Ben Smith replaced Brandon Saad on the top line in practice on Saturday.

Smith played alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. Smith played most of the season in the minors but was recalled for the last game of the regular season. He scored in the final regular season game, but did not see any action in the first round of the playoffs. Smith was a surprise star in the 2011 playoffs as he scored three times in seven playoff games against the Canucks. The Blackhawks will be very pleased if he is able to come anywhere close to that performance this season.

Corey Crawford (vertigo) could reportedly miss the rest of the season.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Crawford is dealing with vertigo-like symptoms for the second time in his career. It's an unfortunate turn of events for a Chicago team that has struggled with consistency this year. Crawford has arguably been the Blackhawks' best player this season.

Ryan Johansen suffered what's believed to be an upper-body injury in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Johansen got his bell rung after taking a hit from Golden Knights forward William Carrier. The Predators forward was slow to get up, but he eventually skated off to his team's dressing room late in the second period and he never returned. The Predators didn't provide an update on his status after the game. This could be another big blow for a team that's already without Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson. Johansen has five goals and 21 assists in 40 games this season.

Juuse Saros turned aside all 43 shots he faced in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Predators got a strong performance from their number two goalie in this one. Kevin Fiala gave Nashville a 1-0 lead eight minutes into the third period. That's all the offense Saros needed to get his team the victory. The Predators netminder now has a 5-3-3 record with a 2.22 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this season. His fantasy outlook is a little bleak because Pekka Rinne will continue to get the majority of the starts for Nashville. Should Rinne suffer an injury, Saros would become a must-add in all fantasy formats.

Jason Spezza scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Stars head coach Ken Hitchcock made Spezza a healthy scratch in yesterday's game against the Bruins, and it sure seems like the veteran got the message. Both goals came on the power play. His first one gave the Stars a 2-1 lead in the first period while his second made it 3-2 for his team in the middle frame. Spezza now has seven goals and 18 points in 45 games this season. It's nice to see him produce again, but that doesn't mean he should be added in standard fantasy leagues.

Vince Dunn scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Interestingly enough, Dunn was expected to be a healthy scratch in this one. He ended up playing because Jay Bouwmeester, who was away from the team because his wife gave birth, didn't make it to Toronto in time for the game. Alexander Steen tied the game at one with less than one minute remaining in regulation before Dunn ended the overtime frame at the 1:43 mark of the period. Dunn has four goals and four assists in 40 games this season.

Rick Nash scored twice in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Nash scored a breakaway goal at the 6:30 mark of the first period before extending the Rangers' lead to 5-1 late in the second frame. The goals finally put an end to Nash's 12-game goalless drought. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating and seven shots on goal in 16:29 of ice time. Nash now has 11 goals and 20 points in 45 games this season. His days of being relevant in standard fantasy leagues are over. J.T. Miller, Paul Carey and Michael Grabner also scored for the Rangers in the victory.
Jan 16 - 10:07 PM

Damon Severson scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the New York Islanders.

It's a solid offensive performance for a guy who was made a healthy scratch at the beginning of the month. Severson did all of his damage in the second period, as he scored back-to-back goals less than two minutes apart. His first tally gave the Devils a 2-1 lead while his second made it 3-1 for his team. Severson finished the game with a plus-2 rating, five shots on goal and one hit in 21:07 of ice time. He's now amassed three points in his last two contests. He's up to six goals and 12 points in 40 games this season. Kyle Palmieri and Taylor Hall also scored for the Devils.

Marc Staal has suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The team has already announced that he won't be returning to tonight's game. They could be holding him out for precautionary reasons because they're currently leading 5-1 heading into the third period. The Rangers will likely provide an update on his status after the game.
Jan 16 - 9:04 PM

Ryan McDonagh (back) will return to the lineup Tuesday night.

McDonagh was listed as game-time decision and he's ready to play. He was reportedly suffering from back spasms, which kept him out of the lineup on Sunday.
Jan 16 - 6:19 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be in goal for Tuesday's match versus the New York Islanders.

Cory Schneider was going to start, but he has been scratched due to an illness. Ken Appleby has been summoned from the minors to serve as Kinkaid's understudy. Kinkaid has a 5-3-2 record this season with a 3.31 GAA and .897 save percentage.
