  • Golden Knights' James Neal: Good to go Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Neal (illness) will play against the Predators on Tuesday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Neal was dealing with what coach Gerard Gallant described as a "sinus thing," but appears ready to suit up versus his former club. The winger has cooled off recently, as he has tallied just two points in his previous nine outings. The veteran has a modest 22 shots over this nine-game stretch.

  • Neal is under the weather, but will travel with the team on its four-game road trip, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Coach Gerard Gallant told reporters Neal has a "sinus thing" and wouldn't go so far to rule him out against the Predators. While it won't be his first trip back to the Music City since joining the Golden Knights, you have to imagine the winger will still be motivated to get out there versus his old club. The veteran's scoring has dried up lately, as he has just one goal and one assist in his previous nine outings.

  • Golden Knights' James Neal: Suffering slump
    By RotoWire Staff

    Neal has posted one assist and a minus-3 rating in his last seven games. Neal lit it up through his first 33 games, compiling 17 goals and 27 points while firing 97 shots on goal. He bottomed out Friday night with a brutal minus-4 rating, though, which amplifies how bad it has been for Neal. The veteran winger will have a chance to turn things around Sunday against the Rangers, who have been a tough team to score on all season, including having the sixth-ranked penalty kill.

  • Neal scored his 16th goal of the season and added a helper in Sunday's win over the Panthers. Neal is red-hot right now, recording four goals and seven points in his last six contests. The 30-year-old recently went through a five-game scoring drought, but he's gotten right back on track in a big way. The second-line winger has put up 16 goals and 26 points in 32 games this season, making him a dependable fantasy winger. Neal is one of the best goal scorers in the game and should be rolled out with confidence right now.

  • Neal ended a five-game pointless drought Tuesday, notching a goal and an assist in a win over the Ducks. Even the best goal scorers go through slumps, so it was good to see Neal get back on track Tuesday. The 30-year-old has racked up 13 goals and 21 points through 27 contests, firing 72 shots on goal in the process. The former Penguin is one of the best goal scorers in the game and can be played with confidence whenever Vegas takes to the ice.
