Boston: After injury-shortened season, Bruins forward David Krejci focuses on staying positive. Joe McDonald has more.

Chicago: Jesse Rogers previews the Hawks' season opener tonight against the Avalanche in Denver, breaking down the starting lineups and looking at what the key ingredient will be for success.

Dallas: What is life going to be like for the Stars without Mike Modano in town? Richard Durrett previews a whole new hockey world in Big D.

New York: The New Jersey Devils will start the season Friday with just 20 players on their roster, but met Wednesday's 3 p.m. ET deadline to get underneath the salary cap without giving up any of their players to other teams.
