  • Jaromir Jagr scores goal in loss to VAN
    Jaromir Jagr scored the only goal for the Florida Panthers in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Jared McCann fed Jagr on the doorstep for an easy tap in on the power play. The goal was Jagr's 9th of the season and 29th point in 48 games. The 44-year-old impressively continues to find ways to score. He is only an effective fantasy option in deeper formats. Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Henrik Sedin picks up 1000th NHL point
    Henrik Sedin scored a goal in a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

    Advice: Henrik Sedin took a nice feed from brother Daniel before beating Luongo with a nice move for his 1000th career NHL point in his 1213th game. It was a special moment for the 36-year-old Swede and it must have been extra special to celebrate it with a win. Luca Sbisa scored the game-winning goal for the Canucks just over three minutes into the third period. Henrik Sedin now has 30 points in 47 games this season. Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Luongo gives up two goals in loss to VAN
    Roberto Luongo stopped 30 of 32 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

    Advice: Luongo gave up a goal to Henrik Sedin for his 1000th career point in the NHL, he then went and congratulated his former teammates on the great accomplishment. Luongo has now lost three straight games in goal for the Panthers, giving up 10 goals during that span. His record drops to 13-13-5 with a 2.44 goals against average and a .921 save percentage. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Ryan Miller stops 34 shots in win
    Ryan Miller stopped 34 of 35 shots in a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

    Advice: Quietly, Miller has a 10-1-3 record and a .930 save percentage over his last 14 games. His goals against average and save percentage have improved from 2.71 and .911 to 2.48 and .920 respectively over that span. Owned in in 62% of yahoo leagues, it's time to pick up the 36-year-old netminder. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Ryan Johansen has two assists in win
    Ryan Johansen picked up assists on both Nashville goals in a 3-2 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

    Advice: His two assists came with a nice sucker punch thrown to Benoit Pouliot while the latter was tangled up with a referee. Johansen now has seven goals and 32 points in 46 games this season. His assists came on goals scored by Ryan Ellis and Viktor Arvidsson. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Milan Lucic scores PPG in OT loss
    Milan Lucic tied the game on the power play with less than five minutes remaining in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: It was a great sequence leading up to the goal for Lucic. He first obliterated Austin Watson behind the net, then drew a retaliation penalty before putting the puck in the back of the end on the ensuing power play. It was Lucic's first goal since December 21 against the Coyotes. This season has been increasingly hard to deal with his inconsistent scoring habits because his penalty minute totals are down. However, he did pick up seven penalty minutes in the loss. He now has 28 points and 25 penalty minutes in 48 games this season. Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Talbot sensational, loses in SO to Preds
    Cam Talbot made 42 saves on 44 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators on Friday.

    Advice: Talbot's winning streak ends at four games. He was simply sensational in goal, stealing a point for the Oilers in this one. With the Oilers really lacking a quality backup netminder, we wouldn't be at all surprised to see Talbot start again tomorrow night in Calgary. However, if the Oilers are to make a serious playoff push, they'll need to pick up a goaltender who can give Talbot some time off. His record fell to 24-12-7 with a 2.41 goals against average and a .919 save percentage. Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Pekka Rinne beats Oilers again on Friday
    Pekka Rinne stopped 30 of 32 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.

    Advice: Rinne made some beautiful saves in overtime to give his team the chance to win it in the shootout. He is remarkably 7-0-0 in his career against the Oilers. He was not playing to his usual standards earlier in the season, and there was a lot of talk about getting Juuse Saros more starts but he has responded by turning in some lights out performances. Rinne has now given up two goals or less in six of his last seven starts in goal. His record improves to 17-12-2 with a 2.35 goals against average and .921 save percentage. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Taylor Hall picks up one assist in loss
    Taylor Hall picked up an assist in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: It first appeared that Hall tipped in Santini's point shot, but Santini has been credited with the goal. Hall leads all Devils with 30 points this season, albeit in just 37 games this season. He is having a good season with the Devils but he hasn't exactly jump started their offense like they had hoped. Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Mrazek allows 3 goals in overtime loss
    Petr Mrazek allowed three goals on 37 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

    Advice: Mrazek made a nice save going left to right to stop Marcus Foligno. Mrazek had a great game but just got edged out in overtime when the Sabres went on the power play. He has really struggled this year with a 3.13 goals against average and .895 save percentage. It's a disappointing season after his great play last year. Yesterday, 7:20 pm

    Eric Gryba and Anton Lander will be scratched from Friday's match with the Predators.

    Advice: Gryba has posted 58 PIMs along with 25 blocks and 91 hits in 25 games this season, which is mighty beastly in the right pool. Lander meanwhile has picked up four points and 24 hits in 26 games with the big boys. Yesterday, 4:07 pm

  • Jaden Schwartz compiles 3 points vs. Caps
    Jaden Schwartz picked up a goal and two assists in a 7-3 loss to Washington on Thursday.

    Advice: He combined with Alexander Steen for six points in the contest. That was the only bright spot for the Blues in an embarrassing loss at home. Schwartz assisted on two goals by Steen in the third after the Capitals took a 7-1 lead. His 13th goal of the season made it 2-1 early in the second period, but then the Capitals stormed out in front. Yesterday, 7:10 am
  • Louis Domingue allows 4 goals in loss to MIN
    Louis Domingue allowed four goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: Two of the four goals he gave up were scored on the power play (the other two were scored at even-strength). He has just one win in his last eight decisions. Domingue has a 5-12-1 record with a 3.19 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage in 2016-17. Thursday, 9:21 pm
