    • Marc-Andre Fleury has 32 saves in Pens' loss
      Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 32 shots but the Penguins were shut out 4-0 by the Capitals Wednesday night in Washington.

      Advice: It was Fleury's first appearance since last Sunday's All-Star Game. He was on the bench in the Penguins' win Tuesday. After Wednesday's loss, Fleury's goals-against average rose to 2.36 and his save percentage is .920. His record dropped to 22-10-5. Should fantasy players give up on him? Of course not. Fleury's numbers, when all is said and done, will be among the best of NHL goalies this season. This was merely a night when his teammates couldn't do much to help him. They were without Evgeni Malkin (lower-body injury). Rotoworld.com

    • Washington G Braden Holtby shuts out Penguins
      Capitals goalie Braden Holtby made 27 saves en route to a 4-0 shutout of the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night.

      Advice: It was Holtby's fifth shutout of the season. He was first-rate in this game after giving up four goals on 30 shots in a loss to Columbus Tuesday. Holtby has turned into an irrefutable workhorse. His start Wednesday was his 24th in Washington's past 25 games. His goals-against average is a nifty 2.25 and he has a .922 save percentage. His record is 23-10-8. In fantasy hockey, he is undoubtedly a keeper and has blossomed into one of the NHL's elite goalies. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonathan Bernier bounces back but Leafs lose
      Goaltender Jonathan Bernier turned in a solid effort but didn't get much support from his struggling Toronto teammates in the Maple Leafs' 2-1 shootout loss to the Devils in New Jersey Wednesday night.

      Advice: After allowing at least three goals in each of his last three starts, Bernier allowed only one goal in this one, but it came with only 2:50 left in the third period, tying the game at 1-1. After a goalless overtime, the Devils prevailed in the shootout. Bernier made 22 saves but the Leafs had trouble scoring against New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider, who made 29 saves. The Leafs have lost seven consecutive games, yet Bernier's record is still above .500, at 16-14-4. His goals-against average is .270 and his save percentage, .914. We recommend you stay away from Bernier in fantasy leagues or even one-night fantasy games, not because he's bad but because the team in front of him has become downright lamentable. Rotoworld.com

    • G Cory Schneider superb in shootout victory
      New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider stopped 29 of 30 Toronto shots before the Devils defeated the Maple Leafs 2-1 in a shootout Wednesday night in New Jersey.

      Advice: Schneider kicked aside 12 power-play shots by the Leafs, many of them off the sticks of James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak from close or point-blank range. Schneider also was fortunate when a blast by Leo Komarov from the left hash hit the far post midway through the second period. Schneider continues to improve for the Devils as the season progresses. He now has a very good goals-against average of 2.37 and a save percentage of .921 in a league-high 42 starts for NHL goalies in 2014-15. His record is 17-19-4. He wouldn't be a bad addition for the season's second half if he were available in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Corey Crawford to start Wednesday night
      Corey Crawford will get the nod in net Wednesday against the Kings.

      Advice: In his previous start against the Kings this season, Crawford made 19 saves on 20 shots in the win. He will look for his 19th win of the season Wednesday night; he also has a 2.26 goals-against-average and .921 save percentage in 30 games this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Conditioning stint likely for J. Gustavsson
      Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) will probably need to have a conditioning stint before he rejoins the Red Wings lineup.

      Advice: That stint in the minors could happen in the near future. Additionally, if he is sent down, it will probably just be for a game or two. He has a 2.30 GAA and .908 save percentage in just three games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Rob Zepp returns to the AHL
      Rob Zepp has been sent down to the minors.

      Advice: Zepp was summoned to give the Flyers a second goaltender while Steve Mason recovered from a knee injury. Mason was able to return on Tuesday, so Zepp's demotion was anticipated. Zepp has a 2.92 GAA and .889 save percentage in six games with Philadelphia. Rotoworld.com

    • Mrazek earning wins since Howard went down
      Petr Mrazek stopped 37 shots in a 5-4 win over Florida on Tuesday night.

      Advice: "Pete was OK (early on) but then good in the end," coach Mike Babcock said. "Pete has a way about him. He wins games. Sometimes the goals he gives up, you wonder 'why did that go in' but he wins the game. And in the end, that's what matters, winning games." He has posted five wins in six starts for the Red Wings since Jimmy Howard went down to injury. Tom McCollum was victorious against Buffalo on Jan. 18 after Mrazek was pulled, but that's been his only hiccup since he took over the team's crease. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Miller not sharp in loss to Ducks
      Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 23 shots to take the loss in Vancouver's 4-0 loss to Anaheim.

      Advice: Miller allowed two goals that he really wished he could have back in this contest. It is hard to pin this entire loss on him though as the Canucks were sloppy all-night and mustered just seven shots in last 40 minutes of this game (17 in total). Miller has lost back-to-back starts but still has a very solid 23 wins on the year to go with a 2.33 GAA and .917 save percentage. He will likely get the next start for the Canucks as they get his former team in the Sabres on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    • Semyon Varlamov plays well in loss to Preds
      Semyon Varlamov did the best he could, but he was unable to prevent a 4-3 overtime loss at the hands of the league-leading Nashville Predators Tuesday.

      Advice: Varlamov allowed four goals on 39 shots in the loss, but he played well enough to win. His 12-10-7 record looks worse it should, as his 2.70 GAA and .920 save percentage are a better measure of the way he has played this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Carter Hutton and Preds outlast Avs
      Carter Hutton allowed three goals on just 24 shots Tuesday, but skated away with a win as the Predators upended Colorado in overtime by a score of 4-3.

      Advice: Hutton has made four starts in place of the injured Pekka Rinne and has been mediocre at best in those outings, but playing behind such a potent supporting cast helps him retain his fantasy value. It's unclear whether he or Marek Mazanec will get the nod in Nashville's next game. Rotoworld.com

    • Viktor Fasth solid in loss to Minnesota
      Viktor Fasth allowed just two goals on 29 shots but was saddled with the loss in a 2-1 defeat to Minnesota on Tuesday.

      Advice: The Oilers had a ton of chances to give Fasth a different result in this game but in keeping with the disastrous season didn't help him out in the end. Fasth has two wins in his last three starts now however and the Oilers have showed some life with him in the crease of late. He is still a very risky play in any format. Rotoworld.com

    • Roberto Luongo rolled by Red Wings
      Roberto Luongo had a night to forget Tuesday as he allowed five goals on just 17 shots before being sent to the locker room.

      Advice: The Panthers fell behind Detroit by a score of 5-2 before Luongo was relieved by backup Al Montoya. Despite his struggles on this night, Luongo has delivered plenty of value for his fantasy owners with a 17-11-8 record to go along with a 2.43 GAA and a .920 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Kari Lehtonen defeated by Canadiens
      Kari Lehtonen allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens.

      Advice: It wasn't the greatest of performances for the Dallas goalkeeper, but Lehtonen settled in nicely after allowing two goals in the game's first 10 minutes. Considering his backup, Anders Lindback, has struggled mightily all season long, Lehtonen should get all the playing time he can handle down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

    • Devan Dubnyk leads the Wild to win
      Devan Dubnyk turned aside 23-of-24 shots to get a much deserved 2-1 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

      Advice: Dubnyk made an amazing kick save on an Oilers' breakaway attempt by Justin Schultz in the third period that really contributed to his team getting the win over his old team. It was a nice bounce back after two rough starts prior to the All-Star break. He looks to have solidified the crease for the Wild for the time being. Dubnyk is 12-6 with solid 2.58 GAA and .915 save percentage in 24 games this season. He is worth a start in all formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Carey Price stymies Dallas in winning effort
      Carey Price was rock solid on Tuesday night as he blocked 40 of 42 shots in a 3-2 defeat of the Stars.

      Advice: The Canadiens All-Star representative was a step ahead of the Dallas shooters all night long and was the main reason his team didn't get beaten. The fantasy stud owns a record of 25-10-2 for the year to go along with a 2.15 GAA and a .929 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Enroth suffers another bad loss
      Jonas Enroth allowed four goals on 31 shots to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat in Calgary on Tuesday.

      Advice: Jonas Enroth has now allowed 15 goals over his last five games (all losses). Enroth kept his team in the game until the Flames turned it up in the third period. With Neuvirth out, he looks like he will receive the run of the starts on this western road trip. We don't recommend starting him though as he is 11-18 on the year with a 3.43 GAA and .889 saves percentage in 32 appearances. Buffalo visits Vancouver next. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop stumbles in rare loss to Canes
      Ben Bishop wasn't sharp Tuesday as he allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

      Advice: The loss snaps a three-game win streak for the hulking netminder, who had seemingly just begun to rediscover last year's form. The poor performance drops his record to 24-8-2 while his GAA is 2.39 and his save percentage is .911. Rotoworld.com

    • Anton Khudobin defeats Lightning Tuesday
      Anton Khudobin continued his recent hot streak by stopping 28 of 30 shots in a 4-2 defeat of Tampa Bay.

      Advice: Khudobin's recent stretch has included wins in six of his last seven appearances and a run of eight straight games with two or fewer goals against. The Hurricanes haven't forgotten about de facto starter Cam Ward, but Khudobin's playing should be steady as long as he remains productive. His record is 6-8-2 while his GAA is 2.30 and his save percentage is .918. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas HIller gets the win for Calgary
      Jonas Hiller stopped 17-of-18 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over Buffalo on Tuesday.

      Advice: Hiller wasn't overly busy in this game but the only shot to beat him was a perfectly placed re-direct in front of his crease. This was his first start since January 9 and it looks like he now has the run of the starts as Joni Ortio was sent back to the minors for the time being. Hiller is 14-13 with a 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage on the campaign. Rotoworld.com
