NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
October 27, 2014
There are only a couple of games on the NHL schedule tonight, but those matchups should deliver some must-see television. While we’re waiting on game time, let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s in the headlines this morning.
Andrew Ladd, LW, Winnipeg Jets: No one was expecting an offensive showing from the Jets and Avalanche yesterday, so this low-scoring affair made perfect sense. Ladd posted a goal and an assist in the Jets’ 2-1 overtime win, which ended on Brian Little’s score with just 24.2 seconds left in the extra period.
Ondrej Pavelec logged 22 saves on 23 opportunities to anchor the defensive effort. The win brings Winnipeg to 3-5-0.

Tyler Toffoli, C, Los Angeles Kings: The Kings aren’t experiencing much of a Stanley Cup hangover. Toffoli was one of the main contributors in L.A.’s 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets yesterday, posting a goal and a trio of assists. Jeff Carter helped out with a goal and three helpers of his own, while Tanner Pearson notched two goals.
The win brings the Kings to 6-1-1 on the year. The win finishes up the first 6-0-0 home-stand in franchise history, and things are looking good for a Stanley Cup repeat so far.
Tommy Wingels, C, San Jose Sharks: The Anaheim Ducks came into their matchup against the San Jose Sharks yesterday riding high on a nice winning streak. The Sharks put a stop to that, however, breaking their own four-game losing run with a 4-1 win at Honda Center.
Wingels notched a power play goal in the third period, while Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski and Marc-Edouard Vlasic each scored as well. In net, Antti Niemi logged 33 saves on 34 shots. The Ducks’ lone goal came at the 14:53 mark of the third period, long after the game was in hand.
Scott Darling, G, Chicago Blackhawks: In his NHL debut, rookie net-minder Scott Darling was stellar against the Senators in an intense goalie battle. He logged 32 saves on 33 shots to guide Chicago to a 2-1 win over the Senators yesterday, halting the Blackhawks two-game losing skid.
On the other side, Craig Anderson was a busy guy, saving 43 shots but coming up on the short end of the tough-luck loss.
Brent Seabrook and Jonathan Toews scored for Chicago. It was Seabrook’s first and Toews’ second goals of the year.
