NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Latest News, Daily Schedule and More
October 12, 2015
After a slow Sunday of NHL action, we’ve got five games coming up this afternoon and evening. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the notable players who are out there in the headlines right now.
Tomas Plekanec, C, Montreal Canadiens: In last night’s only NHL matchup, we had a rookie goaltender battle going on at Canadian Tire Centre. Ottawa net-minder Mike Condon would get the victory with 20 saves, and Plekanec would add two goals on three shots for most of the offense in the 3-1 win.
Interestingly enough, Condon and Ottawa’s Matthew O’Connor were the first starting goaltender pair making their NHL debuts in the same game since October of 1967.
With the victory, the Canadiens move to 3-0-0, while the Sens fall to 2-1-0.

The Jets’ Tyler Myers is expected to take the ice this afternoon after exiting yesterday’s practice session a little early.
Columbus center Alexander Wennberg did not travel with the team to Buffalo for today’s game.
Wennberg is getting over a concussion sustained on Friday against the Rangers.
Blues winger Robby Fabbri is in danger of missing the final five games of the Blues’ road trip.
Fabbri is dealing with an upper-body injury after taking an elbow to the head on Saturday against Minnesota.
The Sabres’ Brian Gionta was able to return to practice yesterday, which is a good sign for his status moving forward.
Gionta is dealing with a lower-body injury that cost him the first two games of the season.
