So, yes last nights game happened. A 9-2 drubbing at the hands of the San Jose Sharks. We could talk about positives. They scored on the powerplay, but that’s pretty much all I have. They went missing after Brad Richards third goal of the year, and to make matters worse, Rick Nash could be out for an extended amount of time. We’re hoping to get an update on his condition sometime later today, and when we do. You’ll hear it first.

Congratulations to both Filip Forsberg, and Seth Jones who both recorded their first points last night in the NHL. Forsberg scored his first NHL goal, while Jones assisted on his goal. Also a big congratulations goes out to Matt Niesto of San Jose for scoring his first, and Matt Donovan of the Islanders.

In the battle of former teammates, now enemies, Roberto Luongo and the Canucks defeated Cory Schneider and the Devils 3-2 in overtime. The game lived up to the hype, and Luongo and the Canucks got the last laugh. For the Devils, they are still looking for their first regulation win.

Also, picking up their first win of the season in the Craig Berube era, the Philadelphia Flyers. They defeated the Florida Panthers 2-1.

Finally, as we finish our trip around the NHL, Penguins forward Jussi Jokinen got a hat trick in last nights 5-2 victory against the Hurricanes.

Oh, this just in: Brad Stuart to talk with Brendan Shanahan and the department of players safety regarding his high shoulder hit on Rick Nash during last nights game.

Goal of the Night

Yes – it was Tomas Hertl, and while we may not like the move he did, and the reaction he made after it, it still was a fantastic goal. Here it is, for those who forget last nights game.
