NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News
There’s just one NHL game on the schedule tonight, but that’s okay since we’ve got plenty to talk about from last night’s stuffed slate of matchups. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the notable players in the headlines today.
Adam Henrique, C, New Jersey Devils: The Devils came into this new season stressing the importance of scoring, and they certainly got off to a good start yesterday against the Flyers. Jersey took the game 6-4 on the strength of Henrique’s goal and assist, as well as Michael Ryder’s two helpers and a score of his own. The game was tied at 4-4 as late as 7:13 in the third, when Dainius Zubrus scored the eventual game-winner. It spoiled a nice outing from the Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds, who had two goals and an assist.

Pascal Dupuis, RW, Pittsburgh Penguins: Similarly, the Penguins-Ducks game also ended at 6-4, with Pittsburgh coming out on top in that one. Dupuis led the way with a goal and three assists, while superstar Sidney Crosby got off to a nice start on two goals and a helper.
On the other side, the Ducks’ Corey Perry logged a hat trick in his first regular season action; Unfortunately it was in a losing effort.
Rick Nash, LW, New York Rangers: The defending conference champs got off to a good start in shaking off their Stanley Cup disappointment last night against a strong Blues team, getting a 3-2 win thanks to Rick Nash. He logged a pair of goals and an assist in the win, with Chris Kreider helping out on a score and assist of his own.
Nash posted the game-winner at 18:10 in the third, securing a victory for Henrik Lundqvist, who posted 23 saves in net.
Darcy Kuemper, G, Minnesota Wild: The Wild ran “wild” over the Avalanche last night, posting a convincing 5-0 win in their season opener. Kuemper logged the shutout, but he didn’t have to do a whole lot with his 16 saves.
Minnesota out-shot the Avs 17-5 in the first period, getting contributions from Zach Parise (goal; two assists) and Ryan Suter (goal; assist) along the way to a win.
