NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
February 14, 2015
We’ve got a full day of NHL action ahead of us today, as there are 10 games on the upcoming schedule. Before we get settled in and check out all the matchups, let’s visit with some of the notable players and stats in the headlines today.
Marian Hossa, RW, Chicago Blackhawks: Hossa has been on quite the scoring surge lately, and the Blackhawks are reaping the benefits. He scored in his fourth straight game--and added an assist--as Chicago took care of the Devils 3-1 at United Center last night.
Brent Seabrook added two assists in the win, while Jonathan Toews also scored. Corey Crawford anchored the defense on 25 saves.
The Blackhawks are now 34-18-4 on the year.

Kari Lehtonen, G, Dallas Stars: The Stars got a stellar game from Lehtonen last night against the Panthers, cruising to a 2-0 victory. Lehtonen had 37 saves in the shutout--the 31st of his career. Jamie Benn scored and Vernon Fiddler added an assist to fill out the star honors.
It was Dallas’ third straight win, but the bad news is that they lost three players to injury. One of those was Tyler Seguin; he’ll get a reevaluation today.
Joe Pavelski, C, San Jose Sharks: The Sharks certainly needed an uplifting victory like this. Coach Todd McLellan got his 300th NHL coaching victory last night against the Coyotes in Glendale, a 4-2 affair that featured a hat trick from Pavelski. It was the fourth hat trick of his NHL tenure.
The Sharks are now 29-20-8 and ended a three-game losing streak. They’re in second in the Pacific right now.
Shawn Matthias, C, Vancouver Canucks: Not to be outdone, Matthias also logged a hat trick last night. His came against the Bruins in Vancouver, and was the fist of his career.
Vancouver came out on top 5-2 at Rogers Arena, with Radim Vrbata also adding a goal to help out.
Vancouver is now 31-20-3 on the season and has won two in a row for the first time since January 19.
