Gibson stopped 24 shots for his 10th career shutout and the Ducks defeated the Kings 1-0 on Sunday night.

2/20/2017 Shayne Gostisbehere, Phi, D
Gostisbehere recorded a career-high three assists Sunday.

Analysis: Teammate Wayne Simmonds said Gostisbehere is returning to the form that saw him collect 46 points, including 17 goals, in 64 games last season when he was the Calder Trophy runner-up. Gostisbehere has four goals and 21 assists in 53 games this season, having been a healthy scratch five times. "Ghost has had his ups and downs this year, but he's a heck of a player and has unbelievable skill," Simmonds said. "He can be a catalyst offensively for us."
2/20/2017 Tyler Graovac, Min, C
The Wild recalled Graovac from the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League on Monday.

Analysis: Graovac, 23, has six goals, 37 shots on goal and six penalty minutes in 45 games with Minnesota this season. He also has three goals, one assist and 13 penalty minutes in eight games with Iowa, so if you haven't already figured it out, he has no fantasy value.
2/20/2017 Tuukka Rask, Bos, G
Rask made 29 saves in the Bruins' 2-1 overtime win over the Sharks on Sunday.

Analysis: Rask posted an atrocious .854 save percentage during an 11-start stretch from Jan. 14-Feb. 9. But he's looked like his old self since the Bruins' bye week, stopping 54 of 55 shots in a pair of wins.
2/20/2017 Martin Jones, SJ, G
Jones made 26 saves in the Sharks' 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Sunday.

Analysis: Despite the loss, that's a nice bounce-back performance by Jones after he posted an .837 save percentage over his previous four starts.
2/20/2017 Martin Jones, SJ, G
Jones made 26 saves in the Sharks' 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Sunday.

2/20/2017 Cam Ward, Car, G
Ward allowed four goals on 24 shots before being pulled midway through the third period of Sunday's loss to Toronto.

Analysis: Ward was having a fairly good season up until about a month ago. He's now 4-6-1 with a 3.84 goals-against average over his last 11 starts and mostly off limits for fantasy purposes.
2/20/2017 Auston Matthews, Tor, C
Matthews scored a highlight-reel goal in the second period to help Toronto to Sunday's 4-0 win at Carolina.

Analysis: Tied for third in the league with 28 goals, the 2016 No. 1 overall pick has remained neck-and-neck with Winnipeg's Patrik Laine in the Calder Trophy race by scoring five times with five assists over his last 10 games.
