At the Rink: Lightning at Flames

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames vow not to rest on their laurels following a successful 4-2-0 road trip when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning at Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday in the first of five straight home games.

After dropping their home opener, the Flames took eight of a possible 12 points on an 11-day road trip.

"You've got to make it count when you have a good, successful trip like we did," captain Mark Giordanosaid. "We got the points we wanted out of the trip. You have to make it count. What I mean by saying that is we have to have a successful homestand here. We have to get points in a lot of these games. We can put ourselves in a pretty good spot here early in the year."

At the Rink: Rangers at Devils

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils defenseman Adam Larsson will make his season debut Tuesday against the rival New York Rangers at Prudential Center.

Devils coach Peter DeBoer confirmed the decision to give Larsson his first opportunity of the season prior to puck drop. Larsson will replace Eric Gelinas in the lineup.

"I think it really was a tough decision not to play him coming out of training camp," DeBoer said. "But we had some great camps by a lot of young defensemen and then we got off to the start winning three in a row so it's tough to make lineup changes. But some things have changed and he's going to get an opportunity [Tuesday], and he's got to make the most of it."

Fast starts not uncommon for Sharks forward Marleau

San Jose Sharks left wing Patrick Marleau is off to another strong start. This is not a surprise.

Marleau enters the Sharks' game Tuesday at the Boston Bruins with four goals and three assists for seven points in six games. Two of his goals and three of his points have come on the power play.

It's his most productive first six games of the season since last season, when he had six goals and three assists in the first six. That was his best start since, you guessed it, the season before, when he shot out of the lockout with nine goals and five assists in the first six games.

"There is no 'Wow, look what he's doing' factor because that's what we expect from him day in and day out," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "He showed up in camp in real good condition, like he always does. His mindset was very good, very determined. He's playing with a couple good players right now that help him out. It's not a surprise to anyone in the locker room that he's playing the way he is."

Marleau has been playing with Logan Couture and Matt Nieto, neither of whom are off to a hot start. Couture has one goal and three assists; Nieto has one goal and two assists, but he hasn't had a point in the past three games.

Fantasy Spin: Red Wings' Datsyuk returns to lineup

Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk will make his season debut Tuesday at the Montreal Canadiens after missing four weeks with a separated shoulder. Fantasy owners know their lineups will get a boost from the slick-skating Russian, who is averaging just under a point per game over 12 seasons in the NHL, but how Datsyuk's teammates statistics will be affected is something to keep an eye on.

Datsyuk practiced at left wing Tuesday with Henrik Zetterberg at center, though Datsyuk said they could switch at times during the game.

At the Rink: Panthers at Avalanche

DENVER -- Florida Panthers coach Gerard Gallant is aware the Colorado Avalanche have struggled to score goals this season -- nine in six games -- and is hopeful they won't break out Tuesday at Pepsi Center.

"They haven't scored a lot but they have the potential to score a lot of goals," Gallant said after an optional morning skate. "With their talent and the skill over there it's just a matter of time, so hopefully it's not [Tuesday]."

The Panthers are in a similar situation with five goals in five games, but they've been getting strong goaltending from Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya while playing solid team defense. Montoya made 26 saves Saturday when the Panthers began a three-game trip with a 2-1 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals. Luongo, who will play Tuesday, has turned aside 48 of 49 shots in his past two starts.

"Hopefully we'll keep playing our game and shut them down and play a real solid game," Gallant said. "They're a dangerous team like Washington is a dangerous team. We have to make sure we're playing our game. We're working hard, we're having good gaps, not giving odd-man rushes. I think if we keep playing that way we'll have a chance to win every night."

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
