First a little old school talk with Ted Lindsay and Maurice Richard.
Below are the game notes...

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,
Frustration was evident among the Winnipeg Jets and their head coach Monday, a day after the team suffered its fourth straight loss during a demoralizing start to the NHL season.
They are struggling to score, haven’t managed a single power play goal in five games and have lost the last four by at least two goals during a 1-4 start.
from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,
As reporters crowded around Coyotes goalie Mike Smith following Monday's practice to gauge his psyche after yet another six goals-against Saturday, backup Devan Dubnyk quipped that Smith isn't the only one who's experienced a slide like this and he, too, could offer up some insight.
But Smith isn't looking to deflect...
from Nick Groke of the Denver Post,
Patrick Roy's yelling echoed off the walls of the Avalanche's practice rink Monday. That was between the team skating lap sprints.
After a rough, four-game road trip that left Colorado reeling, Avs coach Roy wasn't going easy on his slipping team.
"The way we practiced today, this is how we'll get back on track...
from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,
Here are Five Questions with … Jason Spezza:
Obviously it's a major adjustment going from Ottawa to Dallas, so what has it been like for you? Has it been strange, different, challenging? How would you describe the adjustment?
"I would say it's all of the above.
"The strange is starting to wear off. It's definitely...
Talent-wise, there’s not too much difference, to be honest.
-Nazem Kadri of the Toronto Maple Leafs, comparing himself with John Tavares of the New York Islanders. More on Kadri and the Leafs from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star.
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Six games into the new season, Nash is leading the NHL with seven goals. The Big Easy is finding open spaces and driving to the net, much as he did throughout his first nine seasons in Columbus and his first season in New York, the lockout-truncated 2012-13 in which he recorded 21 goals in 44 games.
Last year, Nash’s game changed...
The Detroit Red Wings kick off a busy week's worth of 3 games in 5 days tonight against the Montreal Canadiens (7:30 PM EDT on FSD/RDS/97.1 FM; the Wings are holding a 'viewing party' on Tuesday; the team will come home to host the Penguins during Hockey Fights Cancer night on Thursday, and play the Flyers in Philly on Saturday). Because both the Red Wings and their press...
Montreal heads into Tuesday's game with the Red Wings coming off an impressive 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The Habs dominated the Avs at times, and perhaps most importantly, Carey Price looked like his normal self after a slow start. PK Subban was especially brilliant, scoring two highlight reel goals, and the Canadiens banded together towards the end of the game, fighting...
This has absolutely nothing to do with the Red Wings, but it has everything to do with the human being I am and the cause I advocate for that hits closest to home.
Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens is parterning with several Canadian mental health organizations in order to raise awareness of and funds for--as Scrivens says in the attached video--the 1 in 5 Canadians who are...
The Red Wings practiced on Monday and flew to Montreal ahead of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens (7:30 PM on FSD/TVA Sports/97.1 FM), and the Wings were able to return Petr Mrazek to Grand Rapids as Jimmy Howard's good to go, and the Wings believe that Pavel Datsyuk is very close to returning to the lineup after missing nearly a month with a shoulder injury.
This is rather amusing, as noted by RedWingsFeed:

These developments are of great concern to our organization. We support the NHL’s decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely during this process, and we will continue to take appropriate action as the legal proceedings and the investigation by the NHL take their course.
Still updating the practice post, but now we know why the Red Wings haven't made any personnel moves to accommodate Pavel Datsyuk's return, per the Free Press's Helene St. James:
