Nicklas Grossmann suffered a shoulder injury in the second period and did not play in the third stanza.

He has 10 assists with a minus-10 rating in 58 games this season but his fantasy value is in penalty minutes (53), hits (137) and blocked shots (142). He is 38th in the NHL in hits and fourth in blocked shots.
