Anders Nilsson allowed two goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Nilsson gave up two goals in the first period, but he was able to keep the Jackets off the board the rest of the way (the third goal was scored into an empty net). Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to get his team the victory tonight. Nilsson has now dropped three of his last four decisions. He has a 10-10-4 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage this season.

Jimmy Howard stopped 28 of 32 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

A tough task for any goaltender playing behind a team on their third game in as many nights. Howard faced a steady dose of shots and saw his team be outshot 22-9 after two periods. The Hurricanes jumped out to a 3-0 lead and the Red Wings didn't have enough gas to get back into it. The loss drops Howard's record to 9-9-1 on the year with a 2.02 goals against average and a .932 save percentage.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 41 of 42 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

His dominant stretch continues. Bobrovsky turned aside all 38 shots he faced at even-strength, but he allowed a power play goal to Evan Rodrigues in the second frame. Bobrovsky's now won nine of his last 10 decisions and he hasn't suffered a defeat in regulation since Feb. 19. He'll enter his next appearance with41-13-5 record, a 1.97 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage.

Cam Ward stopped 21 of 22 shots in a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Ward always had the upper-hand going into this one with the Red Wings playing their third game in as many nights. He has now not suffered a regulation loss in his last seven starts, going 4-0-3 during that stretch. The win improves his record to 25-20-11 on the year with a 2.69 goals against average and .905 save percentage.

Evan Rodrigues scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Rodrigues cut his team's deficit to 2-1 midway through the second period, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Ryan O'Reilly and Jake McCabe picked up the assists on Buffalo's only goal. Rodrigues now has four goals and two assists in 25 games. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy league.

Tomas Nosek scored his first career NHL goal in a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

On the back-end of their third game in as many nights, the Red Wings looked gassed and could only put one passed Cam Ward. It took Nosek 10 career games to score his first goal and record his first point. He has some offensive upside but shouldn't be on any fantasy radars for at least another couple of years. Ben Street and Drew Miller picked up the assists on Nosek's goal.

Sam Reinhart was benched by coach Dan Bylsma on Tuesday against Columbus for violating a team rule.

Hopefully, this will only amount to a one-time punishment. He didn't play for the entire game, but he was in uniform on the bench. It's strange that he wasn't just scratched, so that Buffalo could play someone in his place.
Mar 28 - 9:55 PM

Cam Atkinson scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Atkinson's goal gave the Jackets a 2-0 lead late in the first period. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in 18:06 of ice time. Atkinson now has 34 goals and 61 points in 75 games. Kyle Quincey and Brandon Saad also scored for Columbus.
Mar 28 - 9:53 PM

Justin Faulk picked up a couple of helpers in a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Faulk picked up his first assist on Lee Stempniak's opening goal of the game and then picked up his second on Elias Lindholm's power play marker. Faulk finished the home and home against Detroit with two goals and two assists. He is now up to 35 points in 68 games this season for the Hurricanes. With Jaccob Slavin's emergence in Carolina, Faulk has seen his ice time drop slightly and his point total as well. As always, Faulk continues to bring points to your fantasy lineup but hurts your plus/minus.
Mar 28 - 9:51 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will indeed face the Sharks on Tuesday.

He owns a 30-18-2 record with a 2.70 GAA and .912 save percentage, and is a strong bounce-back candidate after surrendering five goals on 33 shots to Anaheim on Sunday.
Mar 28 - 9:50 PM

Marcus Sorensen and Dylan DeMelo will be scratched against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Through 14 games Sorensen has posted three points and 12 hits. DeMelo has picked up eight points with 30 blocks and 31 hits in 24 games.

The veteran defender has posted four goals and 13 points along with 97 hits and 151 blocks in 57 games this season.
Mar 28 - 9:24 PM

Pavel Buchnevich, Brandon Pirri and Tanner Glass will be scratched against the Sharks on Tuesday.

The talented rookie has picked up eight goals and 20 points through a 37-game injured-plagued season. Glass meanwhile has picked up one point with 19 hits. Pirri to his credit has eight goals and 18 points in 57 games.
Mar 28 - 9:20 PM

Kevin Klein has been sidelined once again with a stiff back.

He's played just once since Feb. 21st due to back spasms, so this is certainly a concerning sign. Klein is considered day-to-day, for now.
