News: Zbynek Michalek scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over Anaheim. Analysis: Zbynek Michalek now has six points in 35 games, to go with a minus-5 rating. Considering it's been five years since the 32-year-old surpassed the 20-point mark, don't expect much more offense from Michalek this season. Considering he sees almost no power-play time, Michalek doesn't provide much fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.
News: Kari Lehtonen made 30 saves on 33 shots in Saturday's win over the Blues. Analysis: Kari Lehtonen is now 4-1-0 in his last six appearances, giving up 14 goals in that span. The 31-year-old is 14-8-5 on the season, with a .904 save percentage and 2.99 GAA. While he gets the call almost every night for Dallas, the Stars have allowed a whopping 113 goals-against this season, with the disastrous Oilers being the only other team to yield more. Lehtonen is a great fantasy option if you're looking for wins, but if you want solid rate stats, don't expect impressive totals from Lehtonen.
News: Jake Allen gave up four goals on 24 shots in Saturday's loss to Dallas. Analysis: Not the best night for Jake Allen, who has now lost three straight games, giving up a whopping 12 goals in that span. While he remains a top fantasy option with an 11-5-2 record, his .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA is a tad alarming. While he will likely remain the starter with Brian Elliot (knee) out, expect Allen to lose a significant amount of starts once Elliot returns -- especially if the 24-year-old continues to struggle.
News: Henrik Zetterberg notched a goal and assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Senators. Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg's third-period tally was his first goal on the power-play this season and gave him his second two-point performance in as many games. The 34-year-old has registered a point in four consecutive games and will have a chance at surpassing the 70-point plateau for the sixth time in his career if health permits the rest of the way.
News: Niklas Kronwall registered two assists in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Senators. Analysis: Niklas Kronwall was a setup man on both of the Red Wings' regulation goals, showing that the upper-body ailment that threatened his availability for Saturday's game is nothing to fret over. The points were the first in four games for the blueliner, who has noticed his production tail off since the start of December.
News: Anton Forsberg was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Sunday. Analysis: Anton Forsberg didn't play Saturday, but was recalled on an emergency basis after Sergei Bobrovsky came down with a stomach illness. The Blue Jackets don't play again until Wednesday, and Bobrovsky will likely be available, making Forsberg expendable. He will return to AHL Springfield, where he has a superb 17-3-0 record, 1.65 GAA and .941 save percentage.
News: Craig Anderson took an overtime loss Saturday to the Red Wings, yielding three goals on 27 shot attempts. Analysis: Craig Anderson carried a 2-1 lead into the third period, but the Wings capitalized on an early power-play opportunity and then beat the goalie again in overtime to prevent him from claiming a point for the Senators. Though it was the first time in three outings that Anderson's save percentage fell below .900, he continues to hold down a superb .928 mark for the season.
News: Drew Stafford chipped with two third-period helpers in Saturday's victory over the Islanders. Analysis: Drew Stafford also spent two minutes in the penalty box during the third period, which ending up proving fortuitous when Zemgus Girgensons was able to find the net for a shorthanded goal. The two-point outing helped Stafford tie Girgensons for second on the team in scoring this season with 19 points.
News: Josh Gorges was credited with two assists in Saturday's come-from-behind shootout victory over the Islanders. Analysis: Both of the helpers were of the secondary variety, with one coming on the penalty kill. Perhaps the most trusted defender on the Buffalo roster, Josh Gorges has seen over 26 minutes of ice time in two straight contests and should continue to hold down a spot on the team's top pairing. However, both this season and historically, he's never been much of a contributor on the offense end, limiting his utility in the fantasy realm.
News: Jason Pominville potted a goal and added an assist -- his 25th and 26th points of the season -- in a 4-3 OT loss to the Jets on Saturday. Analysis: That's eight points over the last six games for Jason Pominville, who has upped his shot total to 117 on the year in the process. It's disappointing that the Wild have managed just a single win against the lowly Coyotes during Pommer's streak, but owners surely won't mind. Keep him active.
