NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/27/13
NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Stars, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 27, 2013
There was just one game in the NHL last night, so we hockey fans are in need of a fix. Not to worry; there’s a packed 13-game schedule on the way this evening, so that should satisfy even the most jaded of NHL-lovers. While we’re waiting on the pucks to drop, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy names out there and see what’s happening around the league. Here’s the latest.
Antoine Roussel, LW, Dallas Stars: Despite what the final score would indicate, the NHL’s lone matchup yesterday between the Stars and Ducks was pretty quiet for most of the game. Then the third period came along, and the scoreboard exploded. The Ducks held a 2-1 lead heading into the final frame, but Dallas posted five goals (none from the top line) to take a stunning 6-3 victory. Roussel posted a pair of goals, with Ryan Garbutt (one goal; two assists) and Vernon Fiddler (two assists) contributing heavily to the win.
Looking ahead, the Stars will be back at home Friday, when the defending champion Blackhawks come to town.

Blackhawks Injury News: Speaking of, we’ve got a couple of updates on ailing Blackhawks players this morning. First off, D Johnny Oduya missed out on yesterday’s practice session due to a leg injury. That stems from Monday’s game, when he was struck in the leg by a puck. Oduya is still experiencing some residual soreness and is questionable for tonight against the Flames.
Also (and this isn’t exactly an injury), LW Marian Hossa rejoined the team after a two-game absence due to a personal matter. He’ll likely be able to suit up tonight.
Matt Duchene, C, Colorado Avalanche: Let’s check in on Duchene, as we’ve gotten a couple of tidbits on him in the past day or so. He hasn’t played since November 16, but we’re getting some signs of a return. Duchene returned to practice Monday, and although he’ll likely be out this evening against the Blues, there’s a good chance he’ll be able to get back out on the ice Friday in Minnesota.
NHL Daily Schedule: 26 teams will be in action tonight, so there’s a great chance that we’ll be seeing some stellar performances out on the ice. Here’s a look at the full schedule for this evening, complete with the start times and TV stations you can find the games on.
