The NHL continues to hum along this evening, with six matchups on the schedule. While we’re waiting on those, let’s check out our daily wrap-up of the players and stats in the headlines right now.
Loui Eriksson, RW, Boston Bruins: Eriksson now has three career hat tricks, as he performed the feat last night at TD Garden against the Wild.
He scored twice in the second period to help propel Boston to a 4-2 victory. It was his first hat trick since December 31, 2009.
David Krejci posted two assists and Jonas Gustavsson logged 24 saves for the Bruins. They’re now 9-8-1 on the season.

Evgeni Malkin, C, Pittsburgh Penguins: The Penguins have stepped up their offensive game over the past couple of outings, most recently last night’s matchup against the Avalanche in Pittsburgh at Consol Energy Center.
Malkin scored in the 4-3 victory, and Sidney Crosby ended his six-game streak without a goal, posting the eventual game-winner.
The Pens are now 12-7-0 on the year, while Colorado slips to 7-11-0. They’ve lost two straight after starting out their seven-game trip with three wins.
Ben Bishop, G, Tampa Bay Lightning: The Rangers have found themselves a nemesis in the Lightning, who stopped their nine-game winning streak last night at Amalie Arena.
Bishop came up with 20 saves on 21 shots in the 2-1 victory, with Valtteri Filppula scoring the decisive goal shorthanded with just 1:05 left to play.
Tampa is now 9-9-3, and should get better as they continue to heal up. They were playing with five of their top nine forwards out due to injury.
Cam Fowler, D, Anaheim Ducks: No matter how well Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo played last night, the Ducks were able to overcome him and win 3-1 at BB&T Center.
Fowler and Andrew Cogliano scored against Luongo, who finished with 38 saves. With his next win, Luongo will move into seventh place on the all-time NHL victories list.
Frederik Andersen put up 23 saves for Anaheim, a nice bounce-back performance after getting pulled in his last outing. The Ducks are 7-9-4.
