NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Blues, tonight's TV schedule and more
January 3, 2014
After yesterday’s 10-game set in the NHL, we’ll be getting four more matchups this evening as we continue to welcome the new year. While we’re waiting on those pucks to drop tonight, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players and storylines out there right now. Here’s the latest.
Brad Marchand, LW, Boston Bruins: One of last night’s three overtime victories belonged to the Bruins, and it helped them stop their two-game skid. Marchand scored a goal in the extra period to give Boston a 3-2 win over the Predators, which was his 10th score of the season so far. He has 10 assists as well in 41 games.
Boston will get a home game against Winnipeg tomorrow afternoon, then they’ll hit the road next week, starting on Tuesday in Anaheim.

Kyle Turris, C, Ottawa Senators: Turris has been on quite a run recently. His solid play continued last night against the Jets, as he posted an assist on their decisive goal in the third. Turris now has at least one point in eight of his last 11 games and has racked up 10 goals and 22 helpers on the year so far.
The Senators will now hit the road, starting tomorrow night in Montreal. After that it’s off to Colorado on Wednesday.
Brian Elliott, G, St. Louis Blues: The Blues and Kings are heading in opposite directions. St. Louis is streaking right now, and they notched another victory over L.A. last night 5-0. Elliott stopped 30 in the shutout, which was his fifth victory in a row. T.J. Oshie helped out on offense with a pair of goals.
The Blues will stay at home tomorrow to face the Blue Jackets. Next week they’ll head to Edmonton on Tuesday to begin a Canadian road trip.
Joe Pavelski, C, San Jose Sharks: The Sharks have won two of three games this week, and they owe most of it to Pavelski. He notched a goal and an assist in last night’s 5-1 romp over Edmonton, which gives him eight scores and four helpers in his last 11 appearances. Pavelski has 17 goals and 22 assists on the season so far.
The Sharks will continue their busy stretch (eight games in two weeks) tomorrow night in Colorado. After that it’s off to Chicago on Sunday.
NHL Daily Schedule: Eight teams will be in action tonight, so there should be at least a couple of good matchups mixed in there. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks carrying the games.
