2 years agoArizona Coyotes goaltender Antti Raanta will go for his sixth straight win on Tuesday against the Calgary Flames in a road game. The Finnish netminder was in superb form last month, winning seven of eight starts, allowing just 1.50 goals per game with a .952 save percentage. He ended March with his third shutout of the season, recording 34 saves in a 6-0 win over St. Louis. Raanta's current winning streak actually started against the Flames on March 19 with a 42-save effort in a 5-2 win. Calgary has struggled mightily in recent weeks, while the Coyotes have won three of their last four, so Raanta is in a good spot to continue his hot streak.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Dave Vest
2 years agoSan Jose Sharks goaltender Martin Jones has a new opportunity to grab his 30th win of the season on Tuesday, as he has been named the starter for a home game against Dallas. The Sharks have just secured their playoff spot, but they still want to lock up second place in the Pacific division, so Jones has to wait a little longer for a rest day. Jones has lost two starts in a row but hasn't finished three straight games without a win since January, so it seems likely that he will return to winning ways Tuesday, especially as the Stars have been awful for a while, losing 10 of the last 11 games on the road.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Paul Gackle
2 years agoCalgary Flames goaltender Jon Gillies will get a new chance to impress on Tuesday, as he'll be starting the game against Arizona. The young netminder has had it tough this season, losing four starts in a row and allowing nine goals in the last two outings. Gillies finished last Thursday's 5-1 loss to Columbus with only 23 saves and a .821 save percentage. He's picked up just two wins so far, going 2-3-1 overall in six starts, allowing 3.10 goals per game with a .893 save percentage. The Flames have Johnny Gaudreau back, but they have lost seven of the last eight games, and the Coyotes have played well lately, so owners should look for other options between the pipes Tuesday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: Pat Steinberg
2 years agoNew Jersey Devils goaltender Keith Kinkaid will take on the visiting New York Rangers on Tuesday night. It will be his seventh straight start after supplanting Cory Schneider as the No. 1 in Jersey. With a 24-10-3 record, Kinkaid is having a career year and has a good chance to improve those numbers against a rebuilding Rangers team. His peripheral numbers (2.84 goals-against average, .911 save percentage) aren't dazzling, but with a surging Devils team looking to lock up a playoff berth, Kinkaid looks likely to get the win Tuesday.--Barry MilesSource: Chris Ryan
2 years agoWashington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 34 shots en route to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night. The win gives him four in his last five outings, improving his record to 33-16-4 on the year. It was one of Holtby's better games, but his 2.99 goals-against average this season leaves something to be desired. With only two games remaining in the regular season, the Caps have locked up their division title for the third year in a row. It remains to be seen who will start the final two games, or if they'll be split between Holtby and Philipp Grubauer.--Barry MilesSource: TSN
2 years agoWinnipeg Jets forward Kyle Connor registered an assist and six shots on goal in the 6-5 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday. Suffice it to say that Connor has been having a stellar year; with the assist against the Sens, he has moved into fifth place for rookie scoring with 55 points, only three behind Vancouver's Brock Boeser. Connor has been shooting at 15.7 percent and while that's likely to see some regression, the young American is getting more pucks to the net lately, which has helped him score six goals and 10 points in the last nine games. He's one goal shy of 30 but will have plenty of chances to grab it, as the Jets have an easy schedule to close out the season. Connor is only owned in 61 percent of ESPN leagues and could be a great streaming option down the stretch.--aayushdasSource: Hockey Reference
2 years agoNashville Predators forward Kyle Turris did not register a point in the Monday night game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but he does have three goals and two assists in his last five games. Turris frustrated fantasy owners through much of the season, going on a cold stretch with just five points in 23 games between Dec. 19 and Feb. 13 that justified dropping him from your roster. However, he has been showing some consistency of late, putting forth 16 points in his last 20 games. The second line of Turris, Craig Smith and Kevin Fiala leads the team in goal differential (plus-18) and Corsi For (58.3 percent). He is owned in 68 percent of ESPN leagues, so it might be too late to really get the most out of Turris, but keep him in mind for your playoff drafts.--aayushdasSource: Hockey Reference
2 years agoThe San Jose Sharks have earned their spot in the postseason on their night off when the LA Kings beat the Colorado Avalanche. This was expected, as the Sharks jumped out to a secure points lead with their recent eight-game winning streak. It is unsure who they will be playing in the first round, but what everybody wants to know is will Joe Thornton be ready to return for the playoffs? He skated through a short practice Monday but is not expected to play in any of the last three remaining regular season games for San Jose. They are sitting in a good spot coming into the playoffs with the addition of Evander Kane, and they've won 11 games since acquiring him. It's shaping up to be an exciting postseason with a lot of possibility for San Jose.--Anthony VattimoSource: The Mercury News
2 years agoWinnipeg Jets forward Blake Wheeler scored two goals in a nail-biter against the Ottawa Senators on Monday. Wheeler is having the best season of his career, eclipsing his previous record by 11 points, and he is also leading the league in assists (67) and has 13 points in his last 10 games, with four of them on the power play. Wheeler will continue to log big minutes on a strong first line on even strength and power play. The Jets have three games remaining and all of them are against weak or struggling teams and when the Jets have both Wheeler and Mark Scheifele on the ice, they're one of the toughest offenses in the league to stop. Keep him rolling in all formats.--aayushdasSource: Hockey Reference
2 years agoLos Angeles Kings right wing Dustin Brown scored a short-handed game-winning goal in Monday's 3-1 result against Colorado, which helped the team leapfrog the Ducks again into third place in the Pacific division. Anze Kopitar and Alec Martinez picked up the assists on the first-period tally. Kopitar now has 56 assists for the season, which is the most by a Kings player since Jozef Stumpel in 1997-98 (58). Brown has enjoyed his time playing alongside the Kings captain this season as well, as he's now on 24 goals, which matches his third highest output in his 14-year career. Sitting on 57 points, he needs only three more in the final two games to match his career high (60) set in 2007-08.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoEdmonton Oilers defenseman Andrej Sekera (leg) can't seem to catch a break, as he suffered another injury in Monday's 3-0 loss to Minnesota. He logged just 12:47 before exiting the game with what appeared to be a leg injury. The veteran defenseman got hurt at a very bad time, as he had enjoyed a good little run lately, picking up four points -- all assists - in five games before Monday's tilt. His season is likely over now after managing to play in only 38 games. Sekera suffered a torn ACL in last year's playoffs, which led to him missing the start of 2017-18 and he's also missed multiple weeks with a foot problem this season. Edmonton also lost Yohan Auvitu to injury against the Wild, so rookie Ethan Bear looks set to play a big part in the final regular season games.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: TSN
2 years agoDallas Stars defenseman Stephen Johns (concussion) will not travel with his team as the Stars close out the season with a three-game road trip in Southern California. Johns suffered a concussion in Saturday's win against Minnesota. With the Stars officially eliminated from playoff contention, the team is likely taking the cautious approach with their defenseman on this one. The Pennsylvania native isn't known for his offensive totals (eight goals and seven assists) but has broken onto the fantasy scene as a solid peripheral category filler with 41 penalty minutes, 155 blocked shots and 201 hits in 75 games this season.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Sean Shapiro
2 years agoDallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop (knee) will remain in Dallas for the final road trip of his team's season. Bishop suffered the second of two knee injuries back on March 18 and despite practicing in full gear over the past week, he will be unable to play in any of the final three games of the season. As a result of the two injuries, the 6-foot-7 netminder started just three games over the past month. Bishop's season will come to a close with 26 wins, a 2.49 goals-against average, a .916 save percentage and five shutouts in his first year in Dallas.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Sean Shapiro
2 years agoWashington Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer stopped 36 shots en route to a 3-1 win over the rival Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. The German netminder has now won four in a row for the Caps as his record improves to 15-9-3, a career best. He is only owned in 38 percent of Yahoo leagues and should almost certainly be picked up if he's available in your free-agent pool. Grubauer nearly completed his fourth shutout of the year until the Pens scored with 3:45 remaining. He still has seven wins and two shutouts in his last eight contests.--Barry MilesSource: TSN
2 years agoCarolina Hurricanes goaltender Scott Darling will get the nod as the Canes visit the Florida Panthers. Darling played well in his last start, stopping 20 shots in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Friday. However, the Panthers are still just barely in the hunt for a playoff spot, despite losing three in a row. Darling's overall record of 13-19-7 isn't very encouraging and neither are his 3.15 goals-against average or his .887 save percentage. There are better options to choose from if you're in your league's fantasy playoffs.--Barry MilesSource: Carolina Hurricanes
