2 years agoNashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg recorded his 19th multi-point outing against the Tampa Bay Lightning, scoring two goals and an assist. The young Swede was a late scratch for Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, but clearly it was a minor injury, as Forsberg came back in force. He has surpassed his point total from last season (58) and is on the verge of setting a career high (64) in 15 fewer games. Incredibly, Forsberg is playing fewer minutes on average than his previous seasons but he is still experiencing the most efficient offensive season of his career due to his power-play production. He will continue playing on the top line on even strength and on the power play, and there is no reason to keep him out of your lineups for the rest of the year.--aayushdasSource: Hockey Reference

2 years agoAnaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson is injured again following an unfortunate incident that occurred in the team's 4-3 overtime win against Colorado on Sunday. His night ended with the opening period after Ryan Kesler shoved Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog into his own goalie. Gibson saved nine of 10 shots before being replaced by Ryan Miller for the second period. Miller started poorly, but recovered well and helped the team make a multi-goal comeback in the third period to win for just the second time this season. He finished with 19 saves and a .905 save percentage. Miller has done some solid work this season with a 9-6-6 record and a.925 save percentage, so the Ducks don't have to worry much if Gibson doesn't return straight away.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoNashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban posted two assists to help the Preds notch their 51st win of the season, a franchise record. Subban also registered a goal, reaching a career high with 16 goals, in the tilt against the Buffalo Sabres, ending a 12-game goalless drought. Although Subban was having a tough time getting one past the netminder, he was hardly useless during the span, registering 63 shots and 12 assists, with four them coming on the man advantage. Additionally, he's one minor penalty away from averaging a penalty minute per game and is only two power-play points shy of another career high. Subban continues to quarterback the top power-play line and should be a steady start on your roster.--aayushdasSource: Hockey Reference

2 years agoColumbus Blue Jackets winger Artemi Panari added four assists in Saturday's loss at Vancouver. With those four points, he tied his career high for a season, the first one coming in his rookie year with the Blackhawks. With three games left for the Blue Jackets, he is all but certain to set a new career best and prove to be one of the best acquisitions of the offseason. Those four points also gave him 25 in just 16 games in March, showing to be their most consistent offensive player.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoNew York Rangers defenseman Ryan Sproul picked up his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Sproul was recently called up for the Rangers, as they have had a youth movement on their roster. Sproul has only played 13 games with the Rangers and had tallied four assists to this point. He will continue to see good playing time as the season ends, and could have a larger role moving into next season.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoSt. Louis Blue goalie Carter Hutton saw his first action since March 3rd and gave up four goals off the bench. Hutton had been out with an injury for nearly the entire month of March, and this was a rough welcome back against a weaker Coyotes team. Hutton had been playing very well before missing time, as he is first in the league with only 2.14 GAA, and a .930 save percentage, which is second best in the league. The Blues are tied for the last wild-card spot, and with just four games left, hopefully, he can return to his prior form and clinch the spot.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoIt's been a very tight race for third place in the Pacific division between the Anaheim Ducks and the LA Kings. As of now, the Kings are one point (94) above the Ducks (93). With Saturday's game, the Ducks have one more game remaining than the Kings. They are looking for a crucial win at home Sunday over Colorado, who recently lost their best goalie. Look at Anaheim's top line in fantasy games, as they should find plenty of scoring opportunities because the Avalanche have had difficulty on away ice this season. Rickard Rakell (left wing), Ryan Getzlaf (center) and Corey Perry (right wing) all skate together and are the clear leaders of the Ducks this season.--Anthony VattimoSource: Daily Faceoff

2 years agoDallas Stars center Tyler Seguin had one goal, one assist along with six shots in Saturday's win over the Minnesota Wild. The Stars are technically still in the Wild Card hunt, and Seguin has been doing everything he can to keep them in it. He had 21 points in 16 games in March and was able to remain productive despite the Stars sustaining an eight-game losing streak last month. He posted a career high in goals this season with 40 and seems to be all for naught, as the Stars are on the verge of missing the playoffs.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoOn Saturday night, the Arizona Coyotes shut out the St. Louis Blues 6-0 on home ice. This was a huge win for the Coyotes, as it may be keeping the Blues out of playoff contention. Oliver Ekman-Larsson found two points, a goal and assist on four shots with a plus-three rating. Additionally, his defensive game is top notch as well, posting three hits and four blocked shots in 21:43 of ice time. Regardless of being last place in the Pacific division, the Coyotes offensive players are solid fantasy options right now, putting up 26 goals in their last seven matchups. They are ending their season on a positive note and not making it easy for any team underestimating them.--Anthony VattimoSource: St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2 years agoNashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne got pulled from Saturday's game versus the Sabres, after allowing six goals on 29 shots. Rinne has arguably been one, if not the top goalie in the league this season, making this a bit of an unusual outing for him. The Sabres are one of the weakest teams in the league, so to see him struggling could be cause for a bit of concern. It also could just be fatigue at this point, considering the Predators have their playoff spot clinched, but not yet locked into a spot. They are also in the mix for the President's Trophy, which would give them home ice throughout the playoffs, so think of this more as an outlier, and still should have full confidence in him.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoPittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin finished yesterday's game with two assists, to cap off a very productive March. Those two points came against the Canadiens, on route to a 5-2 victory, which allowed the Penguins to clinch a playoff spot. Malkin ended the month with 19 points in 15 games, along with 38 shots in that same span. Truly showing why he is still one of the players in the league, even after a decade of playing. The Penguins and their offense will continue to be one of the top offenses in the league and one you can rely on, in these final games.--Tom Vecchio - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

2 years agoThe Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux continued his incredible bounce back season by scoring a pair of goals Sunday against the Boston Bruins. The second goal was an incredibly filthy breakaway overtime game winner in a must win game for the Flyers. After a disappointing 58 point showing last season, Giroux has bounced back in an incredible manner. The Flyers captain has now set career highs in both Goals (29) & Assists (66) this season. What’s even crazier is that he has set this this milestone at the age of 30! I would say Claude Giroux is heating up at the right time, but the captain has been great all year. He’s an automatic must start in every league.--Amir SalehniaSource: nhl.com

2 years agoThe New Jersey Devils have found themselves in a bittersweet goaltending situation. Their original back up Keith Kinkaid has taken over the proverbial crease and has looked solid whilst doing it. On the season, Kinkaid has won 23 games whilst sporting a .910 save percentage & 2.89 GAA (Goals against average). Although Kinkaid has started the past five games, he will most likely be the backup for Sunday's fixture at Montreal so as to be given some rest following his victorious performance against the New York Islanders on Saturday. Kinkaid boasts less than 40% ownership percentage in both Yahoo & ESPN fantasy hockey leagues. If you’re in need of goaltending, Kinkaid makes for a great play down the stretch.--Amir SalehniaSource: dailyfaceoff.com

2 years agoDetroit Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin scored the game-winning goal on Saturday in a 2-0 win over the Ottawa Senators. That makes five points in the last three games for Larkin, who has been a large factor in Detroit's three game winning streak. The third-year pivot is only one point away from reaching 60 points for the first time in his career, and is firmly leading the Red Wings in points this season. Larkin has a paltry 6.3 shooting percentage this season, but has compensated by picking up 45 assists so far. If Larkin can return to the 10 percent shooting percentage that he enjoyed in his first two seasons, then he should reach 20 goals next season and solidify himself as a valuable fantasy player that should be on a roster in every league.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

2 years agoNew York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist stopped 40 shots in a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. The win brings his record up to 26-24-7 on the season and puts an end to a personal five-game losing streak. The King has recently declared his support and enthusiasm for the Rangers' quick rebuild, though it's unclear if upper management he's the goalie to get them through it. He remains a risky option for the rest of the season, but an intriguing one next year.--Barry MilesSource: TSN
