Minnesota's second line comprised of Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker has been incredible this season.

Since November 25th, a span of 39 games, the unit has scored a combined 43 goals and registered 110 points while recording an unbelievable plus-84 rating. That is utter dominance. Needless to say, Koivu, Granlund and Zucker should be rostered in any hockey pool regardless of format.

Adam Cracknell might be lost to the Stars from 3-6 weeks due to lower-body injury.

He had to be helped from the ice in Saturday night's 4-3 win over Tampa. Dallas coach Lindy Ruff suggested that the injury was rather serious. If for some you have Cracknell in your lineup, reserve and replace him immediately.

Calvin Pickard will likely get the start Sunday night against the Lightning.

He is coming off a 2-1 OT win over the Hurricanes in which he stopped 28 shots. Pickard has started four out of the Avs' five games on the team's current road trip and there is no reason to believe that coach Jared Bednar won't ride him for the balance of the season.

Vince Hinostroza was recalled from Rockford of the AHL Sunday morning.

He will be available for Sunday's contest against Buffalo. Hinostroza has had a number of decent moments in the NHL this season with 14 points in 46 games. That said, the 22-year-old is not a fantasy factor at this time.

Look for Scott Darling to start in goal against the Sabres Sunday evening.

Corey Crawford allowed two goals on 20 shots in the Blackhawks' 3-1 loss to Edmonton Saturday night, so Chicago coach Joel Quenneville will likely opt to start Darling on a short-turnaround game. Darling is coming off a 5-1 win over the Oilers last Saturday and sports a very fine 13-5-2 record for the season.

There is a good chance that Curtis McElhinney will get the start Sunday evening against the Hurricanes.

Frederik Andersen started and lost to the Senators Saturday and Toronto coach Mike Babcock may want to give him the night off. Stay tuned throughout the afternoon to see if McElhinney's start gets confirmed.
Feb 19 - 10:57 AM

Cory Conacher has been reassigned to Syracuse of the AHL.

He was not needed in Saturday night's game as Jonathan Drouin had sufficiently recovered from the flu and was able to suit up. We're sure we will see Conacher again the next time a Tampa Bay player is injured or under the weather.
Feb 19 - 10:47 AM

Jonathan Drouin was in fact in the Tampa lineup Saturday against Dallas and will play Sunday agianst the Avalanche.

He seems to have recovered from the flu. Make sure Drouin is active.
Feb 19 - 10:45 AM

Ben Bishop will probable get the start against the Avalanche Sunday against Colorado.

Andrei Vasilevskiy started and lost to the Stars 4-3 Saturday night, so it's likely Bishop's turn to protect the Bolts' cage Sunday against the Avs. Bishop has been hot of late winning three games in a row. We would start him against the success-challenged Avs. Stay tuned for confirmation.
Feb 19 - 10:37 AM

Although Bobby Ryan toughed out Saturday night's game against Toronto he was by no means 100%.

Ryan was still dealing with the flu and only had 12:11 of ice time. He was minus-1 and had no points in the Senators' 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs. Ryan may not be the best start Sunday against the Jets.
Feb 19 - 10:29 AM

Mike Condon will get the start against the Jets Sunday afternoon.

Craig Anderson got the start and the victroy against the Maple Leafs Saturday night, so it's Condon's turn to guard the net Sunday. Condon is coming off a shutout win over the Devils on Thursday and has a very impressive 17-9-5 record for the season.

Shea Weber has been slumping terribly much like the rest of his teammates.

Since going plus-17 in the Canadiens' first 15 games, Weber is now a minus-12. In his past eight games, Weber has only one point and has registered a minus-7 rating. That's not what the Habs were expecting when they acquired him from the Predators for P.K. Subban. Hopefully, new Montreal coach Claude Julien can coax better performances out of Weber going forward.
Feb 19 - 10:11 AM

Alexander Radulov, who has been one of the Canadiens' best players this season, did not perform very well in Claude Julien's debut as Montreal's head coach against Winnipeg on Saturday.

Radulov didn't even direct a shot towards the Jets' goal, let alone get one on net. He was not alone. Max Pacioretty didn't have a shot either, Shea Weber had a game to forget and Alex Galchenyuk after registering an assist on the Habs' only goal, was ineffective and demoted to the third line. Montreal may need a few games under Julien before they start clicking again.

With his assist Saturday night, Vincent Trochek has now registered a helper in five consecutive games.

Trochek has registered seven points over those five games and is settling in once again as one of the NHL's most effective but underrated second-line centers.
Feb 19 - 9:47 AM

The Panthers top line featuring Aleksander Barkov, Jaromir Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau has been on fire since it was reunited on February 3rd.

In the six games since Barkov and Huberdeau returned from injury, the unit has scored 11 goals and registered 21 points. No line in the NHL is hotter than this one at the moment.
