Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty will miss three weeks with a left hamstring strain, the team announced following its 5-3 win Thursday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"It's bad luck, but it could have been a lot worse," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "We're going to take the time to make sure [Pacioretty] gets better. But in the meantime it's not such bad news. It could have been a lot worse."

DALLAS -- The game Thursday between the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars features two of the NHL's top rookies this season in Sharks left wing Tomas Hertl, who leads the League with seven goals, and Dallas right wing Alex Chiasson, who is tied for second on the Stars with five points.

Each of these young skaters is pleased with his early success but is trying to take that in stride and remain focused on the bigger picture -- helping his team win games.

"I feel it's very good and I'm very happy with this year and that the team has done very well," the 19-year-old Hertl said.

He tied a franchise record with four goals in a game against the New York Rangers on Oct. 8, and became the fourth-youngest player in NHL history to score four in a game.


San Jose Sharks off to another fast start

There's a feeling of déjà vu surrounding the San Jose Sharks.

It was nine months ago that the team burst out of the gates with a 7-0-0 start. When they take the ice against the Dallas Stars on Thursday, they have a chance to match that perfect start.

However, there's a lot of differences between this season's Sharks team and last season's.

The biggest is their forward depth. A season ago the Sharks' top line featured Joe Thornton centering Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski, with a second line of Logan Couture between Ryane Clowe and Marty Havlat.

This season, though, two significant moves -- one last season, one this summer -- are paying off with increased skill, speed and depth up front.

Panthers' Thomas makes return against Bruins

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Tim Thomas declined to talk about his first meeting against his former team, the Boston Bruins, until after his first time playing against them Thursday, but it remained the topic of conversation at BB&T Center at the morning skate.

Thomas, who hasn't played since leaving a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Oct. 8 because of a groin injury, will make his return to the lineup Thursday when the Florida Panthers face the team he led to the Stanley Cup title in 2011.

The announcement that Thomas would play against Boston first was made on the Panthers' Twitter account Wednesday, and coach Kevin Dineen confirmed it after his team's morning skate.

Toronto Maple Leafs wing James van Riemsdyk is dealing with back spasms and will not play Thursday against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes. Toronto coach Randy Carlyle revealed that van Riemsdyk will miss his second straight game and remains "day-to-day."

"He did skate [Wednesday], and we felt that was an improvement," Carlyle said. "But he's kind of plateaued or flattened out here, and we're not going to put him on the ice in a situation where we think we're going to possibly have him have any setback."

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
