  • Wagner gets only goal in Ducks loss
    Chris Wagner scored a tying goal at the 17:49 minute mark of the second period, but it was not enough in the 2-1 overtime loss of the Anaheim Ducks to the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Wagner’s goal was the second of the season. Notably he was assisted by Clayton Stoner and Antoine Vermette who recorded their second assists of the year. Wagner had one goal, five shots on goal, and a block to make him one of the top fantasy players of the game. 55 minutes ago
  • Bobrovsky gets 3-2 loss to Kings
    Sergei Bobrovsky blocked 27 shots and let three pass in Tuesday night’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Bobrovsky was coming off a two-game winning streak that included a 32-shot perfect match again the Stars on Saturday night. Even in his losses, Bobrovsky has been impressive stopping 35 of 37 shots again San Jose in their first matchup and 32 of 34 again the Blackhawks. Facing 30 shots on Tuesday night was the least work Bobrovsky has had all year. Yesterday, 11:15 pm
  • Sedin Bros fail to provide shots in Sens loss
    Daniel Sedin made only two shots on goal in Tuesday night’s 3-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators while his brother Henrik failed to make a single shot.

    Advice: Both Sedins skated for more than 19 minutes and simply were not very effective. After winning their first four games, the Senators have now dropped three in a row. This was their first home loss. Yesterday, 11:06 pm
  • Anderson gets 1st shutout of season
    Craig Anderson stopped 22 shots to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night.

  • Peter Budaj stops 19 in win over Blue Jackets
    Peter Budaj blocked 19 shots in the 3-2 overtime victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night.

    Advice: Budaj rebounded from two modest games. He was in net against the Dallas Stars Thursday Oct. 20 and gave up three goals on 20 shots for an .850 SV%. Saturday night he was credited with the win against the Canucks with an .880 SV%. In Tuesday’s win over the Blue Jackets, he posted a .905 save percentage. Budaj has been forced to work hard so far this season, as all three of his wins have come in overtime. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Vlasic steals OT victory from Ducks
    Marc-Edouard Vlasic received a stolen puck from Joe Pavelski Tuesday night and scored the game winning goal in the 2-1 contest over the Anaheim Ducks at the 1:24 minute mark of overtime.

    Advice: The Ducks won the OT faceoff and kept the puck in the Sharks end for more than minute. It took only the slightest bobble for Joe Pavelski to steal the puck, pass to Vlasic and chase him down the ice. This was Vlasic’s first goal of the season and his second point. Pavelski scored his sixth assist of the season and also had the first goal of the game at the 7:58 minute mark. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Ryan Miller stops 25 against the Senators
    Ryan Miller blocked 25 shots and let two past in Tuesday night’s 3-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: Miller’s record falls to 1-2 having lost on Sunday to the Ducks after winning his first game. His victory over the Flames on October 15th came on a perfect night when he blocked all 25 shots directed at him. Despite his losing record, Miller has been impressive with a save percentage of .932. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Ryan Dzingel scores two in win over Canucks
    Ryan Dzingel scored two goals Tuesday night in the Ottawa Senators 3-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Dzingel was efficient, scoring his two goals on only two shots. This is the second time in his last four games that he has been perfect; he scored one goal on one shot against the Red Wings in their October 17th matchup. Dzingel now has four goals and two assists in six games. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Mark Scheifele scores fourth goal in loss
    Mark Scheifele scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: Scheifele cut the Jets' deficit to 3-2 with 10 seconds remaining in regulation, but it was too little too late at that point. The young forward is off to a hot start, as he has seven points in six games this season. He's one of the better young players in the league and needs to be in starting lineups whenever Winnipeg is in action. Joel Armia also scored for the Jets. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Tyler Seguin scores GWG vs. Winnipeg
    Tyler Seguin scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: With the Stars ahead 2-1 in the third period, Seguin beat Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson with an accurate wrist shot from a difficult angle. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and three hits in 19:12 of ice time. He also won 56 percent of his faceoffs. Seguin has three goals and three assists in his first six games of the season. Brett Ritchie and Patrick Eaves also scored for the Stars. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Getzlaf leaves Tuesday's game with UBI
    Ryan Getzlaf left Tuesday's match against San Jose late in the second period with an upper-body injury and his return is questionable.

    Advice: Getzlaf was the second Ducks player to sustain an injury Tuesday night after starting goaltender Jonathan Bernier left at the end of the first with an upper-body injury. Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Kevin Shattenkirk scores PPG in loss to CGY
    Kevin Shattenkirk scored a power play goal in St. Louis' 4-1 loss to Calgary.

    Advice: Shattenkirk's third period goal cut the Flames' lead to 3-1, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Vladimir Tarasenko and Colton Parayko picked up the assists on Shattenkirk's second goal of the season. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Johnny Gaudreau has two points in win
    Johnny Gaudreau scored a goal and an assist in Calgary's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Gaudreau helped set up Dennis Wideman's power play goal less than four minutes into the first period. His empty net goal was the final nail in the Blues' coffin. Gaudreau redeemed himself after going minus-4 in Saturday's loss to these same Blues. He now has two goals and five points in eight games. Deryk Engelland and Sam Bennett also scored for Calgary. Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Brian Elliott takes down his former team
    Brian Elliott stopped 23 of 24 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Elliott did extremely well in his first matchup against his former team. Don't look now, but after a poor start, Elliott has seemingly turned things around. He and the Flames have won back-to-back games on the road against Chicago and St. Louis. The 31-year-old's fantasy stock is on the rise. He has a 2-3-0 record with a 3.37 goals-against-average and an .882 save percentage in 2016-17. Elliott's given up just three goals in his last two starts. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Another ugly outing by Frederik Andersen
    Frederik Andersen allowed seven goals on 24 shots in Toronto's 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: There's been a lot of talk about Andersen's underwhelming play in Toronto these days and this performance certainly won't help. There's no doubt that the 27-year-old has been disappointing so far, but we knew that going from Anaheim to Toronto wasn't going to be easy. Andersen is 1-1-3 with a 4.29 goals-against-average and a .851 save percentage in 2016-17. He hasn't been good, but the Maple Leafs aren't exactly perfect in their own zone. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Ryan Miller starts vs. Senators
    Ryan Miller will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: Miller missed just over a week because of an undisclosed injury, but returned to the lineup in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim. He'll get another crack at it tonight when he takes on the Sens. If he struggles, Jacob Markstrom might get more work over the next little while. Yesterday, 6:43 pm
  • Peter Budaj expected to start vs. CBJ
    Peter Budaj will get the call in Tuesday's game against Columbus.

    Advice: Budaj opened the season as the Kings' third string goalie, but has been forced into duty because both Jonathan Quick and Jeff Zatkoff are injured. He has a 2-0-0 record with a 2.46 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage. Yesterday, 3:23 pm
  • Sergei Bobrovsky starts vs. Los Angeles
    Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: The 28-year-old has a 2-2-0 record with a 2.28 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage this season. He's coming off a 32-save shutout in a win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday. Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Craig Anderson will start vs. Canucks
    Craig Anderson will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Anderson has a 3-1-0 record this season, but he's given up three goals in each of his four starts. He'll enter tonight's game with a 3.66 goals-against-average and a .886 save percentage in 2016-17. Yesterday, 3:17 pm
  • Frederik Andersen expected to start vs. Bolts
    Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Andersen has just one win in his first four outings as a Maple Leaf. He's allowed at least four goals in each of his three losses in 2016-17. He has a 3.64 goals-against-average and a .879 save percentage this season. Yesterday, 3:13 pm
  • Brian Elliott to face former team Tuesday
    Brian Elliott will be in goal for the Flames again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Fresh off his first win with Calgary on Monday versus Chicago, Elliott will get the call against his former St. Louis teammates. Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • Frederik Andersen needs to stop over-thinking
    Independent goalie coach Steve McKichan believes Frederik Andersen is guilty of thinking too much.

    Advice: "As a goalie, you can't be thinking," McKichan said. "It's such a reactive position. What he's hinting at there is that he's thinking. A goaltender can't force their will on the game, they have to deal with the hand they're dealt and see what comes at them." Andersen has struggled in three of his first four starts with the Maple Leafs, but it's still too early to panic. Yesterday, 8:22 am
  • Ryan Dzingel joins line with Brassard, Ryan
    Ryan Dzingel is slated to play alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan on Tuesday versus Vancouver.

    Advice: Coach Guy Boucher wants to get a fast player to skate with Brassard and he's hoping that Dzingel's "first on puck" style will benefit the combination. Yesterday, 8:01 am
  • Ellliott collects first win with Calgary
    Brian Elliott collected his first win with Calgary during their 3-2 shoot-out victory over Chicago.

    Advice: Well, you can't say he didn't earn it. Elliott made 28 of 30 stops through regulation, then all seven in the shoot-out. These are the sort of games that can help turn a season around. Monday, 9:07 pm
  • Ryan Getlaf stays hot with 3 A in win
    Ryan Getzlaf chimed in with three assists in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: The 31-year-old is sure making his presence felt during the early games of the season. He now has eight points in six games, and at least one point in five of those games so far. Getzlaf had a hand in Anaheim's final three goals of the night. Sunday, 8:09 pm
  • Ryan Miller allows four goals in loss to ANA
    Ryan Miller made 33 saves but allowed four goals on Sunday night in the Canucks' 4-2 loss to the Ducks.

    Advice: In the veteran's first start in eight days, he allowed two goals in the final nine minutes which led to the defeat. Miller is now 1-1 this season with a shutout and four goals allowed. Sunday, 7:59 pm
  • Brian Elliott will face Chicago on Monday
    Brian Elliott will face Chicago on Monday night.

    Advice: Elliott is winless in three games with 14 goals against so far, but with only two games going on Monday you might as well play him. Sunday, 10:32 am
  • Dzingel back to getting 4th line minutes
    Ryan Dzingel is back to getting fourth-line minutes.

    Advice: Dzingel was getting chances to play on the Sens' second line alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan, however against the Lightning Saturday night Dzingel skated on the Senators' fourth unit alongside Phil Varone and Chris Neil. Dzingel saw his ice time fall for the third consecutive game as well from 13:22 to 12:14 to 11:30 Saturday night. The young forward still has four points in five games but it looks as if he will play a minor role for much of the season. Sunday, 7:31 am
  • Jake Allen not concerned about Brian Elliott
    Former teammate Jake Allen is not concerned with the slow start of Brian Elliott this season.

    Advice: Allen and Elliott were goaltending partners in St. Louis for the last four seasons so Allen saw Elliott through all his ups and downs before he was dealt to Calgary in the off-season. "I wouldn’t worry one bit. That’s just my perspective," Allen said. "He’s one of the most competitive people I have ever met, and he will find his game very soon. Obviously, he wanted to get off to a good start (in Calgary), that’s first and foremost, but if it doesn’t go that way, he will rebound and find it. I’m 100% about that. I wouldn’t be too concerned if I was a Flames fan." Elliott is winless in three with a 4.72 GAA and a .839 save percentage. Look for him to get the start in goal Tuesday when the Flames meet the Blues yet again. Sunday, 4:05 am
  • Seguin, Stars scoreless against Jackets
    Tyler Seguin made five shots on goal Saturday night but none of them got past Sergei Bobrovsky as the Dallas Stars lost 3-0 to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Sequin had the most attempts in the contest for the Stars followed by Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn with four. Fantasy owners had to be content with the minimal points banked for shots on goal. Sunday, 1:07 am
  • Andersen loses to Blackhawks at .886
    Frederik Andersen had a save percentage of .886 with four goals against 31 saves in Saturday night’s 5-4 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Andersen now has three overtime losses in his 2016-17 record versus one win. With a little more help at the other end of the ice he could become a solid proposition for fantasy players and that could make him a great differentiator for anyone bold enough to be the first to climb on his bandwagon. Sunday, 12:19 am
  • Peter Budaj gets another win. In 2016.
    The Los Angeles Kings managed a 4-3 shootout win against the pesky Vancouver Canucks, with Peter Budaj being the unlikely recipient of a victory.

    Advice: The 34-year-old is now on a two-game winning streak, even if his numbers haven't been spectacular. He gave up three goals on 25 SOG, but the Kings won. Things haven't been pretty for Los Angeles, so carving out points is pretty huge, even if style points are in short supply. Saturday, 10:22 pm
  • Craig Anderson gives up four in loss to Bolts
    Craig Anderson blocked 31 shots and let four get past in the 4-1 loss of the Ottawa Senators to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Anderson has at least been consistent. In three previous games this season he had a save percentage of .887 including a .886 against the Coyotes on Tuesday. Saturday night, he had a .886 again the Tampa Bay Lightning. Consistency allows fantasy players to make accurate predictions, which are often more valuable than riding crested waves. Saturday, 10:22 pm
  • Rough night for Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan
    The Calgary Flames put up some points in losing to the St. Louis Blues by a score of 6-4, but their top duo didn't have a good night.

    Advice: Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan sported matching -4 ratings on Saturday. It's been a bumpy start to the season for the Flames, and that fantastic one-two punch is sputtering in particular. Expect them to turn things around soon enough. Saturday, 10:05 pm
  • Bobrovsky gets first shutout of the season
    Sergei Bobrovsky faced 32 shots and blocked 32 shots to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 3-0 shutout over the Dallas Stars Saturday night.

    Advice: Bobrovsky became the first goalie in franchise history to score 100 wins for the Blue Jackets. After giving up six goals against Boston on October 13th, he has been stellar in the net recording a .946 save percentage in a loss to the Sharks on the 15th. A victory Friday night over the Blackhawks came with a .941 and tonight he was perfect to insure he scored major fantasy points. Saturday, 7:53 pm
  • Sergei Bobrovsky will face Dallas on Saturday
    Sergei Bobrovsky will face Dallas on Saturday night.

    Advice: Three games, nine goals against on 106 combined shots and a win. Not the best start to a season, but it appears the veteran netminder is already back up to full speed. Still, we'd still seek a more favorable matchup. Saturday, 4:14 pm
  • Ryan Miller will face Anaheim on Sunday
    Ryan Miller will face Anaheim on Sunday night.

    Advice: After Jacob Markstrom takes on the Kings on Saturday, it'll be Miller's turn to take on the Ducks on Sunday. The veteran netminder pitched a 25-save shutout in his only game of the season, and the Ducks have been struggling, which makes him a sneaky quality start candidate. Saturday, 2:01 pm
  • Peter Budaj will face Vancouver on Saturday
    After Jeff Zatkoff went down with an injury in practice, Peter Budaj will be the Kings' netminder against the Canucks on Saturday night.

    Advice: Budaj has turned away 26 of 29 combined shots in two games so far this season, but has never been a steady netminder. Say what you will about Vancouver, but you're probably still better off seeking a more favorable matchup tonight. Saturday, 1:37 pm
  • Craig Anderson will face Tampa Bay on Sat
    Craig Anderson will face Tampa Bay on Saturday night.

    Advice: Despite allowing 11 goals through the first three games, Anderson has won all three of his stats. With Andrei Vasilevskiy in Tampa's net, the veteran netminder may not be such a bad start tonight. Saturday, 12:08 pm
  • Craig Anderson looking to improve
    Craig Anderson is looking to put his early-season struggles behind him.

    Advice: The 35-year-old has a 3-0-0 record, but his 3.55 goals-against-average and .887 save percentage have to improve going forward. "It’s a work in progress," said Anderson. "Right now, it’s just tracking the puck, following the puck off my body and controlling the rebounds. I’ve showed it in spurts, where I could do it, and there’s been other times where it’s just been a grenade in there and everything turns into chaos." He'll get the start in a difficult matchup against the Lightning on Saturday night. Saturday, 7:45 am
  • Frederik Andersen will start vs. Chicago
    Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Andersen was given the night off in Thursday's game against Minnesota. He'll enter tonight's game with a 1-0-2 record, a 3.60 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage. Saturday, 5:17 am
  • Sergei Bobrovsky brilliant for Jackets in win
    Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

    Advice: Bobrvosky was simply brilliant for the Blue Jackets in this one. The Blue Jackets were outshot 24 to 11 through the final two frames and 'Bob' made several great saves to seal the win for the Jackets. The win is his first of the season. Even after this great performance, it is tough to trust him as your starting goalie in fantasy considering the team that plays in front of him. His record has now improved to 1-2-0 on the young season. Friday, 6:41 pm
  • Sergei Bobrovsky to tend goal for Columbus
    Sergei Bobrovsky will start in net for the Blue Jackets against the Chicago Blackhawks in Columbus tonight.

    Advice: Bobrovsky has had a tough start, with a record of 0-2-0 and a goals-against average of 3.59. His save percentage is .904. Friday, 2:49 pm
  • Craig Anderson will get the nod on Saturday
    Craig Anderson will play between the pipes on Saturday.

    Advice: Anderson has made three starts so far this season and won all of them. It hasn't been pretty though as his 3.55 GAA and .887 save percentage indicates. Friday, 10:14 am
  • Tyler Seguin chips in two helpers Thursday
    Tyler Seguin chipped in two assists in the Stars' 4-3 overtime loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

    Advice: Seguin helped set up goals by Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn (power play) in the contest. He has compiled five points in Dallas' first four games. Friday, 6:41 am
  • Brian Elliott struggles again in loss
    Brian Elliott struggled again on Thursday, allowing four goals on 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to Carolina.

    Advice: Elliott has is still win-less to start the season and he has allowed four goals or more in each of his three starts. He will bring his ugly 4.72 GAA and .839 save percentage into his next start where he will hope for his first win. The Flames wrap up a three-game homestand on Saturday when the St. Louis Blues visit. Thursday, 9:35 pm
  • Johnny Gaudreau scores first goal in loss
    Johnny Gaudreau scored his first of the season in a 4-2 loss to Carolina on Thursday.

    Advice: Gaudreau's goal in the third period made it a one goal lead to make it 3-2 but that was as close as the Flames would get. He added five shots and a blocked shot in the loss. The 23 year-old star has three points in the first five games of the season. Troy Brouwer continued his hot start with his third of the season in the losing cause. Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Peter Budaj makes 17 saves, LAK win first gm
    Peter Budaj stopped 17 of 20 shots in Los Angeles' 4-3 OT win over the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: After a couple of ugly outings from Jeff Zatkoff, the Kings decided to turn to Budaj and it worked, as he helped the team pick up their first win of the season. Los Angeles never trailed in this game, but they still needed overtime to get the job done. Budaj's stat line wasn't fantastic tonight, but with Zatkoff struggling, he might get the start in their next game. Neither one of the Kings goalies will be a reliable fantasy option going forward. Thursday, 9:18 pm
  • Ryan Miller will dress for Thursday's game
    Ryan Miller, who missed time due to an undisclosed injury, will serve as Vancouver's backup goalie on Thursday.

    Advice: That was the expectation, but the Canucks have now confirmed it. From there, the hope is that Miller will start on either Saturday or Sunday. Thursday, 2:28 pm
  • Look for Brian Elliott to start on Thursday
    Brian Elliott is expected to start for Calgary on Thursday.

    Advice: Elliott was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, so that's a good indicator of the Flames' intentions, but it also just seems like a good time to use Elliott. Chad Johnson has started in the last two games and while he did well, Elliott is an important part of the team and the Flames likely want to give him a chance to put those rough outings against Edmonton behind him sooner rather than later. Thursday, 1:18 pm
  • Kings will start Peter Budaj Thursday night
    Peter Budaj will start for the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: Budaj is making his first start since being called up to help in Jonathan Quick's (groin) absence. Quick is likely to be gone for at least three months, so Budaj and Jeff Zatkoff have a lot of work ahead of them. Thus far the Kings have leaned on Zatkoff, but he's struggled so far, so Budaj might end up getting used with more regularity going forward. Thursday, 11:41 am
  • Peter Budaj might begin getting starts
    Although Peter Budaj hasn't gotten a start yet in Jonathan Quick's (groin) absence, he might start getting used with some regularity.

    Advice: The Kings were initially leaning on Jeff Zatkoff, but that hasn't produced positive results so now Los Angeles might split the goalie duties more evenly. It will be telling to see what the Kings do over the next four games in particular because they're well spread out, so Los Angeles won't need to split the goaltending duties over that span for fatigue reasons and consequently any starts Budaj get over that span would likely be for other reasons. Thursday, 7:33 am
  • Mark Scheifele records 3 points vs. Leafs
    Mark Scheifele collected three points in Wednesday's comeback win against Toronto.

    Advice: He had two assists and one goal to help the Jets rally from a 4-0 deficit to a 5-4 overtime win. Scheifele has been held off the scoresheet in just one of Winnipeg's first four games. He has six points (three goals, three assists) during that span. Thursday, 7:03 am
  • Frederik Andersen allows five in OTL to Jets
    Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: Andersen blanked the Jets in the first half of this game, but things changed in a hurry. Winnipeg overcame a four-goal deficit to force overtime and rookie Patrik Laine won the game in the extra frame. Andersen has a 1-0-2 record with a 3.60 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage this season. He's in no danger of losing his starting job in Toronto. Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Brian Elliott may be in goal on Thursday
    Brian Elliott will probably be back in the cage for Calgary on Thursday against Carolina.

    Advice: coach Glen Gulutzan hasn't confirmed a starting goalie yet, but it makes sense to go back to Elliott. He struggled in two starts against the Oilers, but the team needs to get him going after giving Chad Johnson the last two outings. Wednesday, 1:11 pm
  • Ryan Miller will be fine to dress on Thursday
    Ryan Miller will be back in goalie equipment for Thursday's game versus Buffalo.

    Advice: He is expected to serve as Jacob Markstrom's backup against his old team. Miller didn't play on Tuesday because of an undisclosed ailment, which was described as "tightness" in his core areas. Wednesday, 12:13 pm
  • Frederik Andersen will start Wednesday v. WPG
    Frederik Andersen will get the nod on Wednesday night versus Winnipeg.

    Advice: He was much better against the Bruins on Saturday after a sub-par performance versus Ottawa in Toronto's season opener. Andersen owns a 1-0-1 record with a 2.98 GAA and an .891 save percentage. Wednesday, 9:11 am
  • Johnny Gaudreau gets an assist Tuesday
    Johnny Gaudreau registered an assist in a 4-3 overtime win versus Buffalo.

    Advice: Gaudreau also had three shots on goal, but wasn't able to score his first goal of 2016-17. He has two points in four games so far. Wednesday, 5:20 am
  • Craig Anderson makes 31 saves in win
    Craig Anderson stopped 31 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: The Coyotes scored the first goal of the game, but the Sens responded by scoring three unanswered goals and never looked back. Anderson has given up 11 goals in three games, but has still come away with three victories. The 35-year-old has a 3.56 goals-against-average and a .887 save percentage. Tuesday, 7:50 pm
  • Ryan Miller (undisclosed) won't suit up Tues.
    Ryan Miller (undisclosed) won't be on the bench for the Canucks on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Vancouver will use UBC Thunderbirds netminder Matt Hewitt as the backup to Jacob Markstrom. Miller was experiencing tightness in the morning, but it was hoped that he would still be able to dress. Consider him day-to-day for the time being. Tuesday, 12:32 pm
  • Ryan Miller (tightness) won't start Tuesday
    Ryan Miller experienced some tightness Tuesday morning.

    Advice: He still might be available to back up Jacob Markstrom, though. Miller did some skating this morning, so we will keep him active. Tuesday, 11:10 am
  • Craig Anderson to play Tuesday vs. Coyotes
    Craig Anderson will be back in the crease for Ottawa on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He will face the Arizona Coyotes after Andrew Hammond played in Monday's 5-1 loss to Detroit. Anderson has a 2-0-0 record this campaign, but he also owns a 3.33 goals-against average and an .887 save percentage. Tuesday, 10:49 am
  • Johnny Gaudreau: I'm still getting chances
    Johnny Gaudreau isn't too worried about his sluggish start to 2016-17.

    Advice: Gaudreau has no goals and an assist in his first three games. "It’s frustrating when you’re getting chances and you’re not finding the net," Gaudreau said. "I’m getting chances. I just can’t find the net right now. Players go through that, throughout their career and throughout the season. As long as I’m getting chances. … I had a breakaway in Vancouver and then kind of another semi-breakaway against (Ryan) Miller and I shot it over the net. So as long as you’re getting chances, that’s all you can ask for." His next opportunity will come on Tuesday against Buffalo. Tuesday, 1:41 am
  • Ryan Dzingel scores lone goal for Senators
    Ryan Dzingel scored the Ottawa Senators' lone goal in a 5-1 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit Monday night.

    Advice: Dzingel's goal, scored at 8:51 of the second period, came while the Sens were shorthanded. It was Dzingel's second goal of the young season. Monday, 9:54 pm
  • Johnny Gaudreau off to slow start
    Johnny Gaudreau is off to a slow start with only one assist and a minus-four rating in his first three games.

    Advice: There is nothing to panic about for the Flames sensation. Gaudreau missed training camp as he was an unsigned restricted free agent but he did play in the World Cup so he did get plenty of top-notch ice time in September. It's only been three games and Gaudreau is coming off two great seasons with 64 and 78 points respectively. If anyone in your pool is panicking about the lack of production of Johnny Hockey, then grab him in a trade immediately before they change their mind. Monday, 3:56 am
  • Ryan Getzlaf leads Ducks in shots on goal
    Ryan Getzlaf is leading the Anaheim Ducks in shots on goal with 17.

    Advice: Getzlaf has gone over 200 shots only three times in his 11 year career but he is on pace for 534 shots this season after only three games. "I take the looks that are there," Getzlaf said. "If somebody’s open, I tend to try and give them the puck. And if they’re not, it’s my job to try and get it to the net. I’ve been trying to do that." Getzlaf scored his first of the season on Sunday and now has four points in three games after going last October with only one helper in eight games. Monday, 3:39 am
  • Ryan Getzlaf collects two points in loss
    Ryan Getzlaf chipped in two points for the second consecutive game in Anaheim's 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Sunday.

    Advice: Getzlaf lit the lamp for his first goal of the season and pitched in his third assist in three games to improve to four points in the first three games. His pace so far this year is lightyears ahead of last season's slumping start. Oct 16, 7:13 pm
  • Dzingel makes good Saturday night
    Ryan Dzingel scored and registered two points in Ottawa's 4-3 shootout win over the Canadiens.

    Advice: Dzingel is getting a partial shot on the Sens' second line alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan. Even when he plays lower down in the lineup, Dzingel is a threat because of his impressive speed. Despite the fact that he only registered nine points in 30 games with the Sens last season, Dzingel is a former Ohio State University scoring star. He's worth keeping an eye on. Oct 16, 8:31 am
  • Scheifele productive in Jets loss
    Mark Scheifele scored his second goal of the season and had his first assist, but it was not enough in Saturday night’s 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: Schiefele drew the Jets to within one with 19 seconds remaining on the clock, but the play went under review. Mathieu Perreault provided an assist, but crashed into Devan Dubnyk during the play. It was determined this was not goaltender interference and the point stood. Despite a frenzied ending, Jets coach Paul Maurice said that it was a lack of chaos that lost the game. ''All things open up after chaos gets created and we didn't create enough chaos in the offensive zone to create some of the plays we were looking for,'' Maurice said. Oct 16, 8:17 am
  • Andersen’s 24 blocked shots key to winning
    Frederik Andersen stopped 24 and let one shot pass in the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins Saturday night.

    Advice: Andersen moved over from the Anaheim Ducks this year, where he had 22 wins in 43 games in the 2015-16 season and 35 wins in 54 games in 2014-15. With a save percentage of .960 and only one goal against, he was a key component to winning one’s fantasy roster. Oct 16, 7:43 am
  • Anderson gets OT win again Habs
    Craig Anderson blocked 21 of 24 shots Saturday night, but it was enough to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Ottawa fell behind early. Anderson gave up two goals in the first period on only six shots and it took until the 2:50 minute mark in the third period to catch up. Anderson’s save percentage has been slipping in recent seasons from a high of .941 in 2012-13 to last year’s .916 in 60 games. Still, the Senators have found a way to win in the first two games and sit in a three-way tie at the top of the Atlantic division with Florida and Tampa Bay. Oct 16, 6:28 am
  • Sergei Bobrovsky outstanding in loss
    Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 35 shots in a 3-2 loss to San Jose Saturday.

    Advice: Bobrovsky was outstanding and gave the Blue Jackets every opportunity to stay in the game with his play. He is now 0-2 this season after giving up five in 36 shots against the Bruins in his seasonal debut. Bobrovsky only gave up two goals as the eventual winner was scored into the empty net. He has a 3.59 GAA and a .904 save percentage after a couple of games. He should get 25 wins if he can stay healthy, something that has eluded him of late. Oct 16, 3:29 am
  • Ryan Getzlaf sets up both goals in Ducks loss
    Ryan Getzlaf set up both Anaheim goals on Saturday.

    Advice: Getzlaf picked up his first two points of the season as he set up Cam Fowler and Corey Perry in a 3-2 loss to the Penguins. Getzlaf had 10 shots on goal in his first game of the season and now with this performance is certainly way ahead of last year's pace when he got off to the slowest start of his career with only one assist in eight October games. Getzlaf should get back to the 70 point mark this season barring any injuries. Oct 16, 2:20 am
  • Ryan Miller may not receive shutout cred
    At the moment, it appears that Ryan Miller will NOT be credited with a shutout even though the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 via a shootout.

    Advice: The confusion is understandable: Miller stopped all 25 shots and didn't allow anything in OT, as Loui Eriksson's own-goal came during a delayed penalty, meaning Miller was out of Vancouver's net. Stats LLC reportedly credited him with one, yet as of a late update, does not have a shutout listed. Keep an eye out for updates in your own league, as this is a very unusual situation.

  • Tyler Seguin brings Stars close to comeback
    After riding lesser-named talents to a comeback win in their opener, more familiar faces nearly pushed the Dallas Stars to a comeback in an eventual 6-5 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: Tyler Seguin likely put some concerns about his health to rest, scoring two goals and one assist. Jamie Benn generated a goal and an assist while Patrick Eaves (two helpers) was also along for the ride. Health permitting, it's reasonable to expect those two to jockey for an Art Ross in 2016-17.
