Dusk til dawn: American nightmare

It was a busy night in the NHL and not just because you were trying to find out what game featured Kevin Poulin and Marek Mazanec as the starters. We've got the scoop in our morning recap.

It was a busy night in the NHL and not just because you were trying to find out what game featured Kevin Poulin and Marek Mazanec as the starters. We've got the scoop in our morning recap.

Essential Water Cooler

L.A.'s Jonathan Quick did something awkward to his leg against Buffalo last night, while Ottawa's Craig Anderson got shelled again, this time by the lowly Flyers. Those are two of Team USA's top crease candidates for the looming Olympics, so is it time to start worrying about what seemed like a solid position for the Yankees?

Primetime Play

Florida's Shawn Mathias went with the spin move to beat Frederik Andersen as the Cats upset the Ducks 3-2.

 

Men of the Night

Jakub Voracek, Philadelphia: The Flyers broke out against Ottawa 5-0, with Voracek posting two goals. Steve Mason got the shutout.

John Tavares, NY Islanders: Along with freezing Nashville rookie netminder Marek Mazanec on one score, Johnny T had a helper as the Isles beat the Preds 3-1.

Justin Peters, Carolina: Upset win for the Canes over Colorado and Peters did his part with 34 saves in the 2-1 triumph.

Cody Hodgson, Buffalo: The Sabres finally got their first home win of the season, knocking off the Kings 3-2 in a shootout. Hodgson had both regulation scores.

Bryan Little, Winnipeg: It was a team effort for the Jets in their 3-2 victory over Detroit, but let's give Little some love for notching his 11th of the campaign.

Better Luck Next Time

Sergei Bobrovsky got hung out to dry by the boards and Joel Ward was there to reap the reward on a funny bounce, but the Columbus netminder continues to struggle overall and the 4-3 OT loss to Washington was the latest setback.
