VEGAS FRANCHISE UNVEILS TEAM NICKNAME, LOGO
The Las Vegas expansion team announced that it will be known as the Vegas Golden Knights. The long-awaited name of the city's first major league sports franchise was revealed during a public ceremony outside T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday.
The team's colors --- steel grey, gold, red and black -- reflect the community and focus of the franchise. Drawing on themes associated with knights, the helmet in the team's logo includes a 'V' to represent Las Vegas. The secondary logos include swords that create the star from the iconic "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.

KARLSSON REACHES MILESTONE IN OTTAWA'S VICTORY
Down 3-2 early in the third period, Mark Stone (1-2-3) and Erik Karlsson (1-1-2) scored 2:24 apart to help the Ottawa Senators to their seventh victory in their past nine regular-season games against the Montreal Canadiens since Jan. 15, 2015 (MTL: 2-5-2).
* Karlsson eclipsed the 400-point milestone while appearing in his 498th NHL game (104-297-401). He became the 15th defenseman in NHL history to earn 400-plus points in 500 or fewer games, and the first to do so since Brian Leetch on Dec. 4, 1993 (380 GP).
* Stone equaled an NHL career high with his eighth three-point performance and first since March 12 against the Toronto Maple Leafs (1-2-3). Mike Hoffman (1-2-3) also equaled a career high with his seventh three-point game and second of the season (also Oct. 18 vs. ARI: 0-3-3).
HURRICANES, BLUES EXTEND WINNING STREAKS

Cam Ward (25 saves), who has been in net for all five games, owns a 1.00 goals-against average, .962 save percentage and one shutout in that span.
* Down 2-1 midway through the second period, the Blues scored three unanswered goals to push their winning streak to four games and end their road losing streak at four (0-4-0). Jori Lehtera (2-0-2) had his third career multi-goal performance and first since April 11, 2015 against the Minnesota Wild (2-0-2).
