Jonathan Marchessault potted a goal and two assists in Vegas' 5-2 victory over Florida on Sunday.

Marchessault had just one point in his previous five games, but he had an early Christmas gift for his former team that left him unprotected at the expansion draft. The 26-year-old now has 11 goals and 29 points in as many games, exceeding the impressive production pace he set last season in Florida.
Dec 17 - 11:03 PM

Radim Vrbata scored a rare goal in Florida's 5-2 loss to Vegas on Sunday night.

Vrbata has not been very productive for the Panthers this season, with four goals and 12 points in 27 games. He has not been the same player who posted 20 goals and 55 points last year for Arizona.

Markus Granlund scored Vancouver's lone goal in a 6-1 loss to Calgary on Sunday night.

Alexander Edler and Henrik Sedin had the helpers on his power-play marker. Granlund has found the back of the net three times in the last two games. He has seven goals and nine points in 33 games.

Dec 17 - 10:21 PM

Corey Crawford is now unbeaten in regulation his last 11 games after stopped 27 of 28 shots in a 4-1 victory over Minnesota on Sunday night.

Crawford, who has a 9-0-2 record during that span, has allowed two goals or less in each of his last five games. The red-hot goaltender improves to 16-7-2 this season with a 2.11 goals-against average and .935 save percentage.

Brock Boeser left Sunday's game against Calgary with a foot injury.

Boeser took a snapshot off the foot and could not put any weight on it afterwards. He crawled to the bench and was ruled out for the rest of the game. Hopefully, the injury to the talented rookie isn't severe because the Canucks are already missing Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi due to long-term injuries.

Alex Stalock allowed three goals on 45 shots in the Wild's 4-1 loss to Chicago on Sunday night.

It was a tough weekend for the 30-year-old, who lost to both Edmonton and Chicago. Nonetheless, the Wild were outmatched on Sunday and Stalock is still a good fantasy option until Devan Dubnyk returns. He is 5-5-1 this season with a 2.69 goals against average and .917 save percentage.
