  • Brown, Tennyson scratched vs Nashville on Sat
    Mike Brown and Matt Tennyson will both be scratched against Nashville on Saturday night.

    Advice: Unfortunately their fantasy value has been stymied by a whole lot of not playing. Tennyson hasn't played since Dec. 8th, and Brown hasn't played since Jan. 24th. The veteran pugilist's 119 hits and 59 PIMs are impressive though, so keep him in mind if you ever need a plug. Today, 4:26 pm

    Advice: Weber will pair with Cody Franson to form the team's third defensive unit. Through 32 games this season, Weber has posted four points, 32 PIMs, 32 blocks, and 64 hits. Decent rates for a reverse pool. Today, 3:27 pm
  • Martin Jones will face Nashville on Saturday
    Martin Jones will face Nashville on Saturday night.

    Advice: Thrice over his last five starts have three pucks beaten Jones in a start, while he went 1-1-1 to Minnesota, LA, and Anaheim, you have to imagine he and San Jose want better. Jones hosts a 24-14-3 record with a .915 save percentage and 2.37 GAA, and though he lost to Nashville in his one previous start one can also imagine the Sharks coming through with a better effort tonight. Today, 3:19 pm

    Advice: Just once over his last six starts have more than two pucks beaten Elliott in a start, admittedly that was Thursday to San Jose.

    Frederik Andersen has now won five straight games.

    Advice: Five wins and just nine goals against in the process, as Andersen turned away 23 of 25 Coyotes shots in Friday's 5-2 win.

    Antoine Vermette picked up a veteran's helper during Friday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim.

Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Jordan Staal has three pts in win over Jets
    Jordan Staal had a goal and two assists in Friday's 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: The Hurricanes jumped out to a 4-0 lead after 20 minutes, and Staal contributed a goal and an assist in that time. He also picked up the primary helper on Andrej Nestrasil's third period goal to restore a multi-goal lead for the Canes. Staal has eight points in his last six contests.

    Advice: Don't look now, but Andersen comes in having won each of his past four starts with just seven goals on 115 combined shots in that span.

    Jake Allen (lower body) has resumed skating.

    Advice: He is taking to the ice for solo sessions, which is a little encouraging. Allen hasn't played since Jan. 8 due to a knee injury. Brian Elliott has been excellent during Allen's absence, so the Blues won't rush him back before he is 100 percent. Yesterday, 7:16 am

    Petter Granberg is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Philadephia.

    Advice: The 23-year-old has no goals and one points in just six games this season. He's played sparingly since being claimed off waivers from Toronto. He has no fantasy value going forward. Thursday, 5:30 pm

    Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek stopped only 20 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning in Tampa Bay Wednesday night.

    Advice: Weber had dressed for 10 straight before the post-All Star break schedule scratch. Colaiacovo hasn't played in 10 straight, making this his 11th straight scratch. Neither rearguard has much fantasy value, but if you must, adjust your rosters accordingly. Wednesday, 3:59 pm

    Petr Mrazek will start Wednesday's game at Tampa Bay.

    Advice: He won two games and allowed just one goal heading into the break to give him 30 victories on the season. Mrazek has a 2.03 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage. Coach Jeff Blashill isn't sure who will start on Thursday against Florida yet. Wednesday, 5:26 am
  • Martin Jones makes 22 saves, takes loss
    Martin Jones allowed three goals on 25 shots in a 3-2 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

He's 23-14-3 so far in his first full season as a number one starter and has a 2.40 GAA and .914 save percentage to go with that record in 41 games. Fatigue hasn't gotten to him yet anyways it seems. Tuesday, 11:50 pm
  • Frederik Andersen makes 30 saves in win

    Advice: Andersen needed another start like this to get a back in the picture for the number one job in Anaheim. "He's basically the reason we won," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I thought we were pretty sloppy as a group and we didn't play as well as we've been playing. When that happens, you need your goalie." He has a ways to go with the way John Gibson has played but this was a good start. It should be noted that he has won four straight starts though it looks like a two-way race now for the number one job in Orange County right now. He brings his 2.37 GAA and .918 save percentage in 25 games into his next start. Tuesday, 11:12 pm
  • Brian Elliott blanks Preds on Tuesday night

"Price could rebound, recover and regain his status as Canada's top goalie, if not the world's top goalie, but Holtby this season is doing exactly what Price did last season for the Canadiens. He's the frontrunner for the Vezina Trophy and in the conversation for the Hart Trophy." Monday, 6:06 pm

  • Holtby turns away eight of 10 in ASG
    Braden Holtby turned away eight of the 10 shots he faced during the first half of Sunday's All-Star Game.

    Advice: Only a sly Erik Karlsson and a dashing Jaromir Jagr were able to beat perhaps the best netminder in the game. Nothing to be ashamed of there. Sunday, 2:54 pm
  • Braden Holtby could set NHL record
    Braden Holtby has 30 wins this season and a great second half could allow him to break Martin Brodeur's record of 48 wins in a season.

    Advice: The Capitals have played only 47 games, the least in the NHL, thanks to a couple of postponements due to the snowstorm that struck the Eastern Coast last weekend. Washington plays 35 games in 71 days once the NHL schedule resumes on Tuesday so figure that Holtby will get at least 27 starts, so he needs 19 wins to set the record. He could do it and is now the overwhelming favorite for the Vezina at the break. Saturday, 7:15 am

    Petr Mrazek played excellent during the month of January.

    Advice: He posted a 7-1-1 record along with a .952 save percentage and a 1.32 goals-against average in nine starts. Jimmy Howard received just two starts in January and he lost them both.

    Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby recorded 28 saves in regulation and overtime Wednesday night during a 4-3 overtime loss to the visiting Philadelphia Flyers.

He also has a save percentage of .929. He ranks nowadays as the best goalie in the NHL and so, obviously, he's a keeper in fantasy play. Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Braden Holtby Starts Versus Flyers
    Braden Holtby will be between the pipes Wednesday night when the Capitals host the Flyers.

    Advice: Holtby has a sizzling 30-5-2 record and will start his fifth straight. He's sporting a nifty 2.01 goals against average and sporting a .930 save percentage. Wednesday, 3:16 pm
  • Martin Jones picks up another win
    Martin Jones continued his stretch of good play by making 21 saves in a 6-1 Sharks' win over Colorado on Tuesday.

    Advice: That's seven wins in his last eight starts. While he hasn't been lights out over that stretch, he has done enough to win and nearly picked up a shutout in this game if it wasn't for a rocket of a shot off the stick of Nathan MacKinnon when the game was already well in hand. He improved his record to 23-13-3 to go with a 2.39 GAA and .915 save percentage in 40 games. Tuesday, 10:37 pm
