Player News
Nathan MacKinnon
Avs' MacKinnon Dishes Out Two Assists
Nathan MacKinnon, C, COL
12:53 PM
News: Nathan MacKinnon dished out a pair of helpers in Friday's win over Nashville.
Analysis: The two points snapped a three-game scoring drought for Nathan MacKinnon, who now has nine goals and 29 points in 50 games. While he's been held off the scoresheet in seven of his last nine games, the Avs are playing good hockey right now, picking up at least one point in six of their last seven games. MacKinnon's only 19, so we wouldn't give up on him just yet this season. His whopping 152 shots on goal indicate more goals are on the way. Patience is a virtue.

Mike Ribeiro
Preds' Ribeiro Piles On PIM
Mike Ribeiro, C, NSH
12:39 PM
News: Mike Ribeiro took a break from scoring Friday, racking up 22 PIM in a loss to Colorado.
Analysis: While Mike Ribeiro has 43 points (33 assists) in 48 games this season, he is also now among the league's top-100 PIM leaders. Producing at basically a point-per-game pace and sporting a steady plus-15 rating, Ribeiro is worth owning in most formats.

Marek Mazanec
Preds' Mazanec Gives Up Two Goals In Loss
Marek Mazanec, G, NSH
12:35 PM
News: Marek Mazanec gave up two goals on 27 shots in Friday's loss to Colorado.
Analysis: It was a good effort from Marek Mazanec, who got no offensive support in the shutout loss. It was the first start of the season for the 23-year-old, who had been giving way to Carter Hutton in Pekka Rinne's (knee) absence. Considering Hutton has given up seven goals in his last two starts, Mazanec could be worth a temporary pick-up until Rinne returns.

Semyon Varlamov
Avs' Varlamov Makes 23 Saves, Blanks Predators
Semyon Varlamov, G, COL
12:24 PM
News: Semyon Varlamov stopped all 23 shots he faced in Friday's shutout win over Nashville.
Analysis: A perfect outing for the workhorse, who has started 14 of the Avs' past 15 games. Semyon Varlamov is now 13-10-7 on the season with a .922 save percentage and 2.62 GAA. He's delivered some consistency play of late, allowing more than three goals just once in his last 10 appearances. Considering he's starting almost every game for an Avs team that has picked up at least one point in six of their last seven games, Varlamov is a great own in almost all formats.

Frederik Andersen
Ducks' Andersen Beat Handily By Blackhawks
Frederik Andersen, G, ANA
7:17 AM
News: Frederik Andersen allowed four goals on 33 shots in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: Freddy was essentially done-in by dominant performances by Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane (two goals and an assist) and Patrick Sharp (four assists). The loss snaps a seven-game winning streak for Frederik Andersen, who has been dynamite for Anaheim this year with a .918 save percentage, 2.27 GAA and an eye-popping 27-7-5 record through 41 performances. The only potential hazard here is fatigue, as no goalie in the Western Conference has spent more time between the pipes (2,383:51 TOI) than Andersen -- especially as the Ducks dont have a reliable backup at the moment with Ilya Bryzgalov having posted horrendous numbers (.832 save percentage, 4.69 GAA) in five appearances this season.

Lubomir Visnovsky
Isles Activate Visnovsky
Lubomir Visnovsky, D, NYI
7:13 AM
News: Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Lubomir Visnovsky appears to be ready to go after missing about three weeks with the injury. The veteran rearguard has seen his offense hit the skids over the last few seasons, with an inability to stay healthy undoubtedly factoring into his decline. Even with his career on the downturn, Visnovsky will still likely represent an upgrade over Brian Strait, who he figures to replace in lineup for Saturday's tilt with the Red Wings.

Corey Crawford
Hawks' Crawford Bests Ducks Friday
Corey Crawford, G, CHI
7:06 AM
News: Corey Crawford turned aside 21 of 22 shots in Friday's 4-1 road win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Corey Crawford's 19th win of the season was almost his second shutout of the campaign as well, but his goose egg was spoiled with less than 10 minutes remaining by the Ducks' Rickard Rakell, who found twine on the man advantage. Despite having beaten two of the league's best in Anaheim and Pittsburgh over the last three games, Crow has been a bit shaky recently, allowing 15 goals over his last five contests. We'll chalk it up to just a minor blip for owners though, as his .920 save percentage and 2.28 GAA -- especially combined with the fact that he plays on one of the NHL's elite teams -- makes him simply one of the best goaltending options in all of fantasy.

Duncan Keith
Hawks' Keith Ends Goal Drought Friday
Duncan Keith, D, CHI
7:01 AM
News: Duncan Keith scored what turned out to be the game-winner Friday night and ended a goal-drought that dates back to December 6.
Analysis: The goal was his seventh of the season and is one more than his entire scoring of last season. In addition to seven goals, Duncan Keith has 23 assists on the season. Unless he has an incredible run in the second half, Keith will not match his career high of 55 assists that he collected last season.

Jori Lehtera
Blues' Lehtera Likely Out Sunday
Jori Lehtera, C, STL
6:52 AM
News: Jori Lehtera (undisclosed) who is believed to be suffering from an upper body injury, is not likely to suit up Saturday against the Caps, according to coach Ken Hitchcock, reports Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: The Blues still haven't specified Jori Lehtera's injury, but it looks like he will be unavailable into next week at least.

Patrick Kane
Hawks' Kane On Fire With 2 Goals Friday
Patrick Kane, RW, CHI
6:51 AM
News: Patrick Kane had a pair of goals on Friday night in the Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over the Ducks and has five goals in his last five games.
Analysis: Going into Saturday night's game against the Sharks, Patrick Kane has six goals and 15 assists in 26 games against San Jose in his career. The Blackhawks' second line with Kane, Patrick Sharp and Brad Richards is on fire. Kane had two goals and an assist in the win against the Ducks while Sharp added four assists and Richards chipped in an assist of his own. With two more goals Kane has accumulated 25 on the season in 49 games. If he stays away from injuries, he'll easily surpass his career high in goals in a season of 30 in the 2009-10 season. It's doubtful though that he will surpass his career high of 88 points in that season. He currently has 56 points in 49 games including 31 assists.
