Gonna have to hope Sens/Leafs is competitive, not sure I’ll be able to watch the Blues/Caps.

Also, Oilers lineup tonight:

Nygard - McDavid - Neal
Draisaitl - RNH - Kassian
Granlund - Haas (?) - Chiasson
Khaira - Cave - Archibald

Insert sad McDavid face. Free McDavid.

Martin Jones has allowed a goal on the very first shot he’s faced in 4 of the last 5 season openers (including tonight). Amazing. (via @KKurzNHL)

The Vegas trainer was just 5 steps onto the ice during play before realizing play was still going on and running back to the bench

James Neal has a hat trick and it’s still the second period. Five goals on the season so far. Time to give Holland the Executive of Year Award.

Make that four goals tonight.

Lucic had 6 goals all of last season.

Flames get an extra 3rd in the deal if Neal scores 21+ and Lucic scores 10 or more goals less than Neal. Well on our way to that happening. What a great trade condition.

New Jersey. Woof. Lots of preseason hype after their busy offseason.

Home opener they jump out to a 4-0 lead against the Jets, blow it and lose 5-4 in a shootout. Then head to Buffalo and get waxed. 7-2. Next up was a 4-0 loss at Philly. They squeak out a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers. Lost 3-0 to the Bruins on Saturday. Looking to get their first win of the season today they jump out to a 4-1 lead on Florida. It’s now 6-4 Panthers. Hynes has to be on the hot seat.
