Flames' Dillon Dube: Pockets assist in overtime win
Dube notched an assist and two hits in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canucks.
Dube's offense has run a little cold lately -- his helper Friday was his second point over the last seven games. He helped out on a Troy Stecher tally in the second period. Dube's enjoyed a career year with 18 goals, 24 assists, 139 shots on net, 127 hits and a minus-7 rating through 76 contests. The 24-year-old doesn't appear to be a great fit on offense alongside Nazem Kadri, so it's likely best to leave Dube on the waiver wire to close out the season.
Flames' Andrew Mangiapane: Supplies helper
Mangiapane posted an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canucks.
Mangiapane has picked up the pace on offense with two goals and three assists over his last eight games. Prior to that stretch, he endured a 10-game point drought. Mangiapane is up to 37 points (15 tallies, 22 helpers), 171 shots on net, 83 hits, 40 PIM and a plus-7 rating through 76 appearances. He should continue to be a solid supporting scorer in a top-line role.
Stars' Roope Hintz: Provides two points vs. Arizona
Hintz collected a goal and an assist in Dallas' 5-2 win over Arizona on Friday.
Hintz's marker early in the second period tied the contest at 2-2, and he then provided the primary assist on Jason Robertson's game-winner late in the same frame. Hintz is up to 34 goals and 69 points in 67 outings this season. He's just three goals and three points shy of his career highs in those respective categories.
Flames' Nazem Kadri: Earns helper Friday
Kadri logged an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canucks.
Kadri has two goals and an assist over his last four outings despite playing mainly in a third-line role in that span. The center set up a Troy Stecher tally in the second period. Kadri is up to 23 goals, 29 helpers, 249 shots on net, 91 hits, 56 PIM and a minus-17 rating through 76 appearances.
Coyotes' Ivan Prosvetov: In goal Saturday
Prosvetov will guard the home goal Saturday versus the Sharks, Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports.
Prosvetov will play for the first time in seven games after Karel Vejmelka took the loss Friday versus the Stars. Through three starts this season, Prosvetov is 3-0-0 with five goals allowed on 105 shots. He'll be a solid streaming option for Saturday's game.
Stars' Jason Robertson: Supplies four points Friday
Robertson scored a goal and registered three assists in the Stars' 5-2 victory over Arizona on Friday.
Robertson's marker proved to be the game-winner and one of his assists was recorded with the man advantage. This was his third multi-point outing in the span of six contests, and he has three goals and 10 points in that span. Through 75 appearances in 2022-23, Robertson has 42 goals and 95 points.
Stars' Max Domi: Hits 20-goal milestone
Domi contributed a goal in Dallas' 5-2 victory over Arizona on Friday.
Domi has been held off the scoresheet only once over his last four outings. His latest goal, which came late in the third period to put Dallas up 5-2, was his 20th marker and 55th point in 73 appearances this season. This is the first time Domi has reached the 20-goal milestone since he recorded 28 markers in 2018-19.
Stars' Joe Pavelski: Stays hot Friday
Pavelski scored a goal in Dallas' 5-2 victory over Arizona on Friday.
Pavelski keeps finding the back of the net. He's provided a goal in five of his last six contests and nine of his most recent 13 games. That's pushed him up to 23 markers and 69 points in 75 appearances in 2022-23. If the 38-year-old can record at least two more goals in Dallas' final seven contests, then he'll have hit the 25-mark for the 11th time in his career.
Stars' Jamie Benn: Scores 32nd goal of 2022-23
Benn tallied a goal in a 5-2 victory over Arizona on Friday.
Benn found the back of the net early in the third period to increase the Stars' lead to 4-2. He's up to 32 goals and 72 points in 75 outings this season. Benn was held off the scoresheet over his previous two contests, but that was his first scoring drought of two or more games since Jan. 10-12. In other words, Benn has been a remarkably consistent offensive force.
Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Allows five goals in overtime loss
Demko turned aside 36 of 41 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to Calgary on Friday.
Demko has allowed a staggering 11 goals on 72 shots over his last two outings. That's in stark contrast to Feb. 27-March 25, during which he posted an 8-3-0 record, 2.28 GAA and .922 save percentage in 11 appearances. Overall in 2022-23, Demko is 11-13-4 with a 3.37 GAA and an .894 save percentage in 28 outings.
