    • Antii Niemi between the pipes Monday
      Antii Niemi is getting the nod in net Monday versus the Anaheim Ducks.

      Advice: San Jose coach Todd McLellan has confirmed that Niemi will start Monday night and go for his eighth consecutive victory. Niemi is 2-0 versus the Ducks this year with a 2.50 goals-against-average and .926 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Miller back in net Monday night
      Ryan Miller will start for the Canucks Monday night against Arizona.

      Advice: Miller will start his second consecutive game where he will look for his 18th win of the season. In 24 games played in the 2014-2015 season, the first year Canuck has a sub-par 2.65 goals-against-average and .901 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Jakub Voracek chosen as 2nd star of the week
      Jakub Voracek was chosen as the second star of the week for the period ending Dec. 21.

      Advice: The NHL's leading scorer registered three goals and seven points in four games for the Flyers. Voracek has amassed 44 points in 33 games this campaign and he's on pace to shatter his previous career highs (23 goals and 39 assists), which were established last year. Voracek has been held scoreless in just seven outings. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop probably won't play Tuesday night
      Ben Bishop (lower body) practiced with his teammates on Monday.

      Advice: He is listed as "doubtful to questionable" to return from a lower-body injury on Tuesday night, according to coach Jon Cooper. "He's just getting back," Cooper said. "He, even by his own accounts, is not 100 percent. If that's going to leave a little bit of doubt, then we'll have to see where he's at tomorrow." Bishop liked how he felt after the session and said he could play Tuesday, but there is no urgency being displayed by the Lightning with the Christmas break just around the corner and Andrei Vasilevskiy playing well.

    • Steve Mason uncertain for Tuesday night
      It's viewed as unlikely that Steve Mason (upper body) will be ready for Tuesday's match against Minnesota.

      Advice: The Flyers have not provided a timetable for his return and Mason's scheduled visit with a doctor on Monday had to be changed for an unknown reason. Therefore, there was no update on the netminder's status. "I'm optimistic it won't be long," GM Ron Hextall said Saturday. "Until you get the information, you don't know for sure. I don't anticipate it being a long time but it could change." Rotoworld.com

    • Del Zotto frustrated with being scratched
      Michael Del Zotto isn't happy about his recent lack of playing time.

      Advice: He has been scratched eighth times in 10 games during the month of December. "Honestly, I don't know what to think. I really don't," Del Zotto said. "Obviously, you're not happy with one game, let alone [six]. So I'm not happy with it. In San Jose [on Dec. 2] I was shocked, disappointed, frustrated, all of those things. All of the above. At first, you get really frustrated and upset, but at the end of the day you have no control over what's going on." In 24 games this year, he has eight points and he's averaged 20:22 of ice time, but coach Craig Berube feels the defenseman's game has "dropped off." Rotoworld.com

    • Boyes and Fleischmann scratched Monday
      Brad Boyes and Tomas Fleischmann will be healthy scratches Monday night against the Penguins.

      Advice: Boyes had just dressed for the Panthers on December 20th, but will find himself on the sidelines Monday night. It has been a miserable year for the 32-year-old winger as he's compiled just five goals and nine assists in 30 games. Fleischmann has been even more disappointing if you can believe that, scoring just three goals and five assists in 29 games played. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Hiller starts for Calgary vs. Kings
      Jonas Hiller has been confirmed as Calgary's starting goalie for Monday's game against Los Angeles.

      Advice: There was a conflicting report earlier that Karri Ramo would be getting the nod, but that won't be the case. Hiller hasn't won a game since Nov. 18 and he's coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

    • Ian Cole was back in the lineup Saturday
      Ian Cole has been a healthy scratch four of St. Louis' past six games.

      Advice: "It's no fun," said Cole. "But I'm just trying to go out and help the team when I get the opportunity, go out and win games, and not get scored on when I'm on the ice. That's the only thing that I'm thinking going forward." Cole got back into the lineup on Saturday after Petteri Lindbohm was returned to the minors. In 29 games this season, Cole has three goals, five points, 21 penalty minutes and a plus-9 rating. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Zatkoff will back up Fleury on Monday
      Jeff Zatkoff will be summoned from the minors to dress in Monday's game against Florida.

      Brandon Sutter is being tested for mumps.

    • Mathieu Perreault extends point streak
      Mathieu Perreault registered his sixth goal of the year in Sunday's overtime loss to Philadelphia.

      Advice: He has picked up a point in each of Winnipeg's last seven games to give him a total of 15 in 33 contests. Perreault has been red hot of late and could warrant attention as a short-term addition to your roster. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Halischuk scores first goal of the year
      Matt Halischuk scored in Winnipeg's 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia.

      Advice: In 22 games this season, Halischuk has one goal and three points. He chipped in 15 goals and 28 points in 73 games for Nashville in 2011-12, but he's unlikely to get close to those numbers this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Eberle has an assist vs. Dallas
      Jordan Eberle recorded an assist in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss to Dallas on Sunday.

      Advice: It was Eberle's 20th point in 33 games this season. He's been underperforming this season, at least in the context of what he was able to do in previous years. When compared to the rest of the 2014-15 Oilers' team, he remains one of their best forwards. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:29 am
    • Teddy Purcell has a three-point game
      Teddy Purcell had a goal and two assists in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss on Sunday.

      Advice: It was Purcell's first multi-point game since Nov. 7. He now has five goals and 17 points in 34 contests, which is a bit disappointing for him, especially when bundled with his minus-16 rating. He's capable of doing better, but we're not sure that he will, in part because the Oilers' offense as a whole has been just dreadful this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jakub Voracek scores two goals in win
      Jakub Voracek scored two goals in Philadelphia's 4-3 overtime win over Winnipeg

      Advice: Voracek opened the scoring in the first period and scored the overtime winner. The 25-year-old's dream season continues. No one could have seen this kind of offensive production coming from Voracek this season. He has 14 goals and 44 points in 33 games this season. Mark Streit and Vincent Lecavalier also scored for the Flyers. Rotoworld.com

    • Del Zotto, Colaiacovo scratched in Winnipeg
      Michael Del Zotto and Carlo Colaiacovo will be healthy scratches in Winnipeg on Sunday night.

      Yesterday, 5:42 pm
    • Jonas Hiller to start Monday in LA
      Jonas Hiller will be between the pipes when the Flames visit the Kings on Monday.

      Advice: Hiller has allowed a dozen goals in five starts against the Kings since 2012, though he's only won two of those decisions. Each of those starts came when he was with Anaheim. Rotoworld.com

    • Brad Boyes back after missing one game
      Brad Boyes (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

      Advice: Boyes managed a shot on goal in 14:45 minutes of action. He has five goals and 14 points in 30 games. He has negligible fantasy value in shallow pools. Rotoworld.com

    • Antti Niemi gives up two in second in win
      Antti Niemi blocked 18 of 20 shots in San Jose’s 3-2 victory against the Blues on Saturday night.

      Advice: Niemi gave up both goals in the second period. He did just enough to escape with his seventh straight win. Niemi has a 2.42 goals-against average and .917 save percentage this season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Alex Stalock get the start against the Ducks on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Miller snaps 3-game skid, wins in OT
      Ryan Miller set aside 26 shots in the Canucks’ 3-2 overtime win against Calgary on Saturday night.

      Advice: Miller needed a performance like this in a big way, as he had lost three straight and really hasn’t been all that great this season. Despite three shutouts, Miller has just a 2.65 goals-against average and .901 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 10:19 pm
    • Jonas Hiller makes 30 saves in OT loss
      Jonas Hiller made 30 saves as the Flames fell 3-2 in overtime to the Canucks on Saturday night.

      Advice: This effort should be plenty good enough to get Hiller the majority of the starts in the near future. Even though he hasn’t won since Nov. 18, Hiller has given up two goals in each of his last three starts. He has a 2.38 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Jakub Voracek takes over points lead with 4A
      Jakub Voracek recorded four assists in the Flyers’ 7-4 win over the Leafs on Saturday night.

      Advice: Voracek is having a career season, as he’s now taken over the NHL’s points lead with 42 in 32 games. The 25-year-old forms a dynamic one-two punch with Claude Giroux. Expect this trend to continue. Rotoworld.com

    • Antti Niemi will start against the Blues
      Antti Niemi will get the nod against the Blues on Saturday night.

      Advice: Niemi has beaten the Blues in three of his last four starts dating back to March of 2013, and he's allowed just 10 goals in that time. The Sharks have won four in a row and eight of their last nine as well. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 4:19 pm
    • Jonas Hiller to start in Vancouver
      Jonas Hiller will get the nod in Vancouver on Saturday night.

      Advice: Hiller was good Friday night against Dallas, stopping 19-21 shots. However the struggling Flames offense could only get one puck past Kari Lehtonen for their seventh straight loss. Hiller for his part has now lost six straight starts, though he owns a 2.40 GAA and .914 save percentage on the season. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 4:16 pm
    • Del Zotto, Colaiacovo, VandeVelde all out
      Michael Del Zotto, Carlo Colaiacovo, and Chris VandeVelde will all be healthy scratches Saturday night against Toronto.

      Advice: If any of the three were of any fantasy value, it'd be Del Zotto who has eight points, 41 hits, and 50 blocks in his 24 games thus far. However he'd only be recommended in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Brad Boyes, who missed his first game of the season Thursday with an upper-body injury, will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Penguins.

      The Pittsburgh Penguins have returned Jeff Zatkoff to the minors.

      Advice: The netminder was recalled when the Penguins were unsure as to whether or not Thomas Greiss had the mumps. When it was determined that Greiss was mumps-free, he was able to practice on Friday enabling the Penguins to return Zatkoff to the Baby Pens. Rotoworld.com

      Mathieu Perreault was credited with the game-winner in Winnipeg's 2-1 win over Boston on Friday.

      Advice: Evander Kane and Perreault provided the goal scoring while Michael Hutchinson did the rest of the work for the Jets in this contest. For Perreault it was his fifth of the year. Dustin Byfuglien added an assist and was named the game's number one star. Rotoworld.com

    • Flames lose seventh straight 2-1 to Stars
      Jonas Hiller was only able to stop 19-21 shots Friday night in Calgary's seventh straight loss, 2-1 to Dallas.

      Advice: Hiller failed to cover up Jamie Benn's shot off a late second period faceoff, and then failed to get over to his left in time to stop Trevor Daley's shot almost eight minutes later. Just like that, Calgary was down 2-0 and wouldn't come back. Hiller has now lost each of his last six starts, and he owns a 2.40 GAA with a .914 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Steve Mason will miss Flyers' next two games
      Steve Mason won't play on Saturday or Sunday due to an upper-body injury.

      Advice: The ailment is likely related to Mason's back. Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that the Flyers will provide an additional update on Monday. It seems reasonable to believe that Ray Emery will start in at least one, if not both, of Philadelphia's weekend games, but that's just speculation at this point. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: There was some speculation among the Flyers players that Mason might have had a back spasm, but there's been no confirmation of that. For now we can't say for certain that Mason will miss any playing time, but if he's not available on Saturday then Ray Emery will probably get the start. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Hiller will get the nod on Friday
      Jonas Hiller is expected to start on Friday.

    • 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.

    • Steve Mason solid but suffers another loss
      Steve Mason was beaten just once in regulation on 32 shots from the Panthers, but allowed two goals in the shootout on Thursday night to take a 2-1 loss to Florida.

      Advice: Mason falls to 6-10-5 this season with a .921 save percentage and 2.49 goals against average. In Mason's past 13 games, he has allowed more than three goals only twice, yet has just three victories in that span. The Flyers need to help out their goaltender more. Mason made 31 saves in Thursday's loss. Rotoworld.com

      Jonas Hiller stopped all nine shots he faced in relief of Karri Ramo on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Hiller will surely get the next start as the Flames are in a six game tailspin. Ramo was unimpressive in getting the start in this one, allowing four goals on 13 shots. But it should be noted that Hiller hasn't earned a win since Nov.18. Next up will Dallas on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • Steve Mason decent in loss to Bolts
      Steve Mason was beaten for two goals on 22 shots on Tuesday as he and the Flyers suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Lightning.

      Advice: The Flyers number one netminder can usually point to his teammates as the main reason for his struggles, but that wasn't the case tonight as Tampa Bay managed a relatively low shot total. His record falls to 6-10-4 with the loss while he possesses a 2.58 GAA and .918 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

In other words, Tuesday's contest might be Tampa Bay's only game without Bishop because of this injury.

      Advice: The Oilers are 7-19-5 this season. "We haven't given the fans what they deserve or given Dallas what he deserved," said Jordan Eberle. "We have to take accountability for that and we will. You get to know a guy on a personal level and you feel like you let him down. If that doesn't motivate you to play well you don't deserve to be here." Eberle is among the Oilers players that have underperformed this season with six goals and 18 points in 30 games.

    • Ben Bishop unlikely to dress Tuesday
      Ben Bishop (lower body) has to re-evaluated before the Lightning can provide a timetable for his return.

      Advice: He left Monday's game against Pittsburgh after the first period due to a lower-body injury. "We play in less than 24 hours, he pulled himself out, so it'd be pretty hard to go in less than 24 hours," coach Jon Cooper said. Kristers Gudlevskis or Andrei Vasilevskiy will likely join the club on an emergency basis on Tuesday night against Philadelphia. One of them will probably serve as Evgeni Nabokov's understudy.

    • Lightning G Ben Bishop injured in Pittsburgh
      Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop was injured during the Lightning's 4-2 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh Monday night.

      Advice: Evgeni Nabokov started the second period in place of Bishop, who sustained a lower-body injury in the first period. Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said it's not likely Bishop will play Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. "We play in less than 24 hours. (Bishop) pulled himself out tonight. It'd be hard to go in less than 24 hours," Cooper was quoted as saying. Bishop allowed a shorthanded goal by Penguins forward Brandon Sutter with 51 seconds remaining in the first period. He made four saves on five shots before leaving the game, which was tied 1-1 at the end of the first. Bishop has not enjoyed any success against the Pens, entering Monday's game without a win against them and a 4.43 goals-against average and .876 save percentage. He's generally a formidable goalie, however, and he is 16-6-2 this season, with a 2.35 GAA and a .913 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop between the pipes Monday
      Ben Bishop will be in net for the Bolts Monday against the Penguins.

      Advice: It’s not the best team to face but without Sydney Crosby, the Penguins are a much different and less threatening team. So Bishop will try to improve upon his 16-6-2 record in Pittsburgh against Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pens. In three career games against the Penguins, Bishop has yet to record a victory and has an ugly 4.43 goals-against-average and .876 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Del Zotto remains a healthy scratch
      Michael Del Zotto was expected by some to return to the Philadelphia Flyers against the Carolina Hurricanes, but that ended up not being the case.

      Advice: "MDZ" seemingly has some offensive potential, yet he's simply in a tough spot in his career and isn't much of a fantasy factor at this point. Naturally, Rotoworld will note if he enjoys a revitalization. Rotoworld.com

    • Teddy Purcell might get a look on top line
      There's a chance that the Edmonton Oilers might give Teddy Purcell a shot alongside Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

      Advice: Purcell's numbers have been modest (four goals, 14 points, -15 and 45 SOG in 30 games), but he has enough skill to potentially produce solid results with such strong linemates. It's a situation to watch in deeper leagues, at least. Rotoworld.com

    • Jagr isn't surprised by Voracek's success
      Jaromir Jagr isn't surprised by the fact that Jakub Voracek is in the race for the scoring title.

      Advice: "He always had the talent," Jagr said. Voracek and Jagr were both born in Kladno, Czech Republic and played together in Philadelphia in 2011-12. Voracek feels that Jagr had a strong influence on him during their time as teammates, but Jagr doesn't want to take credit for his success. "I think what helped Jake a lot, in my opinion, he got into better shape than he was before," Jagr said. "I don't think he changed as a player. Maybe he's got more confidence, but he changed the body. He is in better shape." Rotoworld.com
