1 year agoFlorida Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad (19 percent owned on Yahoo) cannot stay off the scoreboard right now, as he scored a hat trick in the 5-4 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The line of Aleksander Barkov, Evgenii Dadonov and Bjugstad continues to be the hottest line in the NHL currently, and it is not even close. Bjugstad also registered seven shots in the loss and continues to be a solid free agent for shots on goal. If by some miracle Bjugstad is still available in your league, now is the time to pull the trigger and pick him up before somebody else does.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens goaltender Charlie Lindgren made 27 saves and allowed all six goals in the 6-4 loss to the New Jersey Devils. This is bad timing, as many streamed Lindgren for this game, as he was coming into this game with a .931 save percentage. The Canadiens goaltending situation without Carey Price is a little too complicated with Antti Niemi and Lindgren currently splitting starts, and fantasy owners looking to stream a goalie should only stream one of these two against a bottom-10 team.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens defenseman Mike Reilly (0 percent owned) produced two assists in the 6-4 loss to the New Jersey Devils. Reilly, who was acquired from the Minnesota Wild for a fifth-round pick, has fit in quite nicely with the Canadiens, as he currently has four assists in four games with his new team. In the loss against the Devils, Reilly also logged the second most ice time among Canadiens defenseman with 21:49 minutes. Keep an eye on Reilly right now, as the Canadiens are clearly trusting him on the blue line early, and he may continue to produce at a similar rate.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher (51 percent owned) increased his personal point streak to four games with a goal against the New Jersey Devils. Gallagher has been one of the only bright spots for the Montreal Canadiens recently, and they will be looking at any forward to step up in the absence of Max Pacioretty. As of right now, Gallagher is playing on the second line with Philip Danault and Nikita Scherbak, while also playing on the first power-play unit. If you are in need of a right wing in fantasy hockey, pick up Gallagher if he is on the wire.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens forward Jacob De La Rose (0 percent owned) scored two goals in the 6-4 loss against the New Jersey Devils. De La Rose also led all Canadiens forwards in ice time with 15:53 minutes. He now has four points in his last four games and Montreal will look at De La Rose and other young wingers such as Artturi Lehkonen and Nikita Scherbak to step up and become leaders in the absence of Max Pacioretty. It should be considered that De La Rose is only playing third-line time right now. However, with this production, we could be looking at a promotion in the lines sometime soon. He should be kept on all watch lists right now.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoDetroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader has points in three straight games. The physical winger is not known for his scoring ability; his career high is 44 points set in 2014-15. Abdelkader assisted on Anthony Mantha’s second goal of the game, which brought the Wings within one late in the second period. Despite the recent output, Abdelkader’s left and right wing eligibility is really his only attractive trait. If you need a spot start on the wing, Detroit does have two more games this week, as Las Vegas visits Little Caesars Arena Thursday and the Wings travel to Columbus on Friday.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoDetroit Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha scored two goals and tacked on two assists in the Red Wings overtime loss to the Bruins Tuesday. Four sets a record for most points in a game for the young winger. The team’s goal production was a pleasant surprise for the Red Wings, who have had trouble producing much offense this season. Mantha is a talented player and has always been known as more of a scorer than a playmaker. You cannot count on this kind of production on a nightly basis, though, as he had just one goal in his last seven games prior to Tuesday.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand netted a hat trick, including the overtime winner, as the Bruins completed the season sweep over Detroit on Tuesday. Marchand has played some inspired hockey against the Red Wings this season, totaling five goals, two of which were game-winners, and five assists in three games. The Bruins winger also scored in overtime to lift Boston over the visiting Canadiens on Saturday. Marchand is putting together another stellar fantasy season and has shown he can be productive night in and night out.

1 year agoDetroit Red Wings backup goalie Jared Coreau lasted just over a period against the Bruins on Tuesday night. He made just 12 stops on 16 shots before head coach Jeff Blashill decided he had enough. The starting job in Detroit has largely belonged to Jimmy Howard this season, and even more so since the Red Wings traded Petr Mrazek to the Flyers. Coreau may get another shot as Detroit has back-to-back games later this week, but until he shows some stronger play, he is not worth adding in any format.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoColumbus Blue Jackets right winger Cam Atkinson is shaking off the poor start from earlier this season. Although the elusive forward failed to replicate the stunning form he produced last season consistently throughout this year, he has been showing signs of life as of late. With five points in his last five games as well as 10 in his last 14 games, it may be a good idea to check the fantasy wire for his availability. In the past 30 days, Atkinson has put up a total of five goals and five assists, adding 52 shots on goal while averaging 19:11 minutes per contest. Since returning from injury, the elusive winger has been linking up well with Artemi Panarin both on the first line and the first power-play unit. Atkinson is owned in less than 65 percent of both Yahoo and ESPN Leagues. Check your waiver wire.--Amir Salehnia - RotoBallerSource: dailyfaceoff.com
1 year agoVancouver Canucks right wing Brock Boeser is likely done for the season after suffering a lower back injury in Monday's tilt against the Islanders. The 21-year-old rookie sensation had a nasty fall, going back-first into an open bench door, and he's set to miss four to six weeks. There are just over four weeks left in the regular season, so it's highly unlikely we'll see Boeser again. He'll end his rookie year with 29 goals and 55 points in 62 games. Jake Virtanen, who had two points against the Isles, looks likely to get promoted to the top line to replace Boeser.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Vancouver Canucks
1 year agoPhiladelphia Flyers forward Travis Konecny (48 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) has hit his stride recently, recording 11 points in his last 13 games. It is not hard to figure out why, as he has spent the majority of that time on the top line with Claude Giroux (97 percent owned) and Sean Couturier (85 percent owned). All of those points have come at even strength, which is somewhat understandable being stuck on the second power-play unit, but it still leaves something to be desired. Despite this, Konecny could be a great add for a playoff run, as he is tri-eligible (center, left wing, right wing) and is only beginning to show us what he is capable of.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoFlorida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo will get the start on Tuesday night as the Panthers take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. Luongo has won five straight games, giving up just one goal to the Philadelphia Flyers in his last match on Sunday. The Lightning have been a force to reckon with this season, however, leading the league in goals per game at 3.56 in 2017-18. Luongo has posted a 2.50 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 2017-18, and the Panthers will look for him to keep the Tampa offense at bay.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
1 year agoColumbus Blue Jackets goaltender Joonas Korpisalo will cover for Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) Tuesday against the visiting Vegas Golden Knights. The young netminder has struggled in limited starts for the Blue Jackets this season, allowing five goals in each of his past two starts. Things will not get much easier, as the Knights have one of the most (surprisingly) potent offenses in the league. There are much better options out there. Leave Korpisalo off of your roster Tuesday.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: George Richards
1 year agoNew Jersey Devils goaltender Keith Kinkaid will take on the visiting Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday. The Devils are on a three-game losing streak and are looking to Kinkaid to right the ship. He's won five of his last seven starts. It's always a good bet to play your goalies against the Habs, though Montreal rookie goalie Charlie Lindgren has gone 2-1-0 on the road this season with a .950 save percentage. Despite this, Kinkaid looks like a safe bet to get the win Tuesday.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: Mike Morreale
