      Advice: While the David Backes and Dmitrij Jaskin's goals to open the scoring were sick tips, Quick was beaten over the shoulder on stoppable shots by Kevin Shattenkirk and Jori Lehtera.

      Advice: After Barclay Goodrow drew four, yes four, Oilers to him at the offensive blue line, Goodrow sprung Couture into the zone where he released a deceptive cross-ice snapshot below the dot.

    • Antti Niemi allows three to Oil, still wins
      Antti Niemi did not have his best night, but stopping 25-28 shots the Oilers sent his way was good enough for the 4-3 victory.

      Advice: Niemi should have stopped each goal as none were through screens, tips, or via lasers. Quite simply, he didn't have a good game against a team who had scored three or more goals just twice in their previous 15 games. Just once in their previous nine. But a win is a win, as they say.

    • Ben Scrivens allows four in loss to Sharks
      Ben Scrivens did not have a good night, stopping just 26-30 shots in the 4-3 loss to San Jose on Thursday night.

      Advice: At some point you want to be forgiving because he's playing behind Edmonton's idea of defense, but he could have stopped each goal. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Scrivens is the worst starting goalie in hockey right now. 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
      Wednesday, 5:44 am
    • Ben Scrivens outstanding in overtime loss
      Ben Scrivens made a season high 42 saves but it wasn't enough as the Oilers fell 2-1 to Arizona on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Scrivens couldn't handle a laser beam shot from Oliver Ekman-Larsson with 0.3 seconds to go in overtime as Edmonton a heartbreaker. The Oilers' netminder really kept his team in the game during a second period where the Coyotes fired 27 shots his way. It has been a tough year all-around for the Oilers but Scrivens was certainly not to blame on this night. If you are starting an Oiler goalie you really must be desperate in any format. Rotoworld.com

      Ben Scrivens stopped 20 of 21 shots in Edmonton's 2-0 loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

    • Barclay Goodrow gets 14 penalty minutes
      Barclay Goodrow picked up 14 penalty minutes on Saturday.

      Advice: Goodrow had none through his first 15 games but was an agitator on Saturday against Nashville. "I like getting under their skin," Goodrow said.

    • 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

      Advice: Fasth allowed three goals on a dozen shots, including two goals in 44 seconds to open the second period, prompting his removal. Anaheim couldn't beat Scrivens, but the ENG still counts even if it wasn't Scrivens' fault. Rotoworld.com
