  • Darren Helm playing well with Datsyuk, Weiss
    Darren Helm is playing alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Stephen Weiss.

    Advice: He's played there for parts of the past two games and he's picked up three assists. Helm's versatility to play center or the wing is a valuable one for coach Mike Babcock to use depending on the matchup. Helm has 10 points in 22 games this year.

  • Patrick Kaleta takes a beating in return
    Patrick Kaleta suffered more cuts when he was checked from behind into the end boards by Winnipeg's Adam Lowry on Wednesday.

    Today, 6:45 am
  • Wayne Simmonds records an assist vs. Wings
    Wayne Simmonds had an assist in the Flyers' 5-2 loss on Wednesday.

    Advice: Simmonds doesn't excel in any one category, but he'll help fantasy owners in a lot of different ways. He has eight goals, 15 points, 19 penalty minutes, and a plus-five rating in 21 games this season.
    Today, 6:44 am
  • Martin St. Louis held off scoresheet vs Tampa
    Martin St. Louis didn't record a point in his first game in Tampa Bay since demanding a trade.

    Advice: St. Louis finished with a minus-one rating as the Lightning earned a 4-3 victory over the Rangers Wednesday night. St. Louis might not have had a great return to his old team, but he's having a good season with eight goals and 17 points in 21 contests.
    Today, 6:17 am
  • J. Williams extends point streak to six games

  • Benoit Pouliot is on the injured reserve list
    Benoit Pouliot (foot) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

    Today, 6:02 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Jackets downplay Anisimov-for-Perron rumors
    Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said he's not close to making a trade.

    Advice: There's been rumors floating around that Columbus might send Artem Anisimov to Edmonton to David Perron, but Kekalainen downplayed those reports. Columbus and Edmonton have both significantly underperformed this season and it wouldn't be shocking to see them swap players in an attempt to spark something.
    Today, 5:57 am
  • Deryk Engelland misses Wednesday's game
    Deryk Engelland didn't play on Wednesday because he was feeling sick.

    Advice: It sounds like Engelland's illness wasn't serious, so he'll probably be fine to play on Saturday. He has two assists in 19 games in 2014-15.
    Today, 5:29 am
  • Calvin De Haan returned to action on Wednesday November 26.
    Yesterday, 11:35 pm
  • Logan Couture and Sharks shutout in loss
    Logan Couture fired a team high six shots on goal but was unable to find the back of the net like all his teammates in the Sharks' 1-0 loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Sharks couldn't find a way to solve Flames' goalie Karri Ramo despite out-shooting the Flames 32-19. The Sharks have really struggled to score of late and has averaged less than two goals a game over their last nine games now. It's highly unlikely this continues though as the team is getting chances and the hockey gods will eventually turn the other cheek.
    Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Karri Ramo shuts out San Jose
    Karri Ramo stopped all 32 shots fired his way on Wednesday in the Flames 2-0 win over San Jose.

    Advice: It was an impressive performance from the whole team as the Flames earned a win in the second night of a back-to-back situation on the road against a rested Sharks side. Ramo has now earned wins in three straight starts and carries a 5-2-1 record to go with a 2.54 GGA and .911 save percentage into this next start which is probably going to come sooner rather than later. Ramo continues to earn starts despite the good play of Jonas Hiller.
    Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Calvin Pickard outstanding in loss to CHI
    Calvin Pickard made 42 saves in Colorado's 3-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday.

    Advice: The rookie netminder made a number of outstanding saves to keep his team in this wild game. Pickard was making his first start since Oct. 28 at Montreal. He earned the start thanks to back-to-back wins in relief of Reto Berra on Monday and Saturday. With Semyon Varlamov sidelined with a groin injury and Berra struggling so much its highly likely he gets more starting nods.
    Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Patrick Kane gets a trio of assists in win
    Patrick Kane handed out three assists in the Blackhawks 3-2 win over Colorado on Wednesday.

    Advice: Kane was magic all night long in facilitating all of the Blackhawk goals for his fourth multi-point effort in the last five games. The Hawks superstar is officially on fire with 11 points in his last six games. Jonathan Toews, Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw were all benefactors with goals thanks to Kane’s outstanding play.
    Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Corey Crawford makes 26 saves in win over Avs
    Corey Crawford turned aside 26-of-28 shots in the Blackhawks’ 3-2 win over the Avalanche on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It was Crawford’s 10th win of the season in a nice bounce back effort from the loss in Vancouver for the Chicago number one. Crawford now has wins in six of his last eight starts and carries a stellar 1.98 goals against average to go with a .926 save percentage into this next start for the Hawks.
