Jonathan Quick kicked away 21 shots in the Kings’ 3-1 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Quick allowed a goal at 2:39 of the first period and that was it. He has helped the Kings earn at least a point in four straight games. Overall, he is 15-8-6 with a 2.30 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.
Dec 28 - 1:06 AM

Anze Kopitar registered two points in the Kings’ 3-1 win over the Sharks on Saturday night.

Kopitar, who got a goal and an assist, would only be quiet for so long. The Kings captain is scorching hot with points in five straight games, and 12 points during that timeframe. He's got one more December game left, but thus far he has a cool 13 points in 11 games, which is more in line with what we’d expect from his production. He has eight goals and 25 points on the year. Jake Muzzin and Tyler Toffoli got the other markers.
Dec 28 - 1:05 AM

Joe Pavelski potted the only goal for the Sharks in their 3-1 setback to the Kings on Saturday night.

Pavelski broke out as an elite point producer last season and it’s continuing now, at age 30. He has 17 goals and 30 points on the season and should continue to be a major asset in fantasy leagues. His 129 shots on goal rank fifth in the league. Joe Thornton got the helper, his 23rd assist.
Dec 28 - 1:03 AM

Antti Niemi made 26 saves in San Jose’s 3-1 loss to the Kings on Saturday night.

Niemi gave up two of the goals while the Sharks were on the penalty kill. The regulation loss ends an eight-game streak of earning the Sharks at least a point. Niemi has a 2.47 goals-against average and .916 save percentage on the year.
Dec 28 - 1:02 AM

Jonas Hiller made 26 saves in the Flames’ 4-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

The lone blemish against Hiller came in the third period. Hiller has won two straight games and has become the most reliable guy in net for Calgary. He has a 2.34 goals-against average and .917 save percentage this season.
Dec 28 - 12:56 AM

Johnny Gaudreau netted two goals for the Flames in their 4-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

With all the talk that the rookie race is two-headed with Filip Forsberg and Aaron Ekblad, Gaudreau continues to impress and should be in the discussion, too. He has goals in three straight games: 12 goals and 29 points on the season. Curtis Glencross (goal, assist) and Joe Colborne got the other goals.
Dec 28 - 12:56 AM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the lone goal for the Oilers in their 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

Nugent-Hopkins has points in four of his last five games. One wonders how much better he’d be on a more stable team, too. He has 10 goals and 23 points. Justin Schultz and Andrew Ference chipped in with the helpers. Brad Hunt finished a game-low minus-three.
Dec 28 - 12:55 AM

Viktor Fasth lasted 8:48 in the Oilers’ 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

Fasth gave up three goals on six shots, and he hasn’t won since Nov. 9. Suffice to say, Fasth has been brutal this season with a 3.50 goals-against average and .881 save percentage. In relief, Ben Scrivens stopped 20 of 21 shots. He sports a 3.16 GAA and .892 SV%.
Dec 28 - 12:54 AM

Kris Letang left late in the Penguins’ game Saturday night against the Capitals.

Letang was drilled with an Alex Ovechkin check in the third period, but he stayed in the game. Then he was hit with Ovechkin’s shot later in the frame and left without putting much weight on his right leg. Letang played 23:56, had four penalty minutes, three shots on goal and six hits in the 3-0 loss.
Dec 27 - 11:59 PM

Patrick Kane tallied three points in the Blackhawks’ 5-2 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Kane scored twice — one via the empty net — and added an assist. As if his young career wasn’t already impressive enough, Kane is setting himself up for his best season yet. He has 18 goals and 39 points this season, so he could top 40 goals for the first time, and it shouldn't surprise anyone as he is as talented as they come. Brent Seabrook, Patrick Sharp and Brandon Saad also got goals in the win. Jonathan Toews chipped in with two assists.

Corey Crawford made 23 saves in Chicago’s 5-2 win over Colorado on Saturday night.

Crawford gave up the game’s first goal in the first and another one about two minutes later and that was it. He has helped the Blackhawks earn at least a point in five of his last six outings. He has a 2.00 goals-against average and .923 save percentage this season.
Dec 27 - 11:50 PM

Nathan MacKinnon netted a goal for the Avalanche, but they still lost 5-2 to the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

MacKinnon also had two penalty minutes and four shots on goal in 15:41. Immediate stardom was expected for the 19-year-old after his impressive 24-goal, 63-point rookie season. However, MacKinnon has found out life in the NHL isn’t that easy. He has six goals and 22 points, though, so it’s not like he hasn’t been a factor. Erik Johnson also scored.
