3/2:Boston Bruins forward Rick Nash scored a power-play goal and recorded a primary assist in Boston’s 8-4 win over the Penguins on Thursday night. Nash has made his presence known since being acquired by the Bruins from the Rangers last Sunday, recording two goals, one assist and 10 shots over the past two games. The 33-year-old is looking more like the Rick Nash of 2014-15, when he finished third in scoring behind Steven Stamkos and Alex Ovechkin. Nash has settled in very well on the Bruins second line next to David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk and should continue to fire on all cylinders now that he is playing for a contending team and a new contract. The Bruins schedule over the fantasy playoffs certainly adds to the dual-eligible wing's value, as they play 15 games through the end of March.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: Pro Hockey Talk
3/2:Nashville Predators center Mike Fisher makes his awaited mid-season debut Friday against the Vancouver Canucks. Fisher signed a one-year, $1 million contract with Nashville on Monday which allows him to play for the Predators in the postseason. Fisher had 18 goals and 24 assists in 72 games last season, but the lineup in Nashville has changed with the addition of Kyle Turris, Ryan Hartman and Nick Bonino, so the chances are Fisher will be eased back in. Fantasy owners should monitor where he slots in the lineup. Nashville is strong down the center and he may not get too much ice time right away.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Nashville Predators on Twitter
3/2:San Jose Sharks left wing Evander Kane has been in San Jose for two games, and he was slotted into the top line next to Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi. During his two games, he has averaged 17 minutes of ice time, including time on the top power-play line. He's already found three assists and is making a great addition to the Sharks roster. The Sharks are in a close playoff race right now and are sitting in second in the Pacific division with 79 points. With the addition of Kane, they are sitting in a great spot to secure their third consecutive postseason berth.--Anthony Vattimo - RotoBallerSource:
3/2:Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz has announced that goalie Braden Holtby will indeed be their starter against the Toronto Maple Leafs for the Stadium Series game on Saturday. With a .873 save percentage through the month of February, it was unclear who the Caps would go with against the high-flying Leafs on the big stage. What made the decision particularly difficult was the recent strong play of backup Philipp Grubauer, but Trotz confirmed who he will start. Adjust your lineup accordingly, but play Holtby at your own risk. Other than his own recent stretch of poor play, the Leafs are 7-1-2 in their last 10 games.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: Tom Gulitti
3/2:The Nashville Predators acquired center Kyle Turris from the Ottawa Senators in a landmark three-team trade involving Matt Duchene, and the early returns have been promising. However, Turris has since been struggling with only three goals and four assists, and in his previous 18 outings, he only has 13 even-strength points on the season. Turris' only redeeming fantasy quality seems to be his power play. Centering the second line of a strong Nashville power play, he has three goals and 11 points, but that does not make him a valuable fantasy asset. His linemates Kevin Fiala (36.6 percent owned in ESPN leagues) and Craig Smith (35.0 percent owned in ESPN league) are much better options.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
3/2:With two goals and no assists in his last eight games, it's safe to say the New York Islanders need center John Tavares to find his spark. He still paces the team with 30 goals and 64 points on the season, but with the Islanders going 3-6-1 in their last 10 games, it's becoming clear that they are not a playoff team. They are 31st in the NHL with 228 goals against on the year, and you have to imagine this might affect which jersey Tavares will wear next season.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
3/2:With seven points in his last seven games, New Jersey Devils defenseman Sami Vatanen (26 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) has emerged as the No. 1 defenseman in New Jersey. It was unclear what his offensive role would be on a team that already spouted Will Butcher (39 percent owned) and Damon Severson (5 percent), but Vatanen has cemented himself on the top power-play unit along with top minutes at even strength.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
3/2:Winnipeg Jets left wing Kyle Connor is reaping the rewards of playing on an elite line with Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. Connor has netted five goals and nine points through his past 11 contests, making the rookie fifth on his team in scoring and third in goals. Although the recent addition of Paul Stastny from the St. Louis Blues has bumped Connor down to the second-line power play, 17 of his 22 goals this season have come at even strength. Connor is only owned in 40.8 percent of ESPN leagues, making him very likely to be on your waiver wire. In mid to deep formats, Connor is a valuable commodity.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
3/2:Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray returned to practice Friday after missing the last two games with a concussion, a result of taking a puck to the head during practice. It's unclear if he'll suit up to face the Islanders on Saturday, but the first sign would be the Pens sending down either Tristan Jarry or Casey DeSmith. We'll keep you posted.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: Jason Mackey
3/2:Columbus Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson (56 percent owned) scored his 13th goal of the season last night in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings. While that only puts him at 26 points over the year, which is a far cry from what fantasy owners expected, he has piled up seven goals and 13 points over his last 16 games, spending most of that time on the top line with Artemi Panarin and Pierre-Luc Dubois (18 percent owned). If Atkinson is free in your pool, it's time to make some room for him.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
3/2:Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba has been slotted on the first line, playing beside Ryan Suter, and has already surpassed his career-high point total with 35 points in 64 games. Additionally, Dumba has seen an increase in usage, playing on average three minutes more than last year while getting solid time on the second power play. If you have a defensive spot open on your roster, Dumba is worth a stream, as he is likely on waivers (owned in only 79 percent of ESPN leagues). He can also provide you with solid peripherals, as he has 123 shots, 103 hits, 88 blocked shots and 37 PIM.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
3/2:Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban has been very streaky when it comes to goal scoring this year, having had multiple droughts that extended five games or more, but that is no reason to worry about the star. Subban is actually tied for his career best in goals (15) and boasts the best shooting percentage (9.4 percent) of his career. With the Predators having perhaps the best defense in the league, it is not surprising to see Subban play the second line on even strength, but he quarterbacks the first-line power play and leads his team in power-play assists. If all that was not enough, do not forget his 66 PIM, 89 hits and 160 shots. Fantasy owners should not panic about Subban.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
3/2:Nashville Predators winger Ryan Hartman (9 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) now has two points, four shots, and two hits in two games since being traded from the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday. In his first game in a Preds' uniform in Winnipeg on Tuesday, Hartman lit the lamp with the game-winning goal and added an assist in Edmonton on Thursday. While the tenacious winger has yet to take a step forward following an impressive rookie season last year, he could really benefit from the change of scenery coming over to one of the Western Conference's top teams. Hartman may be a sneaky pickup down the stretch for fantasy owners, especially those in hits leagues (he has 100 hits in 57 games). It will be important to monitor his usage over the next few weeks to see if he grabs more ice time and cements himself in Nashville’s top-six forward group. In the meantime, Hartman could provide streamer value to close out the week with games in Vancouver on Friday and Colorado on Sunday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
3/2:Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron is expected to be out at least two weeks with a fractured foot, which has pushed left wing Riley Nash onto the top line in Boston. Centering David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand has already translated to four points in two games for Nash. His upside will be limited somewhat due to his deployment, averaging only 14:32 time on ice the last two games and not seeing power-play time, but he is still worth a look. The Bruins play four times next week, making Nash, who is only owned in 10 percent of Yahoo leagues, a recommended add in weekly formats.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource:
3/2:Newly-acquired New Jersey Devils forward Patrick Maroon (38 percent owned) added two assists in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. His first helper came on the power play when he set up the red-hot Taylor Hall, whose 28th goal of the season gave him the longest "official" point streak for a Devils player at 16 games -- 23 games if you forgive the time lost to a thumb injury. The other assist set up Jesper Bratt (12 percent owned). With five penalty minutes, three shots on goal and two hits, the Devils might rejuvenate Maroon's season after all.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
