    Blues' Torey Krug: Earns power-play helper
    7h ago

    Krug logged a power-play assist, two shots on goal and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Krug had gone without a point in the last three games, but he snapped the mini-slump quickly by setting up Robert Thomas' tally early in the first period. Krug has a goal and nine helpers over 10 outings in February, which is great progress after a lackluster first half of the campaign. He's up to 30 points (10 on the power play), 126 shots on net, 79 blocked shots and a minus-23 rating over 59 contests overall.

    7h ago

    Kyrou notched a pair of assists, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Kyrou's goal drought is up to five games, but he has four assists in that span. He's racked up five multi-point efforts over his last 12 outings, earning 13 points (six goals, seven assists) while seeing top-line usage over that stretch. The 25-year-old winger is up to 47 points, 182 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 59 appearances this season, well off the pace that saw him top 70 points in each of the previous two campaigns.

    Buchnevich scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Buchnevich's first-period tally stretched the Blues' lead to 2-0, but they stalled out after that. The 28-year-old has seven goals and an assist over his last seven games. That surge has him up to 24 tallies, 48 points, 154 shots on net, 40 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 57 appearances on the year. Buchnevich continues to be reliable in a top-six role.

    Thomas reached the 20-goal mark for the second time in his career, tallying early in the first period. He also assisted on a Pavel Buchnevich goal just a couple of minutes later. The 24-year-old Thomas has 68 points through 59 contests this season, putting him in a great position to surpass his career high of 77 points from 2021-22. He's added 121 shots on net, 38 PIM and a plus-13 rating through 59 outings overall, while 16 of his points have come in a hot February on the Blues' top line.

    Binnington stopped 32 of 35 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Binnington had alternated wins and losses over his previous eight outings, but Wednesday's effort broke the pattern. The Blues started well with a 2-0 lead, but Zach Hyman beat Binnington twice in regulation and Connor McDavid snapped his 10-game goal drought in overtime. The defeat sent Binnington to 20-16-3 with a 2.93 GAA and a .909 save percentage over 42 appearances. The Blues are back in action for a one-game stop at home versus the Wild on Saturday before heading east for a road trip next week.

    Ekholm handled the puck in the neutral zone and dropped it off for Connor McDavid, who did the rest for the game-winning goal at 4:34 of overtime. This was Ekholm's sixth assist over the last seven games. The 33-year-old defenseman has added steadier offense to his usual stalwart defense lately. Overall, he's produced 25 points, 114 shots on net, 106 hits, 69 blocked shots, 35 PIM and a plus-22 rating through 56 contests.

    This was his third multi-point effort in his last eight games, a span in which he has four goals and six helpers. Nugent-Hopkins continues to provide consistent offense, especially on the power play, where he's earned 20 of his 54 points on the year. The 30-year-old has added 129 shots on net, 26 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 56 outings while seeing regular top-six usage.

    McDavid scored the game-winning goal on four shots, added two assists and logged four hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues.

    McDavid's goal drought came to an end at the best possible time for the Oilers, as he was able to flip a shot past Jordan Binnington with 26 seconds left in overtime. That goal came after 25 straight assists by McDavid -- it's not often a player can go that long without a goal and still be considered productive. The superstar's surge has him up to 22 tallies, 94 points (32 on the power play), 184 shots on net, 90 hits and a plus-21 rating through 55 appearances.

    Hyman scored twice on six shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues.

    Hyman helped dig the Oilers out of an early 2-0 deficit. He scored on the power play late in the first period and added an even-strength equalizer in the second. The winger has surged to the 40-goal mark, racking up eight tallies over his last six games. He's up to 59 points, 207 shots on net, 56 hits, 40 PIM and a plus-21 rating through 56 contests overall. Hyman is the second player in the league to reach 40 goals, trailing only Auston Matthews (52).

    9h ago

    Sillinger scored a goal on four shots, blocked three shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Sillinger gave Columbus some hope when he scored on a rebound after Igor Shesterkin gave the puck away behind the Rangers' net in the third period, but the Blue Jackets were unable to solve Shesterkin the rest of the night. The goal was Sillinger's ninth, and the 20-year-old forward is up to 21 points through 53 games, putting him on pace to finish right around his rookie season total of 31 points from 2021-22.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Third straight 30-goal season
    9h ago

    Kreider had an empty-net goal and a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Kreider set up Adam Fox's power-play tally in the second period as the Rangers took a 2-0 lead, then scored his 30th goal of the season into an empty net to reestablish the two-goal lead at 3-1 in the third. The late-blooming winger has reached the 30-goal mark in each of the last three seasons after failing to previously hit that milestone in a career that started in the 2012 postseason. Of Kreider's 295 career regular-season goals, 118 have come since the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

    9h ago

    Panarin scored two goals and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Panarin opened the scoring in the second period with a mix of luck and skill, as he took advantage of a fortuitous bounce off the linesman's skate after a faceoff and fired the puck five-hole on Elvis Merzlikins. His other two points came late in the third period after Columbus pulled Merzlikins for an extra skater, as Panarin unselfishly dished the puck to Chris Kreider to make it 3-1 before scoring the game's final goal from his own blue line. Panarin's up to 35 goals on the season, having topped his previous career high by three with 22 games to go.

    Kuzmenko (illness) participated in Wednesday's practice, but he didn't have his own spot in line rushes.

    Kuzmenko instead alternated with Jakob Pelletier on the fourth line, which suggests Kuzmenko might not be quite ready to return. However, the Flames won't play again until Saturday versus Pittsburgh, so there is still time for the 28-year-old forward to get back to 100 percent before that contest. If Kuzmenko is available Saturday, then Pelletier might be a healthy scratch.

    Pelletier recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Pelletier has two assists over six contests this season. He's seen limited ice time for much of his action so far, playing on the fourth line after missing a large portion of the campaign due to a shoulder injury. The 22-year-old could move up the lineup if the Flames struggle or move other wingers out at the trade deadline.

The 24-year-old defenseman continues to take his offense to new heights while playing in a top-four role.

    Schneider notched four blocked shots and one hit to go with a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Schneider has just three assists in his last 17 games, and his last goal came Dec. 27 against Washington, so offense hasn't been the young blueliner's calling card of late. Despite the modest production, the 22-year-old Schneider continues to fill an important role on the third pairing for the first-place Rangers by blocking shots and clearing the crease.

    Miller had an assist, two shots and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Miller got the secondary helper on Artemi Panarin's empty-netter, which capped the scoring. The helper was Miller's third in his last five games, but he hasn't posted a multi-point game or scored a goal since a two-goal, three-point offensive outburst against the Capitals on Dec. 27. Miller occasionally shows flashes of brilliance offensively, but his lack of a signature performance over the last two months is due in part to lack of opportunities on the power play -- all but one of Miller's 23 points this season have come at even strength, and the other was scored shorthanded.

    Trouba had an assist, three shots, two blocked shots, one hit and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Trouba showed off his two-way ability Wednesday, even though the physical blueliner's hit total was lighter than usual. His helper came on the second of New York's empty-netters, as Trouba moved the puck to Artemi Panarin, who lifted the puck into the vacated net from the Rangers' blue line to round out the scoring. Asked to play more of a stay-at-home role in New York, Trouba has come nowhere near his 2018-19 career high of 50 points with the Jets since joining the Rangers, and he's at 21 points through 58 games in 2023-24.

He settled down quickly, and the Oilers rallied with two goals from Zach Hyman and a game-winning tally by Connor McDavid. Skinner has won three of his last five outings despite allowing 18 goals in that span. He's up to 27-13-2 with a 2.68 GAA and a .904 save percentage over 43 appearances. The Oilers have a back-to-back up next -- they visit the Kraken on Saturday before hosting the Penguins on Sunday. Skinner and Calvin Pickard are likely to split those contests.

    Merzlikins allowed two goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

    After ending New York's 10-game winning streak with a 29-save effort Sunday, Merzlikins was similarly sharp Wednesday, but he didn't get as much goal support with the Rangers turning back to starter Igor Shesterkin rather than backup Jonathan Quick. After stopping all 17 shots he faced in the first period, Merzlikins was beaten twice in the second, and the Rangers scored twice into an empty net to pull away late in the third. The loss dropped Merzlikins' record to 11-13-7, and he's likely to maintain a sub-.500 record while backstopping a rebuilding Blue Jackets team.

    Shesterkin ruined his own shutout bid in the third period, as his giveaway from behind the net to Damon Severson led to Cole Sillinger's goal on the rebound, but he was flawless otherwise en route to a seventh consecutive win. After an uncharacteristically poor first half of the season, Shesterkin has found his form with seven wins in seven starts since the All-Star break for a Rangers team that regained the top spot in the NHL standings with Wednesday's win. The fantasy buy-low window on Shesterkin has long since slammed shut.
