A little under two years ago scored the goal that took Team Finland to World Championship Finals and made the whole country fall in love with him.

And now, last night he got his so very long awaited NHL deput, and scored his first career NHL goal. He's all grown up.

Discounting the first period the game was a really great watch all in all. The power play looks like it might have the potential to be really deadly, especially once the second line truly get's it going. Getting goals from three different lines was really promising and if someone was wondering if the chemistry with the Parise-Koivu-Heatley line would work out, I'd say based on the opening night performance, it's working just great.

Other highlights: Spurgeon and Brodziak getting assists, Granlund getting the second star of the game and the overall look of the penalty kill.
Here's to hoping that they keep at it in the same manner with the Stars. Koivu and Parise getting their first goals of the season would be nice. ;)

Meanwhile elsewhere on the league: Selänne opened up with 2 goals and 2 assists against the Canucks. Not bad for a 42 year old. If this is the stage of things to come, we might see him break 700 career goals this season. And that'd be so very very awesome indeed.
