It’s been a pretty interesting week in the NHL, and we’ll be getting plenty of opportunities to see some more magic out on the ice today. There are a full 10 games on the schedule in the coming hours, so we hockey fans will have to budget our time wisely. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players out there making headlines this morning. Here’s the latest.

Cory Schneider, G, New Jersey Devils: Schneider was on lockdown last night against Washington, and he helped the Devils get a win. He posted 31 saves in the 2-1 victory, which brings him to 9-9-7 on the season. Helping out offensively was Jaromir Jagr, who managed a pair of assists.
That closes out the week for the Devils, but they’ve got a busy four-game set next week, starting tomorrow against the Rangers at home.

Henrik Zetterberg, LW, Detroit Red Wings: Zetterberg continued his awesome string of games last night against Montreal, helping the team to a 4-1 victory. He posted a goal and an assist in the win, giving him two scores and six helpers in just his last four games. Defensively, Jonas Gustavsson posted a nice 31-save outing.
The Red Wings will close out their current home-stand tomorrow, welcoming in the Panthers. After that it’s off to Philly on Tuesday.

Ryan O’Reilly, C, Colorado Avalanche: O’Reilly has been a big contributor lately, and he came up with another big game last night against the Panthers. He managed a goal and an assist in the 3-2 win, which gives him seven scores and three helpers over his last 10 appearances.
The Avs won’t get much time to savor the victory; They’ll be back at it tonight in Tampa Bay. They’ll take their talents to Dallas on Monday before heading home to face Minnesota on Thursday.

Mike Ribeiro, C, Phoenix Coyotes: This one had all the makings of a blowout, but turned into a nail-biter. The Coyotes built up a 4-0 lead on the Oilers, which would hold until the second period, but Edmonton would make things interesting with three unanswered goals. Phoenix was able to hold on and win 4-3, with Ribeiro posting a goal and an assist in the victory.
The Coyotes will play every other day next week, starting tomorrow in Vancouver.
