Shane Doan picked up an assist in a 4-1 defeat on Wednesday.

Doan has four points in his last four games. He's currently on pace to flirt with the 70-point mark, which is a milestone he's reached twice in his career. We expect him to end up falling short of that mark, but he's clearly still a great player even at the age of 37.
Dmitry Kulikov is expected to play Thursday night after he was a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

He spoke with interim coach Peter Horachek before Wednesday's practice. "He needs to be assertive and confident; he needs to open his eyes and not look like somebody kicked his dog," the Panthers bench boss said. "You can't play hockey that way. You can't go to work that way. You shouldn't go home that way." He's had a difficult start to the 2013-14 campaign.
Scott Hartnell scored a goal and registered two assists in a 6-3 win Wednesday.
Hartnell was also charged with a minor penalty. That gives him 11 points and 23 penalty minutes in 24 games this season. He seems to have put his cold start to the season behind him, which means that he's a great guy to have in standard leagues. He'll give you a nice blend of goals and penalty minutes.
