We’ve got a five-game schedule coming up in the NHL tonight, but in the meantime there’s plenty for us fans to talk about. That said, let’s check out our daily wrap-up and see what’s happening with some of the notable players around the league.

Daniel Paille, LW, Boston Bruins: The Bruins have now won two games at home in two days, thanks in part to Paille. He logged a pair of goals last night against the Red Wings in a 5-3 win at TD Garden.
The goals completed a 4-0-1 stretch in the Bruins’ past five games. Niklas Svedberg made 36 saves in the victory.
Boston is now 33-22-10.

Eric Staal was the facilitator with four assists on the night.
The ‘Canes are now 25-32-7 while the Oilers fall to 18-37-11.

Adam Henrique, C, New Jersey Devils: The Devils won the Stanley Cup 20 years ago, and they celebrated in style last night against the Flyers at Prudential Center. Henrique put up two goals in the 5-2 victory, while Steve Bernier managed three assists.
Jersey is now 9-3-1 in their past 13 games at Prudential, and 2-1-0 on this current homestand.
