Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports“It feels like nothing’s changed,” said McDavid. “I didn’t want to push it too hard but you have to push it hard enough to ensure that it’s healing.

Severino sharp in season debut, Yanks top Angels 8-0 NEW YORK (AP) — Luis Severino pitched four dominant innings and reached 98.8 mph in his injury-delayed season debut for the Yankees, an 8-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night that moved New York to the brink of clinching its 21st postseason appearance in 25 years.

In State College, Pennsylvania, Jack Eichel scored 4:52 into overtime to lift the Buffalo Sabres to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Jake Allen: Blues promised that they wouldn't trade me

  Jake Allen: Blues promised that they wouldn't trade me The language used by Allen paints a pretty clear picture of where his head is entering the 2019-20 campaign. The 29-year-old is confident that the Blues want him in the mix and calls the play of 26-year-old rookie Binnington “a run”. In reality, Binnington greatly outperformed Allen in the second half of the season and earned the lion’s share of starts. He finished the season with a GAA nearly one whole goal better than Allen and save percentage more than 20 points better. It wasn’t close between the two, and it was actually the second poor season in a row for Allen.

New Jersey Devils first overall pick Jack Hughes scored twice in his NHL preseason debut including the OT winner.

Hughes and the Devils ' prospects will get two more games in Buffalo to knock the rust off before the team opens training camp next week. And that's when most eyes will be on Hughes , the 5-foot-10 playmaking center from Orlando, Florida, who was the eighth American to be selected with the No. 1

Eichel finished with a goal and an assist.

John Gilmour, Conor Sheary, Henry Jokiharju and Tage Thompson also scored for the Sabres. Carter Hutton started in goal and made two saves on three shots before being replaced by Jonas Johansson, who stopped 11 of 14 shots.

Andrew Agozzino, Sam Lafferty, Adam Johnson and Ryan Haggerty scored for Pittsburgh, which rallied from a 4-1 deficit with three third-period goals to force overtime.

Penguins starter Casey DeSmith made 23 saves on 25 shots in his half of the game. Tristan Jarry took the loss after allowing three goals on 22 shots.

SBISA GETS TIEBREAKING GOAL FOR ISLANDERS

In Philadelphia, Luca Sbisa' tie-breaking goal early in the third period lifted the New York Islanders to a 3-1 victory over the Flyers.

Thomas Hickey and Erik Brown also scored for the Islanders.

Christopher Gibson was credited with the win as he made 13 saves on 13 shots after replacing starter Semyon Varlamov, who made 10 saves.

We can all agree the start of an NHL season brings renewed excitement, but we won't all agree on who will be the best. Sporting News' hockey experts give their picks for the 2020 playoff picture and awards.Officially, the slate has been wiped clean and all 31 teams are now set to travel, on what they hope, is a road painted in silver with the Stanley Cup at the end. But that road is a long, twisting, curving one with never-ending potholes. It is one that eventually splits where only one can take the road less traveled — one that less than 100 teams have taken — one that ends in a championship.
