    Preview: Devils at Senators
    Gracenote
    Nov 6, 2018

    The New Jersey Devils earned a much-needed two points last time out and look to conclude their first set of back-to-back games of the campaign with a pair of victories when they visit the struggling Ottawa Senators on Tuesday. Brian Boyle recorded his first career hat trick as the Devils won 5-1 at Pittsburgh on Monday after dropping six of their previous seven contests (1-5-1).

    Defenseman Will Butcher registered a season-high three points in the triumph for New Jersey, which had been outscored 15-6 while losing its previous three contests, and captain Andy Greene blocked four shots while making his 800th NHL appearance. The Senators, who have earned at least one point in their last six matchups (4-0-2) against the Devils, have faded since a strong start to the season - registering just one win in their last seven contests (1-4-2) after a dispiriting 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. Ottawa surrendered a goal with 33 seconds left in regulation against the Eastern Conference-leading Lightning before giving up the winner just 14 ticks into the extra session. “As a group, collectively, we’ve got to take some ownership for our play and our results,” Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki told reporters. “It’s been a few too many years here for us where the players haven’t taken ownership. … We’re going through a rough patch here, and this is where it’s a true test of our personalities and a true test of the group we have in here.”

    TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, MSG Plus (New Jersey), TSN5, RDS2 (Ottawa)

    ABOUT THE DEVILS (6-5-1): Kyle Palmieri set up a goal to increase his team-leading total to 15 points while reigning Hart Trophy winner Taylor Hall notched his team-best 12th assist in Monday’s victory. Former third-round pick Joey Anderson recorded his first NHL point with an assist in his third game and Marcus Johansson registered his 200th career assist. Keith Kinkaid made 35 saves to post his sixth win of the season on Monday, which could give Cory Schneider (0-1-0, 3.24 goals-against average, .913 save percentage) the crease in Ottawa, but coach John Hynes reportedly has not committed to a starter.

    ABOUT THE SENATORS (5-6-3): Ottawa has yielded at least four goals in six of its last seven contests after recording three straight victories and is last in the league in goals allowed at 4.21 per game. Defenseman Thomas Chabot has collected four assists in his last three contests to push his team-leading total to 17 points and Mark Stone (99 career goals) has set up five goals in the same span to rank second with 13. Ottawa’s defense corps is averaging one goal per game and rookie blue-liner Maxime Lajoie scored on Sunday to pull even with Ryan Dzingel for the team lead with five tallies.

    OVERTIME

    1. Ottawa LW Mikkel Boedker has recorded an assist in three straight contests after enduring a four-game point drought.

    2. New Jersey C Travis Zajac is one assist shy of 300 for his career.

    3. The Senators are 4-for-9 on the power play over their last three games and ranked fifth in the league (27.3 percent) through Sunday.

    Preview: Canucks at Red Wings
    Gracenote
    Nov 5, 2018

    The Sedin twins were the face of the Canucks franchise for 18 seasons before retiring but starstruck Vancouver fans aren't seeing double anymore thanks to 19-year-old rookie Elias Pettersson. The fifth overall pick in the 2017 draft hopes to continue his fast start - nine goals in nine games - when the Canucks kick off their second six-game road trip of the season Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings.

    Pettersson, who like Henrik and Daniel Sedin hails from Sweden, became the youngest Vancouver player to record five points in a game when he had two goals and three assists in Friday's 7-6 overtime victory over Colorado. "We knew he was supposed to be a pretty good player. And he's been all of that," Canucks coach Travis Green told reporters about the 6-2, 165-pound Pettersson, who was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week on Monday and has 15 points despite missing six games with a concussion. Pettersson needed only 23 shots to become the 16th player in NHL history with at least nine goals in his first nine games and only the sixth after the league's inaugural season. Detroit is coming off a 4-3 loss to Edmonton on Saturday that snapped a three-game winning streak after a 1-7-2 start.

    TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, Sportsnet Pacific (Vancouver), FS Detroit

    ABOUT THE CANUCKS (9-6-0): Brock Boeser, a Calder Trophy finalist after scoring 29 goals in 62 games last season, had two goals and two assists Friday and owns four goals along with 11 points in 2018-19 while skating on a line with Pettersson. Defenseman Christopher Tanev (minus-4, 21:27 ice time per game) has missed the last five contests with a hip bone bruise but made the trip and could play Tuesday. Jacob Markstrom (6-3-0, 3.27 goals-against average, .899 save percentage) has allowed five or more goals in four games this season, winning for the first time in such contests Friday, and a total of nine in the other five contests.

    ABOUT THE RED WINGS (4-8-2): Dylan Larkin leads the team with six goals and 15 points after scoring twice and recording six assists during a four-game point streak. The Red Wings are thin up front as Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou missed their third straight games Saturday with undisclosed injuries while Thomas Vanek (lower body) has been out for two contests. Tyler Bertuzzi (five goals) has scored in three of his last four games while 11 of Gustav Nyquist's 12 points are assists.

    OVERTIME

    1. Pettersson set a Vancouver record for points in a regular-season game by a rookie Saturday and eclipsed the previous mark for youngest to score five points in franchise history set by 20-year-old Trevor Linden in the 1990-91 season.

    2. Detroit D Jonathan Ericsson, who missed the first seven games of the season with an upper-body injury, did not play Saturday (undisclosed).

    3. The Red Wings have won three of the last four meetings with the road team winning the past three encounters.

    Preview: Oilers at Lightning
    Gracenote
    Nov 6, 2018

    Two of last season’s three 100-point scorers will be on display when the improving Edmonton Oilers visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday for a high-octane battle. Edmonton captain Connor McDavid is well on his way to a third-straight 100-point campaign with 21 and Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov is averaging a point per game in the early going for the Eastern Conference-leading Lightning.

    Tampa Bay became the first team in the East to reach 10 wins on Sunday, when it tied the game with 33 seconds remaining and won it on Yanni Gourde’s goal 14 ticks into overtime for a 4-3 victory at Ottawa. “I really thought our guys chipped away, and it did not come easy,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper told reporters after his team recorded a 37-12 advantage in shots over the last two periods and the extra session. “They had to continue to work, obviously all the way to the very end, but the group has showed that this year with us, and I thought they deserved the two points.” Edmonton earned a point in six of seven games (5-1-1) before dropping a 4-2 decision at Washington on Monday as has split the first two contests of its four-game road trip that concludes at Florida on Thursday. McDavid scored his 10th goal in Monday’s loss, giving him six tallies and five assists during his eight-game point streak.

    TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, Sportsnet West (Edmonton)

    ABOUT THE OILERS (8-5-1): Ryan Nugent-Hopkins set up both goals on Monday and ranks second on the team with 16 points - trailing only McDavid (22), who is second in the league behind Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen (24). Leon Draisaitl scored his eighth goal in the setback for Edmonton, which has gotten unexpectedly big production from Alex Chiasson (six goals) and Drake Caggiula (five). Ty Rattie (abdomen) could return to the lineup on Tuesday, with underachieving forwards Jesse Puljujarvi (one goal) and Ryan Strome (zero points) being candidates to sit out if he does.

    ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (10-3-1): Rookie Mathieu Joseph, who has impressed with speed and grit to earn a consistent spot in the lineup, scored his first NHL goal Sunday in his 14th game. “You can see on the bench, everyone is excited for him," captain Steven Stamkos told reporters. “When you’re in a stretch like that, you just keep going and, eventually, one will go in. It’s even more special coming in the win.” Brayden Point recorded the tying goal and set up the winner Sunday to push his team-leading point total to 17 - eight of which have come in the last four contests.

    OVERTIME

    1. Edmonton RW Tobias Rieder, who has notched seven assists in his first season with the team, has not scored in 18 straight games - including playoffs.

    2. Tampa Bay G Andrei Vasilevskiy is tied for the league lead with seven wins and among the leaders with a 1.98 goals-against average.

    3. The home team has won each of the last five meetings while the Lightning are 5-1-1 in the last seven matchups.

    Preview: Hurricanes at Blues
    Gracenote
    Nov 5, 2018

    The Carolina Hurricanes opened the season with a flourish, erupting for 22 goals in their first five games (4-0-1) before mustering just 16 during their current 2-6-1 slide. The Hurricanes aim to end a four-game losing skid on Tuesday when they play the third contest of their four-game road trip against the St. Louis Blues.

    "You can feel sorry about yourself and hang your head, but nobody cares about that," Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters. "We're going to get back to work and keep trying to get better. That's the only thing you can do." Sebastian Aho was held off the scoresheet for the second consecutive contest in Saturday's 3-0 setback versus Vegas after starting the season with a 12-game point streak (four goals, 13 assists) for the Hurricanes, who mustered just three goals in a pair of losses to the Blues in 2017-18. St. Louis had been keeping scoreboard operators busy with 24 tallies in their previous five games (3-1-1) before dropping a 5-1 decision to Minnesota on Saturday. "We were trending, we were going in the right direction, but we laid an egg there (Saturday). Let's not kid ourselves. That was a bad one," Blues coach Mike Yeo told reporters. "Now where are we after that? That's what I'm anxious to see (in Tuesday's) game. Are we still trending in the right direction or are we starting at ground zero again?"

    TV: 8 p.m. ET, FS Carolinas, FS Midwest (St. Louis)

    ABOUT THE HURRICANES (6-6-2): Carolina's goaltender carousel is expected to turn to either Scott Darling or Curtis McElhinney after fellow netminder Petr Mrazek was unable to practice on Monday due to the lower-body injury he sustained during Friday's 4-3 overtime loss at Arizona. "I just talked to (Mrazek), and he said he's feeling better," Brind'Amour told the media. "I know Petr is not ready to play, but the other two guys are." Darling has yielded three goals in losses to both Boston (Oct. 30) and Vegas while McElhinney owns a 3-1-0 mark - although his last game action came on Oct. 20 in a 3-1 setback against Colorado.

    ABOUT THE BLUES (4-5-3): Ryan O'Reilly tallied against the Wild to give him four goals and eight assists during his seven-game point streak, which is one shy of matching his career best that he set on two different occasions. Vladimir Tarasenko set up O'Reilly on Saturday to give him four goals and one assist in the first four contests of the season-high seven-game homestand. The 26-year-old Russian has also recorded at least one point in four straight encounters with Carolina, registering one goal and four assists in the span.

    OVERTIME

    1. St. Louis has scored a power-play goal in five consecutive contests and 10 of 12 games this season.

    2. Carolina captain RW Justin Williams has just two points (two assists) in his last nine outings.

    3. Yeo told reporters that Blues C Brayden Schenn did not practice on Monday due to soreness in his upper body and is questionable to play versus the Hurricanes.

    Preview: Ducks at Kings
    Gracenote
    Nov 5, 2018

    Willie Desjardins has been summoned to light a fire under the Los Angeles Kings, who named the 61-year-old as the team's interim head coach after dismissing John Stevens on Sunday. The Kings look to put their best foot forward under their new bench boss on Tuesday when they continue their seven-game homestand against the Anaheim Ducks in the first Freeway Series matchup of the season.

    "I want to see us play fast," Desjardins told reporters following Monday's practice. "I want to see us play with passion. I want us to be excited when we get to the rink. I want us to start each period quick. ... We want to find ways to win." Los Angeles answered six consecutive losses with victories in two of its last three, but a sputtering offense has registered league lows in goals scored (28) and tallies per game (2.15). Anaheim's offense isn't doing much better, as the Ducks reside 29th in goals per game (2.4) despite defenseman Cam Fowler recording his first career hat trick on Sunday as the club snapped a seven-game winless skid (0-5-2) with a 3-2 overtime victory over Columbus. "The main thing is our team found a way to win the game and kind of find a way to get off this losing streak," said the 26-year-old Fowler, who has three goals and two assists on his three-game point streak.

    ABOUT THE DUCKS (6-6-3): Captain Ryan Getzlaf (team high-tying eight assists) returned to practice on Monday, one day removed from sitting out his sixth contest of the season - this time with an upper-body injury. The 33-year-old Getzlaf could draw back in the lineup and carry a four-game point streak (two goals, five assists) into Tuesday's encounter versus the Kings, against whom he has collected 55 points (19 goals, 36 assists) in 68 career meetings. Goaltender John Gibson has also fared well versus Los Angeles, sporting a 9-3-0 mark with a 1.79 goals-against average and .935 save percentage in 13 appearances.

    ABOUT THE KINGS (4-8-1): Ilya Kovalchuk and captain Anze Kopitar each carry a three-game point streak into Tuesday's tilt, with the former scoring two goals and setting up four others while the latter has one tally and two assists. While Kovalchuk has been playing in the Kontinental Hockey League for several seasons, Kopitar registered five points (two goals, three assists) in five meetings with Anaheim in 2017-18. Defenseman Drew Doughty, who leads the team with nine assists, set up a pair of goals for the second time in three outings during Saturday's 4-1 win over Columbus.

    OVERTIME

    1. Anaheim's Randy Carlyle (460) will move past the late Roger Neilson and into sole possession of 30th place in NHL history with his next victory.

    2. Los Angeles C Jeff Carter has scored and set up a goal in back-to-back contests after being held off the scoresheet in eight of his previous 11 contests.

    3. The Ducks have yielded the first goal in six consecutive games this season while the Kings had done so in eight straight before Saturday's outing.

    PREDICTION: Ducks 4, Kings 1

    Preview: Wild at Sharks
    Gracenote
    Nov 5, 2018

    The surging Minnesota Wild try for their seventh straight victory over San Jose when they visit the Sharks on Tuesday. Minnesota has won seven of its last eight games, including a 5-1 victory against the Blues on Saturday that made the Wild 2-1-0 on a franchise-record seven-game road trip which continues with three in California and concludes with a return trip to St. Louis on Sunday.

    “That was about as good of a team win as I think we’ve had all season,” Wild center Eric Staal told reporters after scoring his 400th career goal. “We will try to continue this on the road (this) week.” San Jose improved to 1-1-1 on its four-game homestand with a 4-3 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday on Timo Meier's overtime goal - his second of the game. "He's been great," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer told reporters about Meier, who has a club-most 11 goals this season and eight in his last seven games. "Thankfully he's off to the start he's off to. We need him. We needed somebody to step up." Minnesota has swept San Jose in the last two season series with Staal recording four tallies in each three-game set.

    TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, FS North (Minnesota), NBCS California (San Jose)

    ABOUT THE WILD (8-3-2): After beginning the season with three blank scoresheets, Mikael Granlund has unleashed a 10-game point streak with six goals and seven assists. Nick Seeler scored his first career goal and added two assists Saturday in his 35th NHL game, telling reporters: "It's nice to have that first one go in." Devan Dubnyk (6-2-2, 2.07 goals-against average, .937 save percentage) has yielded two or fewer goals in seven games and is 10-8-2, 2.89, .909 in his career versus the Sharks.

    ABOUT THE SHARKS (7-4-3): Joe Thornton scored his first goal of the season Saturday in his third game since missing nine with an infection in his right knee, telling reporters: "I feel better. There are periods I feel great and times not so good. It's starting to come. It's a work in progress." Tomas Hertl (five goals, 14 points) left Saturday's game with a head injury and is questionable to play Tuesday. Brent Burns (397 career assists) leads the team with 13 assists and, like Meier and Logan Couture (five goals, seven assists during a nine-game point streak), has a club-high 16 points.

    OVERTIME

    1. Thornton has 398 goals and 1,429 points - 16th all-time - in 1,498 games.

    2. Minnesota LW Zach Parise (12 points this season) has scored three of his four goals on the road.

    3. San Jose has the third-best penalty-killing unit in the NHL at 87.8 percent after going 21-for-21 in its last eight games while the Wild (18-for-20 in the last five contests) are fifth at 85.2 entering Monday.
