7 months agoAnaheim Ducks forward Adam Henrique recorded his 11th multi-point performance of the season on Wednesday when the teams completed a game that was postponed on Feb. 11, after St. Louis defenseman Jay Bouwmeester had a cardiac episode. Henrique already had a goal to his name before play resumed Wednesday night and he went on to notch an assist on Jani Hakanpaa's first career goal. Henrique is one of the few Anaheim players, if not the only one, to take some pride from this season, as he's closing in on his second 30-goal season and he leads the team with 43 points.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoSt. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo recorded two goals in a 4-2 win over Anaheim on Wednesday when the teams finally got to finish a game that was abandoned on Feb. 11, after Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester suffered a cardiac episode. Pietrangelo had a power-play goal and an empty netter. Ryan O'Reilly produced a multi-point performance with two assists. Pietrangelo has now recorded a career-high 16 goals this season and he looks set to post a new personal best in points as well. The Blues captain needs three more to surpass the 54-point tally he had in 2017-18.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoThe Winnipeg Jets were outshot 38-25 but managed to hold on for a 4-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night. Kyle Connor led the offense by hitting the back of the net twice. He now has eight goals in the past seven games to give him a total of 38 for the season. His 73 points in 71 games is also a career-high. Blake Wheeler chipped in a goal and an assist. He has 11 points over the last 10 games as he plays catch-up after a slow start to the year. After two straight 91-point seasons, he has 65 points in 71 games. Patrick Laine also bent the twine and has two goals and four points over the past three games. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 36 of 38 shots for the second straight game and hasn’t allowed more than two goals in four straight appearances. Connor McDavid scored his 34th goal of the season and sits at 97 points through 64 games. --Marc Hulet - RotoBallerSource:
7 months agoSan Jose Sharks winger Evander Kane and Timo Meier took care of all the offense in the team's 6-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday. Kane opened the scoring on a power play with Meier and Joe Thornton setting him up, and Meier then scored himself in the third with Kane providing the only assist. Kane now has five goals across the last six games, while Meier has recorded a four-game point streak. Both wingers have been in fine form this season, but the team has been shockingly bad and that's left a mark on everybody's stats. Things likely won't be much prettier in the next matchups either, as the Sharks face three tough road games against St. Louis, Dallas, and Colorado.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoChicago Blackhawks right wing Alex DeBrincat played a big part in Wednesday's 6-2 win over San Jose, handing out three dimes. He had two power-play assists in what's his third three-point performance of the season. Patrick Kane scored twice and had 11 shots in total, while Alex Nylander, Jonathan Toews, and Duncan Keith also put together a multi-point game. Keith now has 12 points in his past 11 games, which is the most among all defensemen since Feb. 17. There should be plenty of Blackhawks players with multiple points in the next matchup as well, with the team hosting an Ottawa side that's given up 3.71 goals per game on the road this season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoDallas Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen produced a multi-point performance with a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers. Roope Hintz was on target on a power play, scoring only for the second time in his past 14 outings, and Andrew Cogliano finished off the scoring in the game. Heiskanen has produced a career-high 35 points this season, but he's been quiet for a while, adding only six points to his tally in the past 13 games. With that said, the youngster can build up some momentum now with a pair of favorable matchups against Florida and San Jose, who are among the five worst defensive teams in the league.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoNew York Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin had another wonderful performance on Tuesday against Dallas, picking up his 10th win with a 31-save performance in a 4-2 victory. Kaapo Kakko scored twice and Mika Zibanejad notched his 40th goal of the season, which made him the first player in Rangers history to post three 10-goal months in one season. Meanwhile, Shesterkin is now the sixth goalie in NHL history to win 10 of his first 12 career appearances. He's been a superb addition to the roster with a 2.52 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage. The Rangers play again on Wednesday against Colorado, with Alexandar Georgiev the projected starter. He has a 17-14-1 record for the season with a 3.05 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoToronto Maple Leafs forwards Mitch Marner and John Tavares both picked up two power-play assists during Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Marner is up to 67 points on the season, while Tavares just cracked the 60-point plateau. Both players are top-tier fantasy assets playing in a productive offense. They are deserving of ownership in all formats heading into Thursday's matchup with the Nashville Predators.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
7 months agoDetroit Red Wings left wing Tyler Bertuzzi can celebrate posting a new career-high in points after making it 48 points across 71 games in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Carolina. The 25-year-old winger took his goal-scoring streak to three games with his 21st marker of the season, while also racking up 12 penalty minutes in the game. Christoffer Ehn found his way to the scoresheet as well. Bertuzzi has had a good season on a bad team, and he could get close to 60 points if he keeps up his current form. Extending the current scoring streak will be tough, though, as the Wings head to Washington next.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoToronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews potted a power-play goal in the third period of Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 22-year-old fired seven shots on net in 22:39 of ice time. Matthews has become one of the top offensive weapons in the NHL, tallying 47 goals, 33 assists, and 25 power-play points through 70 games. He is a must-start fantasy asset every time he takes the ice for the remainder of the season. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
7 months agoCarolina Hurricanes right wing Justin Williams recorded the game-winning goal on a power play in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over Detroit, stretching his goal-scoring streak to five games. Sebastian Aho had a big night with one power-play goal, one short-handed marker, and one power-play assist. Jake Gardiner put together a three-point performance with three assists. It took Williams a while to get going since signing up for another season in January, but he looks like a man on a mission now. The veteran winger will be in a good spot to extend his streak even further on Thursday when the Hurricanes face another struggling team in the Devils. Williams is the third player in league history age 38 or older with a goal streak of five-plus games.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoNew Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban extended his point streak to three games in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh, and he now has four points in five outings this month. The former Norris Trophy winner recorded a power-play assist on Nikita Gusev's 13th goal of the season. Miles Wood also scored for the Devils. Subban has only 18 points for the season, so it's taken him a long time to get going offensively. His play in even-strength situations still needs improvement, though, as he was a minus-three on Tuesday and his minus-21 rating for the season is one of the worst in the league among defensemen.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoPittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin led the team to a 5-2 victory over New Jersey on Tuesday, collecting two goals and one assist. Evan Rodrigues and Justin Schultz scored before Malkin made the game safe in the final frame. Kris Letang recorded one goal and one assist. Malkin is off to a red-hot start to the month, as he's put together a five-game point streak during which he's notched a total of 11 points. He had points in just three of his previous eight games, so something clearly clicked for the Russian. He now has 25 goals and 74 points for the season ahead of a big rivalry game against Columbus. Malkin has managed 32 points in 26 career games against the Blue Jackets, including two in two outings this season.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoNashville Predators left wing Filip Forsberg tore apart Montreal on Tuesday, posting his first three-point game of the season in a 4-2 win. The Swedish winger had two goals and one assist. Ryan Johansen and Calle Jarnkrok joined Forsberg on the scoresheet, Roman Josi provided two assists. Forsberg now has 21 goals this season, which makes him the first player in franchise history to record six 20-goal seasons. He's added 27 assists in 63 games. It's not been a great season by Forsberg, but he's improved his form in recent weeks with eight points in nine games. He'll try and keep it up on Thursday vs. Toronto, against whom he tallied one assist in a 5-2 loss on Jan. 27.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
7 months agoEdmonton Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins extended his point streak to six games in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas, scoring his 22nd goal of the season after Alex Chiasson had notched the team's opener. Both Nugent-Hopkins and Chiasson now have three goals in the past four games. RNH has struggled in front of the goal for most of the season, but he now has nine goals since the start of last month -- seven of them have come in his past 10 appearances. The Oilers need all the goals they can get with Connor McDavid (illness) missing again. They resume action on Wednesday against Winnipeg. Nugent-Hopkins had one of his best games of the season against the Jets in the previous meeting between the two on Feb. 29, recording three points in a 3-2 win.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
