    Mike Smith made 25 saves during Arizona's 2-1 overtime win over Calgary on Friday night.

    Advice: After stopping 20 of 21 shots through the first 40 minutes of the game, Smith was hardly tested through the end of overtime. Which is good news for all involved.

  • Ekman-Larsson pushes Yotes past Flames in OT
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson pushed his Coyotes past the Flames in Friday's 2-1 overtime victory.

    Sven Andrighetto scored a goal in regulation and the game-winner in the shootout in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils.

    Advice: With the Canadiens down 2-0 in the second period, it was Andrighetto who got Montreal on the board. The 22-year-old has looked very good since he was called up from the minors last week. He's scored in back-to-back games and now has two goals in three games. He has a nice combination of speed and skill and could be a sneaky good fantasy play if he keeps skating on Montreal's second line with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:25 pm
  • Ference, Khaira out vs. Red Wings on Friday

    Tyler Kennedy will make his season and Devils debut Friday night against Montreal while skating on the fourth line.

  • Joni Ortio successfully clears waivers
    Joni Ortio went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: Ortio has potential so it wouldn't have been shocking if he was claimed, but he doesn't appear to be NHL ready. More to the point though, he wasn't getting playing time with Calgary, so the 24-year-old is better off in the minors for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:53 am
  • Dalton Prout used sparingly on Wednesday
    Though healthy, Dalton Prout logged only 8:32 minutes of ice time on Wednesday.

    Advice: That meant that Columbus had to lean heavily on its five other blueliners.
