Teuvo Teravainen was limited to just 8:56 of ice time in Friday's 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

He had a minus-3 rating in the contest and coach Bill Peters didn't like the effort Teravainen was making defensively. He had one goal and two assists in two contests before Friday's match to give him 24 points this season.

Jeff Skinner was benched in Friday's 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

He was whistled for an embellishment penalty and for unsportsmanlike conduct during the second period. Skinner was on the pine in the third period. "You don't want to hurt the team," he said. "It's tough sitting, watching, especially when guys are out there battling." He finished the contest with just 10:22 of ice time.

Jaromir Jagr scored the only goal for the Florida Panthers in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Jared McCann fed Jagr on the doorstep for an easy tap in on the power play. The goal was Jagr's 9th of the season and 29th point in 48 games. The 44-year-old impressively continues to find ways to score. He is only an effective fantasy option in deeper formats.

Henrik Sedin scored a goal in a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Henrik Sedin took a nice feed from brother Daniel before beating Luongo with a nice move for his 1000th career NHL point in his 1213th game. It was a special moment for the 36-year-old Swede and it must have been extra special to celebrate it with a win. Luca Sbisa scored the game-winning goal for the Canucks just over three minutes into the third period. Henrik Sedin now has 30 points in 47 games this season.
Jan 21 - 1:44 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped 30 of 32 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Luongo gave up a goal to Henrik Sedin for his 1000th career point in the NHL, he then went and congratulated his former teammates on the great accomplishment. Luongo has now lost three straight games in goal for the Panthers, giving up 10 goals during that span. His record drops to 13-13-5 with a 2.44 goals against average and a .921 save percentage.
Jan 21 - 1:37 AM

Ryan Miller stopped 34 of 35 shots in a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Quietly, Miller has a 10-1-3 record and a .930 save percentage over his last 14 games. His goals against average and save percentage have improved from 2.71 and .911 to 2.48 and .920 respectively over that span. Owned in in 62% of yahoo leagues, it's time to pick up the 36-year-old netminder.
Jan 21 - 1:32 AM

Ryan Johansen picked up assists on both Nashville goals in a 3-2 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

His two assists came with a nice sucker punch thrown to Benoit Pouliot while the latter was tangled up with a referee. Johansen now has seven goals and 32 points in 46 games this season. His assists came on goals scored by Ryan Ellis and Viktor Arvidsson.
Jan 21 - 1:22 AM

Milan Lucic tied the game on the power play with less than five minutes remaining in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.

It was a great sequence leading up to the goal for Lucic. He first obliterated Austin Watson behind the net, then drew a retaliation penalty before putting the puck in the back of the end on the ensuing power play. It was Lucic's first goal since December 21 against the Coyotes. This season has been increasingly hard to deal with his inconsistent scoring habits because his penalty minute totals are down. However, he did pick up seven penalty minutes in the loss. He now has 28 points and 25 penalty minutes in 48 games this season.
Jan 21 - 1:18 AM

Cam Talbot made 42 saves on 44 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators on Friday.

Talbot's winning streak ends at four games. He was simply sensational in goal, stealing a point for the Oilers in this one. With the Oilers really lacking a quality backup netminder, we wouldn't be at all surprised to see Talbot start again tomorrow night in Calgary. However, if the Oilers are to make a serious playoff push, they'll need to pick up a goaltender who can give Talbot some time off. His record fell to 24-12-7 with a 2.41 goals against average and a .919 save percentage.
Jan 21 - 1:13 AM

Pekka Rinne stopped 30 of 32 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.

Rinne made some beautiful saves in overtime to give his team the chance to win it in the shootout. He is remarkably 7-0-0 in his career against the Oilers. He was not playing to his usual standards earlier in the season, and there was a lot of talk about getting Juuse Saros more starts but he has responded by turning in some lights out performances. Rinne has now given up two goals or less in six of his last seven starts in goal. His record improves to 17-12-2 with a 2.35 goals against average and .921 save percentage.
Jan 21 - 1:06 AM

Taylor Hall picked up an assist in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

It first appeared that Hall tipped in Santini's point shot, but Santini has been credited with the goal. Hall leads all Devils with 30 points this season, albeit in just 37 games this season. He is having a good season with the Devils but he hasn't exactly jump started their offense like they had hoped.
Jan 20 - 10:58 PM

Alex Galchenyuk registered a goal and two assists in a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

All of his points came on the power play. Galchenyuk took a nice feed from Radulov for the first goal of the game for the Habs. He then picked up two assists on power-play goals by Shea Weber and Max Pacioretty. With 27 points in 29 games, Galchenyuk is having the breakout season we all expected.
Jan 20 - 10:54 PM

Keith Kinkaid stopped 23 of 26 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

Kinkaid had a good game in goal, making big saves on both Philip Danault and Jacob De La Rose. However, like it's been for the past few seasons, the Devils just couldn't score enough goals to come away with the win. Kinkaid has a 5-5-2 record and he doesn't have any fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 10:49 PM

Al Montoya stopped 16 of 17 shots in a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

With the Canadiens playing the Sabres tomorrow, the Habs decided on giving Price an extra days rest and turned to Montoya against the Devils. The moved payed off with the Habs playing excellent defense, limiting the Devils to just 17 shots. Montoya's record improved to 7-4-2 on the year and is proving to be a solid backup for the Canadiens.
