NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/19/13
NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Flames, the Penguins, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 19, 2013
Last night featured a pretty light schedule in the NHL, with just three games happening out there. That said, we’ll have quite a bit more to do this evening--there are 10 matchups taking place across the league in the coming hours. In the meantime, let’s examine a few of the noteworthy players out there and see what everyone’s up to right now. Here’s the latest.
Tuukka Rask, G, Boston Bruins: After a crummy outing against Ottawa in his last appearance, Rask needed a bounce-back game. He got one last night against the Hurricanes, posting 24 saves on 25 shots in the 4-1 victory. In his last four wins, Rask has allowed just three scores. Helping out on offense last night were Reilly Smith, Carl Soderberg, Johnny Boychuk and Milan Lucic, who all had goals.
Tonight, the Bruins will be in New York to take on the Rangers. After that, the Blues visit Boston Thursday and the Hurricanes come to town Saturday.

Sidney Crosby, C, Pittsburgh Penguins: All of the scoring action in last night’s Penguins-Ducks game happened in the third period. Brian Gibbons and Brandon Sutter got things started, while Crosby finished it up in a 3-1 Pittsburgh victory. The score was Crosby’s 10th of the season, and he was helped out on the play by Evgeni Malkin, who now has 17 assists on the year.
The Pens will be in DC tomorrow to face the Capitals, then they’ll head home Friday for the incoming Islanders. The week will end in Montreal Saturday.
Mike Cammalleri, LW, Calgary Flames: After a two-game statistical lull, Cammalleri got back on the stat sheet last night in a marathon game against the Jets. He got the scoring started in the second, tallying his ninth goal of the year. After a blistering offensive push by both teams and a scoreless OT period, the Flames took it 5-4 in an eight-round shootout.
Calgary currently sits at 7-11-3, and this was their first win after a six-game skid. Their three-game home-stand begins tomorrow against the Blue Jackets.
