Sabres 4, Canadiens 3 (SO) MONTREAL — Center Brian Flynn scored the shootout winner to give Buffalo a win over Montreal at Bell Centre.

The Canadiens got goals from right winger Brendan Gallagher, who on Saturday received a six-year contract extension, center Lars Eller and left winger Max Pacioretty. Goaltender Jhonas Enroth stopped 41 shots for the Sabres (8-4-12). Dustin Tokarski made 23 saves for Montreal (16-7-2).

McElhinney (1-6-1) stopped 40 of the first 41 shots, but he was in no position to deny Wilson’s game-winner, his fourth goal of the year. source: http://www.koco.com/sports/nhl-game-roundup-islanders-penguins-tied-atop-division/29988000

Rinne missed much of last season with a hip injury and an infection. He returned for the end of 2013-14 and starred for Finland at the world championships. The Predators are back in contention under new coach Peter Laviolette thanks in large part to some new additions. Twenty-year-old Filip Forsberg is Nashville’s leading scorer, and his linemates free-agent signee Mike Ribeiro and trade acquisition James Neal have produced plenty, as well. “We believe that we have a good team here and we can compete against any team,” Ribeiro said. Goaltending has been crucial to the early success of three Canadian teams: Ryan Miller ‘s Canucks, Jonas Hiller ‘s Flames and Carey Price ‘s Canadiens. Miller (2.42, .911) has stabilized the position in Vancouver after a few years of drama surrounding Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo . After shutting out Columbus last week, Miller said he’s “still building the right kind of game to play with this team.” So is Hiller, signed to be the Flames’ starter after getting pushed out by younger depth in Anaheim. He and Karri Ramo have been excellent in Calgary, and defensive scoring has gotten GM Brad Treliving’s team into a playoff spot in the early going. “Early on it was our goaltender making a bunch of saves and our defense scoring,” Treliving said. source: http://www.ctpost.com/sports/article/Fall-of-Stars-among-early-surprises-of-NHL-season-5928082.php

Louis Blues for one year 1 hour ago .

The signing of Brodeur comes in the wake of a lower-body injury sustained by starting goaltender Brian Elliott. The future Hall of Famer was cut by New Jersey earlier this year after 21 seasons with the Devils. The 42-year-old netminder could make his St. Louis debut as early as Wednesday, when the Blues play the Chicago Blackhawks . Brodeur begins his latest chapter after leading the Devils to three Stanley Cups. Selected in the first round of the 1990 NHL draft, Brodeur helped the Devils to three Stanley Cups posting a record 688 career wins and 124 shutouts in 21 seasons in New Jersey. In international competition, he won two Olympic gold medals for Canada in 2002 and 2010 Winter Games.

Blackhawks-Ducks Preview – Yahoo Sports

It isn’t the most ideal situation for any club trying to keep pace in a competitive division, but Chicago (13-8-1) has been rolling since the trip began Nov. 20. The Blackhawks had beaten Calgary and Edmonton before a 3-2 victory at Colorado on Wednesday. Jonathan Toews , Andrew Sharp and Brian Bickell scored, while Patrick Kane also pitched in with his first three-assist night since Dec. 8, 2013. Two of the three goals came on the power play, making it six straight games in which Chicago has scored with the advantage after netting two in its previous five. “We’ve been pleased and happy with it,” coach Joel Quenneville said of his power-play unit, which ranks among league leaders with 19 goals. “Two big goals got the momentum back on our side. What a hockey game that was, anybody’s hockey game.” The Blackhawks’ lone loss on the swing came at Vancouver on Sunday. The circus trip has proved successful for them in years past. They went 6-1 last season to improve to 22-11-4 since Toews and Kane entered the NHL in 2007. “That was a really big win for us,” said Corey Crawford, who made 27 saves for his 10th win. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-ducks-preview-212630066–nhl.html
