2014-15 NHL Season Begins Wednesday With Habs, Leafs And Sharks, Kings

Posted by Don Melrose on 10/3/2014 10:18:49 PM

The 2014-15 NHL season gets underway on Wednesday night with four rivalry games including the oldest in hockey as the Montreal Canadiens visit the Toronto Maple Leafs. Here is a quick look at the four games for opening night.

Montreal Canadiens @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Wednesday, 7:00 PM ET

The Maple Leafs have been one of the most consistently inconsistent teams over the past couple of years but they have plenty of talent on their roster and enough incentive to start off strong with so much on the line in terms of jobs. Montreal might very well be the better team in the long run but they haven’t exactly dominated Toronto over the past couple of years and their season begins with a very tough road trip. Look for the Maple Leafs to score a couple of goals early and get the crowd in to it with Phil Kessel leading the way up front to leave the Canadiens playing catch up for most of the game.

Philadelphia Flyers @ Boston Bruins

Wednesday, 7:30 PM ET

These teams are both playing with redemption on their minds after the Flyers started slow a year ago and never really reached their potential while the Bruins had their Stanley Cup hopes dashed in the second round of the playoffs versus Montreal. Philadelphia should be a better team early on than they were last season but they have struggled against Boston in the past and will be in tough on the road for the opener. Look for Zdeno Chara and a deep Bruins’ defense core to slow down the Flyers in front of Tuukka Rask while Patrice Bergeron and company score just enough goals to pull out the win.

Vancouver Canucks @ Calgary Flames

Wednesday, 10:00 PM ET

The Flames have the home advantage on Wednesday but that might not be enough for a young team that is expected to need at least one more year before they become a playoff contender again. The same can’t be said for a veteran Vancouver team looking to put last year’s disappointment behind them. That will start up front with a bounce back season from the Sedins while Ryan Miller takes over as the undisputed No. 1 between the pipes.

San Jose Sharks @ Los Angeles Kings

Wednesday, 10:00 PM ET

The Sharks will have insult added to injury when they are forced to watch the Kings raise their Stanley Cup banner in Los Angeles but it should also serve as motivation to come out strong. San Jose has the weapons at all three levels to be a contender again as well as plenty of motivation to come out of the gate quickly and earn some revenge against the same team that came back from down 3-0 in the opening round of the playoffs to beat them in seven. The Kings will deal with a bit of a Stanley Cup hangover and the Sharks should be able to capitalize with a victory in their building.
