Dennis Seidenberg will be counted on to take the lion's share of Zdeno Chara's ice time.

The Bruins lost Chara to a knee injury Thursday night and according to reports the towering captain may be sidelined for four-to-six weeks and then some if surgery is required. Seidenberg logged a team-high 24:12 of ice time after Chara went down and Dougie Hamilton was next with 23:55.

Patrice Bergeron and his linemates have been struggling offensively and defensively at the start of the 2014-15 season.

Bergeron has posted a minus-4 rating in his past two outings and he hasn't scored a goal in his last seven contests. "It's definitely something I take a lot of pride in and something that can't happen," he said. "I'm here to, on both sides of the ice, help the team, and you can't be on the ice for that many goals." He has one marker, four points and a minus-3 rating in nine matches.

Chris Kelly tallied his second goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders.

He extended his current point streak to five games with the marker. Kelly has accumulated six points, including five assists, during that time. He has meshed well on the third line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson.

Zdeno Chara reportedly suffered ligament damage in his knee and will be sidelined for the next four-to-six weeks.

Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston and TSN's Aaron Ward tweeted the story that Chara could be facing surgery after he nailed Islanders center John Tavares with an open-ice hit and left Thursday's game shortly afterward. Chara could end up missing more time if he does require a surgical procedure to repair the damage. The Bruins should provide a timetable after the big defender is re-evaluated.

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 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.

Joe Pavelski scored two goals in San Jose’s 5-4 loss to Columbus on Thursday.

The Sharks jumped out to a two nothing lead in the first period thanks to goals from Adam Burish and Pavelski but Columbus was able to come back and grab the lead in the second period. Pavelski tied things up in the third and Logan Couture gave the Sharks the lead with under 12 minutes remaining in the game. San Jose imploded as the game wound down. They allowed two goals, including the game winner, in the final 8:20. Despite the loss, Joe Pavelski is off to a great start. The 30-year-old has four goals and eight points in eight games this season.
Oct 24 - 1:58 AM

Sergei Bobrovksy allowed four goals on 37 shots in Columbus’ 5-4 win over the San Jose Sharks.

This game was absolutely wild. Bobrovsky allowed two goals in the first period, none in the second, and another two in the third. With the game tied at four in the final minute of regulation, Mark Letestu beat Antti Niemi to give Columbus the win. With the win, Bobrovsky improves his record to 4-2-0 and he now has a 2.37 goals against average and a .923 save percentage.

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.

The Buffalo Sabres were shutout by the Los Angeles Kings 2-0 on Thursday night.

Chris Stewart had seven shots on goal for the Sabres, but not one of them was able to beat Kings’ goaltender Jonathan Quick. The long season continues for Buffalo and for Stewart. The 26-year-old has played significant minutes for the Sabres, but he has registered just one assist in eight games now. Buffalo isn’t a very good hockey team, as they are in full-rebuild mode. As the season moves along, there is a chance that Stewart could end up being traded to a team that will help him reach his offensive potential.
Oct 24 - 1:37 AM

Jhonas Enroth stopped 37 of 39 shots in Buffalo’s 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

Jeff Carter beat Enroth less than a minute into the game with a power play goal, but the Swedish goaltender was solid after that. Both Kings’ goals were scored on the power play so it’s tough to blame Enroth for those. On paper, this game looked like it could be a blowout, but the Sabres hung around with the Kings more than many expected. The 26-year-old falls to 1-5-0 on the season. He should continue to get starts in goal for Buffalo, but he won’t be a very good source for wins during Buffalo’s rebuilding process.
Oct 24 - 1:31 AM

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.
Oct 24 - 1:20 AM

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.
