News: The Senators assigned Chris Driedger to ECHL Evansville on Sunday. Analysis: Chris Driedger heads back down to the minors Sunday in a move that corresponds with the team's activation of fellow goalie Craig Anderson.
News: Jonathan Quick is slated to start Sunday's game against the Jets, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. Analysis: Jonathan Quick, who stopped 27 of 28 shots in a 1-0 shutout loss Thursday to the Senators, returns to the Kings' net Sunday to square off against Winnipeg's Michael Hutchinson.
News: Keith Aulie was placed on waivers by the Oilers on Sunday, according to the Edmonton Journal. Analysis: Keith Aulie was not in the Oilers' future plans, as he has only played 18 games this season. If he passes through waivers, he will likely be sent to AHL Oklahoma City.
News: Jake Allen is slated to start Sunday's game against the Canucks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Analysis: Jake Allen, who has given way Brian Elliott over the Blues' last two games, will look to bounce back from Tuesday's tough outing, in which he gave up five goals on 23 shots in a 5-2 loss to Montreal.
News: Jason Garrison's assist in Sunday's loss to Florida gives him six points -- all assists -- in his last seven games. Analysis: He had 20 points in his previous 51 outings, so this is a bit like winning the lottery for his owners. Take advantage of this run, but don't expect this kind of windfall to last too much longer.
News: Alex Ovechkin collected two goals and an assist in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs. Analysis: The three points temporarily bring Alex Ovechkin into a first place tie for most in the league with 65. The 29-year-old is putting up another terrific campaign this season and is showing no signs of letting up as he's back over the point-per-game pace.
News: Braden Holtby stopped all 32 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs. Analysis: It's Braden Holtby's seventh shutout of the season -- second most in the NHL behind only Marc-Andre Fleury's eight. The win also snaps a three game losing streak and gives the 25-year-old his first 30-win season in his career. Coupled with an impressive 2.16 GAA and .925 save percentage, Holtby should be rolled every game.
News: James Reimer surrendered three goals on 31 shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Capitals. Analysis: The free fall continues as the loss drops James Reimer to 1-11-0 in his last 12 outings. Jonathan Bernier will continue to see the majority of the action between the pipes anyway, but Reimer has made for a risky play whenever he does start with a 3.14 GAA and .906 save percentage.
News: Tomas Hertl may get more playing time as a center, after the Sharks traded James Sheppard to the Rangers on Sunday, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Analysis: Whether he plays left wing or center, Tomas Hertl will likely still skate on the third line. It's not entirely clear what the team plans to do, as Sharks general manager Doug Wilson merely said that the recent trade will allow the team to develop Hertl as a center. That doesn't necessarily mean Hertl will start playing center immediately.
News: James Wisniewski had a sore foot in the aftermath of Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Analysis: James Wisniewski will be evaluated when the team gets back to Columbus, ahead of Tuesday's game against the Capitals. He scored a power-play goal in Sunday's loss, and the injury didn't affect his ice time. If Wisniewski cannot play Tuesday, Jordan Leopold could join the lineup.
