  • Aaron Ekblad scores in comeback win vs. BOS
    Aaron Ekblad netted his second goal of the year in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over Boston.

    Advice: Ekblad got the Panthers on the board 50 seconds into the third period to spark the team's comeback win. Florida was down 4-0 going into the third, but rallied for the come-from-behind win. Ekblad has supplied 10 points in 17 matches this year. Today, 7:31 am
  • Filip Hronek scores first goal in seven games
    Filip Hronek lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Anaheim.

  • Erik Karlsson posts three assists in win
    Erik Karlsson went for three assists in Tuesday's 6-3 victory against the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: Karlsson added a plus-3 rating, two shots on goal and three blocked shots over 22:34 of ice time across 28 shifts. It was Karlsson's first three-assist game since Jan. 8, which also just happened to be against the Oilers at SAP Center. While he has gotten off to a slow start by his standards, posting a goal with 14 points across 18 outings, he remains a must-start in all fantasy pools. Today, 1:51 am
  • Sean Walker records two points in victory
    Sean Walker posted a goal with an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 victory against the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: Walker finished with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and a pair of blocked shots over 24:35 of ice time across 25 shifts. He snapped a five-game pointless streak with his first career multi-point game in 57 NHL games. Today, 1:29 am
  • Matt Dumba lights lamp again
    Matt Dumba accounted for his team's lone goal in a 3-1 road loss against the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Dumba opened the season with a goal on Oct. 3 in Nashville, but he failed to light the lamp in 15 straight. He scored Saturday in Arizona, and now has goals in back-to-back games for the first time since rattling off goals in three straight from Nov. 13-17. He has one of the hardest slap shots in the NHL and it is starting to pay dividends lately. He'll look to make it three games in a row with a marker Thursday against Arizona. Today, 12:47 am
  • Cam Fowler lights lamp in OT home loss
    Cam Fowler finished with a goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime home loss against the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: Fowler also finished with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal across his 20:00 of ice time across 27 shifts. The goal was his first in five games in the month of November, and the fourth of the season. He'll look to keep up the good work in Thursday's visit from the San Jose Sharks. He had two assists in three outings against the Sharks last season. Today, 12:34 am
  • Dennis Cholowski registers OT winner
    Dennis Cholowski posted an overtime goal in Tuesday's 4-3 road victory against the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Cholowski didn't take any shots in regulation, saving his best shot for the overtime session. He ended up with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and four blocked shots with a hit. Cholowski has bounced back and forth between the ice and the press box. Despite the late-game heroics he is still only worth a look in deeper seasonal fantasy pools. Today, 12:15 am
  • Mattias Ekholm chips in with helper
    Mattias Ekholm posted an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 road loss against the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Ekholm ended up with a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot, a minor penalty and two hits across 22:30 of ice time across 28 shifts. The Swedish rearguard has managed three goals with 10 points across 18 outings making him a useful fantasy option in deeper pools. Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Colton Parayko bags his first of the season
    Colton Parayko scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: Parayko was helped out by Oskar Sundqvist and Ivan Barbashev on his goal at 15:41 of the second period to give the Blues a temporary 2-1 lead. He was very involved on the offensive end in this one, posting a game-high eight shots on net with three blocked shots and three hits. Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Zach Werenski posts two points in SO loss
    Zach Werenski posted a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Werenski finished the game with a team-high six shots on goal while adding a blocked shot and a minor penalty in his 25:26 of ice time across 30 shifts. He has gotten off to a slow start this season, posting just five goals and nine points across the first 18 games. However, he has goals in back-to-back games, and this was his first multi-point game since March 19 in Calgary. Werenski is starting to heat up and is a tremendous buy-low fantasy candidate. Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Adam Fox records first NHL multi-point game
    Adam Fox posted a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    Advice: There is something about Tuesday's in November which agree with Fox. He logged his first NHL goal last Tuesday in a win against the Tampa Bay Lightning and now he recorded his first multi-point NHL game also on a Tuesday. He has two goals and six points during a five-game point streak. He'll look to extend that streak Thursday as he gets another crack at the Lightning in Central Florida. Yesterday, 8:13 pm
