Dmitry Orlov (wrist) still believes he will play this season.

That being said, we're almost into February and Orlov isn't close to returning. "It's getting better," Orlov noted. "It's still stiff and I need to keep making it strong. I think I will play this season. But it needs to be stronger." He suffered a fractured wrist while playing in the 2014 World Championship. He had surgery to repair the damage, but then suffered an infection.

Joe Pavelski scored a goal in a 6-3 win against Anaheim.

Pavelski has found the back of the net in three straight contests and is on a four-game point streak. He has 25 goals and 43 points in 49 contests in 2014-15.

Jake Allen will get the nod for St. Louis on Friday versus Carolina.

Brian Elliott started Thursday's 5-4 shootout win against Nashville and will get the night off. Allen made 19 saves on 20 shots when the Blues hosted the Hurricanes on Jan. 10.

Tomas Hertl had two assists in a 6-3 victory against Anaheim.

Hertl has had a disappointing sophomore campaign with just eight goals and 19 points in 49 games. He got a chance to regain some confidence in the minors during the All-Star break though and that might set him up for a strong finish to the season.
Jan 30 - 11:14 AM

T.J. Oshie has scored in three consecutive contests.

He got his 14th goal of the year in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville. Oshie has enjoyed an excellent month, with eight goals and six assists in 10 January games, which has helped him rebound from a tough start to the year.

Nick Schultz scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win against Winnipeg on Thursday.

Schultz was playing in his second straight game after dealing with a minor upper-body injury. He has 11 points in 48 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 11:12 AM

Brayden Schenn had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 victory on Thursday.

Schenn has 11 goals and 31 points in 50 games this season. He might breakout next season, but for now he should comfortably surpass his career-high of 41 points.
Jan 30 - 11:10 AM

Filip Forsberg has scored in two straight games coming out of the All-Star break.

He is first on the Predators with 17 goals and he continues to lead all rookies in scoring with 42 points in 47 matches.
Jan 30 - 11:07 AM

Johnny Boychuk had an assist on Thursday against his old team, the Boston Bruins.

Unfortunately for Boychuk, it didn't help much as Boston still earned a 5-2 victory. Either way, the move to the Islanders has worked out for Boychuk as he has been a top defender on his new team while scoring four goals and 25 points in 38 contests.
Jan 30 - 11:04 AM

Roman Josi contributed two assists in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to St. Louis.

He was also the only member of the Predators who scored in the shootout. Josi is on pace for a career season offensively after he earned 40 points a year ago. He already has eight goals and 31 points in 47 games this season.
Jan 30 - 11:02 AM

Travis Hamonic had an assist in a 5-2 loss to Boston Thursday night.

Hamonic isn't known for his work offensively, but he has recorded a point in four of his last six games. He now has three goals and 10 assists in 38 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 11:02 AM

Cory Schneider is expected to start against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

It will be Schneider's 43rd start of the 2014-15 campaign, which matches his previous career-high. Although Schneider has been a highly regarded netminder for years, until this season he's always had the split the goaltending duties with a top-tier veteran goalie. Schneider has a 2.37 GAA and .921 save percentage in 42 contests.
Jan 30 - 10:58 AM

Thomas Vanek had the only assist on Zach Parise's game winner in a 1-0 blanking of Calgary on Thursday night.

His 21st helper of the season was the 300th of his career. Vanek has 30 points in 48 games with the Wild, but the two-time 40-goal scorer has found the back of the net just nine times.
Jan 30 - 10:56 AM

Marian Gaborik skated on the third line during Thursday's practice.

We wouldn't be overly concerned as Gaborik shouldn't stay separated from Anze Kopitar for long. Still, this hurts Gaborik's fantasy value in the short term. Kyle Clifford took Gaborik's spot on the top unit.
Jan 30 - 10:54 AM

Kyle Clifford was bumped up to the Kings' top line during Thursday's practice.

Marian Gaborik was moved to the third line as a result. It's hard to see Gaborik being kept off the top-six for long, so Clifford's position is likely temporary. Still, it makes Clifford a player worth keeping an eye on when Los Angeles faces Boston on Saturday.
