  • Mike Smith yanked in loss to Winnipeg
    Mike Smith was pulled in Wednesday's loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: The Coyotes actually held a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but that's when things fell apart, as they allowed the Jets to score five unanswered goals in the second and third periods. Smith was given the hook after allowing six goals on 35 shots. He has an 8-13-5 record with a 2.99 goals-against-average and a . 914 save percentage this season. Louis Domingue entered the game in relief of Smith, and he stopped all four shots he faced. Rotoworld.com 45 minutes ago
  • Ondrej Pavelec makes 30 saves in win over ARZ
    Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 30 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: After being recalled from the AHL on Tuesday, Pavelec made his 2016-17 debut tonight. He gave up two goals in the 8:50 of the game, but he settled in nicely after that. With Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson struggling so badly, there's a chance Pavelec can grab the Jets' starting job for the rest of the season. With Pavelec, there's always an issue with consistency, so don't be surprised if he falls into a slump sooner than later. He's only worth an add in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Hutchinson Scratched Wednesday
    To make room for newly recalled Ondrej Pavelec, Michael Hutchinson will sit out as the third goaltender.

    Advice: Brandon Tanev and Julian Melchiori will be scratched along with the netminder who made 27 saves in a 5-2 loss the last time he was between the pipes. Pavelec is a desperate measure to change the look of the Jets crease before a playoff spot gets too far ahead of them. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:29 pm

    Pavel Buchnevich scored a goal and registered two assists in the Rangers' 7-6 loss to Dallas on Tuesday.

    Advice: Buchnevich has picked up at least one point in his last seven appearances, which is made all the more impressive by the fact that his NHL career is still just 13 contests old. He's averaging a point-per-game so far with five goals and eight assists. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:13 am
  • Chad Johnson gets win in easy game
    Chad Johnson faced only 22 shots Tuesday night as the Flames beat the Panthers 5-2.

    Advice: Johnson owes a big thank you to the offense for keeping the action on the other end of the ice, but he did his part as well and logged his fifth straight game with a save percentage above the .900 mark. His previous four efforts came in a .926 or greater. Johnson has momentum on his side. This was also his fifth straight game with a GAA of 2.09 or less. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 pm

    Ondrej Pavelec has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: He has posted an 8-7-2 record with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage with the AHL's Manitoba Moose this season. Winnipeg has one win in the last six games and the goaltending hasn't been steady this year, so Pavelec could get some playing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 am
  • PPG ends Cam Talbot’s shutout hope
    A power-play goal at the 17:56 mark of the second period was the only one allowed by Cam Talbot in a 3-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Advice: Talbot was perfect for nearly 38 minutes until Radim Vrbata slipped one past him with an assist from Alex Burmistrov and he went right back to being perfect.

  • Alexander Steen has been hot lately
    Alexander Steen has seven points in his last six contests.

    Advice: Steen now has five goals and 25 points in 37 games this season. He endured a rough patch from Dec. 11-22 where he was limited to an assist in seven contests, but beyond that he's been a reliable bet for much of the campaign.

    Cam Talbot grabbed his 22nd win of the 2016-17 season as the Edmonton Oilers edged the Calgary Flames 2-1 via a shootout on Saturday.

    Advice: Talbot stopped 24 out of 25 shots in the game. Suddenly, the Oilers are protecting their starting goalie quite well, as he's faced less than 30 shots on goal in each of the last four games. He's generated wins in four of his last five games to boot. The 29-year-old's outlook sure looks optimistic. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:11 pm

    It'll be Michael Hutchinson's turn in net as the Jets face the Kings on Saturday.

    Advice: The 20-year-old phenom has posted six goals and nine points in 12 games this season down on the farm. Unfortunately, he hasn't quite been able to make his mark at the highest level. Posting just four points in 26 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:03 pm
  • Buchnevich to play Saturday after all
    Looks like Pavel Buchnevich will play Saturday in Montreal after all.

    Advice: A bit surprising given his back woes this season but with nine points in 11 games thus far and the Rangers scuffling, perhaps it shouldn't be surprising at all. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:48 pm
  • Confirmed, Cam Talbot will face Calgary

  • Pavel Buchnevich scratched vs Montreal on Sat
    Pavel Buchnevich will be scratched against Montreal on Saturday.

  • Mike Smith gives up 3 goals in win
    Mike Smith stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.

    Advice: The win breaks Smith's eight-game losing streak. At 34 years old, he's still a quality NHL goaltender, just stuck on a very young Arizona Coyotes team. His 8-11-5 record and 2.83 goals against average are reasons we'd definitely avoid him if possible in the fantasy community. The silver lining in his season is his impressive .919 save percentage considering the circumstances that surround him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:28 pm
  • Chad Johnson allows only 2 goals in loss
    Chad Johnson allowed two goals on 36 shots in a 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: It's been a whirlwind season for Johnson so far. He appeared to wrestle the starting job away from Brian Elliot, then lost it, and he now appears to have won it back after starting four straight games for the Flames. It appears that coach Glen Gulutzan is set on riding the hot hand in goal and Johnson has been overall the far superior and consistent goaltender for the Flames this year. The loss drops his record to 15-10-1 with a 2.25 goals against average and a .924 save percentage. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:09 pm
  • Chris Kreider scores in loss to Maple Leafs
    Chris Kreider found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Advice: Kreider's goal in the second period cut Toronto's lead to 2-1 at the time, but that's as close as the Rangers would come to tying the score. The Rangers forward has now scored nine goals in his last 10 games. He's up to 17 goals and 31 points in 37 games this season. Kreider's on pace to score 35 goals, which would easily shatter his previous career high of 21. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:31 pm
  • Mike Smith tries to end eight-game slide Fri
    Mike Smith will try to end his eight-game slide against the Jets on Friday night.

    Advice: Smith has collected just one standings point during the span, allowing 26 pucks through with an .885 save percentage. Yikes. Perhaps one ought to wait until he puts a couple of wins together. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:09 pm
  • Flames will start Chad Johnson Friday
    Chad Johnson will get the start on Friday against New Jersey.

    Advice: Johnson was the first goalie off the ice this morning, which is usually a sign of who the starter will be. If he does get the nod then he'll be making his fourth consecutive start. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:05 am
  • Buchnevich will play Friday, not Saturday
    Although Pavel Buchnevich (back) will play on Friday, he will be scratched Saturday.

    Advice: Buchnevich hasn't played in an NHL game since Nov. 12 due to the injury, but he did just return from an AHL conditioning stint. The Rangers want to be cautious with him, which is why Buchnevich won't be playing on back-to-back days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:17 am
  • Jets put Patrik Laine (concussion) on IR
    Patrik Laine (concussion) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

    Advice: The move is retroactive to Jan. 7. We already knew that Laine's return wasn't imminent as he hasn't resumed skating yet, so this move is more about freeing up a roster spot than it is an update on his status. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:05 am
    Injured Reserve
     
  • Patrik Laine hasn't started skating yet
    Patrik Laine (concussion) has not resumed skating yet.

    Advice: Coach Paul Maurice said Thursday that Laine hasn't started light skating, which suggests he is still experiencing concussion symptoms. The Jets already announced that Laine won't be traveling with the team on their upcoming road trip. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:38 am

  • Alexander Steen has six points in five games
    Alexander Steen had an assist in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Los Angeles.

    Advice: It was his 20th helper of the season. Steen has accumulated six points in the past five games, but he still isn't generating many shots and goals. Perhaps his recent point surge will give him confidence to shoot more often. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:29 am
  • Cam Talbot picks up win with just 17 saves
    Cam Talbot made 17 saves on 19 shots in a 3-2 OT win over New Jersey on Thursday.

  • Cam Talbot will face New Jersey on Thursday
    Cam Talbot will face New Jersey on Thursday

    Advice: No one has spent more time in the crease or seen more rubber, and also given up more goals, than Talbot thus far this season. However it was just five nights ago that he held the Devils to just one goal on 20 shots for the win. Expect similar results tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:12 pm
  • P. Buchnevich returns from conditioning stint
    The New York Rangers have summoned Pavel Buchnevich.

    Advice: Buchnevich was sent to the minors on a conditioning stint after being sidelined for nearly two months due to back problems. The 21-year-old rookie has four goals and eight points in 10 games, so he's worth keeping an eye on now that he's back. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:49 am
  • Patrik Laine (concussion) will miss road trip
    Patrik Laine (concussion) won't join the Jets on their upcoming road trip.

  • Chad Johnson blocks 25 in win over Sharks
    Chad Johnson faced 27 shots Wednesday night and let two get past him as the Calgary Flames beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2.

    Advice: This was the second straight night that Johnson made 25 saves on 27 shots. Fortunately, the Flames had enough offense this time to secure the victory, because he last outing produced a 2-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. With back-to-back save percentages of .926 on the heels of a .966 game against the Canucks Saturday, Johnson is heating up at the right time to keep the team in the playoff hunt. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:39 pm
  • Michael Hutchinson allows 4 in relief
    Michael Hutchinson allowed four goals on 23 shots in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to Montreal.

    Advice: Hutchinson entered the game in relief of Connor Hellebuyck, who allowed four goals on seven shots in the first period. It didn't matter who was in goal for the Jets tonight, as they couldn't handle the Canadiens' speed and effort. Hutchinson took the loss in this one, and his record drops to 4-8-2 in 2016-17. He'll enter his next appearance with a 3.30 goals-against-average and a .890 save percentage. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:43 pm
  • Travis Hamonic (LBI) is day-to-day
    Travis Hamonic won't play Wednesday because of a lower-body injury.

    Advice: "Kind of surprised and shocked," Smith said. "After all that set in, just really excited and honored to represent the Coyotes and the Valley." He has a 2.83 GAA and .918 save percentage in 24 starts this season. While those don't look like All-Star numbers, the Coyotes have struggled mightily this season and Smith has been largely solid under the circumstances. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:22 am
  • Cam Talbot gives up 5 goals in loss to Sharks
    Cam Talbot gave up five goals on 28 shots Tuesday night as the Edmonton Oilers lost 5-3 to the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Talbot had an uncharacteristically bad night. With a save percentage of only .821, this was the first time in his last 12 games that he failed to break the .900 mark. All but two of those contests were north of .910. Talbot’s season long save percentage of .920 continues to recommend him going forward, but there have been some signs of slippage. During the past 12 games, he had a GAA of more than his season average 2.44 on four previous occasions. Tuesday night, he had a whopping 5.24 GAA. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:58 pm

  • G Chad Johnson makes 25 saves in Flames' loss

    Advice: Johnson made 25 saves during the loss as his record this season dropped to a still-good 14-9-1. He has a goals-against average of 2.27 and a save percentage of .922.

  • Jets diagnose Patrik Laine with a concussion
    The Winnipeg Jets have diagnosed Patrik Laine with a concussion, which came as a result of the thunderous hit laid by Jake McCabe on Saturday. There is no timetable for his return, yet.

    Advice: If you ask the Jets, it was a "clean" hit. But this isn't the news anyone wants. We've seen two examples in Boston on how this could go - like David Backes and miss just three games, or like John-Michael Liles and miss 19. Clearly there is a preference, but the truth is that each knock is unique and Laine will be encouraged to take his time. Consider him day-to-day for now, as there is no timetable for his return.

That said, Boucher did say he was hopeful Ryan would be in the lineup Sunday when the Sens host Edmonton. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 7:11 am

    Advice: Buchnevich was sent to the minors for a conditioning stint after missing almost two months with back woes. The best news is that there were no problems with his back on Friday and it looks like he should be back with the Rangers shortly. Grab him if he is available as he started the season off strong with four goals and eight points in 10 games. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:56 am
  • Chad Johnson helps Flames end Canucks' run
    Chad Johnson was in the Calgary Flames' net as they beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-1 on Saturday.

    Advice: In doing so, the Flames ended their rival's six-game winning streak. Johnson stopped 28 out of 29 shots to break his own four-game skid. He had allowed 15 goals during that slump, so this is a return to form for a goalie who had been pushing Brian Elliott for the starting job. Elliott likely retains the advantage right now, but the Flames would love to see them trade wins. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:39 pm
