NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News
Tonight will be a pretty busy one in the NHL, as we’ve got nine matchups to look forward to in the coming hours. Before we settle in, let’s check out some of the notable players and storylines happening around the league.
William Karlsson, C, Anaheim Ducks: Welcome to the NHL, William Karlsson. The rookie forward notched his first two goals in a big 5-1 win over the Sabres yesterday, and there were notable contributions all over the place.
Ryan Getzlaf (assist) and Cam Fowler (assist) rounded out the Three Stars designations, and net-minder Frederik Andersen added 12 saves on 13 shots.

Daniel Briere, C, Colorado Avalanche: Briere scored on a rebound with just 0.4 seconds left in regulation to give the Avs a narrow 2-1 victory over the Bruins yesterday and their first win of the year so far. Matt Duchene added an assist and Reto Berra stopped 27 shots.
On the other side, Niklas Svedberg took the tough-luck loss on 30 saves. Loui Eriksson scored for the Bruins.
Craig Anderson, G, Ottawa Senators: If you like low-scoring, defensive battles, this was the game for you. The Senators eventually came out on top of the Panthers last night 1-0 on the strength of a Clarke MacArthur goal and a 30-save Anderson shutout.
Interestingly enough, Anderson is now 11-2-1 against his former team--he played from 2006-09 in Florida--and has three shutouts in that span.
As for the Panthers, they got a nice effort from Roberto Luongo, who made 23 saves, but couldn’t capitalize.
Steven Stamkos, C, Tampa Bay Lightning: Standing in stark contrast to the Panthers-Senators game was this offensive blowout. Stamkos logged his first three goals of the season in hat-trick fashion as the Lightning cruised past the Canadiens by a margin of 7-1.
Victor Hedman (goal; three assists) and Ryan Callahan (goal; assist) helped on the offensive end while Ben Bishop made 16 saves on 17 shots.
As for Stamkos, he now has eight hat tricks in his career, which ties him for the club record along with Martin St. Louis.
