    Jared Coreau stopped all 18 Canadiens shots in a 1-0 victory Monday afternoon.

  • Islanders chase Tuukka Rask on Monday
    Tuukka Rask stopped just 12 of 15 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Monday.

  • Thomas Greiss earns 32-save SO over Bruins
    Thomas Greiss stopped all 32 shots in the Islanders' 4-0 win over Boston Monday afternoon.

    Advice: That's one way to bounce back from a loss to Carolina where Greiss surrendered seven goals on a staggering 43 shots. Greiss was appearing in his 21st contest of 2016-17 and this was his first shutout of the season and the fifth of his career. He's become the Islanders' clear starter now that Jaroslav Halak is in the minors, so New York will naturally need more strong performances from Greiss like this one if they are to claw back into the playoff race. Today, 12:31 pm

    Injured Reserve
  • Rangers call up Magnus Hellberg
    Magnus Hellberg has been summoned by the New York Rangers.

    Advice: Antti Raanta has a lower-body injury, so that's why the Rangers need another goaltender. Hellberg has a 2.91 GAA and .905 save percentage in 25 AHL contests this season. Today, 9:02 am

  • Philipp Grubauer to play more short-term
    Look for Philipp Grubauer to get the start in three of the Capitals next eight games.

    Advice: As good as starter Braden Holtby has been this season, Grubauer is matching him every step of the way with an 8-1-1 mark to go with a 1.74 GAA and a .935 save percentage. Coach Barry Trotz suggested that Grubauer will play once during the upcoming Dad's trip and with the Capitals having a pair of back-to-back games upcoming, he will get a start in each of those games. He is worth putting on your roster as he has been great this season. Today, 6:35 am
  • No update on status of Jonathan Quick
    GM Dean Lombardi said that there was no update on the status of Jonathan Quick who injured his groin on opening night.

    Injured Reserve
  • Blue Jackets use four goalies in four games
    The Columbus Blue Jackets have used four different goalies to start in net in their last four games.

    Advice: It all comes down to Sergei Bobrovsky's illness as he would have played at least three times had he not been sick. But the Blue Jackets have used Curtis McElhinney (since waived and picked up by Toronto) Anton Forsberg and Joonas Korpisalo between the pipes. Bobrovsky is feeling better and will likely start Tuesday against Carolina. Bobrovsky is a must-start when he plays as he is 26-6-2 with a 2.00 GAA an a .931 save percentage. Today, 3:25 am
  • Carlyle likes the progress of John Gibson
    Coach Randy Carlyle likes the progress and work ethic of John Gibson.

    Advice: Carlyle reiterated the point that most people forget that Gibson is only 22 and already a starting goalie in the NHL. "People either don’t remember or don’t think of him as a goalie who is only 22 years old," Coach Randy Carlyle said. "He’s transitioning into a full-time NHL goalie. It takes big-league stops like the one (on Tarasenko) to compete in this league. He understands that there’s a work ethic that’s required to keep your skills sharp. There’s an understanding that it’s not always about you, that you gotta do the little things, gotta take the extra shots when it’s not your turn in the net that night. And you don’t do those things begrudgingly." Gibson is 17-10-8 with a 2.33 GAA and a .920 save percentage. He is a keeper. Today, 3:06 am
  • Carter Hutton stymies Ducks for another win
    Carter Hutton followed up a Saturday night shutout with a Sunday night victory over Anaheim, making 22 saves on 23 shots.

    Advice: Hutton and the Blues scraped out a 2-1 win over the Ducks in overtime. That's two victories in as many days for the 31-year-old. His record improves to 5-5-2 with a 2.65 goals against average and .901 save percentage. Yesterday, 9:17 pm
