Ryan Miller Headshot

Miller will start between the posts for Sunday's away game against the Jets, Jon Abbott of TSN reports.

Added Yesterday 7:10 pm (EST)
Miller has allowed three goals or more in each of his last four starts, posting a .897 save percentage en route to a 1-3--record over that span. He has noted problems playing on the road, so he makes for a risky play Sunday against a Winnipeg squad that is averaging 3.16 goals per game at home, good for sixth in the league.
Matt Murray Headshot

Murray is confirmed to start Sunday's game against the Flyers.

Added Yesterday 6:41 pm (EST)
As expected, Murray will be the starter in the Pittsburgh net on Sunday. He'll field pucks from a Flyers team that is averaging just 2.42 goals per game in March.
Steve Mason Headshot

Mason will guard the crease for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Added Yesterday 5:15 pm (EST)
Mason has been markedly inconsistent this season and in the recent slate of games, alternating wins and losses in his last six starts. During that span, he allowed four goals twice, but also posted a shutout and a one-goal victory. It's anyone's guess which Mason will show up Sunday against the high-powered Penguins, who are averaging 3.23 goals per game in March.
Keith Kinkaid Headshot

Kinkaid will start in net for Sunday's matchup with the Stars, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Added Yesterday 1:56 pm (EST)
Despite snagging a win during the span, Kinkaid has put up less than stellar numbers over his last three starts, recording a .889 save percentage and 3.36 GAA. He'll look to turn around the recent poor form against a Stars team that tends to struggle on the road, averaging 2.33 goals per game in away contests.
Jimmy Howard Headshot

Howard will defend the goal against the Wild on Sunday.

Added Yesterday 12:25 pm (EST)
In four starts since returning from a knee injury that kept him out almost three months, Howard has been spectacular, posting a .939 save percentage and 1.74 GAA on his way to 3-1-0 record. He and Petr Mrazek continue to alternate starts, which makes him less reliable than other goalkeeping options across the league, but his numbers certainly make him intriguing for spot starts. He'll face a collapsing Minnesota team Sunday that has lost seven of its last eight and is averaging 2.25 goals per game in March.
Shane Doan Headshot

Doan (lower body) won't play Saturday against Washington.

Added 03/25/17 3:05 pm (EST)
The Coyotes have already been eliminated from playoff contention, so there's no reason for them to rush Doan back into the lineup. The 40-year-old forward's next chance to return to game action will come Monday against the Blues.
Aaron Ekblad Headshot

Ekblad (neck) will not accompany the team on an upcoming four-game road trip, the Miami Herald reports.

Added 03/25/17 2:37 pm (EST)
Of course, this news also rules out the playmaking defenseman for Saturday's home contest against the Blackhawks. "He's feeling good but we're not going to rush him, be more patient with him," Panthers coach and GM Tom Rowe said. This latest injury -- Ekblad recently overcame a concussion -- comes at an awful time since it's around the fantasy hockey playoffs. Still not on IR, he will be shooting for an April 3 return against the Habs.
Darcy Kuemper Headshot

Kuemper led the Wild out on the ice for warmups Saturday afternoon, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. This means the backup goalie will start at home against the Canucks.

Added 03/25/17 1:35 pm (EST)
Kuemper didn't play at all in the last six games, but the Wild desperately need a change of pace with No. 1 backstop Devan Dubnyk posting a 3.07 GAA, .890 save percentage, and just one win in that span.
Patrick Sharp Headshot

Sharp will undergo season-ending hip surgery Tuesday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Added 03/25/17 1:12 pm (EST)
The 2016-17 campaign was anything but friendly to the veteran winger, as he experienced two concussions, trouble with his hip, and one heck of a time keeping up defensively on the way to a career-low minus-22 rating over 47 games. Unfortunately -- if that wasn't enough -- his father is also said to be receiving treatment for Leukemia. It was reported March 1 that Sharp would delay his surgery until after the season, but he evidently wanted to keep going despite the Stars having next to no shot at the playoffs. All is not lost, however, as Sharp reportedly has been nominated for the Masterton Trophy, with that coveted piece of hardware going to the player who best exemplifies perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.
Laurent Brossoit Headshot

Brossoit will defend the cage from the Avalanche as Saturday's home starter, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Added 03/25/17 12:59 pm (EST)
What kind of parallel universe do we live in with Cam Talbot not getting the start for Edmonton here? We kid, we kid -- Talbot's leading the league with an astounding 3,933 minutes behind the pipes, but Brossoit gets the starting nod after having to relieve the busy tender last time out. A native of British Columbia, Brossoit has gone 2-1-0 with a shiny 2.26 GAA and .928 save percentage over a career-high six games this campaign. He'll be a sneaky daily play given his status as the backup and fielding shots against an Avalanche team with a goal differential of minus-101 (yeah, you read that properly).
