Noteable Noteables:

  • The San Jose Sharks will look to bounce back from their first regulation loss of the 2014-15 season, which came at the hands of the New York Rangers on Sunday. Tonight they face the Boston Bruins who are coming off a 4-0 shutout win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. [NHL.com]
  • Adam Larsson, the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, will make his season debut for the New Jersey Devils, after being a healthy scratch for the first five games. Larsson has been slow to develop, but hasn’t been given a lot of ice time under head coach PeteDeBoer; Larsson appeared in 26 games last season, scoring one goal and three points. Then again, can you really blame DeBoer? Larsson’s last goal was November 16th, 2013 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was his first in nearly two years. [NHL.com]
  • The New York Islanders suffered their first loss of the season, 4-1 on the road against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Look for John Tavares to bounce back against the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight, a team he has scored 8 goals and 19 points against in 11 career games. [NHL.com]
  • The Detroit Red Wings and the Montreal Canadiens meet for their first of four match-ups this season. Many were expecting the Red Wings to finally take a step back this season, but through five games they are 3-1-1 and third in the Atlantic Division with 7 points. Montreal currently leads the division with a 5-1-0 record and 10 points. Pavel Datsyuk will make his season debut tonight for Detroit. [NHL.com]
  • The Nashville Predators have earned at least one point in each of their five games to start the 2014-15 season. Tonight they run into the Arizona Coyotes, who are in a bit of a rough spot to start the season. Arizona has allowed 18 goals in the last four games, six of which came against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. [NHL.com]
  • Jeff Skinner will make his season debut for the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, after missing the first four games due to effects from a concussion. The Hurricanes have been absolutely decimated by injuries to start the season, so Skinner is a welcome addition to the lineup. [NHL.com]
  • The Chicago Blackhawks were happy to have Kris Versteeg back in the lineup, but then got the news that goaltender Corey Crawford is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Crawford started the Blackhawks first four games, going 3-0-1. Backup goaltender Antti Raanta will make his season debut tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. [NHL.com]
  • The Vancouver Canucks remain unbeaten on the road (2-0-0) and the Dallas Stars remain win-less at home (0-0-2), making for an interesting match-up tonight in Dallas. [NHL.com]
  • The Colorado Avalanche got good news to start the week: Semyon Varlamov is expected to return to the lineup on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks. Backup Reto Berra is also back and expected to get the start tonight against the Florida Panthers. [NHL.com]
  • The Calgary Flames return home after a surprisingly successful road trip that saw them go 4-2-0. The Tampa Bay Lightning will be looking to make up for their 3-2 loss to the previously win-less Edmonton Oilers last night. [NHL.com]
