    Corey Crawford let four pucks get past him on only 23 shots Tuesday night, but it was enough to give the Blackhawks a 6-4 win over the Avalanche.

    Advice: Crawford’s save percentage Tuesday night of .826 was not overly impressive, but at least the Blackhawks goalie got the win. On Sunday, he recorded a save percentage of .906 in a loss to the Wild. Crawford has four wins in his last six games with a save percentage well under the .900 mark. Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Corey Crawford takes on Avalanche on Tuesday

  • Penguins recall Jake Guentzel
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled Jake Guentzel from the minors.

    Advice: Guentzel had quite an NHL debut on November 21 as he scored twice in the first period. The winger had three goals and four points in five games in the NHL while managing 21 goals and 42 points in 33 AHL games this season.

  • Alexander Burmistrov to play on Monday
    Look for Alexander Burmistrov to make his Arizona debut Monday.

    Advice: Burmistrov had a long break as he was picked up on waivers from Winnipeg but couldn't get a work visa for a week-and-a-half. "I want to give him the best chance to be successful," coach Dave Tippett said. "Morning skates aren’t much for him, and he hasn’t skated in 10 days. So we’ll give him a couple more days skating, and hopefully the Edmonton game will be his first game." Burmistrov struggled in Winnipeg where he had only two assists in 23 games. He was drafted eighth overall in 2010 and was worth the waiver claim to see what he can do away from the Jets. Sunday, 4:19 am
  • 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. As long as he stays healthy for the rest of the season, he should still be able to reach the 50-point mark. Sunday, 2:17 am
  • Cam Talbot stays on winning trail for EDM
    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. Saturday, 10:11 pm
  • Corey Crawford takes on Minnesota on Sunday
    Corey Crawford takes on Minnesota on Sunday.

  • Alex Burmistrov not yet ready to return Sat
    Alexander Burmistrov is not yet ready to return to action, according to coach Dave Tippett.

  • Nick Schmaltz summoned up by Chicago from AHL
    Chicago has summoned Nick Schmaltz up from AHL Rockford 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. 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. Saturday, 2:48 pm

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

    Advice: After missing so much time with back spasms, it's no wonder why the Rangers are loath to play their sterling rookie on consecutive nights. Through 11 games this season he's posted five goals and nine points. Saturday, 9:22 am
  • 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. Friday, 9:09 pm
  • Corey Crawford pulled in blowout loss to WSH
    Corey Crawford was pulled in Friday's 6-0 loss to the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: Crawford got the hook in the third period, after he allowed a fifth goal on Washington's 30th shot. The loss snaps his personal three-game winning streak. Crawford has a 16-9-3 record with a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage in 2016-17. Scott Darling entered the game in relief of Crawford, and he allowed one goal on four shots. Friday, 8:13 pm
  • Burmistrov, Connauton out vs Jets on Friday
    Alexander Burmistrov and Kevin Connauton will be scratched against the Jets on Friday.

    Advice: It would have been sweet for Burmistrov to avenge himself against his former club, but it was not to be. He's still working his way through the system and has yet to impress coach Dave Tippett in practice just yet. Friday, 5:14 pm
  • Corey Crawford vs Braden Holtby on Friday
    It'll be Corey Crawford against Braden Holtby on Friday night in Washington.

    Advice: Crawford comes in having gone 4-2-1 in his seven starts since rejoining the team. He's posted a .919 save percentage and allowed 18 pucks through over that time as well. Those aren't uber elite numbers, but they certainly get the job done well. Friday, 3:01 pm
  • Alexander Burmistrov will be scratched Friday
    Alexander Burmistrov has resolved his work visa situation, but he won't play on Friday.

    Advice: That will give Burmistrov a bit of time to settle in with the Coyotes after being claimed off waivers and then going through the visa process. Burmistrov might make his Coyotes debut on Saturday. Friday, 12:41 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. 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. 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. Friday, 9:05 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Burmistrov uncertain for game against Jets
    Alexander Burmistrov's work visa situation could be settled soon, but it's unclear if he will be available for Friday's game against his former team.

    Advice: The Winnipeg Jets visit Arizona on Friday night. Burmistrov spent parts of five seasons with the Atlanta/Winnipeg organization before he was claimed off waivers by the Coyotes on Jan. 2. Friday, 7:45 am
  • 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. Friday, 7:38 am
    Injured Reserve
  • 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. 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.

    Advice: It was the second time Talbot defeated the Devils in less than a week. While his numbers weren't eye popping, but he did pick up his 21st victory of the season in 39 starts. He brings his 2.49 GAA and .917 save percentage into his next start. Thursday, 10:35 pm
  • Pavel Buchnevich to return Friday vs Toronto
    Pavel Buchnevich is expected to finally return to the lineup on Friday against Toronto.

    Advice: The 21-year-old rookie has four goals and eight points in 10 games, while averaging 15:06 of ice time per night. Making him well-worth keeping an eye on now that he's back. Thursday, 3:17 pm
  • 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. 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. Thursday, 11:49 am
  • Patrik Laine (concussion) will miss road trip
    Patrik Laine (concussion) won't join the Jets on their upcoming road trip.

    Advice: The Jets will play in Arizona on Friday, Los Angeles on Saturday, and San Jose on Monday. Laine's missed two contests so far. As is typical with a concussion, it's not known when he might be able to return. Thursday, 11:18 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Travis Hamonic (LBI) is on the IR list
    Travis Hamonic (lower body) has been put on the injured reserve list.

    Advice: The move is retroactive to January 7. Hamonic has two goals and 12 points in 35 games this season. This move allowed the Islanders to summon blueliner Scott Mayfield. Thursday, 8:22 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Jared McCann plays on top line, earns assist
    Jared McCann earned an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win against the Islanders.

    Advice: He combined with Vincent Trocheck to set up a goal by Keith Yandle. McCann has produced just four points in 21 games. He is getting a good opportunity right now on the top line with Trocheck and Jaromir Jagr. Thursday, 5:01 am
  • 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. Wednesday, 9:39 pm
  • Travis Hamonic (LBI) is day-to-day
    Travis Hamonic won't play Wednesday because of a lower-body injury.

    Advice: "He's day-to-day right now," coach Jack Capuano said. "I don't expect he'll be on the ice for the next few days as we move along. He's out for now and we'll see how he progresses as time goes on." Adam Pelech will be in the lineup versus Florida in Hamonic's place. Wednesday, 12:31 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Chad Johnson will play Wednesday vs. SJ
    Chad Johnson will be in goal again for the Flames Wednesday night.

    Advice: He will make his third straight start when Calgary hosts San Jose after a pair of solid performances in a win over Vancouver and a loss to Winnipeg.

  • Patrick Sharp shoots well in loss to Ducks
    Patrick Sharp made six shots on goal against the Anaheim Ducks, but John Gibson denied them all as the Dallas Stars lost the 2-0 contest.

    Advice: Sharp was coming off a much more productive night with one goal and two assists Monday against the Kings on four shots. The injury-plagued winger seemed to be getting into a rhythm with those three points, which is going to be critical as the team evaluates the risk of another concussion with how much ice time they want to allot him. Sharp has already missed one 14-game streak to a concussion and another 12-game period that ended on New Year’s Eve against the Florida Panthers. Tuesday, 10:17 pm
  • 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. Tuesday, 8:58 pm
  • Corey Crawford stops 33 shots in OT win
    Corey Crawford stopped 33 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: It wasn't always pretty for the Hawks, as they blew 2-0 and 3-2 leads, but they eventually got the job done. Crawford has now rattled off three straight victories. He has a 16-8-3 record with a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage this season. He continues to be a solid fantasy option. Tuesday, 8:33 pm
  • Cam Talbot will face Sharks on Tuesday night
    Cam Talbot will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Talbot has won each of his last two starts. He'll enter tonight's game with a 20-11-6 record, a 2.44 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage. Tuesday, 3:22 pm
  • Patrik Laine selected for NHL All-Star Game
    Patrik Laine has been selected for the NHL All-Star Game.

    Advice: The 18-year-old winger already has 21 goals and 37 points in 42 games. He leads all rookies in scoring and has made an impact as a top-line winger. Laine is currently sidelined with a concussion, but hopefully he will be able to participate in the All-Star contest. Tuesday, 2:40 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Corey Crawford to start against Detroit
    Corey Crawford will start Tuesday's game against Detroit.

    Advice: He has emerged victorious in three of his last four games, including the last two. Crawford has a 2.33 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage in 26 games this season. His efforts earned him a spot on the 2017 NHL All-Star Game with the Central Division team. Tuesday, 1:25 pm
  • Patrick Sharp generates 3 points vs. Kings
    Patrick Sharp produced three points in a 6-4 win against Los Angeles on Monday night.

  • Travis Hamonic doesn't practice Monday
    Travis Hamonic sustained an undisclosed injury during Saturday's game.

    Advice: Hamonic didn't participate in Monday's practice as a result. He has two goals and 12 points in 35 contests in 2016-17. Tuesday, 1:51 am
    Injured Reserve
  • G Chad Johnson makes 25 saves in Flames' loss
    Calgary goalie Chad Johnson got no offensive support in the Flames' 2-0 loss to the Jets in Winnipeg Monday night.

    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. Johnson isn't the wisest choice for a goalie in fantasy play but his numbers really are pretty decent. Monday, 8:39 pm
  • Chad Johnson to start Monday vs. Jets
    Chad Johnson will get the nod for Calgary Monday against Winnipeg.

    Advice: This will be his second straight start after he helped the Flames post a 3-1 win over Vancouver on Saturday. The victory was Johnson's first since Dec. 10. He has a 14-8-1 record with a 2.28 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage despite the struggles he went through at the end of December. Jan 9, 10:16 am
  • Corey Crawford, Blackhawks top Nashville

    Advice: Crawford has won two straight and three of his past four, allowed three goals or less in all of them. His record improves to 15-8-3 this season with a .925 save percentage and 2.33 goals against average. Jan 8, 8:00 pm
  • 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. Jan 8, 10:39 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Laine not on ice for Jets' practice Sunday
    Patrik Laine is not on the ice for the Jets' practice Sunday morning.

    Advice: This is not surprising given the thunderous hit he took in Saturday's game against Buffalo. The Jets are going to provide an update later Sunday. Stay tuned for Laine updates. Jan 8, 9:51 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Crawford to start v Preds Sunday
    Corey Crawford will get the start Sunday evening against the Predators.

    Advice: He was first off the ice in Sunday morning's practice. Crawford is coming off a 4-3 OT win against Buffalo in which he stopped 17 of 20 shots. He will have to be sharper against Nashville if he wants to add to his 14 wins. Jan 8, 8:35 am
  • Pavel Buchnevich scores in the minors
    Pavel Buchnevich scored on Friday for Hartford of the AHL.

    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. Jan 8, 6:56 am
  • Alexander Burmistrov still waiting for visa
    Alexander Burmistrov is still waiting for a work visa.

    Advice: The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers from Winnipeg and needs a work visa to play in the United States. The Coyotes are on a five day break so he should be ready to practice Thursday when the team reconvenes for Friday's contest. Burmistrov has just two assists in 23 games this season so his fantasy value is zero. Jan 8, 4:57 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.
