Jannik Hansen scored his first goal of the season Tuesday night.

It was also Hansen's first point in five contests. He only had 20 points in 71 contests in 2013-14, but he might reach the 30-point milestone this season.

Jay Bouwmeester was back with Alex Pietrangelo on Tuesday at practice.

The duo didn't start the season together, but they were reunited during Sunday's 3-0 loss to Anaheim. "Looking at the opponents coming up, we're going to need one pair that carries the yeoman's work five on five, and they're the pair that does it, so we're going to use them," said said coach Ken Hitchcock referring to match-ups against Vancouver and Chicago.

Joe Thornton scored a goal in the Sharks' 5-3 loss on Tuesday.

Thornton has recorded at least a point in five of his last six games. He has two goals and seven points in seven contests in 2014-15.

Andrew Ebbett has been called up by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ebbett's time in the minors was brief, but it did give him an opportunity to play in an AHL game on Tuesday. He hasn't made his season debut with Pittsburgh yet.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have summoned Scott Harrington.

Harrington was sent to the minors on Monday. He hasn't played for Pittsburgh yet this season, but he has gotten into an AHL game.

Despite all expectations to the contrary, Braydon Coburn (lower body) didn't play on Tuesday.

Coburn even took part in the Flyers' pregame warmups, but he was ultimately held out of the contest. "He didn't feel right," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "So he couldn't play." He might return on Wednesday instead.

Steve Mason didn't receive much of the blame for Philadelphia's 4-0 loss to Chicago on Tuesday.

"He got bombarded in the first period and held us in there," Flyers coach Craig Berube said of Mason. Philadelphia was outshot 19-9 in the first period and Mason ended up facing 43 shots over the course of the game. At the same time, it's fair to say that this isn't the start to the season that Mason wanted. He has an ugly 3.83 GAA and .878 save percentage in five games.

Mike Ribeiro generated a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Arizona.

He stretched his point streak to four games with the two-point effort. Ribeiro has accounted for three goals and two assists during his scoring spree. It's early into the year, but so far he has fit in well with the Predators.

Kyle Okposo had an assist in The Islanders' 5-2 loss to Toronto Tuesday night.

Okposo is off to a great start with two goals and eight points in six games. He set a career-high last season with 69 points and it wouldn't be shocking if he ends up doing a bit better in 2014-15.
Oct 22 - 10:37 AM

Charlie Coyle skated with Mikko Koivu and Thomas Vanek during Tuesday's practice.

Koivu doesn't have a point in four games and Vanek has only one assist, so coach Mike Yeo is hoping that Coyle can help get his new linemates going. Koivu and Coyle enjoyed some success together last season.
Oct 22 - 10:36 AM

Chris Mueller scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday.

It was also Mueller's first goal in a Rangers uniform. The 28-year-old forward has 10 points in 48 career NHL games.
Oct 22 - 10:33 AM

Trevor Daley has been held off the scoresheet once in six games this season.

He extended his point streak to three games on Tuesday night when he earned an assist on Ryan Garbutt's opening goal in a 6-3 win for the Stars. Daley has accounted for six points in six contests.
Oct 22 - 10:32 AM

Rick Nash has a commanding lead in the NHL's goal scoring race.

Nash scored his eighth goal of the season on Tuesday, putting him three markers ahead of the nine players that are tied for second place. Nash has played in just seven games this season. Obviously, we expect him to cool down at some point, but it seems fair to believe that this won't be a repeat of his disappointing 39-point 2013-14 campaign.
Oct 22 - 10:30 AM

Ryan Garbutt scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Vancouver.

He also added an assist in the match to give him four points in six contests. Garbutt was a good contributor for the Stars last season, with 17 goals and 32 points in 75 games. He had 106 penalty minutes as well, but he's only posted four so far this season.
Oct 22 - 10:27 AM

Adam Henrique had a goal and an assist in the Devils' 4-3 overtime loss against the Rangers Tuesday night.

Henrique was playing in his 200th career game. He's gotten off to a strong start this season with three goals and seven points in six contests.
