Alexander Galchenyuk celebrates his goal against the Edmonton Oilers.

MONTREAL GAZETTE/EDMONTON JOURNAL:  Youngsters Brendan Gallagher and Alexander Galchenyuk powered the Canadiens to a 4-1 victory over the struggling Oilers. P.K. Subban picked up three assists for the Habs.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: A strong bounce-back effort for the Canadiens, who fell 3-2 the night before to the Calgary Flames. Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk played well in defeat, but it won’t be enough to calm anxious Oilers fans.

TORONTO STAR: Jonathan Bernier took another step toward securing the starting goalie role for the Maple Leafs, backstopping them to a 4-0 victory over the Nashville Predators. There was a scary moment in the game when Cody Franson cut his nose after being pushed into a stanchion by Predators forward Mike Fisher, but he reportedly escaped serious injury. Fisher received five minutes for boarding and a game misconduct.

VANCOUVER PROVINCE: The San Jose Sharks pushed their season-opening record to 4-0-0 with a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

WINNIPEG SUN: A lowly 22.2% percentage in the faceoff circle contributed to the Jets 2-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild, giving the latter their first win of the season.

CALGARY SUN: Flames forward Sven Baertschi, who was scolded by team president of hockey ops Brian Burke for his poor preseason play, was singled out for praise by coach Bob Hartley for his strong play in their 3-2 win on Wednesday over the Montreal Canadiens.

OTTAWA CITIZEN: The Senators have spent too much time this season killing penalties.
