Jacob De La Rose scored the first two goals of his NHL career on Thursday night as the Habs beat Columbus 5-2.

The 19-year-old Swedish flash captured everyone's attention with six points in seven games during the World Juniors at the beginning of the year, and is breaking in with the Habs quite swimmingly so far. The 6'2, 190 pound winger fired four shots on goal in the victory.

Cam Talbot stopped 37 of 40 shots on Thursday night to help the Rangers overcome a two-goal deficit and beat the Coyotes 4-3, moving them into first place in the Metropolitan Division.

Chris Kreider and Lee Stempniak each had two goals for New York, who fell behind 3-1 in the first period. The team regrouped to tie the score in the second, and Kreider scored the winner with just under three minutes remaining in the third. Talbot won his third straight game, improving his record to 8-1-2 since starter Henrik Lundqvist went down. In total, Talbot is 12-5-3 with a .915 save percentage and 2.49 goals against average.
Feb 26 - 11:01 PM

Mike Smith allowed four goals on 38 shots, including the game-winning goal with under three minutes to go in the third during a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

Smith has now lost seven straight games and has allowed three or more goals in four of his past five games. His record during this awful season is 10-29-5 with a .895 save percentage and 3.29 goals against average.

Sam Gagner scored two power play goals in the first period on Thursday night in a 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

Gagner had been pointless in his previous five games, and has managed 30 points through 61 games this season. It was his third multi-goal game in the desert and his 14th straight game he did not finish above zero in plus/minus, a span in which he's been -10.

Chris Kreider netted two goals to help the Rangers beat Arizona 4-3 on Thursday night and take possession of first place in the Metropolitan.

Kreider now has 16 goals and 33 points through 58 games this season. The 23-year-old was scoreless in his past four, but connected twice on the power play to help the Rangers overcome a two-goal first period deficit.
Feb 26 - 10:50 PM

Michal Neuvirth was solid for the Sabres yet again, making 28 saves on 31 shots to lead Buffalo to a 6-3 win over the Canucks.

Neuvirth is 3-3-2 this month since Jhonas Enroth left for Dallas, which is pretty good considering it's the Sabres we're talking about. He has allowed under three goals in five of those games, while his overall record is 6-16-3 with a .918 save percentage and 2.95 goals against average.

Bobby Sanguinetti was reassigned to AHL Utica after Vancouver's loss in Buffalo on Thursday night.

The former NY Rangers first round draft pick in 2006 has not played in the NHL since April of 2013 with Carolina.
Feb 26 - 10:20 PM

Eddie Lack had an off night on Thursday, allowing five goals on 23 shots to the lowest scoring team in the league during a 6-3 loss to Buffalo.

After two strong appearances in place for the injured Ryan Miller, Lack posted one of his worst starts of the season. Everyone has a down game once in a while, but the Canucks won't stick with Lack if Jacob Markstrom runs with his chance to steal the show. Lack falls to 7-8-2 with a .916 save percentage and 2.63 goals against average.
Feb 26 - 10:12 PM

Andrej Sekera was not on ice for warm-ups against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

It does not appear that the newly acquired Sekera will make his Kings debut tonight.
Feb 26 - 10:12 PM

Dan Hamhuis provided two assists for the Canucks on Thursday night, but Vancouver came up well short in a 6-3 loss to Buffalo.

The veteran blueliner now has 14 assists through 39 games this season, a minus-five rating and 25 penalty minutes. Unfortunately, his shutdown capabilities don't translate well into fantasy value, so the 32-year-old is best left alone in leagues.
Feb 26 - 10:02 PM

Torrey Mitchell notched two goals, including the game winner for the Sabres on Thursday night in a 6-3 victory over the Canucks.

Mitchell now has five goals and seven assists through 50 games this season. The 30-year-old veteran has four points in his past five games, but it's unlikely he can maintain fantasy-valuable numbers for long.
Feb 26 - 9:55 PM

Zemgus Girgensons has been placed on injured reserve.

Girgensons has 15 goals and 30 points, both career highs, in 61 games this season. He also tallied 25 PIMs, 62 blocks (fifth among forwards), and 127 hits. Keep the Latvian sensation in mind as the Sabres continue to build up their talent.
Feb 26 - 8:59 PM

Brandon Dubinsky suffered an upper body injury immediately after tying the game at one early in Thursday's tilt with Montreal.

Because a myriad of injuries, Dubinsky has already missed 26 games this season but he's been effective in the 34 games he has played, including tonight. He has eight goals, 22 points, 37 PIMs, and 112 hits while winning 51% of his faceoffs. The extent and type of his injury is not yet known.
Feb 26 - 8:54 PM

Barclay Goodrow will be scratched against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Through 41 games this season, Goodrow has a quartet of goals and 10 points along with 57 hits in his rookie campaign.
