17 mins agoSt. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington stopped all 17 shots that came his way during Tuesday's 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils. The win snapped a four-start losing streak for the 26-year-old. Binnington has had a tougher time in the second half of the season, posting a 6-5-3 record and .886 save percentage since January 1. Despite the recent slump, Binnington is still a top-10 goaltending option in fantasy formats. He has another favorable matchup in his next projected start against the low-scoring Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
1 hour agoThe Ottawa Senators defeated the Buffalo Sabres by a score of 7-4 on Tuesday night. With trade winds blowing, Jean-Gabriel Pageau had two goals and two assists. He now has a career-best 24 goals in 58 games. He’s also just three points away from tying his career-high in that category at 43. Brady Tkachuk provided two helpers and doled out six hits. Artem Anisimov scored two goals and has found the back of the net three times in the last two games. He has 14 on the season. Anthony Duclair finally broke a 22-game scoreless streak when he found the back of the net on a short-handed attempt in the third period. For Buffalo, Victor Olofsson has been on fire since returning from injury. He scored his third goal in three games and also has five points during that stretch. The rookie has 40 points in 45 games. Defenseman Brandon Montour has also been mentioned in trade rumors and he scored two goals with an assist. --Marc Hulet - RotoBallerSource:
1 hour agoWith their moms watching from the stands, the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-1 on Tuesday night. When Sebastian Aho found the back of the net it gave him his 10th goal in the past nine games. His 34 goals in 59 games is a career-high. Andrei Svechnikov also bent the twine for his fifth goal and 12th point in the last 10 games. His 24 goals are a career-high. Justin Williams broke a seven-game pointless stretch with two assists. He now has five points in 11 games since his late start to the season. Jordan Staal scored his first goal after an 11-game scoreless stretch. Petr Mrazek had his second strong start in as many games and turned aside 28 of 29 shots. For Nashville, Ryan Johansen scored the lone goal, which was just his 12th of the season. --Marc Hulet - RotoBallerSource:
1 hour agoThe Pittsburgh Penguins scored five straight goals and rolled over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night by a score of 5-2. Sidney Crosby led the way with a goal and three assists. He has 11 points over his past five games. Bryan Rust broke a six-game pointless streak with a goal and two assists. He’s still enjoying a career year with 23 goals and 48 points in 44 games. Recently-acquired Jason Zucker also had a goal and has now found the back of the net three times in his four games with Pittsburgh. Tristan Jarry won his fourth game in a row by turning aside 34 of 36 shots on net. He’s allowed three goals or fewer in 16 straight games. On the losing side, Auston Matthews scored his 43rd goal in his 61st game and is one point away from tying his career-high in that category. Frederik Andersen had another rough appearance in net and allowed five goals for the second straight game. --Marc Hulet - RotoBallerSource:
2 hours agoColumbus Blue Jackets right wing Oliver Bjorkstrand stayed hot in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to Philadelphia, extending his point streak to five games with his 20th goal of the season. The Jackets might have lost for the sixth straight time, but Bjorkstrand remains in outstanding form. The 24-year old Dane has had only three pointless efforts in his last 16 appearances. He's missed over 10 games, but still leads the team in goals and has been the only consistent forward during the team's cold spell. Bjorkstrand is up to 34 points for the year in 48 games ahead of a rematch with the Flyers on Thursday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 hours agoPhiladelphia Flyers goaltender Carter Hart picked up another home win on Tuesday, stopping 28 pucks in a 5-1 victory over Columbus. Hart's home record for the year now stands at an amazing 15-2-2. He's allowing only 1.62 goals per game in front of the home crowd with a .943 save percentage. Only the unstoppable Lightning have beaten Hart in his last 11 home appearances, and his only loss this month in four games also came against Tampa. Hart's record for the season is at 18-12-3 with a 2.54 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage. The Flyers will now visit the Jackets on Thursday before starting a three-game homestand, which should suit Hart very well.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 hours agoPhiladelphia Flyers center Travis Konecny played a key role in Tuesday's matchup against Columbus, finishing a 5-1 win with one goal and two assists. Kevin Hayes, Sean Couturier, Philippe Myers, and Jakub Voracek also scored for the Flyers, who improved their home record to 20-5-4. Konecny has 28 points in 29 home outings and 51 points for the year in 57 games. Couturier has the team-lead in points with 53, but Konecny is Philly's most prolific goal-scorer with 20 goals. The Flyers get a rematch with the Jackets on Thursday. Konecny has picked up five points in three games against Columbus this season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
23 hours agoVancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser will be out of action for at least the next three weeks with a rib cartilage injury. The Minnesota native, who has already missed three games due to the issue, suffered the injury in his team's 6-2 loss to the Calgary Flames back on February 8th. Boeser has registered 45 points (16 goals, 29 assists), a plus-five rating, 14 power-play points and 166 shots in 56 games played this season. Jake Virtanen (12% owned in Yahoo! leagues) has been a beneficiary of increased ice time in Boeser's absence and could be an attractive fantasy asset to target for the short-term.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Vancouver Canucks
23 hours agoColorado Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer will be out for an indefinite amount of time after suffering a lower-body injury in his team's 3-1 Stadium Series loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. The 28-year-old sustained the injury in the third period following a collision in his crease with Avs defenseman Ian Cole. Avs head coach Jared Bednar stated that the team should know more about Grubauer's status later this week, as the German netminder is still being evaluated and undergoing further testing. Grubauer has posted 18 wins, a 2.63 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage in 36 starts in 2019-2020. Expect goaltender Pavel Francouz (31% owned in Yahoo! leagues) to take over starting duties while Grubauer remains sidelined.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
24 hours agoColorado Avalanche forward Mikko Rantanen will be sidelined for weeks after sustaining an upper-body injury in his team's 4-3 overtime loss to the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday. The 23-year-old was forced to depart the game during the second period after being tripped by Bolts defenseman Erik Cernak and violently colliding with the end boards. Despite having to miss 16 games due to an ankle injury suffered back in October, Rantanen has posted 41 points (19 goals, 22 assists), 14 power-play points and 107 shots through 42 contests. Avalanche forward Valeri Nichushkin (5% owned in Yahoo! leagues) could be elevated to a top-line role in Rantanen's absence.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoForward Tyler Toffoli was traded to the Vancouver Canucks from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Tim Schaller, prospect Tyler Madden, a 2020 second-round draft pick and a 2022 conditional pick on Monday. The 27-year-old, who just recorded a hat trick in the Kings' 3-1 Stadium Series victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, has posted 34 points (18 goals, 16 assists), seven power-play points and 165 shots in 58 games this season. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, Toffoli will look to immediately begin producing in the Canucks' top-six forward group. He'll make his Canucks debut versus the Wild on Wednesday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoFlorida Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 of 32 shots on goal in Monday's 5-3 victory against the Sharks, earning his 21st win of the season and first since early February. The 31-year-old allowed one goal in the opening period and a pair in the third, but the first-year Panthers netminder was sharp in key moments to help the team stay in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Evgenii Dadonov, Mike Hoffman, Colton Sceviour, Anton Stralman and Vincent Trocheck each scored a goal in the contest, while defenseman Aaron Ekblad recorded a pair of assists. Bobrovsky improves to 21-17-5 on the season, along with a 3.31 goals-against average and .897 save percentage through 45 appearances, making the veteran worth owning across standard fantasy formats moving forward.--Denis Vondrus - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoAnaheim Ducks forward Adam Henrique made it three goals in two games on Monday, starting off the scoring in an eventual 6-4 loss to Calgary. Jakob Silfverberg had a goal and an assist, while Nicolas Deslauriers and Devin Shore also scored. Henrique's season includes a 14-game goal drought, but in general, he's been in fine form in front of the net, notching a team-high 21 goals in total. It's his best return since posting a career-high 30 goals in 2015-16. The veteran forward is in a great spot to keep up his goal-scoring form in the next matchup against the Panthers, who have the third-worst defensive record in the league.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 day agoCalgary Flames left wing Andrew Mangiapane scored his first career hat trick and added one assist in Monday's 6-4 win over Anaheim. Matthew Tkachuk supported him with one goal and one assist, while Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan also scored. Mangiapane is the first Flames player this season to score a hat trick. Calgary really needed it as well after falling behind 3-1. Mangiapane is a depth forward, who doesn't do much offensively on most nights, but he's earned some extra playing time lately, which has helped him get on a good run of seven points in five games. He has 25 points for the whole season with 13 goals.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 day agoNew York Islanders left wing Anthony Beauvillier netted the team's only goal in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Coyotes, picking up his 18th marker of the season 6:42 into the final frame. Andy Greene and Ryan Pulock delivered the assists. Beauvillier, who has 37 points for the season, continues to blow hot and cold. He started off 2020 with a six-game point drought, but then notched 13 points during a 10-game hot spell. He then went three games again without a single point before Monday night. Despite the inconsistent form, Beauvillier has already posted a new career-high in points, and he's actually done pretty well when you consider that the Isles aren't a very prolific team.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
