Player Notes

  • Collin Delia makes 32 stops as CHI loses 5-2 to TB
    Collin Delia allowed five goals on 37 shots as Chicago dropped their second game in a row, 5-2 to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Delia looked pretty good in the first period, but Tampa Bay woke up in the second and didn't look back. Delia allowed three goals in the first eight minutes of the second period and it seemed to suck the life out of Chicago for the rest of the night. The Blackhawks now finds themselves with two struggling goaltenders early on in a season where falling behind early in the standings might prove insurmountable. Both Delia and Subban should only be on fantasy rosters if GMs are in a desperate situation. Rotoworld.com 9 minutes ago
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy makes 35 stops in Lightning win
    Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 35 of 37 shots as the Lightning took care of the Blackhawks for the second game in a row.

    Advice: Vasilevskiy looked great again on Friday night as he stopped 35 of Chicago's 37 shots in the Lightning's 5-2 victory. Vasilevskiy was a brick wall all night long except for the two goals the Blackhawks scored in the second period. It's only two games into the season but the 26-year-old Lightning goaltender looks poised for another Vezina season as he currently holds a .950 save percentage. Rotoworld.com 16 minutes ago
  • Patrick Kane scores his first of the season vs. TB
    Patrick Kane found his way onto the score sheet but Chicago fell 5-2 to Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Kane and the Blackhawks made the game a little more competitive in the second period by scoring two straight goals to cut the Lightning lead to one. However, that was all they had in the tank as Tampa Bay scored two more goals in the third period to give Chicago their second loss in as many games. Alex DeBrincat also had a nice night, posting a goal and an assist. Chicago now face a two game series against the Florida Panthers, starting on Sunday night. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago
  • Steven Stamkos adds 1G and 1A in Lightning win.
    Steven Stamkos scored a goal and an assist in the Lightning cruised past the Blackhawks 5-2.

    Advice: Stamkos and the Lightning peppered Blackhawks' goaltender Collin Delia all night long, as the Lightning cruised to an easy 5-2 victory over Chicago. Stamkos assisted on Ondrej Palat's first goal of the game and scored the final goal to put the game on ice for the Lightning. Yanni Gourde also had a solid night with a goal and assist of his own. It looks like Tampa Bay players will be making fantasy GMs very happy as scoring seems to come easy to them. Tampa Bay will play Chicago six more times this season. Rotoworld.com 30 minutes ago
  • Casey DeSmith replaces Tristan Jarry in Pens loss.
    Casey DeSmith replaced Tristan Jarry midway through the first period as the Penguins lose 5-2 to the Flyers

    Advice: DeSmith faced just 13 shots and made 12 saves in two and a half periods of work but the Penguins just couldn't handle the Flyers as they lose 5-2. There are already question marks in the Penguins net, so fantasy GMs that have Tristan Jarry on their roster should stash DeSmith in case Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan decides to roll with whichever goalie has the hot hand at the time.

  • Tristan Jarry gets pulled as Penguins lose 5-2.
    Tristan Jarry got pulled after allowing three goals on six shots in the first period as the Penguins lose to the Flyers 5-2.

    Advice: Jarry played a total of 11:30 before getting yanked by the Penguins coach Mike Sullivan for allowing three goals on just six shots. Jarry getting yanked seemed to give Pittsburgh a bit of a spark but they were just overpowered by Philadelphia. Casey DeSmith looked pretty good in relief of Jarry so fantasy GMs should keep an eye on the Penguins goaltender situation. DeSmith might be worth a pick up for GMs with Jarry on their team.

  • Carter Hart makes 31 saves in Flyers 5-2 victory
    Carter Hart stopped 31 of 33 shots as the Flyers beat the Penguins 5-2.

    Advice: The Flyers got out to a three-goal lead in the first period. It looked like the Penguins were going to mount a comeback by replying with two quick goals, but Carter Hart was locked in. Hart stopped 31 of the 33 shots he faced and gave the Flyers their second straight win against Pittsburgh. Hart now has a .925 save percentage through two games this season.

  • Crosby scores in Penguins 5-2 loss to the Flyers.
    Sidney Crosby scored as the Penguins drop another game to the Flyers.

    Advice: Crosby looked like he was going to lead the Penguins to a comeback but they never found that tying goal, and the Flyers pulled away for the 5-2 win. Crosby scored just a minute and a half after Ivan Provarov gave the Flyers a three goal lead, and then Brandon Tanev scored to cut the lead to one but the Penguins offence dried up after that. The Penguins are going to have to get their act together quickly as they have a two game set against the Capitals starting Sunday afternoon. Rotoworld.com 49 minutes ago
  • Travis Konecny nets 3G and 1A in win vs. Penguin
    Travis Konecny scored a hat trick and added an assist in the Flyers’ 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    Advice: Konecny led the charge for the Flyers with three goals and an asist as they took care of business against the Penguins for the second game in a row. Konecny looks to be fitting in nicely along side Claude Giroux and Oskar Lindblom on Philadelphia’s top line. Both Giroux and Jakub Voracek also quietly put up two assists in the Flyers victory. But it wasn’t all sunshine and daisies for Philadelphia as Sean Couturier exited the game early with a shoulder injury and will be getting an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

  • Sean Couturier will get MRI on his shoulder
    Sean Couturier will get an MRI on his shoulder on Saturday, according to coach Alain Vigneault.

    Advice: Couturier left the game in the opening period and never returned. It was an innocent looking collision with Jared McCann but it seems like Couturier got the wrong end of it. The Flyers added they'd have another update in a couple of days. However, this doesn't appear to be a situation that is trending in the right direction. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:25 pm
  • NHL has removed Kasperi Kapanen from COVID list
    The NHL has removed Pittsburgh's Kasperi Kapanen from the COVID-19 protocol.

    Advice: Head coach Mike Sullivan was hopeful that Kapanen would be available "fairly "soon" on Friday morning and he will be pleased to know that Kapanen will be available moving forward. It's clear the Penguins could use all the help they can get. Depending where Sullivan decides to use him, Kapanen could be a player worth monitoring, especially if he ends up alongside either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:18 pm
  • James Neal and Gaetan Haas removed from COVID list
    The NHL has removed Edmonton's James Neal and Gaetan Haas from their COVID-19 protocol.

    Advice: Both players are now eligible to practice and play. It's added depth to the Oilers' lineup that split their back-to-back with the Vancouver Canucks to start the year. It's unclear whether Haas or Neal will suit up Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens but some light should be shed on the situation at Saturday's morning skate. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:14 pm
  • Carl Gunnarsson scratched on Friday night
    The St. Louis Blues have decided to scratch Carl Gunnarsson on Friday night for their game against the Colorado Avalanche.

  • Olivier Rodrigue added to Oilers' taxi squad
    The Edmonton Oilers have announced that Olivier Rodrigue has been added to their taxi squad.

  • Oilers place Mike Smith on LTIR
    The Edmonton Oilers have placed goaltender on long-term injured reserve.

    Advice: In a corresponding move, Olivier Rodrigue has been added to the taxi squad pending quarantine protocols. There was no update on Smith's status. Mikko Koskinen is a must own and will likely get the bulk of the starts until Smith is healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:59 pm

  • Matt Irwin a scratch against Capitals on Friday
    The Buffalo Sabres won't dress Matt Irwin on Friday night against the Buffalo Sabres.

    Advice: The only change for Buffalo from their lineup on Thursday night will be in goal. Irwin is a depth piece for the Sabres and has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:58 pm
  • Trevor van Riemsdyk scratched again on Friday
    The Washington Capitals won't dress Trevor van Riemsdyk on Friday night against the Buffalo Sabres.
