There’s just one NHL game on the schedule tonight, but that’s okay since we’ve got plenty to talk about from last night’s stuffed slate of matchups. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the notable players in the headlines today.

Adam Henrique, C, New Jersey Devils: The Devils came into this new season stressing the importance of scoring, and they certainly got off to a good start yesterday against the Flyers. Jersey took the game 6-4 on the strength of Henrique’s goal and assist, as well as Michael Ryder’s two helpers and a score of his own. The game was tied at 4-4 as late as 7:13 in the third, when Dainius Zubrus scored the eventual game-winner. It spoiled a nice outing from the Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds, who had two goals and an assist.

Rick Nash, LW, New York Rangers: The defending conference champs got off to a good start in shaking off their Stanley Cup disappointment last night against a strong Blues team, getting a 3-2 win thanks to Rick Nash. He logged a pair of goals and an assist in the win, with Chris Kreider helping out on a score and assist of his own.
Nash posted the game-winner at 18:10 in the third, securing a victory for Henrik Lundqvist, who posted 23 saves in net.

Darcy Kuemper, G, Minnesota Wild: The Wild ran “wild” over the Avalanche last night, posting a convincing 5-0 win in their season opener. Kuemper logged the shutout, but he didn’t have to do a whole lot with his 16 saves.
Minnesota out-shot the Avs 17-5 in the first period, getting contributions from Zach Parise (goal; two assists) and Ryan Suter (goal; assist) along the way to a win.
