Rob Zepp made 25 saves on 28 shots in Philadelphia's 4-3 overtime win over Winnipeg.

The win was the first of his NHL career. Zepp made a big save on Jets' forward Mark Scheifele with the Flyers' trailing 3-1 in the second period. Philadelphia eventually scored three unanswered goals in the third period and overtime to win the game. Zepp is an interesting story. The 33-year-old is a nine-year veteran in Europe (Finland and Germany) but had never played a game at the NHL level before tonight. He will probably serve as Ray Emery's backup while Steve Mason (back) is out.

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia.

The Jets went into the third period with a 3-1 lead over the Flyers, but they couldn't hold on for the win. Pavelec has not lost a game in regulation since November 23rd (3-0-3). It's hard to trust either of Winnipeg's goaltenders because it looks like both Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson will continue to share time in goal. Pavelec's record falls to 10-8-5 on the season.
Dec 21 - 11:52 PM

Dustin Byfuglien scored a goal in Winnipeg's 4-3 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Byfuglien's first period goal gave the Jets a 2-1 lead in the game. Winnipeg had a 3-1 lead heading into the third, but they were unable to hold on for the win. The 29-year-old has eight goals and 18 points in 34 games this season, including 10 points in his last 10 games. Matt Halischuk and Mathieu Perreault also scored for the Jets.

Jakub Voracek scored two goals in Philadelphia's 4-3 overtime win over Winnipeg

Voracek opened the scoring in the first period and scored the overtime winner. The 25-year-old's dream season continues. No one could have seen this kind of offensive production coming from Voracek this season. He has 14 goals and 44 points in 33 games this season. Mark Streit and Vincent Lecavalier also scored for the Flyers.

Matt Bartkowski was ejected from Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Bartkowski levelled Sabres' captain Brian Gionta with a high hit. It's difficult to tell if the head was the principal point of contact because Bartkowski is roughly six inches taller than Gionta. At the very least, the Bruins' defenseman can expect a phone call from the NHL's Department of Player Safety.
Dec 21 - 10:38 PM

Jhonas Enroth stopped 33 of 37 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Boston.

The Sabres had a 3-2 lead late in the third period when Bruins' defenseman Dougie Hamilton scored with 1:31 left in the game to tie things up. Enroth has now lost back-to-back starts but he's 7-3-0 in his last 10 games. The 26-year-old has an overall record of 10-11-2 with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage.
Dec 21 - 10:25 PM

Tuukka Rask stopped 25 of 28 shots in Boston's 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo.

The win ends Rask's personal four-game winless streak (0-2-2). After an outstanding season in 2013-14, Rask's numbers have really come down to earth. He is 13-10-3 with a 2.52 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage. Rask is a solid buy-low candidate in standard fantasy leagues.
Dec 21 - 10:22 PM

Tim Schaller scored a goal in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss in Boston.

Schaller was born in Merrimack New Hampshire, which is about one our outside of Boston. The 24-year-old was called up earlier in the day because the Sabres have been dealing with several injuries at the forward position. Andrej Meszaros and Rasmus Ristolainen also scored for Buffalo. Schaller doesn't have any fantasy value going forward.
Dec 21 - 10:18 PM

Dougie Hamilton scored two goals and an assist in Boston's 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo.

Hamilton opened the scoring on the power play in the first period, and he tied the game on the man advantage in the final two minutes of the game. The points end Hamilton's personal five game pointless streak. Hamilton has seven goals and 20 points in 33 games this season. Loui Eriksson scored the overtime winner for Boston.
Dec 21 - 10:15 PM

Anton Khudobin allowed one goal on 31 shots but it wasn't enough, as the Hurricanes fell 1-0 to the New York Rangers.

Ryan McDonagh was the only player to score a goal in tonight's game. With December quickly coming to an end, Anton Khudobin is still searching for his first win. His record falls to 0-8-2 this season with a 2.91 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.
Dec 21 - 10:09 PM

Cameron Talbot stopped all 18 shots he faced in Sunday's 1-0 win over Carolina.

Talbot wasn't terribly busy tonight, but he was steady throughout the game. The 27-year-old has three wins on the season and they all came via the shutout. He has a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage. Despite the solid numbers, he has no fantasy upside because he's stuck behind Henrik Lundqvist.
Dec 21 - 10:06 PM

Antti Raanta made 31 saves in Sunday's 4-0 win over Toronto.

Raanta has now won five consecutive starts. The 25-year-old has started three of Chicago's last four games but that will change with Corey Crawford back in the fold for the Hawks. Raanta is 6-2-0 with a 1.76 goals-against-average and a .945 save percentage.
Dec 21 - 10:02 PM

James Reimer stopped 30 of 34 shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to Chicago.

The loss ends Reimer's personal two-game winning streak. Chicago just outclassed Toronto from start to finish tonight. Reimer's record falls to 6-4-0 with a 3.26 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season. The 26-year-old has been up and down throughout the year, and he remains a good backup goaltender.
Dec 21 - 9:59 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes were blanked 1-0 by the New York Rangers on Sunday night.

The Hurricanes have now dropped eight of their last nine contests. If Carolina keeps losing, they will probably start unloading some of their high priced veterans, including their captain Eric Staal. The 30-year-old has hit a bit of a rut in Carolina. He has seven goals and 18 points in 28 games this season. Even though he's having a disappointing season, the asking price for Staal will still be high.
Dec 21 - 9:53 PM

Ryan McDonagh scored a goal in the Rangers' 1-0 win over Carolina.

McDonagh's first period goal held for the rest of the game. The low score is a little surprising considering both team's had their backup goaltenders in. McDonagh has two goals and 10 points in 20 games this season. Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello picked up the assists on the goal. The Rangers have now won six games in a row.
