Antti Niemi allowed five goals on 28 shots in San Jose's 5-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Sharks gave Niemi plenty of run-support tonight, but it just wasn't meant to be. With the game tied late in the third period, Mark Letestu beat Niemi in the final minute of play to give Columbus the win in regulation. Niemi falls to 3-2-0 on the season. He now has an unimpressive 3.16 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage this season.

Mark Letestu scored two goals, including the game-winner, as Columbus defeated San Jose 5-4 on Thursday night.

Letestu scored the winning goal with just 21 seconds remaining in the contest to give the Jackets the win. This was a crazy game that saw four lead-changes. Ryan Johansen also scored two goals in the contest, while winger Scott Hartnell registered four assists. The goals were Letestu’s first two of the season.

Jonathan Quick turned aside all 29 shots he faced in Los Angeles' 2-0 win over Buffalo on Thursday.

Quick is on fire right now. He’s given up one goal or less in four consecutive starts (including two shutouts). The Kings grabbed the lead less than one minute into the game, but Quick allowed the Kings to keep the lead on several occasions. There aren’t even a handful of goaltenders better than Jonathan Quick right now. He just may be the best goaltender in the NHL, and with the Kings playing well in front of him, he will continue to be a fantasy monster going forward.

Jeff Carter scored a goal and added an assist in Los Angeles’ 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

On paper it looked like this game might be a blowout, but the Sabres kept it close. Carter opened the scoring on the power play just 36 seconds into the game. Carter now has four goals and four assists in seven games this season. The 29-year-old picked up his assist on Anze Kopitar’s goal in the third period. Carter has been off the charts so far this season, and there’s no reason to think he can’t continue to produce solid offensive numbers.

Darcy Kuemper stopped all 26 shots he faced on Thursday night en route to his third shutout of the young season in a 2-0 win over Arizona.

Kuemper is having a special start to the year and is posting absolutely breathtaking numbers. Initially thought to be a three-man race heading into the season, Kuemper has taken the starting goaltending job in Minnesota and is running away with it. Through four starts, he is 3-1 with a .980 save percentage and 0.50 goals against average.

James Neal lit the lamp three times for a natural hat trick on Thursday night as the Predators edged out the Blackhawks 3-2.

Neal scored a goal in each period and now has five goals in his past four games, the only points he has through seven games this season. Acquired during the off-season in a trade from Pittsburgh, Neal is living up to the offensive hopes he brought to Nashville. Rookie Filip Forsberg notched assists on two of Neal's goals against Hawks goaltender Antti Raanta.

Jake Allen was beaten three times in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver, the fourth was an empty netter.

Chris Higgins cleaned up the garbage for the first goal after Alex Pietrangelo was picked off at the red line in the first, and Linden Vey was poorly covered in the slot during a Canucks' powerplay to make it 3-1 in the third. But Nick Bonino's breakaway goal went in short side after he looked Allen off. It wasn't the young netminder's finest game, but he could've been helped more by his veteran defense, too. He stopped just 19-22.

Sean Monahan scored two goals in Calgary’s 5-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night.

The goals are Monahan’s first two of the season. The 20-year-old has struggled to produce offensively so far this season. Monahan had only two assists in his first eight games of the year. It’s way too early to tell if Monahan is going through a sophomore slump, or if it’s just a slow start to the season. Curtis Glencross, Matt Stajan and Lance Bouma also scored goals for the Flames.

Ryan Miller was tested well on Thursday night in St. Louis, stopping 31-32 shots against in the 4-1 victory over his former teammates.

After getting yanked in the first period on Tuesday night, Miller was out to prove the doubters wrong on every side of the proverbial fence - and he did. At least for this night. Only Kevin Shattenkirk's twisted wrister on the powerplay to tie the game at one in the second period beat Miller.

Niklas Kronwall pitched in two goals and an assist in the Wings' thrilling 4-3 overtime win over Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

In a rematch of the 2008 and 2009 Stanley Cup finals, the Red Wings twice overcame two goal deficits, Kronwall tied the game with 39 seconds to go in the third and Justin Abdelkader ended it in the final minute of overtime. The 33 year-old Kronwall now has two goals and six points in seven games this season.

Zdeno Chara left Thursday's tilt with the Islanders in the first period with an unapparent injury and did not return.

Chara laid out a big hit to John Tavares on his last shift before leaving, but did not show any signs of injury after the play. He finished his shift, tried to play again and eventually left for the dressing room for the rest of the night. Once it becomes clear what was bothering Chara and whether he'll miss any more time, you'll find out here.
