Leafs lose in OT – Sens just lose – Doan suspended 3 games for Head Shot – NHL Scores n bits – October 19, 2010 – Cornwall Ontario

Cornwall ON – Leafs fans cried tonight, but not as loudly as those whiny Sens fans as Toronto lost its first game of the year, 2-1 in over time to the lowly New York Islanders.   Phil Kessel scored a goal, but it wasn’t enough as the Leafs lose their first game of the 2010-11 season.  John Tavares scored the winner in OT.

Ottawa was blown out in the first period and never caught up as the Penguins clipped them 5-2.   The Avalanche snowed in the Rangers, in NY 3-1;  Domenic Moore’s two goals helped Tampa Bay edge Dallas 5-4; and the Chicago Black Hawks gave Jaroslav Halak the blues with their 3-2 OT win over St. Louis.

In other NHL news Shane Doan is $73,387.11 poorer after whacking Dan Sexton in the head.   He was given a 3 day suspension for the infraction that drew no penalty during the game.
