NHL record is 19... RT @reporterchris Steven Stamkos has 12 shots on goal (and potentially counting)
Hedman turned into such a beast. Sweden could have used him at the Olympics.
The Panthers really need a Gin Blossoms concert.
My over/under for #FlaPanthers #Sens attendance tonight is 6,500. Right now we're about 1/10th of the way there.

Habs have never won more than four in a row to start a season? That seems unpossible.
"That was like an #NHL team playing a peewee team," #Sabres coach Ted Nolan on his team's 5-1 loss to #NHLDucks. BUF was outshot by 32.

The Sabres have been outshot by a combined margin of 131-57 in their first three games.

The Sabres look worse than last year.
AHL suspends Trevor Gillies 12 games.
.@cathalkelly: "After three games, we’ve proved at least one thing – that attempting to judge the Leafs after three games is impossible."

Good lord can someone let @mc79hockey tweet about hockey again.
Much better game from Avs, and they beat Boston with a buzzer beater. Face Leafs tomorrow in what should be fun game to watch.
Hard to believe, but the #avs are seven periods into the season and still looking for their first goal.

Jim Balsillie has been ordered by the judge to join the Gin Blossoms. This is reminiscent of the Seinfeld butler case.
The Gin Blossoms are now being sued by Jerry Moyes. Redfield T. Baum will hear the case. At issue is a half eaten bagel in the staff lounge
The Gin Blossoms are now part owners of the Coyotes.
They'll also be allowed to sleep in the arena whenever necessary.
Rumour has it the Gin Blossoms will get an ownership stake for doing the concert.
"Arizona Coyotes announce today that rock band Gin Blossoms will play a post-game concert for all fans in attendance versus the Panthers."
Looks like Gardiner-Rielly got bulk of Leafs offensive zone starts as a pair. Doesn't seem to allow for use of puck carrying strengths.
Avalanche are taking warmups without pucks. Practice like you play.

My weekly look at some trends I'm seeing around the NHL bit.ly/1qTfFLr
Stuart Percy has a 40% zone start and the best possession numbers on the Leafs blueline. And a point a game. So he's doing okay.
ICYMI, @mirtle joined @MackoAndCauz with @mcauz56 to discuss Jake Gardiner's benching and more. Listen here: bit.ly/1qT7Y7Y

Tyler Bozak's shooting percentage over time: 12.5%, 16.5%, 19.7%, 21.1%. So far this year: 50%. I'm not sure where this is heading.

Will be on @TSN1050Radio with @mcauz56 here in a minute or two talking last night's romp by the Leafs.
Guessing not long before Budaj gets chance in Winnipeg.
Other takeaway from game: Anthony Duclair looks darn good. How was he a third rounder?
James Reimer says he's fine. Protocol dictated that he come out of the game.
Retweeted by James Mirtle
Leafs get their first win. Huge one. Had to take some pressure off.
Such a shame about Reimer's head injuries. Hopefully not something that keeps dogging his career.
The Lebda game. RT @LeafsPR The last time @MapleLeafs scored 5 goals in a period was Jan. 7, 2011 at Atlanta (9-3 win) #TMLTalk
David Clarkson scores. Pro-rated that makes him a 30-goal scorer this year. Money well spent.
Retweeted by James Mirtle
Clarkson scores. Everybody gets a goal night.
What's wrong with the Leafs top line... hrmmmm. 5-2 Leafs
That should and does count. Rangers get one back. 4-2 Leafs
JVR scores on breakaway. 4-1 Leafs. Lundqvist kind of leaky there.
Kessel no longer out of shape. Or something.
¿ RT @jonasTSN1050 Roman Polak plays nearly eight minutes in the first to lead the Leafs.
Well that was Polak's man. Nash ties things up.
Well the Leafs power play looks okay.
Welcome back Cody Franson. Leafs make it 1-0 on power play as he hammers that in.
Viktor Loov scored OT winner for Marlies today in the new 3-on-3 format. His second goal of the game too.
Ruh roh. RT @jonasTSN1050 Leafs scratch Jake Gardiner.
