Curtis McElhinney
Maple Leafs' Curtis McElhinney: Will start Tuesday
Curtis McElhinney, G, TOR
11:13 AM
News: McElhinney will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against Florida, David Alter of The Athletic reports.

The backup hasn't been very sharp lately, with an .885 save percentage and 3.93 GAA in his last four games. The Panthers are near the bottom of the league, ranking 23rd with 2.54 goals per game, so McElhinney will get a chance to right the ship Tuesday.

Tuukka Rask
Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Logs full practice Monday
Tuukka Rask, G, BOS
10:57 AM
News: Rask (lower body) was able to practice fully Monday, CSN's Joe Haggerty reports.

Per the report, Rask -- who was unavailable for Saturday's win over the Islanders -- "looks to be feeling better" at this stage. Supporting that notion is that fellow goalie Zane McIntyre has been returned to AHL Providence. That said, it's unclear if he Rask will draw the assignment in net Tuesday against the Preds, with backup Anton Khudobin having won his fifth straight start on Saturday.

Analysis: 

Jake Allen
Blues' Jake Allen: In net Monday
Jake Allen, G, STL
10:54 AM
News: Allen will be the starting goaltender for Monday's game against Arizona, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

The 26-year-old has been hot lately, notching a .950 save percentage and 1.49 GAA in his last six games. The Coyotes are 27th in the league with 2.24 goals per game, so Allen will be in prime position to continue his hot streak.

Analysis: 

Petr Mrazek
Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Gets the nod Monday
Petr Mrazek, G, DET
10:42 AM
News: Mrazek will be between the pipes for Monday's contest in Carolina, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.

The Czech goaltender has looked good in his last two outings, stopping 58 of 62 shots, but he picked up a loss and an overtime loss in those two games. The Hurricanes are middle of the pack offensively with 2.68 goals per game, so Mrazek will have a solid shot at playing well again Monday.

Analysis: 

Eddie Lack
Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Will start Monday
Eddie Lack, G, CAR
10:21 AM
News: Lack will be in the crease for Monday's game against Detroit.

Lack is in the midst of a hot streak with a .954 save percentage and 1.35 GAA in his last four games. Considering Detroit ranks near the bottom of the NHL in scoring with 2.38 goals per game, Lack's chances of continuing his tear are high.

Analysis: 

Robin Lehner
Sabres' Robin Lehner: Gets starting nod Monday
Robin Lehner, G, BUF
10:17 AM
News: Lehner will tend the twine against the Panthers on Monday.

Lehner appears to have stepped up his game of late, as he has posted a 2-1-0 record with a .942 save percentage in his last three outings -- well above his season numbers of 21-23-8 and .922. The Sabres are third worst in the league on the penalty kill -- 77.2 percent -- so it could be a tough matchup for the netminder if his teammates can't stay out of the box.

Analysis: 

Frederik Andersen
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Practices Monday
Frederik Andersen, G, TOR
10:13 AM
News: After skating on his own with goalie coach Steve Brier, Andersen (upper body) stayed on the ice and participated in practice, David Alter of The Athletic reports.

Andersen exited Saturday's game early due to the upper-body issue, so his presence at Monday's morning skate comes as a positive sign of his status moving forward. The team will likely provide further information on the netminder in the near future, potentially placing a timeline on his return. Garret Sparks was recalled from the team's AHL affiliate Monday, but was just watching during the practice session as Andersen manned his net.

Analysis: 

Andrei Vasilevskiy
Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Will tend twine Monday
Andrei Vasilevskiy, G, TB
10:13 AM
News: Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes for Monday's matchup with Chicago, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The youngster has played well in March as the Lightning still fight to stay in the playoff race, notching a .929 save percentage and 2.28 GAA in 10 games. Unfortunately for him, he'll need to face the Blackhawks who rank eighth in the league in goals per game with 2.95, so he will have a tough task ahead of him if he wants to keep cruising.

Analysis: 

Thomas Greiss
Islanders' Thomas Greiss: In goal Monday
Thomas Greiss, G, NYI
9:59 AM
News: Greiss will defend the cage against the Predators on Monday.

Greiss has just one win in his last four appearances, a 36-save victory over the Rangers. If the Isles are going to chase down the Bruins for the final wild-card spot, they are going to need the 31-year-old to be on top of his game. If the netminder does struggle, don't be surprised if coach Doug Weight turns to the recently recalled Jaroslav Halak to keep them in the hunt.

Analysis: 

Garret Sparks
Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Back at top level
Garret Sparks, G, TOR
9:59 AM
News: Sparks was recalled from AHL Toronto on Monday, David Alter of The Athletic reports.

Sparks hasn't played a game at the NHL level this season, but will rejoin the roster likely to back up Curtis McElhinney during Tuesday's contest against the Panthers. He probably won't see any time between the pipes during his stint with the club, leaving him with little fantasy appeal.
