      Hello Gentlemen
      Here are some highlites from tonight's games.

      Capitals 2, Sabres 1
      - Capitals goalie Brent Johnston made his season debut before a sold
      out crowd and did not disappoint as he only gave up one goal and
      earned the win
      - Sabres goalie Robert Esche also had an impressive game stopping 30
      of 32 shots he faced from a star laden Washington Team
      - Both teams went a combined 0-11 on the PP

      Blues 6, Lightning 1
      - Missing star centres Joe Thorton and Vincent Lecavalier, Pavol
      Demitra took it upon himself to lead his team to victory scoring his
      first hat trick of the season in the process.
      - Rookie Dany Heatley also scored his 4th of the season to take the
      lead over all rookies in that category

      Devils 4, Stars 0
      - Due to a date misprint on some tickets only 11,000 fans were in
      attendance for what should have been a good game between two strong
      teams
      - Seemingly distracted by the lack of fan support a lethargic Dallas
      team only mustered 23 shots on Martin Brodeur who recorded the shut
      out.

      Rangers 6, Blackhawks 5
      - Tonight's game was as not as open ended as it amy appear but
      neither goalie seemed prepared each having given up some questionable
      goals.
      - 4 players (Stillman and Selanne for the Rangers, Arnott and Doan
      for the Hawks) had 3 point games but the biggest goal went to Cory
      Stillman who scored the OT winner.

      Kings 7, Preds 2
      - Although not the only unbeaten team early in the season the Kings
      train appears unstoppable as they role over another opponent and
      currently stand alone in 1st place with a 3-0-1 record.
      - Every night brings new surprises from the Kings players and tonight
      was no different as Steve Rucchin, who had scored 2 goals in his
      first 3 games, came up with a 5 goal performance. The first 3 goals
      came agianst Vokoun, who was pulled early in the 2nd, and the final
      two against last night's hero for the Preds Mathieu Garon
      - The lone bright spot for the Predators was the play of the recently
      aquired Shaun Van Allen who scored both of the Pred's goals

      Wild 2, Leafs 2
      - It appeared that the Wild, who only mustered 16 shots on net, were
      about to steal a victory due to the strong play of Sean Burke but
      Mats Sundin's goal with only 26 seconds left in regulation allowed
      the Leafs to salvage a tie.
      - Burke faced 35 shots from the Leafs of which the majority came on
      the powerplay but the Leafs were unable to score in their 8
      opportunities with the man advantage

      Canucks 2, Flyers 1
      - For the second consecutive night Flyers shooters were frustrated by
      an inability to finish plays despite outplaying and outshooting their
      opponents
      - The frustration of the Flyers showed early and often as two Flyers
      (Kasparitis and Bureau) were givin game misconducts after dirty hits
      injured 2 Vancouver players (Bure and Klee). Bure left the game in
      the 1st period and did not return but expectations are that he will
      be available for the next game. Klee, however, is expected to miss 2-
      4 months with torn ligaments after being charged by Bureau. Bureau
      has since been suspended for 5 games.

      Bruins 4, Flames 3
      - The flames line of Hejduk, Iginla, and Handzus kept their opponents
      on their toes tonight. Hejduks 2 goals in the second gave the flames
      a one goal advantage going into the 3rd period. Boston responded in
      the 3rd however with Heinze scoring on the PP to tie the game and
      Modano's goal, with only 21 seconds left in regulation, gave the
      Bruins the victory

      Sharks 4, Penguins 1
      - After two frustrating ties the Sharks earned their 1st victory of
      the season. The game was never in doubt with the Sharks quickly
      building up a 4-0 lead.
      - Lang's goal midway through the 3rd broke Belfour's shutout bid and
      Straka's assist extnded his points streak to 5 games

      Oilers 3, Thrashers 1
      - Edmonton scored 3 goals in the 1st period, 2 of which were less
      than 30 seconds apart, and then settled into a more defensive game to
      earn the victory
      - Palffy and Smyth combined for 2 of the Oilers goals
      - The Thrashers will be looking for better things tommorrow as Steve
      Yzerman makes his debut as a Thrasher (ouch it hurts saying that)

      Till next time.
