We’re coming off a pretty good night of NHL hockey, and we’ve got more action on the way this evening. Before we settle in to today’s whopping 12-game set, let’s check in on some of the notable players out there and see what everyone’s up to.

Teddy Purcell, RW, Edmonton Oilers: The NHL has been playing for almost a month, and up until last night the Oilers didn’t have a road win. That changed when Boyd Gordon smacked one in to break a 2-2 tie in the third and give Edmonton their first win away from home at the expense of the Sabres.
Purcell logged a pair of points on two assists, while Iirko Pakarinen also scored. They kept Buffalo net-minder Michal Neuvirth busy with 52 shots on goal.

Niklas Kronwall, D, Detroit Red Wings: The Detroit defensemen were in full effect last night against the Devils. Kronwall led the way for his team, logging a goal and an assist in a 4-2 victory at Joe Louis Arena. Jakub Kindl also scored to help put the Red Wings up to a 7-3-4 record on the year.
Goalie Jimmy Howard made 15 saves in this one, allowing goals from Steve Bernier and Jordin Tootoo.

Andre Burakovsky, LW, Washington Capitals: Early in the second period, the Blackhawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead on the Capitals and it looked like all was lost. Then Washington stormed back on three straight goals to take a 3-2 victory and end their five-game skid.
Burakovsky posted a goal and an assist, while Matt Niskanen managed a pair of helpers himself.
The loss drops the Blackhawks to 6-5-1 on the year, even though they outshot the Caps 40-24. Washington is now 5-5-3.

Mike Smith, G, Arizona Coyotes: The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead on the Coyotes last night, but Arizona ended up prevailing in a shootout. Smith held strong after allowing a pair of early goals, posting a total of 37 saves on 39 shots. Sam Gagner and Mikkel Boedker logged scores in the shootout to give the Coyotes a 3-2 victory. He made 15 saves in the third and overtime, proving his strength down the stretch.
