November 7, 2015
We’ve got a packed schedule of NHL games coming our way on this Saturday, with 11 matchups on the slate. Before things get started, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the headlines.
Jakub Kindl, D, Detroit Red Wings: Kindl got to play the hero last night in the Hockey Hall of Fame Game at Air Canada Centre against the Maple Leafs. He scored 2:17 into overtime, giving his team a 2-1 victory.
This was Detroit’s third straight win. They now stand at 7-5-1 and have beaten Toronto (and former coach Mike Babcock) twice in two games this year.
The Leafs fall to 2-9-2.

Kyle Palmieri, RW, New Jersey Devils: The Devils proved to be too much for the defending champion Blackhawks last night at Prudential Center, taking the game 4-2 and dropping Chicago to 7-6-1 on the year.
Palmieri had a goal and an assist, as did Lee Stempniak and Travis Zajac. Cory Schneider put up 27 saves for the Devils, who move to 7-5-1 on the season.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, New York Rangers: The Rangers are now in first place in the Metropolitan Division, thanks to a 2-1 victory over the Avalanche at Pepsi Center.
Lundqvist made 29 saves in this one, while Ryan McDonagh provided a pair of assists. Avs goalie Reto Berra made 31 saves.
The Rangers are now 9-2-2 on the year. They’ve won their last four straight and are 6-0-2 in their last eight. The Avalanche fall to 4-9-1.
Ryan Getzlaf, C, Anaheim Ducks: Ducks center Getzlaf and winger Corey Perry were in a helpful mood last night. Each player came up with three assists, helping the Ducks to a 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets at Honda Center.
That makes three wins in a row for Anaheim, who move to 4-7-2 on the year.
Getzlaf needed this game; he was off to the worst beginning of his NHL tenure, with just one assist through eight appearances.
