NHL Morning Coffee Headlines – November 5, 2016
Game recaps, no 2017 NHL game on Parliament Hill and more in your NHL morning coffee headlines.
NHL.COM: Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Scott Hartnell and Josh Anderson all scored twice as the Columbus Blue Jackets humiliated the Montreal Canadiens 10-0, handing the Habs their first regulation loss of the season. Canadiens backup goalie Al Montoya was in goal for the entire game.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: This was an embarrassing loss for the Canadiens. The only person to feel sorry for is Montoya, who was left hung out to dry by his coach and his teammates. They should be ashamed of themselves. You can also bet Carey Price wouldn’t have been left in that situation.
Rickard Rakell scored twice to help the Anaheim Ducks thump the Arizona Coyotes 5-1.
Brandon Tanev scored the first two goals of his NHL career as the Winnipeg Jets rallied to down the Detroit Red Wings 5-3.
PHILLY.COM: Defenseman Michael Del Zotto will return to the Philadelphia Flyers lineup after missing the opening three weeks of this season to injury.
THE DENVER POST: The Colorado Avalanche placed center John Mitchell.
NBC SPORTS: Free-agent forward Sean Bergenheim is returning to Europe, signing with Sweden’s Frolunda HC.
OTTAWA SUN: The Canadian government rejected the idea of staging an outdoor game on Parliament Hill in 2017, citing “the need for uninterrupted operations of parliamentary business, public access and security.”
