Johnny Gaudreau netted the eventual winner and helped on another in Calgary's 4-3 victory over Nashville on Friday night.

Johnny Hockey had his second two point effort of his brief career. His secondary assist on Jiri Hudler's early third period goal to tie the game at two was impressive due to his poise to stand in front of the giant Nashville defensemen, it was his goal that was wow-worthy. After receiving the head-man pass from Deryk Engelland at the red line, he fought through both a back-checker and a defensemen to gain the zone, cut wide left, and ripped a laser past the indominable Pekka Rinne far side. If nothing else, Johnny Hockey's got enough guts and skill to spare for the rest of us.

Sean Monahan opened the scoring and assisted on another in Calgary's 4-3 victory over Nashville on Friday.

Monahan slammed home a rebound off Dennis Wideman's blast from the point to make it 1-0 Flames early in the second, and was instrumental in making it 3-2 Flames just 18 game minutes later. It was another all-around great effort by the 20 year old phenom who now has six points through the first dozen games of the season.

James Neal carried the Nashville offense in Calgary on Friday night, however it wasn't enough to avoid defeat.

Neal finished with a game-high seven shots on goal, and was the only forward to crack 20 minutes of ice time. He was also on for all 87 seconds of Nashville's only power play, which he scored on. Neal now has seven goals through his first 10 goals as a Predator, and fortunately for him, his 6'2" 210lbs frame has big, wide shoulders.
Nov 1 - 12:23 AM

Jonas Hiller stopped 28-31 shots the Predators sent his way on Friday night en route to a 4-3 victory.

Hiller was simply on his game as Nashville sent a steady stream of pucks his way all 60 minutes. While Craig Smith's second period tying goal perhaps ought to have been stopped, James Neal's two snipes were goal scorer's goals. Fortunately Hiller's offense was more than Pekka Rinne could handle.
Nov 1 - 12:17 AM

Pekka Rinne wasn't his usual stellar self, stopping just 26-30 shots en route to a 4-3 loss in Calgary on Friday night.

Fortunately, the Predators still sit atop the Central division with 14 points and just two regualation losses through the first month of the season. Nashville will get their chance to start a new winning streak in Vancouver on Sunday.

Kari Lehtonen allowed two goals on 24 shots in Dallas' 2-1 overtime loss to Anaheim.

Lehtonen played well enough to win, but didn't get much goal support from his team tonight. The 30-year-old goaltender is now 4-0-4 with a 2.78 goals-against-average and a .908 save-percentage. He is a solid option in standard fantasy leagues because Dallas has no other options in goal.
Oct 31 - 11:47 PM

Frederik Anderson stopped 22 of 23 shots he faced in Anaheim's 2-1 overtime win over Dallas on Friday.

Andersen has been fantastic in goal for Anaheim this season. The 25-year-old is now 7-1-0 this season. He hasn't reached elite status yet, but he is a quality option in standard fantasy leagues. Andersen has allowed two goals or less in six of his eight starts this season.
Oct 31 - 11:38 PM

Corey Perry scored a goal and added an assist in Anaheim's 2-1 overtime win over Dallas on Friday night.

The goal was Perry's league-leading 10th of the season. The 29-year-old is on pace to have another tremendous season. He now has 14 points in 10 games so far this season, and he is clearly one of the two or three best snipers in the NHL.
Oct 31 - 11:35 PM

Antoine Roussel scored a goal in Dallas' 2-1 overtime loss to Anaheim on Friday.

Roussel is an intriguing player. He has the potential to score close to 20 goals per season, and is able to put up a lot of penalty minutes as well. The 24-year-old now has four goals and six points in 10 games this season. He is also on pace to surpass the 200-penalty minute mark.
Oct 31 - 11:32 PM

Nate Thompson scored the game-winning goal in Anaheim's 2-1 overtime win over Dallas on Friday.

The goal was Thompson's first as a member of the Ducks. The 30-year-old was acquired by Anaheim in a trade with Tampa Bay during the off-season. Thompson is a solid defensive forward, but he doesn't bring much to the table in terms of scoring. Corey Perry scored the other goal for Anaheim. Perry also got an assist on Thompson's goal.
Oct 31 - 11:29 PM

Jimmy Howard stopped 28 of Los Angeles’ 30 shots in Detroit’s 5-2 win on Friday.

Howard has now surrendered two goals or less in six of his eight starts this season. The 30-year-old has been stellar for Detroit and gives them a chance to win every night. After a very average 2013-14 season, it’s nice to see Howard bounce back in a big way. He is now 5-1-2 with a 1.97 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage this season.
Oct 31 - 10:40 PM

Jonathan Quick allowed four goals on 34 shots in Los Angeles’ 5-2 loss to Detroit on Friday.

Detroit’s fifth goal was an empty-netter. Friday’s game was the first time that Quick has allowed more than three goals in a start since the season opener against the Sharks. It’s just a small blip on the radar for the 28-year-old, who is now 5-2-2 this season. He has a 2.03 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage. The Kings’ record falls to 6-3-2 overall and 0-2-2 on the road.
Oct 31 - 10:33 PM

Pavel Datsyuk scored two goals and an assist in Detroit’s 5-2 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

The 36-year-old scored Detroit’s second goal to make it 2-0, and added the empty netter late in the third. Datsyuk has registered at least one point in each of the five games he’s played since returning from a shoulder injury. He now has four goals and eight points in those five games.
Oct 31 - 10:24 PM

Tyler Toffoli scored a goal in Los Angeles’ 5-2 loss to Detroit on Friday.

It was his third shorthanded goal of the season. Toffoli continues to produce offense at an incredible pace. The 22-year-old now has six goals and 14 points in 11 games this season. Equally as incredible is his plus-13 rating in those 11 games. The 22-year-old played really well in last year’s playoffs and this year’s preseason, but no one could have anticipated an offensive explosion quite like this. He’s currently on pace to surpass the 40-goal and 100 point marks this season. It’s unlikely that he reaches those numbers, but not impossible.
