Cornwall ON – There are reasons why so many NHL teams are on a youth kick. The Sens are 0-3 into the NHL season and 0 for 15 on the power play after signing Sergei Gonchar to lead that unit. Relying on aging Daniel Alfredsson and Alex “Big Dawg” Kovalev along with Jason Spezza create a core that is older, slower, and not as gritty as the young and hungry kids flooding the NHL.
The good news for Sens fans is that Goalie Pascal Leclaire is looing like the real deal so far this season. It’s going to be a very long season for hockey fans in the Nations Capital.
Jaroslav Halak is 2-0 with his new team, the St. Louis Blues as they beat Anaheim 5-1 with two goals from Habs cast off Matt D’Agostini. The Ducks have been horrid this season so far being out shot 53-14 by the Blues. Former Montreal captain Saku Koivu scored the lone goal for the Ducks in the fight filled game.
The Islanders beat the Rangers in a 6-4 shoot out. Blake Comeau led the way with 2 goals and an assist and Rick DiPietro picked up the W.
Marty Brodeur and the Devils lost again this time to the Pengins 3-1; Marian Hossa was the difference as the Hawks edged the Sabres 4-3 in Buffalo; the Flyers doubled Colorado 4-2; Vancouver nipped the anemic Florida Panthers 2-1.
