NHL weekend best bets: Red Wings to best Canadiens in season opener - The Score

I think Perron, Copp, Dylan Larkin, Lucas Raymond, and Co. are going to cause the Canadiens’ inexperienced defense a lot of problems.

It’s this guy’s fault/credit (I dunno, I wrote this before the game started)

Greene retires from NHL, signs one-day contract with Devils - NHL

The defenseman, who turns 40 on Oct. 30, had 264 points (52 goals, 212 assists) in 1,057 games for the Devils and New York Islanders, and 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 90 Stanley Cup Playoff games, when he was plus-3. The native of Trenton, Michigan, will be honored by the Devils when he and his family participate in the ceremonial puck drop before the home opener against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

So no hurry to get settled in by 7 tomorrow.
