No Place Like Home, Stars Defeat Kings 3-2 in Overtime

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports A win is a win is a win. The Dallas Stars open the season at home in the American Airlines Center tonight, their first time playing to a full capacity crowd at home since March 10, 2020, and a 4-2 loss against the New York Rangers. The season is only four games old but the Stars have been mercurial at best, currently at 2 wins and 2 losses in the early season. They’ve lost John Klingberg to injury in the first game of the season against the Rangers, and Blake Comeau and Jason Robertson have been out since training camp. The two wins...

Blues at Golden Knights Preview: Stone cold

Photo by Ethan Miller/ Vegas is coming off of a rough loss to the Kings... almost a week ago. If you thought that the Blues waiting until last Saturday to start their season was odd, the Vegas Golden Knights haven’t played a game since October 14th. They’ve had nearly a bye week since their 6-2 drubbing by the Los Angeles Kings. The Blues, on the other hand, are playing their third game in five days. Don’t assume that Vegas is well-rested by any means. They’re in the same boat that the Colorado Avalanche were - they’re perforated by injuries. Max Pacioretty...

Sabres add new defenseman, claim Christian Wolanin off waivers

BUFFALO – The Sabres added depth to their defense corps today, claiming Christian Wolanin off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings. The move comes a day after the Sabres announced they will be without defenseman Henri Jokiharju for at least two weeks after he suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday’s 5-1 season-opening win over the Montreal Canadiens. With Jokiharju injured, the Sabres had only six defensemen on the roster before claiming Wolanin. To make room ... Read the full article

Mark Stone leaves with injury in Golden Knights’ 6-2 loss to Kings

Photo by Juan Ocampo/NHLI via Laurent Brossoit made his Golden Knights debut in a relief appearance. The Vegas Golden Knights traveled to Los Angeles for their first road game of the season to play the Kings but came up short in a very unimpressive 6-2 loss. Mark Stone left the game with a non-contact injury in the second period. He was injured after taking an innocent-looking shot, and he had to be helped to the locker room. He appeared unable to put much pressure on his legs and did not return to the game. Mark Stone forces the turnover, fires off a shot and is...
