SHATTERED GLASS

Four fans sitting along the boards at the Bruins game were treated for cuts when a hit by Boston forward Milan Lucic against Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mike Van Ryn shattered the glass and sent shards raining down on the seats Thursday night. Two fans were treated at the arena for cuts on their faces, and then taken to a hospital for further care. Two others had cuts on their hands from touching the broken glass, but they returned to watch the game after treatment, Bruins spokesman Matt Chmura said. All of the fans in the first two rows in the section near the goal line were moved to a luxury box to watch the rest of the game.

STREAKING

Ian Laperriere scored his first of the season and Joe Sakic, Paul Stastny and Cody McLeod added goals for Colorado in a 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. The Avalanche, the highest-scoring team in the NHL, have won four straight. Colorado’s line of Milan Hejduk, Stastny and Ryan Smyth has combined for 11 goals and 13 assists. The Oilers have dropped two straight following a 4-0 start. … Mikkel Boedker and Peter Mueller netted goals four minutes apart early in the third period, and the Phoenix Coyotes rallied to beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 Thursday night. The Coyotes, 2-0 at home for the first time since 2000, snapped a three-game losing streak. Brooks Laich scored the lone goal for the Capitals, who lost their second consecutive game.

SATURDAY SCHEDULE


All 30 teams will be in action Saturday during a 15-game slate. The NHL will take Sunday off following the busiest day of the season.

SPEAKING

“We did what we do. We kept working and working and kept putting pucks on the net. When you have guys like Sid (Crosby) and Geno (Malkin), you know it’s going to go in. It was a pretty intense and pretty good period for us.”— Pittsburgh forward Max Talbot, who scored one of the Penguins’ four third-period goals in a 4-1 comeback victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night.

Friday's Best NHL Bets
COVERS.com

Philadelphia at New Jersey

With a young group of talented group of gritty forwards, Philadelphia became a bit of a trendy Stanley Cup pick leading up to opening night. Looks like they have some serious work to do just to get out of the basement of the Atlantic Division.

Defense and goaltending are the main issues again this year. The club has allowed 17 goals over its last three games and Martin Biron is working on a 5.00 goals against average on the year. Antero Nittymaki isn’t much better at 3.80. Meanwhile the defense outside of Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn has been just as terrible, checking in with a combined -12 rating between the seven blueliners.

This is just the kind of team the Devils feast on. New Jersey’s offense ranks third in the league in shots on goal and its defense allows only 1.5 goals per game – good for second best in the show.

Pick: New Jersey (-170)


Los Angeles at St. Louis

The Blues have a nice mix of veteran savvy and youthful enthusiasm. Keith Tkachuk and Paul Kariya are both off to great starts and young guys like Brad Boyes, David Perron, and T.J. Oshie are riding shotgun along for the ride. So far, the Blues have it locked on cruise control, averaging 3.83 goals per game.

That’s helped over bettors cash in on each of St. Louis’ first six games and that trend seems unlikely to be snapped against the Kings. L.A. has a young defense and goaltender Jason LaBarbera is slumping along with a .889 save percentage.

Pick: Over (5.5)
