We’ve got a pretty heavy nine-game schedule in the NHL tonight, so there will be plenty of hockey to watch as we get the holiday weekend started. While we’re waiting on game time, let’s check out some of the headline-grabbing stars and teams out there right now. Here’s the latest.
Bryan Little, C, Winnipeg Jets: The Blue Jackets are struggling, and the Jets are just the latest team to take advantage of that. Winnipeg too a win 4-2 on the strength of Little’s goal and assist, as well as Michael Hutchinson’s 32 saves on 34 shots.
Little scored just nine seconds into the first, while Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd tallied goals 31 seconds apart in the second.
Tyler Seguin, C, Dallas Stars: The Stars tallied a nice win against the Oilers last night, with Seguin accounting for two of the three goals in a 3-2 result. John Klingberg had the other, while notching an assist as well.
Kari Lehtonen posted 35 saves on 37 shots, while Cody Eakin made an alert puck-clearing play behind him with just 4:14 remaining in the third.
With the win, Dallas moves to 9-9-4 on the year.
Ryan Miller, G, Vancouver Canucks: Miller was the proud owner of last night’s only shutout, posting 20 saves in a 2-0 victory over the Devils.
His counterpart, Cory Schneider, performed admirably in the loss, saving 34 of the 36 shots he faced.
As for Vancouver, Alexandre Burrows and Shawn Matthias posted the goals here.
The Devils have now lost four of their last five games and are on a tough skid right now.
Frederik Andersen, G, Anaheim Ducks: With the Flames’ Jonas Hiller making his first start in Anaheim since leaving as a free agent, the Ducks had a point to prove. They did just that, posting a 3-2 win on the strength of Andersen’s 32 saves.
Matt Beleskey posted a goal and an assist in the victory, which brings the Ducks to 6-1-5 in their last 12 outings.
Kyle Palmieri scored the game-winning goal on a seemingly well-defended play.
