According to a Detroit News report, the Detroit Red Wings might owe roughly $70 million to the city of Detroit.

The Detroit Red Wings are supposed to give the city a 25% share of TV rights as part of their Joe Louis Arena and Cobo Arena lease agreement. That's been around since 1980, but the team reportedly has never paid the city any of that money. With Detroit Red Wings and Tigers owner Mike Ilitch seeking money for a new arena, the unpaid debt is coming up. "The Ilitches are a multibillion-dollar operation, and they are inside a city that is sinking," said City Councilman Kwame Kenyatta. "(Mike Ilitch), I am sure, knows about this and should be forthcoming to help the city. Help us by writing a check, not by negotiating a new lease." Detroit Mayor Dave Bing said that his primary focus is on developing a new lease agreement, but he added, "we will take appropriate steps to collect any money that is owed to the City. We look forward to resolving all issues past and present in our negotiations with Olympia Entertainment."

Jonathan Drouin picked up his first NHL point on an assist in Tampa Bay’s 2-1 OT win over Calgary on Tuesday.

Playing in his second NHL game the rookie was at times dazzling with his puck control while playing on a line with Steven Stamkos. Drouin really should have had the OT winner but was stymied by Karri Ramo on a two-on-nothing chance with Steven Stamkos. As long as the kid is playing with Stamkos he is a great fantasy option this season.

Pekka Rinne was steady again Tuesday night as he steered aside 33 of 36 shots en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Coyotes.

After an injury-plagued 2013-14 campaign it was fair to question Rinne's form entering this season, but he has answered all critics in the early going with a 4-0-1 record in his first five starts. He has been spectacular so far, having allowed just eight goals all year and posting a 1.55 GAA to go along with a .940 save percentage. It's safe to say he has regained his position in the top tier of fantasy goaltenders.

Phil Kessel put on quite the show Tuesday as he potted a pair of goals and added a helper in Toronto's 5-2 win on Long Island.

Though he entered the night with a respectable five points in six games, Kessel's season had been a mix of peaks and valleys until he exploded with this showing. James van Riemsdyk also scored for the Leafs in the win, as did Roman Polak and David Clarkson.

Karri Ramo will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

The Calgary Flames have been dividing the goaltending workload evenly between Ramo and Jonas Hiller. Ramo has a 2.30 GAA and .920 save percentage in three starts.

The Los Angeles Kings are standing behind the NHL's decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely.

The NHL acted after Voynov was arrested following an alleged incident of domestic violence that sent an adult woman to the hospital. While the Kings believe the NHL is acting correctly, they do have questions about what this means for their franchise. More specifically, they aren't sure how this will be handled from a salary cap and roster space perspective. The Kings have looked through the CBA and don't feel it addressed their questions, but they will speak to the league Wednesday.

Reto Berra (neck) will indeed start in Tuesday's game.

Berra was already projected to start in that contest, barring a setback. He has a 0.72 GAA and .974 save percentage in three games this season.
Oct 21 - 1:41 PM

Devan Dubnyk will start in Tuesday's game against Nashville.

The Coyotes have a bit of a goalie controversy given Mike Smith's slow start to the season. Smith has a 5.33 GAA and .822 save percentage in three games. While his struggles might lead to Dubnyk getting more ice time in the short-term, Smith should get more opportunities to turn his season around before he's in any serious jeopardy of losing the starting gig. It's worth adding that Dubnyk did play for the Predators in 2013-14, but he only appeared in two games, so this isn't the biggest of reunions.
Oct 21 - 1:36 PM

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Khudobin was been splitting the Hurricanes' starts with Cam Ward so far. Khudobin is off to a far better start though with a 2.44 GAA and .923 save percentage.
Oct 21 - 1:16 PM

Pavel Datsyuk (shoulder) should be back into the Red Wings' lineup on Tuesday.

Datsyuk missed the start of the season after sustaining the injury during Detroit's first preseason game. He's battle more than his fair share of ailments in recent years, but he's one of the league's top players when he's healthy.
Oct 21 - 12:48 PM

Corey Crawford has sustained an upper-body injury.

Crawford will not start against the Philadelphia Flyers as a result. Beyond that, he's considered day-to-day. Crawford has a 1.66 GAA and .926 save percentage in four games this season.
Oct 21 - 12:31 PM

Ryan Callahan exited Monday's game against Edmonton because of a lower-body injury.

He appeared to be favoring his leg when he left late in the second period and he didn't return. Callahan is unlikely to play Tuesday night in Calgary, according to coach Jon Cooper.
