Player Notes

  • Blake Coleman gets his first NHL point
    Blake Coleman recorded his first career point on Tuesday.

    Advice: Coleman assisted on Beau Bennett's game-winning goal versus Minnesota. Coleman was playing in his fourth career game. The 25-year-old also has 13 goals and 23 points in 34 AHL contests this season. Today, 2:07 am
  • Adam Henrique snaps five-game point slump
    Adam Henrique found the back of the net in New Jersey's 4-3 win over Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Advice: Henrique snapped his five-game point drought. It was his 11th goal and 21st point in 46 contests. At this rate he'll probably finish the season at the low 40s in terms of points, which isn't unusual for him, but would be down from his 50-point showing last season. Today, 2:05 am
  • Boone Jenner is on a four-game point streak
    Boone Jenner's point streak reached four games Tuesday night.

    Advice: Jenner had a goal and an assist in the Blue Jackets' 4-1 win against Carolina. That gives him nine goals and 16 points in 43 contests this season. Today, 1:46 am
  • Ryan White will likely miss Wednesday's game
    Ryan White (lower body) probably won't return on Wednesday.

    Advice: It would be Arizona's 11th consecutive game without White. He has five points and 60 penalty minutes in 30 contests in 2016-17. Today, 1:36 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Ryan Kesler might get 60 points this season
    Ryan Kesler recorded an assist in a 2-1 overtime win against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kesler has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four contests. He has 18 goals and 38 points in 47 contests. At this rate, this could be the first time Kesler's reached the 60-point mark since 2010-11. Today, 1:32 am
  • Ryan Getzlaf has points in last six games
    Ryan Getzlaf has recorded a point in his last six games.

    Advice: Getzlaf extended that run on Tuesday with a goal, but it doesn't count as a point streak because it was interrupted by an injury. That was his sixth goal and 34th point in 40 contests in 2016-17. Today, 1:31 am
  • Valtteri Filppula scores in OT loss to Ducks
    Valtteri Filppula scored the first goal of the night, but it was not enough as the Lightning lost 2-1 to the Ducks Tuesday.

    Advice: Filppula’s seventh goal of the season came with an assist by Nikita Nesterov and Anton Stralman at the 4:36 mark of the second period. It did not take long for Ryan Getzlaf to answer it, however, and he responded 21 seconds later. Those would be the only regulation goals as both goalies had solid nights. This was Filppula’s first goal since December 10, but he entered the night with a current, four-game streak with an assist. Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Rickard Rakell scores in OT win over Bolts
    It took only 54 seconds of overtime for Rickard Rakell to find the back of the net and give the Ducks a 2-1 victory over the Lightning Tuesday night.

    Advice: Rakell’s goal came on a power-play early in overtime and gave the Ducks their seventh win in the last nine games. They have scored at least one point in 12 of their last 13. Rakell has not been a particularly big part of that success, however, with only four goals and one assist in that span of games. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Henrik Sedin gets 998th point in win vs Preds
    Henrik Sedin scored the only goal for either team as the Canucks beat the Predators 1-0 Tuesday night.

    Advice: That was Sedin’s 231st goal and 998th point in his career and it came with only one shot on goal. This broke an eight-game goalless slump and it extended his point streak to three straight games. More importantly it snapped a four-game skid by the Canucks. The last three losses all came in overtime. Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Matt Duchene scores 2G in loss to Hawks
    Matt Duchene scored two goals Tuesday night as the Avalanche lost a 6-4 contest to the Blackhawks.

    Advice: Duchene got the scoring off at the 7:39 mark of the first. He gave the team a little hope in the second to bring them to within one goal at the 14:08 mark of the second. Duchene had not scored a goal in his last six efforts and had only one assist, so he was rapidly losing fantasy relevance. Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Vince Hinostroza scores 2G in win over Avs
    Vince Hinostroza scored the tying and game winning goals as the Blackhawks handed the Avalanche a 6-4 loss Tuesday night.

    Advice: Hinostroza snapped a seven-game goal-less streak and earned this pair with only a little more than 11 minutes on ice. In that span of seven games without a goal, he had only one assist. These were Hinostroza’s fifth and sixth goals, which accounts for 33 percent of his season total. Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Mikael Backlund scores three points in 2nd
    Mikael Backlund scored twice and had an assist in a 5-2 win over the Panthers Tuesday night.

    Advice: Backlund’s assist came on goal that tied the game 2-2 in the second. He remained hot throughout that entire period and scored twice in just over a minute at the 11:23 and 11:36 marks. This snapped a six-game streak in which he failed to score a goal although he had two assists in a 3-2 over the Sharks last Wednesday. Backlund now has 14 goals and 18 assists for the season. Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Brandon Dubinsky scores twice in win over CAR
    Brandon Dubinsky scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: He snapped a 17-game goal drought in the process. Dubinsky netted a pair of huge goals, as he made it 2-1 and 3-1 for the Blue Jackets. He finished the game with a plus-3 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 16:37 of ice time. The 30-year-old now has five goals and 13 assists in 41 games this season. Yesterday, 6:53 pm
  • Jayson Megna (flu) will miss Tuesday's game
    Jayson Megna will miss Tuesday's game against Nashville because of the flu.

    Advice: Reid Boucher will take his place in the Canucks lineup. Megna is considered day-to-day at this point. Yesterday, 6:28 pm
  • Tyler Ennis won't play on Tuesday night
    Tyler Ennis won't suit up in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs.

    Advice: Ennis made his return to the lineup on Monday after missing 30 games with a groin injury, and he managed to score 19 seconds into yesterday's game. The Sabres have said that he's being scratched for "precautionary reasons". Yesterday, 4:22 pm
  • Kopitar (illness) ready to return Wednesday
    Anze Kopitar (illness) feels ready to return Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed Monday's match against Tampa Bay because of a stomach bug, but he was back on the ice Tuesday morning. Kopitar had a four-game point streak before he was forced out of the lineup. Yesterday, 11:36 am
  • Ryan Carpenter back with the Sharks
    Ryan Carpenter has rejoined the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: According to the AHL Transaction page, Carpenter has been recalled to the NHL after he was sent down on Monday. He has one goal in three contests with the Sharks. Yesterday, 11:08 am
  • Sam Reinhart back with Eichel, earns assist
    Sam Reinhart earned an assist and had three shots on goal during Monday's 4-1 win over Dallas.

    Advice: Reinhart was reunited with Jack Eichel, who had two goals and 10 shots in the victory. "We've wanted to be moved back together," Reinhart said Monday. "We were excited yesterday in practice. We were excited this morning coming to the rink." The duo has seen some time together is recent games, but Reinhart was still mostly skating at center until Monday's match. Yesterday, 7:02 am
  • Sidney Crosby reaches the 50-point milestone
    Sidney Crosby ended his season-high five-game goal scoring drought on Monday.

    Advice: The fact that Crosby still hasn't gone more than five contests without a goal in 2016-17 is impressive, but he did far more than just end that slump Monday night. Crosby also registered three assists, giving him his first four-point game of the season. That also resulted in him reaching the 50-point mark in just 37 contests. Yesterday, 1:54 am
  • Stephen Gionta makes his Isles debut Monday
    Stephen Gionta made his Islanders debut Monday afternoon.

    Advice: Gionta was inserted into the Islanders' lineup because Andrew Ladd and Cal Clutterbuck were both dealing with minor injuries. Gionta had a shot on goal, a hit, and two blocked shots in 12:47 minutes of ice time. Yesterday, 1:41 am
