    • Tuukka Rask makes 25 saves but takes loss
      Tuukka Rask stopped 25 shots but it wasn't enough in the Bruins 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Friday.

      Advice: Rask was the tough luck loser again in the net which is becoming the all too common theme for the Bruins who have had trouble scoring this season. Rask is win-less in four straight starts now and owns a 12-10-3 record on the season. Rask has just two wins in his last 8 starts overall and carries a 2.50 goals against average and .914 save percentage into his next start. Rotoworld.com

    • Petr Mrazek solid in relief but takes loss
      Petr Mrazek was called in on relief to make 23 saves in the Red Wings 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders on Friday.

      Advice: Jimmy Howard was pulled in the first period due to a lower body injury so Mrazek had to step in. "I thought Mrazek was fantastic coming off the bench," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. Babcock failed to give any update on Jimmy Howard however so we don't know what the immediate future holds for the 22 year-old. Detroit seems to be downplaying the severity of Howard’s issue, yet it’s troublesome enough that the team sent Xavier Ouellet down to the minors in exchange for Tom McCollum in case. Stay tuned for more updates. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Seguin is having a career-year, which is saying something because he's coming off one in 2013-14. Last season he had 37 goals and 47 assists for 84 points in 80 games. Through 30 games he already has 23 goals (leads NHL) and 16 assists for 39 points. At this rate he'll easily eclipse both his goal and point totals from last year. Rotoworld.com

      Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves on 31 shots in the Ducks' 6-2 blowout loss to Ottawa on Friday.

      Advice: Brzgalov was making his first start in relief of Federik Andersen for the Ducks since signing as a free agent back on December 9. The Ducks were playing the second half of a back-to-back scenario and finishing up a five game Eastern road trip so you have to think the entire team played into this loss. Still, he may not get a lot of starts with results like these. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Flames have now lost seven straight games, but they still trail LA and Vancouver in the Pacific by only two points.

    • Flames lose seventh straight 2-1 to Stars

      Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson turned in a gem in New Jersey Wednesday night during a 2-0 shutout of the Devils.

      Advice: Anderson made 34 saves. He nearly scored an empty-net goal, too. His shot from his own goal dribbled just wide to the right with 51.8 seconds remaining in the third period. With a second left in the third, Kyle Turris ended up with the empty-netter, his second goal of the game. Despite Turris' goals, however, it was the New Jersey offense that controlled most of the play in this one. The Sens were stuck in their zone for most of the game. The Devils (11-16-6) outshot Ottawa 34-16, but Anderson could not be beaten. It was his best performance of the season and improved his record to 7-8-4.

    • Mark Giordano continues to produce for CGY
      Mark Giordano scored his eighth goal of the season on Thursday night to extend his point streak to six games.

      Advice: Giordano now has 30 points in as many games so far for Calgary.

    • Tukka Rask allows three goals on 18 shots
      Tukka Rask allowed three goals on 21 shots in a shaky 3-2 loss against the nemesis Blackhawks on Thursday night.

      Advice: 536 days after the infamous 17 second collapse to the Hawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, Rask was beaten twice on 12 shots in the first period and the mediocre B's offense could not rescue him. Rask falls to 12-9-1 this season with a .910 save percentage and 2.59 goals against average. Rotoworld.com

    • Bruins' PK struggling so far this season
      The Boston Bruins' penalty kill is currently 23rd in the NHL at 78.4%.

      Advice: Playing without Zdeno Chara has hurt Boston in several ways, including on their penalty killing unit. Surprisingly, goaltender Tuukka Rask also ranks 30th in the NHL (minimum 10 games played) with a .824 save percentage on the penalty kill. Chara will return to the Bruins' lineup on Thursday, but if Boston wants to improve their penalty killing rate, they will need their star goaltender to come up with saves. Rotoworld.com

    • Jaroslav Halak good to go vs. St. Louis
      Jaroslav Halak will indeed get the call for the Islanders on Thursday when the Islanders visit St. Louis.

      Advice: When Halak faced his former Blues teammates on Dec. 6 he allowed six goals 40 shots. He missed Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury, but he's good to return and he'll be looking for a bounce-back effort. Rotoworld.com

    • Jaroslav Halak (UBI) might start Thursday
      Jaroslav Halak (upper body) might get the nod on Thursday.

      Advice: Halak was supposed to start on Tuesday, but he wasn't 100%, so Chad Johnson ended up playing instead. Even if Halak doesn't end up starting on Thursday, it sounds like he's healthy enough to do so. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Seguin takes NHL scoring lead vs. Jets
      Tyler Seguin continued his torrid stretch with a goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.

      Advice: Despite the loss, the goal was a very meaningful one since it was Seguin's 36th point of the season and places him in sole possession of the NHL scoring lead.

      Advice: The Flames have been surprisingly good thus far, but most of the hockey world seems prepared for a precipitous fall from grace. Hiller's recent slump has dropped his record to 9-7-1 while his GAA is now 2.47 and his save percentage is .914. Rotoworld.com

    • Ducks sign Ilya Bryzgalov to one-year deal
      The Anaheim Ducks have signed Ilya Bryzgalov to a one-year contract.

      Advice: Bryzgalov won't be making his debut with Anaheim in the immediate future though as they've assigned him to the AHL on a conditioning stint. Once Bryzgalov has shaken off the rust, he'll serve as Frederik Andersen's understudy. That might not prove to be a glamorous role, but Bryzgalov is a talented, if inconsistent, goaltender. He's at the very least worth keeping a close eye on. Rotoworld.com
