    • Eddie Lack allows one goal in loss to Dallas
      Eddie Lack stopped 27 of 28 shots in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to Dallas.

      Advice: Lack wasn't terrible tonight, but he will surely want Colton Sceviour's second period goal back. Sceviour put a soft backhanded shot on goal (from a terrible angle) and somehow beat the Canucks' goaltender. Dallas' second goal was scored into an empty net. Lack's record falls to 2-4-2 this season. He has a 2.59 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Kari Lehtonen makes 27 saves in shutout
      Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves in Dallas' 2-0 win over Vancouver on Wednesday.

      Advice: Lehtonen was named the game's first star for his effort. The 31-year-old set the tone early when he robbed Canucks' forward Radim Vrbata 36 seconds into the game. Lehtonen made several big saves throughout the evening to ensure Dallas would collect the two points tonight. He has now won three of his last four starts and has a 12-7-5 record with a 2.97 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Alex Edler plays game-high 28:53 in loss
      Alexander Edler played a game-high 28:53 in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to Dallas.

      Advice: The Canucks leaned heavily on Edler, but he finished the game with a minus-2 rating (Dallas' second goal was scored into an empty net). The 28-year-old also played big minutes on special teams. He logged 6:05 of ice time on the power play and 2:33 shorthanded. Edler has three goals and nine points in 31 games this season.

    • Colton Sceviour scores GWG vs Vancouver
      Colton Sceviour scored a goal in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Vancouver.

      Advice: Sceviour had no goals in the first 20 games of the season, but he's now scored twice in his last five games. Despite his recent production, the 25-year-old doesn't have any value in standard fantasy leagues. Sceviour has just six points in 25 games overall. Antoine Roussel added an empty net goal to ice the game for Dallas. Rotoworld.com

    • G Craig Anderson outstanding, posts shutout
      Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson turned in a gem in New Jersey Wednesday night during a 2-0 shutout of the Devils.

      Advice: Anderson made 34 saves. He nearly scored an empty-net goal, too. His shot from his own goal dribbled just wide to the right with 51.8 seconds remaining in the third period. With a second left in the third, Kyle Turris ended up with the empty-netter, his second goal of the game. Despite Turris' goals, however, it was the New Jersey offense that controlled most of the play in this one. The Sens were stuck in their zone for most of the game. The Devils (11-16-6) outshot Ottawa 34-16, but Anderson could not be beaten. It was his best performance of the season and improved his record to 7-8-4. His goals-against average is now 2.45 and his save percentage is .929. Rotoworld.com

    • Kari Lehtonen to start Wednesday night
      Kari Lehtonen will be the starting goalie for the Stars Wednesday night agains the Canucks.

      Advice: Lehtonen has not been performing to his abilities in 2014, but he will once again be in net for the Stars Wednesday, where he will try to improve his 3.10 goals-against-average and .902 save percentage. In 15 career games versus the Canucks, Lehtonen has a 7-7 record, 2.79 GAA, and .916 save percentage. In one game against Vancouver this season, he stopped 43 of 46 shots and earned the victory.

    • Jean-Gabriel Pageau dressing Wednesday night
      Jean-Gabriel Pageau will make his season debut for the Ottawa Senators Wednesday versus the New Jersey Devils.

      Advice: Pagaeu was just summoned by the Sens from the AHL on December 14th and will play in his first NHL game of the year Wednesday. He’s recorded 44 points in 46 AHL games for Binghamton so there is some upside for the 22-year old Ottawa native, but keep your expectations tempered as he has just six points in 37 career NHL games.

      Ryan Callahan contributed two assists in a 3-1 win against Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

      Advice: He hasn't scored a goal in his past nine games and he has four helpers during that time. Despite his recent cold spell, Callahan has been excellent for the Lightning this season. He has 11 goals and 25 points in 28 contests. Rotoworld.com

    • Coach Darryl Sutter calls out Jonathan Quick
      Kings coach Darryl Sutter needs more from goaltender Jonathan Quick.

      Advice: Quick stopped just 18 of 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday. Los Angeles had a 2-1 lead going into the third period, but Quick allowed three goals on seven shots in the final 20 minutes. "It's not the same team. It's quite a bit different team on the back end," Sutter said. "We've said it all along. We need great goaltending." It's also worth noting that the Kings fired just one shot on goal in the third period, so there's plenty of blame to go around for this collapse. Rotoworld.com

    • Sam Gagner records an assist in return
      Sam Gagner recorded an assist in a 2-1 overtime win against his old team, the Edmonton Oilers.

      Advice: Gagner was a healthy scratch on Saturday, but he was inserted back into the lineup for Tuesday's contest. He has an underwhelming 11 points in 30 games and the hope is his stint in the press box will spark him. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:13 am
    • Jonathan Quick unable to hold off Blues
      Jonathan Quick was beaten four times on 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Blues on Tuesday night.

      Advice: The defeat is the fourth in five games for Quick, who possesses strong peripherals despite a mediocre record. With the loss, his record now stands at 12-8-5 while his GAA is 2.24 and his save percentage is .926. He deserves better luck than he has received this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Vlad Tarasenko explodes in win over Kings
      Vladimir Tarasenko continued his breakout season Tuesday as he registered a hat trick and added an assist in the Blues' 5-2 win over Los Angeles.

      Advice: Tarasenko's four points bring his season total to 36 and place him just two off the NHL lead. Jaden Schwartz and Alexander Steen also found the back of the net for the Blues in the come-from-behind win. Rotoworld.com

      Tuesday, 4:38 pm
    • Sam Gagner looks to rebound
      Sam Gagner hopes to bounce back after spending Saturday's game in the press box.

      Advice: "That was kind of expected," Gagner said. "I don't think this one was as expected. It's obviously frustrating. I feel like I want to be out there helping the team get out of it. It is what it is. Back in next game, so I'll focus on moving forward here." Gagner has just three goals and 10 points in 29 contests in 2014-15. He's worth keeping an eye on, but we can't recommend picking Gagner up in standard leagues at this time. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonathan Quick beat by Toronto in shootout
      Jonathan Quick made 28 saves on 31 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto.

Leafs' forward James van Riemsdyk tied the game midway through the third period, and the Kings eventually lost in the shootout. Quick's record now falls to 12-7-5 on the season.

    • Bolts have three disallowed goals this season
      The Tampa Bay Lightning have had three goals waved off because of goalie interference.

      Advice: The Bolts had a goal waved off in Saturday's loss to Washington, after officials decided that Ryan Callahan had prohibited Braden Holtby from stopping a Steven Stamkos shot. "I feel that we are writing the book on it and I don’t know what the right answer is because it’s just a different explanation every time,’’ Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. "So it’s really, really frustrating. I don’t know, in my eyes only, how that is not a goal. I think something has to be taken into account, too, and take everybody out of the picture and see if the goaltender would have got back. I don’t think he would have, it doesn’t matter who was there." Rotoworld.com

    • Vladimir Tarasenko extends point streak
      Vladimir Tarasenko extended his point-streak to five games on Saturday.

      Advice: Tarasenko picked up an assist on Kevin Shattenkirk's first period goal. The 23-year-old has been a dynamic scorer this season. He has 17 goals and 32 points in 30 games this season. He has established himself as one of the best young forwards in the entire NHL. If you own Tarasenko's right in your fantasy league, you probably shouldn't let him go. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:14 am
    • Jonathan Quick to start on Sunday
      Jonathan Quick is expected to start on Sunday versus Toronto.

      Advice: Quick was the first goalie off the ice in practice on Saturday and that is usually the first sign. Combine that with backup Martin Jones giving up six goals on only 20 shots Friday in Montreal, and then it looks like a no-brainer to start Quick. Quick has a 12-7-4 record with a 2.13 GAA and a .931 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Kari Lehtonen escapes with 4-3 win vs. Devils
      Kari Lehtonen backstopped the Stars to a 4-3 win with 28 saves against the Devils on Saturday night.

      Advice: It has not been an easy season for the Finnish netminder. The Stars have not been good in their own zone, nor have they been good at controlling the pace of play, though it was a different story in this game. Lehtonen has a 3.10 goals-against average and .902 save percentage on the season, rates that rank him 39th and 40th, respectively, in the NHL. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 8:52 pm
    • Sam Gagner to be scratched on Saturday
      Sam Gagner will miss his first game of the season as a healthy scratch Saturday night as BJ Crombeen fills in.

    • Tarasenko could shine on birthday
      If you are one of those fantasy owners who believe NHLers play better on their birthday, then make sure you have Vladimir Tarasenko active on Saturday.

      Advice: Tarasenko, who turns 23 Saturday, doesn't need the birthday push to succeed. He has been terrorizing NHL goalies all season. All the same, he migh have a little extra jump against the Avs' Saturday night. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 11:26 am
    • Lehtonen gets start Saturday v Devils
      Kari Lehtonen will get the start in goal for the Stars when the face off against the Devils Saturday night.

      Advice: He has not been very good as of late and was pulled in his last start against Winnipeg after allowing three goals on just 17 shots. Start him at your own peril. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 10:00 am
    • Derek Dorsett questionable Saturday
      Derek Dorsett is questionable for Saturday's game with the Rangers as he missed practice on Friday for personal reasons.

      Advice: Dorsett would be looking forward to this game as he played for the Rangers last season and was dealt to Vancouver in the off-season for a third round pick. Dorsett has 66 penalty minutes which is good for third in the NHL and he has four goals and 10 points to boot so he has some nice fantasy value in pools that use the penalty minutes category. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:15 am
    • Scottie Upshall skates, unlikely for Friday
      Scottie Upshall (ankle) took part in a full practice with the Panthers on Thursday.

      Advice: "After being out a couple weeks it's nice to be back in the mix. I'm feeling good," Upshall said. "I think everyone is happy with my progression. I just need a couple of skates to get the wind under me again and get the legs going." Coach Gerard Gallant said it was unlikely that Upshall would play Friday, but he appears to be nearing a return to the lineup. He hasn't played since Nov. 24. Rotoworld.com

    • Anton Volchenkov to return on Tuesday night
      Anton Volchenkov will return to action on Tuesday night after missing a game to a lower body injury.

      Tuesday, 6:04 pm
    • Kari Lehtonen gets the start against Winnipeg
      Kari Lehtonen will get the start against Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

      Advice: "Every game's important for us right now," Coach Ruff said. Dallas sits eight points out of the second Wild Card, and it doesn't help that Lehtonen is having the worst season of his career. He's sporting a .904 save percentage and 3.03 GAA, significantly worse than his career .916 save percentage and 2.53 GAA. Rotoworld.com

      Patrik Elias (groin) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

      Advice: The move is retroactive to Dec. 6 and was likely made so that the Devils could call up Reid Boucher. The Devils have a number of forwards on the sidelines right now, which has created opportunities for Tuomo Ruutu and recently signed Scott Gomez, among others. Rotoworld.com
