Wednesday January 7

There were only 2 games up for grabs on Wednesday night but it was a special one as Mr. Indecisive, Mats Sundin made his debut for the Vancouver Canucks. Sundin managed a whopping 0 goals, 0 assists, 0 shots and 0 penalty minutes in 15 minutes and 2 seconds of the most boring debut ever played by anybody, anywhere. The contributions by Former Islanders in both of those games were much more interesting. Let us take a look:

Montreal defenseman Roman Hamrlik recorded 3 even strength assists as the Canadiens thumped the host New York Rangers 6-3. Hamrlik assisted on the team's 2nd, 5th and 6th goals. He now has 2 goals and 12 assists for 14 points on 38 games. For the 16th straight season Hamrlik has reached the 10+ helper mark. The 3 point effort was his first since October 20, 2007 - a span of 120 games (13 playoff) without such a night. As well, the 3 assists capped his first multi-point game since October 13, 2008, the 3rd game of the season.

Edmonton winger Robert Nilsson notched a powerplay goal, the Oilers' 1st of the game, as they fell to the visiting Vancouver Canucks 4-2. Nilsson has 3 points (2 goals, 1 assist) over the last 4 games and has 6 goals and 7 assists for 13 points on 34 games. The netter was career point #75 for Nilsson and came in his 162nd game.
