San Jose Sharks 2 at New Jersey Devils 1 (SO)
Wins elude the Devs
But they know what to work on:
PP and face-offs.
Toronto Maple Leafs 6 at Columbus Blue Jackets 3
Even the winless win
When the true losers collide.
Congrats, Mike Babcock.
Carolina Hurricanes 5 at Detroit Red Wings 3
Nice game, Bruce McGinn
First goal in first game, first shift
And in a win, too.
Calgary Flames 1 at Winnipeg Jets 3
Slick moves from Byfuglien
He motors for a big man
The Jets are rolling.
St. Louis Blues 4 at Vancouver Canucks 3
Blues up three-nothing
Before the Canucks wake up
Meaningless late goals
Colorado Avalanche 3 at Anaheim Ducks 0
You know things are bad
When Berra can shut you out
Ducks are a tire fire.
Minnesota Wild 1 at Los Angeles Kings 2 (OT)
Kings get their first win
Past a damn strong Wild team
Anze in OT.
