NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/4/14
NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
November 4, 2014
We had just one game in the NHL last night, but things will be getting back to normal (which is to say, busy) this evening. We’ve got 12 matchups to look forward to, but in the meantime let’s check out some of the notable players and storylines shaping up across the league.
Vladimir Tarasenko, RW, St. Louis Blues: Tarasenko got to play the hero not once but twice in the Blues’ big shootout win over the Rangers at the Garden last night. He notched a stellar game-tying goal in the second, then provided the decisive shootout score for a 4-3 victory. He also had an assist.
On the other side, Martin St. Louis notched two goals back-to-back in the third, but it wasn’t enough. The Rangers had some great chances in overtime, but fell to 1-1-2 in their last three.

The Red Wings’ Jimmy Howard will be getting the start in goal tonight against the Senators, according to sources close to the team. He’s been on quite the streak lately, posting a 3-0-1 record in his last four appearances. In his last three starts, he’s given up six goals and has a 1.95 GAA.
Let’s check out a couple of injury updates from the Canucks. Left winger Tom Sestito has been ruled out indefinitely after leaving Sunday’s matchup due to a lower-body injury. He’ll be out a while, and in his place we’ll get to see more Bo Horvat.
Also, defenseman Kevin Bieksa has been classified as day-to-day after taking a puck to his eye on Sunday against the Predators. He’s traveling with the team, though.
Though the Blues’ Paul Stastny was participating fully in yesterday’s skate, he’s still a few games away from a return. Stastny is traveling with the team, but it’s looking more like a weekend return from his upper-body injury.
The Penguins’ Robert Bortuzzo has been declared healthy and ready to return to the ice. He was a full participant in practice yesterday and should be available for tonight’s game against Minnesota. He’s getting over an upper-body injury.
