2 years agoArizona Coyotes forward Clayton Keller is now the best rookie goal scorer in the team's colors after netting his 23rd of the season with an empty-netter in Monday's 4-1 win over Tampa. He also recorded an assist, making it four multi-point games in a row while extending his point streak to nine outings. Keller is up to 38 assists and 61 points for the season, which are both also Coyotes rookie records. The team is finishing the season well with him in top form, and Keller could be near the 70-point mark when it's all said and done. Arizona has six more games left.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoMontreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher scored two goals in the 4-2 win against the Detroit Red Wings. These two goals both simultaneously gave Gallagher his first career 30-goal season, but they also gave Gallagher a career-high 49 points. For someone who only scored 29 points and 10 goals in 64 games last year, Gallagher is enjoying a nice bounce-back season. The Canadiens will look to Gallagher to be one of the main goal scorers next year, and he will be given every chance to succeed. Provided that the Canadiens sign a center this offseason, Gallagher could get even higher amounts of goals and points and should be a target for your drafts next season.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoFlorida Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad scored a goal in the 3-0 win over the New York Islanders. Bjugstad has been a key part of the Panthers recently-found success, as he now has eight points in his last 10 games and has 24 points in 27 games since the All-Star break. The line of Aleksander Barkov, Evgenii Dadonov and Bjugstad has easily been the best line in the NHL in March and they show no signs of stopping with a clear playoff-push motive. Bjugstad will be a solid late-round draft choice in re-draft leagues next season, provided he stays with Barkov.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoFlorida Panthers goaltender James Reimer recorded a 32-save shutout in the 3-0 win against the New York Islanders. In the absence of Roberto Luongo, Reimer has been absolutely fantastic, registering four wins in four games with two shutouts and a .971 save percentage. Luongo will be back in action soon -- he was actually projected to start against the Islanders -- so Reimer will go back to holding little value, but this may open some eyes for head coach Bob Boughner, as he may lean towards starting Reimer more in the future.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoTampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Miller assisted on a goal in the 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Despite Ryan McDonagh being the key piece in the trade with the New York Rangers, it's not that hard to see why many would think that Miller is the main piece right now. Officially through 13 games with his new team, he's scored as many points with seven goals and six assists. Now running lines with Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos, Miller could be an extremely valuable fantasy asset next year, provided these conditions remain.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoOttawa Senators forward Matt Duchene produced an assist in the 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. Since the All-Star break, Duchene now has 26 points in 28 games and has easily been one of the best forwards on the Senators this season. Duchene has also looked to build some chemistry with forwards like Bobby Ryan and Mike Hoffman this year. If this is any sign of what's to come next year for Duchene, he could be an extremely valuable sleeper, especially considering the only direction Ottawa can go is up from this point.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoDetroit Red Wings goaltender Jared Coreau will get the start in Montreal on Monday night. Coreau has not played in three games after starting the final game in Detroit's 10-game losing streak. No. 1 goalie Jimmy Howard will get the night off after losing his last two starts. While Coreau has had his struggles, Montreal is only scoring 2.50 goals per game, which is the fourth worst mark in the league. Montreal has only won two of their last 10 games. However, Detroit has only earned one win in their last 10 games. In a battle of two struggling teams, Coreau should not be an option you look for Monday.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Dana Wakiji
2 years agoTampa Bay Lightning goaltender Louis Domingue will get the start on Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Domingue has won each of his last four starts and posted a .923 save percentage in those games. The former Coyote is competing with fellow backup goaltender Peter Budaj to be the primary backup to Andrei Vasilevskiy for the rest of the season and the playoffs. If he can continue playing how he has recently, there will be more starts to come, as the Lightning look to rest Vasilevskiy before the playoffs. Domingue is as good of a spot start option as you will find Monday.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Bryan Burns
2 years agoArizona Coyotes defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson won't suit up again this season, as he's ruled out for the rest of the year with an upper-body injury. The team will be left with a depleted blue line, as Jason Demers went down with a season-ending upper-body injury as well last week. Hjalmarsson provided a team-leading 2.5 blocks per game in his debut season in the desert, but it was a tough year for him, as he managed to suit up for only 48 games. Luke Schenn moved up in the lineup last game to eat up some of Hjalmarsson's minutes, while 22-year-old Trevor Murphy made his NHL debut. Murphy has 30 points in 56 AHL games this season and it will be interesting to see if he can also produce on the highest level. He will at least have a chance to impress.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Craig Morgan
2 years agoMontreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher has scored three points in his last three games, which is his third three-game point streak in the month of March. Each of his last two point streaks ended after three games, but the Canadiens will face the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night, and the Red Wings have allowed an average of four goals per game in March. The Red Wings will also be starting their backup goaltender, Jared Coreau, who has not won a game yet this season and has a well below-average .856 save percentage. Monday night is a solid opportunity for Montreal’s forwards, and that is especially true for Gallagher, who will be looking to increase his team-leading 28 goals.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource:
2 years agoTampa Bay Lightning center Tyler Johnson was skating on the top line with Nikita Kucherov and J.T. Miller on Monday morning. Steven Stamkos will not play Monday night, which has opened the top-line center spot for Johnson. The Lightning are playing at home against the Arizona Coyotes before playing back-to-back road games later in the week, so this is likely just an opportunity to get Stamkos some rest as the season winds down. Johnson has only scored one point in his last six games, but playing alongside Kucherov should provide a great chance to improve on those numbers, even if only for a night. Johnson is an inexpensive option in daily fantasy that should outperform his cost Monday.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Erik Erlendsson
2 years agoPittsburgh Penguins forward Derick Brassard (37 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) scored a goal in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win against the Philadelphia Flyers to push his point streak to six points in six games. The 30-year-old trade-deadline acquisition has spent most of his time in Pittsburgh on the third line between Phil Kessel and Conor Sheary -- about as good as it gets for third liners. If their chemistry continues, Brassard could be a sneaky add for the last week of the fantasy playoffs. He's now at eight points in 13 games as a Penguin.--Barry MilesSource: NHL
2 years agoCalgary Flames goaltender Mike Smith, who sat out the team's 5-1 loss to San Jose on Saturday, will be back between the pipes for Monday's tilt with the Kings. Things have been really ugly for the team and Smith lately, as he's lost four starts in a row and the Flames have won just once in the last seven outings. It likely won't get any better Monday either, as they have a depleted lineup, starting Michael Frolik, Mikael Backlund and Troy Brouwer on the first line. However, Smith does have a good 2-0-1 record against the Kings this season, allowing 2.59 goals per game with a .922 save percentage.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Derek Wills
2 years agoWashington Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer will get the nod Monday night as the Caps visit the New York Rangers. The German netminder won his last start in Montreal despite allowing four goals on 21 shots. The fact that he's starting again Monday despite a healthy Braden Holtby implies the starter's job is his to lose, at least for the moment. Monday will hopefully be an easier win for Grubauer, as the Rangers have won only three of their last nine games, though they've scored an average of 3.33 goals per game during that span.--Barry MilesSource: Isabelle Khurshudyan
2 years agoVegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will make another start against Colorado on Monday after suffering a tough 2-1 shootout loss against them on Saturday. He had a solid outing with 29 saves, but sadly for him, the team couldn't score more than once with 40 shots on goal. Fleury has a 14-7-2 record in 23 home starts this season, allowing 2.40 goals per game with a .920 save percentage. It's a tricky matchup for him and the team, as the Knights have recently cooled off on home ice, winning just twice in the last six games and the Avs come in with a three-game winning streak on the road, allowing just one goal in each outing.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Sheng Peng
