|Shore had both goals for the Stars in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the red-hot Flyers.

|Toffoli went to the dressing room three minutes into Saturday's game against the Ottawa Senators after he was boarded by Mark Borowiecki. He returned to the contest with four minutes left in the first period.
Analysis: Toffoli, who led the Kings in goals last season with 31 and was second the team in points coming into the game with 15, remained down on the ice as a scrum ensued involving several players. He got to his feet on his own power before heading straight to the locker room.
|12/10/2016||Cam Talbot, Edm, G|
|Talbot made 34 saves in the Oilers' 3-2 shootout loss to the Wild on Friday.

|12/10/2016||Vladimir Tarasenko, StL, RW|
|Tarasenko had three assists in the Blues' 4-1 win over the Devils on Friday.

|Bobrovsky made 32 stops in the Blue Jackets' 4-1 win over the Red Wings on Friday.

|12/10/2016||Philipp Grubauer, Was, G|
|Grubauer made 27 saves in the Capitals' 4-1 win over the Sabres on Friday.
Analysis: Grubauer is 4-1-1 with a .940 save percentage. Not bad for a little-used backup.
|12/10/2016||Jonathan Bernier, Anh, G|
|It was a big game for Anaheim goalie Jonathan Bernier on Friday. In his last start, he gave up eight goals to Calgary, but he had 22 saves and withstood a frantic final attack after San Jose pulled its goalie with 2 minutes left in a 3-2 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Bernier has been sharp at home, going 3-0-1 with a 1.66 goals-against average in five games there.
|12/10/2016||Hampus Lindholm, Anh, D|
|Lindholm got his first goal of the season with 5:38 remaining Friday, helping the Anaheim Ducks beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 after blowing a two-goal lead.
Analysis: The 22-year-old Lindholm held out this season before signing a six-year contract extension in late October. He didn't play his first game until Nov. 9 and got his first goal in 15 contests.
|12/10/2016||Scott Darling, Chi, G|
|Darling was going for his second straight shutout while subbing for injured starter Corey Crawford, but he had to settle for a season-high 36 stops in another solid performance in Friday's 1-0 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: He has a 5-2-2 record with a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage in 11 games. He'll continue to see action while Corey Crawford is out.

|Raanta made 26 saves against his former team, and the Rangers blanked the Blackhawks 1-0 on Friday. Raanta made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2013 and was teammates with Darling for one season before he was traded to New York.
Analysis: He improved to 15-0-3 in 20 career appearances at the United Center. The 27-year-old Raanta had 17 saves in Thursday's 2-1 victory at Winnipeg, and Vigneault opted to give him a second straight start because of his recent play and his success in Chicago.
|12/9/2016||Henrik Lundqvist, NYR, G|
|Lundqvist will not start for a second straight night when the Rangers visit Chicago on Friday.
Analysis: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said that backup Antti Raanta is playing better than the 2012 Vezina Trophy winner when explaining his decision. Lundqvist owns a shaky 3.28 goals-against average over his last six starts, while Raanta has yielded two goals or less in each of his past seven.
|12/9/2016||Jonathan Ericsson, Det, D|
