Tomas Vokoun turned aside all 28 shots he faced in a 3-0 blanking of the New York Rangers Thursday.

The goose egg was his first of the season and it lifted his record to 2-1-0. Marc-Andre Fleury has had some consistency issues early into this year but he still is not in danger his starting gig to Vokoun. However, if you have Fleury, it would be a good idea to hedge your bets and use Vokoun as a handcuff.

Alex Galchenyuk has enjoyed an excellent start to the 2014-15 season.

He scored his third goal and seventh point in seven games during Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over Detroit. Galchenyuk tucked the puck into the net on a wraparound goal late in the third period to send the game into an extra session. He has credited his off-season training regimen with his confident play to open the year. "I had a great summer of training and I definitely got stronger," said Galchenyuk. "I feel more confident physically. Every summer, your goal is to get more confident so that you can compete. Your linemates can also make a difference. I'm happy to be playing with (Tomas Plekanec and P.A. Parenteau) and they have helped me a lot." The 20-year-old forward is stepping up for the Canadiens and new career highs in all offensive categories should be attainable even though his point-per-game pace will probably not be maintained.

Jonathan Drouin picked up his first NHL point on an assist in Tampa Bay’s 2-1 OT win over Calgary on Tuesday.

Playing in his second NHL game the rookie was at times dazzling with his puck control while playing on a line with Steven Stamkos. Drouin really should have had the OT winner but was stymied by Karri Ramo on a two-on-nothing chance with Steven Stamkos. As long as the kid is playing with Stamkos he is a great fantasy option this season.

Pekka Rinne was steady again Tuesday night as he steered aside 33 of 36 shots en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Coyotes.

After an injury-plagued 2013-14 campaign it was fair to question Rinne's form entering this season, but he has answered all critics in the early going with a 4-0-1 record in his first five starts. He has been spectacular so far, having allowed just eight goals all year and posting a 1.55 GAA to go along with a .940 save percentage. It's safe to say he has regained his position in the top tier of fantasy goaltenders.

Phil Kessel put on quite the show Tuesday as he potted a pair of goals and added a helper in Toronto's 5-2 win on Long Island.

Though he entered the night with a respectable five points in six games, Kessel's season had been a mix of peaks and valleys until he exploded with this showing. James van Riemsdyk also scored for the Leafs in the win, as did Roman Polak and David Clarkson.

Karri Ramo will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

The Calgary Flames have been dividing the goaltending workload evenly between Ramo and Jonas Hiller. Ramo has a 2.30 GAA and .920 save percentage in three starts.

The Los Angeles Kings are standing behind the NHL's decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely.

The NHL acted after Voynov was arrested following an alleged incident of domestic violence that sent an adult woman to the hospital. While the Kings believe the NHL is acting correctly, they do have questions about what this means for their franchise. More specifically, they aren't sure how this will be handled from a salary cap and roster space perspective. The Kings have looked through the CBA and don't feel it addressed their questions, but they will speak to the league Wednesday.

Reto Berra (neck) will indeed start in Tuesday's game.

Berra was already projected to start in that contest, barring a setback. He has a 0.72 GAA and .974 save percentage in three games this season.
Oct 21 - 1:41 PM

Devan Dubnyk will start in Tuesday's game against Nashville.

The Coyotes have a bit of a goalie controversy given Mike Smith's slow start to the season. Smith has a 5.33 GAA and .822 save percentage in three games. While his struggles might lead to Dubnyk getting more ice time in the short-term, Smith should get more opportunities to turn his season around before he's in any serious jeopardy of losing the starting gig. It's worth adding that Dubnyk did play for the Predators in 2013-14, but he only appeared in two games, so this isn't the biggest of reunions.
Oct 21 - 1:36 PM

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Khudobin was been splitting the Hurricanes' starts with Cam Ward so far. Khudobin is off to a far better start though with a 2.44 GAA and .923 save percentage.
Oct 21 - 1:16 PM

Pavel Datsyuk (shoulder) should be back into the Red Wings' lineup on Tuesday.

Datsyuk missed the start of the season after sustaining the injury during Detroit's first preseason game. He's battle more than his fair share of ailments in recent years, but he's one of the league's top players when he's healthy.
Oct 21 - 12:48 PM

Corey Crawford has sustained an upper-body injury.

Crawford will not start against the Philadelphia Flyers as a result. Beyond that, he's considered day-to-day. Crawford has a 1.66 GAA and .926 save percentage in four games this season.
