    • Canucks coach: Hansen OK after brief collapse
      Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said that Jannik Hansen is OK after collapsing on the bench.

      Advice: Hansen needed to be helped to the bench after a hit in the second period, then collapsed briefly on the bench. He didn’t return to the game as a precaution, but passed the tests at the hospital. "Everything looks good. Real good," Desjardins said. Rotoworld.com

    • Brent Burns scores GWG in OT against Blues
      Brent Burns scored the game-winning goal in overtime to help the Sharks defeat the Blues on Saturday night 3-2.

      Advice: Burns scored with 37.5 seconds left in the frame, a power play tally with assists from Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture. The goal was Burns’ 10th of the season, to go with 26 points, so he’s clearly been one of the more valuable defensemen from a fantasy perspective. Andrew Desjardins and Marc-Edouard Vlasic picked up the other markers. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrik Berglund pots fourth goal in OT loss
      Patrik Berglund netted a goal for the Blues in their 3-2 loss in overtime to the Sharks on Saturday night.

      Advice: While the Blues have gotten contributions from many of their younger players, Berglund continues to be a pretty big disappointment. He has just four goals and 11 points on the season. Steve Ott scored his first of the season in the loss, and he also had seven hits. Rotoworld.com

    • Antti Niemi gives up two in second in win
      Antti Niemi blocked 18 of 20 shots in San Jose’s 3-2 victory against the Blues on Saturday night.

      Advice: Niemi gave up both goals in the second period. He did just enough to escape with his seventh straight win. Niemi has a 2.42 goals-against average and .917 save percentage this season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Alex Stalock get the start against the Ducks on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    • Jake Allen makes 27 saves as Blues fall in OT
      Jake Allen gave up three goals on 30 shots in the Blues’ 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose on Saturday night.

      Advice: The overtime loss halts a mini three-game winning streak, though Allen has gotten the Blues at least a point in four straight games now. He was 21 seconds away from winning in regulation. Even with Martin Brodeur around, Jake Allen has firmly entrenched himself as the top netminder. He has a 2.49 goals-against average and .907 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Radim Vrbata gets PPG goal in OT victory
      Radim Vrbata potted a goal for the Canucks in their 3-2 overtime win over the Flames on Saturday night.

      Advice: Vrbata’s 13th goal of the year came on the power play, his sixth power-play goal of the season. The 33-year-old now has 24 points in 30 games. Yannick Weber and Christopher Tanev, with the winner 18 seconds into overtime, picked up the other goals. Daniel Sedin recorded two helpers. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Miller snaps 3-game skid, wins in OT
      Ryan Miller set aside 26 shots in the Canucks’ 3-2 overtime win against Calgary on Saturday night.

      Advice: Miller needed a performance like this in a big way, as he had lost three straight and really hasn’t been all that great this season. Despite three shutouts, Miller has just a 2.65 goals-against average and .901 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny Gaudreau scores seventh goal in loss
      Johnny Gaudreau got a goal for the Flames in their 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks on Saturday night.

      Advice: Gaudreau’s goal at 7:05 tied the game up at 2 in the third period. The 21-year-old rookie now has seven goals and 24 points this year, certainly solid numbers from someone with such limited experience at the pro level. David Jones scored the other marker. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Hiller makes 30 saves in OT loss
      Jonas Hiller made 30 saves as the Flames fell 3-2 in overtime to the Canucks on Saturday night.

      Advice: This effort should be plenty good enough to get Hiller the majority of the starts in the near future. Even though he hasn’t won since Nov. 18, Hiller has given up two goals in each of his last three starts. He has a 2.38 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Alex Galchenyuk stays hot with two points
      Alex Galchenyuk tallied two points in the Canadiens’ 4-1 win over the Senators on Saturday night.

      Advice: Galchenyuk scored and assisted. Stardom is in the offing for the 20-year-old. Galchenyuk has points in three straight games, and six over that span. He has 10 goals and 24 points in 34 games. Brandon Prust, Brendan Gallagher and Tomas Plekanec picked up the other goals. Max Pacioretty chipped in with two helpers. Rotoworld.com

    • Alexander Semin skates, still out with LBI
      Alexander Semin participated in Saturday’s morning skate, but he remains out with a lower-body injury.

      Advice: Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said that Semin is very close to returning, so perhaps that comes Sunday in the second of a back-to-back with the Rangers. Semin hasn’t played since Dec. 7. He has six points this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Bournival to sit vs. Senators
      Michael Bournival will sit against the Senators on Saturday night.

      Advice: In 13 combined games between Montreal and AHL Hamilton, Bournival has four goals and nine points. However, all of the goals and eight of the points have come in Hamilton despite a near even split in games played. Rotoworld.com

    • Ehrhoff to miss at least three games
      Christian Ehrhoff will miss at least three games after exiting Thursday's game with a lower body injury.

      Advice: Ehrhoff has two goals and 10 points in 31 games this season, largely a disappointment to poolies everywhere. Though one might imagine not so much to the Penguins. Rotoworld.com

      Injured Reserve
    • Zibanejad white hot on effective line
      Mika Zibanejad has enjoyed tremendous success on a line with Mike Hoffman and Bobby Ryan.

      Advice: The three had a combined six points against the Ducks in a 6-2 win Friday night. Zibanejad has been white hot in the month of December with 11 points in nine games. If for some reason he is a free agent in your hockey pool, pick him up. Rotoworld.com

    • Adam Larsson recalled from the minors
      Adam Larsson will be available on Saturday as he played one game in the minors on a conditioning stint before being recalled.

      Advice: Larsson was out with the mumps and could draw back into the Devils lineup against Washington. He has a goal and four points this season in 17 games. Larsson has been a disappointment since going fourth overall in 2011, but to be fair, it does take defensemen a lot longer to establish themselves than it takes forwards in the NHL. Rotoworld.com

    • Hampus Lindholm out with lower body injury
      Hampus Lindholm sat out Friday's game with a lower body injury.

      Advice: Lindholm missed the last 10 minutes of action on Thursday in Montreal and although he managed to take the pregame skate, the Ducks deemed that it was better to err on the side of caution. "He’s just not feeling right," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It’s a day-to-day thing. I’m sure that he’ll be fine. We weren’t going to take any chances on Hampus. We’ve had nothing but injuries this year. And we’re not putting a guy out there that wasn’t feeling 100 percent." He has two goals and 15 points this season and is worth a pickup in most fantasy pools. Rotoworld.com
