    • Matt Bartkowski ejected for hit on Gionta
      Matt Bartkowski was ejected from Sunday's game against Buffalo.

      Advice: Bartkowski levelled Sabres' captain Brian Gionta with a high hit. It's difficult to tell if the head was the principal point of contact because Bartkowski is roughly six inches taller than Gionta. At the very least, the Bruins' defenseman can expect a phone call from the NHL's Department of Player Safety. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: In three games thus far as a Blackhawk, Erixon has no points, one minor penalty, and four shots on goal in 10:59 average ice time. Or, in fantasy terms, not much of any value at this time. Rotoworld.com

    • Jake Gardiner expected to return Sunday
      Jake Gardiner is expected to return to the Leafs' lineup Sunday in Chicago.

      Advice: Gardiner was a healthy scratch Saturday against Philadelphia and is expected to lineup with Morgan Rielly on their third pairing. Coming into the game, the talented Gardiner has 197 career games with 19 goals, 73 points, 209 hits, 236 blocks, and 265 shots on goal. It's hard to question a highly touted 24 year old, but perhaps it's time to recognize that at least the shine from this would-be gem is fading. Rotoworld.com

    • Panthers not impressed with PIT antics
      The Florida Panthers were not impressed with Pittsburgh's antics on Saturday night.

      Advice: "They were throwing punches after whistles and went hard to the net, forcing us to protect our goalie," said Willie Mitchell, who got into one of Florida’s five fights in the first half of the game. "The linesmen would come in and their guys threw punches over the pile. We’re not going to take them in the face so we pushed back. Some guys over there get a long leash from the league." The two teams will meet again on Monday. Rotoworld.com

    • Dion Phaneuf -4 in loss to Flyers
      Dion Phaneuf was a minus-4 in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

      Advice: This wasn't a pretty performance from the Maple Leafs. They held leads of 2-0 and 3-2 but eventually dropped the game to the Flyers. It was an uncharacteristically poor performance for Phaneuf this season. The 29-year-old is still a plus-10 this season. Teammate Nazem Kadri was also minus-4 in the game. Rotoworld.com

      Matt Irwin has been a healthy scratch for the last six games in a row.

    • Derrick Pouliot scores in NHL debut
      Derrick Pouliot scored in his NHL debut on Saturday.

      Advice: Not only did he score, but Pouliot did it on his first shot. The defenseman saw 15:07 minutes of action, including 2:28 on the power play. He was selected eighth overall in the 2012 Draft and is worth selecting in keeper pools as he had 20 points in 23 AHL games before his recall. Rotoworld.com

    • Jamie McBain has two assists on Saturday
      Jamie McBain had two assists for the Kings on Saturday.

      Advice: McBain has been a healthy scratch on a few occasions this season as it was his first game since November 29. The Kings are pretty deep on the blueline, even with Slava Voynov under suspension. It was the 11th multi-point game of 26-year-old's career and he now has a goal and five points in 10 games and a goal and four points in his last four games played. 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
