Aaron Dell allowed six goals on 29 shots in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks have played really well for most of the season, but they seem to be falling apart over the last few days. Not only is this an ugly loss to a non-playoff team, it's also their fifth consecutive defeat. Dell has a 10-6-1 record with a 2.09 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage. The Sharks have to snap out of this funk soon or they'll lose top spot in the Pacific Division.
Mar 24 - 11:56 PM

Kari Lehtonen stopped 20 of 21 shots in Friday's 6-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

The only goal Lehtonen gave up came on the power play (his team was leading 4-0 anyway). The Stars goalie is 2-0-1 in his last three games and he's given up two goals or less in each of those contests. Lehtonen has also surrendered two goals or less in five of his last six outings. He'll enter his next start with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.

Joe Thornton found the back of the net in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks still hold a slim lead at the top of the Pacific Division, but they won't sit there for much longer if they continue playing like this. Thornton's power play goal was meaningless, as he cut the Stars' lead to 4-1 at the time. Thornton has seven goals and 42 assists in 74 games this season. San Jose has dropped five straight games.
Mar 24 - 11:51 PM

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

Petr Mrazek allowed two goals on 32 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Wings held a 1-0 lead heading into the third period, but they let it slip away. Mrazek has given up just two goals in each of his last two games, but he has just one win in his last seven games. He'll enter his next start with a 16-20-8 record, a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
Mar 24 - 11:10 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed one goal on 30 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Vasilevskiy allowed a goal to Henrik Zetterberg midway through the second period, but he was perfect the rest of the night. The win puts an end to Vasilevskiy's three-game losing streak. He has an 18-16-6 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. The Bolts are now one point behind the Islanders for the final Wild Card spot in the East.
Mar 24 - 10:55 PM

Henrik Zetterberg found the back of the net in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Zetterberg opened the scoring at the 8:03 mark of the second period. The goal was the 325th of his career, which moved him into sixth in franchise history. Zetterberg is now just 10 goals away from tying Ted Lindsay for fifth on the Red Wings list. The Red Wings captain has 16 goals and 61 points in 73 games this season.
Mar 24 - 10:48 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

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals on 46 shots in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss the New York Islanders.

Fleury gave up two more goals in the shootout. His record now falls to 18-8-7 on the season. He'll enter his next start with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. As long as Matt Murray is healthy, Fleury won't be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 24 - 10:38 PM

Jaroslav Halak turned aside 37 of 40 shots in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He also stopped two of Pittsburgh's three shooters in the shootout. This was Halak's first win since Dec. 27. The Isles goalie was placed on waivers and sent to the minors on Dec. 31, but it looks like he might have a role in the NHL between now and the end of the season. He has a 7-8-5 record with a 3.21 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage. The win moves the Islanders into the final Wild Card spot in the East.
Mar 24 - 10:34 PM

Matt Cullen scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

Cullen picked up the primary assist on Cameron Gaunce's second-period goal to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead. Cullen also added a goal of his own at the 13:50 mark of the third frame to tie the game at three. The veteran finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 18:28 of ice time. Cullen has 11 goals and 16 assists this season. Sidney Crosby scored the other goal for the Penguins.
Mar 24 - 10:27 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.
Mar 24 - 10:20 PM

Logan Shaw is a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

This will be his fifth consecutive game as a healthy scratch. He has two goals and five assists in 49 games. John Gibson and Kevin Bieksa are both out due to injury.

Brenden Kichton will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Kichton was recalled from the minors on Thursday, but he didn't play against the Kings last night and he won't play against the Ducks tonight. He has no fantasy value. Dustin Byfuglien, Toby Enstrom, Paul Postma, Ben Chiarot, Ondrej Pavelec, Shawn Matthias and Marko Dano are all out due to injury.

Marko Dano (undisclosed) won't suit up in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

There isn't much information about Dano's injury, but beat reporter Ken Wiebe insisted that he isn't serving as a healthy scratch. Dano also missed yesterday's game against the Los Angeles Kings. He's day-to-day for now.
