1 year agoToronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen surrendered five goals for the second game in a row in a 5-3 loss against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. Toronto has now lost four games in a row, with Andersen being in net for three of those games. Andersen and the Leafs gave up two goals in the opening four minutes of the game. Toronto did manage to battle back and tie the match halfway through the second period before they were then outscored by the Sabres 3-1 in the remainder of the game. Andersen made 19 saves on 24 shots in the loss, bringing his season total to a league high of 1,895 shots faced. Andersen and the Leafs will need to be better in March and April if they look to hold onto their current position of third in the Atlantic Division. Toronto has a bit of a break before they return to action on Saturday at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoDallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop exited early in his team's eventual 3-2 overtime loss against the Senators on Monday. After getting tripped up by Stars defenseman Dan Hamhuis, Bishop brought play to a halt about midway through the first frame. After seeking medical attention, Bishop ended up finishing the period before getting replaced by backup goaltender Kari Lehtonen for the start of the second period. The Stars have already announced that the 6-foot-7 goaltender will miss Tuesday's matchup in Nashville as well as Friday's game at home against the Ducks. It is expected that there will be an update regarding Bishop's status when the team returns home on Wednesday. In the meantime, look for Lehtonen (17 wins, 2.37 goals-against average, .916 save percentage) to man the crease for at least the next two games.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Mike Heika
1 year agoBoston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask did not practice on Monday and may not return to the Bruins starting lineup on Tuesday for their match against the Detroit Red Wings. The Finnish goaltender did not play on Saturday versus Montreal, with Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy citing a “very minor injury” that kept Rask out of the crease for the rivalry game. It is unclear as to whether the injury is serious enough to be an ongoing concern as the Bruins make a push for the playoffs, or if the team is just allowing Rask to rest while Bruins backup netminder Anton Khudobin is performing well. Rask has appeared in 42 of the Bruins 63 games played this season, carrying a 26-11-4 record with a 2.27 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage. After Tuesday’s match, the Bruins return to action on Thursday night versus the Philadelphia Flyers.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource: Joe Haggerty,
1 year agoDallas Stars center Tyler Seguin registered his 35th and 36th goals of the season on Monday night in an overtime loss against the Senators. Seguin's attempted cross-crease pass ricocheted off a Senator defenseman's skate to open the scoring at 4:36 and then scored the game-tying goal with just 1:08 remaining. The beat goes on for the Ontario native, as he now has 19 points in 15 games since the calendar flipped to February (15 games), including a six-game point streak. Seguin will head into Tuesday's game in Nashville with 62 points in 66 games played and should obviously be a staple in all fantasy lineups at this point in the season.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoOttawa Senators forward Matt Duchene (44% owned in Yahoo) scored a goal and added an assist in the 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars. While much criticism has been aimed at Duchene for his rough start when he was traded, he has been quite solid as of late and has registered 10 points in his last 11 games. Duchene provides solid value for face-off leagues as well, being a right wing-eligible forward. If he is available in your league, you should consider an add if you are in need of either face-offs or consistent point production.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBuffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen created two assists in the 5-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ristolainen continues to not only be one of the best defenseman for solid production in shots, hits and blocks, but he also has been putting up points on the board as of late. With six points in his last six games, Ristolainen is emerging as one of the league's best defenseman for fantasy hockey. If by some miracle he is still available in your league, pick him up right now.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBuffalo Sabres forward Sam Reinhart (36 percent owned in Yahoo leagues) scored a goal and added an assist in the 5-3 win versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Reinhart has been playing on the first line and the first power-play unit, producing at a great rate since the promotion. In his last seven games, Reinhart has seven points for a point-per-game pace. Reinhart should be owned in all fantasy formats, as his center, left wing and right wing eligibility in fantasy allows for extreme flexibility.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBuffalo Sabres goalie Chad Johnson is stringing together several quality starts of late, most recently turning aside 38 of 41 shots faced in the Sabres’ win over the Maple Leafs on Monday. He now has wins in five of his last six starts, all of which have come against the three best teams in the Atlantic Division. During this surprise stretch, Johnson’s only sub-.925 save percentage was in the 5-3 win over the Lightning on Feb. 13. Given that Buffalo is in the basement in the standings, picking up Johnson would not come without sizable risk, but if you are in need of goalie starts, he may just be a dark horse. Odds are he is available.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoWith news of Tuukka Rask still dealing with a minor injury, the Boston Bruins will likely look to give goalie Anton Khudobin his second consecutive start as they host the Red Wings at TD Garden Tuesday. The Bruins have beaten the Red Wings in each of their three meetings this season and will look to complete the season sweep at home. Khudobin has been dependable when called upon this season, sporting a 14-4-4 record and is coming off a strong start against Montreal on Saturday. Khudobin is an attractive option in most formats, as the Bruins play four games this week, including back-to-back games with Chicago over the weekend.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: Boston Bruins on Twitter
1 year agoBoston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy (ankle) has been ruled out for Boston’s Tuesday night matchup with the Detroit Red Wings. The Bruins rookie left Saturday’s game against Montreal in the first period with what appeared to be an ankle injury. Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy had no further update on McAvoy, who did not practice on Monday and remains day-to-day. McAvoy has been solid on Boston’s blue line this season, recording 32 points and maintaining a plus-26 plus/minus in 59 games played. Keep an eye open for any further updates as the week progresses.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoLooking to continue his vintage 2011 Art Ross form, Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin is on a monstrous run of form as of late. Having notched 13 points in his past nine games (eight goals, five assists), Sedin is looking to continue his recent tear against the struggling New York Islanders. Although he is no longer the first-line winger commodity he once was, Sedin is still playing alongside his brother Henrik, albeit on the second line. He has been putting plenty of pucks on net (24 shots on goal in the past nine games) and is still playing on the Vancouver Canucks top power-play unit. It is baffling how he has a less than 60 percent ownership in both Yahoo and ESPN leagues. With the Vancouver Canucks set to play four times this week, it is time to pick him up.--Amir Salehnia - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoNew York Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak will guard the crease Monday, according to the Isles official Twitter account. Halak has lost his last five outings, allowing a combined 18 goals against, contributing to what has been an awful year for the netminder. He usually stands a chance at getting the win with the high-scoring Islanders offense in front of him, but they've managed just two wins in their last 10 games and sit five points out of the playoffs. If Halak and the Islanders stand any chance of making it into the postseason, they will have to start by winning Monday against the lowly Canucks.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: New York Islanders
1 year agoVancouver Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom has been awful in recent outings, but he'll keep his place as a starter on Monday. He gave up three goals on five shots last Wednesday against the Rangers before getting pulled and allowed four goals on Friday in a 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville. He won't have it easy Monday, as the high-scoring Islanders are in town. Markstrom has won only nine of 25 starts at home this season, with the last one coming on Feb. 1 against Chicago. Vancouver has also lost four in a row against the Isles.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Vancouver Canucks
1 year agoAn unfortunate injury slowed St. Louis Blues forward Jaden Schwartz from the best season in his career. Before his injury, Schwartz had 35 points in 30 games, but while he has seen some regression, he is still producing at a point-per-game pace. Playing on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko has provided both Braden Schenn and Schwartz with their best seasons in their careers. Schwartz and Schenn might not be playing with Tarasenko right now, but the three of them have a 57.76 percent Corsi For and should be reunited soon.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
1 year agoArizona Coyotes goalie Antti Raanta will guard the net once again on Monday in Edmonton, and he'll be searching for his fourth straight win. The 28-year-old Finn has been superb lately, losing just once since Feb. 12, and he has two shutouts in the last five starts. One of these came a couple of weeks ago at home against the Oilers, when he had 40 saves in a 1-0 win. However, the Coyotes have lost three in a row in Edmonton and they've picked up just eight road wins this season, so there should be better fantasy options in goal on Monday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Arizona Coyotes
