    Cody Eakin, who was a healthy scratch in Dallas' last game, is expected to return to the lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: The Stars will play a matinee game against the Flyers, and it sounds like Eakin's stint in the press box is over. " [Eakin] hasn't played very well, his numbers were down, and I didn't like his previous game," Ruff said. "We are in a tough spot right now and we need everybody on board. It's not easy and not something that any player wants to have happen, but it's not the getting scratched that really matters to me, it's the response afterward." Eakin scored 35 points in 82 games last year, but he has just one assist in 10 games in 2016-17. Today, 8:58 am

  • Martin Marincin could return on Saturday
    Martin Maricincin is likely to return to the Maple Leafs' lineup on Saturday night.

    Advice: He missed Wednesday's game because of the flu, but it looks like he should be able to suit up tonight. If he does play, Connor Carrick could be the odd man out on Toronto's blue line. Today, 8:04 am

  • Martin Jones outdueld by Bernier in loss
    Martin Jones stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

    Advice: Down 2-0, Jones made some nice stops to keep his team in the game, including a couple of huge bad saves on Jakob Silfverberg. The Sharks were eventually able to tie the game thanks to goals from Brent Burns and Kevin Labanc but a third period Hampus Lindholm goal spoiled the party for Jones and the Sharks. Jones has turned into an elite NHL goaltender and one of the best options in goal for your fantasy teams. The loss drops his record to 13-10-1 on the season. Yesterday, 9:53 pm

    The Montreal Canadiens recalled Mark Barberio from AHL St. John's on Friday.

Thursday, 7:29 pm

Allen has a 12-3-3 record with a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season. His individual numbers aren't great, but he's managed to pile up an impressive record.

  • Jones faces only 16 shots in loss to Sens
    Martin Jones faced only 16 shots Wednesday night and let three get past him as the San Jose Sharks lost a 4-2 contest to the Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: The Sharks defense did their part to limit the shooting, but it was not enough as the goalie recorded only a .813 save percentage. Jones faced only six goals in the first period and five each in the second and third, but the backbreaker came very late in the third when he was beaten by Chris Kelly with just over a minute remaining. This snapped a three-game winning streak for Jones in which he logged a save percentage of .947 or greater. Wednesday, 10:27 pm

  • Canadiens send down Mark Barberio
    Mark Barberio has been assigned to St. John's of the AHL.

    Mark Barberio collected his first point, an assist, of the year during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.

    Cam Talbot faltered late in the game to serve up Buffalo's 4-3 overtime win.

He stopped 22 of 26 in the game, including six of eight while on the kill. The loss drops Talbot's record to 13-9-3 with a 2.64 GAA and .914 save percentage. Tuesday, 7:06 pm

    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. Monday, 7:43 pm
  • 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." Monday, 7:00 am

    Advice: Talbot's hit the 21-win mark twice in his young career, so as many likely expected, he's in a strong position to set a much higher mark - health permitting - in 2016-17. Edmonton's starting goalie made 31 out of 33 saves in this one. Saturday, 10:00 pm
  • Nemeth, Oleksiak out vs Avalanche on Saturday
    Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleksiak will be scratched against the Avalanche on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Nemeth is still searching for his first points of the season through 14 games this season. While Oleksiak has four points to his credit through 11 games. Meaning, neither have much fantasy value. Saturday, 3:23 pm
  • Leafs summon Antoine Bibeau in emergency
    The Maple Leafs have summoned Antoine Bibeau on an emergency basis.

    Advice: With Frederik Andersen still slated to start, it appears that there's a problem with Jhonas Enroth. Be that as it may, the 22-year-old netminder has posted a 6-5-3 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.53 GAA with AHL Toronto. Saturday, 1:17 pm

  • Martin Marincin might play on Saturday
    Martin Marincin might be back in Toronto's lineup on Saturday night in Vancouver.

  • Martin Jones great in win over Habs on Friday
    Martin Jones allowed one goal on 32 shots in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

    Advice: The greatest save of the game occurred midway through the first period when he absolutely robbed Alex Galchenyuk of a goal with his glove. Jones then lost his shutout bid with less than two minutes remaining in the game when Artturi Lehkonen put the puck passed him on a powerplay. Jones has now won five of his last six starts, giving up one goal or less in each of those wins. The win improves his record to 13-8-1, with a 1.99 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.

With 13 goals and 27 points in 24 games thus far this season, it seems safe to say he's worth the price of admission. Thursday, 11:04 pm
  • Jake Allen survives Lightning storm
    Jake Allen survived the Lightning storm, beating Tampa Bay 5-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: Allen turned away 22 of 26 shots in the effort. It wasn't his strongest effort, but a win is a win is a win. And his record now stands at 12-3-3 with a .907 save percentage and a 2.47 GAA. Thursday, 10:59 pm

    Martin Jones stopped 25 shots and allowed one goal in Wednesday night’s 4-1 victory over the LA Kings.

    Advice: The Sharks and Kings entered the contest with one win separating them. The Sharks’ 13-9-1 record was narrowly better than the Kings’ 12-9-1 but the game got out of hand in the first with three goals scored by the Sharks.

  • Talbot has worst game of year vs the Leafs
    Cam Talbot lasted only 40 minutes and gave up four goals on 14 shots Tuesday night as the Edmonton Oilers lost a 4-2 contest to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

With a save percentage of .714, this was the worst outing of the season for Talbot. His previous worst was a .739 against the Buffalo Sabres on October 16th; he lasted 50 minutes in that contest. Tuesday, 9:36 pm
