Updates since the Playbook was posted early this morning:
- Andrei Vasilevskiy will sit tonight with Curtis McElhinney getting the start in net for Tampa. McElhinney could be a cash option on FD, but it’s unlikely you need to save the $300 difference between him and Marc-Andre Fleury.
- Washington and Colorado were already good plays tonight, but their matchups improve with Louis Domingue in net for the Devils and Martin Jones in net for the Sharks.
- Jack Campbell isn’t winning a Vezina anytime soon, but he has been better than Jonathan Quick this season. With Campbell going for LA, Florida’s matchup is a bit less appealing. That said, they still have the third highest implied goal total of the slate.
- William Karlsson is out tonight, and Paul Stastny likely takes his spot in the top six. The guess is that Stastny centers Stone and Pacioretty while Chandler Stephenson centers Marchessault and Smith. The pricing on the Stephenson line is better, but with a cheap ARI1 stack in...

C. Crawford - G
Crawford will guard the road goal during Tuesday's matchup with the Blues, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
K. Yamamoto - F
Yamamoto is considered week-to-week with the ankle injury he suffered during Sunday's win over L.A.
This is a big loss for the Oilers and fantasy owners alike, as Yamamoto has been on a tear since joining the big club in late December, racking up nine goals and 21 points while posting an impressive plus-14 rating through 21 games. The recently acquired Andreas Athanasiou may get the first crack at replacing Yamamoto in Edmonton's top six.

D. Kuemper - G
Kuemper (lower body) will get the start in goal in Tuesday's home game versus the Panthers, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Kuemper recently returned from a brief conditioning stint with AHL Tucson, so although he hasn't seen NHL game action since suffering a lower-body injury in mid-December, he shouldn't be overly rusty Tuesday. The 29-year-old backstop will attempt to pick up his 16th win of the season in a home matchup with a slumping Florida squad that's gone 2-4-0 in its last six games.

K. Kuhlman - F

J. Binnington - G
Binnington will guard the home cage during Tuesday's clash with Chicago, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
F. Andersen - G
Andersen will be between the pipes for his fifth consecutive game in Tuesday's road clash with the Lightning, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Z. Smith - F
Smith (back) won't play Tuesday against the Blues.
J. Korpisalo - G
Korpisalo will patrol the crease during Tuesday's road game versus the Wild, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
