    Advice: Ennis is projected to play alongside Kyle Okposo and Ryan O'Reilly. This will be his first game since Nov. 7. He has a goal and two points in 12 games this season, but is capable of much more than those numbers suggest going forward. Today, 8:18 am

    Matt Beleskey (knee) was a partial participant in Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Beleskey is inching back from an injury that's sidelined him since Dec. 3. He's been skating by himself for a while now, but they're now starting to test some contact with him too. Today, 8:07 am

    Advice: That is good news as Carlson was forced to leave the game after playing only 6:38 in Sunday's win over Philadelphia. Carlson could suit up but if he is unable to go then Taylor Chorney will draw in as the Capitals are not recalling anyone. Carlson has five goals and 25 points in 43 games with a plus-ten rating. He should be on someone's roster when healthy. Today, 6:38 am
  • Philipp Grubauer to play more short-term
    Look for Philipp Grubauer to get the start in three of the Capitals next eight games.

    Advice: As good as starter Braden Holtby has been this season, Grubauer is matching him every step of the way with an 8-1-1 mark to go with a 1.74 GAA and a .935 save percentage. Coach Barry Trotz suggested that Grubauer will play once during the upcoming Dad's trip and with the Capitals having a pair of back-to-back games upcoming, he will get a start in each of those games. He is worth putting on your roster as he has been great this season. Today, 6:35 am
  • Joonas Donskoi skates on Sunday
    Joonas Donskoi (upper body) skated on Sunday.

    Advice: Donskoi was hurt on Wednesday and hasn't played since. He does not want to re-injure it and with the All-Star break occurring next week, it may be prudent to let him rest until after the break. He has only six goals and 14 points in 41 games this season. Today, 6:24 am
  • Milan Lucic wins hardest shot in Edmonton
    Milan Lucic won the hardest shot in Edmonton's super skills competition Sunday.

    Advice: Lucic's shot was 102.7 MPH. That's nice but Lucic has gone 10 games without a goal and it has been 17 games since he scored at even strength. Poolies who took Lucic in part for his penalty minute totals have been so disappointed this season as he has only 18. Even teammate Connor McDavid has more with 20. It's been a tough go of things of late for the tough winger who has nine goals and 26 points this season. Today, 4:20 am
  • Rickard Rakell scores in Anaheim's loss
    Rickard Rakell notched Anaheim's only goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to St. Louis on Sunday night.

    Advice: Rakell has racked up 18 goals and 26 points through 35 games this season. The 23-year-old seems to have snapped out of a five-game pointless drought to ring in 2017. Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Grubauer collects second shutout of career
    Philipp Grubauer collected the second shutout of the season, and career, by stopping all 24 pucks the Flyers sent his way in the 5-0 matinee win on Sunday.

    Advice: The young understudy was simply sensational, turning away all nine Philadelphia power play shots across five opportunities. To wit, the Caps didn't score until mid-way through the game and then potted four in the third period. Suffice it to say, Grubauer was their backbone today and improves his record to 8-1-1 thus far. Yesterday, 12:33 pm
  • John Carlson exits Sunday with LBI
    John Carlson left Sunday's match with Philadelphia early with a lower body injury.

  • Philipp Grubauer to start on Sunday
    Philipp Grubauer will get the start in goal for Washington Sunday.

    Advice: Grubauer was last between the pipes on January 3 when he replaced Braden Holtby at the start of the second period and stopped 15 of 17 shots in leading the Capitals to a 6-5 overtime win over Toronto. On the year Grubauer is 7-1-1 with a 1.94 GAA and a .929 save percentage, amazing stats for a backup goalie. Start him if you can on Sunday. Yesterday, 7:38 am
  • Heed, Carpenter out vs Blues on Saturday

He's up to 17 goals already this season. His career high is 20 that recorded last season. Ryan Kesler also picked up his 17th of the season while Corey Perry and Jakob Silfverberg also added tallies. Thursday, 9:57 pm
  • Ben Bishop wins in long-awaited return
    Ben Bishop stopped 24 of 26 shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

    Advice: After missing nine games with a lower-body injury, the Lightning finally got their starting goaltender back tonight. Despite having not played since Dec. 20, Bishop turned in a solid overall performance. With Andrei Vasilevskiy struggling badly right now, don't be surprised if Bishop reclaims his number one job with ease. He has a 10-10-2 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage in 2016-17. Thursday, 8:37 pm

Ennis may get back in the fold sometime this week. Jan 9, 3:31 pm
  • Rickard Rakell playing center for Ducks
    Rickard Rakell is back at center after spending most of the season on the wing.

    Advice: Coach Randy Carlyle thinks that Rakell should be in the middle and with Ryan Getzlaf out of action the past three games, it was the perfect time to make the move. "It’s been pretty fun actually," Rakell said. "I’ve had the puck more. Even though I think we’re still creating some chances, we could be more productive. We’re just trying to get better going forward. It’s been going up and down through the whole season. Just trying to get better." Rakell has 16 goals and 23 points in 31 games and is a minus-one so he should be in someone's lineup in most pools. Jan 9, 3:44 am
