Tampa Bay Lightning right winger Nikita Kucherov recorded three assists on Saturday afternoon as the Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-6 in a shootout. The Russian showed no rust in his return to action after missing two games with an upper-body injury. With 85 points, Kucherov currently leads the NHL this season after adding his 50th, 51st and 52nd assists in the offensively-charged match. Look for Kucherov to continue his impressive performance as Tampa seeks to solidify their place atop the Atlantic Division, Eastern Conference and NHL through the remainder of the regular season.

1 year agoOttawa Senators goalie Mike Condon will start the back end of a road back-to-back set of games for the Senators on Saturday night. Ottawa has momentum coming in to this game, coming off of an upset win over the Vegas Golden Knights, but it may not be enough to overcome Condon's recent play. He has not won a game since February 1st and has a save percentage of only .888 over his last five appearances, so while the matchup against the Coyotes may look good, Condon does not inspire optimism. If you have other options available, use them.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: TSN on Twitter
1 year agoBuffalo Sabres star center Jack Eichel remains out indefinitely with a high ankle sprain. Next Sunday will be four weeks since he was injured, and with an initial return timeline of four to six weeks, he could be nearing a return. Keep in mind that he also suffered a high ankle sprain in 2016 and took seven weeks to return to the lineup. Even if Eichel returns in time for the fantasy playoffs, he likely will not be at full health. Do not count on Eichel being Eichel for the remainder of this year.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Sporting News
1 year agoTampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos scored twice and earned three primary assists at home in a 7-6 shootout win over the Philadelphia Flyers. The Lightning captain scored a power-play goal halfway through the first period and added his second mark in the third. Stamkos also added with two assists in the second period and then earned his 50th helper of the season on defenseman Victor Hedman’s goal, which brought the score to 6-5 with 10 minutes left in the final period. The game ended up going to a scoreless overtime before Stamkos contributed the game-winning shootout winner in the third round. The Canadian-born center now has 27 goals this season and continues to be a must-start going into the fantasy playoffs.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoTampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Miller was recently traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning along with Ryan McDonagh, and in his short tenure so far, Miller has done a great job. Miller scored a goal and logged 19:39 of ice time in the 7-6 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers. The goal gives Miller a two-game point streak and now puts him at a point per game with the Lightning. While he was not great at face-offs Saturday with a face-off percentage of 29 percent, this opened up an opportunity to play on the second-line right wing with Yanni Gourde and Brayden Point, as well as the second power-play unit. The ability for Miller to be placed at any forward fantasy position (center, left wing, right wing) alone is enough incentive for him to be used as a must-own utility player in all formats.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoNew Jersey Devils forward Kyle Palmieri (54% owned in Yahoo! leagues) has been racking up the points playing with Taylor Hall, amassing 15 in his last 17 games. That brings his total to 31 points on the season. He has also been producing about three shots and 1.5 hits per game, making him a must-add in most formats.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoToronto Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen disliked the wind in his last outdoor game in which he gave up four goals but earned the win, and he will have to deal with tough conditions against the Capitals on Saturday as well. He will get the start and try to snap Toronto's two-game losing streak. After yielding three goals in each of his last three starts, it is unlikely that trend stops against a Washington team that averages 3.05 goals per game. That being said, the weather may aid his efforts, and opposing netminder Braden Holtby has not won a game since Feb. 9. Do not shy away from Andersen here.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Lance Hornby - Toronto Sun
1 year agoOttawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan has been heating up as of late. Since returning from his hand injury, he has totaled five points, including a goal. He also had two assists and 16:05 of ice time against the Vegas Golden Knights. Ryan is currently on the first even-strength line with Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Mark Stone, while also playing on the second power-play unit. He has also provided hits for those in banger leagues, as he currently has 72 hits in 43 games this season. Given these factors, Ryan should be owned in deep 12-team leagues right now and should be added to the watch list.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoMontreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty suffered a lower-body injury in the game against the New York Islanders on March 2 and did not return to the game. He has also been ruled out of the game versus the Boston Bruins and was sent back to Montreal for further medical evaluation. Pacioretty has been one of fantasy hockey's biggest disappointments this year, only amassing 17 goals and 37 points in 64 games this season, far from his usual 30 goals a year. Owners of Pacioretty in fantasy should keep an eye out on the official diagnosis of his injury, but for right now consider him day-to-day. Provided Pacioretty misses games, Arturri Lehkonen would move up to the first power-play unit and Alex Galchenyuk would slot in on the first even-strength line for Montreal.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: Montreal Canadiens on Twitter
1 year agoOttawa Senators forward Mark Stone has been one of the NHL's hottest players in the month of February. On March 2 against the Vegas Golden Knights, Stone scored once again and added another assist to his repertoire, giving him 59 points in 54 games this season. In the last two weeks, Stone is tied for second place in points with 12 in his last seven games. Stone remains one of the cornerstones of the Senators franchise and will continue to produce at a point-per-game rate for the rest of the season. Stone should be owned in all fantasy formats and is a must-start right now, especially with the favorable fantasy playoff schedule that the Senators have.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoNew York Rangers forward Ryan Spooner (15 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) has been killing it for his new team. He has now posted a goal and six assists in three games since being acquired from the Bruins. While this deal sent Rick Nash to Boston, Spooner has slid into Nash's role. He has spent most of his time on a line with Jesper Fast (0 percent owned) and Kevin Hayes (14 percent), and the second power-play unit with newly-acquired Vladislav Namestnikov (72 percent).--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoNew York Rangers rookie defenseman John Gilmour (0 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) has been playing on the top power-play unit since the departure of former captain Ryan McDonagh. In 11 games this season, the 24-year-old has only two points (both goals) but has fired an impressive 34 shots in that span. Before the call-up, Gilmore racked up 26 points in 44 games with their AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, and is worth keeping an eye on, as his even-strength time on ice keeps climbing as well.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoEdmonton Oilers forward Ryan Strome is now on a four-game point streak, totaling six points while splitting his goals and assists at three apiece. He skates on the third line next to Pontus Aberg and Jesse Puljujarvi, but his real production is coming from his time on the top power-play line next to Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. This is impressive considering his time on ice has slightly dropped over the past week. While Edmonton is not in contention for a postseason berth, keep your eye on Strome for fantasy production (only 8 percent owned in ESPN leagues). Look for him to keep rolling Saturday against a Rangers defense that is ranked 31st against opposing centers.--Anthony Vattimo - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoVegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has been an elite goaltender during the 2018 season, but he has shown signs of weakness over his past few outings. In his last start against Ottawa, he produced his lowest save percentage of the season (.868), letting in five goals on 38 shots. Since the All-Star break, he has still posted a winning record of 9-4-1, but has let in significantly more goals and has not posted a shutout. Looking ahead at the Golden Knights next four games, they face the Devils, Blue Jackets, Red Wings and Sabers. All of these matchups should be considered a test for him to see if he can put up the elite numbers we are used to. Vegas can only rely on their offense for a limited time and need Fleury to find his rhythm again.--Anthony Vattimo - RotoBallerSource: Hockey-Reference
1 year agoSt. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko has a career high of 35 points, but he averages 21 minutes of time on the ice. This is mainly because he plays a good defensive game. Unfortunately, this does not always translate to fantasy relevance. Parayko is on pace for his best season with 37 points, but he is now on the second line and has a 3 percent shot accuracy. It is hard to believe that Parayko is going to explode in production anytime soon. Even Parayko's peripherals are subpar. If you can cash in on his big name, now might be a good time to do it.--Aayush Das - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
