    Preview: San Jose at Colorado

    When: 3:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 1, 2015

    Where: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado

    Two teams looking for something positive to change their fortunes meet when the San Jose Sharks visit the Colorado Avalanche for a Sunday matinee. The Sharks have lost five of their last six games after starting the season 4-0-0 and the Avalanche are just 1-4-1 in their last six contests, scoring only nine goals in the process.

    San Jose gave up the final two goals to drop a 5-3 decision at Dallas on Saturday and captain Joe Pavelski told reporters, “We’ve got to get a little bit more out of each and every guy and we’ve got to find ways to win these games.” Offseason free-agent signee Joel Ward scored his team-leading sixth goal Saturday and Pavelski notched his fifth. The Avalanche could not build on an impressive 2-1 victory at Tampa Bay and fell 3-2 at Carolina on Friday. “We were expecting more, for sure,” Colorado general manager Joe Sakic told the Denver Post. “But we can’t hang our heads. Now, it’s time to perform. We gotta get wins.”

    TV: 3 p.m. ET, CSN California (San Jose), Altitude (Colorado)

    ABOUT THE SHARKS (5-5-0): San Jose recorded a pair of power-play goals Saturday after going 1-for-19 with the man advantage in its previous eight contests. Veteran Patrick Marleau has gone six contests without a goal and owns a minus-7 rating in that span after scoring three times during the team’s four-game winning streak to open the season. Martin Jones, who won his first four starts with the Sharks while allowing just two goals before going 1-3-0, should be back in net after sitting out against Dallas.

    ABOUT THE AVALANCHE (3-6-1): Nathan MacKinnon (10 points) and captain Gabriel Landeskog (five goals) lead Colorado’s offense while Alex Tanguay has notched three points in the last two games. The Avalanche must get contributions from others, as former third overall pick Matt Duchene along with offseason acquisition Carl Soderberg have just one goal apiece. Erik Johnson is the only defenseman with a goal and fellow blue liner Tyson Barrie, who recorded 12 tallies and 53 points last season, has been held to just two assists.


    1. San Jose C Joe Thornton has 1,266 career points – one shy of Jean Ratelle for 35th place on the all-time list.

    2. Colorado is 2-for-32 with the man advantage over its last seven games and has allowed six power-play goals in the past four contests.

    3. The Sharks have won the last three meetings, including a shootout victory last season at Colorado.

    PREDICTION: Sharks 4, Avalanche 3

    Preview: Tampa Bay at Carolina

    When: 5:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 1, 2015

    Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina

    The Carolina Hurricanes have rebounded well after dropping the first three games of the season and look to extend their winning streak to four when the suddenly struggling Tampa Bay Lightning visit on Sunday. The Hurricanes notched four victories on a seven-game road trip and were sharp in Friday’s 3-2 home victory over Colorado.

    “We’ve got some traction now,” Carolina coach Bill Peters told reporters. “We’re going in the right direction, for sure.” Hurricanes captain Eric Staal has collected 69 points in 64 career games against Tampa Bay, which has scored only two goals in dropping four consecutive contests. The Lightning, who did not lose more than two straight in 2014-15 on the way to the Stanley Cup Final, play their next four away from home over a seven-day period. “We can’t go out there and expect to win games because of what happened last year,” captain Steven Stamkos said. “We’re out of sync, and it’s pretty clear when you look at the way we are losing games.”

    TV: 5 p.m. ET, Sun Sports (Tampa Bay), FSN Carolinas

    ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (5-5-2): While Tyler Johnson has yet to score in 12 contests after netting 29 tallies a season ago, Stamkos has gone five games without a goal after registering five in his first seven contests. It hasn’t helped that the Lightning have been without skillful 20-year-old Jonathan Drouin (day-to-day) the last two games due to a lower-body injury. Andrei Vasilevskiy, who missed October while recovering from blood clots, is expected to be recalled and may get the start Sunday.

    ABOUT THE HURRICANES (5-6-0): Elias Lindholm is doubtful for Sunday, but his lower-body injury is not considered serious and he may only miss one contest. Defenseman Justin Faulk and Victor Rask lead the team with four goals apiece while Kris Versteeg tops the club with six assists. Cam Ward, who is expected back in net after beating Colorado on Friday, owns a 19-16-3 record with an .899 save percentage in his career against Tampa Bay.


    1. Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman leads the team with 10 points but was held without a shot on goal Saturday for only the second time this season.

    2. Carolina D Ryan Murphy, the 12th overall pick in the 2011 draft, has earned a more consistent role this season and has notched four assists in 11 games.

    3. The Lightning had beaten the Hurricanes five straight times until Carolina won the last meeting 4-2 at home on Jan. 27.

    PREDICTION: Lightning 6, Hurricanes 3


    Preview: Winnipeg at Montreal

    When: 7:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 1, 2015

    Where: Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec

    The Montreal Canadiens return home Sunday to host the Winnipeg Jets, and after scoring a total of four goals in back-to-back losses after a 9-0-0 start, they appear to have rediscovered their firepower. Dale Weise recorded his first career hat trick in Friday’s 6-2 win at Calgary – the fifth time in 12 games the Canadiens have scored four or more goals.

    Balance has been the key to Montreal’s flying start as six Canadiens have scored three or more goals while five players have 10 or more points. “That’s why we won nine in a row to start the season, with contributions from everybody,” Weise told reporters after Friday’s contest. The Jets opened a four-game road trip Saturday with a 3-2 victory at Columbus – their fourth win in five road contests this season. Blake Wheeler continues to emerge as one of the top offensive threats in the Western Conference, totaling a goal and an assist Saturday to give him 14 points.

    TV: 7 p.m. ET, NHLN, RSN (Winnipeg), RDS (Montreal)

    ABOUT THE JETS (7-3-1): Winnipeg has allowed the game’s opening goal eight times in 11 games, but first-period tallies by Bryan Little and Andrew Copp gave the Jets a 2-0 lead 6:45 into Saturday’s game. “Last year, for the most part, we were a team that would come out and put other teams behind the eight-ball,” center Adam Lowry told reporters before the contest. “That’s something we’re going to have to fix.” Michael Hutchinson, who did not play Saturday after a career-best 45-save performance Thursday against Chicago, is expected to start.

    ABOUT THE CANADIENS (10-2-0): As if Montreal needed any offensive help, Paul Byron recorded a goal and an assist Friday in his second game with the Canadiens. Captain Max Pacioretty leads the team with seven goals and is the only Montreal player in the top 10 in the league, while Tomas Plekanec is among the league leaders in points (12). Vezina and Hart Trophy winner Carey Price likely will start in goal after not playing Friday as he aims for his eighth win in 10 contests.


    1. Winnipeg has scored a power-play goal in two straight games after going three in a row without one.

    2. Price has started all four Canadiens’ home games, going 4-0-0 with 133 saves on 137 shots.

    3. The Jets killed off five penalties Saturday and 85.3 percent of opposing power plays through 11 games.

    PREDICTION: Canadiens 3, Jets 1


    Preview: Buffalo at NY Islanders

    When: 7:30 PM ET, Sunday, November 1, 2015

    Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York

    The New York Islanders hope to have their captain back in the lineup as they attempt to extend their point streak to five games when they host the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. John Tavares, who leads New York with 11 points, was a late scratch for Saturday afternoon’s shootout loss to the Devils in New Jersey due to an illness and was sent home.

    “I just wanted to wait to make sure that he got re-evaluated by our doctors,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano told reporters. “He’s just not feeling too well right now.” New York rallied from a 2-0 deficit to earn a point against New Jersey and move to 2-0-2 in its last four contests. Buffalo is looking to put together consecutive victories for the first time this season after defeating Philadelphia on Friday for the second time in four days. The Islanders went 2-0-1 against the Sabres last season, including a 3-0 triumph at home.

    TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, MSG (Buffalo), MSG Plus (New York)

    ABOUT THE SABRES (4-7-0): New York will get its first look at promising rookie Jack Eichel, who has endured some growing pains in the early going. The 19-year-old, who was this year’s second overall draft pick, has recorded four goals in 11 games this season, scoring in two of his first three NHL contests and two of his last four. Eichel has been getting more chances of late, registering 14 shots in his last two games after recording 15 over his previous four contests.

    ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (6-2-3): Tavares is not the only member of the team to feel under the weather this week as Jaroslav Halak and Ryan Strome missed Thursday’s overtime loss to Carolina, but both returned to action against New Jersey. Two of Anders Lee’s three goals this season have come on the power play, while both of Mikhail Grabovski’s tallies were game-winners. Frans Nielsen is riding a three-game goal-scoring streak during which he has netted four of his five tallies on the season.


    1. The Islanders have scored a power-play goal in five straight games and are a perfect 26-for-26 on the penalty kill over their last eight contests.

    2. Buffalo C Tyler Ennis has missed two games with a lower-body injury and will be a game-time decision.

    3. Eichel is tied for the team lead in goals with C Ryan O’Reilly, who also tops the club with 13 points.

    PREDICTION: Islanders 3, Sabres 1


    Preview: Nashville at Anaheim

    When: 8:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 1, 2015

    Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, California

    The Nashville Predators look to extend their point streak to seven games when they visit the punchless Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Nashville has gone 4-0-2 since suffering its lone regulation loss of the season Oct. 15 to the New York Islanders, including a 1-0-1 mark on its four-game road trip.

    James Neal scored a power-play goal in Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss at Los Angeles, giving him at least one point in six of his last seven contests. Anaheim returns home after a disastrous 0-4-1 road trip during which it was shut out twice and scored a total of five goals. The trek began Oct. 22 in Nashville, where the Predators rolled to a 5-1 victory. The Ducks managed fewer than two tallies for the eighth time in 10 contests this season Thursday when they dropped a 2-1 decision at St. Louis.

    TV: 8 p.m. ET, FSN Tennessee (Nashville), Prime Ticket, FSN San Diego (Anaheim)

    ABOUT THE PREDATORS (7-1-2): Neal is off to a strong start this season, as he leads Nashville in goals (seven), power-play tallies (three) and points (10). The three man-advantage goals in 10 games match the amount he totaled in 67 contests last campaign. Craig Smith, who has yet to notch an assist, has gone five games without a goal after scoring three in his first five contests.

    ABOUT THE DUCKS (1-7-2): Offense has been Anaheim’s major issue this season, as the club has scored a league-low 10 goals in as many games. Mike Santorelli and defenseman Hampus Lindholm are tied for first on the team with two goals and share the club lead of three points with Corey Perry. Speaking of the former Hart Trophy winner, Perry — who has scored 27 or more goals seven times in his career — has yet to tally in 2015-16.


    1. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf remains sidelined as he recovers from an appendectomy.

    2. Nashville is two shy of matching the NHL record of 12 games without allowing a first-period goal to start a season, which was set by Los Angeles in 1974-75.

    3. Anaheim has been shut out five times in its first 10 contests.

    PREDICTION: Ducks 3, Predators 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.
