2-0 -0 10 3/19
(1.000) For one game at least, the Tampa Bay Lightning didn't look like the team that finished 12th in the Eastern Conference last season. The Bolts got three points out of Steven Stamkos, whose 51 goals were tied for the league lead last year with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, and solid goaltending from Mike Smith (27 saves on 30 shots).

(.750) The Sharks started the season by participating in the Compuware NHL Premiere Series against the Blue Jackets. The overseas trip wound up being worthwhile for San Jose, as the club picked up three of a possible four points before returning to the states.

(.500) Dustin Brown helped the Kings pick up two of the possible four points that were on the table for Los Angeles in Week 1. The 25-year-old picked up a point in each match, including an assist on L.A.'s only regulation goal in Saturday night's 2-1 shootout win over Vancouver.

(.500) The Coyotes are going to have a tough time duplicating the success they had last season if they keep giving the opposition over 35 chances to score a night just like they did in their first two games of the year. Ilya Bryzgalov bailed the club out in the opener, turning away 40 of the 42 shots he faced in a 5-2 win in Prague over Boston.

(.500) Mike Cammalleri made sure Montreal took home some points in Week 1. After dropping their opener to the Maple Leafs, the Habs were in jeopardy of starting the season off with two straight losses, but the 28-year-old winger combined with Scott Gomez to score two late goals in the last three minutes against Pittsburgh to net Montreal a 3-2 win over the high-powered Pens.

(.500) Atlanta's only win of the week was a scary one. Two minutes into the opener Friday night against Washington, goaltender Ondrej Pavelec mysteriously collapsed to the ice during a stoppage of play.

(.500) As hard as he tried last Saturday, Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo couldn't steal his team a win from the Kings. The veteran backstop turned away 31 of the 32 shots he faced in regulation and overtime, but the Kings had his number in the shootout, converting both of their breakaway chances to net LA the 2-1 win.

(.500) The Islanders should be proud of their effort in Week 1, even though the team didn't skate away with a win in its only game. A little over three minutes into the contest against Dallas, New York lost their scoring leader John Tavares when he left the game with an apparent concussion. The Isles forced overtime by rallying back from a two-goal deficit against the Stars, only to lose 5-4 on a Mike Ribeiro shootout goal.

(.250) After winning their last game of the 2009-10 season to bring Lord Stanley back to Chicago after 49 years, the Blackhawks failed to pick up a win in two tries in Week 1 of their title defending season.

(.250) Surprisingly, the New Jersey Devils and Marty Brodeur weren't their solid selves in Week 1. The team only picked up one point in their first two games of the season, giving up 11 goals in their two losses (one regulation, one overtime) on 57 shots, with Brodeur being on the hook for nine of the red-lighters.

(.000) The Anaheim Ducks didn't look so mighty in their first two games of the season. A cold-as-ice offense and power play left the Ducks winless coming into Week 2. Anaheim only managed one goal on 58 shots in their first two games of the year, and zero tallies in four tries with the extra attacker.

0-2 -0 4 16/30
(.000) Tomas Vokoun and the Panthers weren't too happy about the officiating or the outcome of their one and only game in Week 1. Florida lost their season opener against Edmonton in controversial fashion when the deciding tally by Shawn Horcoff was ruled a goal, even though it looked like it was directed into the net by his skate.
