  • Kari Lehtonen allows five goals in loss
    Kari Lehtonen allowed five goals on 34 shots in Friday's loss to Minnesota.

    Advice: The loss snaps Lehtonen's three-game winning streak. The 31-year-old's numbers have been very disappointing this season, but a lot of that has to do with the team in front of him. He has a 9-5-5 record with a 3.03 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. Lehtonen is still a solid goaltender and he should be able to turn his season around.

    Advice: The Stars were down 3-0 in this game before they scored four unanswered goals.

    Ben Scrivens made 37 saves in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to St. Louis.

    Advice: The Oilers were outshot 41-16 in the game, but still managed to salvage a point. Scrivens was busy and he managed to keep things close. The 28-year-old is 4-9-2 with a 3.38 goals-against-average and a .888 save percentage. He shouldn't be your number one goaltender in fantasy.
    Today, 9:14 pm
  • Jake Allen picks up seventh win of season
    Jake Allen made 13 saves on 16 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win against Edmonton.

    Advice: Allen wasn't very busy tonight. The Blues outshot the Oilers 41-16 in the game, but Edmonton still managed to gain a point in the standings. Allen is 3-1-1 in his last five starts, and now has an overall record of 7-2-1 this season. Even if the Blues bring in Martin Brodeur, Allen should get a nice fantasy boost with the injury to Brian Elliot.
    Today, 9:10 pm

  • Nick Bonino picks up three assists in win
    Nick Bonino registered three assists in Vancouver's 5-0 win over Columbus.

    Advice: This game was closer than the score would indicate. The Canucks had a 1-0 lead heading into the second intermission, but added four goals in the third period.

  • Kari Lehtonen gets the start against the Wild
    Kari Lehtonen will get the as the Stars take on the Wild on Friday night.

    Advice: While not a must-win in a traditional sense, there's no doubt that the Stars need to beat Minnesota on Friday night. Preferrably in regulation. The Jets hold the second Wild Card spot with 27 points, the Wild have 24, while the Stars have 22. Winning helps a lot of problems dicipate.
    Today, 4:12 pm

    Advice: Beauchemin has been placed on the injured reserve list as a result. He sustained the injury while blocking a shot during Tuesday's game. The Ducks acquired Eric Brewer to help fill the void during Beauchemin's absence.

  • Darcy Kuemper will get the nod Friday
    The Minnesota Wild will start Darcy Kuemper on Friday.

    Advice: Kuemper started on Wednesday, but was pulled after allowing four goals on 10 shots, so Wild coach Mike Yeo is showing Kuemper some faith with this call. "He's a young kid who is proving himself," Yeo said. "I said that from the start of the year, there's going to be ups and there’s going to be downs. We'll keep working on him." Kuemper has a 2.26 GAA and .911 save percentage in 17 games this season.

    Francois Beauchemin's upper-body injury has been confirmed to be related to his hand.

  • Blues will start Jake Allen on Friday
    Jake Allen will play between the pipes on Friday.

    Advice: That's to be expected as Allen's the Blues' de facto number one goaltender while Brian Elliott is sidelined. Allen has a 2.12 GAA and .920 save percentage in nine games this season.
    Today, 11:44 am
  • Francois Beauchemin not likely to play Friday
    Francois Beauchemin (upper body) is doubtful Friday.

    Advice: Beauchemin's hand is likely the problem as he appeared to be struck by the puck in that area during Tuesday's game. He left that contest before its conclusion.

  • Kevin Connauton heads to the press box
    Kevin Connauton will be a healthy scratch on Friday.

    Advice: Connauton was claimed by Columbus Blue Jackets on Nov. 18 after Dallas put him on waivers. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues.

  • Scott Gomez continues to skate with Devils
    Scott Gomez is still skating with the Devils.

    Advice: Gomez took part in New Jersey's training camp, but he didn't secure a contract with the squad. He's stuck around in hopes that they would eventually work something out, but we're now a quarter of the way through the season and nothing's happened yet.

  • Jake Allen ready to carry the ball for Blues
    Jake Allen will see the majority of the starts with Brian Elliott sidelined.

    Advice: That is unlikely to change even if the Blues sign Martin Brodeur and Allen feels ready for the opportunity. "Just another game," Allen said referring to Friday's start against Edmonton. "I don't feel any different than if Ells was here. It's another game, with the same group of guys in front of me. I get to play a couple more games, that's the positive. The negative is that Ells is out. He's a big part of our team and hopefully he gets back soon."
    Today, 7:39 am
  • Marc Methot close, still no set timetable
    Marc Methot (back/hip) may be back in the lineup soon, but there's no timetable in place.

    Advice: "For me, still, the word is patience," coach Paul MacLean said. "The positive thing is he's gone consecutive days (in practice) where nothing has happened to set him back." Methot hasn't played yet this season because of a backside injury and the Senators will have to demote someone to get him on the roster.

  • Tyler Seguin alters mentality, shoots more
    Tyler Seguin has been looking to shoot more this season and it's paid off.

    Advice: "My mentality has been a bit different," Seguin said. "I feel like I've always been looking to pass. This year, I've been looking to shoot it most of the game." He sits first in the league with 17 goals and he's taken a whopping 85 shots, which ranks him third in the NHL. Seguin is 12 shots behind co-leaders Claude Giroux and Alex Ovechkin.
    Yesterday, 3:11 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper pulled in loss to Kings
    Darcy Kuemper allowed four goals on 10 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Los Angeles.

    Advice: Kuemper surrendered all four goals in the first period before being pulled for Niklas Backstrom. The 24-year-old got off to a strong start this season but he's come down to earth recently. He is now 9-7-0 with a 2.26 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage. He's still the goalie to own in Minnesota.
    Wednesday, 8:49 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper returns against Kings
    Darcy Kuemper will return Wednesday night to take on the Kings.

    Advice: Kuemper caught a rare night off on Tuesday as Niklas Backstrom got the nod. The youngster has allowed just 29 goals through is first 16 games.

  • Taylor Hall scores in loss to Stars
    Taylor Hall buried his eighth goal of the season as part of Tuesday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: The talented winger has been one of the few bright spots for a putrid Edmonton team this year since he has put of 13 points in 16 contests in total. Defensive forward Boyd Gordon also scored for Edmonton in the losing effort.
    Tuesday, 8:51 pm
  • Kari Lehtonen continued mini-streak Tuesday
    Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen was excellent Tuesday night as he blocked 35 of 37 shots in a 3-2 defeat of Edmonton.

    Advice: After a disastrous streak that saw Dallas fail to record a home win for quite some time, Lehtonen has now recorded three straight victories. His 9-5-4 record hides his unsightly 2.93 GAA and .908 save percentage.
    Tuesday, 8:44 pm
  • Jake Allen and Blues cough up lead
    Jake Allen suffered a loss after allowing two goals on 17 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shutout defeat at the hands of the Senators.

    Advice: Allen entered the game midway through the second period after starter Brian Elliott suffered a lower body injury and was handed a 2-0 lead that he and his teammates ultimately coughed up. The loss drops his record to 6-2-1 on the year with a 2.12 GAA and a .920 save percentage.
    Tuesday, 8:16 pm
  • Kari Lehtonen gets the start against Edmonton
    Kari Lehtonen will get his 19th start through Dallas' first 23 games on Tuesday night against Edmonton.

    Advice: With a win, and some help in the standings, Dallas can quickly vault themselves back into Wild Card contention as they sit just four points out of the second slot coming in. Not a bad team to get your third straight win over.
    Tuesday, 2:49 pm
  • Taylor Hall's frustration levels are high
    Taylor Hall admitted that he's probably never been this frustrated before since joining the Oilers.

    Advice: "We're frustrated, the fans are frustrated, I think everyone is," Hall said. "It's on us, that's about all you can say. It sucks. It sucks for us, it sucks for the fans, for the organization, but we're going to have to make it through. We try and regroup as best we can. It's our fault as players and we're going to have to make up for that." Hall's speaking like a good soldier there, but is it really his fault? Aside from suffering some injuries along the way, he's pretty much been everything the Oilers could have hoped for and they have been completely unable to build a team around him. The Oilers are labeled as a rebuilding team, but for Hall that process is already in its fifth season. Hall also firmly stated that he doesn't want to see coach Dallas Eakins fired.

  • Jake Allen stops 28 shots in win vs. WPG
    Jake Allen stopped 28 of 30 shots in St. Louis' 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Sunday.

    Advice: Allen has now won five of his last six starts. The 24-year-old has been solid this season, but his upside is limited because he and Brian Elliot share the workload in goal for the Blues. If Elliot ever went down to injury, Allen's fantasy value would spike significantly. Allen is now 6-2-0 this season.
    Sunday, 4:32 pm
  • Jake Allen expected to start on Sunday
    Jake Allen is likely to get the start in goal for St. Louis on Sunday.

    Advice: The Blues take on the Winnipeg Jets after playing in Ottawa Saturday when Brian Elliott got the start between the pipes so it's only natural that Allen goes again on Sunday. Allen is 5-2-0 this season with a 2.00 GAA and a .922 save percentage. Start him if you can.
    Sunday, 8:30 am
  • Tyler Seguin scores league-leading 15th goal
    Tyler Seguin scored his league-leading 15th goal of the season in Dallas' 5-4 win over Los Angeles on Saturday.

    Advice: Seguin received a pass from Stars' goaltender Kari Lehtonen and he scored to make it 4-0 for Dallas. Seguin is currently on pace to score 56 goals this year. He has 26 points in 21 games. He is an elite fantasy option in all leagues.
    Sunday, 8:19 am
  • Ben Scrivens awful in blowout loss to Chicago
    Ben Scrivens had a night he’d like to forget in the Oilers’ 7-1 loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday.

    Advice: Scrivens played 2:45 into the second period before being pulled in favor of Viktor Fasth. Scrivens gave up five goals on 13 shots to blow up his goals-against to 3:35 and save percentage to .887. He has given up five goals in two straight starts. Fasth made 15 saves on 17 shots in relief and has a 3.37 goals-against and .890 save percentage this season.

  • Lehtonen, Stars bend, but don't break in win
    Kari Lehtonen blocked 37 of 41 shots as the Stars escaped with a 5-4 win over the Kings on Saturday night.

    Advice: Dallas jumped out to a 4-0 lead by early in the second period, then it became the Kings show from that point forward. Los Angeles only got within one goal once, at 10:44 of the third period, but it seemed as if the Stars were destined to blow this game. Lehtonen is a dicey bet until the Stars figure out how to hold onto pucks more and defend in their own zone. He has a 2.98 goals-against average and .906 save percentage.
    Saturday, 8:18 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper gives up two in loss
    Darcy Kuemper gave up two goals on 28 shots in the Wild’s 2-1 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

    Advice: Both goals came in the second period, less than five minutes apart. Kuemper hit a little rough patch a few weeks ago, but he has found his rhythm again. He hasn’t given up more than two goals since Nov. 8. Kuemper sports a 2.03 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.
    Saturday, 7:20 pm
  • Kuemper to start v Bolts Saturday night
    Darcy Kuemper will get the start against Tampa Saturday night.

    Advice: Not exactly a shock. Kuemper started very strong this season, had a bit of a swoon but has righted the ship in recent games. He is coming off an impressive 37-save, 3-2 win over Philly. Keep riding him.
    Saturday, 11:05 am
  • Lehtonen to get the start v Kings Saturday
    Look for Kari Lehtonen to get the start against Los Angeles Saturday night.

    Advice: He rebounded Thursday night against a weak Arizona team stopping 26 shots in a 2-1 win after allowing 10 goals in less than two games earlier in the week. With Lehtonen you are always rolling the dice. Start him if you need him, though.
    Saturday, 10:35 am
  • Oshie hopes to rekindle Stastny chemistry
    T.J. Oshie hopes to rekindle chemistry he has had in the past with Paul Stastny.

    Advice: The two played together on the U.S. Olympic Team in Sochi but had some issues clicking when playing together for the first time in St. Louis on Thursday. They were a combined minus six in a 4-1 loss to Montreal Thursday night. Despite the minus rating, Oshie thinks he and Stasnty should get another chance to play together. "I thought we played really well," Oshie said. "We fed off each other really well. Stas is an easy guy to play with because he's always working to get open, always working to make the next play." It will be interesting to see if Blues' coach Ken Hitchock sees it the same way.

  • Kevin Connauton makes Blue Jackets debut
    Kevin Connauton made his Columbus debut on Friday.

    Advice: Connauton was claimed off waivers Tuesday from Dallas after picking up two assists in eight games with the Stars. He was a minus-one on Friday with no points. He has little-to-no fantasy value.
    Saturday, 5:15 am
  • Dougie Hamilton returned to action on Friday November 21.
    Saturday, 12:02 am
  • Connauton, Calvert, Skille all in vs. Bruins
    Kevin Connauton, Matt Calvert and Jack Skille are all in Friday night against Boston.

    Advice: Connauton seems to be replacing Tim Erixon while Calvert and Skille will wing Alexander Wennberg on the Blue Jackets' third line. Looks like Coach Richards is still trying to find who give his team the best chance to win each night.
    Friday, 3:01 pm
  • Oilers put Taylor Hall on second line
    The Edmonton Oilers have moved Taylor Hall to their second line.

    Advice: Hall will play alongside Leon Draisaitl and Teddy Purcell. The Oilers are trying to shake things up after dropping two straight games. Hall should be able to produce on the second line, which he probably won't be on for very long anyways, so we're not worried about this demotion.
    Friday, 7:49 am
  • Kevin Connauton isn't likely to play Friday
    Kevin Connauton will probably be a healthy scratch on Friday.

    Advice: Columbus claimed Connauton off of waivers from Dallas on Tuesday. He has two assists in eight games this season.

    Thursday, 8:51 pm
  • Darcy Kuemper sensational in Wild win
    Darcy Kuemper backstopped the Wild to a 3-2 win over Philadelphia on Thursday night by making 37 saves on 39 shots.

    Advice: Kuemper is keeping up with his phenomenal start and is a reliable option in Minnesota's net. He has a 9-5 record with a 2.03 goals against average and .918 save percentage. Kuemper let Claude Giroux tie the game on Thursday with just three and a half minutes remaining in the third period, but Jason Zucker's last-minute goal propelled the WIld to their fourth straight victory.
    Thursday, 8:27 pm
  • Jake Allen unable to help Blues in Montreal
    Jake Allen stopped 26 of 30 in Thursday night's 4-1 loss to Montreal, his first loss in nearly a month.

    Advice: Allen drops to 5-2 with a .922 save percentage and 2.00 goals against average. After allowing more than two goals just once in his first four appearances this season, Allen has allowed at least three goals in his past three starts.
    Thursday, 7:35 pm

  • Ben Scrivens stops 26 shots in Oilers' loss
    Goalie Ben Scrivens made 26 saves in the Edmonton Oilers' 5-4 loss to the visiting Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night.

    Advice: So Scrivens' goals-against average has now shot up to 3.09 from 2.94. His save percentage .895. His record dropped to 4-8-1 and his popularity as a fantasy-league goalie has decreased. The Oilers just can't win enough. Same old story.
    Wednesday, 8:17 pm
  • Ben Scrivens expected to start vs. Canucks
    Ben Scrivens will be in net for Edmonton on Wednesday versus Vancouver.

    Advice: Scrivens will be between the pipes for a third consecutive start for the Oilers where he'll face off against Ryan Miller and the Canucks. Scrivens is seeking his fifth win on the year to go along with a 2.94 goals-against-average and .899 save percentage.
    Wednesday, 4:20 pm
  • Francois Beauchemin likely to return Thursday
    Francois Beauchemin is likely to draw back into the lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: If he does return then he'll probably be paired with Hampus Lindholm again. Beauchemin hasn't played since Nov. 7 because of the mumps.

  • Dougie Hamilton (flu) skips practice Wed.
    Dougie Hamilton missed practice on Wednesday because of the flu.

    Advice: The Bruins don't play again until Friday, so he has some to recover. Hamilton, who has 11 points in 20 games this season, should be consider day-to-day for the time being.
    Wednesday, 1:27 pm
  • Jake Allen will start Thursday at Montreal
    Jake Allen will start Thursday's game in Montreal.

    Advice: He has won his last four outings, while allowing six goals in his past two appearances. Allen owns a 5-1-0 record along with a .933 save percentage and a 1.67 goals-against average this season.
    Wednesday, 10:03 am
  • Tyler Seguin continues scoring in loss to CAR
    Tyler Seguin buried a pair of goals for Dallas Tuesday, but they were not enough to prevent a 6-4 defeat at the hands of the Hurricanes.

    Advice: Seguin's 14 tallies on the year currently lead the NHL in that category while his 24 points place him third in the league behind Sidney Crosby and Jakub Voracek. Jamie Benn and Cody Eakin also scored for Dallas in the losing effort.
    Wednesday, 2:46 am
  • Kari Lehtonen chased by Hurricanes in loss
    Dallas goaltender Kari Lehtonen hit the showers early on Tuesday as he was replaced after allowing four goals on 16 shots in a 6-4 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Advice: Anders Lindback entered the game to play the final 25 minutes, but ceded two goals on just nine shots in the process. Lehtonen has lost three straight starts as the Dallas defensive coverage has struggled mightily of late. His record now stands at 6-6-4 on the year while his GAA of 3.04 and .903 save percentage are far worse than what was expected of him.
    Wednesday, 2:42 am
  • Kari Lehtonen gets the start against Carolina
    Kari Lehtonen will be between the pipes as Dallas hosts the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

    Advice: The Stars have more starts by not-Kari Lehtonens than wins at home, 3-1. What's more troubling however, is that Dallas has just one more win and three more points than Carolina. Lehtonen's .908 save percentage and 2.98 GAA is no sure thing to improve tonight.
    Tuesday, 5:45 pm
  • Blue Jackets claim waived Kevin Connauton
    The Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed Kevin Connauton on waivers from the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: Columbus has dealt with more than its fair share of injuries so far this season, so getting Connauton will provide the Blue Jackets with some much needed depth. He has two assists in eight contests in 2014-15.
    Tuesday, 9:16 am
  • Beauchemin isn't likely to play Tuesday
    Don't count on Francois Beauchemin playing on Tuesday despite his recovery from the mumps.

    Marc Methot (back/hip) skated alongside Erik Karlsson during Monday's practice.

    Advice: Assistant GM Pierre Dorion said Methot was listed as "day-to-day" and his return to the lineup will probably come once his conditioning improves. There's a chance that he could go to the minors first to get a game or two under his belt. Methot hasn't played in the regular season yet because of a backside injury.
