  • Frederik Andersen will go against Chicago
    Frederik Andersen will get his 17th start of the season Friday night against Chicago.

  • Coyle wants to be a presence physically
    Charlie Coyle has upped his physical game of late.

    Advice: He has amassed 29 hits in the past 10 games after he was credited with 11 in his first 11 outings. "You've just got to be able to flip the switch. That's something I definitely want to do," Coyle said. "It's something you can work on, too. Just be a big body out there and a big presence physically. Doesn't mean always fighting or anything, but just to be a force out there and give defensemen a tough night and be hard to push around. That's what I'm striving for." At 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds, Coyle has the size to be a punishing forward and he has the skill to produce as well. It just hasn't all come together yet. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:27 am
  • Erik Johnson (head) might return Saturday
    Erik Johnson (head) may be back in the lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He missed Wednesday's game against Chicago, but he's improved since then. Johnson was injured on Tuesday when he took a hit to the head from Arizona's Martin Hanzal. The good news is that he wasn't concussed on the play. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:10 am
  • Tomas Jurco is sparking offensively
    Tomas Jurco has collected two goals and five points in his past five games.

    Advice: He had no goals and two assists in his previous 14 appearances. "I'm trying to play a little harder," Jurco said. "There were a couple of things I changed, but I think it's just the puck is going in for all of us, my teammates and me, and it wasn't before. When I passed before, the puck didn't go in. I just have to keep doing whatever I'm doing right now, and hopefully, it will continue to go well." Unfortunately, now that Pavel Datsyuk is back in the lineup, Jurco got bumped to the fourth line with Luke Glendening and Drew Miller. If he keeps producing despite limited minutes then he could get a promotion. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:49 am
  • Josh Gorges (knee) hopes to play against Habs
    Josh Gorges (knee) participated fully in Thursday's practice, but it isn't clear if he'll be back in the lineup on Friday when the Sabres host his former Montreal teammates.

    Advice: "I have to be smart, and if I do come back and play, first of all I don't want to put my team in jeopardy," Gorges said. "If I'm not effective, I'm only hurting my team. At the same time I have to make sure I don't go too early where I'm out for another two or three weeks again, which is counterproductive. As much as I want to be back, we've got to be smart at the same time." Gorges is itching to play and he would like to be ready to go by Saturday's game in Montreal. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:40 am

  • Frederik Andersen to play against Calgary
    Frederik Andersen will get his 16th start of the season Tuesday night against Calgary.

    Advice: A rematch of Nov. 18th's matchup, Anaheim will probably prefer to earn the second point in this one. And they're in luck as Calgary has won just once in their past 28 visits to Anaheim, going 0-13-5 since the last victory in January of 2004. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: With Stephen Weiss returning the Detroit lineup, Clearly will be a healthy scratch.

Keith Yandle was the only Coyote who was able to beat Andersen tonight. The 25-year-old is 9-2-4 with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage.

  • Cam Ward makes 36 saves in loss to Kings
    Cam Ward stopped 36 of 39 shots in Carolina's 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Ward was busier than his counterpart in goal Jonathan Quick. Ward did come up with some key saves in the game but it wasn't enough to pull off the upset. The 30-year-old has lost three of his last four starts but that isn't all his fault. Carolina will struggle to string wins together this season which makes Ward a poor play in fantasy leagues. Ward is 6-6-1 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:25 pm

    Thursday, 12:59 pm
  • Sens' Chris Phillips has a nagging injury
    Chris Phillips is dealing with an undisclosed injury that could keep him out of Thursday's game.

    Advice: The veteran defenseman left practice early on Wednesday due to a nagging ailment. If he can't play then Patrick Wiercioch will probably take his place. Phillips should be considered questionable at this time. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:45 am

  • Charlie Coyle skates between Vanek and Zucker
    Charlie Coyle centered a line between Thomas Vanek and Jason Zucker during Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: "(The Coyle line) have to be good checkers. They have to be strong defensively. But obviously, we want that line to go out and create offense for us," said coach Mike Yeo. "We want three lines we can really count on to go out and bring offense to us, and we think that gives us the opportunity. We like the idea of (Coyle's) speed and skill with Thomas, and we wanted an offensive dynamic." Coyle has produced two goals and nine points in 17 games this campaign. Rotoworld.com

    Wednesday, 7:31 am
  • Cam Ward wins despite shaky effort vs. Stars
    Carolina goalie Cam Ward allowed four goals on 27 shots Tuesday, but was bailed out by his teammates to earn a 6-4 win in Dallas.

    Advice: Ward's play has actually been great in recent weeks, as this outing ended a streak of seven games in which he had allowed two or fewer goals, so he can be forgiven for his struggles on this night. After a disastrous start to the year, his record now stands at 6-5-1 while his 2.57 GAA and .903 save percentage are a little more respectable. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:49 am
  • Frederik Andersen makes 16 saves in SO loss
    Frederik Andersen stopped 16-of-19 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

    Advice: Andersen let a couple of seeing-eye points shots get by him this game as the Flames got their scoring touch in the third period. After starting red-hot, the second year goalie has allowed three goals or more in each of his last four starts and has failed to earn his team a win over that stretch. He still holds a nice 7-2-1 record with an outstanding 2.13 goals against average to go with a .920 save percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:35 pm
  • Cam Ward will start in Dallas on Tuesday

    Tuesday, 4:49 pm
  • Frederik Andersen is expected to play Tuesday
    Frederik Andersen will start for Anaheim against Calgary on Tuesday.

    Advice: Andersen got off to a great start this season, but he's allowed three or more goals in each of his last three appearances. He'll try to bounce back while facing the man he used to backup, Jonas Hiller. Rotoworld.com
