5 days agoTampa Bay Lightning forwards Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov tallied two points each, leading the Lightning to a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. It has been a rough start to the season for the Lightning from a team perspective, but Kucherov and Stamkos continue to rack up the points. Their line with the addition of Brayden Point looks promising since Point's return from injury, as the Lightning ha loaded up their top line in hopes of finally getting over the hump and taking a run at the Stanley Cup. Stamkos, Braydon Coburn, and Tyler Johnson were the goal scorers, while Jeff Petry countered for the Canadiens. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource:
5 days agoMinnesota Wild forward Gerald Mayhew scored his first career goal in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Mayhew gives a bit of hope to the Wild fan base, as they bring in some young offensive talent to decrease the average age on a veteran-heavy lineup. Mayhew had been the minor league teams best player last season, scoring 60 points in 71 games, and had started out this year with six points in four games. While the Wild may not score many goals, Mayhew could be someone to keep an eye on in your fantasy leagues if he can secure a bigger role with the Wild. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource:
5 days agoToronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly led the team with four assists in a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild. The Leafs powerplay was firing, going 2/3, snapping the puck around with relative ease, which should be happening every game with the amount of talent on their PP1. Mitch Marner added a goal and two assists while Andreas Johnsson chipped in a goal and an assist on the powerplay. Johnsson could prove to be a sneaky and cheap play most nights due to his placement on PP1 and playing alongside Auston Matthews and William Nylander at even-strength. Matthews and John Tavares added the other goals for the Leafs. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoNew York Islanders forward Brock Nelson potted a goal and added a helper as his team defeated the St. Louis Blues by a 3-2 score on Monday. Aside from recording his second multi-point performance of the young season, Nelson also contributed two shots and two hits in 19:20 of ice time in the contest. After establishing a new career high with 53 (25 goals, 28 assists) points last season, the 28-year-old is off to a nice start in 2019-2020 with five points, 10 penalty minutes and 20 shots through his first six games. Nelson has emerged as a legitimate option in deep fantasy leagues and should even be monitored as a potential streamer in shallow formats as well. He'll aim to keep producing when he takes the ice next on Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoNew York Islanders center Mathew Barzal registered a goal and a primary assist in his team's 3-2 overtime defeat of the visiting St. Louis Blues on Monday afternoon. The 22-year-old saved his production for late in the contest in this one - burying the game-tying goal with just 27 seconds remaining and then setting up defenseman Devon Toews with the game-winning goal just 1:13 into the overtime frame. With four points (one goal, three assists) through his first six games, Barzal is out to prove that his sophomore, 62-point season was simply a mirage. The 2017-2018 Calder Trophy winner is one of the most electrifying centers in the game today and will be counted on to provide elite production throughout his third NHL season. He'll look to extend his current point streak to three games when he takes on the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoMinnesota Wild goaltender Alex Stalock picked up his first victory of the season in Monday's 2-0 win over the Ottawa Senators. The 32-year-old stopped all 26 shots he faced in the contest, earning his sixth career NHL shutout. Stalock's sturdy performance comes at an opportune time, as his team had failed to post a win in any of its first four games of the campaign. Backing up a workhorse in fellow Wild netminder Devan Dubnyk, Stalock likely only holds value as a potential streamer in just the deepest of fantasy leagues. However, with Dubnyk off to a rough start (4.56 goals-against average, .862 save percentage), Stalock could be in line for more appearances moving forward. The Minnesota native will carry a sparkling 0.71 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage into his next start.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoBuffalo Sabres left wing Victor Olofsson scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Monday's 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars. The rookie now has five goals on the season, and every tally has come with the man advantage. Olofsson is deserving of ownership in all formats as he has exposure to the Sabres' top line and top power-play unit. Jeff Skinner also scored a goal in the contest while Jack Eichel tallied two assists. The Sabres are playing at a fantastic level heading into Wednesday's game with the Anaheim Ducks.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoBuffalo Sabres goaltender Carter Hutton turned away all 25 shots that came his way during Monday's 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars. The 33-year-old has started the 2019-20 campaign off in stellar fashion, compiling a 4-0-0 record to go along with a 1.74 goals-against average and .931 save percentage. Through the first portion of the season, the Sabres have looked like one of the league's top teams. Hutton's value continues to rise, and he is deserving of ownership in all formats. His next start will likely come on Wednesday against the Anaheim Ducks.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoNew Jersey Devils left wing Taylor Hall scored a goal and added an assist during Monday's 6-4 loss to the Florida Panthers. Hall now has one goal, four assists, and 24 shots on net during his first six games. Despite the modest production so far, Hall will unquestionably return to his elite form. Center Pavel Zacha also scored a goal and chipped in two assists in the contest, but he is irrelevant in fantasy circles. The Devils' next game will come on Thursday against the New York Rangers.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoFlorida Panthers right wing Evgenii Dadonov scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Monday's 6-4 win over the New Jersey Devils. The 30-year-old now has seven points through six games this season. It was a productive day for the Panthers' offense as Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Brett Connolly, Aaron Ekblad, and MacKenzie Weegar all had multi-point games. The Panthers' top-six forwards are all worthy fantasy assets in formats with more than 10 teams. The team will be back in action on Friday night against the Colorado Avalanche.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoBoston Bruins right wing David Pastrnak scored four goals on five shots during a 4-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday afternoon. It was a stellar performance from the 23-year-old Czech, who is now up to six goals on the season. Brad Marchand also tallied two assists in the contest. Each member of the Bruins' top line is an excellent fantasy asset that is worthy of ownership in all formats. The team will be back in action on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
6 days agoEdmonton Oilers winger James Neal bagged his eighth goal of the season on Monday, netting a power-play marker in a 3-1 loss at Chicago. He's the first player to score six power-play goals in the team's first six games since Dino Ciccarelli in 1986-87. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl picked up the assists on the play. Neal leads the league in goals with eight, which is already one more than he managed for the Flames during the whole of last season. However, Neal's shooting percentage is at a ridiculous 38.1 percent, so it's only a matter of time before the goals dry out, for at least a while.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
6 days agoChicago Blackhawks left wing Brandon Saad made it two goals in two games on Monday, finishing the scoring with an empty-netter in a 3-1 win over Edmonton. He fired a total of four shots on goal and spent 16:04 on the ice, playing in every situation. Patrick Kane and Alexander Nylander also scored for the Hawks. Saad had a decent year with 23 goals and 47 points in 2018-19, but he was a 50-point guy during his first spell at Chicago. He seems to be finally figuring things out again, as he sits on a three-game point streak and he's currently only behind Kane on the team's scoring list.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
6 days agoChicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford was huge for the team in Monday's tilt against the Edmonton Oilers, saving 27 of 28 shots and helping the team pick up their first win of the season with a 3-1 scoreline. The Crow was only beaten by a late power-play goal by James Neal. The Oilers had scored at least three goals in all five of their previous outings this season. Crawford's fantasy stock has fallen in recent years, with him struggling with injuries and the team being a lot weaker compared to the recent glory days, but he's still a two-time Stanley Cup champion and a quality goalie.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
6 days agoColorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri recorded his first multi-point game with his new team on Monday as he put a goal and two assists on the board against Washington. Colorado buried Holtby in an avalanche of goals early in the first period, with Kadri scoring the final goal on Braden Holtby before he was pulled from the game. Kadri also had an assist on the game's first goal and picked up a power-play assist later in the first period. After failing to register a point in his first three games, Kadri now has power-play points in consecutive games. Playing on Colorado's potent top power-play unit is a big boost for Kadri's value, especially now that things are starting to click offensively.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource:
