  • David Schlemko scores OTGWG for Sharks
    David Schlemko provided the OTGWG as the San Jose Sharks managed a 3-2 overtime win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

    Advice: It was Schlemko's first OT game-winner in the NHL and the fourth GWG of his career. This marks his second tally and 10th point of 2016-17, breaking a seven-game pointless slump. That game featured all rare-scorers (the top scorer hit his fifth goal of the season), so Schlemko seems like an inspired choice to make the difference. Yesterday, 11:50 pm
  • Cam Fowler had a strong night in Ducks defeat
    The Anaheim Ducks really can't blame Cam Fowler for their 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild from Saturday.

Fowler's 10 goals match a career-high form his rookie season in 2010-11, while he also has 15 helpers in 2016-17. With 25 points and plenty of time remaining in this campaign, he could very well match or exceed 40 points, a career-high also registered from his first season. Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Drew Doughty gets 1G. 1A in loss to Isles

  • Zach Bogosian 1st of the season is a GWG

  • Sabres recall Casey Nelson from minors
    The Buffalo Sabres recalled Casey Nelson from the AHL on Saturday.

    Advice: "P.K. is looking good," GM David Poile said on Tuesday. "He's doing more and more each day. ... I'm not sure there's a chance he'll play on this road trip ... but I'm sort of looking at (Jan. 24 against Buffalo), our (first) home game back (from the five-game road trip). That could be a good date if everything continues the way it is right now." He has been making positive strides this week with a pair of full practices, including Wednesday's session. Subban has been absent for the last 15 games. Wednesday, 2:57 pm
  • John Carlson (LBI) doubtful for Thursday
    John Carlson (lower body) is doubtful for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

    Advice: "He did some therapy stuff today and that," coach Barry Trotz said. "He got worked on yesterday and all the good stuff.

Carlson didn't play on Monday due to a lower-body injury, but he is close to being ready to play again. Still, Washington is considering bringing up a defenseman. Wednesday, 10:52 am
  • Kevin Shattenkirk nets 1G, 1A in loss to OTT
    Kevin Shattenkirk scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: Shattenkirk cut Ottawa's lead to 3-2 late in the second period and he also helped set up Alexander Steen's power play goal early in the third period to make it 3-3. The Blues defenseman has four points in his last three contests. He has nine goals and 30 points in 45 games. It'll be interesting to see what the Blues will do with the pending unrestricted free agent. If they're unable to re-sign him, they could trade him before the deadline. Tuesday, 8:08 pm

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. Monday, 6:38 am

"It’s getting better but it’s still not there yet but it does feel better each day," Greene said. "But it does feel better each day. Hopefully it continues to make progress and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later. The swelling is starting to go down now, that’s good. It’s trying to get it close, not 100 percent but functional so I can play." Greene has nine points with 33 hits and 78 blocked shots this season so he has some fantasy value in certain pools. Jan 15, 6:25 am
    Injured Reserve

The former third overall pick in 2008 has posted 47 goals and 161 points along with 446 PIMs, 725 blocks and 971 hits. Not too shabby for the young veteran. Jan 13, 3:25 pm
  • Steven Santini gets his first NHL goal
    Steven Santini scored his first NHL goal in New Jersey's 3-2 overtime loss to Edmonton on Thursday.

    Advice: It was an odd goal for a moment like that though as the puck deflected off Santini's elbow after being fired by teammate Taylor Hall. "It’s not exactly how you envision your first goal, I guess," said Santini. "It was a good play by Hallsie and P.A. (Parenteau) so I was just at the right place at the right time."
