We’ve got a packed schedule of NHL games ahead of us, so make sure you reserve your spot on the couch for tonight’s on-ice activities. That said, let’s visit with some of the notable players and storylines out there right now.
Sergei Bobrovsky, G, Columbus Blue Jackets: The Jackets lost a couple of defensemen yesterday against the Predators at Nationwide Arena, but still pulled out a 4-0 shutout win. Bobrovsky was perfect on 39 saves for his first shutout of the season to bring the Jackets to 8-13-0. It was their fourth win in five games.
Columbus lost Fedor Tyutin and Cody Goloubef in the first period. Both were injured.

Petr Mrazek, G, Detroit Red Wings: Mrazek had a good night in goal as well, logging 35 saves on 37 shots while the Red Wings hung on for a 3-2 win against the Kings at Joe Louis Arena.
Detroit blocked 13 shots in the game, with three coming in the last five seconds of the game. It was the first time they’ve scored three goals at home since October 16. The Red Wings are now 10-8-2 on the season, while the Kings fall to 12-7-0 thus far.
Jeff Petry, D, Montreal Canadiens: Carey Price was back in goal last night for the Canadiens, and he made 33 saves on the way to a 5-3 win over the Islanders at Barclays Center. He’d missed nine games with a lower-body injury.
Petry helped out on the offensive side with two goals, while Nathan Beaulieu put up a score and a helper.
Montreal is now 15-4-2 on the year.
Leon Draisaitl, C, Edmonton Oilers: Draisaitl started out the season in the minors, but will likely be hanging around for a while. He posted a goal and two assists for the Oilers last night against the Devils at Rexall Place. He’s now got a five-game points streak.
Taylor Hall put up a goal and two assists as well, and Anders Nilsson had 19 saves in the victory.
Edmonton is now 7-12-1 on the year but has reason to be optimistic about their future.
