NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/6/14
NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
November 6, 2014
After just three games last night, the NHL will be getting back to business this evening with 10 matchups on the schedule. While we’re getting settled in and waiting on those pucks to drop, let’s take our daily look at some of the news-making players around the league. Here’s the latest.
Dustin Tokarski, G, Montreal Canadiens: The Canadiens needed a solid effort last night against the Sabres, and that’s exactly what they got. After suffering a three-game losing streak, Montreal posted a 2-1 shootout win in Buffalo last night on the strength of PA Parentau’s regulation and shootout scores. Tokarski held strong in net with 31 saves. His counterpart on the other side, Michal Neuvirth, managed the exact same tally in a tough-luck loss.
Alex Galchenyuk also notched a shootout score to help the Canadiens to 9-4-1 on the year.

Rick Nash, LW, New York Rangers: The Rangers have had power play issues dating back to last season, but they finally got some results from it here. Derick Brassard notched a PP goal at 1:50 into the OT period to give New York a 4-3 win over the Red Wings, while Nash also scored on the power play in the first period.
Matt Hunwick helped out with two assists, while Brassard also notched one of his own. That brings the Rangers’ record to 6-4-2 on the year so far. Their power play numbers have gotten a little better after going 2-for-28 in their first 10 appearances.
John Tavares, C, NY Islanders: Speaking of overtime games, the Islanders and Ducks got into one last night as well. Tavares posted a pair of goals in this one, with his second going at 2:18 in the extra period to give New York a 3-2 win.
It was a solid victory for the Isles, even though the Ducks were missing both Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. New York halts a three-game skid with the win here, so they’ll definitely take it.
