NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on Sedin, tonight's TV schedule and more
November 29, 2013
The NHL didn’t take yesterday off, and we were treated to a pair of pretty good matchups on the ice last night. We’ve got a packed schedule of 12 games to look forward to today, so while we’re waiting on those pucks to drop let’s take a look around the league at some of the noteworthy names out there and see what everyone’s up to. Here’s the latest.
Daniel Sedin, LW, Vancouver Canucks: Sedin continued his strong play against the Senators last night, and ended up with a very memorable outing. He notched his 300th career goal in the 5-2 road victory, and added an assist as well. The two points give him a total of seven over his last four games. Henrik Sedin also had a pretty nice game, posting a pair of assists himself.
That was just the first installment of the Canucks’ four-game road trip. They’ll be out again tomorrow in New York for the Rangers game. After that it’s off to Carolina on Sunday.

Ilya Bryzgalov, G, Edmonton Oilers: Bryzgalov got his first appearance as an Oiler yesterday, and he made it a good one. He notched 33 saves in a 3-0 shutout effort against the Predators. It was the 31st shutout of his career. Helping out offensively were Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (one goal) and Jordan Eberle (one goal, one assist).
The Oilers will also be on the road with a three-game tilt that lasts through this weekend. They’ll be in Columbus tonight, followed by a trip to Dallas on Sunday.
