NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Flyers, the Stars, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 14, 2013
There were only three games in the NHL last night, so it was a pretty quiet evening (especially compared to the NBA’s 12-game set). We’ll be getting back to business with seven more games tonight, so it’ll be a busier schedule out on the ice. That said, let’s check in on some of the noteworthy names out there who are making headlines this morning. Here’s the latest.
Josh Harding, G, Minnesota Wild: Last night’s game between the Wild and the Maple Leafs was certainly eventful. Harding was battling an illness coming into this one, but was forced into action when fellow net-minder Niklas Backstrom was injured (upper-body injury on a shot to the head). Harding filled in well, guiding the Wild to a 2-1 shootout victory on 19 of 20 saves.
We’ll have to wait and see what Backstrom’s status will be, but as of right now we can look ahead to the Wild’s upcoming schedule. They’re at home against the Panthers tomorrow night, then will kick off a busy week Sunday at home against Winnipeg.

Ray Emery, G, Philadelphia Flyers: Matchups between the Flyers and Penguins are always interesting, and this one was no different. Emery was solid in a tight game, saving 30 of 31 shots in the 2-1 win. His only blemish was a second period goal by Sidney Crosby (his ninth of the year). The Flyers have now won three games in a row; the Penguins, conversely, have lost their last three.
Looking ahead, Philly will be in Winnipeg tomorrow night. After that, they’ll pick back up again Tuesday with a home game against Ottawa.
Tyler Seguin, C, Dallas Stars: The Stars didn’t have a whole lot of trouble against the Oilers last night, taking care of business 3-0. Seguin managed the team’s second goal, coming late in the third period and padding the score of an otherwise tight game. Edmonton has now been shut out three consecutive times at home for the first time in franchise history.
As for the Stars, they’re in Calgary tonight, then won’t play again until Sunday in Vancouver. They’re back home next Thursday facing the Rangers.
NHL Daily Schedule: 14 teams will be in action tonight, so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find a team you love (or hate). Here’s a look at the full schedule, as well as the start times and TV networks you can find the games on.
