We’ve got another full day of hockey on the way, with the action beginning this afternoon and extending into the wee hours of the night. While we’re waiting on those pucks to drop, let’s take a look around the league at some of the notable players and storylines out there this morning.
Cam Talbot, G, New York Rangers: Talbot continued his excellent streak against the Flyers yesterday, recording his second consecutive shutout of that team. He deflected 26 shots in the 3-0 win, extending his goal-less streak to 156:27.
Offensively, Martin St. Louis posted a goal and an assist--he’s now the 81st player in league history to record 1,000 points in his career. Derek Stepan also added three assists to the dominating outing.

Corey Crawford, G, Chicago Blackhawks: Crawford recorded a pretty good game yesterday against the Ducks. He stopped 23 of 24 shots in the 4-1 victory, with Patrick Kane, Andrew Shaw and Brad Richards each scoring a goal.
On the other side, Crawford’s counterpart Frederik Andersen had a busy day. He saw 37 shots come his way and deflected 34.
Matt Niskanen, D, Washington Capitals: The Capitals hadn’t scored an evenly-matched goal against the Islanders in almost 130 minutes before their game yesterday, but they got their revenge in the end.
The Caps posted a 5-2 win against the streaking Isles, taking a 5-2 victory at home. Niskanen logged three assists, while Marcus Johansson managed a score and a helper of his own. Goalie Braden Holtby stopped 26 of 28 shots to earn the third star.
Ryan Miller, G, Vancouver Canucks: Miller logged a strong effort yesterday against Columbus, and the result was a 5-0 shutout for Vancouver.
He stopped all 31 shots that came his way in the win, with Chris Higgins (goal; assist) and Nick Bonino (three assists) helping out on offense.
Miller hasn’t allowed a goal in the last 152:05. He’s got three shutouts so far, helping Vancouver to a nice 16-6-1 record.
