Player AlarmsView All
P. Copley - G
Copley will in goal Tuesday when the Capitals take on Nashville, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
With Braden Holtby needing the night off for "precautionary reasons", the 26-year-old Copley gets the nod for the second time in as many nights. He's played well this season, on his way to posting a 10-3-3 record over 17 appearances.

J. Saros - G
Saros is in net Tuesday against Washington, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Saros was perfect in relief Sunday and will get the chance to play the whole game versus Washington on Tuesday. The Finn is 3-0-1 in his last five appearances, while the Caps have struggled somewhat of late, losing five of their last eight.

R. Luongo - G
Luongo will serve as Florida's backup Tuesday against the Canadiens, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
Luongo was named as the starter for Tuesday's game versus his hometown Canadiens earlier in the day. However, James Reimer led Florida out for pre-game warmups, and as a result, has been named the team's starter for the game against Montreal. According to John Lu of TSN.ca, Luongo left the team's morning skate but is healthy enough to serve as backup. An update on the 39-year-old's status will come after Tuesday's game.

J. Reimer - G
Reimer will start Tuesday's road game versus the Canadiens, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
This news contradicts earlier reports of Roberto Luongo facing his hometown team. Turns out it will be Reimer, and not Luongo, tending twine in Montreal. Tuesday will be the 15th time Reimer has faced the Canadiens in his career. He holds a lifetime record of 6-5-2 against the Original Six franchise.
Added 7:14 pm (EST)
J. Gibson - G
Gibson will start Tuesday's road contest versus the Red Wings, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Gibson is winless over his last 10 appearances, posting a 0-5-4 record with a 3.40 GAA and .896 save percentage. The Ducks are a mess right now, and unfortunately for Gibson, the team's collective struggles have hurt his fantasy value. If Anaheim, led by Gibson, can pull off the win Tuesday, it'll be the goalie's first win since Dec. 17.
Added 7:06 pm (EST)
A. McQuaid - D
McQuaid (undisclosed) will be in the lineup when the Rangers host Carolina on Tuesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.
The 32-year-old slots back into the lineup after missing one game with an undisclosed injury. On the season, McQuaid has just three assists in 21 games while averaging 17:19 of ice time per night. Healthy or not, the Rangers' blueliner does not belong on your fantasy roster.
Added 6:42 pm (EST)
R. Lehner - G
Lehner will patrol the crease Tuesday against the Blues, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Lehner dropped a 2-1 decision to the Rangers in his last start. Prior to that, the Islanders' netminder had won eight straight. Facing a Blues team riding a three-game win streak, Lehner will be looking to end St. Louis' run of good form and get back in the win column with a strong performance of his own. The two teams last played on Jan. 5 with New York prevailing 4-3. Lehner picked up the win in that contest.
