Jaroslav Halak was pulled in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Halak was yanked after allowing four goals on 20 shots in just under 30 minutes of action. He was eventually replaced by Thomas Greiss, who gave up one goal on seven shots he faced. Halak now has a 9-8-1 record with a 2.97 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage this season. The Islanders netminder has dropped three of his last four games.
Dec 13 - 11:36 PM

Kari Lehtonen allowed two goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Tonight's start allowed Lehtonen to pass Miikka Kiprusoff for most games played by a Finnish goaltender with 624. The Stars netminder reached another milestone tonight, as he came away with the 300th victory of his NHL career. Lehtonen has now won two games in a row and three of his last four. He's also given up two goals or less in each of his last five outings. He has a 5-4-1 record with a 2.44 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage this season.
Dec 13 - 11:33 PM

Anders Lee scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

The Islanders were trailing 4-0 in the third period when Lee scored two goals in just over 15 minutes. Unfortunately for the Islanders, that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Lee is putting together an incredible season so far, as he's already scored 19 goals and 32 points in 31 games. He's currently on pace to hit the 50-goal mark for the first time in his career.
Dec 13 - 11:16 PM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Benn picked up assists on both of Tyler Pitlick's goals. He also added a tally of his own in the second period to give the Stars a 4-0 lead at the time. Benn finished the game with a plus-3 rating, one shot on goal and three hits in 17:33 of ice time. The Stars forward now has eight points in his last seven contests. He's up to 13 goals and 29 points in 32 games this season.
Dec 13 - 11:09 PM

Henrik Lundqvist allowed three goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The Rangers managed to tie the game at one after allowing the first goal, but they were never able to get a lead on the struggling Sens. Lundqvist has now dropped two of his last three games. He has a 14-8-2 record with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season.
Dec 13 - 10:57 PM

Craig Anderson stopped 27 of 29 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Finally, Ottawa was able to put a stop to their five-game losing skid. The victory also snaps Anderson's personal seven-game slide. Prior to tonight's win, the Senators goaltender hadn't won a game since Nov. 11. He now owns an 8-10-3 record with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage this season. Despite the win, it's still tough to trust him as a stable fantasy option right now.
Dec 13 - 10:54 PM

Michael Grabner scored a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Mats Zuccarello fed Grabner with a beautiful pass to set up the Rangers' first goal of the night (Grabner beat Erik Karlsson to the net on the play). The 30-year-old continues to produce this season, as he's up to 15 goals and two assists in 31 games. That puts him on pace to find the back of the net exactly 40 times. That's unlikely to happen, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that he's been productive this year. Pavel Buchnevich also scored for the Rangers.
Dec 13 - 10:43 PM

Bobby Ryan scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Ryan opened the scoring at the 4:01 mark of the first period before helping set up Cody Ceci's second-period goal that gave the Sens a 2-1 advantage. He finished the night with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 16:19 of ice time. Ryan now has two goals and 11 points in 22 games this season.
Dec 13 - 10:36 PM

Ryan Johansen will play in Wednesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Johansen has missed the last three games because of an upper-body, but he's good to go tonight. He's skating on a line with Nick Bonino and Viktor Arvidsson.
Dec 13 - 9:58 PM

Pekka Rinne will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

He has a 16-4-3 record with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage this season. He's coming off a 4-3 shootout loss to Vegas on Friday night.
Dec 13 - 9:54 PM

Alexander Radulov suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday's game against the Islanders.

Radulov had just over 14 minutes of ice time before going out of the game and not coming back. The Russian winger did manage to score a goal before exiting. He's considered day-to-day at this point. The Stars will likely provide an update on his status in the next day or so.
Dec 13 - 9:52 PM

Jimmy Howard is expected to get the start in Wednesday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Howard has a 9-9-5 record with a 2.90 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.

Alex Burrows will serve as a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Burrows hasn't played well this season and it looks like it will finally cost him his spot in the lineup. The veteran has just three goals and three assists in 29 games this season. He hasn't scored in 15 games and he has just one point during that stretch. Nick Paul will take his spot in the lineup.
