News: Eric Gelinas practiced with the team's extra defensive pair on Monday with Anton Volchenkov skating alongside Bryce Salvador, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports. Gelinas could be out of the lineup Tuesday against Philadelphia. Analysis: Eric Gelinas has no points in three games and saw his ice time drop from 20:34 in Friday's loss to Detroit to 10:34 in Saturday's win over Carolina. He's a plus-3 over that span, but the Devils have allowed an uncharacteristic 11 goals over their last two games. Of that 10:34 Gelinas played on Saturday, just 36 seconds were on the power play, which could mean a limited role going forward. If you have other options on Tuesday, given the heavy slate of games, consider using them.
News: Brandon Gormley, the Coyotes' first round pick in 2010, made his NHL debut Monday in place of Derek Morris in a win over Tampa Bay. He was plus-1 and registered one shot in 13:22 of ice time. Analysis: Brandon Gormley has 34 points and a minus-22 rating in 52 games for AHL Portland this season.
News: Ryan Miller is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Stars, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports. Analysis: Ryan Miller is in line to return to the Blues' net Tuesday after giving way to Brian Elliott in Sunday's win over the Wild. Miller has won all four of his turns with the Blues, in addition to his final start with the Sabres.
News: Derek Morris was a healthy scratch for Monday's game against Tampa Bay. He was replaced in the lineup by Brandon Gormley. Analysis: Derek Morris has not recorded a point since January 26 and has zero points and a minus-3 rating since the league resumed play following the Olympics. He is not likely to be out of the Coyotes' lineup for long, but keep an eye on his ice time to determine whether he should be in your lineup.
News: Martin Brodeur, and not Cory Schneider, will start Tuesday's contest against Philadelphia, marking the second-consecutive game in which Brodeur will start, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports. Analysis: Cory Schneider had a rough outing last Friday in a 7-4 loss to Detroit, but Martin Brodeur hasn't played terribly better, allowing four goals in last Saturday's win over Carolina. Neither netminder is proving highly effective of late, but the Olympic break snapped a string of solid play from Schneider, who will have started on three of the team's seven games since the break after Tuesday.
News: Adam Henrique (rest) will play in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia after sitting out practice on Monday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports. Analysis: There's nothing to worry about here with Adam Henrique, as the Devils will have one of the league's hottest scorers in their lineup Tuesday against a team who has been spotty of late on defense. Henrique has a goal in each of the six games since the Olympic break, totalling none over that stretch and four in the last two games.
News: Roberto Luongo was the first goalie off the ice Tuesday, suggesting that he is in line to start the Panthers' evening game against the Coyotes, NHL.com's Alain Poupart reports. Analysis: The start will be the third straight for Roberto Luongo since coming over to the Panthers in advance of last week's NHL trade deadline. After recording a shutout in his first start back with Florida, Luongo gave up four goals on 41 shots in a loss to Boston on Sunday.
News: P.A. Parenteau, who sustained a right MCL injury Monday, is likely to miss the rest of the regular season, NHL.com reports. "We'll see for playoffs, but he will be out for four-to-six weeks," according to Avalanche coach Patrick Roy. Analysis: With P.A. Parenteau (who has 33 points in 53 games) out, and Paul Stastny hurting, the Avs will bring up forwards Paul Carey and Brad Malone from AHL Lake Erie.
News: Shane Doan picked up an assist Monday in a win over the Lightning. He was plus-1 and took three shots. Analysis: Shane Doan has been playing very well since the Olympic break, having picked up six points in seven games giving him 37 points in 52 games. He will reach the 40 point plateau and would have even better overall numbers if he had not had a lengthy illness earlier this season.
News: Antoine Vermette picked up an assist Monday in a win over Tampa Bay. It was his second consecutive game with a helper. Analysis: Antoine Vermette reaches the 40 point mark for the first time since 2010-11 when he was with Columbus. He continues to play significant minutes (more than 19 per game) and is building a strong season that provides value in many deeper leagues.
