With all the NHL to Houston expansion talk, what about Quebec City, which was a runner-up to Las Vegas? Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson says that he would support an expansion team in Quebec City if the NHL and the Board of Governors decided there should be one there. Said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman at a luncheon in Montreal: "As we sit here today, we're digesting and assimilating our 31st team. We have 16 in the East, 15 in the West. We're not going to expand just to satisfy notions of symmetry. I can't tell you today that [expansion] is something we're going to run off and do."

The Arizona Coyotes won in regulation against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be news, but there's nothing normal about going 20 consecutive games to start a season without a regulation win. Arizona set an NHL record for futility, breaking the 1999-2000 Calgary Flames' mark of 19 games, but 20 is where it ends after their 5-4 win over the Habs, in which they battled back after falling behind three times. They won ugly, as the teams combined for 21 turnovers. "It's the win you need. It's the win that can push you in the right direction," said center Derek Stepan after the Coyotes' third win of the season. "I always say that when you win a hockey game, it doesn't matter if everyone played good. And I think that holds true tonight." Here's coach Rick Tocchet with more, including the momentum swing the team claims it received from fights by Zac Rinaldo and Brad Richardson.
