The Flames went into Vegas tonight and once again dropped the first goal of the game. They weren’t without their life and energy, and two goals from Rasmus Andersson and Johnny Gaudreau in the span of just about 30 seconds early in the second period had the Flames reclaiming the lead and looking like they had some life back. The bad news, of course, is that this didn’t exactly hold. The

It wouldn’t be easy for the LA Kings to move Jonathan Quick Lisa Dillman and Josh Cooper of The Athletic: Through two games Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has a 7.17 goals-against average and a .750 save percentage.

A quick mix of the things we gleaned from the week of hockey, serious and less so, and rolling four lines deep. As you judge the quality of the content, kindly remember we accepted the league minimum just to join a contender. 1. Time for some conditional love. Granted we’re only 10 days into this wild ride, but two startling early-season developments have brought a couple of nifty trade conditions top of mind. These are crafty ways to mitigate the resulting damage from the ol’ adage that whoever gets the best player wins the trade. Just as Pierre Dorion put himself in a sticky situation when he gave up an unprotected first-round draft pick to Colorado in the Matt Duchene trade, the Ottawa GM made certain to acquire an unprotected first-rounder from Doug Wilson in last fall’s

You feel them coming. You tal
