+ Welcome back, Winnipeg Jets. Their second incarnation began Sunday … but the Montreal Canadiens spoiled their party by inflicting a 5-1 loss. Fans, Jets put on a great show.
+ Congratulations to Jaromir Jagr. Back in the NHL after three seasons in Russia, he recorded his 1,600th point with an assist in the Philadelphia Flyers' opener.
+ The New York Rangers waived Sean Avery and no one else claimed him. His act has grown old. He was to report to the Rangers' American Hockey League farm team.
