David Krejci, C, Boston Bruins: It’s good to be a Bruins fan this morning. Boston bagged a dominant 6-0 win over the Coyotes at TD Garden last night, marking goalie Tuukka Rask’s first shutout of the season. Rask had 24 saves overall.
David Krejci helped provide the offense with two goals. He’s got an eight-game scoring streak going right now, helping to get the Bruins to 4-3-1 after an 0-3-1 start.

Ryan Suter, D, Minnesota Wild: Suter found twine twice last night, helping the Wild to eke out a 4-3 victory over the Oilers at Xcel Energy Center.
Charlie Coyle put up the game-winning goal at the 9:26 mark in the third period, completing a comeback that saw the Wild down 3-2 early in the third.
Edmonton has now lost three in a row after their three-game win streak.
Jamie Benn, LW, Dallas Stars: Many Stars fans probably turned their televisions off at the end of the first period against the Ducks last night at American Airlines Center. Dallas was down 3-0 then, but managed to claw their way back for a 4-3 victory.
Benn put up three assists here, with Antoine Roussel posting the decisive goal with just 1:28 left in the game. They outshot the Ducks 17-2 in that final period.
The Ducks have come out of the gate flailing and hold just a 1-6-2 record thus far. Dallas is 7-2-0.
Jared McCann, C, Vancouver Canucks: The Canucks were able to halt history in its tracks last night, stopping the Canadiens’ season-opening victory streak at nine games thanks to a 5-1 win in Vancouver.
McCann put up two goals, while Derek Dorsett bagged a goal and an assist. Ryan Miller had 25 saves.
The Canadiens were just one win short of matching the longest season-opening win streak in league history.
