NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
November 14, 2014
Things will be slowing down a bit in the NHL tonight, but we’ve still got six games to look forward to in the next several hours. With that in mind, let’s take our daily look around the league and check out some of the notable players who are making headlines today.
Blake Wheeler, RW, Winnipeg Jets: The Jets got a big effort from Wheeler last night, as he helped propel the team past the Hurricanes. The right winger posted two goals on six shots in the 3-1 victory, giving him seven scores on the year. Defensively, Michael Hutchinson held out well, making 22 saves on 23 shot. His counterpart, Cam Ward, allowed just the two goals to Wheeler on 36 shots.
The Jets now stand at 9-6-2 on the year.

Dale Weise, RW, Montreal Candiens: The Candiens didn’t have a whole lot of trouble with the Bruins last night, and got a pretty even effort from across the board to get the win. Weise posted a goal and an assist in the 5-1 victory, helping the team extend its win streak to four games.
Max Pacioretty scored twice and Jiri Sekac also got a goal. This also marked the debut for Sergei Gonchar, who logged 20:08 of ice time.
Paul Stastny, C, St. Louis Blues: Though much has been made of the Blues’ top-producing line this season, Stastny got to play the hero here. He posted the game-winner with just under six minutes left in the third to put St. Louis over the top 5-4 against the Predators. The victory enabled the Blues to retake first place in the Central.
Vladimir Tarasenko posted a goal and an assist in this one, with his line combining for five points overall.
Nino Niederreiter, RW, Minnesota Wild: The Wild ended their four-game losing streak last night against the Sabres, and Niederreiter had an evening to remember. He posted his first NHL hat trick in the 6-3 win, finishing it off on an empty-netter with 2:28 left in the game. Jared Spurgeon provided a goal, and Justin Fontaine aided the cause with two assists.
The win brings Minnesota to 8-7-0, while the Sabres spin their wheels at 3-13-2. Buffalo is 0-4-1 in their last five.
