It was a quiet night in terms of games, but it doesn’t make it any less newsworthy. Here are the NHL scores from last night’s games.
Ottawa Senators – 6, Detroit Red Wings – 1
Detroit Goalscorer: Todd Bertuzzi
Three Stars: 1 – Jason Spezza, 2 – Kyle Turris, 3 – Bobby Ryan
Daniel Alfredsson faced his former team for the first time after leaving for Detroit in the offseason, but it was the Senators who scored early and often at Joe Louis Arena. The Senators had a 3-0 lead through 14 minutes, and they didn’t let up in winning for the third time in their last four games.
It was Ryan’s first multi-goal game as a Senator, while it was the second of the season for Spezza, who had a hat-trick against Phoenix on Oct. 15.
Boston Bruins – 5, Buffalo Sabres – 2
Three Stars: 1 – Milan Lucic, 2 – Nikita Zadorov, 3 – Torey Krug
A three-point night from Lucic led the Bruins to victory over the Sabres, despite Buffalo’s Nikita Zadorov scoring his first NHL goal late in the second period.
However, Boston’s third straight win was overshadowed by Sabres forward John Scott, who caught Boston’s Loui Eriksson with a blindside elbow to the head early in the third period. Scott received a charging major and a match penalty for the shot, and Brendan Shanahan will likely summon him to New York City for supplementary discipline.
