Before I go any further, let me clarify. This, in the grand scheme of things, means nothing. Alright, now that we got that out of the way, let’s continue.

With a Friday night victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, the New York Rangers won their third game of the season to start 3-0 for the first time since 1989. Yes, for the first time since the John Ogrodnick era. In other words, for the first time in Steven Stamkos’ entire life.

Patrick Elias celebrates with Zach Parise after a goal.
The New Jersey Devils defeated the New York Islanders on Friday night by a score of 2-1, thanks in part to goals from Zach Parise and Patrick Elias. The Isles managed 26 shots on goal, but like many teams, had no answer for Martin Brodeur. Marty made 25 saves on the night, getting off to a fast start in a potential 2009/2009 Vezina Trophy bid.

“Marty is Marty. He is the best goalie of all-time,” said center Brian Rolston, acquired by the Devils over the off-season. “He was awesome again tonight and unfortunately that is what everyone is expecting of him.”

Much to the chagrin of fantasy owners, the Columbus Blue Jackets sent 2008 No. 6 overall draft pick Nikita Filatov to go hone his skills with the Syracuse Crunch.

As a result, the young phenom will miss the Jacket’s debut performance against the Dallas Stars on Friday night.

Kyle McLaren with Mike Grier
Veteran defenseman Kyle McLaren was placed on waivers on Tuesday, possibly ending his 4 ½ year tenure with the San Jose Sharks. In his time with the Sharks, McLaren spent 301 minutes in the penalty box, scored 12 goals, and landed 71 assists. If McLaren, who was frequently injured during his time with San Jose, isn’t claimed by any other NHL team, he will be assigned to Worcester, the location of San Jose’s top minor league team.

Horton Scores Against DiPietro

The New York Islanders are stumbling to the starting gate of the 2008/2009 NHL season. Last night they endured a 6-0 loss to the Florida Panthers. Florida goalie Tomas Vokoun looked to be in mid-season form, blocking each one of the 29 attempted shots on goal. Goals for the Panthers were scored by Anthony Stewart, Kamil Kreps, Rostislav Olesz , Jay Bouwmeester, Brett McLean and Nathan Horton. Left winger Ville Peltonen pitched in as well, notching three assists.

Alright, let’s take a break for just a moment away from the standard news fare. We know that you guys love the gadgets, gizmos, and consumer electronics just as much as we do.  These expensive and cool toys are often a marvel when you break them down to the technology that drives them. That’s what makes what we do fun, and why we love the interaction we have with our readers. However, we want to focus a bit of attention on the young ones in our country who would be happy to have a calculator for use in class, and the teachers who work for districts that can’t afford things like projectors for use in their schools.

Gear Live has joined the 2008 DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge, and we have chosen eight great causes that are centered around getting some basic technology and literature into classrooms located in our local area, as well as some of the hardest areas still suffering the affects of Hurricanes Ike and Katrina. We’ve chosen eight causes that we thought touched on what we believed in, and you can take a look at them and choose which one(s) you want to help. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the children of our nation. Just know that the money you donate will go directly to that specific teacher request - not into some big pot of money that is then doled out by the organization.

Some of the most expensive purchases for schools are consumer electronics. We believe that all children need to get acquainted with the tools of the future as they learn so they when they are ready to hit the workforce, they can succeed alongside their peers. Please, help us in assisting teachers, children, and schools in low-income areas get the tools they need to help their children excel.
