There’s just one game on the NHL schedule today, but after all the intense hockey activity over the past couple of days, we could use a bit of a breather. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the notable players out there and see who’s making headlines across the league. Here’s the latest.
Derick Brassard, C, New York Rangers: The Rangers continued their dominance against the Flyers yesterday in the early game, posting a 5-2 win over Philly at the Garden.
Brassard pumped in two goals, while Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller each had a goal and an assist to round out the game’s trio of stars.
New York has won all three games against Philadelphia this year by a combined score of 10-2, and out-shot them in this one 35-23.
Ben Bishop, G, Tampa Bay Lightning: The three-game home-stand for the Lightning turned out to be pretty good, as they recorded victories in each one. Bishop was on his game for this one, logging a 26-save effort in the 4-1 victory yesterday over the Senators.
Ryan Callahan and Alex Killorn each had a goal and an assist, with Killorn logging the go-ahead score early in the third. The team never looked back after that.
Tampa Bay moves to 16-6-2 with that win, while the Sens fall to 10-9-4 and have lost five of their last seven.
Thomas Greiss, G, Pittsburgh Penguins: The Penguins took care of business against the Hurricanes last night at PNC Arena, and the result was a 3-2 win for Pittsburgh. Greiss stopped 32 of 34 shots in the game, while defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Robert Bortuzzo each posted a goal in the victory. It was a nice lift for the Penguins, who were without Kris Letang for this one. He was a scratch due to a lower-body injury.
Tommy Wingels, C, San Jose Sharks: In last night’s most high-scoring game, the Sharks poured in six goals against their in-state rival Ducks, coming away with a 6-4 victory in San Jose. Wingels registered four points in the win (goal; three assists), while Logan Couture scored twice. On the other side, Corey Perry had two goals and an assist of his own.
The win brings the Sharks to 11-10-4 on the year; they’ve won both games against the Ducks so far this year. Meanwhile, the Ducks fall to 14-6-5.
