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: Alex Killorn recorded five shots, four PIM and found the back of the net for the decisive tally in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes. Analysis: The third-period tally halted a 12-game goal drought for Alex Killorn, who stealthily used the Canes' Tim Gleason as a shield before getting a wrister past netminder Cam Ward. Three of Killorn's eight goals on the season have been game-winners, putting him in a tie with Ryan Callahan for the team lead in that regard.
News: Jacob Josefson is dealing with an illness, but the Devils' haven't indicated whether the mumps is a possibility, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Analysis: Jacob Josefson did play in Saturday's game against Rangers, but didn't practice Sunday which could lead to him missing Monday's game. Seth Helgeson was dressed as a forward at Sunday's practice in his place, but the Devils could make a move Monday if he is unable to go.
News: Clarke MacArthur tallied an unassisted goal in Saturday's overtime loss to the Red Wings. Analysis: The goal was the 10th of the season for Clarke MacArthur, but just his first since Dec. 2. In the nine games in between, he managed just one assist on 18 shot attempts. He deserves something of a mulligan for suffering from the flu during the middle of the stretch, but the returns have still been rather disappointing.
News: Jordan Caron was recalled from AHL Providence on Sunday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Analysis: Jordan Caron was reassigned to AHL Providence on Tuesday likely to get him some more ice time, as he hasn't seen much with the Bruins this season. He will return to the team Sunday, and would be an option if any of the team's skaters are unavailable Monday against the Red Wings.
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.
