NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Blackhawks, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 26, 2013
With 18 teams on the ice last night, it was a busy evening in the NHL. Things will slow down tonight, as we’ve only got one game on the schedule, but there are plenty of good matchups ahead this week. With that said, let’s take our daily look around the league and check in on some of this morning’s news-makers. Here’s the latest.
Torey Krug, D, Boston Bruins: Krug got to play the hero last night against the Penguins. He posted the decisive overtime goal early in the extra period, giving the Bruins a 4-3 victory. It was Krug’s first goal since November 7, but he’s racked up five assists since then.
The Bruins will head to Detroit tomorrow night, then travel home to host the Rangers Friday and the Blue Jackets Saturday.

Ryan Johansen, C, Columbus Blue Jackets: Speaking of the Blue Jackets, they straight up destroyed the Maple Leafs last night. Johansen got in on the act with two goals and an assist in the 6-0 rout, giving him his third multiple-points outing in the last nine games.
The Jackets finished off their road trip with wins in two of their last three, and they’ll head back home tomorrow to see the Predators. After that it’s another home game Friday against the Oilers and a trip to Boston Saturday.
Martin St. Louis, RW, Tampa Bay Lightning: Last night, St. Louis had a huge outing against a flat Rangers squad. Playing in his 1,000th career NHL game, he tallied two goals and an assist in a 5-0 shutout, which gives him eight points in the last six games. St. Louis now has 10 scores and 14 helpers on the year.
Tampa Bay has two more home games this week: they’ll host the Flyers tomorrow, and the Penguins on Friday.
Duncan Keith, D, Chicago Blackhawks: The Blackhawks put on a dominant performance last night in Edmonton, which is just what they needed during this northern road trip. Keith was at his best, posting a pair of assists in the 5-1 blowout. He now has a four-game points streak going, and has notched nine assists and a goal in the last 10 outings.
Keith and the gang will be heading to Calgary tomorrow, then they’ll hit Dallas on Friday and Phoenix on Saturday.
NHL Daily Schedule: There’s just one game happening out there tonight, so you don’t have much of a choice if you’re looking for some hockey on TV. Speaking of, here are the details on tonight’s matchup.
