Curtis McElhinney stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 3-2 loss to Florida on Sunday. McElhinney is being put in a tough situation to win games when his team musters only 17 shots on the opposing netminder.
Mike Condon started the first game of the Habs’ back-to-back, so they will go to Scrivens on Tuesday, just a day after being acquired from Edmonton. He was 2-6-1 with a 3.47 GAA and .893 SV% with Bakersfield (AHL) before being dealt.

Detroit Red Wings at Winnipeg Jets
Jimmy Howard vs Connor Hellebuyck
Petr Mrazek started Monday’s 3-1 loss to Minnesota and Howard was scheduled to play Tuesday regardless of the result. Howard was pulled in his last start and he will look to bounce back against the Jets
Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne stopped 26 of the 29 shots he faced in the Predators’ 5-3 triumph over the visiting New York Rangers Monday night. Rinne hasn’t been quite as stellar as he has been in the past (not his faut) but his victory Monday gave him an overall record of 15-10-6 in 31 games and he is sporting a goals-against average of 2.38 and a save percentage of .910
Allen allowed two goals on 24 shots in the Blues win over the Stars on Saturday. Brian Elliott got the nod on Sunday, but they will go back to Allen tonight vs. the Predators.

John Gibson allowed two goals on 26 shots in a 4-2 win over the Flyers on Sunday.
Gibson has been solid since being recalled from the minors and seems to be the netminder of choice for coach Bruce Boudreau.
Karri Ramo allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 5-3 win over the Oilers on Sunday.
Ramo has now won seven of his last nine starts and is shaping into a solid fantasy netminder.
Los Angeles Kings at Edmonton Oilers
Jonathan Quick vs Cam Talbot
Cam Talbot will get the nod for Edmonton versus Los Angeles on Tuesday.Talbot has been playing his best hockey of the season in December with a .938 save percentage and a 2.27 goals-against average in five outings.
Corey Crawford allowed two goals in a 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Sunday. Crawford is having a great season but has now lost two straight games. His record is now 18-10-2 and will look to break his losing streak on Tuesday against the Arizona Coyotes.
Lindback was excellent on Sunday, stopping 38 of 39 shots in the 2-1 OT win in Colorado. Lindback has been so inconsistent this year and for most of his NHL career—he sits at 2-1-1 with a 3.43 GAA and .885 SV% in December. His unpredictability and a matchup against the defending Stanley Cup Champions makes Lindback a scary option on Tuesday.
