2 years agoOttawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson was pulled in the 7-2 loss to the Florida Panthers and was relieved by Mike Condon. Anderson gave up four goals on 17 shots, and understandably the team is a little rattled about the news surrounding Erik Karlsson's family. This game now puts Anderson with a record of 21-21-6 with a .901 save percentage, and there is no doubt it's definitely not a good year for him. If you are an owner of Anderson, unless you need to hit the minimum amount of goalie starts, he should be benched until Karlsson returns.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

2 years agoFlorida Panthers forward Aleksander Barkov produced two assists in the 7-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Monday. Barkov has easily been one of the best players in the second half of the season, with 12 points in his last 10 games, putting him at 73 points in 70 games played. Barkov has also gelled with linemates Evgenii Dadonov and Nick Bjugstad, as those two have very similar production over the last couple of weeks. Barkov is a must-start down the stretch in all formats and will be an intriguing fantasy option next season.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

2 years agoFlorida Panthers goaltender James Reimer made 33 saves on 35 shots in the 7-2 win against the Ottawa Senators. Reimer has always historically done really well against the Senators, with a 12-5-2 record and a .929 save percentage, and Tuesday he did just that. This win now gives Reimer wins in his last three starts. With the Panthers firing on all cylinders right now, Reimer is one of the best backup streamers currently. However, the Panthers do not play another back-to-back this week, so Reimer most likely will not get a start in.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

2 years agoFlorida Panthers forward Frank Vatrano scored a goal and added an assist in the 7-2 win against the Ottawa Senators. At the deadline, Florida decided to take a gamble on Vatrano, who was known for lighting up the minors but just could never produce at the NHL level, and the team gave up a 2018 third-round pick for him. So far, the trade is looking nice for Florida, as Vatrano has three goals and one assist in six games for the Panthers thus far. While he is only on the third line, Vatrano takes a lot of shots (he took eight in the game) and also has center, left wing and right wing eligibility on Yahoo. In deeper leagues, you should pick him up if you need someone who shoots and can be put at any position.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

2 years agoWinnipeg Jets winger Kyle Connor netted two goals against the Los Angeles Kings, including the overtime winner. After an eight-game drought, Connor has now picked up five goals in his last four contests, giving him 27 on the season. Hopefully Connor has put his dry spell behind him, as he has now passed Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat (25) for second among rookies in goals. The Jets are hoping to clinch a playoff spot and Patrik Laine's injury will force the rest of the squad to fill the void. Connor is still only owned in 34 percent of ESPN leagues and could get some time on the first-line power play. He is a strong streaming option, so you should keep an eye on him.--aayushdasSource: nhl.com

2 years agoNew York Islanders center John Taveres didn't have quite as good a game as his teammate, Mathew Barzal, but it was still fantastic - he had two assists to help the Isles thrash the Penguins, 4-1. Tavares now has 43 assists as he quietly plays the part of the second-best player on the team. He's worth having on anyone's roster, even if the Islanders face a tough game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoWinnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine has left Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Kings after blocking a shot from defenseman Alec Martinez in the second period. Laine struggled to get back to the bench and immediately went to the locker room. He was tied with Alex Ovechkin in the race for the Rocket Richard Trophy with 43 points and was on pace for 77 points this season before his unfortunate injury. Fantasy owners will be hoping his injury is minor. With 12 goals in his last nine games, he was an absolute powerhouse and will be missed. The full extent of the injury is unknown, so try not to overreact and keep him in your roster.--aayushdasSource: Winnipeg Jets Twitter

2 years agoNew York Islanders center Mathew Barzal continued his strong season by getting a goal (No. 20) and an assist (No. 55) as New York handily beat Pittsburgh, 4-1. Barzal has been a bright spot in a campaign that has been marked by a recent spiral down the drain. His 75 points put him in the top 20 and his assist total puts him in the top 10. He's got a tough matchup on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but keep him in your lineup.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoSan Jose Sharks goaltender Martin Jones will start for the team in Tuesday's home game against the New Jersey Devils and he'll be looking for his second shutout of the year against them after making 28 saves in a 3-0 win on Oct. 20. Jones is on a three-game winning streak, even though he's allowed at least three goals in every game, but luckily for him, the team is currently scoring goals like there's no tomorrow, so he's in a good spot to get another win to his name. Jones has a very strong home record in 26 starts this season, going 15-8-2 while giving up 2.37 goals per game and recording a .916 save percentage.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Kurz

2 years agoVancouver Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom will start against the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, even though he's going through a rough patch with seven losses in the last eight outings. It's his second start against Vegas this season after a 25-save effort on Nov. 16 in a 5-2 loss. He also made a relief appearance against the Knights on Feb. 23, allowing no goals and making eight saves in the final period. Markstrom has won only eight of 22 road starts this season and the team has just four road wins since December, so fantasy owners should avoid him like the plague.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Brendan Batchelor

2 years agoVegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury looks to have a good chance to pick up a second consecutive shutout when the team takes the ice on Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks, who have been awful offensively since losing Brock Boeser (back). They have been shut out in three of the last four games and they managed to score only on the power play in the last game against San Jose. Travis Green's team has also scored just once in their last four road outings. Fleury has a 13-7-2 record in 22 home starts this season, giving up 2.44 goals per game and posting a .919 save percentage.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Steve Carp

2 years agoEdmonton Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot will look to keep up his recent hot form after getting the nod for Tuesday's meeting with the Hurricanes. He's been superb in the last couple of weeks, winning four of his last five starts while allowing 1.60 goals per game and recording a .954 save percentage. He had 40 saves in his last outing, with the Oilers picking up an impressive 4-2 road win at Florida. This season overall, Talbot has gone 10-14-1 in 27 road starts, allowing 2.88 goals per game and posting a .908 save percentage. The 'Canes have won just five home games since the start of last month, so it might be a good opportunity for Talbot to improve his road numbers.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Jack Michaels

2 years agoOttawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Florida Panthers. Karlsson missed practice on Monday due to what was reported by some as an illness, but the Senators have since issued a press release that Karlsson and his wife Melinda have lost their son. Ottawa plays two more games this week, but there is no guarantee that Karlsson will rejoin the team in that time as he and his family mourn their loss. Until more is released, plan to be without Karlsson for the near-future.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Sportsnet

2 years agoMontreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will make his first start since returning from injury on Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Price dressed, but did not play, in Monday’s game against the Florida Panthers. This will be Price’s first game action since suffering a concussion on Feb. 20. Montreal is in the middle of a three-game losing streak and have been held scoreless in each of their last two games. Montreal’s offense is likely to wake up at some point, but it is not an encouraging trend for anyone looking to get a win from Price. Further downgrading Price’s outlook is the fact he is facing a Penguins team that scores 3.26 goals per game, which is sixth best in the league. It is encouraging to get Price back, but he has been having a down year, and that is unlikely to change now that he has returned.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: John Lu

2 years agoPhiladelphia Flyers goaltender Petr Mrazek will get the nod Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings, the team he was traded from at the deadline this season. Mrazek is 5-5-1 with a 3.14 goals-against average since donning a Flyers jersey, which is somehow worse than when he was a Red Wing. Despite this, he won his last start in a 6-3 victory over the Capitals on Sunday, and Detroit comes in having lost 10 in a row. He's not the worst bet for the win Tuesday.--Barry MilesSource: Sam Carchidi
