The Daily: Red Wings Not the Only Ones Still Perfect After Two Games



Moritz Seider, Detroit Red Wings

Some surprises and yet some teams are exactly where they should be. The Detroit Red Wings sit pretty at 2-0 after a 5-2 victory over New Jersey Saturday night. Many teams in the National Hockey Now network are enjoying an early season pair of wins.

The Pittsburgh Penguins made it two in a row with a 6-2 victory over Tampa Bay. Sidney Crosby doesn’t look like he’s lost a step as the Penguins beat the three straight Eastern Conference champions in convincing fashion.

The surprising Philadelphia Flyers are also 2-0 after rallying to beat Vancouver 3-2. For some of the hand wringing when John Tortorella was hired, the fiery coach has the Flyers off to a strong start.

In a game where the outcome wasn’t as surprising, the Boston Bruins beat Arizona 6-3 and improved to 2-0. Nick Foligno, waived nearly a week ago, found the back of the net as the Bruins sit with the Red Wings at the top of the division.

The Florida Panthers and Vegas Golden Knights round out the rest of the undefeated in the network. The former enjoying a strong performance from Spencer Knight. The latter seeking their third win in a row.
