1 year agoDetroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin has only scored two goals in games away from Little Caesar's Arena this year. It is not for a lack of opportunity, as Larkin leads all Red Wings in shots on goal in away games, but his awful 2.22 shooting percentage in those games has made it tough to count on Larkin every night. He has racked up 23 assists on the road, however, and linemate Andreas Athanasiou has scored in two of the last three road games. Optimism aside, Larkin is not in a favorable situation Sunday against a Minnesota Wild team that has allowed the fewest goals against at home and is pushing to secure a playoff spot.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoFlorida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo will start against the Philadelphia Flyers at home as he tries to earn his fifth straight win. The Panthers have won their last five games and six of the eight games since Luongo returned from injury. He has been solid in that time, posting a .927 save percentage, which falls in line with his .928 save percentage for the season. It looks like there will be no lingering issues from his injury, so continue to use him as you did earlier in the season. The Flyers are coming off of a tough overtime loss against the Lightning last night while the Panthers had the night off, which should give the Panthers a bit of an edge. Luongo is worth a start Sunday and needs to be owned in most formats.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Matthew DeFranks
1 year agoEdmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot suffered his third consecutive loss on Saturday, giving up three goals on 34 shots (.912 save percentage) against the Rangers. He was on a good run of three wins in four starts before that, but the Oilers are having a down year and it's tough for a goalie to do anything about it. Talbot has won just four starts since February and his record has dropped to 22-26-2. He has some good matchups next week, with the Oilers hosting the Coyotes and Islanders in consecutive games, but it would take a brave fantasy owner to rely on a goalie who's allowing over three goals per game (3.12) for the season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoEdmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (ribs) returned from injury on Saturday, scoring his 17th goal of the season against the New York Rangers. He logged 13:20 in his first game since Jan. 13, recording four shots on goal and a plus-1 rating, while also blocking three shots. The 24-year-old center is having a decent season with 32 points in 47 games, and it's always nice to see players returning from injury in good form. However, with only 13 points in 28 career games, Nugent-Hopkins doesn't seem to have a very good matchup next when the Oilers host Arizona on Monday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoEdmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers to extend his goal-scoring streak to three games and grow his tally across the last four games to eight points. He became the first Oilers player since Ryan Smyth in 2005/06 and 2006/07 to record back-to-back 30-goal seasons. McDavid now has 79 points for the season, trailing only Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov for the league lead, and he'll get three home games next week to further improve his chances of picking up a second consecutive Art Ross Trophy.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoArizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored his first goal since Jan. 18 in Saturday's 2-1 win over Ottawa to take his tally for the season to nine. With two 20-plus goal seasons to his name, Ekman-Larsson has disappointed in 2017/18 and his overall points tally (32) isn't anything special either. He's improved a bit lately with the team doing better, but he still owns a league-worst minus-35 rating. However, it has to be noted that when OEL ended his last goal drought, he had two goals in three games and he recorded a superb three-game goal streak following the first dry spell of the season. Adding to that, Ekman-Larsson has 10 career goals, his best mark against any opposition, against Edmonton, who the Coyotes face next on Monday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Hockey Reference
1 year agoArizona Coyotes goalie Antti Raanta picked up his 15th win of the season on Saturday, as a second-period goal from Jordan Martinook helped push the team past Ottawa 2-1. Raanta had 23 saves to continue his recent hot form. The 28-year-old has won six of his last seven starts with two shutouts. The Coyotes have finally played like a decent hockey team since the start of last month, but it has to be noted that they've had a lot of home games on the schedule. They'll be on the road next week and the dark times could easily return for Raanta and the team.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoOttawa Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki (9 percent owned in Yahoo leagues) continues to prove his worth for those in hits leagues and put up five hits in the loss against the Arizona Coyotes. With six hits against Vegas just the other night, that puts him at 11 hits in his last two games, and he is currently second place in the NHL in hits per game with 3.85. While Borowiecki cannot be relied upon to produce offense consistently, his hits can only be compared to Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Robert Hagg (3.53 hits per game), and he remains a one-dimensional threat for all hitting leagues. Pick Borowiecki up right now if you are in need of a hitting defenseman in head-to-head leagues.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBoston Bruins left wing Jake DeBrusk (4 percent owned on Yahoo) scored a goal and logged a season-high 16:36 of ice time in the 2-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens. Ever since the acquisition of Rick Nash, DeBrusk has played on the second line with Nash and David Krejci and the second power-play unit. This promotion has resulted in a current stretch of four points in three games for DeBrusk. The dropoff in production for Danton Heinen has allowed for DeBrusk to take advantage of this opportunity, and he should be given fantasy consideration in all 12-team leagues.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoToronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen lasted just 31 minutes in the 2018 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game against the Washington Capitals. Toronto backup goalie Curtis McElhinney then replaced Andersen, keeping the Caps off of the board for the remainder of the game. Andersen allowed five goals on 25 shots in the loss, looking nothing like the strong starter he has been this season for the Leafs. Don’t sound the alarm just yet, as the Danish goaltender has had a solid year and hopefully just had a bad night. The 28-year-old now sports a 32-16-5 record this season with five shutouts, a .922 save percentage and 2.67 goals-against average. Andersen and the Leafs will look to bounce back Monday against Buffalo, who have scored two goals or less in six of their last eight games.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoBoston Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin made 27 saves and allowed just one goal in the Bruins Saturday overtime win over Montreal. Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher scored the only goal for the Habs halfway through the first period with a snap shot that Khudobin may have been screened on. Khudobin, who got the start while Bruins top goalie Tuukka Rask nurses a minor injury, made some impressive saves during the match and kept Boston in the game. The 31-year-old now owns a .921 save percentage and a 2.34 goals-against average. The Bruins will play 19 games in the final 36 days of the regular season and will most likely turn to Khudobin for more than just back-to-back games as they prepare for a playoff run. Khudobin should be at the top of your wish list if you’re seeking goaltending help from a spot starter.--Alex Mckenzie - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoLos Angeles Kings forward Alex Iafallo scored another goal on Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. The 24-year-old rookie scored an unassisted goal near the end of the second period to make it 3-1. He now has three goals in the last two games and four points across the last three games while playing on the top line with Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown. Iafallo had just one point in nine games before his recent outburst, so don't count on him to keep racking up goals and assists, especially as he's not used on the power play, but he's doing well right now in limited minutes.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoLos Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick let his team down on Saturday, as he finished with only 20 saves and an .833 save percentage in a 5-3 loss to Chicago. The Kings took a two-goal lead to the final period in the matchup of former Western Conference powerhouses, but they couldn't stretch their winning streak to four, with the Hawks scoring four goals on 10 shots on goal. Quick finished last month with a .926 save percentage and started March by saving 30 of 32 shots (.938) against Columbus, so overall, he's been in solid form for a while and he'll no doubt be eager to bounce back next Thursday against the Capitals, who haven't won in L.A. since 2005.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoLos Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter had his three-game goal-scoring streak end in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. Carter was limited to just two shots on goal, which is his worst mark since returning from a long injury layoff. The Kings now go on a four-day break before hosting Washington on Thursday. The Capitals have struggled on the road lately and even gave up seven goals in a couple of outings last month, so Carter looks to have a good matchup to find the net again. He has 12 goals and 26 points in 30 career games against the Caps.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoNew York Islanders right winger Josh Bailey assisted on defenseman Brandon Davidson's 19th goal in the first period. Ultimately, New York fell 3-2 to Pittsburgh in overtime. It was assist No. 48 for Bailey, who remains in striking distance for the league lead in that category. He remains nine behind Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek. If you need assists, Bailey is a very good man to have.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource:
