News: Brian Elliott will start in goal Sunday against the Wild, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Analysis: Ryan Miller will get a breather in the second half a back-to-back set, after he extended his record with St. Louis to 4-0 with a win over the Avalanche on Saturday. Brian Elliott was hit just above the mouth by a puck during the third period of Saturday's game and was forced to leave the bench, but he clearly didn't suffer any sort of serious injury.
News: Mathieu Perreault (upper body) won't play Monday against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Analysis: The report adds that Mathieu Perreault -- who is currently on the Ducks' IR list -- appears to be dealing with a sprained thumb or wrist. In 52 games with the team to date, Perreault has recorded 12 goals and 30 points.
News: Luca Sbisa (knee) won't play Monday against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Analysis: Luca Sbisa is dealing with a left knee injury that he sustained Friday against the Penguins. With two assists in 17 games to date to go along with a minus-7 rating, Sbisa's fantasy impact thus far has been limited to the 35 PIM he has recorded in that span.
News: A post-game scoring change resulted in a goal that had been credited to Carl Soderberg in Sunday's win over the Panthers going to Anrej Meszaros. Analysis: While Carl Soderberg owners lose out as a result of the change, the fact remains that Soderberg -- in his first full season with the B's -- has picked up the pace of late, having notched six points (including an assist Sunday) in seven games since the Bruins' return from the Olympic break.
News: Corey Crawford made 20 saves on 21 shots in a win over the Sabres on Sunday. Analysis: Corey Crawford picked up his 25th win in this game, and he's now in the top 10 in wins and GAA. He has let in only one goal in three of his last four starts.
News: Jhonas Enroth made 29 saves on 31 shots in a loss to the Blackhawks on Sunday. Analysis: Jhonas Enroth has played well recently, as he has not had a save percentage worse than .923 in his last four starts. He still only has four wins, but otherwise there is potential here.
News: Cory Conacher, playing his first game with the Sabres, played 15:02 and picked up an assist. Analysis: Cory Conacher was waived by the Senators, but playing for Buffalo, there is certainly the opportunity for playing time. He also played 3:28 on the power-play, which is encouraging.
News: Beau Bennett (wrist) hopes to return to action for the Penguins in the next week and a half. Analysis: Beau Bennett had experienced a setback in his recovery from a wrist injury, but the report encouragingly notes that he participated in a full team practice Sunday.
News: Patrice Bergeron scored a power-play game-winner Sunday against the Panthers. He also picked up two assists and was a plus-2. Analysis: Patrice Bergeron's numbers are a bit down the season, as he only has 43 points so far, although with 18 goals he's closing in on his career high. However, he is a plus-30, which is third best in the NHL, so there is added fantasy value there.
News: Jimmy Hayes lit the lamp twice Sunday against the Bruins. Analysis: Jimmy Hayes has set a career high in goals, and tied his career high in points. However, all that took was seven goals and nine points, so he's not likely to contribute to any fantasy team.
