The Buffalo Sabres had the night off after badly losing both the game and a little bit of what pride and dignity they had last night against the Boston Bruins, and will look to use a trip to the Sunshine State to turn some fortune around. That being said there were still twenty teams looking for two points in the standings. Here is your video recap of last nights NHL action.
San Jose Sharks (8-1-1) vs Boston Bruins (7-2-0)
The Boston Bruins were ready for the Buffalo Sabres – and still ready for the San Jose Sharks – giving San Jose their first regulation loss of the season with a 2-1 victory.
Vancouver Canucks (7-4-1) vs New Jersey Devil (1-5-4)
New Jersey picks up another point in the standings, but fails to bring in a win against the visiting Canucks who take the game in a shootout 3-2.
New York Rangers (2-6-0) vs Philadelphia Flyers (2-7-0)
The New York Rangers are closer to home, but still find it tough to get a win, this time even losing to the Flyers 2-1, hopefully all the renovations won’t make MSG feel like less of a home for the Rangers – or that ship could be sunk. New York visits Detroit before getting seven of their next ten games at the newly glossed MSG.
Anaheim Ducks (7-3-0) vs Montreal Canadiens (6-4-0)
Anaheim went seven in a row before losing one, and with the help of a 4-1 game drop their second game in a row, this time to the Habs.
Chicago Blackhawks (6-1-3) vs Tampa Bay Lightning (6-3-0)
Tampa ties the game for the Blackhawks, but come away with two points in the game by winning in overtime. Takes a little of the sting away, just a little.
Winnipeg Jets (4-5-2) vs Nashville Predators (6-4-1)
Nashville takes the Jets to overtime, and comes out with a 3-2 victory, in a former East vs West matchup, that should look like a West vs East matchup…oh nevermind.
Caroline Hurricanes (4-3-3) vs Minnesota Wild (5-3-3)
Carolina continues to stumble out the gate, this time dropping the decision to the Minnesota Wild 3-1.
Calgary Flames (4-4-2) vs Dallas Stars (4-5-0)
Lindy Ruff gets another win in the Big D as his Stars don’t pump the breaks as they soar to a 5-1 win over the Flames.
Washington Capitals (5-5-0) vs Edmonton Oilers (3-7-1)
Edmonton looks to strike oil at home, but only scores once as Alex Ovechkin and the Caps pull to .500 with a 4-1 win.
Phoenix Coyotes (6-3-2) vs Los Angeles Kings (7-4-0)
The Kings get 7 and a total of eleven goals are scored in a wide open affair in Hollywood.
