Pekka Rinne and the Nashville Predators are still struggling a bit lately, including Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Rinne only has one win in his last five starts (1-3-1), as he allowed four goals on 25 shots against the Red Wings. His overall stats are still Vezina-worthy, however, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried just yet.

"The Monster" Jonas Gustavsson continues to be sharp since returning from injury issues, as he was a big factor in the Detroit Red Wings' 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators.

Gustavsson stopped 37 out of 40 shots for his third win of the season. He's stopped 65 out of 69 shots since returning to action, making it easier to justify demoting Petr Mrazek.

The Anaheim Ducks grabbed Tomas Fleischmann from the Florida Panthers for Dany Heatley and a third-round pick.

"The Flash" hasn't enjoyed a great season with Florida, but he's shown flashes of brilliance in his NHL career, making him an intriguing piece in Anaheim. It doesn't hurt that he has money to earn, either.

Scary stuff for Buffalo Sabres prospect Mark Pysyk: he was reportedly hospitalized after collapsing during a pickup game of basketball.

He was described as "fairly alert and his vital signs were close to normal" while he was being transported by paramedics, so that's a good thing. It's unclear how much this incident may affect his future in the sport.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff was extremely critical of Kari Lehtonen following the Stars' 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado Friday night.

In fact, Ruff seemed to blame the loss entirely on Lehtonen. "I know this is hard, but the goaltending performance doesn't match the effort of the team,' Ruff said. 'You need goaltending. It's as simple as that. There's nights that he has to steal games, there's nights where he has to out-perform the other guy. Our goaltending has been tough on our team, and I think that's where the frustration is." There is no telling whether Lehtonen will get the start Sunday against Anaheim. It's not as if newly-acquired Jhonas Enroth, who has yet to win in four starts with the Stars, has been any better.

Nathan MacKinnon was benched for much of the third period in Friday night's 5-4 shootout win over Dallas.

He played only 1:48 in the third frame and did not participate in the shootout after getting no shots on goal in the first two periods. Colorado coach Patrick Roy indicated that MacKinnon would play on the team's third line Saturday night against Minnesota. Tough love!

The Washington Capitals acquired defenseman Tim Gleason in a trade that sent Jack Hillen and a fourth-round pick to the Carolina Hurricanes.

It hasn't been a great season for Gleason, who has seven points and a -18 rating (although with 44 PIM) in 55 games so far in 2014-15. Playing for Washington may at least give him a boost, though he's never scored more than 21 points in any single NHL season.

Newly-acquired Kimmo Timonen could play a key role with the Blackhawks down the stretch.

The Hawks have been riddled with injuries on their blueline. Johnny Oduya and Trevor van Riemsdyk are out in the short-term and Michal Roszival has lost his effectiveness. Enter the 40-year-old Timonen. Once he is cleared to play (blood clots), and that could come as early as Monday, he will play a prominent role in a five-on-five role as well as on the Hawks' second power play. Consider picking him up next week.

Jonathan Drouin made an unbelievable pass to set up Brian Boyle with Tampa's first goal in a 4-0 win over Chicago Friday night.

It was a blind behind-the-back beauty as Drouin was just about to circle behind the Chicago net. For those of you who missed it, here is a link: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=35&id=765493&lang=en Drouin will be an NHL star. It's not a matter of if, but when.

Brian Elliott will get the start in goal for St. Louis on Saturday.

The Blues take on the Edmonton Oilers. Elliott is coming off a 2-1 shootout win over Winnipeg on Thursday in which he kicked out 30 shots. He is 19-9-2 this season with a 2.21 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Jaroslav Halak picked up his 33rd win of the season on Friday to set a New York Islanders record for wins in a season.

Halak was sharing the record of 32 held by Billy Smith, Rick Di Pietro and Chris Osgood before the win over the Flames on Friday. Halak is 33-13-0 with a 2.46 GAA and a .911 save percentage. He is expected to get the night off on Saturday.
