The Price is Right

The NHL suspended Gabriel Landeskog for four games for his hit on Matthew Tkachuk of the Flames.

 

The Senators sent Thomas Chabot to the minors on Sunday and recalled him on Monday. We hope he is collecting frequent flyer points or at least gets a discount on his bus trips.

 

There were five games on Monday so without further ado, let’s get to it.

FLORIDA 3 NEW JERSEY 2

 

The Florida Panthers got bad news on Monday when they found out that Evgenii Dadonov would be out for four-six weeks with an upper body injury believed to be a shoulder.

 

They took it out on the New Jersey Devils as Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck and Jared McCann with the winner scored for Florida.

 

Roberto Luongo turned away 23-of-25 shots to get the win. Cory Schneider was strong in the Devils cage despite giving up three goals as he stopped 35.

 

Rookies Nico Hischier and Jesper Bratt replied for the Devils.

 

Denis Malgin lined up in Dadonov’s spot alongside Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau.

 

Mike Matheson, who has had a tough start to the season, assisted on two Florida goals.

 

Luongo won his 200th game for the Panthers franchise and became only the second goalie in NHL history to win at least 200 games for two teams with Patrick Roy being the first to do so.

 

MONTREAL 3 COLUMBUS 1

 

It sure looks like Carey Price is back. Price made 37 saves and has given up only one goal in two games since missing 10 games with a lower body injury. He has stopped 73 of 74 shots in the two games. His GAA is 3.24 with a .898 save percentage which tells you how bad he was in the first month of the season.

 

Brendan Gallagher and Jonathan Drouin staked the Habs to a 2-0 first period lead but Pierre-Luc Dubois cut the lead in half with his fourth of the season.

 

It took Andrew Shaw’s empty netter to clinch the victory for Montreal who snapped the Blue Jackets win streak at seven games.

 

Sergei Bobrovsky took a rare loss despite making 25 saves.

 

Boone Jenner had seven shots on goal as well as 11 hits. Dubois had nine hits.

 

PITTSBURGH 5 PHILADELPHIA 4 (Overtime)

 

The Flyers cannot hold onto a lead. For the eighth straight game, the Flyers were unable to taste victory and for the fifth time, they gave up a two goal lead as the Penguins scored with 1:04 left in the third to tie it and then won it on Sidney Crosby’s goal in overtime.

 

The Flyers in the eight games are 0-3-5 but have been outscored 14-2 after 40 minutes of play.

 

Pittsburgh netminder Matt Murray was injured in the second period when Jakub Voracek of the Flyers smashed into him on a breakaway. Murray had to be helped off the ice and did not return. He made 20 saves on 22 shots.

 

Tristan Jarry finished up in goal and gave up two on 10 shots. Despite the less-than-stellar effort, Jarry got his second win of the season.

 

Brian Elliott gave up five goals but managed to turn away 47 shots.

 

Jake Guentzel had a couple of goals and an assist while Crosby had the overtime winner and a pair of assists. Bryan Rust and Patric Hornqvist also scored with Justin Schultz getting a couple of helpers.

 

Michael Raffl scored his second of the season and added an assist. Sean Couturier, Shayne Gostisbehere and Travis Konecny completed the scoring for the Flyers. Claude Giroux had two assists.

 

Hornqvist had seven shots on goal.

 

WINNIPEG 7 MINNESOTA 2

 

The Minnesota Wild took a quick 2-0 first period lead on goals by Jason Zucker and Chris Stewart and then watched the Jets score seven straight to easily win 7-2.

 

It was a huge night for the Jets top line of Mark Scheifele, Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler as each had a goal and two assists to lead the Jets.

 

Joel Armia, Jacob Trouba, Bryan Little and Mathieu Perreault also scored for Winnipeg.

 

Connor Hellebuyck was not busy in net for the Jets as he made only 17 saves for the win.

 

The Wild on the other hand, gave Alex Stalock a rare start and he did disappoint, allowing all seven goals on only 28 shots.

 

Kyle Quincey had 16 penalty minutes including a double minor for roughing in the third period as well as a misconduct.

 

CHICAGO 7 ANAHEIM 3

 

The third line of the Blackhawks were strong on Monday as Alex DeBrincat had the hat trick and added an assist while Patrick Sharp and Ryan Hartman each had a goal and assist to lead the Blackhawks to a 7-3 win over the injury-riddled Anaheim Ducks.

 

Nick Schmaltz had a big game as well with a goal and two assists while Patrick Kane’s name was sprinkled through the scoresheet with a troika of assists.

 

Brandon Saad and Artem Anisimov also scored for the Blackhawks.

 

Corey Crawford made 25 saves for the win.

 

Chris Wagner had a pair of goals for the Ducks while Jakob Silfverberg had a goal and an assist.

 

John Gibson started the game and took the loss but was pulled in the second period after giving up four goals while making 18 saves.

 

Ryan Miller finished up with 10 saves on 13 shots.

 

DeBrincat has thrown his name into the hat for the Calder Trophy. He scored only once in October but has nine goals in 11 November contests.
