News: Mike Smith won his 25th game of the season as the Coyotes stayed in the postseason hunt with a 3-2 win over Calgary on Saturday night. He stopped 29 of 31 shots (.935). Analysis: Although backup Thomas Greiss has better stats, Mike Smith will get the great majority of starts in the Coyotes' 13 remaining regular-season games.
News: Keith Yandle collected two assists, including one on a power play, as the Coyotes beat Calgary on Saturday. Analysis: It's understandably rare when a blueliner leads his team in scoring. Keith Yandle is the sole elite scorer on the Phoenix roster, at least in leagues with positional requirements.
News: Chris Summers logged his first NHL goal in a 3-2 win over Calgary on Saturday night. Analysis: This marker isn't likely to have many little brothers and sisters, as he's on the roster for depth, and will likely head back to the AHL soon. But we always enjoy noting this kind of milestone.
News: Shane Doan scored on a power play in the third period of Saturday's contest against Calgary. The marker proved to be the game-winner as the Coyotes prevailed, 3-2. Analysis: He has eight points in 10 games after the Olympic break, and has helped the Coyotes in a late-season playoff-qualification push. That bodes well for his play in the remaining 13 games on the schedule.
News: Patrick Maroon scored a goal during the second period of a 2-1 defeat of the Kings on Saturday. Analysis: While Patrick Maroon now has three points in his last four games, it is worth mentioning that Saturday's goal ends an 11-game-long goalless streak for him.
News: Tim Jackman scored a goal during the first period of a 2-1 victory over the Kings. Analysis: While Tim Jackman only has four goals this season, it might be worth noting that two of those goals have taken place during the course of his last three games.
News: Frederik Andersen stopped 37 of 38 shots on goal during a 2-1 victory over the Kings on Saturday. Analysis: After Wednesday's rough game, Saturday's performance might be just what Frederik Andersen needed to regain his rhythm.
News: Simon Despres, who saw the least number of minutes (15:05 TOI) among Pittsburgh defensemen Saturday, has zero points in seven games since being recalled after the Olympics. Analysis: He's taken five minor penalties in those seven tilts and seems to be an easy target for refs whenever they want to call a Pittsburgh penalty. There's a good chance Simon Despres would have been dealt at the deadline if not for ailments to both Paul Martin and Kris Letang. He has offensive potential, but an offseason change of scenery might be the best thing for him.
News: Sidney Crosby finished pointless with a minus-3 rating Saturday against the Flyers. Analysis: Linemate Chris Kunitz was a late scratch. After the first period, Pittsburgh tried pairing Sidney Crosby with Evgeni Malkin, but the Pens couldn't get anything going against a hungry Flyers team.
News: Marc-Andre Fleury allowed four goals on 40 shots in a Saturday matinee loss to Philadelphia. Analysis: The Penguins came out as flat as they have all year long. For his part, Marc-Andre Fleury made numerous stops to keep the game 2-0 after 20 minutes. Of course, that's of little consolation to fantasy owners.
