News: Nicklas Jensen scored for the second straight game in Sunday's win over Florida. Analysis: Nicklas Jensen has impressed since being called up from Utica, tallying two goals, one assist, and a plus-3 rating in his first five career NHL games. With injuries to Daniel Sedin (hamstring) and Ryan Kesler (knee), the 21-year-old has been playing on the top line. It won't be too long before the youngster becomes a well-known name in fantasy hockey.
News: Thomas Vanek had six shots on goal in Sunday's win over Buffalo and now has 16 in the past three games. Analysis: Since moving to the top line with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty, Thomas Vanek has more shots on goal but just one assist. At some point, we'll see Vanek generate the kind of offense the Canadiens were hoping for when they acquired him from the Islanders. Until then, you'll just have to take comfort in the fact that he's establishing a rapport with his new mates and the signs are there.
News: Brian Gionta was moved to the third line for Sunday's game against Buffalo. He had three shots on goal in 14:43 in Montreal's 2-0 win. Analysis: Brendan Gallagher replaced the captain on the Tomas Plekanec line. Brian Gionta's been a top-six forward all season, but that's only because he doesn't line up on the third or fourth lines. At 33 points in 68 games, he doesn't produce like a top-six threat. He's now on a line with Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk.
News: Brendan Gallagher lined up on the second line with Tomas Plekanec and Daniel Briere for Sunday night's win over Buffalo. He scored his 17th goal of the season and had four shots on goal in the win. Analysis: Brendan Gallagher can play with any linemates, so it's not surprising to see him provide a lift for the Plekanec line. Coach Michel Therrien continues to tinker, hoping to find some semblance of balanced scoring on a team that doesn't generate enough offense. The latest tweak moves captain Brian Gionta to the third line.
News: Henrik Sedin dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's shootout win over Florida. Analysis: While it's nice to see Hank on the scoresheet, these are not good times for Henrik Sedin fantasy owners. Henrik only has three points in his last 16 games, putting him on pace for a 50-point season, which would be his lowest full-season total since 2003-2004.
News: Dan Hamhuis scored his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's win over Florida, ending a 48-game goal drought. Analysis: Wow, 48 games, had it really been that long? Dan Hamhuis has gone cold as of late, tallying only two points in his last 15 games. It has been a forgettable year for the 31-year-old, who only has 17 points through 68 games. It's not all bad though, as his plus-10 rating is quite impressive, considering the way the Canucks have struggled. Still, you can't be happy with the fact he is on pace to post a lower point total this season than he did in a shortened campaign (47 games) last season.
News: Beau Bennett (wrist) has been cleared for full practice participation. Analysis: Beau Bennett -- who has been out since late November -- is slated to practice Monday, though it's unclear if he has a chance to be activated in advance of Tuesday's game against the Stars.
News: Kris Letang (illness) has been cleared for full practice participation. Analysis: Kris Letang is slated to practice Monday, which is a major step toward his potential return to action after suffering a stroke in January, though at this stage there is no timetable on that front outlined by the Penguins.
News: Brayden Schenn scored a goal, collected two PIM, and added four hits for good measure in Sunday's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. Analysis: Brayden Schenn has stepped up his offensive game recently. In the 10 games before the Olympic break, he managed just two points and two PIM. Since that break, he's already notched five points and four PIM in just eight games. He could offer some value in deeper leagues, especially if the Flyers can continue the momentum from this weekend's wins against Pittsburgh.
News: Roberto Luongo will start in goal Sunday against the Canucks, Erin Brown of FOX Sports Florida reports. Analysis: Roberto Luongo will mind the net in search of his 22nd win of the season, and third since joining Florida.
