News: John Klingberg scored the overtime-winning goal Saturday against Vancouver. Analysis: It was a perfect shot from the 22-year-old, who now has 11 goals and 38 points in 59 games. While his goal Saturday was his first in 22 games, the youngster has been logging heavy minutes for the Stars and has been steadily dishing out the assists. Playing on the top power-play unit with Tyler Seguin, John Klingberg has emerged as a lethal offensive defenseman who is playing a key role for a Stars team that has won five of their last six games.
News: Cody Eakin collected a pair of assist in Saturday's win over Vancouver. Analysis: Skating on the second line, Cody Eakin has been producing steadily of late, racking up five goals and 11 points in his last 14 games. The 23-year-old has a career-high 17 goals this season and is a solid scorer for a Dallas team that has won five of their last six games.
News: Trevor Daley returned to the lineup Saturday, collecting two assists in 24:19 of ice time in Saturday's win over Vancouver. Analysis: Trevor Daley had been out since March 3 with a knee injury, but returned in a big way Saturday, helping the Stars pick up their fifth win in six games. Daley now has 35 points in 62 games and appears back to full health. With 16 goals on the season, including six power-play tallies, Daley is worth adding if he's available.
News: Tyler Seguin scored his 34th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over vancouver. Analysis: Tyler Seguin is now up to 69 points in 66 games, with early-November marking the last time he went more than two games without recording a point. With 11 power-play tallies and 258 shots on goal, the 23-year-old fantasy stud is a must-start every game.
News: Eddie Lack gave up four goals on 40 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to the Stars. Analysis: A decent outing for Eddie Lack, who has now lost two straight games, surrendering seven goals in that span. The 27-year-old falls to 14-11-4 on the season, but still owns an impressive .919 save percentage and 2.48 GAA. Ryan Miller (knee) appears to be out for the remainder of the regular season, so the Canucks playoff hopes will be riding on Lack. Keep him rolling, as everything is on the line and he should be at his best.
News: Kari Lehtonen stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's win over the Canucks. Analysis: While Kari Lehtonen has won eight of his last 10 games, he's allowed at least three goals in four straight outings. While his .907 save percentage and 2.84 GAA needs work, Lehtonen's 34-15-10 record makes him a reliable fantasy option. He starts almost every game and hasn't suffered back-to-back regulation losses since late-January.
News: Mathieu Perreault (lower body) will be available for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Analysis: Mathieu Perreault has not played in more than a month after suffering a lower body injury back in mid-February. After resuming skating Thursday, he's recovered to the point that coach Paul Maurice feels comfortable deploying him Sunday. At this point, it's unclear if Perreault will be limited by the injury or if he'll have his ice time capped at a certain total.
News: Antti Niemi will not start Sunday's game, though he did take part in morning skate, Kevin Kurz of CSN reports. Analysis: Antti Niemi is still battling an illness, so Alex Stalock will make his second straight start in goal. Niemi has been solid for most of the season - 2.62 GAA, 91.4 save percentage - but he's allowed four goals in each of his last two outings.
News: Alex Stalock will get the start in net Sunday, Kevin Kurz of CSN reports. Analysis: Alex Stalock will start his second straight game as Antti Niemi is still feeling under the weather. In Saturday's win over the Flyers, Stalock saved 16 of 18 shots. On the season, he holds a 2.60 GAA and 90.2 save percentage.
News: Braden Holtby will start between the pipes for Washington against the Rangers on Sunday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports. Analysis: Braden Holtby was pulled early in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Nashville after allowing three goals in the first period, presumably so he would be fresh for Sunday's crucial showdown with the Rangers. Although the matchup is difficult, Holtby has been a strong performer this year and must be trusted to have a bounce-back game as the Capitals try to hold on to a playoff berth amid a late-season slide.
