  • Kris Letang has concussion, out of hospital
    Kris Letang is out of hospital but he has a concussion.

  • Victor Hedman finishes minus-3 vs. DET
    Victor Hedman finished Saturday's game against Detroit with a minus-3 rating.

    Advice: That is a season-low for Hedman. The Lightning have now lost two games in a row and losing to their divisional rivals will leave a sour taste in their mouth. Hedman has 10 goals and 37 points in 56 games this season. Despite the rough outing, Hedman is still one of the better defensemen in the NHL.

  • Oliver Lauridsen back in the minors
    The Flyers have sent Oliver Lauridsen back to the minors.

    Advice: Well that was quick! Lauridsen was recalled yesterday and sent back last night. He had a cup of coffee but we do not think that a meal was included before he was sent back. Lauridsen played 10:26 and was a minus-one in his first NHL game of the season.

  • Michael Del Zotto plays 30:18 Saturday
    Michael Del Zotto played 30:18 in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to San Jose.

    Advice: The Flyers were in big trouble as Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo were out with the flu and Luke Schenn and Andrew MacDonald were out with injuries so Del Zotto picked up a lot of the slack. Rookie Brandon Manning played 25:07 while the Flyers called up a couple of rookies in Mark Alt and Oliver Lauridsen to fill out the blueline.

  • Larsson & Greene split in the third period
    Co-coach Scott Stevens split up defensive pairing Adam Larsson and Andy Greene for the third period Saturday.

    Advice: Larsson was paired with Jon Merrill while Greene played with Damon Severson. No reason. Scotty decided he wanted to make a little change," GM Lou Lamoriello claimed. "There is no reason sometimes. It isn't that there is something wrong when those things transpire." Larsson has really come on this season and is showing why he was selected fourth overall in 2011. Do not forget about him next season.
