Victor Hedman left Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal early with a suspected lower body injury.

Hedman played just 15:30 with over four minutes on special teams without registering a point. Nothing definitive is known yet about Hedman's potential ailment, but Coach Cooper has already noted that he's questionable for Tuesday's tilt with Toronto.

Jonathan Drouin ended his 42-game goal drought off a power play breakaway during Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal.

While three goals and 30 points over one's first 66 career NHL games wouldn't be bad for anyone else, much was expected of the highly touted Drouin coming into the season. Keep the faith, next season.
Mar 30 - 11:40 PM

Anton Stralman collected an empty net goal along with a power play assist during Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal.

Stralman had a great game. He posted six shots, the second most among all skaters, while skating over 21 minutes including nearly eight minutes on special teams. He now has nine goals and 38 points this season.
Mar 30 - 11:37 PM

Ondrej Palat picked up two assists during Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal.

Palat now has five points over his last five games, with four assists during that time. On Monday, it was his second helper that wowed as he drew two Montreal defenders to him at the offensive blue line, took the hit and shoveled a perfect past to Namestnikov for his second goal of the game. Palat now has 43 assists and 59 points over 70 games this season, tying last season's total over 81 games.
Mar 30 - 11:33 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov recorded three points in a game for the first time in his career during Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal.

Namestnikov had a great night. He won 64% of his draws, played 3:26 on the power play, and even laid out a hit. His two goals were pretty as he froze Carey Price both times with a deke before beating him short-side. The tally's give him nine goals and 16 points through 38 games this season.
Mar 30 - 11:26 PM

Ben Bishop made 25 saves, collected a minor penalty plus two assists during Monday night's 5-3 playoff-clinching win over Montreal.

It was a full night for Bishop to say the least. Bishop now has four penalty minutes to his credit, along with four assists on the season. It wasn't a great showing otherwise, though. Bishop allowed a soft short-handed goal and stopped just 16 shots at even strength. But a win is a win. His record improves to 37-13-4 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.37 GAA.

Semyon Varlamov will get the start in goal Monday night versus the Oilers.

Varlamov will make his 54th start of the season Monday night where he will look for his 27th win. He has been a bit of a disappointment this season after breaking out in the 2013-2014 season as he as a 2.58 goals-against-average and .920 save percentage in 2014-2015. He has not fared well in his career against the Oilers posting a 6-8-0 record, 3.25 GAA, and .891 save percentage in 15 appearances.

Granlund was forced to miss the Flames last game Sunday night in Nashville but is ok to return to the ice Monday night. The 21-year-old has scored six goals and 10 assists in 42 games this season.
Mar 30 - 8:42 PM

Forwards Josh Jooris and Brandon Bollig and defenseman Corey Potter will be held out of Monday's game with the Dallas Stars.

Jooris is the most notable name of the bunch here as he had skated in the last four Flames games but with Markus Granlund returning from an illness, he will be listed as a healthy scratch Monday. On the season he has 12 goals and 22 points in 56 games. Bollig will sit for a third consecutive game while Potter has played in just two games this season; his last being on March 3rd.
Mar 30 - 8:39 PM

Forwards Colton Sceviour and Travis Moen and defenseman Jordie Benn are expected to be healthy scratches Monday night versus the Flames.

Sceviour will sit for a second straight game Monday night and hasn’t scored a point in six straight games. Moen will continue to watch from the sidelines as he hasn’t played in a game since February 17th and has just a goal and six assists in 40 games overall. Jordie Benn will also sit for a second consecutive game and has scored one goal and 14 assists in 60 games this year. Benn has been experiencing back troubles the last few days so him being sidelined shouldn’t come as a surprise. Either way, the trio does not carry any fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 8:35 PM

Defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Chris Butler and forward Chris Porter will remain healthy scratches Monday night in Vancouver.

Bortuzzo has played in just nine games with the Blues since being traded by the Penguins and has scored a goal and two points. He will sit out for a third straight game.

Mar 30 - 7:56 PM

Cedric Paquette (leg) will be in the Lightning lineup Monday night to take on the Canadiens.

Paquette avoided a major injury and will not miss any time due to the leg injury. He has been a useful real-life player for Tampa Bay this year but doesn’t carry any fantasy value. The 21-year-old has 12 goals and 19 points in 58 games this season. Jonathan Marchessault will be a healthy scratch.
Mar 30 - 7:26 PM

Defensemen Jamie McBain and Brayden McNabb and forward Andy Andreoff will all be healthy scratches Monday versus Chicago.

McNabb has played in 65 games this year picking up a goal and 22 assists but hasn’t dressed since March 21st. And Andreoff has played in just 17 games this year scoring one goal.
