TV:

There were just three games on the NHL schedule last night, but they made for some pretty intriguing hockey-watching in the end. Tonight we’ll be getting a huge dose of action on the ice, as there are a whopping 12 games going on out there. While we’re waiting, let’s take a closer look at some of the news-making players around the league and see what everyone’s up to out there. Here’s the latest.

Henrik Zetterberg, C, Detroit Red Wings: Zetterberg continued his great early-season production yesterday against the Bruins, and the Red Wings were able to post another nice offensive outing. Detroit would take the victory 3-2, with Zetterberg notching his fifth goal--and seventh point--of the season. Helping out were Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary, who each notched a goal.
Next up for the 4-2-0 Red Wings is a home game against Columbus tonight. They’ll follow that up with a trip to Colorado on Thursday.

Alex Ovechkin, RW, Washington Capitals: Ovechkin and the Caps were able to bounce back from a pretty ugly loss to the Avalanche over the weekend by taking it to the Oilers last night. Washington was able to post the victory on the strength of a three-goal second period, ultimately winning by a score of 4-2.
Ovechkin posted yet another goal and an assist, which gives him six scores and three helpers in six games thus far. He’s failed to post a point just once this year. Helping him out was Nicklas Backstrom, who managed a trio of assists.
Even with all the offensive talent, the Caps have been pretty uneven in the early-going. We’ll see how they follow this up tomorrow night at home against the visiting Rangers.

Jason Pominville, RW, Minnesota Wild: The Wild were the latest team to take advantage of the struggling Sabres, posting a 2-1 victory last night in Buffalo. Former Sabre Pominville dealt the finishing blow, a late-second-period power play goal that broke a 1-1 tie and would prove to be the game-winner. It was Pominville’s second score of the young season.
The Wild will try to keep their three-game win streak going as their road trip continues in Toronto tonight. After that it’s on to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

NHL Daily Schedule: With a dozen games on tap for tonight, it’s bound to be a busy day for hockey fans. There are some excellent matchups on the schedule, so let’s take a look at the full slate and see what TV networks will feature your favorite teams.
