Sure would be nice to have Schultz around today, huh?
The Top Line
Thomas Vanek was dealt to the Islanders in the first big trade of the season. Matt Moulson and 2 first rounders went to Buffalo, Sports Illustrated, Sporting News, TSN, NHL.com, The Local Take #1, The Local Take #2 (It's Schultz, you guys!)
San Jose 5, Ottawa 2 – Good news: Hertl is healthy and he scored a goal early in this one.
Tampa Bay 4, Florida 3 (SO) – And the Lightning are now clearly the best team in Florida. ASAS
Anaheim 4, Columbus 3 – Artem Anisimov wasn't enough for Columbus. Artem Anisimov is never enough.
Colorado 3, Winnipeg 2 – The Avalanche let the Jets think they hd a chance, but then destroyer of all things Paul Stastny scored a game winner in the third. Sorry Winnipeg, but you never stood a chance.
Los Angeles 2, Edmonton 1 (SO) – Good gravy this must have been a boring game
