Matt Cullen and Kevin Fiala will be scratched against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

Through 58 games this season, Cullen has produced just seven goals and 24 points.

Fiala meanwhile, has yet to make his NHL debut. The 18 year old has scored nine goals and 17 points in 26 games for AHL Milwaukee.

Veteran forward Matt Cullen scored his seventh goal of the season in the Nashville Predators' 4-1 loss to the Rangers in New York Monday night.

Matt Cullen has registered eight points in his last eight games.

The 38-year-old has been quiet for most of the season but he seems to have caught fire down the stretch. He is currently on a three-game point streak, and he is coming off back-to-back two point games. Cullen has never been known as a big-time point producer but he did have several 40-plus point seasons in his career. He has six goals and 19 points in 48 games this season.

Cullen moved from the third line to the second line for this game. He has five goals and 13 points in 41 games this season. His fantasy upside is extremely limited.
