    Sam Gagner led the Blue Jackets to a 4-1 victory on Monday with two goals and two assists.

    Advice: Gagner was limited to just eight goals and 16 points in 51 games with Philadelphia last season, but he seems to have turned his career around in Columbus. After Monday's showing he now has 10 goals and 17 points in 23 games this season. Nick Foligno and Zach Werenski each found the back of the net for the Blue Jackets. Cam Atkinson assisted on two of Columbus' four goals. Yesterday, 7:43 pm

  • Marcus Johansson scores twice, including GWG
    Marcus Johansson scored two goals, including the overtime marker, in Washington's 3-2 win over Buffalo Monday night.

    Advice: Those were Johansson's 10th and 11th goals in 24 games this season. To give that some context, he has never scored more than 20 markers in a single campaign, so he's currently on pace to shatter his personal best. He also remarkably already has five game winners. Jay Beagle scored Washington's other goal. Evgeny Kuznetsov, Justin Williams, Daniel Winnik, John Carlson, Dmitry Orlov, and Brooks Orpik each registered an assist. Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • David Pastrnak leads Bruins with two goals

  • Predators recall Marek Mazanec
    Marek Mazanec has been summoned by the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: Mazanec was demoted on Nov. 24 after he struggled in three contests with Nashville. He then posted a 2.73 GAA and .886 save percentage in five AHL games. He'll serve as Pekka Rinne's understudy while goalie Juuse Saros returns to the AHL so that he can play more regularly. Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • D. Dorsett has been less than 100% for years
    Derek Dorsett, who will undergo cervical fusion surgery due to disc degeneration in his neck, has been dealing with this issue for five or six years.

    Advice: So if you're looking for a silver lining, maybe Dorsett will be feeling better than he has in a long time should he make a full recovery as the Canucks expect him to do. That being said, it's not yet known how long it will take him to recover from this procedure. He's in the second season of a four-year, $10.6 million deal. Yesterday, 1:34 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • D. Dorsett out indefinitely, to have surgery
    Derek Dorsett is scheduled to undergo cervical fusion surgery.

    Advice: Dorsett has disc degeneration in his neck and this surgery will address that. It's expected that he'll be able to make a full recovery, but what's not clear is how long it will take him to get back to the point where he can play. Vancouver isn't providing a timetable, citing the nature of the procedure as the reason for that. "The decision to perform surgery was made after a thorough review of our options, including non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "Derek, our Canucks medical team and Dr. Watkins believe that surgery offers the best outcome both for his career and long-term health. Derek is an important member of our team and we are optimistic for a full recovery." Yesterday, 12:34 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Braden Holtby will likely start on Monday
    Braden Holtby will probably start for Washington on Monday.

    Advice: Holtby is looking to snap a three-game losing streak. He has a 10-6-2 record, 2.16 GAA, and .922 save percentage in 18 contests this season. Yesterday, 8:52 am
  • James van Riemsdyk nets his 100th Leafs goal
    James van Riemsdyk's goal on Saturday was his 100th as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Advice: van Riemsdyk is the 55th player to score at least 100 goals in a Leafs jersey. Over his career he has 147 goals and 297 points in 470 contests between his time with Toronto and Philadelphia. "That’s a pretty big honor," said van Riemsdyk of his 100th Leafs goal. "I have really enjoyed playing in Toronto and that (milestone) shows I’ve been playing here a few years now. Hopefully, I can play here a lot longer." Yesterday, 8:34 am
  • Patrick Kane picks up an assist on Sunday
    Patrick Kane recorded an assist in Chicago's 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.

    Advice: Kane is on a three-game point streak. He has eight goals and 26 points in 27 contests in 2016-17. Yesterday, 7:49 am
  • John Carlson still can't find the back of net
    John Carlson has yet to score this season.

    Advice: The offensive defenseman has played 23 games with nine assists thus far but is second on the Capitals in shots on goal with 57. He had eight goals and 39 points in only 56 games last season so his lack of production is a concern to his fantasy owners. "Carly is such a talent, and I think this one of the few times in Carly’s career, which is sort of good for Carly in fact, it’s not coming really easy for him," coach Barry Trotz said. "He got off to a slow start, a little bit nicked up through the World Cup and the start of our season, and now he’s playing catch-up. Now, maybe you’re not having the success that you’ve had in the past. I don’t want to say doubt creeps in, but you start to look for different ways to have success and different ways to do that. Sometimes, as I said, the doubt creeps in or you get frustrated. When you’re frustrated, it’s just not a good energy." Yesterday, 7:00 am
  • Michal Neuvirth expected to skate on Monday
    Michal Neuvirth (knee) is expected to start skating again on Monday and hopefully return to the Flyers lineup in 10 days.

    Advice: Neuvirth was projected to miss four-six weeks so this will be on the early side of the prognostication if true. Neuvirth was 4-2 with a .859 save percentage and a GAA of 3.54 before his injury and should get about 40 percent of the starts once he returns to action. Use him accordingly. Yesterday, 6:21 am
  • Jaccob Slavin has seven shots on goal Sunday
    Jaccob Slavin led the Carolina Hurricanes with seven shots on goal Sunday.

    Advice: The defenseman had only 32 in 24 games heading into action Sunday so this came out of nowhere. Slavin has a goal and seven points in 25 games and while he has some offensive upside, it hasn't translated into points thus far. Yesterday, 4:21 am
  • Brendan Perlini the AHL's rookie of the month
    Brendan Perlini was the NHL's rookie of the month for November.

    Advice: Perlini was recalled by the Coyotes Sunday and deservedly so as he had nine goals and 12 points. The 20-year-old had 25 goals and 45 points in 57 OHL games last season in an off-year offensively, but he has turned things around this season in his first as a professional. Yesterday, 4:01 am
  • Patrick Maroon scores in Oilers loss vs. MIN
    Patrick Maroon's eighth goal of the year was all the Oilers could manage against the Wild on Sunday night.

    Advice: The Oilers fell 2-1 in overtime against Minnesota, but Maroon reached the scoresheet for his third consecutive game. The 28-year-old now has eight goals and 13 points in 27 games. Sunday, 9:22 pm
  • Ben Bishop, Bolts fall in OT vs. Carolina
    Ben Bishop was out-dueled by Cam Ward in a tense, 1-0 showdown on Sunday between Tampa Bay and Carolina.

  • Coyotes summon Brendan Perlini from AHL
    Brendan Perlini has been summoned from the AHL on Sunday.

    Advice: The 20-year-old forward is having a career season with Tuscon, posting 11 goals and 16 points in 16 games thus far. He has yet to make his NHL debut, however. Sunday, 2:30 pm
  • Lightning tab Ben Bishop vs Carolina on Sun
    The Lightning have chosen to go with Ben Bishop against Carolina on Sunday.

    Advice: Don't look now but Bishop is starting to round into shape. Over his last 11 games he may be 5-6 but he boasts a .922 save percentage and just 25 goals against over that span. Sunday, 2:02 pm
  • Beleskey sustains hip injury Saturday
    The injury sustained Saturday night by Matt Beleskey is to his right hip and could sideline him for at least a few games.

    Advice: He took a clean hip check from Sabre defenseman Taylor Fedun and left the game with seconds left in the first period. Beleskey will be re-evaluated Monday. For now consider him day-to-day. Sunday, 5:51 am
  • Braden Holtby impressive in loss to Bolts
    Braden Holtby dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night, but he was impressive nonetheless with a save percentage of .970.

    Advice: Holtby faced 33 shots and let only one get past him for his best outing since a shutout win over the Red Wings November 18th. Unfortunately, this is his third straight loss and his fourth in the past five games. Saturday, 8:49 pm
  • Ben Bishop has 34 stops in win over Caps
    Ben Bishop faced 35 shots and stopped all but one of them as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 Saturday night.

    Advice: Bishop needed an outing like this. He has been on a freefall in recent events with a four-game losing streak that witnessed a save percentage of no more than .900. His season mark plummeted to .902, which probably meant he was not on very many radar screens. Blocking 34 of 35 shots Saturday night gave him a .971, however, and will undoubtedly raise his salary cap in coming contests. Saturday, 8:44 pm
  • Beleskey leaves Sat vs Buffalo with LBI
    Matt Beleskey left Saturday's match with Buffalo early with a lower body injury.

    Advice: The wing absorbed a hit from Taylor Fedun that primarily effected his right leg, which is the likely injury. Nothing is known just yet, but we'll keep you posted on his status. Consider him day-to-day for now. Saturday, 6:28 pm
  • Pastrnak now has an assist-streak
    David Pastrnak is now the proud owner of an assist-streak.

    Advice: Well, it's just two games. But that's still a streak of sorts. The young phenom is up to 13 goals and 19 points in 20 games this season, so it all looks like gravy on the fantasy stat sheet. Saturday, 5:05 pm
  • Slavin picks up seventh point of season
    Jacob Slavin picked up his seventh point of the season during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: It was his sixth helper of the season. Through the first 87 games of his career, the talented defender has just 27 points. While he could find his scoring touch eventually, we wouldn't expect a sudden surge. Saturday, 4:34 pm
  • Patrick Kane picks up another point
    Patrick Kane picked up another point during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

    Advice: American's best player continues to rack up the points. Kane picked up his 17th helper gives him 25 points in 26 games this season. Simply remarkable. Saturday, 3:43 pm
  • Ben Bishop gets the start vs Capitals on Sat
    It'll be Ben Bishop in Tampa's net on Saturday against the Capitals.

    Advice: Bishop has been mired in a four-game slide, allowing 13 goals in that span. Albeit it the latest was in a relief effort. All that said, he's been vastly better against Eastern foes. In 12 starts he's 7-5 with a 2.94 GAA with a .911 save percentage. Saturday, 1:06 pm
  • Capitals go with Braden Holtby vs Tampa Bay
    Stop the presses, the Capitals will go with Braden Holtby against the Lightning on Saturday.

    Advice: Holtby has been in a rare slide lately, allowed 10 goals and winning just once over his last four starts. For the season he rocks a .919 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA. Saturday, 1:03 pm
  • Maroon ends nine-game goal drought
    Patrick Maroon ended his nine-game goal drought during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Maroon collected just a pair of helpers over his last nine games as well. For the season he has seven goals and 11 points in 25 games. Thursday, 11:49 pm
  • Bishop saddled with loss to Blues in relief
    Ben Bishop was saddled with the 5-4 loss to the Blues in relief on Thursday.

    Advice: Bishop turned away nine of 10 shots, including both on the kill. Tough way to lose considering he gave up just one goal, but them's the breaks. Bishops record drops to 7-9 with a .902 save percentage and a 2.99 GAA. Thursday, 10:48 pm
  • The Holtbeats falters in Brooklyn
    Braden Holtby stopped just 25 of 28 shots the Islanders sent his way during Thursday's 3-0 loss.

    Advice: Holtby stopped all five shots asked of him on special teams, including a pair on the kill. He's allowed at least three goals over his last four games, totaling 10 goals against in that span. His record falls to 10-6-1 with a .919 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA. Thursday, 9:55 pm
  • Pastrnak can't stay off the scoreboard
    David Pastrnak remained hot Thursday night, as he can't seem to stay off the scoreboard.

    Advice: The talented winger picked up his fifth helper of the season during Thursday's 2-1 shootout win over Carolina and he scored the shootout winner. He's now posted points in seven of his last 10 games, collecting six goals and eight points in that span. He's up to 13 goals and 18 points so far this season. Thursday, 8:23 pm
  • Braden Holtby is expected to start Thursday
    Braden Holtby will be the Capitals' starter on Thursday.

    Advice: Holtby has allowed at least three goals in each of his last three starts. He has a 10-5-1 record, 2.18 GAA, and .920 save percentage in 16 games this season. Thursday, 9:10 am
  • Patrick Maroon has cooled without McDavid
    Patrick Maroon has no goals and two assists in his last eight games.

    Advice: Maroon excelled on a line with Connor McDavid, but the duo were split up and Maroon's production seems to have fallen off as a result. It's worth adding that Maroon does have 20 shots in that eight game span, so if he keeps firing the puck at that rate he should eventually see his cold streak thaw to some extent even without McDavid. Thursday, 8:06 am
  • James van Riemsdyk hits 10-goal mark
    James van Riemsdyk tallied his 10th goal of the year in a 4-2 victory over Edmonton.

    Advice: He has found the back of the net in each of his last two games. JVR co-leads the Leafs in scoring with 19 points in 22 matches. Wednesday, 8:03 am
  • Ben Bishop's rough start continues
    This has been a challenging campaign so far for Ben Bishop.

    Advice: Bishop absorbed a 4-1 loss on Sunday, dropping to a 7-8-0 record, 3.04 GAA, and .902 save percentage. "It's kind of been the story of the year," Bishop said. "Bad bounce, tips, goals off my own players. It kind of seems like it happens every single game, but nobody is going to feel sorry for you. You've just got to keep working and eventually the tides will turn." Hopefully for the sake of Bishop and the Lightning, that will prove to be an accurate prediction. He's certainly capable of far better than this, especially after being a finalist for the Vezina Trophy last season. Monday, 7:57 am
  • Pastrnak scores fourth goal in five games
    David Pastrnak scored his fourth goal in his last five games during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Lightning.

    Advice: Mark it three in a row with a goal for the phenom, who is now up to 13 goals and 17 points in 17 games this season. The 20-year-old appears to be the real-deal, so we'd grab him any which way we can. Nov 27, 2:07 pm
  • Bruins tear up Bishop for third straight loss
    The Bruins tore up Ben Bishop in Sunday's 4-1 loss, his third straight bad game.

    Advice: Bishop stopped 26 of 30 shots, and allowed a power play goal on two shots. During his current slide the veteran netminder has allowed a dozen goals. Yikes. He's now 7-8 on the season with a 3.04 GAA and a .902 save percentage. Nov 27, 1:55 pm
  • Bishop to start Sunday v Bruins
    Ben Bishop will get the start Sunday afternoon against the Bruins.

    Advice: He will be looking to rebound from an unfortunate 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets on Friday. Bishop has lost four out of his last six games and has been outplayed by backup Andrei Vasilievskiy this season. That said, the Bolts have no plans to remove Bishop from the starter's position. Nov 27, 7:09 am
  • Patrick Kane scores Chicago's only goal
    Patrick Kane was the only Chicago Blackhawks player who scored in the Los Angeles Kings' 2-1 overtime win on Saturday.

    Advice: This marks Kane's eighth goal of the season, maintaining his point-per-game (23 in 23) pace for 2016-17. Even if some were hoping for a repeat of last season, it's clear that Kane is still a great threat on a nightly basis. Nov 26, 11:43 pm
  • Braden Holtby gives up four in loss to Leafs
    Braden Holtby gave up four goals on 37 shots Saturday night as the Washington Capitals lost a 4-2 contest to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Advice: Both Holtby and opposing goalie Frederik Andersen blocked 33 pucks Saturday night, but two more shots on goal made the difference in the contest. Holtby gave up at least one goal in each period as the Leafs took had a 3-0 edge early in the third. His help on the other end of the ice was too little and too late. Nov 26, 8:47 pm
  • Caps tab Braden Holtby vs Toronto on Saturday
    The Capitals have tabbed Braden Holtby to face Toronto on Saturday.

    Advice: Tonight should be another fun test for the Holtbeast, as he faces one of the most exciting offenses in the league. His save percentage has dipped down to .923. Which is a touch below the uber elites in the league, but shouldn't raise any concern. Nov 26, 10:41 am
  • Ben Bishop takes responsibility for loss
    Ben Bishop blamed himself for Friday's 5-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: The Lightning found themselves down 2-0 going into the second period and 3-2 heading into the third. They managed to tie the game, but eventually fell in regulation. "We did a good job of coming back," Bishop said. "We battled our way back to a tie it in the third. I got to come up with a big save there. I think I let the guys down." Bishop is still the team's starting goalie, but with Andrei Vasilevskiy playing so well, the Lightning could opt to split starts a little more evenly. Nov 26, 8:34 am
  • Marcus Johansson scores GWG Friday
    Marcus Johansson scored the game-winning goal in a 3-1 triumph over Buffalo on Friday.

    Advice: His eighth marker of the year snapped a six-game goalless slump. Johansson has slowed down considerably following his hot start to the year. He has accounted for two goals and one assist in the past 11 games. Nov 26, 7:05 am
  • Ben Bishop allows 5 goals in loss to Jackets
    Ben Bishop allowed five goals on 38 shots in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Bishop has lost four of his last six games and he's given up at least three goals in four of those contests. He has a 7-7-0 record with a 2.98 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this season. Bishop's still the team's starting goalie, but they might start thinking about giving Andrei Vasilevskiy more starts. Nov 25, 8:12 pm
  • David Pastrnak scores 12th goal in loss
    David Pastrnak scored in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.

    Advice: He's now scored in both his games since returning to the lineup after dealing with an undisclosed injury. Pastrnak's goal tied the game at one in the third period. The 20-year-old has 12 goals and four assists in 16 games this season. He's on pace to score an incredible 58 goals this season. He won't hit that number, but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's having a fantastic season. He's a must-own and must-start in all fantasy formats. Nov 25, 7:52 pm
  • Pat Kane nets a pair of points in victory
    Patrick Kane netted another pair of points during Friday's 3-2 victory over the Ducks.

    Advice: He collected his seventh goal of the season, and his first in five games. Add on his assist, and he has 22 points in 22 games this season. Pretty snazzy. Nov 25, 4:51 pm
