The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news
around the NHL Monday-Friday.
- Montreal fired
former Rangers’ assistant coach Perry Pearn just an hour before the
Canadiens took on the Flyers last night. Pearn was clearly the scapegoat, but the Canadiens did win their second
game of the season as Max Pacioretty led them to a 5-1 victory.
- Former Rangers’ prospect Roman Horak scored his first goal
and added an assist in Calgary’s 4-2 victory over Colorado. Rene Bourque, who’s been the subject of
early-season trade rumors, scored twice for the Flames.
- Cory Schneider started in net for Vancouver instead of
Roberto Luongo and surrendered three goals as the Canucks were shutout. Luongo isn’t in danger of losing his starting
job just yet, but Schneider is a stud and if Luongo’s struggles continue
Vancouver may have no choice but to make a move.
- St. Louis No. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak has been awful in the
early going, and backup Brian
Elliot has been brilliant in the interim. Elliot was unable to seize the starting job in Ottawa, so it’s unlikely
that he’ll be able to keep this up for the Blues, but Halak may not see much
playing time in the near future.
- The New Jersey Devils are so thin at center that they’ve
moved Zach Parise to the middle, so the team claimed
Ryan Carter off waivers yesterday.
- The Ottawa Senators sent 2011 first-round pick Mika Zibanejad back
to Sweden. Florida will
keep 2010 first-round pick Erik Gudbranson.
- Eric Lindros has confirmed
that he will play in the 2012 Winter Classic alumni game for the
- It sounds like Edmonton will
be getting a new arena.
- Here’s Mike Modano trying
out an interesting Halloween costume.
- Check out Jonas Hiller’s awesome
goalie mask for Movember.
- There are 11 games on the schedule
tonight. Of course we’ll all be
watching the Rangers’ home-opener, but Montreal @ Boston will also be on the
NHL Network at 7:00 p.m. ET.
