Henrik Zetterberg scored three goals and his second assist of the game set up Pavel Datsyuk's tiebreaking goal.
A guide to this morning's must-read hockey stories:
• Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said forward Wayne Simmonds was "suffering from a touch of whiplash" after a vicious elbow to the head from Capitals' defender John Erskine. They're expecting a suspension in Washington.
• With a pair of five-point efforts just six games into the season, it's fair to say Buffalo Sabres' forward Thomas Vanek is pretty good at hockey.
• He's not snakebitten. He's not unlucky. In fact, it's pretty obvious why Toronto Maple Leafs' sniper Phil Kessel is oh-fer-2013.
• Maybe he'll get off the schneid tonight against the Bruins, a team looking for a toughness re-set after being punked by the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
• Will P.K. Subban make his season debut today against the Sabres? Coach Michel Therrien called him "a game-time decision."
• Outside of Don Cherry with Bobby Orr, the greatest coach/player mancrush in history may have been Ken Hitchcock/Jere Lehtinen. So if the Blues' coach is willing to invoke the name of the three-time Selke winner to praise St. Louis rookie Vladimir Tarasenko, you know the kid is more than just a show pony.
