It’s the start of the new hockey season and kicking off tomorrow morning will be the daily hockey recap of From Abdelkader to Zuccarello here on The Hockey Writers.
Check in every morning for game recaps you may have missed while you were sleeping and news and clips you may have missed.
Today will start off with scores and clips – tomorrow will launch the details of each game from the night before; but before we get to that I want to wish all the Canadian readers a Happy Thanksgiving.
While You Were Sleeping
New York Rangers 1; Anaheim Ducks 2 (SO)
Rangers dropped both games in Stockholm – the last NHL team to drop back to back games in The Globen was the Detroit Red Wings in the fall of 2008.
Buffalo Sabres 4; Los Angeles Kings 2
Sabres returning back stateside with two wins in Europe.
Tampa Bay Lightning 1; Boston Bruins 4
Ottawa Senators 5; Toronto Maples Leafs 6
Philadelphia Flyers 3; New Jersey Devils 0
Carolina Hurricanes 3; Washington Capitals 4 (OT)
Florida Panthers 2; New York Islanders 0
Nashville Predators 4; St. Louis Blues 2
Columbus Blue Jackets 2; Minnesota Wild 4
The new look of the Wild so far is a winner – the new look of the Blue Jackets not so much.
Dallas Stars 2; Chicago Blackhawks 5
Detroit Red Wings 3; Colorado Avalanche 0
The Avalanche drop their home opener to 90’s rival Red Wings on the night Peter Forsberg’s number was retired. Is it enough to bring back the once overly heated rivalry?
Pittsburgh Penguins 5; Calgary 3
Phoenix Coyotes 3; San Jose Sharks 6
