Jagr debuts with goal, assist as Caps thrash Devils

Posted: Sunday, October 07, 2001

WASHINGTON -- Jaromir Jagr had a goal and an assist in his Washington debut, and the Capitals tied a franchise record for most goals in a season opener in a 6-1 victory Saturday night over the New Jersey Devils.

The six Capitals goals were scored by six players, and four came on 12 shots in the second period. New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur was chased at the end of the period.

Flyers 3, Blue Jackets 3

PHILADELPHIA -- Justin Williams punched in a rebound from the right of the goal mouth with 4:14 left in regulation to help Philadelphia tie Columbus.

Kim Johnsson, obtained from the New York Rangers as part of the Eric Lindros trade, scored two goals for the Flyers.

Bruins 4, Thrashers 3, OT

BOSTON -- Bill Guerin scored 2:38 into overtime as Boston snapped a four-game losing streak to Atlanta.

The Thrashers won all four games from Boston last season. The Bruins' last home victory against Atlanta came nearly three years ago.

Sharks 0, Wild 0

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Backup goalie Dwayne Roloson stopped 36 shots as Minnesota played a scoreless tie with San Jose.

The Wild opened their second NHL season with a vintage exhibition of coach Jacques Lemaire's excitement-killing neutral-zone trap.

Sabres 3, Senators 2

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Stu Barnes scored with 57 seconds remaining to lift Buffalo over Ottawa, the Sabres' first win in the post Dominik Hasek era.

Tim Connolly brought Buffalo into a 2-2 tie, scoring on an odd-man rush 27 seconds into the third period.

Mighty Ducks 4, Penguins 2

PITTSBURGH -- Matt Cullen scored twice in a three-goal first period that carried Anaheim past the Mario Lemieux-less Pittsburgh Penguins.

Lemieux was forced to sit out because of a strained hip flexor. It was the first home game Lemieux missed since he resumed his career last December following a 3 1/2-year retirement.

Islanders 3, Panthers 0

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Chris Osgood made 31 saves, and New York stopped nine power plays to beat Florida.

Osgood's 31st career shutout was his first for the Islanders, who improved to 2-0 for the first time since 1987.

Maple Leafs 2, Canadiens 2

MONTREAL -- Yanic Perreault scored his second goal of the season, and Brian Savage had two assists as Montreal tied Toronto.

Perreault tied it with 10:44 left in the third, tying the game just 2:02 after Toronto's Nik Antropov gave the Maple Leafs a 2-1 lead.

Blues 2, Predators 2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mike Keane jammed a shot under goalie Tomas Vokoun's legs in the second period as St. Louis tied Nashville. It was the second tie in as many games for the Blues.

Flames 4, Blackhawks 0

CALGARY, Alberta -- Roman Turek made 23 saves to earn his second consecutive shutout as Calgary beat Chicago.

Turek has stopped 47 shots in 120 minutes this season.

Oilers 6, Coyotes 2

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Ryan Smyth scored twice and added an assist to lead Edmonton over Phoenix.

Daniel Cleary, Jason Smith, Ethan Moreau and Anson Carter also scored for Edmonton.

Red Wings 4, Canucks 1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Brendan Shanahan scored his fourth goal of the season, and Dominik Hasek made 29 saves as Detroit beat Vancouver.

Steve Yzerman had a goal and an assist, and Sergei Fedorov and Jiri Fischer also scored for the Red Wings, who improved to 2-0.

Vancouver defenseman Ed Jovanovski scored the only goal for the Canucks, who remained winless (0-2) and winless against Detroit in 18 straight games (0-14-4) dating to Feb. 6, 1997.

Vancouver outshot Detroit 30-19, but the Red Wings got the kind of steady goaltending they were hoping for when they acquired Hasek from Buffalo in a summer trade.
