  • Braden Holtby bounces back with 20-save win
    Braden Holtby bounced back Saturday night with 20 saves in the Capitals’ 3-1 win over the Flames.

    Advice: Holtby gave up three goals in a loss to Edmonton a game prior, so this was nice to see. He’s a sleeper this season as someone who could reach the upper tier of the league’s netminders. Holtby is now playing behind a much more structured team defensively, so that should help his cause. He has a 1.92 goals-against average and .922 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Wideman scores in fourth straight game
    Dennis Wideman lit the lamp for the Flames, but they still lost to the Capitals on Saturday night 3-1.

    Advice: Wideman is on fire, with goals in four straight games, to give him five goals and six points on the year. While he is an offensive defenseman -- he recorded his 300th career point -- he won’t be shooting 31 percent for the entire season. Around 15 goals and 45 points is certainly possible with such a hot start. Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler got the assists. Brandon Bollig had 14 penalty minutes, while Curtis Glencross picked up 12.

  • Mike Smith's confidence growing; Yotes win
    Mike Smith blocked 23 shots in the Coyotes’ 2-1 overtime win against the Panthers on Saturday night.

    Advice: That’s more like it. Smith has now given up two goals in his last two outings, after giving up 16 over his first three. Arizona’s thin playoff hopes depend on Smith. He has a 3.80 goals-against average and .867 save percentage this season. Smith has the potential to be a pretty good fantasy netminder this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Pirri scores in second straight game
    Brandon Pirri notched the only goal for the Panthers in their 2-1 overtime loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

    Advice: Pirri now has two goals, the only ones of the year, in his last two games. The 23-year-old is trying to carve out a regular role in Florida, so he’s not playable yet in fantasy leagues. Tomas Fleischmann and Jussi Jokinen set up the goal. Nick Bjugstad led the team with five shots on goal. Rotoworld.com
