Date Player
11/23/2017 Pekka Rinne, Nsh, G
Rinne made 27 saves before stopping all three of Montreal's shootout attempts in a 3-2 victory.

Analysis: Rinne improved to 8-0-1 at home. He's won three straight starts - all in Nashville - while posting a .926 save percentage.
11/23/2017 Filip Forsberg, Nsh, LW
Forsberg scored a pair of power-play goals and Kyle Turris had the only goal in a shootout to lead the Predators to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Nashville entered with the NHL's best power play at home, converting 40.5 percent of the time, and Forsberg is a big reason why. Seven of his team-leading 11 goals have come with the man advantage. Forsberg is on a six-game point streak overall - five were home games - with three goals and six assists.
11/23/2017 Corey Crawford, Chi, G
Crawford made 35 saves in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Lightning.

Analysis: Hard to blame Crawford for this loss considering he made some great saves and the overtime goal came on a power play. However, this was the fourth time in five starts he has allowed at least three goals, a span in which he has a mediocre .899 save percentage.
11/23/2017 Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB, G
Vasilevskiy made 29 saves in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Chicago.

Analysis: He made some terrific saves, including one on a breakaway by Patrick Kane in OT. Vasilevskiy leads the NHL with 15 wins and has allowed no more than two goals in four of his past five starts.
11/23/2017 Ondrej Palat, TB, LW
Palat scored a short-handed goal in Wednesday's overtime win over the Blackhawks.

Analysis: Palat has scored in back-to-back games after having only one goal in his previous 12 contests. Palat, at a plus-8 for the season, has six goals on the season and is just about on pace to match his career high of 23 from 2013-14.
11/23/2017 Patrick Kane, Chi, RW
Kane scored both of Chicago's goals, including one on the power play, and nearly had another on a breakaway in overtime in a 3-2 loss to the Lightning on Wednesday.

Analysis: Kane has three goals and four assists during a five-game point streak. He has 20 points in 14 games against Tampa Bay, though Chicago doesn't play the Lightning again until Jan. 22.
11/23/2017 Brayden Point, TB, C
Point scored a power-play goal 3:25 into overtime, and the Lightning rallied to beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Three of Point's nine goals this season have been game-winners, all of which have come at home. Fifteen of his 21 points, including seven goals, have come in Tampa.
11/23/2017 Braden Holtby, Was, G
Holtby made 29 saves to help send the Washington Capitals to a 5-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

11/23/2017 Evgeny Kuznetsov, Was, C

Analysis: Vrana only had two points (a pair of goals) over his previous 14 games before totaling three in his last two.
11/23/2017 Alex Ovechkin, Was, LW
Paired with Nicklas Backstrom for the first time this season, Ovechkin scored his first goal in seven games and 14th overall to help send the Washington Capitals to a 5-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Seven of Ovechkin's goals this season came in his first two games, so perhaps this is the spark he needs.
11/23/2017 Jake Guentzel, Pit, LW
Guentzel scored twice in the Penguins' 5-2 loss to the Canucks on Wednesday.

Analysis: Guentzel has four of his eight goals on the season in his last five games.
