We’ve got five games on the NHL schedule this evening, which is a relatively light slate compared to yesterday. That said, these matchups should make for some great hockey viewing. Let’s check out our daily wrap-up before we get set for those games.

Evgeny Kuznetsov, C, Washington Capitals: The Capitals entered last night’s game with their first two-game losing streak of the year in tow. They were able to reverse that trend, however, with a 3-2 win over the Bruins at TD Garden.
Kuznetsov logged a goal and an assist with four shots, while net-minder Braden Holtby posted 25 saves.
The Capitals are 29-7-3 on the season so far and 1-1-1 on their five-game road trip.

NHL News: Player News and Updates for 1/6/16


Jonathan Huberdeau, LW, Florida Panthers: The Panthers are cooking right now, and with last night’s victory they’ve extended their franchise-record win streak to 10 games.
Huberdeau put up a goal and an assist in the 5-1 win over the Sabres at First Niagara Center, as did Corban Knight.
Roberto Luongo was solid in net with 31 saves on 32 shots.
Florida is now 24-12-4 on the season and has won 16 of their last 19 games overall.

Derek Stepan, C, New York Rangers: The recently-struggling Rangers showed some life last night against the Stars at Madison Square Garden, posting a 6-2 victory.
Stepan scored twice, Rick Nash had three assists and Jayson Megna put up a goal and a helper. All three were together on a line and played very well.
Henrik Lundqvist had allowed 27 goals in his previous eight starts, but gave away just two here on 23 shots.
The Rangers are 22-14-4 on the year.

Artemi Panarin, LW, Chicago Blackhawks: The Blackhawks were down 2-0 last night against the Penguins at Consol Energy Center, but battled back to take a 3-2 overtime victory.
Panarin logged a pair of goals, and Jonathan Towes also scored. Panarin has scored 13 times in his first 41 NHL games.
Chicago has won four straight and sits at 24-13-4. The Pens are 19-15-5 thus far.
