We’re coming off a pretty active schedule in the NHL last night, and we’ve got five more games to look forward to this evening. While we’re getting settled in and waiting for those pucks to hit the ice, let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s in the news this morning.
Kyle Okposo, RW, New York Islanders: The Islanders came out on top against the Bruins last night, logging a win 3-2. Okposo scored in the second, with Cal Clutterbuck and Frans Nielsen also finding twine.
For the Bruins, the loss was secondary to star player Zdeno Chara’s injury. He left due to an undisclosed ailment at the 8:12 mark in the second.

Sean Monahan, C, Calgary Flames: The Flames posted an all-around solid effort against a reeling Carolina team last night, managing a 5-0 shutout. Monahan posted two goals on his three shots, while goalie Jonas Hiller came up with a 16-save blanking.
For Monahan, Matt Stajan and Lance Bouma, each scored his first time of the season in this game, and it was Calgary’s first home win of the new year. Hiller now has a three-game winning streak to his credit.
Niklas Kronwall, D, Detroit Red Wings: For most of the game last night, the Penguins were in firm control of the Red Wings. They were up 3-1 heading into the third period when Detroit let off a flurry of scoring beginning at the 17:21 mark of the third. They scored twice to force overtime, then finished it off in the extra period to take an improbable 4-3 win.
Kronwall posted two goals and an assist, while Justin Abdelkader managed the game-winner for Detroit.
Ryan Johansen, C, Columbus Blue Jackets: There was all kinds of excitement brewing throughout the course of the Blue Jackets’ game against the Sharks last night. After falling behind 0-2, Columbus rallied in the second to take a 3-2 lead, then lost it in the third. They came back with two unanswered goals to finish the game on top 5-4.
Johansen logged a pair of goals, as did Mark Letestu. On the other side, Joe Pavelski also had two scores for his team.
