NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News
We’ve got an even half-dozen games to look forward to in the NHL tonight, and in the meantime there’s plenty to talk about from last night’s big schedule. With that in mind, let’s take our daily look around the league and see which players are making headlines right now.
Tyler Seguin, C, Dallas Stars: The Penguins were sitting pretty after the first period last night against the Stars with a 2-0 lead. That security evaporated over the next two periods, with Dallas scoring three unanswered goals to take a 3-2 victory.
Seguin notched the game-winner on a power play at 19:57 in the third; Jamie Benn and Antoine Roussel also scored for the Stars.
On the other side, Chris Kunitz posted a goal and an assist in the losing effort.

Braden Holtby, G, Washington Capitals: Things were wild right from the first period in yesterday’s Capitals-Devils matchup. The teams traded goals in the opener, emerging in a 2-2 tie after one. Holtby locked it down after that, though, and his teammates backed him up offensively. He made 26 saves on 28 shots in all for a 6-2 Capitals victory.
Matt Niskanen posted a pair of assists, with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin both notching goals.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, New York Rangers: The defending East champ Rangers were on a three-game losing skid heading into last night’s matchup against the Hurricanes, but were able to prevail in a shootout.
Lundqvist posted 29 saves on 30 shots, helping the team to a 2-1 win. Derick Brassard scored at 9:40 in the third to send it to overtime.
On the other side, Anton Khudobin took the tough-luck loss with 33 saves on 34 shots.
Clarke MacArthur, LW, Ottawa Senators: Despite being down 1-3 after one period against the Avalanche yesterday, the Senators found a way to come back and seal the win. Ottawa scored four unanswered goals in periods two and three, with the eventual game-winner coming at 11:43 from MacArthur. The final score was 5-3 in favor of the Sens.
On the other side, Nathan MacKinnon posted a pair of assists in the loss.
