Player Notes

  • Surrenders four goals
    Fleury allowed four goals on 40 shots in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.

    Advice: Fleury kept it close, but he had no answer for the Oilers' top line or power play. This was Fleury's fourth loss in his last five outings, a span in which he's given up 20 goals while going 1-3-1. On the year, Fleury is at 4-5-2 with a 3.29 GAA and an .886 save percentage. Filip Gustavsson has turned things around lately while Fleury continues to struggle, so the 39-year-old veteran is likely to remain in a backup role. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Gives up three goals in win
    Skinner stopped 17 of 20 shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Wild.

    Advice: Skinner's had better performances of late, but a strong showing from the Oilers' top line and power play gave him enough support to earn his sixth straight win. He's allowed a total of 11 goals in that span. The 25-year-old netminder improved to 10-7-1 with a 3.03 GAA and an .887 save percentage through 19 contests overall. Skinner's winning streak has solidified his role as the No. 1 netminder in Edmonton, so he can be expected to start again Sunday versus the high-scoring Devils. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Allows four goals in loss
    Hofer gave up four goals on 21 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Advice: The Blue Jackets' second line did most of the damage against the 23-year-old goalie, accounting for three of the four goals on his line. Hofer has lost his last three outings, giving up 11 goals in that span while facing no more than 21 shots in any of the games. He's at a 5-5-0 record with a 3.19 GAA and an .893 save percentage. A better showing in goal would allow Hofer to challenge the ever-inconsistent Jordan Binnington for a larger share of the starts. Binnington will likely play Saturday in Chicago.

  • Excellent in season debut
    Greaves stopped 41 of 43 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Advice: Greaves turned in a stellar performance in his first NHL contest of the season. He also received ample support from his offense to secure the win. The 22-year-old is in the NHL while Elvis Merzlikins (illness) and Daniil Tarasov (knee) work their way back. With no back-to-backs over the next week, Greaves is unlikely to see any more playing time during this stint with the big club. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Loses despite solid effort
    Jarry saved 30 of 32 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Panthers on Friday. Florida's third goal was scored on an empty net.

    Advice: Jarry was dealt his third straight loss, though he did his part tonight. The contest was tied 1-1 going into the final frame, but Florida outshot Pittsburgh 12-5 in the final frame, so the outcome isn't shocking. Jarry has an 8-10-2 record, 2.48 GAA and .918 save percentage in 20 contests this season. Among the nine goaltenders who have suffered at least eight regulation losses this campaign, Jarry has by far the best GAA -- John Gibson is second at 2.82 -- which highlights the lack of offensive support the Penguins netminder has been given.
