Bo Horvat scored once and added a helper in the Canucks 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Horvat is having a solid season for Vancouver as he has 16 goals and 32 points in 36 games this season. The talented center has made everyone forget that the Canucks dealt Cory Schneider to New Jersey for their ninth pick which they used to take Horvat in 2013. He is a keeper.

Tomas Hertl scored once and added an assist Sunday.

Hertl has 10 goals and 25 points in 29 games this season as he has moved to the middle between Melker Karlsson and Evander Kane. He should be in your lineup.

Evander Kane had a goal and an assist Sunday.

It was his 10th goal of the season as well as 20th point in 34 games. He has 63 penalty minutes and is one of the best power forwards in fantasy hockey although his minus-nine rating leaves a lot to be desired.

Aaron Dell stopped all 16 shots for the win as he came on in relief of Martin Jones in the Sharks 7-3 win over Chicago.

Jones gave up all three goals on only four shots before coach Peter DeBoer had had enough and made the switch. It was the fifth win of the season for Dell who sees his record move to 5-4-2 with a 2.69 GAA and a .906 save percentage.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been getting scoring from their bottom-six scorers of late.

The Penguins got 11 goals from Bryan Rust, Zach Aston-Reese, Derick Brassard, Riley Sheahan, Derek Grant and Matt Cullen in total in their first 25 games but have 11 goals from the same sextet in the last seven contests. Rust has been hot with five points in his last three contests. "I’ve always been a believer that Rusty brings more than just his numbers suggest," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He’s an important part of our team. He’s a good penalty killer. He’s a great puck-pursuit guy. He’s a good two-way player. We can move him up and down the lineup and utilize him in so many ways. Obviously we’d like to see him chip in offensively for us and that’s part of the expectations when you have success like he’s had over the last couple years. I know it’s never from a lack of effort on Rusty’s part. He’s a tryer." Rust has 12 points this season.

There have been rumors swirling around the NHL that Joel Quenneville will be named the new coach of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Dave Hakstol is still the head coach of the Flyers and the rumors suggested he would be fired and replaced by Quenneville but all the rumors have been denied at this time. A lot of times where there is smoke there is fire so stay tuned. Quenneville last coached last month for the Blackhawks and was canned after 10 years in the Windy City.

Milan Lucic recorded nine hits Sunday.

That's a big total for the big forward who has only one goal and seven points in 34 games and has not found the back of the net since opening night. "His value system had to change," coach Ken Hitchcock said of Lucic. "At the end of the day, it’s how you impact the game. He and (Adam) Larsson eat up heavy, hard minutes. Looch is out there against top players. Larsson is the same thing. they eat up such huge minutes at critical times, you need those guys. But their value system has to change. They have to focus on who they’re pushing out of the game, who they’re playing against rather than how many points they’re getting."

Despite only three points in 23 games, coach Ken Hitchcock is encouraged by Jesse Puljujarvi's game.

Puljujarvi looks to be struggling in his third NHL season but Hitchcock sees plenty of upside in his game. "His speed and quickness as a checker is going to allow him to create offence," said HItchcock. "He had six scoring chances (in the Philadelphia) game strictly based on checking. In a month, those are going to start going in but I love the way the guy plays the game without the puck." Puljujarvi, who was picked fourth overall in 2016 is worth a pickup and a stash in deep leagues at this time.

Despite only three points in 23 games this season, Jesse Puljujarvi is progressing according to coach Ken Hitchcock.

The offense has been non-existent but Puljujarvi is establishing himself as an NHLer according to Hitchcock. "His speed and quickness as a checker is going to allow him to create offence," said Hitchcock. "He had six scoring chances (in the Philadelphia) game strictly based on checking. In a month, those are going to start going in but I love the way the guy plays the game without the puck." Chances are that Puljujarvi is available in your league and he is worth taking a chance on while leaving him on your bench at this time in deep leagues.

Warren Foegele scored his fourth of the season Sunday.

The goal snapped a 27-game goalless streak for the rookie who had three goals in his first four games and then went into the prolonged slump. It was also his first point in 25 contests as Foegele finally added to his points total. He has no fantasy value at this time.

Elias Lindholm scored once and added two assists in the Flames' 7-2 win Sunday.

It was another big game for the former Hurricane who has tied his seasonal mark in goals with 17 and has 20 assists in 34 games. He snapped a three-game pointless streak in style with a shorthanded goal and has been a revelation this season in fantasy leagues. He is a must-start.

The goals were Quine's second and third of season. The former Islander has four points in five games with the Flames after his recall from the minors on December 8.

Defenseman Mark Giordano deserves to be in the thick of things when it comes to the 2019 Norris Trophy.

Giordano scored again on Sunday as he has found the back of the net in three straight games, as well as chipping in with an assist. He has six goals and 35 points in 31 games. Don Cherry of Hockey Night in Canada was raving about him Saturday night. "I don’t understand why this guy is not mentioned," Cherry said. "He does everything. He scores goals. He fights. He blocks shots...He does everything, and he is never ever mentioned. I don’t understand it. He is a tough guy. They’re lucky to have him." Giordano is a must-start.

Look for Chad Johnson to make his Anaheim debut Tuesday when the Ducks face the Rangers in New York.

It will be the second half of back-to-back games for the Ducks who are in Pittsburgh Monday to start the road trip. Johnson was claimed off waivers from St. Louis Tuesday as backup Ryan Miller is out for another five weeks. He was 2-6-0 with a 3.54 GAA and a .884 save percentage for a mediocre St. Louis team this season.
Dec 17 - 5:51 AM

Mikko Koskinen allowed three goals on 29 shots in Sunday’s 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Koskinen was in fact perfect at even-strength tonight, getting beat three times on Vancouver power plays while Bo Horvat put one into an empty-net. The loss breaks a three-game winning streak for Koskinen, dropping his record to 11-4-1 with a 2.18 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage.
