    Preview: NY Islanders at New Jersey

    When: 1:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey

    The surprising New Jersey Devils vie for their sixth win in seven outings when they begin a pronounced home stretch on Saturday afternoon against the Metropolitan Division-rival New York Islanders. Travis Zajac scored twice on the power play in New Jersey’s 4-1 triumph over Philadelphia on Thursday to increase his total to four goals and three assists in his last five games.

    Saturday’s tilt begins a string of five the next seven games at the Prudential Center for the Devils, who have dropped six in a row to New York. The Islanders fell to 6-1-1 in their last eight after squandering a third-period lead en route to a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina on Thursday. “You’re not going to win every night, but we have to bring a better effort,” said Frans Nielsen, who scored a highlight-reel goal versus the Hurricanes and has three tallies in his last two contests. New York boasts the league’s top-ranked penalty kill as it has thwarted its last 23 short-handed situations and is 33-for-36 (91.7 percent) on the season.

    TV: 1 p.m. ET, MSG (New York), MSG-Plus (New Jersey), RSN

    ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (6-2-2): Captain John Tavares certainly wasn’t pleased with his performance in his last game, as he was held off the scoresheet for the second straight contest after collecting four goals and six assists in his previous six. “I definitely think about (Thursday’s) game when I got to bed, when I got up the next morning. It’s not the first time I’ve had a bad game and it won’t be the last,” he said. Tavares has dominated the Devils by scoring six goals and setting up four others in the last seven meetings while accumulating 20 points (11 goals, nine assists) in 28 all-time encounters.

    ABOUT THE DEVILS (5-4-1): Kyle Palmieri has scored in back-to-back contests and added two assists versus the Flyers on Thursday. “It was a great effort,” coach John Hynes told reporters of the 24-year-old Palmieri. “You see a guy make a real hard play, sacrifice his body to block a shot and then winds up scoring the winning goal.” Adam Henrique has been held off the scoresheet in each of his last two contests after recording all six of his team-leading goals in his previous seven games.


    1. New Jersey G Cory Schneider will make his eighth consecutive start on Saturday.

    2. With 14 points, the Islanders are off to their best 10-game start since 2001-02.

    3. Devils RW Jiri Tlusty (upper body) is “questionable” to play in Saturday’s game, Hynes told the Bergen Record.

    PREDICTION: Islanders 4, Devils 1


    Preview: San Jose at Dallas

    When: 3:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

    Goaltender Antti Niemi could get a chance to face the team that jettisoned him in the offseason when the Dallas Stars host the San Jose Sharks on Saturday afternoon. Niemi, who had a career-high 23 regulation losses in his fifth and final season with San Jose, was sent packing to the Stars in June in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick.

    “He worked as hard an anybody in this organization when he was here,” Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said of Niemi. “He worked to make himself better.” Niemi has surrendered three goals in each of his last two starts but has been bailed out by his teammates on both occasions. Dallas battled back from a three-goal deficit in a 4-3 win at Anaheim on Tuesday and scored a pair of third-period goals before pulling out a 4-3 win over Vancouver on captain Jamie Benn’s game-winning tally. The Sharks are in a tailspin since opening the season with four straight victories, going 1-4-0 in their last five.

    TV: 3 p.m. ET, CSN California (San Jose), FSN Southwest (Dallas)

    ABOUT THE SHARKS (5-4-0): Coach Peter DeBoer on Friday declined to reveal whether he will go with Alex Stalock or Martin Jones – who has started the past four games and eight of nine – against the high-scoring Stars. “The thing that jumps right off the page at you is their skill up front,” DeBoer said. “That’s as dynamic a group of forwards as there is. They’re playing with confidence right now. We’re going to have to make sure that our attention to detail is real good.” San Jose is laboring on the power play, coming up empty on all 13 opportunities over the past six games.

    ABOUT THE STARS (8-2-0): Dallas coach Lindy Ruff continued to tinker with his lines during Thursday’s victory over the Canucks, elevating Sharp back to the top line while shifting Cody Eakin to a line with Jason Spezza and Valeri Nichushkin. “I think I have incredible options that I am going to use inside a game depending on who I feel is going the best,” Ruff said. Sharp can play either wing and (Tyler) Seguin can play center or wing. There are options.” Sharp scored twice against Vancouver to give him three goals in his last two after failing to tally in his first eight games with the Stars.


    1. Through Thursday’s play, Benn led the league with nine goals and 17 points while notching multiple points in six of his last seven games.

    2. Pavelski has 16 goals and 39 points in 47 career contests versus the Stars.

    3. Seguin has five goals in eight games against San Jose.

    PREDICTION: Stars 4, Sharks 3


    Preview: Nashville at Los Angeles

    When: 4:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California

    A rocky start to the season seems like a distant memory for the Los Angeles Kings, who take aim at their seventh consecutive victory when they host the Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon. After dropping three straight at home while getting outscored 12-2 to kick off the season, Los Angeles has surrendered a total of six-goals during its six-game tear.

    “I think we thought it was going to be easier than it was,” Kings forward Milan Lucic said of the turnaround. “Once we got back to the drawing board and really took a look at ourselves, as individuals and a team, in the mirror. Asked ourselves: ‘Were we really committed to playing the right way?’ That was the big question.” The Predators continued their hot start by squeezing out a 2-1 victory at San Jose on Wednesday in the opener of a four-game road trip to improve to 7-1-1 on the season. Nashville has had the upper hand in the series, sweeping all three matchups last season to make it five straight wins over Los Angeles.

    TV: 4 p.m. ET, FSN Tennessee (Nashville), FSN West (Los Angeles)

    ABOUT THE PREDATORS (7-1-1): Nashville has excelled at neutralizing the opposition early on, not allowing a first-period goal in each of its first nine games to move within three of tying the league record set by Los Angeles (1974-75). “I think obviously the coaching staff has a big role in preparing us, really making sure we know who we play against and what kind of system and what kind of players,” Rinne said. “I think we’ve done a really good job so far.” Rinne has certainly held up his end with a 6-1-1 mark and 1.74 goals-against average.

    ABOUT THE KINGS (6-3-0): Moving offseason acquisition Lucic to a line with Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli has yielded huge dividends – Lucic and Toffoli have combined for 13 points during the six-game winning streak. “That chemistry is definitely there, and I think it’s building every game, I think the main thing is, we’re having fun and we just have to keep working hard and having fun, and try to continue our success.” Jonathan Quick has permitted five goals in winning his last five starts, but he’s struggled versus Nashville with a 2-7-2 record and 2.93 GAA.


    1. Toffoli has six goals in his last six games, Lucic has five points during a four-game string and Carter has seven points in his last four contests.

    2. Nashville has killed off 23-of-26 penalties while Los Angeles is 4-for-9 with the man advantage over the past four games.

    3. The Kings haven’t beaten the Predators in regulation since March 4, 2013.

    PREDICTION: Kings 3, Predators 2


    Preview: Pittsburgh at Toronto

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario

    Phil Kessel pays his first visit to Toronto since being traded and the Pittsburgh Penguins look to extend their winning streak to four games when they begin a four-game Canadian road trip against the foundering Maple Leafs on Saturday. Kessel, who was dealt to Pittsburgh on July 1 after eight seasons in Toronto, has recorded six points — four goals — in his first 10 games with the Penguins.

    After having a three-game run halted by Dallas on Oct. 22, Pittsburgh began another with road victories over Nashville and Washington, allowing one goal in each contest. The Penguins, who have struggled offensively thus far, might be breaking out of their funk as they scored more than three goals for the first time in a 4-3 triumph over Buffalo on Thursday. Toronto remains in search of its second victory of the season after suffering its fifth consecutive loss Friday against the New York Rangers. The Maple Leafs have tallied nine times during their skid and have scored more than three goals only twice in their first nine contests.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, NHLN, ROOT (Pittsburgh), CBC (Toronto)

    ABOUT THE PENGUINS (6-4-0): Sidney Crosby is off to a rough start this season, as he enters Saturday with just one goal and four assists in his first 10 games. The 28-year-old captain has been kept off the scoresheet in an unfathomable eight contests, including the first five of the campaign. Evgeni Malkin shares the team lead in goals with Kessel and tops the club in overall scoring with 10 points in as many games.

    ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (1-6-2): Joffrey Lupul prevented Toronto from being shut out for the second time this season Friday by scoring with 1:51 remaining in the third period. The loss to New York marked the fifth time this campaign Toronto has been held to fewer than two goals. Captain Dion Phaneuf leads the team in scoring with seven points — all assists.


    1. Pittsburgh extended its winning streak against Toronto to six games on Oct. 17, when it posted a 2-1 home victory in the first of three meetings between the clubs this season.

    2. Penguins C Kevin Porter was assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Friday after notching one assist in eight games.

    3. Toronto LW Rich Clune made his debut with the team Friday, one day after signing a contract, and registered one shot and four hits in 8:40 of ice time.

    PREDICTION: Penguins 6, Maple Leafs 2


    Preview: Detroit at Ottawa

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Canadian Tire Centre, Ottawa, Ontario

    The Ottawa Senators attempt to complete a sweep of a home-and-home series with the Detroit Red Wings when they host their Atlantic Division rivals on Saturday. Ottawa took the opener in Detroit on Friday, skating to a 3-1 victory as Bobby Ryan recorded a goal and an assist.

    The Senators improved to 4-1-0 on the road and hope the triumph can help lead to some success at home, where they are 1-2-2 thus far. Detroit continues to struggle, as it has lost six of its last seven contests (1-5-1) after beginning the season with a three-game winning streak. Offense has been the biggest concern for the Red Wings, who have scored just one goal in four of their last six games. In fact, Detroit has not netted more than three tallies since posting a 4-3 victory at Carolina on Oct. 10 in the second game of the season.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, FSN Detroit, TVA, CITY (Ottawa)

    ABOUT THE RED WINGS (4-5-1): Henrik Zetterberg provided Detroit’s only offense Friday with a power-play goal. The 35-year-old captain is showing no signs of slowing down, as he leads the team in scoring with 12 points. He is on the verge of several milestones, needing one goal for 300 in his career, one assist for 500 and two points for 800.

    ABOUT THE SENATORS (5-3-2): Kyle Turris is off to a strong start in 2015-16 with six goals and five assists in 10 games. The 26-year-old recorded 24 tallies in 82 contests last season. Turris also is closing in on a milestone, as his next goal will be the 100th of his career.


    1. Turris shares the team scoring lead of 11 points with RW Mark Stone (two goals, nine assists), with D Erik Karlsson one point back with 10 assists.

    2. Detroit LW Justin Abdelkader has scored half of his team’s four game-winning goals this season.

    3. Ottawa LW Milan Michalek leads the club with two power-play goals — his only two tallies on the campaign.

    PREDICTION: Senators 3, Red Wings 2


    Preview: Boston at Tampa Bay

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida

    The Tampa Bay Lightning hope to end their baffling offensive drought Saturday as they host the Boston Bruins, who top the league in goals per game. The Lightning led the NHL in scoring a season ago but have recorded one goal during an 0-2-1 slump after a solid start, while their most productive forward line from 2014-15 has yet to find its form.

    The “Triplets Line” of Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov has managed just 11 points in 11 games after combining for 200 in 82 contests last season. “We’re so used to scoring goals, you have to scratch your head a little bit when you go through a stretch like this,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper told reporters after a 2-1 loss to Colorado on Thursday. “They’re working their tails off. It’s only natural to be frustrated.” Boston improved to 5-0-1 since losing to Tampa Bay 6-3 at home on Oct. 12 with Friday’s 3-1 triumph at Florida. Center David Krejci is leading the way for the Bruins with 15 points, including at least one in all nine contests.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, NESN (Boston), Sun Sports (Tampa Bay)

    ABOUT THE BRUINS (5-3-1): Krejci, who notched his 300th career assist Friday, has the longest point streak to start a season for the Bruins since 1992-93. Brad Marchand doubled his goal total for the season with a pair against Florida before receiving a game misconduct for boarding Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov late in the third period. Patrice Bergeron also has played a big part in the Bruins’ revival with 10 points, Loui Eriksson has recorded nine and newcomer Jimmy Hayes, who registered six hits and six shots on Friday, has posted eight.

    ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (5-4-2): Third-leading scorer Jonathan Drouin (six points) and fellow forward Cedric Paquette are doubtful with lower-body injuries while Johnson is questionable with an undisclosed ailment after missing practice Friday. Alex Killorn moved up to Drouin’s spot with captain Steven Stamkos and Ryan Callahan against Colorado and notched his second goal of the campaign. Ben Bishop, who is 3-3-2 lifetime versus the Bruins, has allowed two or fewer goals in six of his 10 starts but is only 3-3-0 in those contests.


    1. Boston G Tuukka Rask has allowed one goal in his last two starts and is 9-4-1 lifetime against Tampa Bay.

    2. Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman is tied for second in the league in assists with 10.

    3. Bruins D Zdeno Chara has produced six points and owns a plus-7 rating in his last six contests.

    PREDICTION: Lightning 4, Bruins 2


    Preview: Washington at Florida

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: BB&T Center, Sunrise, Florida

    The Washington Capitals look to remain unbeaten on the road this season and continue their recent domination in the all-time series when they visit the Florida Panthers on Saturday. The Capitals, who have earned at least a point in 13 consecutive games (11-0-2) against the Panthers, edged Columbus 2-1 on Friday for their sixth victory in seven games overall.

    Captain Alex Ovechkin has had a field day against Florida in his career, posting 32 goals and 35 assists in 52 games, and has recorded at least one point in seven of his eight contests this season. The Panthers attempt to finish a see-saw month with a victory after dropping a 3-1 decision at home to Boston on Friday. Florida was without leading scorer Jaromir Jagr (lower body) in that contest, and the future Hall-of-Famer is questionable for the Saturday while linemate Aleksander Barkov (hand) likely will miss a few more weeks. The Panthers have allowed two power-play goals in three of their last five games and will have to be sharper against Washington, which is 3-0-0 on the road.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, CSN-DC Plus (Washington), FSN Florida

    ABOUT THE CAPITALS (7-2-0): T.J. Oshie, acquired in a big offseason deal with St. Louis, is off to a strong start as he recorded his fourth goal on Friday to push his point total to eight. The other key addition up front for Washington netted the other goal against Columbus as veteran Justin Williams registered his second of the campaign. Braden Holtby defeated the Blue Jackets for his sixth victory of the month, but coach Barry Trotz told reporters after the game that backup Philipp Grubauer would get his second start of the season on Saturday.

    ABOUT THE PANTHERS (5-4-1): Nick Bjugstad must pick up his offensive production with Jagr and Barkov sidelined, and he has responded with four points in his last four contests. The Panthers need more from former Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau , who has yet to score his first goal while notching four assists in his first 10 games. Defenseman Dmitry Kulikov suffered a broken nose and his status is uncertain after Boston’s Brad Marchand drilled him into the boards late in the third period.


    1. Washington C Evgeny Kuznetsov recorded 12 points in a six-game span before being held without a shot on goal Friday.

    2. Florida G Roberto Luongo is 20-10-0 lifetime against Washington and backup Al Montoya has won his only two starts this season.

    3. Capitals D John Carlson is among the league leaders for blue-liners with 10 points, leaving him one shy of 200 for his career.

    PREDICTION: Panthers 4, Capitals 3


    Preview: Winnipeg at Columbus

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio

    Ryan Johansen returned to the Columbus Blue Jackets’ lineup Friday at Washington after missing his team’s first two victories of the season with an illness, and there may be some discord between the All-Star and new head coach John Tortorella. The Blue Jackets host the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday one night after Johansen, who did not play the final six minutes of Tortorella’s debut before being sent home for tests, logged 17 minutes in Friday’s 2-1 loss at Washington.

    For his part, Johansen told reporters he was “100 percent” after Thursday’s practice, but Tortorella – well known for his candidness and intensity – said Johansen, “struggled through the practice.” The Blue Jackets have been markedly better on defense after losing their first eight games of the season, giving up just six goals in their past three contests. The Jets survived a Chicago offensive onslaught Thursday, winning 3-1 as goaltender Michael Hutchinson notched a career-high 45 saves. Rookie Nikolaj Ehlers brings a five-game point streak into Saturday’s contest for Winnipeg, which plays eight of its next nine games away from home.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, SNET-360 and SNET-1 (Winnipeg), FSN Ohio (Columbus)

    ABOUT THE JETS (6-3-1): Maybe being away from the MTS Centre will serve the Jets well, considering Winnipeg opened the season by going 3-1-0 on a four-game road trip before struggling a bit during its first homestand. Hutchinson has won all four of his starts, giving up one goal in three of those games, and leads the NHL in save percentage (.949). Forward Blake Wheeler is in the top 10 in the league in points (12) and has recorded at least one point in nine of Winnipeg’s 10 games.

    ABOUT THE BLUE JACKETS (2-9-0): Center Boone Jenner, who assisted on the lone Blue Jackets tally Friday, has six goals in 11 games and a three-game point streak. Columbus scored three goals on only 14 shots in Tuesday’s victory at New Jersey, but generated far more pressure in its offensive zone Friday while recording 30 shots. Center Brandon Dubinsky won 7-of-10 faceoffs Friday and has won more than half his faceoff attempts in five straight games.


    1. Winnipeg has allowed 30 shots or more eight times in its first 10 games, and 40 or more four times.

    2. Columbus LW Brandon Saad (stomach flu) did not travel to Washington Friday.

    3. The Jets have scored 32 goals, only behind Dallas (35) in the Western Conference.

    PREDICTION: Winnipeg 4, Columbus 2


    Preview: Minnesota at St. Louis

    When: 8:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Scottrade Center, St. Louis, Missouri

    After eliminating St. Louis in the first round of the playoffs, the Minnesota Wild look to continue their run of good fortune against the Blues on Saturday when the Central Division rivals meet at Scottrade Center. Zach Parise tallied twice to close out the playoff series in the spring and also scored in Minnesota’s 3-2 victory over St. Louis on Oct. 10 to give him eight goals and five assists in the last 14 meetings.

    Charlie Coyle netted a pair of goals in the first encounter this season and tallied in each of his last two as the Wild skated to a 5-4 triumph over Chicago on Friday for their fourth win in five outings. St. Louis has also been ascending in the ultra-competitive Central, as it has won its second straight contest and improved to 6-1-1 in its last eight with a 2-1 victory over reeling Anaheim on Thursday. Vladimir Tarasenko, who scored versus the Ducks, netted six six goals in the playoff series against the Wild and joined Alex Steen with a goal and an assist in the first meeting between the clubs earlier in the month. Tarasenko was nursing a bit of limp on Friday, but coach Ken Hitchcock said the Russian is “ready to go” versus Minnesota.

    TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN North (Minnesota), FSN Midwest (St. Louis)

    ABOUT THE WILD (7-2-1): Nino Niederreiter scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period on Friday for his fifth point (three goals, two assists) in his last six contests. Captain Mikko Koivu set up three goals versus the Blackhawks to extend his point streak to eight games, during which he has tallied three times and had seven assists. Defenseman Ryan Suter set up a pair of goals in the first meeting with St. Louis and has two tallies and one assist in his last two games.

    ABOUT THE BLUES (7-2-1): After netting the game-winning goal on Thursday, defenseman Colton Parayko (undisclosed) is expected to be a game-time decision versus Minnesota. “We’ll see where he’s at (on Saturday),” Hitchcock said of the 23-year-old who leads all blue-liners in goals with four. “… He just fell on the ice. We’ll see where he’s at (on Saturday).” Jake Allen has yielded one goal on 49 shots in the past two games and has been confirmed to make his third straight start.


    1. St. Louis has failed on its last 16 power-play opportunities spanning the last four games.

    2. Minnesota has scored with the man advantage in each of its last three contests.

    3. Blues captain David Backes has been held off the scoresheet in four straight games and has just two assists this season.

    PREDICTION: Blues 2, Wild 1


    Preview: Calgary at Edmonton

    When: 10:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 31, 2015

    Where: Rexall Place, Edmonton, Alberta

    The Calgary Flames look to snap out of their doldrums Saturday when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for the second installment of this season’s Battle of Alberta. Calgary’s losing streak reached four games (0-3-1) Friday with a 6-2 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

    The Flames battled back from a pair of one-goal deficits before yielding the final four tallies and falling to 1-5-0 at Scotiabank Saddledome. Edmonton has been extremely streaky thus far this season, beginning the campaign with a four-game losing streak and following with three straight victories before enduring another three-game skid. The Oilers snapped that slide Thursday as they handed Montreal its second straight loss following a season-opening nine-game winning streak. Edmonton struck first in the season series against its provincial rival, posting a 5-2 triumph at Calgary in which rookie phenom Connor McDavid scored two goals and set up another.

    TV: 10 p.m. ET, CBC, TVA

    ABOUT THE FLAMES (2-8-1): Johnny Gaudreau has had trouble scoring goals this season, but he’s had no problem setting them up. The 22-year-old has gone nine games since netting his only tally of the campaign, but he has notched at least one assist in five of his last six contests. Gaudreau leads Calgary with 12 points and is first in the league with 11 assists.

    ABOUT THE OILERS (4-7-0): McDavid is living up to the hype in the early going, recording five goals and seven assists for a team-leading 12 points. The 18-year-old center enters Saturday’s contest witih a seven-game point streak that began in the first matchup with Calgary. Leon Draisaitl had a stellar season debut Thursday, scoring two goals — including the game-winner — to match his total in 37 contests as a rookie last campaign.


    1. Flames RW David Jones has gone six games without a goal since scoring two against the Oilers on Oct. 17.

    2. Edmonton continues its four-game homestand against Philadelphia on Tuesday and wraps it up versus Pittsburgh three nights later.

    3. Karri Ramo is expected to start in goal for Calgary.

    PREDICTION: Flames 3, Oilers 2

    Grand Salami – October
    By VI News

    The Grand Salami in pro hockey is decided by adding up all the goals scored in every game scheduled for that particular day. You can wager on ‘over’ or ‘under’ the Grand Salami total. The total is set by adding up all listed ‘over/under’ odds for each game on that particular day.

    Note: The Grand Salami will have no action if any game is suspended or cancelled before the regulation time of three twenty minute periods. Also, regardless of the number of goals scored during the shoot out portion of the overtime, the final scored recorded for the game will give the winning team on more goal than its opponent based on the score at the end of regulation time.

    *The majority of sportsbooks do not put out a total on the Grand Salami when there is only one game on the card. For tracking purposes, we will continue to show the ‘over/under’ for goals and combined goals scored on days with just one game.
