    • Taylor Hall scores three points in SO loss
      Taylor Hall scored two goals in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss to Dallas.

      Advice: Hall also added an assist on Teddy Purcell's second period goal. The Oilers went up 5-2 in the second frame but they suffered a monumental collapse in the second half of the game. Dallas scored three unanswered goals to send the game to overtime. The goals ended an 11-game goalless streak for Hall. Mark Arcobello also scored a pair of goals for the Oilers. Rotoworld.com

    • Pavel Datsyuk scores in shootout loss to COL
      Pavel Datsyuk scored Detroit's only goal in their 2-1 shootout loss to Colorado on Sunday.

      Advice: The third period goal opened the scoring in the game, but the Wings were unable to fend off the Avalanche in a nine round shootout. Datsyuk now has 13 goals and 24 points in just 22 games. The goal breaks a three-game pointless drought for the 36-year-old. Riley Sheahan and Henrik Zetterberg picked up the assists on Datsyuk's goal. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Foligno jumped in to fight Bruins defender Matt Bartkowski after he laid out Sabres captain Brian Gionta with a controversial high hit.

We'll keep you posted on the extent of his injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Luke Gazdic, Keith Aulie scratched Sun
      Luke Gazdic and Keith Aulie were made healthy scratches against the Stars on Sunday.

      Advice: Though Gazdic racked up 127 PIMs in 67 games last season, he has just 10 in 11 games this season. With only 24 hits and no points to his name, it's tough to recommend him. Aulie has 32 PIMs, 23 hits, and no points in 12 games this season. His value is marginal at best in deep pools. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Raffl has one of each on Saturday
      Michael Raffl scored and picked up a rare assist in the Flyers 7-4 win on Saturday.

      Advice: Raffl has nine goals and two assists in 24 games this season. He is seeing time on the first line during five-on-five situations with Claude Giroux and Jakob Voracek but has seen only 10:29 minutes on the power play all season so his fantasy value takes a bit of a hit. Rotoworld.com

    • Canadiens impressed with Jiri Sekac
      Jiri Sekac picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over Ottawa.

      Advice: The 22-year-old set up Brandon Prust's first period goal. The rookie has been a pleasant surprise for the Canadiens this season. "Man can that guy skate," said teammate David Desharnais. "He’s getting better every game and you can tell he’s gaining confidence. … A lot of young guys, it’s five games up (in the NHL) and then back down to the minors. Giving (Sekac) a chance to prove himself long term has clearly been good for him." Sekac has six goals and 13 points in 27 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Max Pacioretty collects two assists vs Ottawa
      Max Pacioretty registered two assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over Ottawa.

      Advice: Pacioretty was a game-time decision after taking a hit from Clayton Stoner that sent him into the boards awkwardly on Thursday night. Not only did Pacioretty play, but he played very well. Montreal's top line of Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher just keep on producing. Pacioretty has five assists in his last three games. The 26-year-old leads the team in points with 27. Rotoworld.com

    • Nikolay Kulemin scores his sixth Saturday
      Nikolay Kulemin scored an empty net goal to seal a 3-1 win for the Islanders on Saturday.

      Advice: When the Islanders inked Kulemin in the off-season, it was thought he could return to his former glory in Toronto as the New Yorkers planned to play him with Mikhail Grabovski, his linemate with the Maple Leafs. But Kulemin is now a third liner with the capabilities to score 10-15 goals a season. He now has six. Rotoworld.com

    • No word on Lee Stempniak's illness
      There is currently no update on whether Lee Stempniak has the mumps.

      Advice: It is taking an awfully long time to determine or let everyone know as Stempniak was tested on Thursday. He has five goals and 12 points in 26 games with a plus-six rating. Rotoworld.com

    • Boone Jenner (back) out one-two months
      Boone Jenner will miss the next one-two months with a stress fracture in his lower back.

      Advice: This is a big loss for the Blue Jackets as Jenner is a strong two-way player. Jenner had been hot of late as he had five goals during the Blue Jackets seven game winning streak that ended on Thursday. Reserve him for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Justin Shugg sent to the minors
      The Carolina Hurricanes have sent Justin Shugg back to the minors.

      Advice: Shugg played in three games as he made his NHL debut earlier in the week. He was held pointless but he should return for another audition later in the season, especially if he continues to score in the AHL like he had before his recall. He had nine goals in 17 games for Charlotte in the AHL. Rotoworld.com

    • Hurricanes take Alexander Semin off IR
      The Carolina Hurricanes have activated Alexander Semin (lower body) off the injured reserve list.

      Advice: The move occurred after the Rangers game on Saturday so Semin is slated to play on Sunday when the Hurricanes and Rangers play the back end of the home-and-home series. Semin has been a huge disappointment this season with only six points as he has also been a healthy scratch from time-to-time. Put him in your lineup if that is what you would normally do.

    • 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
