Welcome to the weekend edition of Puck Dumps. It's like the week day edition, but you won't read it until Monday! The Top Line It's a three way tie! Multiple stories had multiple outlets giving them "top story" status. The Senators topped the Sabres in a thrilling 1-0 battle. ESPN, Yahoo! The Local Take  In a battle between two of the top draft choices from this summer, Nathan McKinnon's Avs defeated Seth Jones' Predators, Sports Illustrated, NHL.Com, The Local Take Lastly, Canada seems awfully proud of the Jets knocking off the Kings. Oddly enough, the Winnipeg Free Press made me work to find the story TSN, CBC, The Local Take   Scoreboard Ottawa 1, Buffalo 0 - One goal so far for the Sabres. Have we considered that they might not be very good? Oh, we have? Detroit 3, Carolina 2 (OT) - Stephen Weiss, the Red Wings acquisition that nobody remembered, scored the game winner. At this pace, the Red Wing will go undefeated against the eastern conference. Calgary 4, Columbus 3 - If the Flames keep this up, fans of offensive teams will be pretty exited to watch Calgary's games. New York Islanders 4, New Jersey 3 (SO) - The Islanders travel all the way to New Jersey to sort of win their season opener. Also, shootouts are stupid. Winnipeg 5, Los Angeles 3 - A reminder that this was the biggest game in Canada last night Colorado 3, Nashville 1 - Patrick Roy kept it in check Friday night.   Tweet of the Moment   Golf legend @jacknicklaus dropped the ceremonial first puck at last night's @BlueJacketsNHL game. Watch it here: http://t.co/2l0aokFcnH — NHL (@NHL) October 5, 2013 The Blue Jackets retweeted this, because would like to make everyone aware that they had at least one fan at their game last night. In honor of that, they let him drop the puck.
