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: Chris Kelly (undisclosed) was back at practice Wednesday. Analysis: Chris Kelly, who had missed the Bruins' previous two games with an injury, looked to be a full participant in the session and was centering the team's third line. He figures to be on tap for a return to the lineup Friday versus the Jets, as was intimated when the Bruins sent Alexander Khokhlachev back to the minors a day earlier.
News: Braden Holtby will start in net Wednesday against the Islanders. Analysis: Braden Holtby made 24 saves on 26 shots Saturday against the Sabres, but took a 2-1 loss in the game. He will enter Wednesday's tilt with a 7-5-2 record along with a 2.25 GAA and .915 save percentage.
News: Scottie Upshall will miss at least a week due to an apparent ankle injury, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: Scottie Upshall missed two games last week due to a lower-body injury, and suffered a setback upon returning to the lineup Monday against the Wild. The winger was spotted wearing a walking boot after Tuesday's practice and looks like he'll be off the ice for the next few days as the Panthers wait for him to recover from the injury.
News: Devin Setoguchi has been waived by the Flames, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports. Analysis: Devin Setoguchi had no points and a minus-7 in 12 games, so Calgary cut him loose. Setoguchi was dynamite for the Sharks a few years ago, but has steadily gone downhill ever since.
News: James Neal failed to crack the scoresheet during Tuesday's shootout win over Los Angeles, marking the fourth consecutive game he was held without a point. Analysis: The good news is, James Neal continues to skate on the Preds' top line with Mike Ribeiro and rookie Filip Forsberg, and is seeing monster minutes (21:09 versus the Kings, including 4:48 on the power play). He's also shooting the puck a ton - he fired off five shots on Tuesday and has 28 in his last seven games alone. As long as these positive signs persist, the points will come. Keep rolling him as you normally would.
