    Advice: Parise skated on a line with Mikael Granlund and Charlie Coyle. He might be able to return on Friday, but nothing has been decided yet.

    Joe Pavelski registered an assist in a 5-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pavelski has 12 goals and 21 points in 22 contests in 2015-16. It's not unreasonable to project him to reach the 40-goal and 80-point milestones this season, barring an injury. Today, 8:57 am
  • Carter maintains near point-per-game pace
    Jeff Carter recorded an assist in a 2-1 shootout loss Wednesday night.

    Ryan Reaves suited up in Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh.

    Advice: He played in just three of the Blues' previous 10 games. "He's had very much an up and down season, most of it based on health," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He's healthy now, he feels good. We've conditioned him. This is about as far as we can go with him. The rest is going to be in his court." The Blues have a couple of extra forwards so Reaves will have to battle for his playing time. Today, 7:54 am
  • Eric Staal records an assist Wednesday
    Eric Staal registered an assist in a 4-1 victory over Edmonton.

    Advice: Staal snapped a four-game point drought. He has 13 points in 21 contests, which is an underwhelming start by his standards. He's now on pace fall below his disappointing 54-point 2014-15 campaign. Even though he's only 31, Carolina has to keep his descent in mind should they wish to re-sign him. At this point his reputation might be more valuable than his current on-ice work. Today, 7:40 am
  • Duclair extends point streak to five games
    Anthony Duclair scored a goal in a 4-2 victory over Anaheim on Wednesday.

    Advice: Duclair is on a five-game point streak. He's been hot-and-cold so far this season, but it's averaged out to be a solid start to his rookie campaign as he has eight goals and 14 points in 21 contests. Today, 7:34 am

    Brent Burns picked up a goal and an assist in the Sharks' 5-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday.

    Advice: Burns is red-hot with goals in three straight games and 19 points in 22 overall. At this rate, he is going to push past his career high of 60 he had in last season's campaign. Patrick Marleau added a goal and an assist as well in a losing effort. The best part about the Sharks' effort tonight was their power-play which was confidently moving the puck all night. Yesterday, 10:25 pm
  • Sami Vatanen

    Advice: Vatanen was easily the best player on the ice for a Ducks team that was mainly outplayed for most of this game. The talented blue-liner now has five goals and 13 points in 23 games. Ryan Kesler scored the other goal for the Ducks in a losing cause. Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • G Anders Nilsson makes 23 saves in defeat
    Edmonton goalie Anders Nilsson, who allowed no more than a goal in each of his past two games, wasn't as fortunate Wednesday night.

On Tuesday, Edmonton coach Todd McLellan was quoted as saying: "Anders looks to be getting better every night." Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Nail Yakupov injures leg in awkward fall

    Advice: During a faceoff at center ice early in the second period, Yakupov and linesman Matt MacPherson got tangled up and each went down to the ice. Yakupov did not put any weight on his left leg while being helped to the Oilers dressing room at 2:22. The Oilers did not provide an update on Yakupov after the game. Yakupov, the No. 1 pick at the 2012 NHL Draft, had an assist on Benoit Pouliot’s first-period goal to end a seven-game point drought. He had not scored a goal since Oct. 18, a span of 16 games.

Getzlaf has had a slow start to the season by his standards but this explosion should help his owners. He has one goal and 13 assists for 14 points in 18 games now. Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Wild taking things 'slowly' with Zach Parise
    Zach Parise (knee) is expected to continue skating with Minnesota's skating and skills instructor this week.

    Advice: "We'll just take things slowly," coach Mike Yeo said. "We're not panicking here by any means. I was shocked that he was on the ice with us — well, not shocked knowing him, but we weren't sitting around thinking that he'd be in the lineup for us Wednesday." Parise was expected to be sidelined for a month, but he was skating again by the two and a half-week mark. He has already missed seven games and is doubtful to play in Minnesota's three games this week. Tuesday, 9:23 am
    Injured Reserve

    Although Edmonton fell to Washington in overtime Monday night, Anders Nilsson provided Edmonton with a silver lining.

    Advice: Nilsson turned aside 29 of 30 shots to hold the competition to a single goal for the second straight game. "Anders looks to be getting better every night," Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said. "He looks to be confident right now. You get a sense around the team that they feel good when he’s in net and they feel good about him and that’s a real positive sign." Nilsson has a 2.83 GAA and .908 save percentage in 10 contests. It wouldn't be surprising if he's back between the pipes on Wednesday against Carolina. Tuesday, 2:47 am
  • Oilers goalie Anders Nilsson excels in defeat
    Edmonton goalie Anders Nilsson turned away all but one of the 30 shots he faced in the Oilers' 1-0 loss to the Capitals in Washington Monday night.

    Advice: Nilsson appears to be the Oilers' first-string goalie these days and he did nothing Monday to change his status. He is 4-5-1 on the season and improved his goals-against average Monday to 2.83 and his save percentage to .908. Nilsson deserved a better fate but his teammates couldn't get any of their 33 shots past Washington goalie Braden Holtby. Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Anders Nilsson to face Washington Monday
    Anders Nilsson will be back between the pipes on Monday versus Washington.

    Advice: Nilsson, who has been seeing the majority of Edmonton's starts lately, has a 4-4-1 record with a .901 save percentage and a 3.04 goals-against average this campaign. Monday, 12:24 pm

    Zach Parise (knee) didn't skate Monday.

    Advice: Parise didn't look himself during Saturday's morning skate, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune.

    Injured Reserve
  • Tyler Ennis searching for more goals
    Tyler Ennis hasn't scored a goal in nine straight games.

    Advice: He has collected five assists during that span, but he has just three goals in 18 contests this season. Ennis has hit the 20-goal mark in each of the past two years, but consistency has never been a strong part of his game. Monday, 6:33 am
  • Joe Pavelski scores twice in comeback win
    Joe Pavelski scored two goals in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: The Sharks were down 3-1 in the third period when Pavelski got the comeback started. His goal at the 6:13 mark of the final frame cut Columbus' lead to 3-2. San Jose then got goals from Brent Burns and Brenden Dillon before Pavelski added an empty netter to finish things off. The 31-year-old has 12 goals and 20 points in 21 games this season. Sunday, 5:06 pm
  • Brent Burns scores twice on seven shots
    Brent Burns potted two goals in the Sharks’ 3-1 win against the Penguins on Saturday night.

    Advice: The benefit of owning Burns was encapsulated on this night as there aren’t many who can contribute like him. The roving blueliner also had seven shots on net, two penalty minutes and a plus-two rating. His 90 shots rank second in the league. Burns has seven goals and 16 points this season. Paul Martin had a goal and a helper in the win. Patrick Marleau picked up his 1,000th and 1,001st points with two helpers. Saturday, 7:11 pm
  • Report: Clarity for E. Staal by end of Nov.
    Eric Staal’s future could be much clearer by the end of the month.

    Advice: According to Damien Cox of Sportsnet, Staal and his agent are expected to hear from Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis by then. The ownership situation could play heavily into whether they try to re-sign him, or are forced to deal him. Staal, an unrestricted free agent this offseason, has four goals and 12 points in 19 games. Saturday, 6:47 pm
  • Reaves, Bortuzzo out vs. Detroit on Saturday
    Ryan Reaves and Robert Bortuzzo were scratched from Saturday's match with the Detroit.

    Advice: Unless you're in a deep reverse league, unfortunately neither Reaves nor Bortuzzo have offered much in the way of fantasy value. Reaves' contribution is 45 hits through 14 games. While Bortuzzo has 15 PIMs and 20 hits through 12 games. Saturday, 5:19 pm
  • Zach Parise (knee) is close to returning
    Zach Parise (knee) should be able to return within the span of a week.

    Advice: Parise has missed six straight contests due to a sprained knee ligament. He'll take part in Saturday's pregame warmups, but he won't participate in that contest. He hasn't taken contact yet and the warmups shouldn't provide any. So the question turns to when he'll resume practicing with the team and given his timetable, we assume it shouldn't be long now. Saturday, 8:14 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Anders Nilsson taking over the starters role
    Anders Nilsson is becoming the Oilers number one goaltender.

    Advice: Nilsson has started six of Edmonton's last eight games and has relegated Cam Talbot to the bench of late. He is 3-2-1 since the start of November with a 2.67 GAA and a .900 save percentage. He is becoming a good second goalie in deeper pools. Saturday, 4:09 am

  • Anders Nilsson takes loss against Chicago
    Anders Nilsson made 23 saves on 27 shots in the Oilers' 4-3 overtime loss to Chicago on Wednesday.

    Advice: While the numbers don't look great, he gave his team a chance to win this game against a very good Blackhawks squad. Nilsson is 3-4-1 with a 3.30 goals-against-average and .897 save percentage in eight appearances. He is in a time share with Cam Talbot at the moment and the Oilers are just hoping one of the goalies takes the reigns on the number one job. Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • Nail Yakupov: One Point Since McDavid Injury
    Nail Yakupov has recorded only one point in the five games since Oilers phenom Connor McDavid went down with an injury

    Advice: The much maligned Russian has lined up alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Benoit Puliot, then Mark Letestu in lieu of the young McDavid, with Matt Hendricks taking a recent run on the same line. The linemate support isn't there for the youngster to excel on his own. The drought may continue. Wednesday, 6:26 pm

    Advice: Burns has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He's off to a strong start overall with five goals and 14 points in 18 contests in 2015-16. That's good for sixth place among defensemen in the scoring race. Wednesday, 6:23 am

    Advice: He opened the scoring at the 42 second mark of the first period. Pavelski also picked up assists on second period goals by Melker Karlsson and Joe Thornton. He rounded out his evening with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and one blocked shot in just over 21 minutes of ice time. The 31-year-old has 10 goals and 18 points in 18 games this season. Tuesday, 6:52 pm
  • Anders Nilsson in net vs Chicago on Wednesday
    Anders Nilsson will be in net against Chicago on Wednesday.

    Advice: Nilsson owns a 3-4-0 record with 21 goals against and a paltry .902 save percentage in seven games so far this season, which shouldn't inspire much confidence against the defending Cup champions. Tuesday, 5:07 pm

    Injured Reserve
  • Nail Yakupov has gone quiet without McDavid
    Nail Yakupov is on a four-game point drought.

    Advice: Yakupov got off to a strong start to the season, but a lot of the credit went to his linemate Connor McDavid. When McDavid got hurt, it created a situation where Yakupov had the opportunity to show that he had taken a big step forward this season and was capable of being a significant contributor without McDavid. That's not what's happened though so far as Yakupov has gone quiet. Nov 16, 5:48 am
