Gustav Nyquist, RW, Detroit Red Wings: The Red Wings got all their scoring out of the way in a hurry last night against the defending champion Kings. Detroit went on a tear in the first period, rattling off four straight goals for a 4-0 advantage after one.
Nyquist posted a pair of goals with an assist, and Pavel Datsyuk also managed to tally the same statistical line. Goalie Jimmy Howard anchored the defense with 28 saves on 30 shots in the eventual 5-2 victory. The win brings the Red Wings to 6-2-2 on the year so far.
Corey Perry, RW, Anaheim Ducks: Let’s keep the RW conversations rolling this morning and check out Perry. He tallied a goal and an assist in last night’s 2-1 overtime victory over the Stars, posting the helper on the game-winner in the extra period. Nate Thompson scored on that one. Before Perry’s second-period score, the Ducks had been suffering through a goal drought that lasted 105:13.
Goalie Frederik Andersen had 21 saves on 22 shots.
Johnny Gaudreau, LW, Calgary Flames: The youngsters in the Flames’ lineup took center stage last night in a big 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators at Scotiabank Saddledome yesterday. Gaudreau had a goal and an assist, and Sean Monahan added a score and a helper as well in the victory.
The Flames were down a few notable players for this one, missing Mikael Backlund, Matt Stajan and Joe Colborne.
