  • Ivan Barbashev STL LW
    Blues' Ivan Barbashev: Three goals in last two games
    4h ago

    Barbashev scored twice Saturday in a 6-3 win over St. Louis.

    He scored on a rebound with a one-handed tip-in early in the second that put the Blues up 2-1. And then he pushed the score to 6-2 late in the third. Barbashev has three goals in his last two games and a solid 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 21 games. If he sustains this pace, Barbashev will flirt with a possible 50-point season. And that's from the middle six. He's a sneaky fantasy play.

    Blue Jackets' Adam Boqvist: Three-game, five-point streak
    4h ago

    Boqvist scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.

    His blast from the slot on the power play early in third pulled Columbus within 3-2. And then he wired a wrister from the rigt circle for the 6-3 final. Boqvist has five points, including three goals, on his current three-game point streak.

    Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault: Draws assist in return
    4h ago

    Marchessault logged an assist, five shots on goal, five hits and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Marchessault missed five games while in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but he put in a fairly standard performance upon his return. The 30-year-old is up to 14 points, 48 shots, 19 hits and six PIM in 16 contests this year. He picked up seven goals and two assists in the six games before his absence -- fantasy managers will hope he can pick up where he left off.

    Golden Knights' Max Pacioretty: Assists in consecutive games
    4h ago

    Pacioretty logged an assist, six shots on goal and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Pacioretty helped out on a Chandler Stephenson goal in the second period. The 33-year-old Pacioretty has an assist in each of the two games he's played since returning from a lower-body injury. The winger is up to five points, 22 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in four appearances overall, and he should continue to be a steady source of offense going forward.

    Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Too many goals allowed again
    4h ago

    Korpisalo yielded six goals on 33 shots in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.

    The game was only 3-1 heading into the third, but then the dam broke and the Blues put three goals in the net over a 12-minute span. The game was over at that point. Korpisalo has been a bit of sieve over his last four starts -- he has allowed 18 points in that span. He's the clear cut second choice in St. Loo. Activate Korpisalo when (or if) you're confident he'll help, not hinder your day or week.

    Stone notched an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Stone set up Chandler Stephenson for the Golden Knights' first tally of the game. The 29-year-old Stone hasn't found his scoring mitts often yet, but he has picked up a goal and eight helpers through nine appearances. The star winger has added 18 shots on net, six PIM and a plus-3 rating while working in a top-line role.

    Golden Knights' Chandler Stephenson: Attempts to spark comeback
    4h ago

    Stephenson scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Stephenson from Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty -- that's a welcome sight for Golden Knights fans and Stephenson's fantasy managers alike after a long run of injuries to forwards. Stephenson, for his part, kept the offense afloat, and he's up to eight goals and 20 points in 21 contests. He's scored in three straight games, and having his usual linemates back on the ice makes it more likely the 27-year-old can sustain his level of production.

    Oilers' Zach Hyman: Buries goal in win
    5h ago

    Hyman scored a goal on six shots and levied four hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Hyman's goal was a heartbreaker for the Golden Knights, as he tallied with just 16 seconds left in the first period to double the Oilers' lead to 2-0. Hyman hadn't scored in seven games entering Saturday. The winger has had little trouble producing offense generally with nine goals, six helpers, 60 shots on net and a minus-3 rating through 20 contests this season.

    Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: Buries second goal
    5h ago

    Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Nugent-Hopkins opened the scoring at 17:50 of the first period with his second goal of the year. The 28-year-old endured a four-game point drought recently, but he's still on a point-per-game pace with two tallies and 18 helpers in 20 appearances. Whether centering his own line or playing left wing, the Canadian forward has been an effective playmaker this year.

    Monahan notched a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

    Monahan set up Elias Lindholm's tally just seven seconds into a first-period power play. The 27-year-old Monahan has been a modest contributor with seven points through 13 games in November. The veteran center has 10 points (eight on the power play), 29 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 21 contests overall.

    Smith scored a goal on a team-high seven shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Chaos in front of Mikko Koskinen ended with Smith swatting the puck in at 4:04 of the third period. The 30-year-old Smith has scored five times in the last seven games, and he's up to nine goals and 15 points in 21 contests overall. He's added 69 shots on net and a plus-4 rating this year. His current pace extrapolates to roughly 60 points in a full season, a mark he's reached just once in his career in 2017-18.

    Foegele managed an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Foegele helped out on a Jesse Puljujarvi goal in the second period as the Oilers' new-look third line displayed some chemistry. The 25-year-old Foegele has been solid as a secondary scorer this year with two goals and six assists in 20 games. He's added 24 shots on net, 35 hits and a minus-6 rating.

    Kassian produced an assist and added four hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Kassian was the only member of the Oilers' top line to produce a point Saturday, and that's not a typo. The 30-year-old set up Zach Hyman on a breakaway for the Oilers' second tally of the game. Kassian has enjoyed his turn on the top with four points in his last two contests. The heavy-hitting winger has nine points, 51 hits, 27 PIM, 18 shots on net and a minus-3 rating in 16 appearances overall. As long as he's sharing ice with Connor McDavid, Kassian should carry some depth value in fantasy.

    Bouchard notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Bouchard set up Jesse Puljujarvi's second-period tally, which stood as the game-winner. Despite injuries to the Oilers' defense corps, Bouchard has seen third-pairing minutes in recent games. The 22-year-old blueliner has 11 points, 47 shots on net, a plus-5 rating and 33 blocks in 20 contests, so the semi-limited usage is a little puzzling.

The 30-year-old Barrie has three helpers in his last two games -- he's taking on a larger scoring role with the Oilers' blue line depleted by injuries. The Canadian defenseman has 12 points, 42 shots on net, 21 blocks and a minus-3 rating in 20 appearances.

    Stanley also left the game after taking a shot off the back, but he quickly returned to action. The 23-year-old Stanley continues to solidify his place in the lineup on the third pairing. He has six helpers, 23 shots on net, 51 hits, 23 blocks and 18 PIM in 21 appearances. The Ontario native is by no means a high-scoring force on the blue line, but he's earned the trust of head coach Paul Maurice through solid defensive play.

    The Flames spotted Markstrom a 2-0 lead early in the first period, but it was an all-around collapse for the home team. Markstrom wasn't as sharp as usual as he slipped to 8-4-4 in 16 starts. The 31-year-old has a 1.81 GAA and a .937 save percentage in what's been an excellent campaign so far. The Flames close out a homestand versus the Penguins on Monday.

And Zach Hyman made it 2-0 with 16 seconds left in the first when he lifted in a backhand on a breakaway. Jesse Puljujarvi stretched out the lead early in the second when he took a stretch pass and broke in alone. With the loss, Lehner's trend of alternating wins and losses continued.

He's winning despite his own efforts at times -- he allowed 19 goals in his last five games, including 13 in three games alone. Koskinen is a great play in leagues that overweight wins, but can be average in those with save percentage as a key deliverable.
