12/13/2017 Devan Dubnyk, Min, G
Dubnyk left after the first period Tuesday after aggravating a lower-body injury.

Analysis: The team wouldn't speculate on the severity of the injury to Dubnyk, who stopped all 10 shots he faced to drop his GAA to 2.69. He did not practice Wednesday.
12/13/2017 Brayden Point, TB, C
Point has to be one of the hottest players in the league after scoring again in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Blues.

Analysis: He's now scored in four straight games and has added three assists over his last five. He has 13 goals and 28 points on the season.
12/13/2017 Nikita Kucherov, TB, RW
Kucherov stepped up again with a goal in Tampa's 3-0 win over the Blues.

Analysis: Kucherov has scored in back-to-back games and has four goals in his last five contests.
12/13/2017 Tyler Johnson, TB, C
Johnson continued his recent tear, finishing with a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Blues.

Analysis: Johnson has seven goals and 20 points on the season and three goals and six assists over his last five games.
12/13/2017 John Carlson, Was, D
Carlson scored his third goal of the season and had four penalty minutes while finishing at a plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

Analysis: Carlson scored his first goal in 15 games. All three of his goals this season and 13 of his 16 points since the beginning of November have come at home.
12/13/2017 Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB, G
Vasilevskiy erased the memory of a bad outing in St. Louis with one solid performance. Vasilevskiy stopped 32 shots, Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point scored and the Lightning beat the St. Louis Blues 3-0 on Tuesday night in a matchup of the NHL's top two teams.

Analysis: It was Vasilevskiy's third shutout of the season and the seventh of his career. The 23-year-old Vasilevskiy gave up four goals on 16 shots and was pulled from a 5-4 loss at St. Louis last December.
12/13/2017 Evgeny Kuznetsov, Was, C
Kuznetsov had three assists and two penalty minutes while posting a plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

Analysis: Kuznetsov avoided going three straight games without a point for the first time this season and moved past Alex Ovechkin for the team lead with 34.
12/13/2017 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Edm, C
Nugent-Hopkins stayed hot with another goal in Tuesday's 7-2 win over Columbus.

Analysis: Nugent-Hopkins has totaled four goals with one assist over his last seven games.
12/13/2017 Milan Lucic, Edm, LW
Lucic scored another goal in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

Analysis: Lucic has come alive with three goals and three assists over his last five games.
12/13/2017 Mark Letestu, Edm, C
Letestu had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-2 win at Columbus.

Analysis: Letestu has been productive of late with three goals and five assists in his seven games.
12/13/2017 Connor McDavid, Edm, C
McDavid shined with a goal and three assists in Tuesday's 7-2 win over Columbus.

Analysis: McDavid has 16 points in his last 11 games.
12/13/2017 Sergei Bobrovsky, Cls, G
When Edmonton scored the third goal on Bobrovsky, Columbus' exasperated net-minder fell on his back and stared up at the lights while the Oilers celebrated. It was that kind of night for Bobrovsky and for the Blue Jackets, who rarely take a loss like the 7-2 beating dispensed by Edmonton on Tuesday night.

Analysis: The Oilers chased Bobrovsky, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, from the game at the end of the second period. He had been 8-4-0 with a 1.74 goals-against average in his previous 12 starts.
12/13/2017 Semyon Varlamov, Col, G
Varlamov stopped 22 of 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss at Washington.

Analysis: Being beaten by his former team capped an ugly road trip for Varlamov, who started three times during the Avs' four-game trek and posted a 3.70 GAA. He has a dreadful .890 save percentage on the road this season compared to .917 at home, where Colorado plays its next three games and Varlamov has a 5-2-1 record.
12/13/2017 Colin Wilson, Col, RW
Wilson scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's loss at Washington.

Analysis: Wilson has scored twice in three games to pull within two goals of 100 for his career. He's posted a plus-1 in all three games.
12/13/2017 Braden Holtby, Was, G
Holtby made 22 saves in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

Analysis: Holtby would normally get one of back-to-back games off, but he was pulled 1:34 into the second period of Monday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders. He allowed all three goals, and coach Barry Trotz opted to put him right back in the saddle against Colorado.
12/13/2017 Brian Gibbons, NJ, LW
Gibbons had a short-handed goal and an assist in Tuesday's win over the Kings.

Analysis: Gibbons is tied for the league lead with three short-handed goals after not having one in his first two NHL seasons. He tops the Devils with 12 goals after ending a season-worst six-game drought.
12/13/2017 Jonathan Quick, LA, G
Quick stopped a mere 21 of 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Devils.

Analysis: It was the worst performance of the season for Quick, who hadn't allowed five goals in a game since February, and it seemingly came out of nowhere. Quick had won his previous six starts behind and didn't surrender more than two goals in any of them.
12/13/2017 Cory Schneider, NJ, G
Schneider needed to make just 16 saves as he helped the Devils snap the Kings' eight-game winning streak in Tuesday's 5-1 victory.

Analysis: Schneider lost his shutout bid when Torrey Mitchell deflected an Alec Martinez shot into the net at 12:04 of the third period. It was the third time in four starts Schneider has allowed only one goal.
12/13/2017 Taylor Hall, NJ, LW
Hall scored on the power play and at even strength in Tuesday's win over the Kings, but he left the game with an unspecified injury.

Analysis: Hall came up limping after being checked hard into the boards by Kings defenseman Kurtis MacDermid seven minutes into the third. Though he remained on the ice to play the next shift, Hall soon shut it down and did not finish the game. Devils coach John Hynes termed the play "a little bit of a dangerous hit" and said Hall will be evaluated Wednesday by the team's medical personnel.
12/13/2017 Kyle Okposo, Buf, RW
Okposo scored his fifth goal of the season Tuesday.

Analysis: Maybe Okposo is finally getting his season on track. He's scored twice in three games after a 12-game span in which he had only one goal. He still has only one power-play goal after having seven in each of the past two seasons.
