Ondrej Pavelec had another bad game Friday night, getting lit up by Tampa Bay for four goals on just 18 shots.

In just two periods as well. It can be argued that Pavelec was let down by his defense, allowing Tampa to whip around the puck as they desired. But upon further review it looks like Tampa's plan was to force Pavelec to move laterally, which he failed to do quickly enough on all four goals. He was replaced by Michael Hutchinson to begin the third. Winnipeg outshot Tampa 42-27 in the 4-2 loss.

Ben Bishop was outstanding in Winnipeg on Friday night, stopping 40-42 shots sent his way.

Winnipeg also had five powerplays, including a 5-on-3 late in the first. However they're powerplay goal came in the second. No matter the order, Bishop was sharp and could have been forgiven if he let in five or six instead. Tampa won 4-2 mainly due to his efforts.

Damien Brunner scored a wildly lucky goal to tie the Devils up at two against Dallas, Friday night.

Patrik Elias started by grindind his way through three Stars at the offensive blue line midway through the third with the Devils down 2-1. After falling while being forced wide by Jordie Benn, Elias punched the puck into Kari Lehtonen's skates, who accidentally kicked it to his right where Brunner came rushing in for the slam dunk. Go find a replay. The goal was Brunner's first of the season, and credit him for being there. He finished with a game-high six shots on goal over 19:14 of ice time.

Cory Schneider stood tall Friday night against Dallas, turning away 35-37 shots through overtime before losing 3-2 in the shootout.

I'd say, "again", but this is just the first shootout loss of the season. Schneider was a big reason why the Devils even got one point against Dallas, turning away several solid scoring chances throughout the game. However, Patrick Eaves' goal to make it 2-1 Dallas was very soft. Schneider needs to seal the short side on that one, just as he had to be better in the shootouts. Jamie Benn's winner was equally soft, albeit to the far side. Continue to deploy Schneider with confidence.

Joe Pavelski is expected serve as the San Jose Sharks' third-line center on Saturday.

Pavelski's projected linemates are Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney. Pavelski has gotten off to a great start with four goals and eight points in eight games, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan thinks moving Pavelski down to the third line will help them defensively. "We're kind of going in waves where we have a line or two that's responsible and then one that falls off, and it varies," McLellan said. "It’s not just the top lines or the third or fourth lines. It varies. We're trying to find some balance defensively. I think offensively we've been fine." Pavelski has been playing primarily with Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl this season.

Alex Stalock will start for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Stalock has a 2.33 GAA and .933 save percentage in three games this season. He'll play against the Buffalo Sabres, which are typically a favorable team for opposing goaltenders.

John Gibson is expected to start in Friday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Gibson played in the Ducks' season opener against Pittsburgh, but he allowed six goals on 39 shots in that game. Frederik Andersen started in Anaheim's second game and has gone on an impressive 6-0-0 run. In the middle of that, Gibson asked the Ducks if he could be temporarily reassigned to the minors so that he could get in a couple starts. Thanks to Gibson's decision to play in the AHL, he shouldn't be rusty going into this contest.

Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) might return on Saturday.

Grabovski had a positive skate on Friday, but his availability won't be determined until after he participates in Saturday's practice. He hasn't played since Oct. 16. Before being sidelined, he had two goals and three points in four games.
Oct 24 - 2:34 PM

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to start on Saturday.

Gustavsson earned a 30-save shutout in his first and so far only start of the season. He's a solid backup, but isn't a threat to take the starting gig from Jimmy Howard.

Billionaire William Foley is reportedly interested in putting an NHL team in Las Vegas.

Based on the report, Foley's goal is to have the team established for the NHL's 100th anniversary in 2017-18. It's believed that Foley might achieve that by purchasing the Arizona Coyotes. Andrew Barroway recently reached a deal to gain a controlling stake in the team, but is reportedly willing to flip the team. The NHL won't comment on whether they've had discussions with Foley, but they did deny any reports suggesting that Foley has plans to buy the Coyotes and move them to Las Vegas. Another possibility is that the NHL will expand and Vegas will get a team that way.

Andrew MacDonald is expected to be out for four weeks due to a lower-body injury.

With Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn also sidelined, the Flyers' defense looks pretty thin at this point. MacDonald has a goal and three points in seven games this season.
