Ilya Bryzgalov feels trimmer and ready to put some of the troubles he experienced last season behind him.

He lost about eight pounds during the summer and says his comfort level has improved. "To be honest, I don't analyze everything that happened last year," said Bryzgalov, who has been working out at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "I feel totally comfortable right now here. I understand the Philly media. I understand the Philly fans right now. I know what to expect from everybody in the locker room." Flyers GM Paul Holmgren expects his number one netminder to be better because "he's a good goalie" and "he has a year under his belt in a pressure-packed marketplace." Philadelphia may be weaker defensively this year, but they still have an impressive crops of forwards, so wins shouldn't be an issue. If Bryzgalov can play more consistently this campaign then he should become a solid starter in fantasy hockey, but don't draft him with the expectation that he will shoot up into elite status because he is still a bit of a gamble.

Pekka Rinne pitched in a magnificent Thanksgiving performance on Thursday night, stopping all 37 shots he faced in the Preds' 1-0 overtime win against Edmonton.

Rinne's fifth victory in a row and second shutout of the year came in clutch, as the Oilers desperately tried to snap an ugly losing streak and carried the play for a good chunk of the night. Rinne improves his record to a sparkling 15-3-1 so far this season with a 1.82 goals against average and .932 save percentage.

Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) may be ready to return on Friday night.

He was paired with Dan Girardi during Thursday's practice, which bumped John Moore to an extra. McDonagh may be a game-time decision after missing the past 11 games with a separated shoulder.

Cameron Talbot will get the call for Friday's game at Philadelphia.

Coach Alain Vigneault said that Henrik Lundqvist will start on Saturday in the second game of the home-and-home set versus the Flyers. Talbot posted a 31-save shutout against Philly on Nov. 19 in his last outing.

Claude Giroux has been piling up shots on goal this season.

He is currently tied with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead with a total of 97 in 21 games. That puts him on pace to top 375 shots, which is significantly higher than his previous best of 242 during the 2011-12 campaign. "It just happens," he said. "I've got a lot of shots. I saw it last week [and said], 'Wow, I have a lot of shots.' The goals are hopefully going to come more. But when you shoot the puck good things are going to happen." Giroux has seven goals and 19 assists.

Dan Ellis has been called up from the minors to back him up, while Roberto Luongo is out with an upper-body injury. Luongo isn't expected to be out for very long.

Viktor Fasth will get the nod for Edmonton on Thursday against Nashville.

Ben Scrivens hasn't won a game since Oct. 27 and he's allowed 10 goals in his past two outings. He may play in Friday's contest with St. Louis. Fasth started Tuesday's loss to Dallas, but he played a strong game. He has also struggled mightily this campaign.

Adam Lowry has been banned for one game for a boarding infraction on Buffalo forward Patrick Kaleta.

Ryan Garbutt has been suspended for two games for kneeing Edmonton's Taylor Hall.

The incident occurred on Tuesday night and it earned Garbutt a minor penalty for tripping in the contest. He will be eligible to return on Dec. 2 versus Toronto.

Justin Schultz will be a healthy scratch Thursday night versus Nashville.

"Justin has struggled a little bit as of late, and we felt it was best to hit the reset button," said coach Dallas Eakins. Schultz has recorded four assists in his past six games, but he also has a minus-4 rating during that time and his ice time dropped to 15:13 against Dallas on Tuesday. He made a bad line change that led to a goal by Tyler Seguin in the contest.

Mike Fisher will make his 2014-15 debut on Thursday night after recovering from an Achilles injury.

He suffered a ruptured Achilles during off-season training, so he's bound to be rusty once his adrenaline wears down. Fisher had 20 goals and 49 points in 75 games with the Predators last year. He's slated to play with Derey Roy and Olli Jokinen because Matt Cullen is injured.

Roberto Luongo's upper-body injury is reportedly not serious.

That's very good news for the Panthers and for fantasy owners. Luongo has been excellent this season in Florida, while sporting a .927 save percentage and a 2.33 goals-against average. He picked up his seventh win of the year on Wednesday night even though he left in the second period due to injury. He isn't expected to miss much time.
