NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
February 25, 2015
There were 11 NHL games last night, so there was no shortage of hockey action on the schedule. Things are easing up a bit tonight, but we’ve still got some good matchups out there. In the meantime, let’s check out the latest news in our daily wrap-up.
Eddie Lack, G, Vancouver Canucks: Lack was a brick wall last night in Boston, as the Canucks bagged a 2-1 victory over the Bruins. The Vancouver net-minder made 40 saves on 41 shots to get the team to 35-22-3 on the season.
Perhaps even more remarkable is the fact that Vancouver was playing without seven regular players in this one, thanks to a rash of injuries. They’re 3-1-0 on their five-game road trip so far.
