EDMONTON JOURNAL/THE VANCOUVER SUN: Lauri Korpikoski’s overtime goal lifted the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Nail Yakupov also tallied for the Oilers, thanks to a nice set-up by rookie Connor McDavid. While the Canucks out-chanced and outshot the Oilers, they could only put one goal past goalie Anders Nilsson.

STLTODAY.COM/WINNIPEG SUN: Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice and Brian Elliott made 27 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 victory in what was a physical contest between the two clubs. Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba could face supplemental discipline for an illegal hit to the head of Blues forward Troy Brouwer. Dustin Byfuglien received a charging penalty on Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester and coincidental roughing minors with Scottie Upshall.


Notable headlines.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Off to a strong 6-0-0 start to the season, the Montreal Canadiens are giving the doomsayers among their fan base little to complain about.

TORONTO STAR: After years in former coach Randy Carlyle’s doghouse, Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner is thriving under new coach Mike Babcock.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: That’s because Babcock is trying to nurture Gardiner’s talent and bolster his confidence, whereas Carlyle tried to force him to play a style unsuited to his skills and punished him for the slightest mistake.

CALGARY HERALD: Sam Bennett joins T.J. Brodie, Lance Bouma, Joe Colborne and Ladislav Smid on the Flames’ growing list of injured players.

OTTAWA SUN: The Senators need more production from of Bobby Ryan, Curtis Lazar, Milan Michalek and Mika Zibanejad.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Is it me, or is this starting to sound exactly like the same complaint from last season?
