News: Beau Bennett (wrist) has been cleared for full practice participation. Analysis: Beau Bennett -- who has been out since late November -- is slated to practice Monday, though it's unclear if he has a chance to be activated in advance of Tuesday's game against the Stars.
News: Kris Letang (illness) has been cleared for full practice participation.

News: Brayden Schenn scored a goal, collected two PIM, and added four hits for good measure in Sunday's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. Analysis: Brayden Schenn has stepped up his offensive game recently. In the 10 games before the Olympic break, he managed just two points and two PIM. Since that break, he's already notched five points and four PIM in just eight games. He could offer some value in deeper leagues, especially if the Flyers can continue the momentum from this weekend's wins against Pittsburgh.
News: Roberto Luongo will start in goal Sunday against the Canucks, Erin Brown of FOX Sports Florida reports. Analysis: Roberto Luongo will mind the net in search of his 22nd win of the season, and third since joining Florida.
News: Braydon Coburn went pointless in Sunday's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. Analysis: While his plus-minus rating has been gradually climbing over the last 10 games, he's got just four points and two PIM in that stretch. Even though the Flyers' defense has been playing better as of late, without consistent points or PIM, it's hard to see why Braydon Coburn warrants a start in most leagues.
News: Matt Niskanen netted his career-high 10th goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Philadelphia. Analysis: He saw 27:11 TOI, four-plus minutes more than the next closest Pittsburgh defenseman (Olli Maatta, 23:03 TOI). Matt Niskanen, an impending free agent, may be pricing himself out of Pittsburgh with his fine breakout campaign.
News: Vladimir Tarasenko will undergo surgery on his right hand, the Blues' official site reports. Analysis: The report adds that Vladimir Tarasenko -- who hurt his hand Saturday against the Preds -- will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

News: Jimmy Howard will start Sunday's game against Chicago, NHL.com reports. Analysis: Jimmy Howard -- who stopped 21 shots in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Oilers -- is slated to square off against Chicago's Corey Crawford on Sunday.
News: Jeff Zatkoff relieved Fleury on Sunday and stopped 19 of 20 Philadelphia shots. Analysis: There was a school of thought saying Jeff Zatkoff should have started the game, as Fleury was making back-to-back starts for just the second time in 2013-14. Goaltending really wasn't Pittsburgh's problem so much as lackluster special teams play. Zatkoff was officially saddled with the loss, giving him a 10-4-1 mark.
News: Zbynek Michalek, who did not take part in the Coyotes' pre-game skate, did play Saturday against Calgary skating 17:34. He was plus-1 and blocked two shots. Analysis: Zbynek Michalek is nursing some kind of injury after blocking a shot against Boston on Thursday, but was good enough to go Saturday. He should be okay for the Coyotes' upcoming game Monday against the Kings.
