Daily NHL Recap

Since Predators-Islanders ended first I thought I'd use something from their game on MLK Day

Plenty of MLK Day pucks on Monday, starting with the Preds-Islanders on Long Island and ending with the Bruins-Panthers in Florida

Nashville Predators 3 at New York Islanders 1 – The Islanders allowed three first period goals to the Predators and that was all she wrote. Nashville scored their first goal two minutes in and the last with nine minutes remaining in the first building a 3-0 lead. Pekka Rinne made 36-of-37 saves in the victory over New York.

Colorado Avalanche 1 at Phoenix Coyotes 6 – Phoenix scored two goals in each period en route to a 6-1 win over visiting Colorado. Shane Doan netted two goals in the game, the first broke a 1-1 tie in the final minute and a half of the opening period which the Coyotes didn’t look back after. Doan opened the second period scoring also making it 3-1 at the time. Boyd Gordon also found the net twice for the ‘Yotes.

Winnipeg Jets 2 at Ottawa Senators 0 – The Jets went into Canada’s capital city and shutout one of the hottest teams in the NHL. Jim Slater scored 49 seconds in for the Jets who also added a second goal in the middle period of the game.

Ottawa showed off their new video board then the Jets got the win on Monday night

Buffalo Sabres 0 at Detroit Red Wings 5 – The Wings cannot lose at home and broke a franchise record with their 15th straight win at the Joe (last loss at home was on Nov. 3rd). Detroit scored three goals in the first period and two more in the second in the route of Buffalo. Jimmy Howard pitched the shutout in the motor city.

Dallas Stars 0 at St. Louis Blues 1 – St. Louis under Ken Hitchcock might be the move of the season with how they’ve played since his arrival. T.J. Oshie scored with nine minutes left in the lone goal of the game as the Blues continue their rise in the standings out west and are tied with Chicago with 60 points (most in the league).

Boston Bruins 3 at Florida Panthers 2 F/SO – Boston took a 1-0 into the second period when the teams combined for three goals and entered the third tied at two. Overtime wasn’t enough as the teams went to a shootout. David Krejci scored in the fourth round to give the Bruins the two points but the Panthers skated off with a point.
