The Philadelphia Flyers fell out of the list of the NHL undefeated teams as they lost to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime in their last game. They were still able to salvage a point but the win goes to the visiting Kings as Jack Johnson made a game winner on a power play in overtime. Ex-Flyers Mike Richards was credited for an assist in the game winning goal.

Here are three undefeated teams left:

  1. Toronto Maple Leafs(3-0-0, 6 pts)  – Toronto edge out the visiting Calgary Flames (1-3-0, 2 pts) in their last game, 3-2. After being 1-2 in the second period, Phil Kessel followed up his hat trick with a 2 goal game including the tying and game winning goal against the Flames. Up next for them is  the streaking Colorado Avalance (4-1-0, 8 pts) who will visit the Air Canada Centre tomorrow.
  2. Washington Capitals (4-0-0, 8 pts) – Tomas Vokoun saved 33 shots to preserve a 2-1 win for the Capitals over the visiting Ottawa Senators (1-4-0, 2 pts). All 3 goals of the game were scored in the first period. Peter Regin scored the game winner. The Capitals will next host the Florida Panthers (2-1-0, 4).
  3. Detroit Red Wings (4-0-0, 8 pts) – The Red Wings are off to another amazing start as they as they visited Minnesota and beat the wild in overtime, 3-2. After being down 0-2, Ian White and Juri Hudler scored to tie the game in regulation. Johan Franzen finished off OT with a power play goal. They will almost have a week’s rest before hosting Columbus Blue Jackets (0-4-1, 1 pt).
We do not know how long the 3 teams can keep this up but it wpuld be amazing to see a team go undefeated entering November.
