Jack Hughes gets his 30th assist of the season and made history:

Elliotte Friedman talks goaltenders:

“YES and MSG Networks are partnering on a new venture that eventually could lead to a direct-to-consumer streaming service that offers the Yankees, Knicks, Rangers, Nets, Devils and Islanders on one platform.” [New York Post]

Seamus Casey assist:

“The vibe has been off all year for the Devils. Some of it is injuries; a lot of it is sloppy defense in front of porous goaltending. But it might also be the weight of expectations after last season’s breakout, when their speed and attention to detail allowed them to dictate play to opponents. That team hasn’t appeared in many games in the encore season. And that has to change, quickly.” [ESPN ($)]

“Monday’s Golden Knights-Kraken Winter Classic from the Mariners’ home field in Seattle averaged a combined 1.10 million viewers across TNT (1.03M) and truTV (76K), the smallest audience yet for the annual outdoor game. The previous low was 1.36 million for Blues-Wild in 2022, and no other game has averaged fewer than 1.7 million.” [Sports Media Watch]

“Should the NHL follow NBA and NFL’s lead and allow referees to explain calls to media?” [The Athletic ($)]
