NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
November 28, 2014
With just one game on yesterday’s schedule, we NHL fans are chomping at the proverbial bit in advance of today’s matchups. We’ve still got a few hours to wait before the pucks drop, so with that in mind let’s check out some of the notable players out there making headlines.
Pekka Rinne, G, Nashville Predators: In yesterday’s only NHL game, we saw a tense, physical, defense-oriented battle between the Predators and the Oilers. Nashville came out on top here with a 1-0 victory on the strength of Rinne’s 37 saves in a shutout effort. Filip Forsberg posted the game-winning goal for the home team.
On the other side, Viktor Fasth put up 24 saves on 25 shots in the tough-luck loss.

The Canucks’ Zack Kassian was slashed in the arm on Tuesday against New Jersey and wasn’t able to make the trip to Columbus with the team for today’s game.
Speculation dictates that Kassian’s injury seems fairly serious, as the team’s out on a seven-game trip right now. Fans will want to monitor Kassian’s health to see if he can join up with them at some point while they’re away.
In other Canadian team news, Carey Price will get the starting nod tonight in goal for Montreal, coming off a nice 33-save shutout outing against the Bruins in his last appearance. Dustin Tokarski will probably be in there for tomorrow’s game.
The Sabres’ Tyler Myers missed out on Wednesday’s game due to an undisclosed injury, and wasn’t able to practice yesterday either. He’s questionable leading up to today’s game against Montreal.
Speaking of players who are likely out of action today, the Bruins’ David Krejci falls into that category. He wasn’t able to practice yesterday due to his groin injury, which further fuels speculation that his condition is pretty serious. Some outlets are anticipating Krejci will miss at least a handful of the upcoming games, and possibly could stay home for the team’s road trip beginning December 1.
