Bettman was talking to reporters before the Buffalo Sabres and the Tampa Bay Lightning play the first of their two games in the Swedish capital of Stockholm. "It was a great workforce-constructing for us", mentor Jared Bednar stated. The Bruins will report to Mannheim, Germany and play an exhibition game against Adler Mannheim at SAP Arena, while the Predators will report to Bern, Switzerland, and play an exhibition game against SC Bern at PostFinance Arena.

"I'm super excited, I have a big family in Finland, a lot of friends, so it's going to be fun to play in front of your friends and family", Donskoi said.

Coming off their dominant 9-four victory more than the Nashville Predators, the Avalanche are established to comprehensive their two-game homestand towards the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday prior to heading on the highway for six online games. The team struggled during its five-game losing streak, but they will be hoping that their nine-goal performance against the Predators is what the team needs to get its offense back on track.

Bednar also announced Saturday that defenseman Nikita Zadorov will miss time after he sustained a broken jaw in the second period on Thursday.

Colorado's nine goals are its most in a game since December 9, 2007 in a 9-5 win over the St. Louis Blues at Pepsi Center. The Blue Jackets with the win did avoid falling to the basement in the Metro and now have a 6-7-3 record. "He's able to extend plays and keep plays alive in the offensive zone with his puck protection", Bednar said about the forward who is being rewarded for his strong start to the season. Pierre-Luc Dubois has recorded 8 points over the last 10 games for Columbus.
