NHL Nightly Video Recap 10/21/2013

Apparently the teams playing in the NHL last night didn’t get the memo.  We made the nets smaller, we made the goalie pads smaller.  We want you to score more.  With three games on the schedule, and two shutouts – it doesn’t appear that goal scoring is up in the 2013-2014 season.  Here is your morning video look at last nights NHL action.

San Jose Sharks (8-0-1) vs Detroit Red Wings (6-3-1)

Not only was this a shutout – both teams technically get the credit for blanking the other team as it took a shootout to break the stalemate between the Sharks and the Red Wings. Its officially 51 shots and 51 saves in the record book for this game as Antti Niemi and Jimmy Howard pitch perfect games – but alas, the NHL must have a victor each night.

Colorado Avalanche (8-1-0) vs Pittsburgh Penguins (7-2-0)

This was was solved in regulation – but again the goalies were the story line as Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Marc-Andre Fleury were a combined 47 saves on 48 shots. Colorado remains red hot in the West edging the Penguins with a goal by Gabriel Landeskog.

Calgary Flames (4-2-2) vs Los Angles Kings (6-4-0)
