There may have been ten games on the schedule last night, but it was hard to focus on anyone but Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl who put on a show against the Washington Capitals. The Oilers’ superstars each played more than 26 minutes—leading all players in the game—and carried the weight of the entire team to a win. With six games coming up tonight, we’ll keep track of all the minor moves right here.
- The Boston Bruins have recalled Anders Bjork again today, ahead of their Saturday night matchup against the St. Louis Blues. Bjork was given his first NHL opportunity of the season against the Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this week.
- Givani Smith has been recalled by the Detroit Red Wings after serving his one-game suspension in the AHL. The physical forward has four points in four games for the Grand Rapids Griffins, and was impressive in the preseason with Detroit.
- With Marco Scandella suffering an injury last night for the Buffalo Sabres, the team has recalled Will Borgen today to give them another option. The Sabres are back in action right away against the Red Wings, meaning if Scandella can’t go either Borgen or John Gilmour should be expected to enter the lineup.
