The Calgary Flam es have signed Brad Winchester to a professional tryout.

Winchester was an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after playing last season with San Jose where he potted six goals and had 10 points. He is a fourth line player who plays all out. "Given the body of work that he has had in his career . . . he's a big guy and he's a hard guy to play against," GM Jay Feaster said. "He's a tenacious guy on the forecheck. We thought he did a real good job last season in San Jose, for example. We just felt that because he was willing to come in on a tryout basis, it's a free look for us. We'll see where it goes." Winchester had 88 penalty minutes last season and the Flames could use a replacement for Tom Kostopolous who filled that role last season.

Rickard Rakell scored two goals for the Ducks in Wednesday night’s 5-3 win over the Bruins.

The Duck and Bruins were swapping goals most of the night and with the game tied 3-3 and less than three minutes remaining, Rakell fired one past Tuukka Rask for the game winner. This snapped a five-game streak in which Rakell failed to score a single point. The last time he was on the board was February 9 against the Sabres with one goal and one assist.

Braden Holtby stopped 33 of 34 shots in Washington's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Only Brayden Schenn was able to beat Holtby tonight. The Capitals goaltender is an incredible 15-0-1 in his last 16 decisions. The victory over the Flyers also allowed him to become the fourth goalie in the league to hit the 30-win mark. Holtby will enter his next start with a stellar 1.99 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage. He has to be considered the top fantasy player at his position.

Evgeni Kuznetsov scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Kuznetsov extended Washington's lead to 2-0 late in the first period and his second marker of the evening made it 3-1 for his team in the second frame. He finished the game with four shots on goal and one hit in 15:12 of ice time. Kuznetsov has 14 goals and 47 points in 59 games in 2016-17. The Capitals forward has also racked up 12 points in his last 11 contests. Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie also scored for the Caps.

John Gibson is out Wednesday night with a lower-body injury.

He got the morning off and now we know why. He is considered day-to-day. Jonathan Bernier is between the pipes for the Ducks against Boston and Jhonas Enroth is backing him up.

Kris Russell scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers.

Russell picked the perfect time to score his first goal of the season, as he was able to break the 3-3 tie with less than eight minutes remaining in regulation. He finished the game with one shot on goal and a plus-2 rating in 19:55 of ice time. Russell has seven points in 49 games this season. Oscar Klefbom, Zack Kassian and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored for Edmonton.

Ryan Callahan had a follow-up procedure on his ailing hip Tuesday and he is out indefinitely.

He has been limited to just 18 games this season and hasn't played since Jan. 7. Callahan missed the first eight matches of the year while recovering from off-season hip surgery and the ailment has continued to bother him. It wouldn't be surprising if he didn't play again this season, but that hasn't been determined yet.

James Reimer will get the nod again for the Panthers on Wednesday against Edmonton.

Reimer has been outstanding lately, while posting a 5-0-0 record with a 1.44 goals-against average and a .948 save percentage in his last six games. That includes five starts. He made 26 stops in a 2-1 win over St. Louis on Monday.

Jeff Zatkoff has been placed on waivers.

The Kings appear to be preparing for Jonathan Quick's return to the lineup, but this doesn't mean it's imminent. Zatkoff has played in just 13 games this season, while posting a 2-7-1 record with a 2.95 goals-against average and an .879 save percentage.

In some encouraging news, Marner was on the ice Wednesday morning with some teammates and he didn't appear to be having any issues. A return on Saturday could be a possibility. Marner will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday with what is believed to be a shoulder injury.
