARZ - 8 LW Mikkel Boedker (7.5c/8.0c) scored twice, C Mike Riberio (7.5b/7.5b) added 3 assists and the Yotes got 4 goals in the third period to easily pull away with the win.

In other NHL news;
STL - C Adam Cracknell (6.0/6.5c) left practice early and from witnesses said he seemed to be favoring his back, No report from management yet on any injury or severity at this time.
COL - C Paul Stastny (8.0b/8.0b) was put on his teams injury report with upper body injury, his timetable for return is cloudy with a chance of meatballs...(just checking if your paying ANY attention)
