NHL.COM: Artemi Panarin’s overtime goal lifted the Chicago Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues, giving the Hawks their seventh straight win. 

After the Columbus Blue Jackets blew a two-goal lead, Zach Werenski scored in overtime to give them a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks. Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky was sidelined by a lower-body injury. 

Mike Condon made 31 saves while Bobby Ryan scored the winner in a shootout to give the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres skated without center Ryan O’Reilly with an undisclosed injury, but Evander Kane returned to the lineup after missing 11 games with cracked ribs. 

The Vancouver Canucks demoted forward Jake Virtanen to their AHL affiliate in Utica, NY. 

NORTHJERSEY.COM: After being claimed off waivers weeks ago from the New York Islanders, winger P.A. Parenteau is fitting in well with the New Jersey Devils. 

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Given the Isles scoring issues early in this season, one wonders if general manager Garth Snow regrets putting Parenteau on waivers. 

TORONTO SUN: Despite a power outage at the ACC yesterday, the Maple Leafs practice continued with skating drills. 

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This practice came a day after the Leafs were thumped 7-0 by the Los Angeles Kings. Leafs coach Mike Babcock evidently wanted to ensure his players got the message that their performance in that game was unacceptable. 


  1. Why Snow would sign PA then waive him, I don’t know. Head scratching move if there ever was one.

    • Has to be something more there. Snow is not an incompetent GM and the whole situation seems really suspect to me.

      • Pa got shown the door in Mtl and col and nobody wanted him at the deadline and then he gets shown the door from the islanders! He doesn’t bring a whole lot to the table but could be something behind the scenes too

      • What was Okposso issue he was also a pass by the Islanders to start the season? Parenteau was hurt at the deadline was likely a pretty big reason he wasn’t traded, and has what 25 goals and 47 points over his past 82 games? For 1.25 mill. I doubt the Devils see him as an issue.
