Sabres head coach Phil Housley benched Kyle Okposo during Friday night's game against the Canucks.

Okposo got just 11 seconds of ice time during the final 12:23 of the second period and he got just a single shift in the third frame. "I've just got to play better. Plain and simple," said Okposo. "I haven't really liked my game up to this point. I seem to be thinking a lot. I've just got to settle down and make some plays. I've played in this league a long time. I know I can do it. I can make some plays, and I've got to go out there and prove it." He has no goals, one assist and a minus-7 rating in six games this season.

Erik Haula (lower body) may get back on the ice Saturday.

"He's doing much better," coach Gerard Gallant said. Haula hasn't played since Oct. 13 because of a lower-body injury.

Lightning head coach Jon Copper has been impressed by his team's 6-1-0 start to the season.

"The start, for me, means a little more just in who we've played," Cooper said. "I know it's early, but we took a couple of monkeys off our back. Because we didn't beat Pittsburgh last year, we didn't beat Columbus last year, and we barely ever beat St. Louis. Coming off a season where we missed the playoffs by one point — you never know where we lost that point — it's good to point munch to start the season."

Henrik Sedin hasn't logged 13 minutes of action in each of the last three games.

Sedin earned his third assist in seven matches in a 4-2 win over Buffalo on Friday night. He played 12:17 versus the Sabres. "I think we've had a couple of games where their minutes have been 12½. There's been a couple others where it's been 17, said Travis Green referring to the ice time of the Sedin twins. "I see them going back and forth between those numbers."
Oct 21 - 11:18 AM

Brandon Sutter contributed two assists in Friday's 4-2 win against Buffalo.

Sutter helped set up goals by Markus Granlund and Derek Dorsett (shorthanded) in the contest. He has three points in seven appearances this season.

Markus Granlund was back with Brandon Sutter on Friday night against Buffalo.

Granlund didn't last long with the Sedin twins, as coach Travis Green isn't afraid to mix up his combinations on the fly. He has averaged 17:41 of playing time per game, which ranks second among Vancouver's forwards. Granlund finally got on the scoresheet Friday with a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Sabres.

Darren Helm found the back of the net in Friday's 4-3 OT loss to the Capitals.

Helm opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal early in the second period, as he intercepted an Alex Ovechkin pass before beating Braden Holtby. Helm finished the game with five shots on goal and two hits in 15:31 of ice time. Helm has one goal and three points in eight games this season.

Daniel Sedin found the back of the net Friday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Sedin logged just 11:11 of ice time in the contest. He has only played over 17 minutes once in seven games this season. The Sedins are being deployed differently this year and so far it has worked out well for the Canucks.
Oct 21 - 11:04 AM

Friday night's contest against the Capitals was the 800th NHL game of Niklas Kronwall's career.

Kronwall has dealt with his share of injuries throughout his career, so this is a major accomplishment for him. The 36-year-old has accumulated 76 goals and 379 points during his NHL career. The fact that he's only played with one team makes the accomplishment even more special.
Oct 21 - 11:00 AM

Joonas Donskoi tallied his first goal of the year in Friday's 3-0 victory versus New Jersey.

Donskoi scored on his own rebound to give the Sharks a 3-0 lead late in the second period. He has collected three points in six matches this season.
