A strong goaltending performance for the Flyers, Crosby back on track, Zucker snipes for the Wild and a Stephen Weiss sighting; Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Steve Mason – Recorded a 46-save shutout for the Flyers before losing in the shootout against the Islanders. Mason is up to a .923 save percentage on the season and has a .921 save percentage in 81 games with the Flyers; remarkable considering he had a .903 save percentage in 232 games with Columbus. Considering that hes toiling for a team with defensive issues (25th in the league in shot attempts allowed per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 play), and injuries on the blueline pretty much all season, Mason has to play well for the Flyers to remain competitive. Crosby and Malkin – After a tough weekend against the Islanders, Sidney Crosby was in on every Pittsburgh goal, putting up a goal and two assists, in a 3-2 overtime win over Boston Monday. Crosby’s three-point night moved him into a tie with Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek for the scoring lead, with 29 points in Evgeni Malkin scored a pair of goals, including the winner and Kris Letang chipped in a pair of assists. Jason Zucker – The Wild winger scored a pair of goals and had 11 shot attempts (9 SOG) in Minnesota’s 4-1 win at Florida. The 22-year-old started the season on the fourth line, but is tied for second on the team with eight goals and, with seven coming at even-strength, his goals-per-60 production is among the best in the league. Among skaters with at least 200 5-on-5 minutes: 5-ON-5 GOALS PER 60 PLAYER TEAM GOAL/60 Rick Nash N.Y. Rangers 2.69 Tanner Pearson Los Angeles 2.17 Tomas Tatar Detroit 1.95 Tyler Seguin Dallas 1.94 Vladimir Tarasenko St. Louis 1.83 Jason Zucker Minnesota 1.74 Max Pacioretty Montreal 1.66 Nick Bonino Vancouver 1.66 Marcus Johansson Washington 1.65 Nikita Kucherov Tampa Bay 1.65 ZEROES Laughton, Lecavalier – Both young and old Flyers forwards had trouble against the Islanders, getting less than 20% of the even-strength shot attempts. Laughton, playing in his fourth game of the season, was no the ice for four shot attempts for and 18 against (18.2%) and Lecavalier was barely better (4 for, 17 against, 19.1%). Jared Cowen – The Senators defenceman continues to struggle this season and, specifically, had a rought night at Detroit, stuck in the defensive zone (3 shot attempts for, 17 against, 15.0%) for most of the game. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Stephen Weiss – Scored a pair of goals for Detroit in a 4-3 win over Ottawa. It’s been a rough road for Weiss, who had three goals in 44 games since the start of the 2012-13 season, but he made the most of his opportunity to play alongside Darren Helm and Tomas Jurco. Jayson Megna – The 24-year-old winger made his season debut with the Penguins, playing 8:39 against Boston, with Zach Sill scratched from the lineup. Megna had 12 points (9 G, 3 A) in 17 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL. Alexander Khokhlachev – Played just 2:53 against Pittsburgh Monday, his third game of the season with the Bruins. SHORT SHIFTS Islanders G Jaroslav Halak stopped all 21 shots he faced against Philadelphia…Senators D Erik Karlsson and C Kyle Turris each had a goal and an assist in a 4-3 loss at Detroit. With 16 points in 20 games, Karlsson is tied for fourth in scoring among defencemen. FIRSTS Joe Morrow – Drafted by Pittsburgh in the first round in 2011, Morrow scored his first career NHL goal against Pittsburgh, for Boston, in the Bruins’ 3-2 overtime loss Monday. David Pastrnak – Called up to Boston, the 2014 first-round pick played 7:53 and had solid possession stats (9 shot attempts for, 4 against, 69.2%) in his small-sample NHL debut after scoring 18 points (5 G, 13 A) in 17 AHL games. FANTASY FOCUS There are seven games on the NHL schedule tonight. Here are some players that you may want to consider for your lineup: Jake Muzzin – The Kings blueline is on fire, with 10 points (1 G, 9 A) in the past eight games, after none in his first seven games of the season. Justin Schultz – It’s tough times around the Oilers these days and Schultz’s defensive issues remain a concern, but he’s also been a solid enough point producer with four in the past five games. Sam Gagner – Following a miserable start to the season, which included four points in his first 16 games, the Coyotes centre has five assists in the past six games and, with Martin Hanzal hurt, has played more than 19 minutes in each of the last three. Sami Vatanen – I’ve been beating this drum for most of the season, but the Ducks’ power play quarterback continues to produce, ranking third among defencemen with 18 points after posting 11 points (2 G, 9 A) in the past nine games. Much of the data included comes from,, and Scott Cullen can be reached at Cam Newton Jersey . Harris has played in six games since joining the Argos in 2012, completing 17-of-35 passes for 256 yards and one touchdown. DaNorris Searcy Jersey . -- Colin Kaepernick insists he just happened to pull on a pair of socks with dollar bill prints all over them Wednesday morning -- before he learned he had struck a new fortune with the San Francisco 49ers. Case in point: LeBron James vs. Ben McLemore. James was driving to the rim in the first quarter and McLemore decided to try to take the charge, which was quite admirable and predictably futile. Ian Thomas Jersey . -- Derek Jeter says the New York Yankees have no choice but to move forward now that Alex Rodriguez has accepted his suspension for the 2014 season. Captain Munnerlyn Jersey .J. -- Fabian Johnson scored his first international goal and Clint Dempsey doubled the lead after a defensive lapse as the United States beat Turkey 2-1 Sunday in the second of three World Cup warm-up matches for the Americans before they head to Brazil.Englewood, CO ( - The Denver Broncos have picked up the fifth-year option on the contract of linebacker Von Miller, which keeps the 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year under team control through 2015. Miller is slated to earn $9.754 million in 2015, the final year of his rookie deal, though the salary is guaranteed for injury only. The move was not unexpected, as the 25-year-old has emerged as one of the leagues premier pass rushers since being taken by Denver with the No. 2 overalll pick of the 2011 draft.dddddddddddd Miller racked up 11 1/2 sacks as a rookie, then tallied 18 1/2 along with six forced fumbles while earning first team All-Pro honors in his second season. He is coming off a difficult 2013 campaign, however, as he sat out the first six games for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy and missed the entire postseason after tearing his ACL in late December. He finished with 34 tackles, five sacks and three forced fumbles in nine regular-season contests.
