Trochek, Barkov score in SO; Panthers beat Rangers 3-2

The New York Rangers picked up first round pick Mika Zibanejad from the Ottawa Senators this summer, acquiring him in a swap for fellow center Derrick Brassard in the middle of July. They play a home-and-home with Pittsburgh this week. He finished last season with his best numbers to date, hitting the 50-point mark - so losing him will hurt the Rangers, who have been the lucky beneficiaries of quality supplementary offense this year largely in part due to the arrival of his services.

'Fantastic Beasts' Takes Top Spot at Box Office

Warner Bros. expected it would safely land above $70 million. Of its worldwide box office, $15 million was from 665 IMAX screens.

US stocks slip as health care and technology take losses

The Nasdaq composite touched a record high early on, but turned lower and gave up 12.46 points, or 0.2%, to 5,321.51. That's not a big loss, but the major indexes hadn't fallen that much since before the presidential election. The gap between 10-year government bonds in the US and Germany widened to 200 basis points, its widest level since at least 1990, as investors expect the European Central Bank will keep monetary policy loose to stoke euro zone inflation.

Germany's Merkel will seek a fourth term, face populist tide

Ms. Merkel's candidacy ends months of speculation within her own party, which widely expected her to run again as there is no clear alternative candidate who could fill her shoes. The push from Brussels, where Germany has tried to foist its fiscal discipline on other European Union members, signals the limits of Merkel's capacity to lead in Europe, where her open-door migrant policy has proved especially unpopular with eastern neighbors.

Fantastic Beasts movie spins magic in the US

Fantastic Beasts becomes one of the year's 10 best openings in North America, but it is the lowest yet for author and screenwriter Rowling's Harry Potter franchise. The problem is, when your film costs between $180 and $200 million (and likely a similar amount spent on marketing), is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them a money victor, or an investment in the future? The studio is hoping good word of mouth will drive further returns.
