    Look for Marcus Johansson (upper body) to rejoin the Capitals this week.

    Advice: Johansson was injured just before the All-Star break and has missed the last couple of weeks. He should be on the third line as Andre Burakovsky has replaced him on the second unit.

His head was a little low, I guess. At the same time, I thought I finished through his body." Today, 7:21 am
  • Bylsma wants Kane to shoot from slot more

    Advice: "Love to see him get into the area where he scored in Colorado, take advantage of his shot inside a little bit more versus just coming down the wing," coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's taken it inside with the puck when he's had it. It's more getting there without the puck, getting in those open spots and utilizing his shot on the outside."

    Braden Holtby is on pace to break the all-time record for wins in a single season.

    Advice: Holtby earned his 32nd victory in 41 starts on Saturday. Washington has only played in 50 contests, so Holtby is on pace to win 52 contests while the NHL best is 48 wins in a single season, set by Martin Brodeur in 2006-07. "I've definitely followed (Holtby)," Brodeur said. "Any time that a goalie has a special season like that, it's pretty impressive. I like him. I sat down at the draft with (Caps coach Barry Trotz) and we had a lot of conversations about the way he played and the workload. He asked what I thought about it. For me, he reminds me of me a lot. Not the way he plays or whatever, but the way he puts himself out there. He's not scared. He just wants to play. I'm sure he's playing through tons of injuries. He's a warrior out there. He just looks like that. I don't know him and I don't know if he does or not, but he's having a great year and it's not just this year. Last year, he was coming on and he's going to be good for a long time for them." Sunday, 2:40 am

    Advice: Lehner has been quite good for the Sabres since coming back from injury. Through five games he's allowed just 11 goals on 180 combined shots. That's about as good as it gets, especially on a team like Buffalo. Saturday, 3:08 pm

    Buffalo goalie Robin Lehner played well for the Sabres in a 4-2 victory over the Canadiens in Montreal Wednesday night.

    Advice: Lehner turned away 33 of the Canadiens' 35 shots. He has allowed only two goals in each of his past four starts. Lehner has a goals-against average of 2.22 and a save percentage of .938. Lehner is improving, as are the Sabres, but neither the goalie nor the team can be classified as anything more than average, at best, at this point, and so Lehner is not a wise fantasy selection just yet.

He's 23-14-3 so far in his first full season as a number one starter and has a 2.40 GAA and .914 save percentage to go with that record in 41 games. Fatigue hasn't gotten to him yet anyways it seems.

    Anthony Peluso, Paul Postma, and Adam Pardy will each be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with Dallas.
