10/13/2015 Matt Donovan, Buf, D
The Sabres placed Donovan on waivers Tuesday.

Luongo registered 32 saves in Monday's 1-0 loss at Philadelphia.

Neuvirth posted a 31-save shutout in Monday's 1-0 win over Florida.

Analysis: Neuvirth recorded his first shutout since March 2012 subbing for Steve Mason, who was not with the team due to a personal matter. The performance likely earned Neuvirth another start against Chicago.

Tavares had a power-play goal and added two assists and the Islanders beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 on Monday afternoon to earn their first victory in Brooklyn.

10/12/2015 Tuukka Rask, Bos, G
