According to a report out of Pittsburgh, Christian Ehrhoff's concussion-like symptoms have returned.

"I had a little bump in the road," Ehrhoff said. "I felt great Wednesday coming back and the next day, too. But I had some symptoms again, and we're being cautious with that. I've been seeing the doctors. It was a relapsse of the symptoms Ehrhoff who was sidelined for 13 of the last 14 games for Pittsburgh. Ehrhoff was scheduled to travel with the team Tuesday for the game tonight against Colorado in Denver but that seems unlikely now. We will pass along more information when it comes but be prepared to have him out of the lineup for a little while longer at least.

Eddie Lack stopped 23-of-24 shots in relief action in the Canucks' 6-2 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Lack shut the door nicely for the Canucks who got just one save in four shots from start Jacob Markstrom before giving way. So much for giving Lack a rest as this was going to be a game off for him but it turned out that he got less than eight minutes off in total. Lack should get a ton more starts before the season is over thanks to the injury to Ryan Miller. He is 8-8-2 with a 2.58 GAA and .915 save percentage in 24 appearances this season and is a nice start on most nights.

Henrik Sedin became the third fastest Swedish born NHL player to crack the 900 point mark with two goals in a 5-2 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Henrik Sedin has been racking up points during an eight game streak. He has five goals and 13 total points over the stretch for the injury riddled Canucks. Henrik's 44 assists rank third overall in the NHL and his 59 points in 64 games is good for 19th in the league. Brother Daniel picked up two assists in the loss and now has 56 points in his own right this year. It has been a really nice bounce-back year for the Sedins, who some people thought were on the wrong side of their careers after last season's dreadful campaign. Start them in all formats confidently.

Antti Niemi turned aside 26-of-28 shots in 6-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

There has been a lot of talk about Niemi being shipped out of town at the trade deadline or in the offseason but he didn't let any of that bother him on this night. The win broke a three game win-less streak of starts for Niemi. Niemi's 2.64 goals-against-average is below average for number a goalie though that is likely why he will lose starts to the younger Alex Stalock down the stretch.

Matt Nieto scored twice and added an assist in a 6-2 win over San Jose on Tuesday.

The goals were Nieto's fifth and sixth of the season. The 22 year-old is going to be hard pressed to eclipse his 10 goals from his rookie season last year but could with a hot streak. Logan Couture, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Chris Tierney and Melker Karlsson all got in on the scoring fun in Vancouver. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau each contributed two assists in a game that was actually closer than the final score indicated.

Teddy Purcell scored his ninth of the year in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

It was Purcell's second goal in four games and third in six games as he is on a modest hot streak here. It is hard to find too much value on a Edmonton team that doesn't score a lot but Purcell has done what he can with nine goals and 26 points in 64 games this season.
Mar 4 - 12:57 AM

Ben Scrivens allowed five goals on 29 shots in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

It was another tough night for Scrivens again as he was not surprisingly hung out to dry a few times in this game. His 21 losses, 2.97 goals-against-average and .896 save percentage rank amongst the worst in league and you aren't going to want to start him in any format for the rest of the season.
Mar 4 - 12:57 AM

Anze Kopitar lead the way for the Kings with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Kopitar was seemingly all over the ice in this game and his two assists were true artistry in hockey fashion. He added five shots and was a plus-three on the evening. He has 48 points in 60 games this season. Trevor Lewis also added a goal and two assists while Drew Doughty had two assists in the blow out win. Jeff Carter scored his team leading 21st goal shorthanded.
Mar 4 - 12:39 AM

Jonathan Quick stopped 21-of-23 shots for the Kings in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Quick wasn't overly busy in this one and didn't have to be as the Kings scored five goals in support to help him win his 26th win. The win snapped his personal two game losing streak. He has been a little up and down this year but he still has 26 wins and a solid 2.34 goal-against-average in 54 appearances this year. Start with confidence as he usually gets better as the season grows older.
Mar 4 - 12:39 AM

Tobias Rieder was the only Coyote to find the back of the net in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

The 22 year-old has 9 goals and 15 points in 54 games during his first season in the NHL. He is a nice prospect on a rebuilding Arizona team. Sam Gagner and Marco Arcobello added assist on the lone goal. He could be a guy to keep an eye on later on in his career.
Mar 4 - 12:21 AM

Mike Smith kicked aside 31-of-34 shots in 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

The nightmare season continues for Smith who has just 10 wins and a league leading 31 loses in 47 appearances this season. He has allowed 3 goals or more in three of his last five starts and can't be trusted with this rebuilding team in front of him.
Mar 4 - 12:21 AM

Frederik Andersen allowed just one goal on 30 shots in a 4-1 Anaheim win over Arizona on Tuesday.

Making his first start since getting injured back on Feb. 8, it was an almost flawless effort from the Ducks' number one goalie. Arizona was obviously a great team to get him back in the flow of the NHL game. With the Ducks in a close race with Nashville for the President's trophy you have to think the Ducks will ride him hard down the stretch. He is 30-8-5 with a 2.34 goals-against-average and .917 save percentage in 45 appearances this season.
Mar 4 - 12:03 AM

Jakob Silfverberg scored once and added two assists in Anaheim's 4-1 win over Arizona on Tuesday.

Silfverberg was also a plus-3 on the night and added two shots in the Ducks win. The 22 year-old has 10 goals and 20 assists in 64 games this season. Andrew Cogliano scored twice and Ryan Kesler added the other goal for the Ducks. It was a nice day for the secondary scoring for the Ducks who got nothing from the top line.
Mar 4 - 12:03 AM

Josh Bailey recorded his 13th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.

Bailey has been a very consistent scorer for the Islanders this season if we ignore the first two months of the campaign. Now that he has settled into his depth role, he has delivered enough production to make him roster-worthy in deeper formats. Anders Lee also scored the New York in the loss.
Mar 3 - 11:55 PM

Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 35 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas.

The Islanders number one netminder remains stuck on 33 wins, but has experienced quite an impressive season in his first campaign on Long Island. His 2.47 GAA and .911 save percentage are strong enough to provide value when paired with those victories.
