Spencer Knight stopped 29-of-31 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. This was one of the biggest games of the young season -- both teams entered with nine wins -- and Knight stepped up in fine fashion to more/less shut down the Carolina offense. He kept the crease clean through the whole of the first period while his offensive friends built up a 4-0 lead for the Panthers. The second period would see both Jesper Fast and Vincent Trocheck score on Knight, but the netminder would shake those goals off to turn in a scoreless effort the rest of the way out. This start marked a nice rebound effort by Knight, who was dinged for four goals by Washington when he last took the ice. Knight has now allowed two or fewer goals in three of five starts. Next up on the schedule following this strong victory, a Monday date with the New York Rangers.

Igor Shesterkin made 31 saves during Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Calgary Flames. Shesterkin had a busy night in this matchup. He allowed six goals on 37 shots to end his game with a save percentage of .838. His team was unable to help him whatsoever on the offensive front, so he exits this game with a record that now sits at 5-2-2.
