The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick." No goal Arizona.

At the Rink: Panthers at Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Zero goals. Zero points. Zero impact.

Summing up Sam Gagner's first six games with the Arizona Coyotes is about as simple as that. 

Acquired in the offseason to add some skill and scoring to a forward unit in dire need in those departments, Gagner has yet to dent the score sheet. He has one fewer point than goalie Mike Smith, and his minus-4 rating is better than Lauri Korpikoski and David Moss among Arizona forwards.

Coach Dave Tippett will try something different Saturday against the Florida Panthers, moving Gagner to his more natural wing position alongside American Hockey League call-up Justin Hodgman and Martin Erat as the Coyotes look to snap an 0-2-1 skid that included a winless road trip.

At the Rink: Capitals at Flames

CALGARY -- A year ago to the day, the Calgary Flames were able to chase Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby in a 5-2 win at Scotiabank Saddledome. They're hoping to do it again Saturday.

Holtby is expected to start his second consecutive game as the Capitals look to avoid an Alberta sweep against the Calgary Flames.

"It's a long time ago," said Holtby, who is one win shy of passing Jose Theodore for seventh on the Capitals all-time win list. "You kind of have to look at every game singularly, not based on the team you're playing against. It had a lot less to do with Calgary and a lot more to do with us and myself. It's going to happen against any team, every team, throughout your career. You just have to put it behind you and move forward."

Holtby hasn't found much in the way of success against the Flames recently. He was pulled in Washington's 5-4 shootout win Oct 3, 2013, Calgary's first game of the season. In all, the 25-year-old had a 12.41 goals-against average and .760 save percentage in 29:10 of work against Calgary last season.

At the Rink: Rangers at Canadiens

MONTREAL -- It promises to be an emotional night at Bell Centre when the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens play Saturday for the first time since the Eastern Conference Final last season.

The Rangers won the series in six games before losing to the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Final.

"They definitely have a skilled group over there," Montreal forward Max Pacioretty said of the Rangers. "And they have a little bit different team than they had last year but they're a young team like us now, a lot of young guys who are trying to make a name for themselves in the League, and I think we have the same identity as them. We want to pay a fast game and obviously we weren't happy with the results last year and we have a lot to prove now."

Goaltender Carey Price will make his sixth straight start for the Canadiens. It will be the first time he has faced the Rangers since he was knocked out of the series with a knee injury sustained in Game 1 when New York forward Chris Kreider slid into him.

Pacioretty said the two points at stake Saturday are too crucial for the Canadiens to single out Kreider or any special attention.

At the Rink: Penguins at Predators

NASHVILLE -- Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling will return to Bridgestone Arena on Saturday to play the Nashville Predators for the first time since being traded in June.

"It feels a little weird to come here this early in the season," Hornqvist said. "I spent six great years here and a lot of things to take from Nashville. It was nice to see the boys [Friday] night, and it's going to be fun to play against them [Saturday]."

Hornqvist and Spaling were traded to Pittsburgh by Nashville in exchange for forward James Neal. Hornqvist and Spaling were key players for Nashville last season, so the trade took them by surprise.

At the Rink: Blackhawks at Blues

ST. LOUIS -- As much as players and coaches won't admit it, all is not forgotten from the Western Conference First Round series between the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks from the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Blackhawks won the series in six games after falling behind the Blues 2-0, and the teams have developed a healthy rivalry ripe with animosity.

They resume acquaintances Saturday when the Blues host the Blackhawks at Scottrade Center.

"I think there's a healthy respect," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "There's players on their team we don't like; they don't like guys on our team. But at the end of the day I think both teams play such an honest game. Every game is like a playoff game."

At the Rink: Lightning at Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Through the first couple weeks of the season the Minnesota Wild's power play has been somewhat oxymoronic.

The Wild enter play Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning 0-for-19 with the man-advantage and one of two teams in the NHL without a goal on the power play. 

"There's always ebbs and flows with your power play," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "At the beginning of the year it's always nice if you can get off to a good start; the players are putting more points on the board, they feel better about that and we have realistically at least one more win right now."

At the Rink: Red Wings at Flyers

PHILADELPHIA -- Shayne Gostisbehere certainly remembers the last meaningful game he played at Wells Fargo Center.

So do the Philadelphia Flyers fans who watched Gostisbehere score one goal, assist on two others and finish with a plus-7 rating as Union College won the NCAA title and Gostisbehere took home the trophy for Most Outstanding Player of the Frozen Four.

Gostisbehere will make his NHL debut Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings.

"It's the NHL and college; big steps there," Gostisbehere said after his first regular-season morning skate. "It's going to be a different game. First NHL game, I'm going to take it shift by shift there and calm my nerves."

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
