TV:

We’ve got a pretty steady set of games tonight in the NHL--seven to be exact--so it shouldn’t be too hard to find at least a couple of good ones to watch. Before we welcome in the weekend with some much-needed on-ice action, let’s take our daily stroll around the league and see what’s happening out there. Here’s the latest.

Anton Khudobin, G, Carolina Hurricanes: Things started out rough in the first period for the Hurricanes against the Stars last night, but they smoothed their game out and ended up with a nice win over the stars. Khudobin put up 33 saves on 34 shots in the 4-1 victory, with Justin Faulk (goal; assist) and John-Michael Liles (goal; two assists) helping out on offense.
That’s two straight wins for the ‘Canes, who will try to make it three in a row tomorrow at home against New Jersey. They’ll start out next week on Tuesday on the road against the Rangers.

Nazem Kadri, C, Toronto Maple Leafs: After Patrice Bergeron tied it up at 3-3 in the third last night, things looked pretty bleak for the Leafs. Kadri got to play the hero in the overtime period, however, notching a game-winning goal at the 2:51 mark to deliver the 4-3 win. It was his 19th score of the season, and he’s got 30 assists to his credit as well.
The Leafs’ three-game week will conclude tomorrow at home against Winnipeg. Next week begins on Tuesday in Tampa Bay at the beginning of a road trip.

Sidney Crosby, C, Pittsburgh Penguins: The Penguins clinched the Metropolitan Division last night, but it didn’t technically come as a result of anything they did (the Flyers helped out by losing 0-2). That said, Pittsburgh still topped Winnipeg 4-2, with Crosby tallying a pair of assists in the victory. He has 66 helpers and 36 goals on the year.
The Pens’ busy four-game week will conclude tomorrow in Minnesota, but then it’s straight to Colorado for Sunday’s game.

Logan Couture, C, San Jose Sharks: What a great game it was last night between the Sharks and the Kings. The potential playoff preview ended in a 2-1 Sharks win, with Couture providing the eventual game-winner in the second period. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau each had an assist, while Antti Niemi stopped 26 of 27 shots.
Tomorrow, the Sharks’ home-stand will conclude when Nashville comes to town. The team will get a few days off before heading to Anaheim on Wednesday.
