General managers reached a consensus to make two formal recommendations aimed at cleaning up faceoffs on day two of the annual meetings on Tuesday in Boca Raton, Fla.

In one proposed rule change, wingers would line up five feet from the faceoff dot instead of three. This alteration would delay wingers from reaching the puck battle between the two centermen, or as Isles GM Garth Snow put it, "less B.S." The GMs are also proposing that if a centerman commits an infraction during the faceoff, he no longer gets thrown out of the draw. Instead, he still has to take the faceoff from either 12 or 18 inches further from the dot. The GMs are proposing this change to eliminate the "delay tactic," where centers deliberately get themselves thrown out of the draw to delay the game and rest tired teammates.

Brock Boeser scored the game-winning goal in his NHL debut.

Vancouver earned a 4-2 victory against the Minnesota Wild Saturday night. The Canucks announced that they had signed Boeser to an entry-level contract mere hours before the game started. He was selected with the 23rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, but spent the past two seasons with the University of North Dakota rather than signing sooner. He had 16 goals and 34 points in 32 NCAA games this season.

Aaron Ekblad (neck) will miss the Panthers' next five games.

That's Saturday's contest and the entirety of the Panthers' upcoming road trip. Ekblad has a sore neck and has been dealing with headaches. Panthers coach/GM Tom Rowe said that it's not related to Ekblad's concussion, which he was cleared of, but Rowe regrets allowing Ekblad to return from it on Tuesday. "I’m not going to lie, I wish we didn’t," Rowe said of Ekblad playing Tuesday. "That’s on me. The doctors cleared him, our medical staff cleared him but I had some reservations and I wish I stayed with my gut. That’s no one’s fault but my own." After Ekblad's latest issue, the Panthers are going to be very conservative with him.

Laurent Brossoit is projected to start on Saturday.

It's just Brossoit's third start of the season and his first since Feb. 21. He has a 2.26 GAA and .928 save percentage in 2016-17.

Tuukka Rask is dealing with a lower-body injury.

Rask missed Friday's practice, but his availability for Saturday's game wasn't necessarily revealed. We got a hint that this would be coming though when Boston summoned Zane McIntyre this morning. Saturday's game against the Islanders is critical for the Bruins' playoff hopes so to be missing Rask right now is a serious blow. Anton Khudobin will be called upon to start in his place.
Mar 25 - 12:28 PM

Carolina will likely start Eddie Lack on Saturday.

Lack was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate. He's been doing well lately, allowing two or fewer goals in each of his last five games.
Mar 25 - 12:14 PM

Michal Neuvirth will probably play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Neuvirth's first start since March 9. He has a 2.91 GAA and .887 save percentage in 26 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Kyle Okposo is expected to be back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Okposo hasn't suited up since Mar. 2 due to a rib injury. He has 19 goals and 43 points in 63 games this season. Okposo is also going to be put on the power play right away, so he could have some decent value in standard fantasy leagues.

Brock Boeser has inked an entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

Boeser was taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He had 16 goals and 34 points in 32 games with the University of North Dakota this season. He'll go right to work for the Canucks as he's expected to make his NHL debut against Minnesota on Saturday.

Adam Cracknell scored a hat trick in Friday's 6-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Well, no one could have predicted this kind of production from Cracknell. The Stars forward gave his team 1-0, 4-0, 5-1 leads in tonight's victory. He finished the game with a plus-3 rating and five shots on goal in just 11:35 of ice time. He has 10 goals and five assists in 61 games. Tonight's offensive outburst won't change the fact that he doesn't have any value in most fantasy leagues. Brett Ritchie, Jamie Benn and John Klingberg also scored for the Stars.
Mar 24 - 11:47 PM

Nikita Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 OT win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Lightning forward simply can't be stopped. He scored three goals in last night's win over the Bruins and he's now recorded four multi-point games in a row. Tonight, Kucherov picked up the primary assist on Ondrej Palat's game-tying goal in the third period before scoring the game-winner at the 3:28 mark of overtime. The Russian sniper has 38 goals and 40 assists in 67 games this season. He continues to be one of the best players in the NHL.
Mar 24 - 10:43 PM

John Tavares picked up a pair of assists in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Penguins.

He also scored the game-winning goal in the shootout. Tavares netted both of his assists in the second period, as he helped set up goals by Anders Lee and Casey Cizikas. Tavares finished the game with a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 21:20 of ice time. The Islanders captain is now riding a five-game point streak and he's picked up at least one point in nine of his last 10. Tavares has 27 goals and 37 assists in 73 games.
