Travis Konecny helps Flyers beat Blackhawks in Prague
It was the first regular-season game outside of North America in Philadelphia’s 52-year history.
Vigneault became the 21st coach in Flyers history in April. He also has coached Montreal, Vancouver and the New York Rangers.
Auston Matthews had a goal and a pair of assists, and Cody Ceci — who came from Ottawa in an offseason trade — got his first goal as a Maple Leaf. Cam Atkinson scored for the Blue Jackets in a sixth straight season opener, the longest active streak in the NHL.
JETS 5, DEVILS 4, SO
Dmitry Kulikov, Jack Roslovic, Mathieu Perreault and Neal Pionk scored in regulation, and Laurent Brossoit made 35 saves for the Jets. Blake Coleman had two goals for New Jersey, including a spectacular one-handed shot while falling down. Nilita Gusev also scored in his first NHL game, Sami Vatanen added a goal, and newcomer P.K. Subban had two assists.
Nosek and Brayden McNabb scored in a 90-second span late in the second period to break open a 2-0 game.
