  • Smith wins again, beats Flames in overtime
    Mike Smith made 25 saves during Arizona's 2-1 overtime win over Calgary on Friday night.

    Advice: After stopping 20 of 21 shots through the first 40 minutes of the game, Smith was hardly tested through the end of overtime. Which is good news for all involved. The win brings his record up to 10-5-1 but he still has 45 goals against in 18 games this season. Today, 9:07 pm
  • Hanzal picks up fifth tally of the season
    Martin Hanzal picked up his fifth goal of the season in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Flames.

  • Ekman-Larsson pushes Yotes past Flames in OT
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson pushed his Coyotes past the Flames in Friday's 2-1 overtime victory.

  • Cam Atkinson scores OT winner vs. PIT
    Cam Atkinson scored the overtime winner in Friday's 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh.

    Advice: The Penguins got on the board first, but the Jackets were able to respond with two goals of their own. Atkinson scored after he was set up by Brandon Dubinsky, who made a great individual effort on the play. Atkinson is currently riding a four-game point streak and has six goals and 15 points in 23 games. Today, 7:37 pm
  • Sven Andrighetto has big night vs. Devils
    Sven Andrighetto scored a goal in regulation and the game-winner in the shootout in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils.

    Advice: With the Canadiens down 2-0 in the second period, it was Andrighetto who got Montreal on the board. The 22-year-old has looked very good since he was called up from the minors last week. He's scored in back-to-back games and now has two goals in three games. He has a nice combination of speed and skill and could be a sneaky good fantasy play if he keeps skating on Montreal's second line with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller. Today, 7:25 pm
  • Victor Rask scores in loss to Sabres
    Victor Rask scored in Carolina's 4-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

    Advice: Rask's goal at the 4:59 mark of the second period tied the game at one. Unfortunately for the 'Canes that's as close as they would get to winning the game. Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm picked up the assists on Rask's seventh goal of the season. The 22-year-old has 14 points in 22 games. Today, 7:10 pm
  • Jack Eichel scores in big win over CAR
    Jack Eichel scored in Friday's 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Eichel has eight goals and 12 points in 23 games. He's now scored in back-to-back games after six games without a goal. Josh Gorges, Brian Gionta and David Legwand also scored for the Sabres. Today, 7:08 pm
  • Zach Bogosian returned to Sabres on Friday
    Confirming an earlier item, Zach Bogosian returned to the Sabres' blue line on Friday against Carolina.

    Advice: The 25-year-old veteran defender has played in just five games this season due to injury and ineffectiveness. He has just a point, two penalty minutes, eight blocks, and 12 hits. Today, 4:20 pm
  • Gryba tags in for Reinhart vs. Red Wings
    Eric Gryba will tag in for Griffin Reinhart in Friday's match with Detroit.

    Advice: Gryba has had a nice season thus far if your league tracks tough guys, he's accumulated 25 PIMs, 36 blocks, and 39 hits through 20 games. And he does it skating 17:27 per night on the team's third pairing. Not bad, all things considered. Today, 4:05 pm
  • Sprong, Warofsky out vs. Columbus on Friday
    Daniel Sprong and David Warsofsky will each sit out Friday's tilt with Columbus.

    Advice: While Warsofsky has yet to dress for the Penguins this season, Sprong has been unable to take advantage of his opportunities. He has just two points and not much else to show for his efforts through 14 games thus far. Today, 3:58 pm
  • Evander Kane to play vs. Carolina on Friday
    Confirming an earlier item, Evander Kane will indeed play Friday night against Carolina.

    Advice: Kane will take his rightful place as the team's top left winger to the left of Ryan O'Reilly and..Sam Reinhart? Yep. Sam Reinhart. Anyway, we advise you get Kane in to your lineup if you haven't already. Today, 3:55 pm

  • Filip Forsberg records two points vs. Flyers
    Filip Forsberg had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.

    Advice: Mike Fisher netted a goal with 20 seconds left in the third period to at least give the Predators a consolation point. Roman Josi, Mike Ribeiro, and James Neal. Today, 3:26 pm

    Advice: After back-to-back shutouts, Anderson has allowed seven goals in his last two outings, including five on 36 shots in third periods. Still, coach Dave Cameron isn't complaining and compared Anderson to Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr. "(Fuhr) didn't give up the next one when the game was on the line and he had a chance to win it," said Cameron. "Andy has been exceptional the last while. Exceptional." Today, 5:08 am
