Well folks, sorry I was mistaken in reading the schedule. There was a game last night; Wednesday, October 31st Pittsburgh (4-5-0) @ Washington (7-3-0) Pittsburgh dropped to below .500 in an absolute blowout. Washington reams Fleury. WSH 5 – 1 PIT Thursday, November 1st Detroit (5-4-0) @ Calgary (3-3-2) After a three game win streak to start the season, the Flames haven’t won one since. The Red Wings look to go streaking after a 3-2 win over Vancouver Tuesday night. Gustav Nyquist makes his season debut on left wing with Captain Henrik Zetterberg looking over him. The game would start off quickly, with only 2 minutes into the game, Mark Giordano would leave the game with a 5 minute boarding major, sending, Valtteri Filppula into the dressing room to be evaluated. The Red Wings could not capitalize during that powerplay, however at the ten minute mark, Danny Cleary (4) beat Kippursoff, on Filppula’s first shift back after being cleared, Filppula gained an assist. Not even one minute later, Henrik Zetterberg (3) would keep the pressure on, and scored on a onetimer right in front of the net. That would end the scoring for the period. In the second, Detroit kept with their gameplan and it paid off. Five minutes in, Niklas Kronwall (2) scored on the powerplay, with recent call up Gustav Nyquist assisting. Calgary would not go quietly, and cut the lead back to two and the halfway point of the game, with Matt Stajan (3) beating Howard. Jakub Kindl (1) would ice the game however, with less than a minute left in the period, he pinched in the offensive zone, got the pass back and beat Kippursoff for the final goal of the game. DET 4 – 1 CGY Three Stars: Danny Cleary (RW) – 1G, 2A, 4S, +3 Jimmy Howard (G) – 1.00 GAA, .966 SV%, 29 SA Henrik Zetterberg (C) – 1G, 1A, 3S, +2 Notes: CGY D Chris Butler will be injured for the next 4-5 weeks with a separated shoulder. In his first game against his former team, CGY C Jiri Hudler was a minus 2, with 1 SOG. Addendum: Danny Cleary currently is on a runaway lead for the points lead for the Wings. In 10 games he has 12 points, 4G, 8A. Other games: Colorado (3-6-1) @ Vancouver (5-4-2) In another Northwest division battle, the Avalanche look to right their ship against a struggling Canucks team. They certainly do not do so. VAN 4 – 0 COL Montreal (3-5-2) @ Edmonton (5-4-0) The red hot Canadiens go for four in a row, but perhaps the timezone gets to them as they get shut out by the Oilers. EDM 3 – 0 MTL Notes: EDM LW Ryan Smyth will be injured 8-9 weeks with a concussion. St. Louis (5-4-0) @ San Jose (3-4-2) The Blues just keep losing ground. They faced a struggling Sharks team, and Brian Elliot got embarrassed, a rough season perhaps for the one year wonder. SJS 5 – 2 STL Los Angeles (6-3-0) @ Minnesota (3-4-2) The Wild, so far lacking with their superstar summer, still can’t gain ground in what seems to be a tough division in the Northwest. They fall to the Kings. LAK 4 – 3 MIN SO New Jersey (1-6-1) @ Philadelphia (4-4-1) The Devils woes continue, as they lose to the Flyers. PHI 4 – 1 NJD Notes: PHI RW Danny Briere will be injured 4 weeks with a broken hand Dallas (6-3-1) @ New York Rangers (4-3-2) The Rangers are hitting a slump, they fall under .500 with a loss to the scalding Stars. DAL 2 – 1 NYR Boston (7-2-1) @ Toronto (4-2-2) Suffering their second loss of the year, the Bruins fall to the subpar Maple Leafs. TOR 2 – 1 BOS Phoenix (3-5-0) @ Buffalo (6-2-1) The Coyotes just don’t find an answer, as many teams haven’t this year, to league leader in SV% Ryan Miller (.955). BUF 3 – 0 PHX Winnipeg (5-3-0) @ Tampa Bay(4-4-0) In the biggest blowout of the year, the Bolts absolutely dissect the Jets defense. TBL 7 – 0 WPG
