The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired former vice president of hockey operations Dave Poulin and assistant general manager Claude Loiselle.

Although Toronto hasn't engaged in a major shakeup of its roster and has decided to retain head coach Randy Carlyle and GM Dave Nonis, the Maple Leafs have engaged in a personnel shakeup after they endured yet another spectacular collapse in 2013-14. They have also hired 28-year-old Kyle Dubas to serve as an assistant general manager. Dubas previously served as the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds' general manager for three years. He was one of the youngest GMs in OHL history when he originally took the job with the Greyhounds.

Thomas Greiss is projected to start on Saturday.

Marc-Andre Fleury will play on Friday and the plan right now is for the goaltenders to split those two games. Greiss has a 1.96 GAA and .938 save percentage in three contests this season.

David Booth (foot) has been sent to the minors on a conditioning stint.

Booth hasn't played yet this season because of the injury. Once he shakes off the rust, he'll begin the task of trying to re-establish himself after struggling for years in Vancouver. He might end up having some worth to the Maple Leafs, but we can't recommend owning him in standard fantasy leagues.

Patrick Sharp (lower body) is on the long-term injured reserve list.

A player put on the LTIR has to miss at least 10 games and 24 days. Sharp hasn't played since Nov. 4 and he's already been sidelined for six contests, so the decision to put him on the long-term list shouldn't be regarded as a grim indicator. Sharp was originally projected to miss three-to-four weeks, so based on that timetable, he wasn't expected to return for at least another week anyways.

Jason Spezza has agreed to a four-year, $30 million contract extension.

Spezza currently comes with a $7 million annual cap hit, so he's only getting a minor increase. That seems pretty reasonable for a center that can average close to a point-per-game. Given that Spezza is 31 years old, the fact that the Stars were able to limit the deal to four years is to their benefit as well. Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn are both tied to $5.75 million and $5.25 million cap hits respectively, so Dallas will be able to comfortably keep the trio on their roster for at least a few years.

Nick Bjugstad scored two goals in regulation and added the shootout winner in Florida's 3-2 win over San Jose.

Bjugstad had a night to remember against the Sharks. The 22-year-old gave the Panthers a 1-0 and 2-1 lead in the game. With the shootout tied at one, Bjugstad beat Antti Niemi to give Florida the win. After a very slow start to the season, he now has four goals and seven points in his last three games. The Panthers don't score many goals so it will be difficult for Bjugstad to keep putting up points.

Ryan Getzlaf scored a goal and an assist in Anaheim's 4-3 shootout win over Vancouver.

The Ducks opened the scoring in the first minute of play and Getzlaf made it 2-0 before the Canucks battled back to take a 3-2 lead. Matt Beleskey tied the game in the third period to send the game to overtime. Corey Perry and Jakob Silfverberg scored to give the Ducks the win. Getzlaf now has six goals and 19 points in 20 games this season. The Ducks' forward was named the game's second star.

James van Riemsdyk scored a pair of goals as the Leafs toppled Tampa Bay 5-2 on Thursday night, helping the team overcome two embarrassing losses in the week before.

The Leafs were the target of incredible backlash from their fans and the media after two lopsided losses to Buffalo and Nashville, but looked much better against a strong Lightning squad. JVR now has nine goals and 17 points through 20 games so far for the Maple Leafs. The 25-year-old is usually a reliable source for points playing with Phil Kessel on Toronto's top line. Expect the Middletown, N.J. native to keep producing just a tad below this pace as the season proceeds.

Patrick Kane scored the game-winning goal in Chicago's 4-3 win over Calgary on Thursday.

Kane also registered an assist in the game. After a slow start to the season, the 26-year-old has now scored in three consecutive games. Kane has also collected six points in his last three games. Kane has seven goals and 16 points in 19 games this season. He's starting to heat up and he should continue producing offence consistently the rest of the way. Kane was named the game's first star.
Nov 20 - 11:52 PM

Alex Ovechkin scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Washington’s 3-2 win over Colorado.

Ovechkin broke a 2-2 tie with just under six minutes remaining in the third period. The points end a three-game pointless streak for the Russian sniper. He now has nine goals and 18 points in 19 games this season. Consistency is a problem at times for Ovechkin, but he should produce at a point-per-game pace the rest of the way.
Nov 20 - 11:32 PM

Updating a previous item, Dan Hamhuis will not return to Thursday's game against the Ducks.

Hamhuis was injured early in the first period of the game and needed help coming off the ice. It's unclear how long he will be out.
Nov 20 - 10:31 PM

Max Pacioretty snapped home two goals on his 26th birthday to help the Habs win their seventh game in the past eight with a 4-1 win over St. Louis

Pacioretty has five goals and nine points in his past seven games, accounting for 18 points in 21 games in total this season. The 26-year-old appears on pace to challenge the 65 point career high total he managed in 2012.
