    • Lauri Korpikoski might be back Saturday
      Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) could be ready for Saturday's game versus Anaheim.

      Advice: He skated on Tuesday morning, but missed his fourth straight contest with a lower-body injury. "(Dec.) 27th I would think that he would be ready but with his injury, there's an easy chance of re-hurting it," coach Dave Tippett said. "So the three days off will give him insurance that way."

    • Shawn Thornton (groin) still recovering
      Shawn Thornton has been dealing with a groin injury since the beginning of the season.

      Advice: He has missed the last seven games due to the ailment. "It's been there basically since the first game of the year and it's gotten progressively worse," Thornton said. "I was going to take some time off there but we were short bodies and I played through it. Once guys got healthy, it would have been selfish for me to try and play through it. It's time to get it healed for the playoff push." Florida enters the Christmas break just two points behind Washington for the last Wild Card spot in the East. Thornton won't supply much offense when he's able to return, but he can add toughness and leadership. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The incident occurred on Monday when he hit Anaheim forward Tim Jackman in front of the Ducks goal.

    • Taylor Beck earns 2 points in loss to Bruins
      Taylor Beck had a goal and an assist in Nashville's 5-3 loss to Boston on Tuesday night.

      Advice: He gave the Predators a chance at a third-period rally when he made it 4-3 early in the frame, but Nashville couldn't get the equalizer and Loui Eriksson sealed the win for Boston with an empty netter. Beck also added an assist in the match to give him eight points in 25 outings. Rotoworld.com

    • Landeskog getting points, but not goals
      Gabriel Landeskog earned a pair of helpers in a 5-0 win against St. Louis on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Both of assists came on the power play. His goalless slump extended to 10 games, but he has contributed eight assists during that time. The 22-year-old captain liked what he saw from his teammates. "We played like a team tonight," Landeskog said. "We were hungry, with an opportunity to have our first three-game winning streak of the season. We came out hard and kept pushing, and got some big goals at key times." Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan O'Reilly posts 2 power-play points
      Ryan O'Reilly accounted for two points in Tuesday's win over St. Louis.

      Advice: He earned an assist on a power-play goal by Zach Redmond and he scored a power-play marker of his own in Colorado's 5-0 victory. O'Reilly led the Avalanche with 28 goals last year, but he's found the back of the net just six times in 2014-15. He's generated 19 points in 34 games Rotoworld.com

    • Brad Richards is expected to return Saturday
      Brad Richards (upper body) is projected to return to the lineup on Saturday.

      Advice: He participated in Tuesday's morning skate, but the decision was made to give him some extra time to recover from an upper-body injury. "If we didn't have this three-day break maybe it would be different," Richards said. "Why not take advantage of it? You always want to play but the long-term picture is not (Tuesday night's) game. The second half (of the season) is going to be busy. When we get back from this break I'll be refreshed and I full play on being ready to go." Prior to missing two games with the ailment, Richards had gone pointless in seven straight appearances. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Tampa's second line was excellent on the night, with three goals coming from Tyler Johnson and three assists being posted by Ondrej Palat. "That line hasn't really been together for a couple of weeks now, but they are finally back healthy," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "They showed what they can do, and it was pretty impressive."

      Chris Kelly registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

      Advice: He earned the secondary helper on both of Loui Eriksson's goals. Kelly has fit in nicely on a line with Eriksson and Carl Soderberg this season. He will enter the Christmas break riding a five-game point streak (one goal, five assists). Rotoworld.com

    • Evgeny Kuznetsov scores in losing effort
      Evgeny Kuznetsov scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

      Advice: Kuznetsov has four goals and 13 points in 32 contests in 2014-15. He's got a lot of offensive upside, so he'll be worth keeping in mind for 2015-16 fantasy drafts even if he doesn't put up big numbers this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Kunitz scores for first time since injury
      Chris Kunitz scored a goal in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

      Advice: Kunitz was playing in his third game since returning from a fractured foot. He has 10 goals and 21 points in 26 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Vincent Lecavalier gets 3rd goal in 2 games
      Vincent Lecavalier found the back of the net in Philadelphia's 5-2 win over Minnesota.

      Advice: Lecavalier also had two goals on Sunday, but we're still skeptical about his potential for the rest of the season. While his recent offensive outburst certainly helps, the big question is if it has been enough to win over coach Craig Berube. Lecavalier only logged 12:56 minutes on Tuesday and just 10:40 minutes in his two-goal game. Until his ice time goes up significantly, it will be hard to bet on him enjoying sustained success.

    • Tuomo Ruutu gets more ice time in December
      Tuomo Ruutu recorded an assist in a 2-1 shootout loss to Carolina on Tuesday.

      Advice: Ruutu has five goals and seven points in 34 games this season. He has only averaged 11:26 minutes per contest in 2014-15, although he's been getting more responsibility lately as the Devils try to get by with several key injured forwards. Ruutu has averaged 14:16 minutes in December. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Staal inches closer to his return
      Hurricanes coach Bill Peters thinks Jordan Staal (leg) might return on Monday.

      Advice: That's in line with his previous predictions, but the closer we get to that date, the more likely Staal's return seems to be. It will be interesting to see if the Hurricanes ease Staal into the lineup given that he's missed the entire season to date. In that vein, we recommend tempering your early expectations for Staal as he might need some time to get up to speed. Rotoworld.com

    • Alex Tanguay records 2 points in win
      Alex Tanguay scored a goal and added an assist for the Avalanche in Tuesday's 5-0 shutout win over St. Louis.

      Advice: Tanguay continues to be one of the more underappreciated players in the fantasy game, as his 24 points would surely be of use to a lot of teams. Jerome Iginla, Erik Johnson, Ryan O'Reilly and Zach Redmond all chipped in with goals for Colorado in the victory. Rotoworld.com

    • Tomas Tatar blasts Sabres with two goals
      Tomas Tatar registered a pair of goals Tuesday as the Red Wings upended Buffalo by a score of 6-3.

A number of other members of the Wings got in on the action in this contest as Gustav Nyqvist dished out three assists while Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, Stephen Weiss and Danny DeKeyser all scored goals in the win.
