Martin Jones stopped 36 of 40 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Jones made a few nice stops but he continues to struggle overall in goal. He has a 1-2-2 record over his last five starts, allowing 21 goals over that stretch. The 27-year-old goaltender just hasn't looked the same since he missed one game due to a lower-body injury at the end of November. San Jose's starting goaltender is sporting a 11-7-3 record with a 2.55 goals against average and .914 save percentage.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks.

It was a solid performance by Markstrom who capped it off with his second assist of the season on Sam Gagner's overtime winner with just 26 seconds remaining in the extra period. Markstrom has now won three of his last five starts, and is now sporting a 9-10-3 record with a 2.57 goals against average and .912 save percentage.

Brent Burns scored two goals in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Burns let one go through traffic on the power play and his shot found a way in behind Jacob Markstrom to tie up the game midway through the first period. Burns' third period tally with less than six minutes remaining sent the game to overtime. The 32-year-old blueliner now has six goals and 20 points in 31 games this season, eight points in his last five games. Marcus Sorensen scored his first goal of the season in the loss.

Both Henrik and Daniel Sedin picked up three assists each in a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks.

The twins picked up a pair of assists on both on Markus Granlund's goals, and then another pair of assists on Brock Boeser's 17th goal of the season. Henrik Sedin is now up to 22 points in 33 games this season, with 15 of them coming in his last 13 games. He's well worth picking up in fantasy leagues if his slow start put him on your waiver wire.

Henrik Zetterberg picked up a pair of assists in Friday's 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Zetterberg registered primary assists on Danny Dekeyser's goal in the second period that tied the game at one and on Tomas Tatar's power play goal in the third frame to make 3-1. The Red Wings captain finished the night with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal and two hits in 17:59 of ice time. The 37-year-old now has five goals and 15 points in 32 games. He's currently riding a three-game point streak. Trevor Daley scored the game-winning goal (shorthanded) for Detroit.

The Arizona Coyotes recalled Nick Merkley from the AHL on Friday.

He wasn't able to participate in Coyotes training camp because he was out with a torn ACL, but he's healthy and ready to prove himself now. The 20-year-old was selected in the first round, 30th overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Merkley has never played in an NHL game, but he's been ripping it up in the AHL this season. He currently has 12 goals and 12 assists in 20 AHL games. It'll be interesting to see if the rebuilding Coyotes give him a real shot to stick with the club.
Dec 15 - 11:11 PM

Curtis McElhinney allowed three goals on 29 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Toronto's Andreas Borgman scored the game's first goal less than two minutes into the opening period, but that was the only offense the Leafs could muster in this one. McElhinney allows a power play goal, a shorthanded goal and one at even-strength. He has a 3-3-0 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season. McElhinney is nothing more than an average NHL backup goalie that doesn't need to be owned in fantasy.
Dec 15 - 11:06 PM

Jimmy Howard stopped 25 of 26 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was just Howard's second victory in his last 11 games. The win also put an end to his three-game losing streak. Howard gave up the game's first goal less than two minutes into the opening period, but he managed to shut the door the rest of the way. The Red Wings goalie now owns a 10-9-6 record with a 2.83 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season. He can't really be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.
Dec 15 - 11:02 PM

Andreas Borgman found the back of the net in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Borgman opened the scoring with his tally at the 1:58 mark of the first period, but that's all the offense the Leafs could create in this one. They've now combined to score one goal in their last two games (they lost 2-0 to Minnesota last night). It's important to remember that they're currently missing their best player, Auston Matthews. As for Borgman, he now has three goals and five assists in 32 games this season.
Dec 15 - 11:00 PM

Chad Johnson allowed five goals on 34 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Sabres held a 2-1 lead very early in the third period, but they watched as Carolina scored the next three goals. Thanks to Jack Eichel's two goals, Buffalo was able to tie the game at four before eventually losing in overtime. Johnson now owns a 1-5-3 record with a 3.76 goals-against-average and a .880 save percentage this season. He hasn't won a game since Oct. 15.
Dec 15 - 10:51 PM

Cam Ward allowed four goals on 41 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres.

The Hurricanes had a 4-2 lead in the third period, but they allowed Jack Eichel to score two goals in 10 seconds to force overtime. In the extra frame, defenseman Jaccob Slavin picked up the game-winning goal for Carolina. The win improves Ward's record to 6-2-1 on the season. He hasn't lost a game in regulation since Nov. 2. He'll enter his next appearance with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.
Dec 15 - 10:49 PM

Jack Eichel scored a hat trick in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Eichel's first goal tied the game at one midway through the second period. With the Sabres trailing 4-2 in the third period, Eichel scored back-to-back goals in 10 seconds to tie the game at four. Unfortunately for the Sabres, they allowed Hurricanes defenseman Jaccob Slavin to score the game-winning goal in the extra frame. Eichel has 11 goals and 28 points in 33 games this season. He now has nine points in his last seven contests.
Dec 15 - 10:46 PM

Jaccob Slavin scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Slavin registered the primary assist on Jordan Staal's game-tying goal (2-2) early in the third period. He then beat Sabres goalie Chad Johnson with a wrister from the slot in the extra frame to give his team the win. Slavin finished the night with a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in 24:19 of ice time. Tonight's offensive production put an end to Slavin's 12-game pointless drought. He now has three goals and eight assists in 31 games this season. Justin Williams, Derek Ryan and Elias Lindholm also scored for the 'Canes in the win.
Dec 15 - 10:43 PM

Kari Lehtonen allowed four goals on 25 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The Stars managed to tie the game at one in the first period and at two in the second period, but they couldn't stop the Devils from pulling away. It's the first time in six games that Lehtonen has given up more than three goals. He has a 5-5-1 record with a 2.59 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.
Dec 15 - 10:24 PM

Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 30 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

One of the two goals Dallas scored came while they were on the power play, while the other came at even-strength. Schneider has just one regulation loss in his last six games (4-1-1). He currently owns a 13-6-4 record with a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season. This was a pretty good performance from a guy who was playing his second game in two nights.
