The NHL will grandfather in visors starting with the 2013-14 season.

The NHL and NHLPA agreed to the rule change at Tuesday's meeting. Any player that enters the NHL starting next season will be required to wear a visor, while current players will have the option. The league did the same thing with helmets over two decades ago. The visor issue became a hot-button topic this season when players like Marc Staal, who has since started wearing a visor, suffered major facial injuries due to inadvertent pucks and high sticks. The sides also agreed to test hybrid icing during the preseason and possibly use it during the regular season if the testing goes well. The league will also try shallower nets next year, which, along with the other two changes, are subject to approval by the Board of Governors.

Casey DeSmith will get the start in Saturday's game against the Sharks.

DeSmith will be making back-to-back starts, which is a little surprising. He made 28 saves in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. DeSmith has a 1-1-0 record with a 2.14 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed two goals on 36 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Lundqvist made his 40th appearance of the season tonight, making him the only player in NHL history to play at least 40 games in his first 13 seasons. The numerous injuries have caught up to the Rangers and without Lundqvist, this game would have gotten out of hand in a hurry. The Swedish netminder now has a 21-12-4 record with a 2.54 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers.

MacKinnon scored a beautiful goal, going from left to right before firing a perfect shot in behind Henrik Lundqvist to put the Avalanche up 2-0 in the second period. His two points bring his tally to 59 points in 45 games, with 19 of them coming in his last nine games. The 22-year-old forward is two points shy of Nikita Kucherov for the NHL lead. Erik Johnson and Mikko Rantanen also scored in the win.

Michal Neuvirth stopped 28 of 29 shots in a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Neuvirth started two straight games for the Flyers for the first time since early November. He has won each of his last three starts and could begin earning more action over Brian Elliott. With the Flyers back in action tomorrow night, Elliott might be back in goal. How Elliott fairs in tomorrow's game will likely have a big impact on the decision of who will start on Tuesday against the Red Wings.

The Colorado Avalanche will welcome back Tyson Jost to the lineup this afternoon against the New York Rangers.

Jost has eight points in 27 games this season and missed just one game due to his injury. Colin Wilson will be sacrificed in order to make room for the rookie forward. A.J. Greer and David Warsofsky will also be scratched.
Jan 20 - 3:01 PM

Reports are coming in that Martin Jones is day-to-day with what is considered a minor injury.

The injury could explain Jones' poor performances of late. Jones has only won one of his last five games, allowing 17 goals. The Sharks have recalled Troy Grosenick who will likely backup up Aaron Dell tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins. All Martin Jones owners should consider picking up Dell if they are in a bind.
Jan 20 - 1:51 PM

The Nashville Predators activated forward Victor Arvidsson from injured reserve today.

Arvidsson is expected to suit up after missing two games with a lower-body injury. His 13 goals and 27 points in 42 games put him on a 52-point pace which is nine less points than his career high of 61 set last season. He should be inserted in all fantasy lineups tonight.
Jan 20 - 1:29 PM

The Ottawa Senators have announced that Erik Karlsson (illness) will suit up tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Karlsson hasn't picked up a point in his last three games and will look to break his mini-slump tonight against the Leafs. It will be interesting to see how head coach Guy Boucher spreads out the minutes amongst his blueliners with Karlsson under the weather. The Swedish defenseman has 30 points in 38 games this season.
Jan 20 - 1:14 PM

Morgan Rielly (upper body) is considered as being doubtful to suit up tonight vs. the Ottawa Senators.

Rielly missed Friday's practice and was originally declared questionable for tonight's matchup but has since been downgraded. It's looking like the Leafs will need to break their three-game skid without their top blueliner who has picked up 31 points in 47 games so far this season.
Jan 20 - 1:11 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy was the first goaltender off the ice at today's morning skate, indicating he will be the starter tonight against the Wild.

Vasilevskiy is on a cold run, losing three of his last four starts while allowing a combined 19 goals. It'll be a tough task against Minnesota but the Russian goaltender owns an impressive 3-0-1 career record against them with a 0.97 goals against average and .968 save percentage. Vasilevskiy has a 27-8-2 record with a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage this season.
Jan 20 - 1:06 PM

The Nashville Predators have announced that forward Viktor Arvidsson will be a game-time decision tonight.

After a 61-point breakout campaign last season, Arvidsson has slightly regressed with a 52-point pace. The talented forward has missed the last two games due to his ailment but should be inserted into all fantasy lineups if he indeed is able to suit up tonight against the Florida Panthers.
