The Tampa Bay Lightning have placed Evgeni Nabokov on waivers.

Nabokov has had an incredible career for a guy picked ninth round of the 1994 draft, but his numbers this season are just awful. The 39-year-old has a 3-6-2 record with a 3.14 goals-against-average and a .882 save percentage. It's unlikely that a team will put in a claim for the veteran goaltender.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly asking for a second round draft pick for Cody Franson.

Franson is a potential unrestricted free-agent at season's end and the Leafs are in the middle of a free-fall. They have lost nine games in a row and it looks like they have every intention of being sellers as the trade deadline approaches. The 27-year-old has six goals, 29 points and minus-7 rating in 49 games this season.

Evgeni Malkin won't play in Sunday's game against Nashville, but it's possible that he returns on Wednesday.

Malkin took part in practice on Saturday, but he isn't quite ready to return just yet. The Penguins will start their western-Canadian road trip in Edmonton on Wednesday and Malkin could be available then. I feel so much better," Malkin said. "I skated a couple of days. It's tough to watch the game on TV, but now there's a good chance I'll be back (soon)." The 28-year-old has 19 goals and 51 points in 45 games this season.

Ryan Murray said he knee felt great after Saturday's game.

It was Murray's first game back since November 1 as he has now played in only five contests this season. He underwent two surgeries in the off-season and it appears that he has finally healed. Murray picked up his first assist of the season in the 3-1 loss and played 19:10 minutes but did not see any power play time. Don't worry if you own him in keeper leagues; he will see plenty of action on the pp in his NHL career.

Antti Niemi helped the Sharks earn a 1-0 win against the Blackhawks by making 31 saves Saturday night.

San Jose was outshot 31 to 19, and Niemi’s play between the pipes made all the difference. He now has four shutouts on the season, while helping the Sharks to a 5-0-1 record over his last six games. Niemi has a 2.51 goals-against average and .914 save percentage. Even during this hot stretch, Niemi is still more of a number-two in fantasy leagues.

Lance Bouma scored two times in the Flames’ 4-2 come-from-behind win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

Edmonton held a 2-0 lead into the third period, then the floodgates opened and the Flames erupted for four goals on 12 shots. Bouma scored the tying goal and the insurance marker at 16:27. He has eight goals and 19 points this season, so he’s not worth owning in fantasy leagues. Paul Byron and Sean Monahan got the other goals. Mikael Backlund and David Jones recorded two assists apiece.

Henrik Lundqvist says he is dealing with some headaches and light-headedness after taking a shot to the throat in the Rangers’ 4-1 win Saturday night.

Lundqvist’s mask had been slightly lifted by Ryan McDonagh’s stick during a battle in front and the throat protector was not in the right spot when the shot was taken. Lundqvist took several minutes to collect himself, but remained in the game, making 31 saves. After the tilt, Lundqvist said he is not dealing with concussion symptoms. "Obviously it’s not fun when it happens," Lundqvist said. "I’m actually glad, it could’ve been a lot worse. I feel lucky."

Ben Bishop kicked away 34 shots in the Lightning’s 3-1 win over Columbus on Saturday night.

Bishop was 3:26 away from recording a shutout when Ryan Johansen beat him. He has won five of his past six games, evidence of what makes him a valuable play in fantasy leagues. Bishop won’t post sterling rate stats — 2.32 goals-against average, .915 save percentage — but he plays for a very good team, so he his wins upside is high, of which he has 26.

John Klingberg’s four-point night led the Stars to a 5-2 win over the Jets on Saturday.

Klingberg scored twice and had two assists, in addition to two penalty minutes, a plus-two rating and two shots on goal in 22:38. Just 22 years old, he has shown in his short time in the NHL that he has the makings of a pretty good offensive blueliner. Klingberg has seven goals and 20 points in 34 games, so he’s certainly worth a bench addition, at least. Shawn Horcoff, Patrick Eaves and Jason Spezza picked up the other goals. Tyler Seguin registered three helpers.
Jan 31 - 10:44 PM

Steve Mason recorded a shutout on 30 saves in the Flyers’ 1-0 victory over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Mason has been very sharp since returning from an injury, giving up a total of three goals in the three games. The shutout is the second of the season, and he’s got five wins over his last five decisions. Mason has a 2.32 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. Suffice to say, this season has exceeded the expectations of many.

Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves in the Rangers’ 4-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Lundqvist and the Rangers seemed to avoid a major injury when he was hit in the throat with a shot that eluded his neck flap early in the second period. Lundqvist needed several moments to be looked at by the trainers and collect himself, but he would stay in the game. Afterwards, Lundqvist said he was a bit light-headed and had headaches, but there are no concussion worries. The Rangers had no business being in this one in the first half, but that’s why they pay King Henrik top dollar. He has a 2.23 goals-against average and .922 save percentage this season.
