    Nick Leddy scored his eighth goal of the season in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers on Sunday.

    Advice: Leddy's unassisted marker in the first period was his eighth goal and 24th point in 44 games this season. With two assists on Saturday in LA, it was a three-point weekend for the veteran blueliner. Today, 7:26 pm
  • Calvert scores in return to lineup on Sunday
    Matt Calvert scored in his return to the lineup during Sunday's 7-6 overtime win over the Senators.

    Advice: He was a scratch for Saturday's contest against Carolina. It was just the sixth goal of the season and eighth point through 39 games for the winger. Today, 5:37 pm
  • Zack Smith tallies three points in loss
    It wasn't Zack Smith's fault the Senators fell to the Blue Jackets 7-6 on Sunday in overtime.

    Advice: Smith scored twice and added an assist for good measure, bringing his season's sum to 11 goals and 22 points in 43 games this season. Today, 5:22 pm
  • Mike Hoffman continues to score
    Mike Hoffman just can't help but put more pucks in the net.

    Advice: Hoffman tallied a pair of goals, giving him 17 on the year with 34 points in 41 games. Over his last seven games he has seven goals and nine points. However the Senators would go on to fall to the Blue Jackets 7-6 in overtime on Sunday. Today, 5:11 pm
  • Ducks return Corey Tropp to AHL San Diego
    Corey Tropp was returned to AHL San Diego on Sunday.

    Advice: The 27-year-old has eight goals and 29 points with the Gulls this season. Unfortunately however he hasn't played in the NHL since 2014-15 when he played 61 games for the Blue Jackets. Today, 3:01 pm
  • Del Zotto scratched vs Islanders on Sunday
    Michael Del Zotto has been made a late scratch against the Islanders on Sunday.

    Advice: Through 30 games the offensive defender has posted 10 points along with 59 blocks and 110 htis. Today, 2:59 pm
  • Weise, Schultz out vs Isles on Sun
    Dale Weise and Nick Schultz will each be scratched against the Islanders on Sunday.

    Advice: Weise leads the group in terms of fantasy value. Through 41 games he has five points with 15 PIMS and 82 hits. Schultz meanwhile has posted four points with 22 hits and 29 blocks in 13 games. Today, 11:59 am
  • Kevin Hayes suffers lower body injury vs DET
    Kevin Hayes suffered a lower body injury during the second period of Sunday's matinee with the Red Wings.

    Advice: Hayes did not factor much on to the score sheet before departing. Consider him day-to-day for now. The Rangers will host LA on Monday and Philadelphia on Wednesday before the All-Star break kicks in on Friday. Today, 11:25 am
  • Erik Condra clears waivers on Sunday
    Erik Condra cleared waivers on Sunday.

    Advice: Which means he's eligible to be sent back to AHL Syracuse, his most likely next destination. Nothing is official just yet, so don't be too surprise if he sticks with the club a little longer. Condra is pointless through 10 games with the Lightning this season. Today, 11:23 am
  • Jake Allen to join his teammates on Monday
    Jake Allen will join the rest of his teammates on Monday.

    Advice: He did not travel to Winnipeg as he needed some time to reset after a series of horrible starts. Hopefully the time away from the ice did Allen some good. It is not clear if Allen will get the start against the Penguins on Tuesday, however. Today, 10:13 am
  • Colin Wilson (LBI) skating Sunday
    Colin Wilson (lower body) skated Sunday morning, but he didn't take part in line rushes.

    Advice: Well that is a good sign as Wilson attempts to come back from his latest injury---a lower body one. That said, there is no timetable for his return so consider Wilson day-to-day for now. Today, 10:01 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Benn sustains broken nose but returns
    Jamie Benn sustained a broken nose in Saturday night's game against Washington.

    Advice: The good news is that after he sustained the break he returned to action with a visor on. It looks like Benn will be able to continue playing with the injury, although it may slightly impact his effectiveness. Today, 9:35 am
  • Petrovic may play before All-Star break
    It is possible that Alex Petrovic will play a game before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Panther's GM and interim coach Tom Rowe told reporters that Petrovic could play in the team's final game before the All-Star break Thursday night against the Lightning. He has been out of action since November 15th with a broken ankle. Today, 7:39 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Lehner save in OT has everyone in disbelief
    Robin Lehner's save in overtime off an Alex Galchenyuk shot made it possible for the Sabres to defeat the Canadiens Saturday night.

    Advice: If you haven't seen this glove stop, you're missing something. Lehner dove, avoided Evander Kane who was in the crease, and prevented Galchenyuk from scoring into what was seemingly an open net. Here is a link to the stop. Today, 6:55 am
  • Mikkel Boedker back on second unit
    Mikkel Boedker is playing on the second line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi.

    Advice: Boedker got off to a horrific start to the season but has played better with four of his six goals coming earlier in the month. He has not picked up a point in his last five games but that seems to be the norm for Boedker this season. He will lose his spot as a top-six forward once Tomas Hertl and/or Timo Meier return from injury. Today, 6:28 am
  • White-hot John Tavares scores again Saturday
    John Tavares scored a power play goal Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: Tavares has been white-hot of late with eight goals in his last five games. He chipped in with an assist as well Saturday and it was his first helper in the five games. Tavares is up to 19 goals and 36 points this season and is a must-start in pools. Today, 5:55 am
  • OT triumph gives Martin Jones his 24th win
    Martin Jones continues to deliver at more or less the same level as his outstanding first season with the Sharks during his second campaign as their No. 1 guy.

    Advice: Jones nabbed a win on Saturday as San Jose edged the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 in overtime. He's now 24-14-2 with a solid .917 save percentage and nice 2.24 GAA. It's plausible that he'll match or best 37 wins, the career-high he set last season. The Sharks took a leap of faith with Jones (he only had 34 games of experience at the NHL level before joining San Jose) and that's been looking like a wise decision. Yesterday, 11:44 pm
  • Oilers quickly chase Chad Johnson on Saturday
    It was a short appearance for Chad Johnson on Saturday, as he was a big reason why the Calgary Flames fell 7-3 to the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: Johnson stopped one of four shots on goal in just under six minutes of ice time before the Flames saw enough. Brian Elliott had a rough game, too, giving up three goals on 26 shots. Johnson wasn't tagged with the loss, but you can say that he's either lost or had a rough night in three of his last four appearances. Elliott's likely in more control of the Flames' starting job at the moment. Yesterday, 11:36 pm
  • Jordan Eberle torches Flames with four points
    Jordan Eberle continues to put a slump behind him, most emphatically doing so on Saturday with a four-point output in the Edmonton Oilers' 7-3 win against the Calgary Flames.

    Advice: He generated two goals and two assists in this one, managing a +2 rating and six SOG in just 15:39 TOI. Eberle now has six points in his last four games to give him 32 on the season. Yesterday, 11:23 pm
  • Wild get 2 G from Jason Zucker, Erik Haula
    The Minnesota Wild can thank Jason Zucker and Erik Haula most of all for their comeback, 5-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

    Advice: Early in the second period, the Ducks had gone up 3-1. Zucker and Haula keyed much of the rally from there, as Zucker now has 14 goals on the season while Haula has nine. Ryan Suter scored the game-winner, his seventh of 2016-17. Suter also had two assists on the night. Yesterday, 11:05 pm
