The two goals gave Sedin a career total of 150.

Booth tied for second among all scorers with four points (three goals, one assist) in two games. He opened the season by recording one goal and one assist in a 6-4 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Oct 10. Two nights later, Booth scored two goals, including the overtime winner as the Panthers defeated the Atlanta Thrashers, 3-2.

Brodeur posted a 2-0-0 record with a 0.97 goals-against average and .951 save percentage as the Devils opened the season with a pair of 2-1 triumphs. He stopped 25 shots in the Devils’ home opener, a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders Oct. 10. The next night, he made 14 saves in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The victories improved Brodeur’s career total to 540, pulling him within 11 of matching Patrick Roy’s NHL record.
Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
