News: Kari Lehtonen made 35 saves on 37 shots in Tuesday's victory over Edmonton. Analysis: That's three straight wins for Kari Lehtonen now, and if he gave up four goals in one of them, well, at least he faced 41 shots in that game. All in all, he's showing good signs of getting his game on track after a disappointing start to the season.
News: Viktor Fasth allowed three goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Dallas. Analysis: A pair of Tyler Seguin goals in the second period ended up giving the Stars enough cushion to beat Edmonton, and Viktor Fasth can hardly be faulted for being Seguin's latest victim. Nonetheless, he's now taken losses in three straight starts and six out of eight on the season.
News: John Klingberg extended his goal streak to three games and his point streak to five in Tuesday's win over Edmonton, going plus-3 with his third marker of the year and an assist. Analysis: John Klingberg's achieved near-instant stardom in his first taste of the NHL, having started with three scoreless contests before exploding for eight points over the last five games.
News: Tyler Seguin scored a pair of goals on five shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Edmonton. Analysis: Uh oh, he's starting another one of those super-hot streaks now. That's five goals, an assist and a plus-7 rating for Tyler Seguin over the last four games.
News: Jacob Trouba picked up a pair of assists on Evander Kane power-play goals -- the second an empty-netter -- in Tuesday's win over Columbus. Analysis: It's not exactly front-page news, but Jacob Trouba does have three points over the last three games after totaling just three over his first 20 contests of the year. He's had a little bit of bad puck luck, but remains superbly talented and is skating major minutes -- 24:11 on Tuesday -- for the Jets.
News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: After returning to practice Tuesday, Pavel Datsyuk was back on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate, participating fully in drills. He'll find himself outside of a top-six role following a four-game absence, as he's set to skate with Stephen Weiss and Darren Helm on the team's third line. The arrangement won't necessarily resulted in decreased minutes for Datsyuk, but his scoring opportunities might not be quite as bountiful while he skates with lesser linemates.
News: Beau Bennett will miss two weeks with a lower body injury suffered against the Bruins on Monday. Analysis: Replays show the winger twisting his surgically-repaired right knee in a collision Monday, making it likely his knee is the issue. The Penguins recalled Jayson Megna recently and it appears as though he'll take Beau Bennett's spot in the interim.
News: Jaroslav Halak will be in the net Wednesday against the Capitals, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Analysis: Jaroslav Halak will take aim at his eighth straight win Wednesday, matching up against the team he briefly played with last season after being acquired last March. The netminder is 7-1 with a 1.31 GAA and .950 save percentage so far this month.
News: Marc-Andre Fleury is set to start Wednesday at home against the Maple Leafs. Analysis: The Pittsburgh goalie made 23 saves in a 5-2 win over Toronto on Oct. 11 at Consol Energy Center. Historically, the Maple Leafs have given Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pens trouble in Pittsburgh -- the Flower was pulled after allowing three goals in 11 shots last Nov. 27, making it possible Wednesday could be a high-scoring affair.
News: Francois Beauchemin left Tuesday's game against the Flames in the third period with an upper-body injury and didn't return, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Analysis: Francois Beauchemin was quite productive in his 16:29 of ice time, registering an assist and three hits, highlighted by a devastating hip check to the Flames' Brock Ferland that helped generate a turnover. However, the greater concern is the status of the blueliner's health, which will likely remain uncertain until the team practices Wednesday. Beauchemin has already missed multiple games this season due to a case of the mumps, so the Ducks can ill-afford to lose him for additional time.
