The Devils will live and die by the play of Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise this season. The two star wingers looked quite lively on Columbus Day, then.

Did holiday festivities (or worse, work) force you to miss afternoon games on Columbus Day? Check out highlights of the action here.

The Bruins’ top line of Nathan Horton, David Krejci and Milan Lucic are off to such a slow start that Claude Julien might have to split them up soon.

Mattias Ohlund lost a step or five during the last few seasons, so maybe getting both knees scoped will help him turn things around. It’ll come at a cost, though; he’s expected to miss six to eight weeks to rehab from surgery.

Lightning coach Guy Boucher doesn’t just want the team to remain a thorn in the Capitals’ side – he wants them to be that way in both sides.

Is the Shanahand getting a little heavy now? Many will be surprised that Pierre-Marc Bouchard has been suspended two games for what he claims was an accidental high stick on Matt Calvert.

Devan Dubnyk will be the Oilers’ opening night starter, as he beat Nikolai Khabibulin for the job. It’s going to be a long season in net either way, but Edmonton is hoping to build the large goalie up into a netminder of the future.

The Canadiens sent Blair Betts back to Philadelphia after he failed a physical.

Tomas Vokoun will make his Capitals regular season debut on Monday. Can people calm down about a goalie controversy yet?
Oct 9, 2011, 12:20 PM EST
Many believe that Matt Cooke was actually a victim of an illegal hit for once, as Cory Sarich dazed him in last night’s game. There’s no word yet on whether or not the NHL will discuss it with Sarich, though.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard might be in line for league discipline after high-sticking Matt Calvert.

Winnipeg fans are going to create an insane atmosphere during today’s franchise re-opener, but can a young Jets team keep its composure against the Canadiens?
Oct 9, 2011, 2:17 AM EST
When you allow 52 shots in a game, you can’t blame it all on your goalie. The sad facts show that Mike Smith’s goaltending isn’t the only problem for the Coyotes, who dropped a 6-3 loss to the Sharks that wasn’t even that close.

Ilya Kovalchuk clearly responded differently to Jacques Lemaire last season. Will Peter DeBoer get the same kind of effort out of the Russian star, or will the Devils’ $100 million man tune him out?

The NHL’s first three days of action gave the hockey world a taste of what’s to come from the league’s most dramatically altered teams. So which ones are looking good and which ones might want to buy a new decorator?

For two periods and change, it seemed like Dion Phaneuf’s brutal hit on Stephane Da Costa would tell the story of the Leafs’ win against the Senators. Ottawa made it interesting, though, which made Phil Kessel’s four-point game crucial.

The Ducks gave up minor leaguer Jake Newton and seventh round pick in 2013 for exiled Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kyle Cumiskey.
Oct 8, 2011, 8:23 PM EST
The Nashville Predators’ $6 million forward Martin Erat will miss tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues with an “upper body injury,” according to Josh Cooper. Cooper and many others worry that the vaguely described problem is a recurrence of back issues that kept Erat out of 18 games last season. Erat is in a…

There’s good news for the Blackhawks and bad news for their star opponents: Dave Bolland should be back in the lineup tonight.
Oct 8, 2011, 7:32 PM EST
If it wasn’t already clear enough, the Avalanche can say officially say goodbye to their great first generation of hockey now that Peter Forsberg’s jersey number will be retired.
Oct 7, 2011, 5:32 PM EST
Surprisingly enough, the Blackhawks will roll Patrick Kane out at center during the team’s season opener against the Stars tonight.
Oct 7, 2011, 4:58 PM EST
Mike Richards won round one of the battle of Richards as his Kings beat Brad Richards’ Rangers 3-2 in overtime today.
Oct 7, 2011, 4:31 PM EST
It might just be one game against a potent Sabres team, but this season might be a long one for the Ducks’ defense.
Oct 7, 2011, 3:11 PM EST
It’s strange to see a team depend on Ryan Whitney as much as the Oilers do. Either way, Edmonton fans should be glad to know that he might be ready for the team’s season opener.
Oct 7, 2011, 12:14 PM EST
In a surprising move that will cause many to overreact, the Capitals will start Michal Neuvirth in their first game of the season instead of Tomas Vokoun.
