    Injured Reserve
  • Coach wants E. Kane to cut out bad penalties
    Coach Dan Bylsma wants Evander Kane to cut out the bad penalties he has been taking.

    Advice: "The type of penalties are more the discussion point than the penalties," Bylsma said. "Evander is an aggressive guy, a physical guy, and we want him to be and need him to be. If he's taking penalties being aggressive and being physical, then that's one we'll kill." Kane has heated up lately with three goals and five points in five games, which is the kind of play that Bylsma and the Sabres are looking for from him. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:44 am

  • Phillip Danault scores goal, assist in win
    Phillip Danault scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: Not bad for a guy who was a game time decision because of an illness. The Canadiens put together an impressive performance considering it was their first game back from a long road trip. They were also without Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais tonight. In their absence, Danault stepped up. He opened the scoring by tipping in a Nathan Beaulieu shot in the first period and he also assisted on Artturi Lehkonen's second period goal. Danault has six goals and five assists in 27 games this season. He doesn't have any value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm

  • Teuvo Teravainen gets 2 in loss to Ducks
    Teuvo Teravainen scored the first and last goal of the night for the Carolina Hurricanes, but it was not enough to stem a 6-5 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

    Advice: Teravainen’s first goal of the contest came at the 19:22 minute mark of the first and it tied the game at the time. His second goal was scored at 9:21 and lifted the Canes to a two-point advantage, but he was answered by Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry.
