NHL Standings & Scores

Posted on 15 Oct, 2016, by in NHL

A Friday without too many games helped three players stand out in the early NHL action: Connor McDavid for the Edmonton Oilers with another 3-point game, P.K. Subban with his first goal for the Nashville Predators in a Power Play win over the Chicago Blackhawks, and two goals by Sean Couturier in an impressive away win over the Los Angeles Kings.


Chicago Blackhawks 2  Nashville Predators 3: The Blackhawks pick up another loss (o-for-2 so far), conceding each time on a power play. Chicago took the lead twice in the first period, but first lost the lead to P.K. Subban’s first goal on his new team, followed by Roman Josi scoring near the end of the period. Near the end of the second period, it was Mike Fisher taking advantage of another Power Play to win the game for the Predators.

Edmonton Oilers 5  Calgary Flames 3: The Maple Leafs have a teenage sensation, but so do the Oilers, winning their first two games while the 19-year old Connor McDavid stars on the ice, with his second consecutive 3-point game, something never done by a new Oilers player, and never done by an NHL teenager to start his career. He finished with a goal and two assists, as two goals from Leon Draisaitl in the third period helped them pull away.

Philadelphia Flyers 4  Los Angeles Kings 2: The Flyers win their season opener, while the Kings keep looking for their first win. After a scoreless first, the Flyers stunned the home team with four goals in the second, taking a 4-0 nothing lead, including two by Sean Couturier. Travis Konecny helped out with two assists.
