NHL News: Player News and Updates for 11/28/13
NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Blackhawks, the Penguins, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 28, 2013
Hockey fans will spend this Thanksgiving Day with plenty to talk about. Although we’ll have to wait until this evening to experience any NHL action, we’re still feeling the effects of a heavy schedule on last night’s slate. With that in mind, let’s take a look at a few of the notable players who are making headlines around the league this morning. Here’s the latest.
Bobby Ryan, RW, Ottawa Senators: Lots of Senators got in on the action yesterday against the Capitals. Ryan, in particular, had a solid outing. He managed a pair of goals in the 6-4 comeback road win, which gives him a grand total of 13 on the year to go along with his 11 assists.
The Sens will be at home again this evening; they’ll face the incoming Canucks. Their next game after that features the incoming Red Wings on Sunday.

Henrik Zetterberg, LW, Detroit Red Wings: Speaking of the Red Wings, let’s check in on Zetterberg. He kept his points streak alive yesterday, posting a goal and an assist in a 6-1 rout of the Bruins. That gives him seven points in his last four outings. Also contributing to the cause were Niklas Kronwall (one goal; one assist) and Johan Franzen (three assists).
The Red Wings will be in New York to take on the Islanders tomorrow. After that, it’s off to Ottawa on Sunday.
Evgeni Malkin, C, Pittsburgh Penguins: Down 1-4 early in the second period, many Pens fans likely walked out on this one. Those that did missed out on an epic comeback, resulting in a 6-5 shootout win for Pittsburgh. Malkin notched the tying score in the third, part of a two-goal, one-assist outing that brought his points streak to six games. He has three goals and nine assists in that span.
Next up is a three-game road trip. The Penguins will visit the Lightning tomorrow and the Panthers on Saturday.
Patrick Kane, RW, Chicago Blackhawks: The Blackhawks completed their Canadian swing last night with a victory, and Kane kept his hot streak going. He notched a pair of goals in the 3-2 win over the Flames, and now has six scores and eight helpers in his last 10 outings.
Kane and company will be back in action--and back on the road--tomorrow in Dallas. After that, it’s off to Phoenix on Saturday before returning to the UC on Tuesday to face the Stars once again.
NHL Daily Schedule: We’ve got just two games on the schedule for this evening, which should serve as a nice nightcap on a day filled with sports and family. Here’s a look at the schedule, along with the start times and TV networks where you can catch the games.
