NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
November 3, 2014
It was a pretty good weekend for NHL hockey, as we saw plenty of interesting things out there on the ice. We’ve got just one game on the schedule tonight, but there’s more action on the way in the coming days. In the meantime, let’s check in on some of the key players everyone’s talking about right now.
Cam Ward, G, Carolina Hurricanes: The Hurricanes were up 2-0 on the defending champion Kings early in the second period of yesterday’s game, but things got interesting down the stretch. Carolina was able to hold on for a close 3-2 victory against L.A., thanks to a solid effort from Ward, who had 30 saves on 32 shots.
Elias Lindholm and Chris Terry each had a goal and an assist for the ‘Canes. For Terry, that gives him four goals and three helpers through 10 games.

Josh Jooris, C, Calgary Flames: The rookie Jooris had his best game as a professional yesterday against the Canadiens, accounting for a pair of goals in the 6-2 victory. Helping him out along the way were Johnny Gaudreau (two assists) and T.J. Brodie (three assists).
Back to Jooris: the 24-year-old rookie has three goals in six appearances so far, and just seems to keep getting better with every game. It was a nice start to the Flames’ Eastern Conference road trip.
Shane Doan, RW, Arizona Coyotes: Yesterday’s Coyotes-Capitals game certainly was wild. Arizona entered the second period down 3-1, but rattled off five straight goals and hung on for a crazy 6-5 win at Verizon Center. Doan led the way for his team with two goals and an assist, while on the other side Nicklas Backstrom (three assists) and Alex Vouching (goal; three assists) came up big in the losing effort.
Washington has now lost four in a row, and needs to get some consistency from the team’s big names.
Michael Hutchinson, G, Winnipeg Jets: The Jets are getting good at this shutout thing. The team registered their second shutout in as many games yesterday, when Hutchinson surprisingly blanked the Blackhawks for a 1-0 Winnipeg victory. Michael Frolik scored the lone goal while Corey Crawford took the tough-luck loss on the other side.
The Jets also got a shutout from Ondrej Pavelec on the exact same 1-0 margin on Saturday against the Rangers. They move to 6-5-1 on the season.
