The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news around the NHL Monday-Friday.


- Vinny Prospal scored his second goal in three games for the Columbus Blue Jackets, who fell to the Vancouver Canucks 3-2.  Columbus is now the only 0-3-0 team in hockey.

- Washington and Tampa Bay played a playoff-like game last night that ended up in a wild 6-5 shootout win for the Capitals.  None of the big guns – Stamkos, St. Louis, Lecavalier, Ovechkin, Semin or Backstrom – scored in the affair, but the supporting guys made plenty of plays themselves.  Tomas Vokoun had an awful night in goal for Washington and called the game his worst “in five years.”   It looks like a goalie controversy could quickly arise for the Caps.

- Former Capitals’ goalie Semyon Varlamov helped the Avalanche shutout the Boston Bruins 1-0.

- Zach Parise scored two goals to help the Devils beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2.

- The New York Islanders picked up their first win of the year, a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.  At the suggestion of new Captain Mark Streit, the Isles all stayed on the ice for the “Three Stars of the Game” announcement and congratulated their teammates.  Smart team-building move by New York; expect this to be picked up around the league.

- Sidney Crosby could be cleared for contact today.

- The Boston Bruins signed Rich Peverley to a three-year contract extension.

- Tampa Bay defenseman Matthias Ohlund had both of his knees scoped this morning and is out four-to-six weeks.

- The Florida Panthers signed 2011 third-overall pick Jonathan Huberdeau to an entry-level deal.  Huberdeau has already been sent back to the QMJHL and is not eligible to play with the Panthers this season.

- Craig Rivet was the captain of the Buffalo Sabres a year ago, now he’s in the ECHL.

- Learn about the four basic power play setups over at Blue Seat Blogs.
