Take from this what you will – but Martin St. Louis intrigues the Penguins according to this TB blog.

 

After stopping 46 of 48 shots last night, Jaroslav Halak picked up the win. With Price's struggles, the Habs need Halak to take over for now – Price, though nobody will say it, I believe is still battling ankle issues.

 

Viktor Kozlov will not play today and probably not Sunday either. He is battling a groin injury.

 

Alexander Semin, however, will be in the lineup and has practiced with Ovy and Backstrom to form a powerhouse line.

 

The Pens got their preview of Luca Caputi and all in all it was a good one. He scored on his first shift and not since, but he showed promise. The Pens sent him down to WBS because Ruslan Fedotenko is ready to return.

 

MIN prospect rearguard Tyler Cuma underwent knee surgery and is out for the season.

The shutout is Clemmy's second in a row. Brodeur will practice with the team this weekend and is targetting a Feb. 26 return.

 

Nathan Gerbe played over 19 minutes for the Sabres last night, which really impresses me. What impresses me the most is that Lindy Ruff is playing him properly, unlike a lot of NHL coaches (I'm looking at you Hitchcock, Anderson…etc). What does not impress me is that Gerbe is pointless in the two games since his recall. He can only do that for so long before he stops getting this kind of ice time. Gerbe is ranked 17th on my fantasy prospects list.

 

Andrej Sekera returned to the BUF lineup, but saw little PP time.

The Coyotes have activated Peter Mueller off the IR.

 

Toronto's Jeremy Williams got through waivers and has been assigned to the Marlies (add him to the list of great players you can see March 7!)

 

Teddy Purcell has 10 points in his last six AHL games. He is ranked 14th on my fantasy prospects list. I really loved his outlook for this season, and since he (barely) missed being a full timer and yet has continu
