  • In his Inside the NHL column, Bucky Gleason talks head shots and John-Michael Liles’ availability.  The Sabres can blame their power play for last night’s loss.  Thomas Vanek didn’t play last night due to an abdominal injury.
  • That Andrei Markov fellow is pretty important isn’t he, writes Pat Hickey.
  • Mike Brodeur copied his relative Martin Brodeur, with a great NHL debut against the stiff Wild, writes Bruce Garrioch.  Garrioch has a ton of rumors in his weekly rumor column, including his report that the Flyers are trying to trade Jeff Carter and the Oilers are shopping Sheldon Souray, Lubomir Visnovsky and Shawn Horcoff.
  • It is hard to keep track of the Leafs’ identity, but whatever they were doing last night worked.  Jonas Gustavsson was the story last night.
