Date Player
3/25/2017 Craig Anderson, Ott, G
Anderson stopped just 21 shots in Ottawa's 3-1 loss at rival Montreal on Saturday.

Analysis: The veteran netminder is in a bit of a rut, having lost three of his last four starts and allowing three or more goals in each of those defeats. Prior to that sluggish stretch, Anderson posted a 1.67 goals-against average and .940 save percentage in winning six straight starts.
3/25/2017 Mike Hoffman, Ott, LW
Hoffman assisted on the Senators' lone goal in Saturday's loss at Montreal to extend his point streak to six games.

Analysis: Hoffman has now recorded at least one point in 14 of his last 18 outings. Though he's netted only four goals over that stretch, the forward has delivered 14 assists and is a plus-9.
3/25/2017 Shea Weber, Mon, D
Weber had a power-play goal in the first period to help the Canadiens defeat Ottawa on Saturday.

Analysis: Twelve of Weber's 17 goals have come on the power play, tops among NHL defensemen. The accomplished veteran trails only San Jose's Brent Burns for the most overall goals from a blueliner this season as well.
3/25/2017 Carey Price, Mon, G
Price bounced back from a shaky last start to deliver 31 saves in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Ottawa.

Analysis: Price, who stopped just 19 of 22 shots in Thursday's loss to Carolina, has now beaten the rival Senators three times in a span of eight days and has yielded just five goals in those wins. He's been pretty good against most everyone else as well, sporting a 9-2-0 record and a sparkling 1.53 goals-against average over his last 11 starts.
3/25/2017 Andrei Markov, Mon, D
Markov played a major role in the Canadiens' 3-1 win over rival Ottawa on Saturday, scoring a pair of goals and adding an assist.

Analysis: This one was hard to see coming, as Markov entered the matchup with just two goals in his previous 39 games and last scored twice in a contest on Jan. 11, 2014. The 38-year-old defenseman has remained a solid source of assists, having notched six over his last 10 games.
3/25/2017 Connor Brown, Tor, RW
Brown scored in a second straight game during the Maple Leafs' 5-2 loss at Buffalo on Saturday.

Analysis: Though he isn't getting nearly as much attention as Toronto's other young players, the 23-year-old Brown has put together a fine rookie season with 18 goals and 32 points over 74 games.
3/25/2017 Auston Matthews, Tor, C
Matthews scored his 34th goal of the season in Saturday's loss at Buffalo, tying a Maple Leafs' rookie record set by Wendel Clark in 1985-86.

Analysis: The goal also extended Matthews' point streak to five games, during which he's scored three times and logged three assists to give him 61 points through 74 games. In case you haven't figured it out, the kid's the real deal.
3/25/2017 William Nylander, Tor, C
Nylander assisted on Auston Matthews' second-period goal in Saturday's loss at Buffalo to stretch his career-high point streak to 11 games.

Analysis: The 20-year-old has compiled four goals and nine assists during the streak, the longest by a rookie in Leafs' history. Nylander had scored in three straight games leading into Saturday's matchup.
3/25/2017 Robin Lehner, Buf, G
Lehner helped the Sabres to Saturday's 5-2 win over Toronto by coming up with 32 saves.

Analysis: The Swede has now recorded 31 or more saves in six consecutive starts. Though he's won only twice during that stretch, Lehner owns a 2.02 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage over his last four outings.
3/25/2017 Johnny Gaudreau, Cgy, LW
Gaudreau had two assists Saturday.

Analysis: He has six assists over a four-game stretch.
3/25/2017 Sean Monahan, Cgy, C
Monahan scored with 3 seconds left in overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames past the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Saturday night.

Analysis: He has three goals and three assists in four games.
3/25/2017 Chris Tierney, SJ, C
Tierney is out with an upper-body injury.

Analysis: He has eight points in his last 43 games.
3/25/2017 Dmitry Kulikov, Buf, D
Kulikov made a successful return to the ice by recording a goal and an assist in the Sabres' 5-2 win over Toronto on Saturday.

Analysis: The defenseman had been sidelined the past three weeks with an upper-body injury. Saturday's output matched Kulikov's entire point total through his first 39 games as a Sabre, so perhaps he'll able to finish a disappointing season on a positive note.
3/25/2017 Ryan O'Reilly, Buf, C
O'Reilly contributed a goal and an assist to the Sabres' 5-2 win over Toronto on Saturday.

Analysis: It's the center's first multi-point outing since March 2. O'Reilly entered the contest in a bit of a cold spell, having produced just one goal and two assists over his previous seven games.
3/25/2017 Jack Eichel, Buf, C
Eichel led the Sabres to Saturday's 5-2 win over Toronto by recording two goals and an assist.

Analysis: The second-year standout remains on a major roll, having racked up 10 goals in his last 14 contests and 30 points (11 goals, 19 assists) in 23 games since Feb. 7. Though the Sabres are going through another disappointing season, Eichel's play is at least providing lots of hope for the future.
3/25/2017 Frederik Andersen, Tor, G
Andersen has exited Saturday with an apparent upper body injury.

Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock had no immediate update on Andersen's injury, saying the player would have to first undergo tests. Andersen had posted a 2.00 goals-against average during a 6-2-2 stretch heading into Saturday's game.
3/25/2017 Patrick Sharp, Dal, LW
Sharp will reportedly have season-ending surgery on his hip.

Analysis: Sharp had just eight goals and 10 assists in 48 games this season.
3/25/2017 Ryan Suter, Min, D
Suter had a goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.

Analysis: Suter's goal was hist first since Feb. 16 and just hist fourth point in his last 16 games. He is also a minus-3 in his last 16 after being a plus-35 in his first 58 contests.
3/25/2017 Alexander Wennberg, Cls, C
Wennberg scored his 13th goal of the season in Friday's 1-0 win over the Flyers.

Analysis: Wenneberg had gone 12 straight games without a goal, but when he does score, he makes them count. Five of his goals have been game-winners.
3/25/2017 Sergei Bobrovsky, Cls, G
Bobrovsky made 36 saves in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Flyers.

Analysis: It was Bobrovsky's seventh shutout of the season and 19th of his career. He leads the league with 40 wins and has been particularly impressive since the Blue Jackets' bye week, going 9-0-2 with a 1.08 GAA and four shutouts. He's been peppered with at least 34 shots in four straight games and has stopped all but three of them.
