Goalie Nods: Anderson returns for Ottawa

Anderson makes his first start in over a month

Craig Anderson will make his first start since Jan. 21 when the Ottawa Senators play host to the Calgary Flames tonight. Anderson suffered a bruise to his blocker hand during a 4-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs and hasn’t played since. The 33-year-old is 13-11-7 this season to go along with a 2.37 G.A.A. and a .927 save percentage.

Karri Ramo gets the nod for the Flames.


Oilers at Hurricanes: Richard Bachman vs. Cam Ward

Flyers at Devils: Steve Mason vs. Keith Kinkaid

Avalanche at Wild: Semyon Varlamov vs. Devan Dubnyk (unconfirmed)

Rangers at Blackhawks: Cam Talbot vs. Corey Crawford

Goalie nods: Dubnyk to make 23rd straight start


All the latest from the blue paint…

Devan stays busy

More of the same for Minnesota tonight — Devan Dubnyk will start when the Wild take on the Hurricanes in Carolina.

Tonight will mark Dubnyk’s 23rd straight start, a stretch in which he’s showed zero signs of fatigue or slowing down. He’s gone 17-3-1 during his time with the Wild, posting a 1.62 GAA, .939 save percentage and five shutouts.

At this stage — given his stellar play and heavy workload — one has to wonder if Dubnyk could slide into Vezina contention as one of the three finalists. The only category he’s not among the league leaders is wins (26), but is tied for 10th overall, which isn’t too shabby.

For Carolina, Anton Khudobin will be in goal.


Jackets at Devils: Sergei Bobrovsky vs. Cory Schneider

Sabres at Sens: Chad Johnson vs. Andrew Hammond

Flames at Wings: Jonas Hiller vs. Jimmy Howard

Oilers at ‘Hawks: Ben Scrivens vs. Corey Crawford

Pens at Ducks: Marc-Andre Fleury (probable) vs. Frederik Andersen (probable)

Goalie nods: Markstrom makes season debut for Canucks

Jacob Markstrom

All the latest from the blue paint…

Vancouver goes with Markstrom

There’ll be plenty of eyes on the crease in Vancouver tonight as Jacob Markstrom makes his season debut against the Sharks.

Markstrom, a former touted prospect with Florida that came to the Canucks as part of the Roberto Luongo trade, has spent all of this season in AHL Utica and revived his career, going 17-7-2 with a 1.95 GAA and .932 save percentage, earning a spot in the All-Star Game.

Markstrom was recalled last week after Ryan Miller went down to injury, and served as Eddie Lack’s backup. Tonight, he’ll play in his first NHL game since April of 2014.

No word yet on who’ll start for San Jose. Alex Stalock played last night and shut out the Habs, so the Sharks could turn to Antti Niemi.


Preds at Devils: Carter Hutton (probable) vs. Cory Schneider

Flames at Flyers: Karri Ramo vs. Steve Mason

Caps at Jackets: Braden Holtby vs. Sergei Bobrovsky

Sabres at Bolts: Anders Lindback vs. Ben Bishop

Leafs at Panthers: Jonathan Bernier vs. Roberto Luongo

Sens at Wild: Andrew Hammond vs. Devan Dubnyk (probable)

Isles at Stars: Jaroslav Halak vs. Kari Lehtonen (probable)

Mason looks for his first win vs. Rangers

Steve Mason will make his first start since Feb. 8 tonight when the Flyers play host to the New York Rangers. Mason allowed one goal on nine shots in relief of Rob Zepp on Thursday night. Mason is 0-2-0 with a 2.59 G.A.A. and .914 save percentage in two starts against New York.

Cam Talbot, who has shutout the Flyers twice this season, gets the nod for the Rangers.


Hurricanes at Islanders: Cam Ward vs. Chad Johnson

Coyotes at Bruins: Mike Smith vs. Tuukka Rask

Maple Leafs at Canadiens: Jonathan Bernier vs. Carey Price

Video: Ryan Spooner’s first NHL goal gives Bruins OT win over Devils

Boston Bruins v San Jose Sharks

It was a memorable individual moment, and an important one for the Boston Bruins.

Bruins forward Ryan Spooner, playing in his 35th career NHL game, finally scored his first career NHL goal. And it turned out to be the overtime winner, as the Bruins defeated the New Jersey Devils by a final score of 3-2, after letting go of a two-goal lead early in the third period.

Spooner, selected by the Bruins in the second round of the 2010 NHL Draft, snapped a wrist shot that beat Cory Schneider. The win gives Boston a four-point lead over the Florida Panthers for the final Wild Card spot in the East.
