    • Drew Doughty LA D
      Kings' Drew Doughty: Tacks on goal
      4h ago

      Doughty lit the lamp and logged 28:36 TOI in Monday's win over the Blues.

      Doughty went seven straight games without a goal heading into this contest, but he broke that on the power play off a one-timer from Anze Kopitar. The veteran blueliner now has five goals and 28 points in 50 games, and he continues to manage 26:42 along with substantial power-play minutes.

      Kings' Brendan Leipsic: Second two-point outing
      4h ago

      Leipsic scored a goal and added a helper in Monday's win over the Blues.

      Leipsic picked up a turnover late in the first period and set up Tyler Toffoli to cut the Blues' lead to one. He later assisted Paul LaDue's game-winning goal. Leipsic was pointless in three straight entering this contest, but he broke out of the rut with his second two-point game of the season.

      Kings' Anze Kopitar: Notches two points
      4h ago

      Kopitar scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's win over the Blues.

      Kopitar set up Drew Doughty's power-play goal in the second period, and he netted one of his own on a two-on-one late in the same frame. Kopitar is having a stellar beginning to 2019 with five goals and eight points in nine games. He now has a long break with the Kings' next game Feb. 2 versus the Islanders.

    • Paul LaDue LA D
      Kings' Paul LaDue: Unlikely hero Monday
      4h ago

      LaDue scored the game-winning goal Monday versus the Blues.

      LaDue was a healthy scratch for 10 straight games and 18 of the last 22, but he was the hero in this outing. LaDue hauled in a pass from Brendan Leipsic and rocketed a slap shot past Jordan Binnington to mark his first goal since Oct. 7. However, the recency bias of this performance may wear off before the Kings' next game versus Feb. 2, so he's not guaranteed to stay out of the press box then.

    • Tyler Toffoli LA RW
      Kings' Tyler Toffoli: Rings up two points
      4h ago

      Toffoli scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's win over the Blues.

      Brendan Leipsic picked up a turnover in the offensive zone and dished it to Toffoli who had the whole net open, and Toffoli didn't miss. He added a secondary assist on Paul LaDue's game-winning goal. Toffoli now has four points in the last four games.

    • Ivan Barbashev STL C
      Blues' Ivan Barbashev: First two-point outing of year
      4h ago

      Barbashev dished out two assists in Monday's loss to the Kings.

      Barbashev recorded a secondary assist on Mackenzie MacEachern's first NHL goal, and set up Oskar Sundqvist in the slot to give the Blues a two-goal lead late in the first period. That joy was short-lived, however, as Barbashev turned the puck over in the defensive zone less than 15 seconds later and the Kings cut the Blues lead in half. Barbashev matched his career-high 13 points through 46 games -- it took him 53 last season.

      Blues' Ryan O'Reilly: On pace for career highs
      5h ago

      O'Reilly scored a power-play goal and fired five shots on net in Monday's loss to the Kings.

      After the Kings scored goals within the final two minutes of both the first and second periods, the Blues clearly needed a spark and O'Reilly was that guy. He reeled in Vladimir Tarasenko's pass and found a small pocket over Jonathan Quick's shoulder to tie the game 3-3. O'Reilly now has 18 goals and 49 points through 48 games, putting him on pace for career highs in both categories.

    • Luke Glendening DET C
      Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Expected to play Tuesday
      6h ago

      Glendening (undisclosed) missed Monday's practice but is expected to suit up in Edmonton on Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

      Glendening has yet to miss a contest this season, scoring six goals and 15 points in 50 games so far. He's on pace to surpass his career high of 21 points while averaging nearly 16 minutes of ice time per game. While he's expected to play, Martin Frk would be his most likely replacement if he has to sit out Tuesday.

      Wild's Eric Staal: Approaching career milestone
      7h ago

      Staal generated a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights.

      The venerable pivot needs only five more points to reach 1,000 in an illustrious career that's been split between the Hurricanes, Rangers and Wild. Staal remains a high-volume shooter with a top-line role, so don't forget about the 34-year-old when constructing daily lineups; he's reasonably priced on all the main DFS sites.

      Wild's Charlie Coyle: Making most of top-line time
      7h ago

      Coyle produced a game-winning goal Monday, with the Wild sneaking past the Golden Knights, 4-2.

      Coyle's garnered a point in back-to-back games, and he's clearly benefiting from his latest top-line assignment with Jordan Greenway and Eric Staal. It seems like no one ever talks about Coyle, yet he has as many points (24) as teammate Jason Zucker and one more than Capitals forward T.J Oshie, for example.

      Blues' Oskar Sundqvist: Knocks home ninth goal
      5h ago

      Sundqvist lit the lamp and won seven of 10 faceoffs in Monday's loss to the Kings.

      Sundqvist got behind a defender and streaked to the net, where he directed Ivan Barbashev's pass into the net with just one hand. Plays like that are just part of the reason the 24-year-old has been the most surprising player on the Blues' roster this season. Last campaign, he was a healthy scratch 39 times, but this year he now has nine goals and six assists in 40 games. He has a spot on the third line now and has seen his ice time -- including his power-play time -- increase dramatically.

      Blues' Mackenzie MacEachern: Register first NHL goal
      5h ago

      MacEachern scored a goal, fired three shots on goal and dished out three hits in Monday's loss to the Kings.

      MacEachern has mainly been a wrecking ball with 10 hits over his first four NHL games and he didn't even generate a shot on goal until his fourth contest. The 24-year-old finally broke the ice by picking up a loose puck and knocking it into a wide-open net. Despite the effort MacEachern's days in the NHL are likely numbered depending on when the Blues get healthy.

      Meier scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-2 loss to Florida.

      Meier has been a wonderful surprise for the Sharks and fantasy owners this season. After scoring 36 points last year during his first full NHL campaign, he's already tallied 19 goals and 44 points before the All-Star break.

      Dadonov dished a pair of even-strength helpers in Monday's 6-2 victory over the Sharks.

      It was the first multi-point game for Dadonov since Dec. 18 and he scored just five points in the 15 games following that contest. The Russian winger is on pace for his second consecutive 60-point season since returning from the KHL.

      Wild's Louis Belpedio: Levels down
      6h ago

      Belpedio was sent to AHL Iowa on Monday.

      This move came moments after fellow defenseman Brad Hunt was acquired from the Golden Knights, and since only a draft pick came back in return, the Wild were forced to make room on their roster by demoting Belpedio. Still just 22 years old, Belpedio could certainly be called up at a later point this season.

      Hunt and a sixth-round draft pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft were traded to the Wild on Monday in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft from the Knights.

      Hunt was rarely deployed by the Knights over his past two seasons with the team and he'll likely be facing a similar role with the Wild in the remainder of the season ahead. In order to make room for Hunt on the roster, Louis Belpedio was sent to AHL Iowa.

      Miller assisted on both of Vegas' goals in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

      Miller has recorded a pair of assists in back-to-back games since returning from an undisclosed injury versus the Penguins on Saturday. And for good measure, his first apple in the latest contest was of the power-play variety. The defenseman has made tremendous strides in the attacking zone compared to his first two years in Boston, improving from 0.28 points per game with the B's to a half-point-per-game pace with the Golden Knights.

      Prosser was scratched from a second consecutive game as the Wild defeated the Golden Knights on Monday, 4-2.

      The Wild are barely using Prosser even with Matt Dumba (pectoral) on injured reserve. Between the 15 games that he's drawn into, Prosser has only averaged 10:13 of ice time as a third-pairing defenseman, with the scant role basically rendering him worthless in the fantasy realm.

      Quick steered away 33 of 36 shots in Monday's win over the Blues.

      Quick was yanked from Saturday's loss to the Avalanche but bounced back in a big way Monday. It continues to be difficult for Quick to mark the win column behind the league's lowest-scoring offense. With this victory, Quick registered his 302nd career win, passing Hall of Fame backstop Mike Richter for fourth among United States-born goaltenders.

      Binnington allowed four goals on 29 shots in Monday's loss to the Kings.

      Binnington was 4-0-1 and hadn't allowed more than two goals in a game entering this matchup, so this was his first real dud of the season. It came against the league's worst-ranked offense. Fellow goalie Jake Allen has been inconsistent all season and for a majority of last year, so the team will still give Binnington plenty of chances to solidify his starting role moving forward. His next chance could be Wednesday versus the Ducks.

      Luongo made 27 of 29 saves in Monday's 6-2 victory against the Sharks.

      After dropping five straight decisions, Luongo put together a small two-game winning streak heading into the All-Star break. The 39-year-old still owns a sub-.900 save percentage, the worst mark of his career. Luongo will look to get back to a .500 record after the break.

      Dell allowed a goal on nine shots during a relief appearance in Monday's 6-2 loss to Florida.

      After Martin Jones coughed up his fifth goal during an ugly third period, Dell stepped in to replace him. He had done a solid job before allowing a power-play score in the final minute of regulation. Dell will most likely draw the start for Tuesday's game in Washington, the Sharks' final game before the All-Star break.

      Jones has now allowed 11 goals while facing just 47 shots in his last two outings immediately following an eight-game winning streak. His GAA has jumped to 2.89 along with an ugly .897 save percentage. Jones likely won't be back in the net until after the All-Star break, giving him plenty of rest.

      Wild's Devan Dubnyk: Sneaks past Vegas
      8h ago

      Dubnyk kicked aside 30 of 32 shots en route to a 4-2 road win over the Golden Knights on Monday.

      Vegas opened the scoring courtesy of former Wild forward Alex Tuch's power-play marker, and Max Pacioretty knotted the score at 2-2 with a five-hole deposit with 7:24 remaining in the second period, but Minnesota would take over in the third to bail out Dubnyk. Considering the Wild put up 10 fewer shots, had 27 hits to Vegas' 41, failed to convert any power-play goals, and were the inferior team on faceoffs, it's a bit surprising that Dubnyk was able to skate off with the win. He's now 19-16-3 with a 2.58 GAA and .913 save percentage.
