  • Richard Bachman (personal) won't dress Wed.
    Richard Bachman won't be available for Edmonton on Wednesday because of a death in his family.

    Advice: He has posted two wins for the Oilers in his past two outings and he's stopped 58 of the 59 shots he has faced during that time. Our deepest condolences go to him and his family for their loss.

  • Leafs send down Sam Carrick
    Sam Carrick has been reassigned to the minors.

    Advice: In 16 games with the Maple Leafs this season, he has contributed a goal and an assist. He doesn't have any fantasy value.
    Today, 9:37 am
  • Morgan Rielly scores in win over Tampa Bay
    Morgan Rielly potted his eighth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay.

    Advice: He found the back of the net just 24 seconds into the third period when he jumped into the rush. Rielly has earned a point in three straight games to give him 28 on the year.
    Today, 9:34 am
  • Drew Miller leaves with deep face lacerations
    Drew Miller sustained two deep lacerations on his face in Tuesday's game versus Ottawa.

    Advice: Mark Stone's skate caught Miller under his visor, but the good news is that it missed his eye. He wasn't able to return to the game.
    Today, 8:03 am
  • Wings will stick with Petr Mrazek on Thursday
    Petr Mrazek will be back in goal for Thursday's game against Boston.

    Advice: Coach Mike Babcock made the call after Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators. Mrazek was excellent in the match despite the defeat, so he'll start for a third straight contest.
    Today, 7:55 am
  • Ovechkin one of six with six 50-goal seasons
    With a goal on Tuesday, Alex Ovechkin became the sixth player in the history of the league to have at least six 50-goal seasons.

    Advice: The other five are Guy Lafleur, Mike Bossy, Wayne Gretzky, Marcel Dionne, and Mario Lemieux. Ovechkin is just 29 years old, but he already has 472 goals in 755 games. That's good enough for 53rd place on the NHL's all-time list and puts him just one behind Denis Savard and Alexander Mogilny.
    Today, 7:34 am
  • Nick Bonino is on a three-game point streak
    Nick Bonino had two assists in Vancouver's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bonino extended his point streak to three games. He has 15 goals and 37 points in 70 contests in 2014-15. It's worth noting that he's been streaky this season with him scoring 19 points in his first 23 contests and 12 points in his last 17 games, but just six points in the 30 games that separate those two hot patches.
    Today, 7:29 am
  • Loui Eriksson nets 20th goal of the year
    Loui Eriksson opened the scoring in Boston's 3-2 win over Florida on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He potted his 20th goal late in the first period. Florida scored twice in the second and Boston answered with two markers in the third to claim the victory. Eriksson produced six goals and nine points in 15 games during March.
    Today, 7:25 am
  • Alex Stalock is the likely starter Wednesday
    Alex Stalock is projected to make his third straight start Wednesday.

    Advice: The Sharks have been going easy on Antti Niemi because he's been battling an illness. Stalock has a 2.55 GAA and .905 save percentage in 19 contests this season.
    Today, 7:23 am
  • Mike Brown (leg) might return Wednesday
    Mike Brown (leg) might be available for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Daniil Tarasov has already been returned to the minors in what could be interpreted as a move in preparation for Brown's return. Brown hasn't played since Dec. 9 and has only participated in eight games with San Jose in 2014-15.
    Today, 7:21 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Rick Nash has 66 points in 75 games
    Rick Nash recorded an assist in a 3-2 victory against Winnipeg on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nash has 40 goals and 66 points in 75 games this season. This is the third time he's reached the 40-goal mark in his career. He still has a decent chance of also making this the second time in his career that he's recorded at least 70 points.
    Today, 6:51 am
  • Chris Kreider nets a goal against Winnipeg
    Chris Kreider scored a goal in a 3-2 win over Winnipeg.

    Advice: Kreider has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 21 goals and 42 points in 74 contests in 2014-15.
    Today, 6:49 am
  • Adam Henrique has a solid March
    Adam Henrique had an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina on Tuesday.

    Advice: Henrique snapped a five-game scoring drought. Despite that cold stretch, March was a relatively good month for him as he scored four goals and nine points in 14 games.
    Today, 6:37 am
  • Alexander Wennberg records assist in return
    Alexander Wennberg had an assist in Columbus' 3-2 overtime win versus New Jersey.

    Advice: Wennberg returned after missing four straight games with a hand injury. He has three goals and 17 points in 62 contests in 2014-15.
    Today, 6:23 am
  • Don't count on 2015-16 comeback for Semin
    Alexander Semin registered an assist in a 4-2 loss Tuesday night.

    Advice: Semin has five goals and 18 points in 51 contests in 2014-15. He's got a history of inconsistency and in this case fantasy owners might take some comfort in that as it suggests that a bounce back season in 2015-16 is not only possible, but wouldn't be out of the ordinary. Even still, we wouldn't recommend taking him until the end of 2015-16 standard league drafts, if you grab him at all.
    Today, 6:16 am
  • John-Michael Liles had an assist Tuesday
    John-Michael Liles had an assist in Carolina's 4-2 loss to Washington.

    Advice: Liles has two goals and 19 points in 51 contests in 2014-15. At the age of 34, it appears that his days as a noteworthy offensive contributor in standard fantasy leagues are over.
    Today, 6:13 am
  • Jiri Hudler crushes competition in March
    Jiri Hudler led the league in points for the month of March.

    Advice: It wasn't even close. Hudler had 10 goals and 23 points in 15 contests last month. The next best player was Radim Vrbata with 18 points in 16 games. It also shattered Hudler's previous career-high point total for any month (15 set November 2014). His recent efforts are one of the big reasons Calgary still occupies a playoffs spot.
    Today, 6:08 am
  • Boudreau pushes Ryan Getzlaf for the Hart
    Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau thinks Ryan Getzlaf should be in the running for the Hart Trophy.

    Advice: "I certainly would vote for him, but at the same time, the Canadian media – and there’s a little more of them – will be going for Carey Price," Boudreau said. "If I'm looking at what we've done, what we've accomplished, who our leader is every night then Ryan Getzlaf is the guy." Statistically, Getzlaf is a hard sell. He has 24 goals and 68 points in 75 games, which is certainly good, but there are 11 forwards with more points than him. In addition to Price, Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, and John Tavares are among those that are serious contenders for the award.
    Today, 6:01 am
  • Mike Fisher picks up 2 points in loss
    Mike Fisher scored a goal and added an assist for Nashville in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Vancouver.

    Advice: The veteran center has enjoyed perhaps the best offensive season of his career, but it has gone nearly unnoticed due to the fact he began the season nursing an injury. With 39 points in 57 contests, he has been scoring at nearly a 60-point rate over a full schedule. Taylor Beck, Cody Franson and Viktor Stalberg also scored for the Preds in the defeat.
