News: Ryan Miller gave up two goals on 31 shots in Sunday's overtime loss to the Ducks. Analysis: A great outing from Ryan Miller, who is now 3-0-1 in his past three starts, stopping 93 of 98 shots in that span. With an 18-7-1 record on the season, Miller remains one of the best fantasy options in the crease. While his rate stats aren't great, Miller makes up for it with his win total-- which ranks fifth-best in the NHL. He should be in your lineup every night he gets the call.
News: Alex Burrows extended his point streak to three games Sunday, collecting an assist in a loss to Anaheim. Analysis: Alex Burrows now has four points (two goals) in his past three games, putting him at 16 points (eight goals) in 29 games on the season. While he's been inconsistent throughout the year, the 33-year-old winger should still end up with 20 goals this season, making him valuable in deeper formats.
News: Yannick Weber scored his third goal of the season, dished out two hits, blocked three shots, and picked up two PIM in Sunday's loss to Anaheim. Analysis: A solid fantasy night for Yannick Weber, who now has nine points in 29 games, to go with a plus-4 rating. The 26-year-old has offensive potential, but is only averaging 15:42 of ice time, limiting his fantasy value. He could notch 20 points this season, though, making him worthy of a look in some very deep leagues.
News: Ryan Getzlaf picked up a pair of helpers in Sunday's overtime win over the Canucks. Analysis: Ryan Getzlaf has been a monster lately, cranking out seven points (two goals) in his past four games. Three of his past four games have been multi-point outings, putting him at 42 points (12 goals) in 37 games on the season. With 90 shots on goal, a plus-11 rating, 31 PIM, and three game-winning goals, Getzlaf has been an all-around fantasy stud. On track for 90 points, Getzlaf is a must-start every night.
News: Cam Fowler scored the overtime-winning goal Sunday against the Canucks. Analysis: Cam Fowler now has five goals and 19 points in 37 games, to go with a plus-1 rating. Averaging 21:14 of ice time on Anaheim's top defensive pairing, the 23-year-old should hit the 10-goal, 40-point mark in 2014-15.

News: The Penguins recalled Brian Dumoulin from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday. Analysis: Brian Dumoulin was just sent back down to the AHL on Sunday after a stint with the Pens, but it sounds like that move was nothing more than a financial move. The blueliner has recorded one goal in seven games with Pittsburgh, and could be in the lineup against the Devils on Monday.
News: Nathan Beaulieu has been moved up to the second defensive pairing, the Montreal Gazette reports. He'll skate with Sergei Gonchar. Analysis: With the promotion, Nathan Beaulieu should get north of 20 minutes a game, including time on the power play. The seasoned Gonchar will certainly help Beaulieu's transition and hopefully give the young defenseman the advice he needs to remain a top four blue-liner.
News: Alexei Emelin has been dropped to the third defensive pairing, Hockey Inside Out reports. Analysis: The Canadiens elevated Nathan Beaulieu to the second pairing to skate alongside Sergei Gonchar, which means Alexei Emelin had to go somewhere. He's now skating with Tom Gilbert on the third pairing, but figures to still be a top hitter on the roster.
