Hockey Is Back!

Three pre-season games to talk about from last night. Carolina rolled over Washington, 6-0. Cory Stillman had a nice debut, getting a goal and two assists. Zigomantis, Staal, Cullen, Williams and Forbes also scored for the Canes. Rookie Cam Ward got the shutout. Kolzig, Cassels and Zubrus all sat out for Washington, while Cole, Gerber, Kaberle and Whitney sat out for Carolina.

The Coyotes beat the Wild, 3-2. Morris, Doan and Nagy scored for Phoenix, while Dupuis and Olvecky scored for the Wild. Boucher injured his groin during the game, and will miss at least the next two pre-season games.

Edmonton defeated Calgary in a shoot out. Lombardi scored for Calgary, while Stoll scored for Edmonton. Ryan Smyth scored in the shootout to get Edmonton the win. Calgary did keep out Iginla, Kiprusof, Amonte, and Hamrlik, while Edmonton kept out Peca and Jason Smith.
