New Jersey at Boston: Defending Stanley Cup champs figure to be focused for opener against Bruins. Expect strong game from goalie Martin Brodeur. DEVILS.
Minnesota at Chicago: The Wild made it all the way to the Western Conference finals so they won’t sneak up on anyone this year. The Blackhawks may gain some karma from the Cubs. They need a strong start. BLACKHAWKS.
Anaheim at Dallas: Giguere is back for Ducks after an incredible Stanley Cup playoffs. Dallas has been a great regular season team. STARS.
