    • Henrik Sedin picks up career point 900
      Henrik Sedin became the third fastest Swedish born NHL player to crack the 900 point mark with two goals in a 5-2 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

      Advice: Henrik Sedin has been racking up points during an eight game streak. He has five goals and 13 total points over the stretch for the injury riddled Canucks. Henrik's 44 assists rank third overall in the NHL and his 59 points in 64 games is good for 19th in the league. Brother Daniel picked up two assists in the loss and now has 56 points in his own right this year. It has been a really nice bounce-back year for the Sedins, who some people thought were on the wrong side of their career's after last season's dreadful campaign. Start them in all formats confidently. Rotoworld.com

    • Antti Niemi makes 26 saves in Sharks' win
      Antti Niemi turned aside 26-of-28 shots in 6-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

      Advice: There has been a lot of talk about Niemi being shipped out of town at the trade deadline or in the offseason but he didn't let any of that bother him on this night. The win broke a three game win-less streak of starts for Niemi. Niemi's 2.64 goals-against-average is below average for number a goalie though that is likely why he will lose starts to the younger Alex Stalock down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Nieto's three points help Sharks win
      Matt Nieto scored twice and added an assist in a 6-2 win over San Jose on Tuesday.

      Advice: The goals were Nieto's fifth and sixth of the season. The 22 year-old is going to be hard pressed to eclipse his 10 goals from his rookie season last year but could with a hot streak. Logan Couture, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Chris Tierney and Melker Karlsson all got in on the scoring fun in Vancouver. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau each contributed two assists in a game that was actually closer than the final score indicated. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Scrivens light up for five goals in loss
      Ben Scrivens allowed five goals on 29 shots in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

      Advice: It was another tough night for Scrivens again as he was not surprisingly hung out to dry a few times in this game. His 21 losses, 2.97 goals-against-average and .896 save percentage rank amongst the worst in league and you aren't going to want to start him in any format for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Teddy Purcell finds the net in a loss to LA
      Teddy Purcell scored his ninth of the year in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

      Advice: It was Purcell's second goal in four games and third in six games as he is on a modest hot streak here. It is hard to find too much value on a Edmonton team that doesn't score a lot but Purcell has done what he can with nine goals and 26 points in 64 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonathan Quick makes 21 saves to earn win
      Jonathan Quick stopped 21-of-23 shots for the Kings in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

      Advice: Quick wasn't overly busy in this one and didn't have to be as the Kings scored five goals in support to help him win his 26th win. The win snapped his personal two game losing streak. He has been a little up and down this year but he still has 26 wins and a solid 2.34 goal-against-average in 54 appearances this year. Start with confidence as he usually gets better as the season grows older. Rotoworld.com

    • Anze Kopitar all-world in win over EDM
      Anze Kopitar lead the way for the Kings with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

      Advice: Kopitar was seemingly all over the ice in this game and his two assists were true artistry in hockey fashion. He added five shots and was a plus-three on the evening. He has 48 points in 60 games this season. Trevor Lewis also added a goal and two assists while Drew Doughty had two assists in the blow out win. Jeff Carter scored his team leading 21st goal shorthanded. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Smith's 31 saves not enough in loss
      Mike Smith kicked aside 31-of-34 shots in 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

      Advice: The nightmare season continues for Smith who has just 10 wins and a league leading 31 loses in 47 appearances this season. He has allowed 3 goals or more in three of his last five starts and can't be trusted with this rebuilding team in front of him. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Rieder scores lone goal in loss
      Tobias Rieder was the only Coyote to find the back of the net in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

      Advice: The 22 year-old has 9 goals and 15 points in 54 games during his first season in the NHL. He is a nice prospect on a rebuilding Arizona team. Sam Gagner and Marco Arcobello added assist on the lone goal. He could be a guy to keep an eye on later on in his career. Rotoworld.com

    • Jakob Silfverberg three points leads Ducks
      Jakob Silfverberg scored once and added two assists in Anaheim's 4-1 win over Arizona on Tuesday.

      Advice: Silfverberg was also a plus-3 on the night and added two shots in the Ducks win. The 22 year-old has 10 goals and 20 assists in 64 games this season. Andrew Cogliano scored twice and Ryan Kesler added the other goal for the Ducks. It was a nice day for the secondary scoring for the Ducks who got nothing from the top line. Rotoworld.com

    • Frederik Andersen victorious in return
      Frederik Andersen allowed just one goal on 30 shots in a 4-1 Anaheim win over Arizona on Tuesday.

      Advice: Making his first start since getting injured back on Feb. 8, it was an almost flawless effort from the Ducks' number one goalie. Arizona was obviously a great team to get him back in the flow of the NHL game. With the Ducks in a close race with Nashville for the President's trophy you have to think the Ducks will ride him hard down the stretch. He is 30-8-5 with a 2.34 goals-against-average and .917 save percentage in 45 appearances this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Cody Eakin scores OT winner against Islanders
      Cody Eakin scored the overtime winning goal for Dallas in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.

      Advice: Eakins also recorded an assist in what was his second multi-point effort in his last three outings. With Erik Cole having been shipped to Detroit and Tyler Sequin sidelined with a knee injury, Eakins could see an expanded offensive role in the short-term. Rotoworld.com

    • Kari Lehtonen snaps drought vs. Islanders
      Kari Lehtonen stopped 35 of 37 shots Tuesday en route to a 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders.

      Advice: The victory snaps a three-game losing streak for Lehtonen and improves his record to 26-13-10. Despite the shiny win-loss record, Lehtonen possesses a 2.95 GAA and a .906 save percentage; figures which have been more detrimental to his fantasy owners than they have been helpful. Rotoworld.com

    • Bobby Ryan picks up 2 points in SO loss
      Bobby Ryan scored a goal and assisted on another in Ottawa's 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota Tuesday.

      Advice: There has been virtually no attention paid to the Senators this season and as a result, Ryan's nice little effort has gone unnoticed. With 47 points in 57 contests despite very little in the way of a supporting cast, the former Duck is scoring at nearly a 70-point pace. Mika Zibanejad also scored for Ottawa in the defeat.

    • Carter Hutton and Predators dropped by NJ
      Carter Hutton was beaten twice on 23 shots, but was saddled with a loss in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Devils on Tuesday.

      Advice: Hutton received a start in place of a resting Pekka Rinne after the starter was in goal for Monday's game against the Rangers. His record falls to 6-5-4 with the loss while his GAA is 2.48 and his save percentage is .906. Rotoworld.com

    • Tye McGinn to debut on fourth line with ARZ
      Tye McGinn will debut on fourth line to the left of Joe Vitale and BJ Crombeen in Tuesday night's tilt with Anaheim.

      Advice: Through 33 games with the Sharks this season, McGinn compiled just five points, 11 PIMs, and 39 hits. For what it's worth, only Crombeen has even a modicum of fantasy value with 47 hits and 55 PIMs through 39 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Latta to play vs. Blue Jackets on Tue
      Michael Latta was made a late addition to the lineup against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

      Advice: It'll be Latta's first game after missing the previous two, and he's expected to center Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson on Washington's fourth line. Latta has only managed 41 games this season, compiling five points, 51 PIMs, and 74 hits. Rotoworld.com

    • Bollig, Stajan, Schlemko scratched vs. Flyers
      Brandon Bollig, Matt Stajan, and David Schlemko will be scratched on Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.

      Advice: Of the three, only Bollig has a modicum of fantasy value. He's collected three points, 52 PIMs, and 110 hits through 48 games this season. Over his last 10 games, Bollig has amassed a single point, 10 PIMs, and 25 hits. Rotoworld.com

    • Lupul, Phaneuf seek apology, damages
      Joffrey Lupul, Dion Phaneuf, and Dion's wife, Elisha Cuthbert, have gotten legal representation after an inappropriate Tweet made it onto a TSN broadcast.

      Advice: Gall Legge Grant & Munroe LLP have written a letter demanding that TSN formally apology and "pay a significant amount of damages to each of our clients for broadcasting a false and defamatory tweet during their trade deadline show yesterday." The author of the Tweet in question, Anthony Adragna, is also receiving a similar letter. Gall Legge Grant & Munroe LLP go on to state that a failure to comply immediately will result in a lawsuit against TSN and Adragna, per their clients instructions. The letter also states that Phaneuf and Lupul won't be talking about the matter to the media. Rotoworld.com

    • Gustav Nyquist moves to the third line
      Gustav Nyquist practiced on the third line on Tuesday.

      Advice: That's the result of Detroit acquiring Erik Cole, who skated alongside Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. Meanwhile, Nyquist practiced with Riley Sheahan and Stephen Weiss. Zetterberg is recovering from a concussion though and is questionable for Wednesday's game, so the practice lines might not end up being the ones used. Rotoworld.com
