NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News
We’ve got just three games to look forward to in the NHL tonight, but in the meantime there’s plenty to talk about from last night’s packed schedule. With that said, let’s take our daily look around the league and see which players are making headlines right now.
Jaroslav Halak, G, New York Islanders: In the battle for New York last night, the Islanders came out on top with a convincing effort. Halak was the big star here, notching 40 saves on 43 shots during the 6-3 victory.
Kyle Okposo and John Tavares each pitched in with a goal and an assist. The Isles rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the second to score five unanswered goals and take control of the game for good.

Tyler Seguin, C, Dallas Stars: The Stars’ big-name players stepped up with some big efforts last night against the Blue Jackets. Seguin set the pace on a hat trick during Dallas’ 4-2 victory, while Jamie Benn managed a goal and three assists. It was a much-needed performance from both guys, as neither had a point in the first two games.
For the Jackets, Ryan Johansen notched a pair of goals but couldn’t help the team get their third win of the year.
Cory Schneider, G, New Jersey Devils: The Devils prevailed in a tight one against the Lightning last night, thanks mostly to Schneider. He posted 26 saves on 27 shots in the 2-1 win, giving the Devils three straight road wins to start this season.
Helping out was Mike Cammalleri, who snagged the game-winning goal at the 8:41 mark of the third. He also had an assist.
On the other side, Evgeni Nabokov managed 23 saves on 25 shots in the losing effort.
Tanner Pearson, LW, Los Angeles Kings: The defending champion Kings are getting all sorts of offense from all sorts of places. Tanner Pearson managed two goals (a career-high) and an assist in L.A.’s 6-1 win over the Oilers last night, with Tyler Toffoli adding a goal and a helper himself.
Defensively, Johnathan Quick was on point, allowing just one goal on 32 shots.
So far this year, Pearson leads the team with four goals, which is already more than he had all last season.
