Flyers' Scott Laughton to miss a month due to broken finger

  Flyers' Scott Laughton to miss a month due to broken finger Laughton's broken finger will test the Flyers' depth at forward.It’s certainly a tough blow for Philadelphia who has come to rely on the 25-year-old as a key option for their penalty kill; his 1:39 SH ATOI per game is second on the team among their forwards. He also took a step towards becoming a reliable secondary scorer last season when he posted career bests in goals (12), assists (20), and points (32), although he was off to a bit of a quieter start this year with three assists in nine games.

VANCOUVER — The New Jersey Devils scored goals 22 seconds apart in the first period then used some key stops by goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood to defeat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 Sunday.

Wayne Simmonds, on the power play, and Jesper Bratt scored for the Devils (5-7-4). Blackwood made 30 saves.

Brock Boeser, on a power play, scored for the Canucks (9-6-3), who are winless in their last four games (0-3-1).

The Canucks are also 0-8-3 in their last 11 games against New Jersey.

The Devils had lost their two previous games but are 5-3-2 in their last 10.

Canuck goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped 25 shots.

Early in the third period Blackwood stopped Vancouver’s Tanner Pearson on a rush, then watched as the rebound went wide of the net. Later he used his stick to steer a Boeser blast wide. In the second period Blackwood made a pad save on an Adam Gaudette shot.

Canucks 7, Panthers 2: Glut of early goals tames toothless Panthers

  Canucks 7, Panthers 2: Glut of early goals tames toothless Panthers The narrative was supposed to be about goaltending. And it was. However, the significant storyline of the Vancouver Canucks being able to deploy either of their two capable stoppers — Thatcher Demko got the call Monday while Jacob Markstrom did the physical and mental re-set — was overshadowed at the other end of the Rogers Arena ice surface. The inability of Florida Panthers’ back-up Sam Montembeault to stop anything in the opening period forced Sergei Bobrovsky to mop up the spill in the crease until the visitors played musical goalies again to start the second period. By then the damage had been done by the Canucks.

''Sometimes you score , sometimes you don't,'' Canucks coach Travis Green said. ''We're in a little rut right now.

It took less then 30 seconds for the Devils to build a 2-0 lead in the first period.

Simmonds opened the scoring at 11:48. Taylor Hall sent a pass into the Canucks zone that Kyle Palmieri directed to Simmonds. He put it past Markstrom for the Devils’ second road power-play goal of the season.

Bratt quickly made it 2-0 at 12:10 when he deflected a Damon Severson point shot into the net for his fourth goal of the season.

The Canucks had dodged a bullet a few minutes earlier on a Devils power play. Hall redirected a puck that got by Markstrom and slowly slid toward the open corner before defenceman Tyler Myers swept it off the goal line.

Boeser’s goal at 12:40 of the second period made the score 2-1. He took J.T. Miller’s pass, used his speed to skate into the Devils zone, then beat Blackwood with a low shot to the far corner. The goal came a few minutes after Markstrom had stopped Hall on a breakaway.

The New Jersey Devils scored goals 22 seconds apart in the first period then relied on a 30-save performance from Blackwood to beat the Canucks 2 - 1 Sunday afternoon. In just his second NHL season Blackwood already has a 4-0-0 record against Vancouver and a .972 save percentage.

It was the second head-to-head brother clash between Vancouver’s Quinn Hughes, the 20-year-old defenceman picked seventh overall in the 2018 draft, and Jack Hughes, the 18-year-old centre picked No. 1 by the Devils in this year’s draft. In an Oct. 19 meeting Jack Hughes scored his first NHL goal in the Devils 1-0 win over the Canucks.

On Sunday, Quinn Hughes earned an assist on Boeser’s goal while Jack was kept off the scoresheet.

Canucks 6, Predators 3: Potent power play unlocks the door to victory .
NASHVILLE — And the power play shall set them free. There were new lines and new pairings. There was new hope that by adding pace and presence, the Vancouver Canucks would be harder to play against and make it easier to improve on that 21st ranking in even-strength scoring. The insertion of Tyler Graovac and Zack MacEwen in place of the scratched Sven Baertschi and Loui Eriksson was going to help script that narrative. But that wasn’t the story. It was the power play that stole the headlines.
