Lightning ends road trip with a win, and a Dan Girardi scare

Said Callahan: "Everyone here knows how to play. Call it what you want. Call it entitlement,Authentic Jonathan Drouin jersey, call it getting comfortable. The good thing about this group is we know how to self-check and self-evaluate."

Girardi, he asked former Rangers teammate Anton Stralman who he modeled himself after in New York. Stralman said Girardi.,Authentic Auston Matthews jersey, is a former captain with the Rangers. Cooper said when they were going to sign Girardi in the summer, is part of that leadership group. He’s fit in perfectly on the third pairing with Braydon Coburn, in the first of a two-year, $6 million deal,Authentic Daniel Sedin jersey, and is a key cog on the penalty kill. He’s also a presence in the room and in the community. There’s a reason that Girardi, like Callahan

Teammates gravitate toward him, calling him one of the funniest guys in the room. That’s why it wasn’t a surprise for teammates to see Girardi making light of his situation between periods.

" Johnson said. "He looked like he was in a lot of pain. But he looks good now,"He’s a guy that’s going to lay everything on the line for teammates,adidas Daniel Sedin jersey, so we’ll see."

or it’ll drive him crazy., stepping in front of a rubber puck going 100 miles per hour. Girardi laughed,I remember asking Girardi what goes through his mind when he’s trying to block a shot,Authentic Nikita Kucherov jersey, saying he doesn’t think about it at all

the next time a sharpshooter winds up,It’s unclear when Girardi will be back on the ice. The next game is Tuesday at home against Carolina. But you can bet, Girardi will jump in front of it.

that’s how he’s built. That’s what’s made him so successful.", he’ll be doing the same thing,"There’s no doubt in my mind when he’s back on the ice," Callahan said. "That’s how he’s made

prospects,NHL trade deadline, Petr Mrazek

There’s no rush to sell this far ahead of the Feb. 26 deadline. As teams decide whether a playoff run is realistic, prices will go up. Look at what Ken Holland got last year for Brendan Smith (a third-round pick in 2017 and a second-round pick in 2018). Mike Green should fetch more than that; his offensive skills are exactly what a Cup-contender wants to add.

As for the prospects, the Grand Rapids Griffins are finally showing signs of playing well again after a rough first half. If the Wings need to call up someone, it will depend on the situation — if for example, the Wings see a playoff push is not realistic for them but is realistic for the Griffins, the Wings are more likely to call up a veteran and let prospects be go-to guys in a competitive situation.

Via e-mail from a Mr. Rosenthal: Petr Mrazek has not performed well as a backup and doesn’t give the team a chance to win when he plays. What are the chances the Wings waive him and make Coreau the back up? They need an effective back up to have any chance of making the playoffs.

Mrazek has struggled to adapt to the backup role, which can be challenging especially for a guy used to playing regularly. However, Mrazek has not given the Wings reason to bestow regular starts,Authentic Victor Hedman jersey, while Jimmy Howard has. Mrazek maybe had a chance to challenge Dec. 2 at Montreal (Howard had let in 10 goals the two games prior) but he didn’t look any better than his teammates that night. In the 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday, Mrazek denied an early Tampa attack while Detroit’s skaters did little to push back. Mrazek has shown he can be elite, but he set himself back last season with his attitude.

There was no market for him this summer (as evidenced by the NHL expansion draft) and he hasn’t done anything to improve his trade value. Maybe a taker materializes in the coming weeks, as half of Mrazek’s $4 million salary is gone. Regarding Jared Coreau, he has not stood out with the Griffins in the first half (2.77 goals-against average, .906 save percentage in 25 games) and he, too, had trouble last season in the NHL when he didn’t start regularly.

It was a busy night on the ice across the National Hockey League on Saturday night with 18 teams in action. In Vegas there is a thing called the 'Grand Salami', where you can wager on the total number of goals on any given night from all of the games. On Saturday, the Salami went way over the total, and when that happens you know it was a good night from a fantasy perspective. In fact, with four clubs going for six or more markers. On the flip side, 11 of the 18 teams scored three or more goals, it wasn't a banner night for goaltenders, and Saturday featured no shutouts.

Boston's Patrice Bergeron caught fire against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes, too. Ottawa's Craig Anderson received plenty of support against the league's highest-scoring offense, potting four goals with an assist and plus-4 rating, while partner in crime Brad Marchand chipped in with four helpers and a plus-4 rating. Those were the two biggest contributors for fantasy owners and DFS players, but there were many other productive players, the Tampa Bay Lightning. He needed it, as he faced 46 shots in the 6-3 victory.

Sean Couturier's magical season continues, as he bagged two more goals to get him up to 21 goals and 40 points across 41 games. His previous career best in goals was 15, back in 2014-15, and his second goal helped him to a new career best in points, besting his previous highs of 39 set in 2013-14 and 2015-16.

Claude Giroux picked up a goal and three points, his second straight multi-point outing. Since Dec. 6 he has one goal and 10 assists on the man advantage, and a total of three goals with 20 assists over the past 14 games since Dec. 6.

Paul Stastny is starting to show signs of life, picking up a goal and assist in Philadelphia. He has posted two goals, four points and a plus-4 rating in three games since flipping the calendar from 2017 to 2018 after closing out December when no goals and two assists over his final 10 games.

as he entered the game with just one goal and two points over his first 15 outings.,adidas Jonathan Drouin jersey,Ivan Barbashev picked up a goal and assist on Saturday. It doubled his overall offensive production

and his best plus-minus rating since also posting a plus-2 back on Nov. 25.,Vladimir Tarasenko picked up two assists and a plus-2 rating for his first multi-point game since Dec. 16

his former team. It is his first time with back-to-back wins since rattling off six consecutive wins from Dec. 4-16.,adidas Nikita Kucherov jersey,Brian Elliott allowed three goals on 31 shots in a victory against the Blues

Cam Ward allowed two goals on two shots in just 5:43, getting the quick hook from bench boss Bill Peters in Boston. Scott Darling wasn't much better, adidas Victor Hedman jersey,coughing up five goals on 28 shots as the Bruins were just too much.

As mentioned above, Bergeron and Marchand posted big nights,Authentic James Van Riemsdyk jersey, but they weren't the only ones. David Pastrnak recorded a power-play goal with a pair of assists with a plus-3 rating. Kevan Miller also finished with an assist,adidas Auston Matthews jersey, three hits and a plus-4 rating.

On the flip side of those big performances, there were some awful stat lines for the guys in red. Derek Ryan and Jeff Skinner were each scoreless with a minus-5 rating, while Elias Lindholm was blanked with a minus- 4.

allowing just one goal on 28 shots to pick up the victory. He improved to 9-2-3 with a 2.37 goals-against average while posting a .925 save percentage in 15 appearances.,Anton Khudobin received all the offensive support he needed in the first few minutes of the first period

It might be overlooked in the box score,adidas James Van Riemsdyk jersey, and not the sexiest fantasy stat, but Sean Kuraly won 10 of his 11 faceoffs.

Auston Matthews has been red hot since returning from a two-week absence due to an upper-body injury. He has six goals and seven points in seven games since returning. The Big Cactus remains on pace for a 40-goal season.

Brock Boeser flicked the switch for the 22nd time, burying a first-period goal to open the scoring in Toronto. He has scored at least one goal in nine of his past 13 outings, as he has come out of nowhere to lead the team in goals. He nearly had another goal, the potential game winner in overtime, but he rang it off one post, it hit the other and never crossed the line. Replay confirmed.

giving him four goals with eight points over the past nine outings.,Sam Gagner continues to play well. He posted a power-play goal

Gagner's marker on the man advantage snapped an 0-for-15 skid on the power play.
