T.J. Galiardi scored a goal and an assist in the Blues' 5-0 pre-season win over Columbus on Sunday night.

The 28-year-old has 105 career points in 321 games, and will try to prove to the Blues he deserves to be back in the NHL after a year abroad.

Jordan Binnington made 12 saves and split a shutout with teammate Pheonix Copley in the second half of a split squad double header for the Blues and Blue Jackets Sunday night.

The Blues won the first game 7-3, then shut out Columbus in the second game 5-0. Copley pitched in 11 saves in the shutout effort. Binnington spent last season with the Chicago Wolves, owning a 18-18-5 record and .907 save percentage.

Though it was only a scrimmage, Bobby Ryan knows why he jumped in to fight Patrick Sieloff.

"I watched a guy I've known for five minutes hit a teammate of three years. Couldn't live with myself if I didn't go at him." Those are Ryan's words for why he fought Sieloff following the concussive hit he gave Clarke MacArthur. The junction where sports and violence meet is always fraught with subjective ambiguities, and this is yet another example. Like it or not, the Senators are potentially down MacArthur's veteran services once more, and could be headed for a shaky start to their season should this incident linger on without an internal resolution.

The Ottawa Senators will be without Curtis Lazar indefinitely as he recovers from mono.

Mononucleosis is a notoriously difficult illness to overcome in a short period of time, which is not something Lazar nor the Sens want to hear. "We were hoping with the few days that we had it would be good enough," coach Guy Boucher said. "But it’s become a daily thing that we’re going to follow up and it’s going to be carefully monitored." The 21-year-old has posted just 12 goals and 35 points through his first two campaigns.

Brad Marchand isn't focused on who he will be playing for after the 2016-17.

Marchand has made instant chemistry with Sidney Crosby on Canada's top line, which naturally leads to questions about whether the 2017 unrestricted free agent would like to sign in Pittsburgh. But we'll deal with whatever needs to be dealt with down the road," Marchand said. The 28-year-old winger boasts a $4.5M cap hit currently, and he'll likely want a raise no matter who he signs with.

Anze Kopitar notched two big assists on Sunday to help send Team Europe to the World Cup of Hockey finals versus Team Canada.

Kopitar had just one point in the preliminary round, but was still doing lots of positive things without the puck to help Team Europe earn a spot in the semifinals. In the semis, Kopitar took on an offensive role, setting up Marian Gaborik in the second period, then Tomas Tatar for the overtime winner.

Kenny Agostino notched two goals and five points in the St. Louis Blues' pre-season split squad opener on Sunday afternoon, making a positive impact on his new team.

The Flames passed on re-signing the 24-year-old, so the Blues signed Agostino to a two-way contract this summer. Even with performances like these, he has lots of work ahead to crack the NHL roster.

Scott Hartnell started the pre-season off on the right foot with two goals and an assist in Columbus' 7-3 loss against St. Louis on Sunday.

Hartnell and Sam Gagner combined to generate all of the Jackets' offense, with the duo earning three points each. The 34-year-old managed 49 points last season and will look to prove he can still break 50 points as he ages.

The Buffalo Sabres will be seeing a newer, slimmer, Robin Lehner during training camp this month.

Lehner reported dropped over 20 lbs. after going through mixed martial arts training. "It's a big year for me personally, but I think it's another big year for our team," he said. The Sabres will be looking to the young veteran to backstop them to a surprise playoff berth this season.

Dennis Seidenberg is apparently on Ottawa Senator's GM Pierre Dorion's radar.

Entering his age-35 season and coming off a $4M cap hit, it's unclear how much Seidenberg can provide the Senators. To wit, Ottawa will not want to pay full freight. He has not topped the 20-point plateau since 2011-12, and saw a massive dip in his playing time last season from 22 to 19 minutes on average.

Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion has indicated that signing free agent defender Kris Russell is under consideration.

The 29-year-old defender is looking to cash in on his free agent, and somewhat lauded, shot-blocking status. Russell has blocked at least 201 shots each of the last four seasons while averaging over 23 minutes a night and 25 points a season. The Sens meanwhile have just over $6M in cap space, which could increase by another $4.65M depending on what happens with Clarke MacArthur.

Great news for Mark Stone (concussion) and Ottawa Senators fans.

GM Pierre Dorion says that he "expects" the scoring winger to be "ready" for opening night, Oct. 12th against the Toronto Maple Leafs. That's two and a half weeks away, which ought to inspire confidence. Draft accordingly.

Marian Gaborik scored his second goal of the world Cup during Team Europe's 3-2 semi-final victory over Team Sweden.

Gaborik created the goal all on his own, scoring from a sharp angle near the goal line to surprise Henrik Lundqvist. He collected four shots in nearly 18 minutes of work in the game. He has two goals and points in the tournament.
Sep 25 - 4:23 PM

Jaroslav Halak turned away 37 of 39 shots in Sunday's 3-2 semi-final win for Team Europe over Henrik Lundqvist and Team Sweden.

Halak was simply sensational, bailing Europe's defense on a two-on-one break for Sweden just before Tomas Tatar send them to the World Cup final to face Canada. It'll be a best-of-three series with the presumed-eventual winners.
Sep 25 - 4:17 PM

Erik Karlsson scored his first goal of the World Cup during Team Sweden's 3-2 overtime loss to Team Europe in Sunday's semi-final.

Karlsson knotted the game at two late in the third period with a shrewd shot through traffic. He went on to skate a team-high 22:52 with three shots on net plus both a hit and a block. He has a goal and four points in four games.
