Canes' Khudobin Stops 30 Shots In Loss
Anton Khudobin, G, CAR
12:55 PM
News: Anton Khudobin stopped 30 of the 31 shots he faced in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Anton Khudobin was great Sunday, but got no offensive support in a 1-0 loss. The 28-year-old is still searching for his first win this season, posting an 0-8-2 record, to go with a .900 save percentage and 2.91 GAA. Considering the Hurricanes sit at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with just 22 points, it's hard to see Khudobin piling up the wins anytime soon. The backup to Cam Ward won't provide much fantasy value unless the Hurricanes get their season back on track.

Cam Talbot
Rangers' Talbot Blanks Hurricanes
Cam Talbot, G, NYR
12:41 PM
News: Cam Talbot pitched an 18-save shutout in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: Cam Talbot has been outstanding recently, recording a shutout in three of his past four games. The 27-year-old is now 3-3-1 on the season with an impressive .928 save percentage and 2.02 GAA. He has been one of the best backups this season and is a great fantasy option whenever starter Henrik Lundqvist gets the night off.

Brian Gionta
Sabres' Gionta Questionable For Tuesday
Brian Gionta, RW, BUF
10:38 AM
News: Brian Gionta left Sunday's game against Boston and may not play Tuesday, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Brian Gionta took a hit to the head from Boston defenseman Matt Bartkowski and left the game. The Sabres captain admitted he still didn't feel quite right Monday and is questionable for Tuesday. With the league entering a break Wednesday, the Sabres may hold Gionta out of the lineup for precautionary reasons. He's considered a game-time decision.

Marcus Foligno
Sabres' Foligno To Miss Time
Marcus Foligno, LW, BUF
10:35 AM
News: Marcus Foligno hurt his hand against Boston on Sunday, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Marcus Foligno hurt his hand after a fight with Matt Bartkowski, who hit Sabres captain Brian Gionta with a hit to the head and was later handed a game misconduct. It's been a tough winter for the Sabres, who are playing their best hockey this year but now have 10 players out with injury or illness. Foligno likely hurt his hand after punching Bartkowski's helmet and is expected to be out "a while." The big forward has nine points in 28 games this season and will likely be sidelined until January. No word on exactly what is wrong with the hand, though.

Cory Schneider
Devils' Schneider Expects To Start Tuesday
Cory Schneider, G, NJ
10:16 AM
News: Cory Schneider believes he will start Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Cory Schneider has hit a rough patch in net recently, losing each of his last four starts. His team has given him little support offensively, being shut out in two of the four contests. If he indeed starts Tuesday, the netminder will face a Hurricanes team averaging the second-least goals per game this season.

Lee Stempniak
Rangers' Stempniak Dealing With Mumps
Lee Stempniak, RW, NYR
10:08 AM
News: Lee Stempniak has been confirmed to have a case of the mumps, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Lee Stempniak underwent testing for the virus over the weekend, and now has a confirmed case. He will skate on his own Monday and will skate with the Rangers on Tuesday, however, which could indicate he hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Capitals.

Pekka Rinne
Press Go Back To The Well With Rinne
Pekka Rinne, G, NSH
9:34 AM
News: Pekka Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at Monday's skate and is expected to start against Columbus, according to Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean.
Analysis: With Sergei Bobrovsky expected to start for the Blue Jackets, this is one of the best goalie matchups you'll see in hockey. You're starting Pekka Rinne and his 21 wins, 1.87 GAA at pretty much every opportunity unless we can find a good reason to tell you otherwise.

Jimmy Howard
Jimmy Howard (Groin) Leaves Practice Early
Jimmy Howard, G, DET
9:34 AM
News: Jimmy Howard (groin) left practice early Monday, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: The implication is that Jimmy Howard will not likely be available to play Tuesday. Howard was already practicing aside from the rest of the team before leaving.

Jeff Zatkoff
Pens To Recall Zatkoff
Jeff Zatkoff, G, PIT
9:33 AM
News: Coach Mike Johnston indicated Jeff Zatkoff will be recalled before Monday's game against the Panthers, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Jeff Zatkoff will be the backup for at least Monday's game with Thomas Greiss having been sent back to Pittsburgh to undergo testing for the mumps. Marc-Andre Fleury will almost certainly receive the start in net, but Zatkoff will be the goalie on the bench in the case of an emergency. The 27-year-old netminder has a 10-5-1 record witha 1.77 GAA and .926 save percentage with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season.

Thomas Greiss
Penguins' Greiss Undergoes Further Tests For Mumps
Thomas Greiss, G, PIT
9:16 AM
News: Thomas Greiss is being tested for the mumps and will not be available for Monday's game against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of The Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss tested negative for the mumps just a few days ago, but it appears he is not out of the woods just yet. With Greiss unavailable Monday, Jeff Zatkoff is expected to be recalled to fill the backup duties behind Marc-Andre Fleury.
