Red Wings Hold Off Bruins
(Boston, MA) -- Three different Red Wings scored goals to back 28 saves from Jonas Gustavsson in a 3-2 win over the Bruins in Boston. Henrik Zetterberg scored in the first, and Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary added goals in the second for Detroit. Loui Eriksson lit the lamp in the first and Milan Lucic got Boston close with a goal late in the third. The Wings are now 4-2-0. Tuukka Rask made 24 saves for Boston, which fell to 3-2-and-0.
Wild Sharpen Sabres
(Buffalo, NY) -- Jason Pominville lit the lamp on the power play late in the second and the Wild held on for a 2-1 win over the Sabres. Kyle Brodziak also scored for Minnesota while Josh Harding stopped 22 shots in the cage. The Wild were without starting goaltender Niklas Backstrom, who is nursing a sprained knee. Minnesota has won three straight to move to 3-1-2. Brian Flynn tallied the lone goal for Buffalo while Jhonas Enroth halted 18 shots in defeat. The Sabres remain winless at 0-6-1.
Caps Dump Oilers
(Washington) -- For the fourth time in six games this season, the Washington Capitals surrendered the game’s first goal in the first period. Getting and maintaining a lead proved problematic for the Caps in the first five games of the season, but after a bit of a sluggish start, the Capitals were able to rewrite the script on Monday night against the Edmonton Oilers. Washington responded with a goal of its own less than four minutes after the Oilers’ opener, and then the Capitals erupted for three goals on four shots in a span of just 3:55 in the middle period to salt the game away. The Caps took a 4-2 decision from Edmonton to move to 2-4 on the season and halt a three-game losing run.
Roy, Blues Host Unbeaten Sharks
(St. Louis, MO) -- St. Louis center Derek Roy leads the undefeated Blues into tonight's match-up with the undefeated Sharks at Scottrade Center. In his first four games, Roy has two goals and three assists. Roy will look to keep scoring against the 5-0 Sharks, puck drops at 7 p.m.
