NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Blues, tonight's TV schedule and more
January 5, 2014
Hockey fans are probably still dizzy from all the NHL action that took place yesterday, but we’ve got five more matchups to look forward to in the coming hours. While we’re getting settled in and waiting on game time, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy names out there who are making headlines this morning. Here’s the latest.
Torey Krug, D, Boston Bruins: Krug missed out on Friday’s practice due to an unspecified issue, but it’s a good thing he was able to hit the ice yesterday against the Jets. He notched two goals and an assist in the 4-1 victory, which gives him a total of 10 scores and 13 helpers on the season.
Krug and the gang will be back in action as their California road trip begins on Tuesday. They’ll start things out in Anaheim.

Dominic Moore, C, New York Rangers: The Maple Leafs weren’t able to carry any momentum from their Winter Classic win into their game against the Rangers. New York handily destroyed them, taking it 7-1. Moore posted a pair of goals in the victory; He now has three scores to go along with his three helpers so far this year.
The win concludes the Rangers’ road trip and gives them a 3-1 record on the week. They’ll host the Blue Jackets tomorrow.
Patrik Berglund, C, St. Louis Blues: After a three-game drought, Berglund got back into the points column yesterday against the Blue Jackets. He notched a pair of goals in the 6-2 win, giving him six scores and 11 assists on the season. Helping out were Vladimir Sobotka (one goal; one assist) and Vladimir Tarasenko (two assists).
When they get back to action on Tuesday, the Blues will head up north for a Canadian swing. They’ll hit Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver this week.
Henrik Zetterberg, LW, Detroit Red Wings: Zetterberg has been crushing lately, and his stellar play continued yesterday against Dallas. He posted a pair of goals in the overwhelming 5-1 win, which extends his points streak to four games and gives him 13 points in his last 10 outings.
Zetterberg will get to see if he can keep it going this week, but he’ll have to wait a few days. Detroit’s next game isn’t until Thursday in San Jose.
