Player Notes

  • Nick Bonino opens scoring in Montreal
    Nick Bonino picked off an Alexei Emelin pass and finished a Derek Dorsett dish to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead in Montreal on Thursday night.

    Advice: Emelin was trying to go up the middle with an outlet pass and Bonino just stepped right in and took it. It was a great display of awareness of Bonino's part. He also chipped in by winning 45% of his draws over 17 minutes of ice time, including nearly three minutes of special teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Galchenyuk continues to score
    Alex Galchenyuk tipped in his fourth goal of the season past Ryan Miller on Thursday night.

    Advice: Galchenyuk redirected a slapper from PK Subban through his legs and past Miller to cut the Canucks' lead to 3-2 midway through the third. It was quite a display of hand-eye coordination. The 20 year old now has eight points in 11 games this season, and chipped in elsewhere by winning 67% of his faceoffs while skating 17:31. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Duchene adds two assists to Avs' 5-0 win
    Matt Duchene helped get the party started just 2:34 into Colorado's 5-0 win over the Islanders on Thursday night.

    Advice: Off a dump-in, Duchene beat Isles defender Calvin de Haan to the puck, whirled around and perfectly set up Cody McLeod, of all people, who had beaten Brian Stait. All this just a few shifts into the game. Sometimes you create your own luck by out working the opponent. Duchene also won 71% of his faceoffs in his 15:19 of ice time. Rotoworld.com

  • Nathan MacKinnon finally scores, twice
    Nathan MacKinnon got off the schneid Thursday night, scoring his first two goals of the season in Colorado's 5-0 win over the Islanders.

    Advice: MacKinnon scored Colorado's lone power play tally as well, and boy was it a beauty. Off a scramble in front of the Islanders net, Erik Johnson slipped him the puck and Mac calmly backed off the crease, stick-handled twice while waiting Johnson to stack the pads, and then popped the water bottle forehand far side. The kid's gonna be alright. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Brodziak nets two goals in third period
    Kyle Brodziak's first two goals of the season were humungous on Thursday night, as they erased a two-goal third-period deficit for the Wild and allowed them to emerge 3-2 in overtime against San Jose.

    Advice: Brodziak managed eight goals in 81 games last season, so scoring a pair in just over five minutes was quite a big deal. Brodziak helped the Wild come within two points of the Central Division leading Nashville Predators. Rotoworld.com
