NHL Daily Table Setting

Catch Up on Today’s BIGGEST NHL Headlines

Shea Weber will eat your family

–          Weber to face NHL hearing following hit on Canuck
Last night Shea Weber was given an unsportsmanlike penalty after a boarding call on Vancouver’s Jannik Hansen. He will face the NHL on how he’ll be disciplined.

–           Jumbo Joe reaches milestone tonight in New Jersey
Joe Thornton and his Guppies will begin a six-game road trip in New Jersey tonight where he’ll play in his 1,000th career game. San Jose needs to get its act together, having dropped its last three game.  Maybe the captain’s milestone will fuel a surge.

–          Stewart brothers to meet in St. Louis tonight
The NHL has a history of brother-vs-brother, family-vs-family, match-ups. But tonight, in St. Louis, another one takes place. Anthony Stewart (Carolina) takes on his brother Chris (St. Louis); the two previously met while playing in the AHL.

–          Babcock and Red Wings tired of break want to play
Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings have had an odd schedule during their 4-0-0 start. They played back-to-back games but then have been inactive for the last four days. The team has joked that it’s like playing a college schedule- practicing during the week than playing on Friday and Saturday. Well tonight, hapless Columbus comes to the Joe.
