Lamplighters: Bobby Ryan Gets His First Goal as an Ottawa Senator

Wednesday featured only three games in the NHL, but the Blackhawks-Blues tilt was a doozy which came down to our No. 1 goal of the night.

1. Steen Finishes off the 'Hawks in St. Louis

The Hawks were a little too gung-ho in the Blues' end and ended up give up a three-on-one in the waning moments of their battle in St. Louis. Alexander Steen took care of the rest, rifling this one through the pads of a disgruntled Corey Crawford. Final score? Blues, 3, Hawks 2. The Blues remain undefeated and atop the Central division at 3-0 (tied with Colorado).

2. Bobby Ryan's First of the Season:

Bobby Ryan netted his first marker as an Ottawa Senator with this nice wrister through a screen that catches the roof. Ryan also scored the first of his 148 career NHL goals against L.A.

3. A Rocket By Subban Sparks the Habs.

P.K. Subban makes this one-timer off a nice feed from Max Pacioretty look easy, but this laser nearly ripped a hole in the twine. Sadly, for Les Canadiens, it wasn't enough to get them over the hump against the undefeated Flames. Yes, that's right, I said undefeated Flames. They are 2-0-2 and tied with Vancouver and San Jose atop the Pacific with six points.
