Craig Anderson
Sens' Anderson Still Not Ready To Play

News: Craig Anderson (hand) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson seemed to be trending toward a return by facing a number of shots during practices the last few days, but there's still no clear timetable for when he might be able to play. While the lack of clarity regarding Anderson's return date is undoubtedly an annoyance for fantasy owners, the Senators have done just fine without him. In the absence of Anderson and No. 2 goalie Robin Lehner (concussion), the Senators have stumbled into a hot goalie in Andrew Hammond, who has won four straight starts while posting a 0.75 GAA.

News: Andrew Hammond will make his fifth consecutive start Saturday against the Sharks, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond has been the story of the NHL since taking over as the Senators' No. 1 goalie just over a week ago. After posting middling numbers at AHL Binghamton, Hammond has won his first four NHL starts, posting a 0.75 GAA and .976 save percentage. The matches haven't come against the dregs of the league either; he's posted shutouts his last two times out on the road against the Ducks and Kings. He'll try to continue his California dominance against the struggling Sharks, who will counter with Antti Niemi in goal.

Cam Ward
Carolina's Ward To Get Nod Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Brian Compton of reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes elected to rest Cam Ward on Friday against the Capitals so he could be honored in a pregame ceremony for his 500th career appearance in the NHL, which he made in Tuesday's win over the Flyers. Though Anton Khudobin spun his first shutout of the season in Friday's win, Ward won't be bypassed for a start, as he's been quite excellent in his own right of late. Ward has won his last three starts while conceding a total of five goals, though none of the teams he faced during that stretch were as strong as the squad he'll match up with Saturday.

Chad Johnson
Isles Tap Johnson For Saturday Start

News: Chad Johnson will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: After Jaroslav Halak received the nod a night earlier against Calgary, Chad Johnson will draw the cushier matchup of the back-to-back against the Hurricanes, who sport the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference. After struggling for much of the earlier portion of the season during his spot starts, Johnson has righted the ship in February. In his four turns this month, he's gone 2-1-1 with a 1.48 GAA and .953 save percentage.

Cam Talbot
Rangers' Talbot: 30 Saves In Loss
Cam Talbot, G, NYR
News: Cam Talbot made 30 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday night. He allowed three goals.
Analysis: It's just his first regulation loss in his last 10 starts, a span where he has gone 7-1-2. He's held the fort well while Henrik Lundqvist has been on the shelf. Continue to roll him.

Steve Mason
Flyers' Mason Makes 34 Saves In Win
Steve Mason, G, PHI
News: Steve Mason made 34 saves in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: It was his first start since returning from injury, although he was pressed into action Thursday in relief. Get him back in your blue paint if you regularly rely on him.

Jonathan Bernier
Leafs' Bernier: 19 Saves In Loss
Jonathan Bernier, G, TOR
News: Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 22 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: One of those goals had the distinct stink of Limburger cheese; unfortunately, it stood as the winner. There are several reports of teams scouting Jonathan Bernier in advance of Monday's trade deadline, so we don't even know if he'll still be in blue and white by the beginning of the week.

Carey Price
Habs' Price Is Right In Shutout Win
Carey Price, G, MON
News: Carey Price made 30 saves for his sixth shutout of the season in Saturday's 4-0 victory over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He has 12 wins in 14 starts since the All-Star break. Can you spell Hart Trophy? You know what to do.

Semyon Varlamov
Avs' Varlamov To Start Saturday
Semyon Varlamov, G, COL
News: Semyon Varlamov will get the start Saturday against the Wild.
Analysis: He gave up four goals on 36 shots but escaped with a win in Friday's game against the Stars. Semyon Varlamov has now won three of his last four games despite giving up 13 goals over that span, so there are reasons to be cautious about relying on the Avs' goalkeeper in daily formats.

Curtis McElhinney
Jackets' McElhinney: Allows Single Goal In Loss
Curtis McElhinney, G, CLB
News: Curtis McElhinney made 17 saves in a 2-0 loss to the Devils on Saturday night. He allowed just one goal.
Analysis: He got no support from his mates, who peppered Cory Schneider with pucks, but just couldn't solve him. Sergei Bobrovsky is back from the IR, so expect Curtis McElhinney to be picking splinters out of his pants starting immediately.
