Daily Cupcakes - November 28th, 2011

Let's start with a recap of the Avs win over the Oilers.

Stefan Elliott scored his first NHL goal, Semyon Varlamov had 31 saves and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Saturday night.

Paul Stastny, Shane O'Brien, Jan Heda and Jay McClement had a goal each, and Ryan O'Reilly, Milan Hejduk and Chuck Kobasew had two assists apiece as the Avalanche snapped a two-game home skid.

 

The Dallas Stars owner spoke to the players shortly before being announced.

Only two hours before Tom Gaglardi was to be officially introduced as the new owner of the Dallas Stars this week, he walked into the team’s dressing room and spoke for the first time to the players themselves.

His message was simple, but it was one the Stars had waited more than two years to hear.

"The uncertainty’s over," Gaglardi told them. "I’m here and you’ll get my full support."

 

NHL.com has an article about Gabriel Landeskog.


"Right from the start of camp, he seemed very comfortable playing against guys who have played in the NHL and he's definitely proved that in these first [23] games," Daniel Winnik, Landeskog's linemate, told NHL.com.

The 6-foot-1, 204-pound wing may not be a flashy playmaker but he registered 21 NHL games before he celebrated his 19th birthday Wednesday. In that span he notched 10 points (five goals) and he currently leads the Avalanche in shots (77) and in hits (55). According to teammates, he approaches the game with a physicality and hockey-sense that boast a maturity beyond his years.

"He's a very smart player, gifted offensively and defensively," Winnik said. "He's just a really good all-around player. And I think a lot of that has to do with his hockey smarts."
