Ryan Miller stopped 24 of 25 shots in Vancouver's 4-1 win over Chicago on Sunday night.

The game was tied at one heading into the third period when Vancouver exploded for three goals. Miller has now won three of his last four starts for Vancouver. The 34-year-old has a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage. Despite the modest numbers, Miller is the uncontested number one goalie in Vancouver.

Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 29 shots in Chicago's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.

The loss snaps Crawford's personal three-game winning streak. Canucks' forward Jannik Hansen got the better of Crawford tonight, as he beat him twice (and added an empty netter). Crawford is 9-5-1 with a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage.

Jannik Hansen scored a hat trick in Vancouver's 4-1 win over Chicago on Sunday.

The 28-year-old had five goals in 20 games coming into this one, so the hat trick was a little unexpected. Hansen opened the scoring in the first period, and then gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead in the third before scoring an empty netter to ice the game. He has scored five of his eight goals in his last three games. Hansen was the game's first star. Radim Vrbata scored the other goal for Vancouver.
Nov 24 - 12:27 AM

Kris Versteeg scored Chicago's only goal in their 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday night.

Versteeg tied the game at one in the second period before the Canucks exploded offensively in the third period. The 28-year-old has collected a point in each of his last four games. He has seven goals and 14 points in 17 games this season. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook collected the assists on Versteeg's goal.

Canadiens prospect Nikita Scherbak was taken off on a stretcher during a WHL game on Saturday, but he seems to have avoided serious injury.

Scherbak was reportedly injured on a legal hit into the boards. He was taken to hospital but was discharged later on that night. Tests showed that the Everett Silvertips' forward did not suffer any major injuries. He will undergo more tests on Monday. Scherbak was the Habs' first round pick in last June's NHL entry draft.

The Colorado Avalanche recalled Paul Carey from the minors.

The 26-year-old was pointless in 12 games with the Avalanche last season. Carey was Colorado's fifth round pick out of Boston College in 2007.
Nov 23 - 11:05 PM

Frederik Andersen made 26 saves on 27 shots in Anaheim's 2-1 win over Arizona.

Andersen has now won back-to-back starts for the first time this month. After winning his first six starts this season, Andersen has come back down to earth a little bit but his numbers are still solid. Keith Yandle was the only Coyote who was able to beat Andersen tonight. The 25-year-old is 9-2-4 with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage. He will continue to be a strong play in fantasy leagues.
Nov 23 - 10:55 PM

Mike Smith stopped 28 of 30 shots but Arizona still lost 2-1 to the Anaheim Ducks.

Smith can't buy a win right now. The 32-year-old hasn't won a game in his last six starts. He now falls to 4-11-1 on the season. Smith has a 3.22 goals-against-average to go along with a .893 save percentage. If Smith can't turn things around, the Coyotes may be forced to sit him for a couple of games.

Keith Yandle scored a goal in Arizona’s 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

Martin Erat set up Yandle for a quick one-timer that beat Ducks’ goaltender Frederik Andersen. Yandle continues to be one of the more underrated players in the NHL. The 28-year-old has three goals and 15 points in 22 games this season. He has been a 40 to 60 point producer since 2009-2010, and that shouldn’t change this year.
Nov 23 - 10:41 PM

Patrick Maroon scored a goal and an assist in Anaheim’s 2-1 win over Arizona.

The goal was Maroon’s first of the season. The 26-year-old picked up a rebound in front of the net and buried it by Coyotes’ goaltender Mike Smith. Maroon also picked up an assist on Kyle Palmieri’s first period goal. He now has eight points in 14 games this season. He doesn’t have much (if any) fantasy value. Ryan Kesler assisted on both Anaheim goals in the game.
Nov 23 - 10:40 PM

Dustin Tokarski allowed five goals on 34 shots in Montreal's 5-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Even though his numbers weren't pretty, this loss wasn't Tokarski's fault. The Habs came out with no emotion in the second game of their back-to-back this weekend. It's the first time this season that Tokarski has allowed more than two goals in a start (he allowed three in a relief appearance vs. Tampa Bay). The 25-year-old has been solid for Montreal, but he has no fantasy value because he's stuck behind Carey Price. Tokarski is 3-2-0 with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage. He would only be worth owning if Price went down to injury.
Nov 23 - 9:55 PM

Henrik Lundqvist made 21 saves in New York's 5-0 win over Montreal on Sunday.

The win snaps Lundqvist's three games winless streak. The 32-year-old has been up and down this year but he had a vintage performance on Sunday. He is 8-5-3 with a 2.51 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage. Even though his numbers aren't where we are used to seeing them, he is still a solid play in fantasy.
Nov 23 - 9:51 PM

Montreal's first line of Max Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau had a rough night in Montreal's 5-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

The trio were a combined minus-9 on the night. They line only managed four shots on goal. The Canadiens played (and won) in Boston last night but they seemed to have no gas left in the tank to face the Rangers tonight. The Habs are still at the top of the Eastern Conference with 33 points.
Nov 23 - 9:47 PM

Martin St. Louis scored a goal and an assist in the Rangers' 5-0 beat down of the Canadiens.

St. Louis assisted Derek Stepan's second period goal and he also netted his own goal in the second frame. The two points were the 997th and 998th of St. Louis' career. The Rangers next game is in Tampa Bay on Wednesday, so St. Louis has an opportunity to collect his 1000th point against his former team. The Rangers just dominated the Habs tonight. Dominic Moore, Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin and Rick Nash scored the other goals for New York.
