  • Scottie Upshall STL RW
    Blues' Scottie Upshall: Spot in lineup in jeopardy
    25m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Scottie Upshall is a candidate to be removed from the lineup when Jaden Shwartz returns from an ankle injury, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Schwarz's return is imminent and, given the St. Louis Blues ' recent stretch of offensive futility, needed. He gives St. Louis more offensive upside than Upshall, who has six points in 43 games. Ironically, Upshall is coming off a game in which he didn't have a goal or an assist, but drew two penalties that led to St. Louis goals.

    Blues' Alex Pietrangelo: Injury update expected Monday
    37m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Alex Pietrangelo (knee) and the St. Louis Blues had Sunday off, so an update to his injury is expected Monday, the St. Lois Post-Dispatch reports.

    Pietrangelo left Saturday night's win over the Wild limping after getting jacked along the boards. He's one of five Blues to have skated in every game and is considered day-to-day heading into Tuesday night's game against Winnipeg.

    Canadiens' P.K. Subban: Streak extended
    43m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    P.K. Subban extended his points streak to six games, registering an assist in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over Carolina.

    Going back further, Subban has points in 12 of the previous 13 games. There's been a drop off in his goals, but it's hard to be disappointed with his 42 points in 54 games.

    Canadiens' Sven Andrighetto: Second shootout winner
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Sven Andrighetto recorded his second shootout-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Hurricanes.

    The Montreal Canadiens have yanked Andrighetto around a bit, but he's shown a bit of a scoring touch while skating with the club's bottom six forwards. The Habs could certainly use guys capable of generating offense, and Andrighetto is deserving of a spot on the active roster every night.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Collects three points in win
    8h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    John Tavares tallied a goal and two assists in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    The New York Islanders ' offense exploded for eight goals Sunday, and Tavares was a major part of that as he recorded what would end up going as the game-winner early in the first period before setting up a pair of power-play tallies. The 25-year-old continues to roll with six points in his last four games and is now up to 40 on the season.

    Kyle Okposo tallied a hat-trick and also provided an assist in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    It was a monster performance for Okposo, with two of the goals coming on the power play, as he was a big part of the New York Islanders ' easy 8-1 win. The 27-year-old is now up to 41 points and is on his way to eclipsing the 60-point mark for the second time in his career.

    Nielen dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    Frans Nielsen entered the contest with just one point in his last four games, but it was a huge night all around as the Isles tacked on eight goals in the blowout win. The 31-year-old also finished the game with a plus-2 rating to bring him even on the year in that department to go along with 33 points.

    Elias Lindholm finished with a minus-1 rating in Sunday's loss to the Canadiens.

    Lindholm also skated 20:03 worth of ice time in the contest, his highest total in that department in eight games, and had a chance in the shootout, but was denied by Ben Scrivens. The 21-year-old currently sits at 24 points through 55 games, while sporting a minus-9 rating.

    Coyotes' Boyd Gordon: Considered week-to-week
    17h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Boyd Gordon is now on a week-to-week timetable with an upper-body injury suffered in Thursday's game against the Blackhawks.

    Gordon missed Friday's contest because of the injury, and it appears he'll miss a lot more than that. In an odd move, the team sent Steve Downie back to AHL Springfield, but will likely need to bring up another forward ahead of the team's next game Wednesday against the Canucks, while Gordon's status should continue to receive updates as he begins closing in on a return.

    Stars' Colton Sceviour: Makes return to lineup
    19h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Colton Sceviour (head) made his return to the lineup in Saturday's 5-1 loss to Chicago.

    Sceviour served fourth-line duties, playing 10:49 and putting three shots on goal. Sceviour will likely remain at the bottom of the lineup for the near future, as he's pointless in his last nine games.

    Flames' Sam Bennett: Gets back on track with multi-point effort
    21h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Sam Bennett snapped a five-game pointless drought Saturday, scoring his 14th goal of the season and adding an assist in a win over Vancouver.

    A strong fantasy night for Bennett, who also picked up two PIM and put up a plus-3 rating. The 19-year-old has tallied 24 points in 50 games and is becoming a key player for the Calgary Flames . He's been inconsistent at times, but the youngster is playing on the power play and is only going to get better, so scoop him up while you still can.

    Cal Clutterbuck registered a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    Clutterbuck helped set up the game's opening goal, but the contest was well out of hand by the time he lit the lamp, as the tally gave the Isles a 7-1 lead. The 28-year-old isn't known to light up the scoresheet, having entered the contest with just one point in his last 10 games, but he's now scored 11 goals on the year.

    Max Pacioretty scored the team's lone goal in Sunday's shootout win over the Hurricanes.

    There wasn't much offense in this one, but Pacioretty got the Habs on the board midway through the second frame, which was enough to force overtime and the eventual shootout. The 27-year-old hit the 20-goal plateau for the fourth time in his career with the tally and is on his way to another 60-point campaign.

    Kris Versteeg riffled five shots on net in Sunday's loss to the Canadiens.

    Versteeg has now been held off the scoresheet in all three contests since the All-Star break, but he was more active around the net in this one. The 29-year-old is shooting at just an 8.7% clip, the second lowest mark in his career, so he could benefit from a bit better luck.

    Nick Leddy dished out three assists and finished with a plus-4 rating in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    It was arguably Leddy's most productive night of the season, as the Isles cruised to an 8-1 win. The defenseman hasn't been lighting the lamp himself much this season, but he's collected 20 helpers and could approach the 40-point plateau for the first time in his career with a strong finish to the season.

    Matt Niskanen registered the game-winning goal in Sunday's win over the Flyers.

    Niskanen fired a game-high seven shots and broke the tie for good just over five minutes into the third period. The defenseman doesn't light up the lamp himself too often -- the tally was just his third goal of the year -- but he's dished out 20 helpers and sports an impressive plus-16 rating.

    Michael Del Zotto tallied the game's first goal in Sunday's loss to the Capitals.

    Del Zotto isn't known for factoring into the scoresheet too often, as this was just his 13th point of the season. The defenseman does log a heavy amount of ice time though, leading the team by nearly two minutes with 23:30 skated per game.

    Stralman missed Sunday's practice due to a bout with the flu, but the issue isn't expected to cost him much more than that. The team should confirm his status following Monday's morning skate, so expect another update when that happens.

    Thomas Greiss turned aside 30 of 31 shots in Sunday's win over the Oilers.

    It was a strong performance from Greiss, but this one was never in doubt as the New York Islanders poured on eight goals, five of which came before the Oilers got their lone tally. The 30-year-old has been effective when called upon, registering a 2.26 GAA and .929 save percentage in limited action.

    Oilers' Cam Talbot: Allows four goals in relief

    Cam Talbot allowed four goals on 20 shots after entering in relief in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

    Anders Nilsson started the game but allowed three goals in just over 10 minutes, but Talbot proved to be just as ineffective Sunday, forcing coach Todd McLellan to replace goalies once again later in the contest. It was a rough weekend for the 28-year-old, as he allowed eight total goals in just over four periods of action in the back-to-back set, and he now sits at 11-16-3 on the year.

    Anders Nilsson allowed four goals on just 11 shots in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

    Nilsson started this contest, and though he was pulled early, he ended up re-entering after backup Cam Talbot proved just as ineffective. The 25-year-old hasn't recorded a win since Dec. 11 -- a night in which he surrendered five goals -- so it's difficult to trust Nilsson even when he does get the starting nod.

    Ben Scrivens stopped 34 of 35 shots in Sunday's win over the Hurricanes.

    Scrivens also turned aside all five shots in the shootout, as he put together a terrific performance after allowing a goal just 2:27 into the game. The 29-year-old has now turned in back-to-back one-goal performances, so he could continue to see some time in net over Mike Condon while he's hot.

    Cam Ward denied 33 of 34 shots in Sunday's loss to the Canadiens.

    It was a valiant effort for Ward, as he also turned aside the first four attempts in the shootout, but the offense in front of him fell flat after scoring in the opening minutes of the contest. The 31-year-old has now appeared in net twice since being activated off the injured reserve with a concussion and has stopped 33 shots in each game, so the time off doesn't seem to be effecting him.

    It was another stellar performance for Holtby, as he notched his third win in three tries since the All-Star break, while holding the opposition to just two tallies in all three. The 26-year-old sports an astounding 33-5-3 record and is as good as it gets right now between the pipes.
