A Day in Hockey: 10/18
In the 6th edition of a day in hockey, there were 12 games. Here were the scores:
Sharks 3 - Islanders 2; Avalanche 0 - Capitals 3; Ducks 1 - Devils 2; Penguins 0 - Canadians 4; Panthers 3 - Lightning 4; Coyotes 4 - Senators 7; Stars 2 - Predators 1; Kings 3 - Wild 6; Flyers 4 - Blackhawks 7; Sabres 3 - Flames 4; Hurricanes 2 - Oilers 3; Blues 1 - Canucks 2.
Here are your 3 stars of the day:
3. T.J Oshie. Oshie's 2 goals helped power his Caps to a 3-0 shutout win over the Avs.
2. Taylor Hall. After being acquired by New Jersey in the 2nd biggest trade of the off-season, the left winger scored his first 2 goals with the Devils in a 2-1 win.
1. Al Montoya. The Canadians backup has had to come through big for his team while Carey Price has a flu. Montoya did just that when he recorded a 36 save shutout vs. the reigning champs.
And those were your 3 stars of the day
There was not as much news as you would expect coming out of a 12 game day but there was some. Here are the top headlines: Carey Price expects to play Thursday. Marian Hossa scores 500th career goal. G Jonathan Quick out indefinitely for Kings. First 2 overall picks Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine to faceoff on Wednesday.
And that will conclude the 6th edition of a day in hockey.
