[October 15, 2016]    Oct 14 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of National Hockey League games on Friday:

 

Predators 3, Blackhawks 0

The Nashville Predators started their most-anticipated season in franchise history Friday night with a win, thanks to their power play.

Scoring all its goals with the man advantage, Nashville edged the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 at sold-out Bridgestone Arena.

Major offseason acquisition P.K. Subban, Roman Josi and Mike Fisher netted the goals for the Predators, which won their fourth straight home opener with a cast of players that some expect to win the Central Division and Western Conference.

Oilers 5, Flames 3

Connor McDavid had his second straight three-point performance to lead Edmonton over Calgary at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The sophomore center scored once and set up two others to after having two goals and an assist to help the Oilers open Rogers Place in style with a 7-4 win over their Alberta rivals on Wednesday.

Leon Draisaitl scored twice, and Mark Letestu and Jordan Eberle had a goal each.

Sean Monahan, Michael Frolik and defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka scored for the Flames, who don't have much time to regroup as they head right off to Vancouver to play the Canucks in their season and home opener at Rogers Arena on Saturday night.

Flyers 4, Kings 2

Sean Couturier scored twice and the Philadelphia Flyers used a second-period run to upend the Los Angeles Kings 4-2 in their home opener on Friday night before 18,453 at Staples Center.

Nick Cousins recorded two assists for the Flyers (1-0-0), who ended a four-game skid in openers on the road.
