2 months agoDetroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin opened the scoring just 38 seconds into the game during a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night. The only negative about Larkin's year was a neck injury that cost him five games. Aside from that, the 22-year-old has been the Red Wings' best player by a sizable margin. He has 28 goals, 36 assists, and 14 power-play points through 70 games this season. Larkin continues to get better with each passing season despite playing with mid-tier talent on a mediocre team. His point totals will continue to increase as the talent surrounding him gets better. He has become a worthy C2 in all formats. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
2 months agoDetroit Red Wings center Andreas Athanasiou picked up a breakaway goal in the second period of a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night. The 24-year-old now has five goals and two assists over his past five games. Athanasiou has been unleashed by head coach Jeff Blashill with the Red Wings clearly out of the playoff picture. He has set career highs across the board with 29 goals, 20 assists, and eight power-play points. Athanasiou will only continue to get better as the young Red Wings core continues to develop. The speedster is worthy of ownership in all deeper formats and is someone to keep an eye on heading into next year's fantasy draft.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
2 months agoNashville Predators goaltender Juuse Saros posted his third shutout of the season on Monday, as the team clinched their playoff spot with a 1-0 road win over Minnesota. The game-winner was scored just a few minutes into the game when Ryan Johansson netted a short-handed goal. Saros had 29 saves to improve his record for the season to 17-9-2. He boasts a 2.53 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage. The young Finn looks set for one more appearance this week, as the Preds have a back-to-back set coming up against the Penguins and Blue Jackets.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoSt. Louis Blues center Ryan O'Reilly helped the team one step closer to the playoffs on Monday, scoring the game-winning goal in a 3-1 success over Vegas. Zach Sanford had a goal and an assist, while Ivan Barbashev also scored. William Karlsson had the lone marker for the Knights on a power play. O'Reilly is enjoying a career year, having already posted his best ever numbers in assists (44) and points (71), and he needs just two more goals to do the same in that category as well. St. Louis get two struggling teams the Rangers and Devils on back-to-back nights next, so O'Reilly will be in a good spot to rack up more points.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoOttawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson will start Tuesday's game against the skidding Buffalo Sabres, head coach Marc Crawford confirmed. He heads into the game with a 15-25-4 record, 3.54 goals-against average and .902 save percentage in 43 starts and 46 appearances. Anderson has had trouble against the Sabres, too, posting a 1-1-0 record, 4.05 GAA and .914 save percentage in his two previous starts this season. He is a risky play in most seasonal fantasy formats at this point, although he could be a sneaky low-cost DFS option against the skidding Sabres.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: TSN 1200AM Ottawa
2 months agoNew York Rangers goaltender Alexandar Georgiev allowed five goals on 36 shots in Monday's 5-2 loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins. With the loss he slipped to 11-13-3 with a 3.09 goals-against average and .907 save percentage across 26 starts and 29 appearances. Despite the loss he is still a very impressive 6-3-2 with a 2.28 GAA, .925 save percentage and his only shutout in 11 starts and 12 appearances at home. The Rangers face another difficult matchup on the road against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoPittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray allowed two goals on 35 shots in Monday's 5-2 victory against the New York Rangers. He improved to 6-0-0 all-time against the Rangers, and 5-0-0 in his career at Madison Square Garden. Overall he improved to 27-12-5 with a 2.72 goals-against average and .919 save percentage. He appears to be ramping up and getting ready for another long playoff run. The 24-year-old from Thunder Bay, Ont. has won each of his past three outings on the road, and he is 3-0-1 on the current road trip.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoPittsburgh Penguins center Teddy Blueger posted a short-handed goal while adding an even-strength marker in Monday's 5-2 road victory against the New York Rangers. Blueger was centering the second line with Evgeni Malkin (upper body) out of the lineup again, and he did his best Geno impressive to put the game out of reach. His shorthanded goal put the team up 4-2, and his other goal was an insurance marker. Blueger has registered three goals and five points with a plus-four rating over the past seven outings while recording a pair of short-handed points across the past two games. He is a solid low-cost DFS option while running hot and as long as Malkin is on the shelf. The Pens are back in action Friday against the Nashville Predators.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoNew Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider allowed just one goal over 46 shots in Monday's 3-1 victory against the Buffalo Sabres. He improved to 6-12-3 with a 3.07 goals-against average and .904 save percentage in 21 starts and 24 appearances overall. He has been particularly hot since the All-Star break, going 6-7-2 with a 2.40 GAA, .926 save percentage and a shutout. He can once again be trusted as a No. 2 fantasy option in deeper formats down the stretch. The Devils have a few days off before returning to the ice Friday in Detroit for a favorable matchup.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoBuffalo Sabres center Sam Reinhart posted his 20th goal of the season with five shots on goal across 20:24 of ice time over 22 shifts in Monday's 3-1 loss against the New Jersey Devils. Reinhart has lit the lamp in consecutive games, giving him 20 goals for the second straight season. He appeared to have a second goal, but the Devils challenged that Evan Rodrigues interfered with goaltender Cory Schneider and his 21st goal was waved off. He'll look to make it three games in a row in Tuesday's road outing against the Ottawa Senators. He has two assists in two games against the Senators this season.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoFlorida Panthers centers Jayce Hawryluk and Jonathan Huberdeau each recorded two goals in Monday's 7-5 road loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs, while Hawryluk also posted an assist. He also had the physicality going, going two blocked shots, a minor for roughing in a dust-up with Toronto defenseman Ron Hainsey, as well as three hits. Huberdeau reached 25 goals for the second consecutive season, and his 84 points are easily a new career best. He also has 10 power-play goals and 23 assists on the man advantage to easily set a new high. The Panthers will try to keep up the big offense with a quick turnaround in Montreal on Tuesday.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 months agoToronto Maple Leafs center Mitchell Marner registered three assists with a blocked shot and a hit in Monday's 7-5 victory against the visiting Florida Panthers. Meanwhile, defenseman Morgan Rielly was good for a pair of assists with a plus-one rating, a blocked shot and two hits. Marner reached 65 assists for the season, while Rielly recorded his 50th assist on the second apple. The defenseman was able to snap a three-game scoreless skid, while posting just his second multi-point game since Feb. 23. The Leafs will look to continue the offensive onslaught Wednesday night in Philadelphia.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Toronto Sun - Terry Koshan
2 months agoToronto Maple Leafs center Zach Hyman posted his 20th goal of the season while adding two assists and a plus-one rating, two blocked shots and a minor penalty in Monday's 7-5 victory against the Florida Panthers. His previous best in a season was 15, set last year when he also had a career-best 40 points. He needs three points to surpass that total. Hyman also has a new high with four game-winning tallies. Hyman and the Leafs will look to continue their offensive ways in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: Sportsnet.ca
2 months agoToronto Maple Leafs center John Tavares posted the first four-goal game of his career in Monday's 7-5 game against the Florida Panthers. He also finished with a plus-one rating and four hits in 18:56 of ice time. He now has 45 goals which is the most ever for a Maple Leafs player in their first season with the franchise. He is also just the fourth player in the past 20 years to notch four goals in a single game with the Maple Leafs. Tavares is now just three goals behind Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the overall league lead. He'll look to add to his total in Philadelphia on Wednesday.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL Public Relations
2 months agoSan Jose Sharks goaltender Martin Jones will be in net against the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night. Jones has lost four straight starts, posting a .871 save percentage in the process. The 29-year-old has a sparkling 34-16-5 record, but his 2.91 goals-against average and .898 save percentage leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily, the Red Wings are in town on Monday. They sit 26th in the league in goals per game (2.67) and are 29th in the overall standings. Despite Jones' recent struggles, he is a top-tier fantasy option on Monday night. Start him with confidence on home ice. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: San Jose Sharks
