Hats off to Grabner, Rangers

What you need to know to start your NHL day

NHL.com @NHL

Michael Grabner had an empty feeling in the New York Rangers' 5-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday, but he wasn't complaining.

Grabner became the first Rangers player in the NHL's expansion era (since 1967-68) to score two empty-net goals in the same game. They completed the fifth hat trick (and first natural hat trick) of his NHL career. He's the first Rangers player to have a natural hat trick since Marian Gaborik did it on Jan. 31, 2010, at the Colorado Avalanche, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Grabner's three-goal game was the 28th hat trick in the NHL this season; that's the most through 395 games since 2010-11, when there were 33.

Preds Raise Over $95,000 Across Hockey Fights Cancer Initiatives

Predators Players, Staff, Fans Combine to Fight Cancer in November

by AJ Mazzolini @ajmazzolini / NashvillePredators.com

Hockey Fights Cancer Nights dotted the NHL schedule in the month of November as each franchise held fundraising nights to support the hunt for a cure. For the Nashville Predators, though, one day wasn't enough.

The Preds organization and the Nashville Predators Foundation raised nearly $100,000 in its largest single fundraising initiative ever during Hockey Fights Cancer Week. More than 125 volunteers came together to raise money and awareness during two home games before Thanksgiving, and Preds staff members also participated in community events outside the arena throughout the week.

"We're always asking people for financial donations, but to allow our staff to go volunteer and give time as well makes it even more meaningful," said Predators Senior Director of Community Relations Rebecca King. "It's something for our staff, too."
