2/21/2017 Matt Murray, Pit, G
Murray bounced back from Sunday's shaky start to log 29 saves in Pittsburgh's 3-1 win at Carolina on Tuesday.

Analysis: The impressive young goaltender was back in good form two days after allowing four goals on 23 shots in a loss to Detroit. Murray owns a 1.64 GAA and a .944 save percentage over his last six starts, yielding two goals or less in five of those outings.
2/21/2017 Pavel Zacha, NJ, C
Zacha was hurt on a collision with Ottawa's Derick Brassard in the second period Tuesday, went to the dressing room, and never returned.

Analysis: After getting his season off to a painfully slow start, the rookie has discovered his scoring touch of late. Six of Zacha's eight goals have come during a 15-game stretch since Jan. 17.
2/21/2017 Cory Schneider, NJ, G
Schneider stopped 21 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Senators on Tuesday.

Analysis: He has a 1.87 GAA over his last seven starts but is just 4-3-0 over that span.
2/21/2017 Craig Anderson, Ott, G
Anderson finished with 29 saves in a 2-1 win at New Jersey on Tuesday.

Analysis: Anderson is 3-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA since returning to the Senators after a two-month absence to be with his wife, who is battling cancer.
2/21/2017 Travis Zajac, NJ, C
Zajac scored his 12th goal Tuesday against the Senators.

Analysis: Zajac isn't an elite offensive player by any means, though he has recorded three goals and four assists over an eight-game stretch.
2/21/2017 Cal Clutterbuck, NYI, RW
Clutterbuck was hurt Tuesday, and did not return for the third period.

Analysis: He was playing his first game after missing nine because of a lower-body injury. Coach Doug Weight said "it's precautionary."
2/21/2017 Casey Cizikas, NYI, C
On Tuesday, Cizikas skated to the bench late in the period with his left glove off and showed his hand to the team's training staff before heading to the dressing room.

Analysis: He did not return to action, and coach Doug Weight said Cizikas would be evaluated Wednesday.
2/21/2017 Kyle Palmieri, NJ, RW
Palmieri recorded his 20th assist Tuesday against Ottawa.

Analysis: He has eight goals and six assists in his last 18 games.
2/21/2017 Kyle Turris, Ott, C
Turris scored his 20th goal Tuesday in New Jersey.

Analysis: It's the third time he's reached 20 goals in the past four seasons. Turris, who scored a career-best 26 times in 2013-14, has two goals and three assists in his last four games.
2/21/2017 Dion Phaneuf, Ott, D
Phaneuf had an assist against the Devils on Tuesday.

Analysis: He has three goals and three assists in his last seven games.
2/21/2017 Erik Karlsson, Ott, D
Karlsson scored his 10th goal Tuesday against the Devils.

Analysis: The star defenseman has two goals and six assists during a six-game point streak.
2/21/2017 Derick Brassard, Ott, C
Brassard had an assist Tuesday in New Jersey to extend his point streak to four games.

Analysis: He has two goals and four assists over that span.
2/21/2017 Carey Price, Mon, G
After coming up with 28 saves - including a sprawling stop in the closing moments of overtime - Price turned back four of five skaters in the shootout to help the Canadiens to Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

Analysis: Montreal's world-class goaltender appears to be out of his midseason slump, as he's stopped 58 of 62 shots over his last two starts. Price was 6-10-3 with an uncharacteristic 3.20 goals-against average over his previous 19 assignments.
2/21/2017 Paul Ladue, LA, D
Ladue is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Analysis: Since being called up earlier this month, Ladue has two assists in five games.
2/21/2017 Keegan Lowe, Car, D
The Carolina Hurricanes acquired defenseman Philip Samuelsson from the Montreal Canadiens for Lowe, the teams announced Tuesday.

Analysis: Lowe last played in the NHL with the Hurricanes in the 2014-15 season. The former third-round pick (73rd overall) in the 2011 draft has three goals and nine assists with the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL this season.
2/21/2017 Philip Samuelsson, Mon, D
The Carolina Hurricanes acquired defenseman Philip Samuelsson from the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Keegan Lowe, the teams announced Tuesday.

Analysis: Samuelsson, 25, has not played in an NHL game this season, but has one goal and four assists in 40 games with the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.
2/21/2017 Nick Bonino, Pit, C
Bonino didn't play Tuesday against the Hurricanes due to an illness.

Analysis: This doesn't bode well for a Penguins power play that has been struggling for about a month.
2/20/2017 John Gibson, Anh, G
Gibson stopped all 14 shots he faced in relief of an ineffective Jonathan Bernier during the Ducks' 3-2 loss at Arizona on Monday.

Analysis: Gibson was supposed to have the night off after registering a 24-save shutout against Los Angeles on Sunday, but was pressed into service after Bernier permitted three first-period goals and nearly helped Anaheim overcome a 3-0 deficit. He now sports a terrific 0.83 goals-against average over his last four appearances.
2/20/2017 Ryan Getzlaf, Anh, C
Getzlaf recorded both Anaheim goals in Monday's 3-2 loss at Arizona.

Analysis: It's the Anaheim captain's first multi-goal effort since March 11, 2015. Though Getzlaf has scored just 11 times this season and had 13 in 2015-16, he's still one of the game's premier assist men. His 185 helpers since 2013-14 are the fifth-most in the league over that time frame.
2/20/2017 Christian Dvorak, Ari, C
Dvorak scored 2:02 into Monday's game to set the tone for the Coyotes' 3-2 win over Anaheim.

Analysis: After getting his rookie campaign off to a very slow start, Dvorak has heated up in February. The 21-year-old has six goals, three assists and a plus-6 rating in nine games this month and is looking like a player to keep an eye on for fantasy purposes.
