Player Notes

  • Kinkaid gives up three goals in loss to MTL
    Keith Kinkaid stopped 23 of 26 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

    Advice: Kinkaid had a good game in goal, making big saves on both Philip Danault and Jacob De La Rose. However, like it's been for the past few seasons, the Devils just couldn't score enough goals to come away with the win. Kinkaid has a 5-5-2 record and he doesn't have any fantasy value. Today, 7:49 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. Today, 7:20 pm
  • Anders Nilsson allows two goals in win
    Anders Nilsson allowed two goals on 34 shots in a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.

    Advice: Nilsson has an impressive 6-1-1 home record and a .939 even-strength save percentage. He has started five of the last six games for the Sabres, winning two of those games. The Sabres are going back and forth with both Lehner and Nilsson so it's a bit of a murky goaltending situation in Buffalo. Nilsson has a 8-6-4 record with a 2.52 goals against average and a .925 save percentage. Today, 7:13 pm
  • Matt Murray makes 27 saves in easy win
    Matt Murray stopped 27 of 28 shots in Friday's 7-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: The Penguins had a 1-0 lead heading into the first intermission, but they exploded four more in the second frame. The only goal Murray allowed was a shorthanded marker to Viktor Stalberg in the third period. Murray has a 16-4-1 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage this season. Today, 7:12 pm
  • Scott Darling blanks Bruins on Friday night
    Scott Darling stopped all 30 shots he faced in Friday's 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: The Blackhawks were finally able to break a scoreless tie when Marian Hossa made it 1-0 with under two minutes remaining in regulation. Darling has won each of his last two decisions and he owns a 12-4-2 record in 2016-17. He'll enter his next appearance with a 2.21 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage. Today, 6:55 pm
  • Don't expect to see Reto Berra in net
    Don't expect to see Reto Berra tend net for the Panthers so long as Luongo is healthy and good.

    Advice: Florida plays just twice more after tonight, on Monday the 23rd against Arizona and finally on Thursday the 26th against Tampa Bay before the All-Star break hits. Of course things are subject to change, but that's more than enough time for Luongo to get his rest and lead the team. Today, 5:14 pm
  • Spencer Martin gets 1st NHL start on Saturday
    Spencer Martin will get his first career NHL start on Saturday against the Sharks.

    Advice: The 21-year-old has been good for AHL San Antonio this season, his second twirl through pro hockey. Martin has posted a 15-9 record through 27 games with a .915 save percentage and 2.62 GAA. Today, 5:11 pm
  • Linus Ullmark heads back to the AHL
    Linus Ullmark has been sent to the minors.

    Advice: Anders Nilsson is ready to return from his illness. Ullmark has a 3.02 GAA and .908 save percentage in 29 AHL contests in 2016-17. He hasn't played with the Sabres this season. Today, 3:02 pm
  • Michal Neuvirth is likely to start Saturday
    Michal Neuvirth will probably start on Saturday.

    Advice: Neuvirth saw his personal three-game winning streak end on Jan. 14 when he allowed five goals on 38 shots against the Boston Bruins. That was his most recent start. He has a 3.30 GAA and .877 save percentage in 13 games this season. Today, 2:30 pm
  • Chad Johnson will start on Saturday
    Chad Johnson will play between the pipes in Saturday's contest.

    Advice: That will be Johnson's third consecutive start. He has a 16-11-1 record, 2.31 GAA, and .920 save percentage in 28 contests in 2016-17. Today, 1:42 pm
  • Oilers will go with Cam Talbot on Friday
    Cam Talbot will start in Friday's game.

    Advice: Talbot will be playing in his sixth straight contest. He's riding a four-game winning streak. Today, 1:07 pm
  • Isles to start Jean-Francois Berube Saturday
    Jean-Francois Berube will play between the pipes on Saturday.

    Advice: The Islanders went to just two goaltenders at the start of January with Jaroslav Halak being sent to the minors. Despite that, Berube hasn't been getting work. He has a 3.14 GAA and .904 save percentage in two starts and five appearances. Today, 12:30 pm
  • Jake Allen will stay home so he can reset
    Jake Allen will not travel with the Blues to Winnipeg even though he's healthy.

    Advice: The Blues want to give Allen a chance to reset after he had to be pulled in his last three starts. St. Louis still regards Allen as its long-term starting goaltender though. Pheonix Copley was called up, so he'll join the Blues for Saturday's game. That being said, the Blues haven't made a decision as to who their starter will be. Today, 11:15 am
  • St. Louis calls up goalie Pheonix Copley
    Pheonix Copley has been summoned by the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: It's possible that this is in response to a currently unidentified injury, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Blues just wanted another netminder in response to Jake Allen and Carter Hutton's struggles. While St. Louis has struggled between the pipes, Copley has posted a 2.32 GAA and .920 save percentage in 18 AHL games. Today, 8:57 am
    Not Active
  • Laurent Brossoit should get a start soon
    The Edmonton Oilers have some back-to-back sets coming up, which might result in Laurent Brossoit playing.

    Advice: Brossoit was summoned on Jan. 11 to serve as the Oilers' new backup goaltender, but he hasn't made his 2016-17 NHL debut because the team leans heavily on Cam Talbot. Edmonton is set to play on Friday and Saturday though and then it has another back-to-back set on Jan. 25-26, so it shouldn't be long before Brossoit gets some work. Today, 8:04 am
  • Calvin Pickard stops 34 shots in loss
    Calvin Pickard turned aside 34-of-36 shots but it wasn't enough as Colorado fell 2-1 to Anaheim on Thursday.

    Advice: The Avalanche were heavily out shot and out chanced and Pickard was both good and lucky to keep it so close all game. The 24-year-old has turned in two good performances, allowing just three goals on 72 shots combined. With Varlamov back on the shelf, he will likely get a lot more starts. He's not a recommended start with the struggling squad in front of him, though. Today, 12:30 am
  • John Gibson stays hot with win over Avs
    John Gibson picked up win 19 in a 2-1 Ducks win over Colorado on Thursday.

    Advice: Gibson had to endure a strangely long delay late in the second period but it had little effect on his play in the end. The 22-year-old has seven wins in his last 10 starts and has allowed just five goals total in the last five. He didn't have the best start to the season but is playing as well as his fantasy owners and the Ducks could have hoped for of late. He's 19-10-8 with a 2.26 GAA and .922 save percentage with three shutouts in 37 appearances. Today, 12:04 am
  • Juuse Saros makes 32 saves in win
    Juuse Saros turned aside 32-of-35 shots in 4-3 Nashville win in Calgary on Thursday.

    Advice: It was another impressive performance from Saros who held off a late rally from the Flames in the win. The 21-year-old Finn has been excellent in a backup role behind Pekka Rinne. He's 5-3-1 in nine starts with a 1.44 GAA and .952 save percentage in nine starts. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • 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. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Frederik Andersen allows 4 in loss to NYR
    Frederik Andersen allowed four goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers.
